Great price $558 each went as a couple with a very dear friend. We've travelled 12 times together since 2006 and have had some experiences. I must say that we've never had a bad time in Cuba. We always make our own good time even if the weather is bad or if people try to spoil it. Life is too short to be harbouring bad vibes so enjoy your self! Room 148 was where we stayed tons of hot water, no bugs, A/C worked, clean room, phone works, maid Mirelda was lovely, showered her all week with gifts and money She deserves it she works so hard lovely gal. Luisa Tour Rep is awesome she works hard too gave her lots of gifts , she was great company to talk to. See Hector at the beach bar he is always smiling get the cod fish & chips they are delicious! Take the daily trip into Cienfuegos its a must we went to Benny Mores for drinks. Exchange your money at the front desk we did no problem. No hair dryers, bring an adaptor, no mosquitos that week. Thanks to our happy table of 10 Denene Shane Roy Nancy Darwin Dianne Dixon, we Maxine Dave and Judy say it was a pleasure to meet you all so much fun with you guys made this trip worthwhile. Buy some souvenirs from the gift shop wood carvings, Cuban licence plates, cars, and jewellery just to name a few things reasonably priced.! We did. My only dislike was the pool was very cold, too cold for me so no swimming that week and the ocean wasn't all that warm either. I'll probably not return here but will venture back to Varadaro in September and Cayo Coco next. I Love the dark Havana Club rum with coke Cheers!
This was our first time to this resort. In comparison to other 3 Star hotels we have stayed at in Cuba this it was just ok. The food was average for Cuba. Our only complaint about the food is that it did not stay warm for long at the buffet. The bar at the beach served a nice lunch of fish or hamburgers and fries at lunch and was very good. The bars were well stocked and never ran out of beer. The entertainment is very simple and very average. The pool is large and was very cold for this time of year but maybe because there was a lack of humidity even thou the temperature during the day was high 20's and the nights were cool. One pro was the closeness to the city of Ceinfugos only 25 min. We took the free bus in to the City (Which is on Fridays) and glad we did. The castle in Trinidad we heard from others was worth while visiting.
in november and december of last year(2016) i had the pleasure of once again visiting the ranch as its called again.this makes about 30 times that i have been there and each and every time i become more impressed with this hotel.dollar for dollar you cant beat this resort.the grounds are immaculate.everything is painted with fresh colourful colours and the huge pool is just sparkling clean and clear thanks to Louis...the staff at this resort are friendly and courteous and go well beyond the call of duty to make sure every client is well taken care of...Georgina and Anabel in the public relations office will do everything in their power to help you if you need their help...then theres rolly a tall thin well dressed good looking guy is usually around the lobby and hes superman...he can get or do anything you may need or solve any problem you may encounter. Geisy another staff member is great as well and very very helpful to all the clients.Down by the beach there is a quaint thatched roofed large hut where you can have lunch and drinks if you so choose.The buffet has wonderful choices in meals and the food is not only great but hot and there is always a chef on hand to cook you something right there.the staff in the buffet are excellent as well.there you will find an always smiling very very helpful george...you can't miss george hes the bald guy with the million dollar smile.If while visiting the ranch you decide you'd like to visit the city there is a free bus going in at 9am and returns around two or three.if you want to experience the real cuba i suggest you try this hotel and i'm quite sure you won't be disappointed roy moore ns.Canada hope to see you there soon
20 times in Cuba, at different hotels, always going off to the real Cuban world away from the resort.FLIGHT with Cubana for $628 taxes in, departed toronto 6:30 AM , in time for lunch at the hotel, delayed 8 hours returning for unknown reasons but got an extra day at the hotel until 4 ish, great for me...ACCOMMODATION: typical Cuban 3 star hotel with architecture like many others, clean place, ladies: there are NO HAIRDRYER in the rooms and bring an adaptor if you want to plug ours, it will run at half its power but.. also no little shampoo/conditioner bottles, just little soap bars. TV, AC work fine with english channels, thin pellow like everywhere in Cuba but beds were good in my room. The safe is free and uses the room card, no problem for getting two key cards. We left our safe wide open in plain view one day, maid came in and did the room and nothing ( money,air tickets, jewellery) was missing, amazing.Don't pay extra for ocean view, all rooms are basically the same as the ocean is more than 100 meters away. 3 two storey building, lower units have patio but not the uppers. Our patio door was hard to lock so we did not use it much. A LA CARTE: one restaurant, no real need to reserve ( was there 3 times without reservation) but food there is also limited to chicken, pork, fish and sometimes beef and shrimps. no fuss there, just shorts, sandals and a shirt. Don't expect fancy coffee or dessert. BUFFET: relatively good for a 3 star, you will find something good to eat but repetitive as all buffets. Omelette in the morning, pasta station at lunch and dinner with usually and main meat on the grill ( fish,pork, chicken ....) freshly fried potato warm chips all the time, fruits, tomato, cucumbers, cabbage ( no lettuce)......you picture it.SNACK BARS; two of them , one by the pool, one on the beach, good for snacks, french fries, pizza, sandwiches....BARS: the main bar is in the lobby which is the center point of the hotel, always people there to socialize with , also a bar by the pool steps away and one on the beach but limited to the usual drinks/beer. Do bring your mugs for larger drinks. Beer was always cold. All bartenders were quite efficient considering the large crowd at prime times. BUGS/MOSQUITOS : never saw oneWEATHER ; you can't control but we had 8 days of full sun, not a cloud, 31 celsius.THINGS TO DO: a timely bus to Cienfuegos daily at 9, returns to hotel at 12:45 hrs, a bonus to spend time in both worlds, Also goes to disco/shows on Friday night departs 9 PM and returns 1 AM. Museum : 2 CUC, not worth it, no english. The fortress across the channel is 5 CUC, supposed to have english guide but doesn't, great history there but again unless you read/speak spanish, you are missing most of the significance of it. A boat also bring you to downtown Cenfuegos for 1 CUC from there near Hotel Pasacaballo, at 10 AM then you can return to the hotel with the bus for free.BEACH: good size for the resort, plenty of chairs, pedal boats, kayaks, catamaran, public beach with short walking distance, not many annoying vendors trying to sell anything to the tourists. TIPS; as you feel, good service regardless but remember, $$$ go a long way for these people. ENTERTAINMENT; limited to what they have, sometimes with the help of the guests, always something for one hour at night, then some music for another hour.GUESTS; older crowd so not very many unruly people, not seen anybody falling on the floor drunk but this changes from week to week as people rotate through, many many returned customers so.....I can go on and on but you got the idea, if you need help decide, message me, I always like to talk about Cuba, just look and price for next week is $508 taxes from Toronto....like 2 days in Niagara....what is there to loose, have a great trip....
First make sure you have an adapter for 220/110 voltage if you require to use any appliances. Or ask room attendant if she has one to borrow for your time there. Tips are always welcome. Typical Cuba, but you go for the experience right. Make plans for your excursions‚Äč with the local people. You can see alot more. A must is Trinidad, wear sturdy and comfortable shoes. Camera at the ready. The dolphin show is great to see, or experience for more pesos. Take a cab, or walk by the beach your choice. The best food I found was at the beach bar, the restaurant was good but repeats the dishes. A full turkey dinner was a treat however. If you go with no expectations of a typical North America or European‚Äčholiday, you may be pleasantly surprised. Good luck and keep traveling.
