This is a perfect place for those looking to enjoy the splendid combination of sun, beach and culture that Havana, a city full of history and tradition, has in store.
Location: Directly on Playa del Este beach, in Playa Santa Maria del Mar; approximately 27 km from Havana and 100 km from the Varadero airport.

Excellent service, nice location, nothing negative!

We stayed here for a brief 3 days, and it was like an oasis after the oppressive heat and hectic Havana city centre.We got a taxi from the city which cost us 25 CUC, and took about 30 minutes. Most of the guests were part of travel packages so we were a bit different. I guess others had their transport provided. When we departed, the taxi to the international airport took about 40 minutes and cost 40 CUC. (Not so much bargaining power out in the sticks !)From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. The facilities and layout was explained and we were accommodated in a spacious ground floor room.The place has everything you need. A pool, a couple of bars, main restaurant and out of hours snack bar. The seemingly private beach is a five minute walk away down a wooden path and across a small lagoon, which in itself is a nice walk.All the staff were super friendly and helpful and several were also performers in the nightly cabaret, which is fun. (Even though the one we went to was predominantly in Italian).The food was plentiful and regular and the time slots wide enough to suit late or early diners.No complaints from us and thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay.

Excellent value

My family and I first went to Bravo Arenal in April 2017 and we've already booked a return trip for January 2018. The staff are lovely and attentive; the food was beyond what we expected; the rooms were clean and well cared for and the proximity to downtown Havana is a major bonus. The beach is beautiful and includes Cuban families (especially on the weekends). We loved being able to see local folks hanging out and enjoying the spectacular water and sand. We love birdwatching....and this area was full of great sightings. We loved that we could walk on the beach and visit Guanabo (a small, awesome town about 20 minute walk away). The hotel caters to a large Italian clientele, but this only added to the fun for my family and I; we learned many Italian phrases along with Spanish. I love that you are not in the middle of a large area of other hotels; it feels private, calm but still fun. This is a great place. For real.

Hello,I just came back from my vacation with my friend. I liked everything except the entertainment.90%of the people that work there and the visitors are Italian. I am ok. with that, because I speak the language, but for the people going there, that only speak English, it's not the best place.The beach is beautiful, the food was great, but the night time entertainment was very poor.I was expecting to see Cuban ballerinas, like in other resort that I've stayed previously. Not even 1 time :(Too bad there were a lot of mosquitos. I came back with more then 100 bites. Weather was not bad..Workers where very polite and friendly. The place is very safe also.Hopefully next time I come, night time show will be better and not so boring...Regards;Rosa

Nice all included resort by the beach close to Havana

Goods: Rooms really cleaned. Good food and choice not so bad for Cuba. Close enough to Havana to spend the day there. Free shuttle bus to Havana from Thursday to Sunday. You can go walk in the little town of Guanabo to discover the life of local Cuban. Very safe.Bads: public beach very dirty (hotel doesn't do anything to clean the section of the beach used by their customers) but nice in the water. Clients mostly italians with family and kids, not very considerate for non-italian and extremely noisy at the buffet.

Lovely stay

Stayed here for 2 days before a cruise. Lovely hotel near the beach. 45mins from the airport. Food was great and the hotel staff couldnt do enough for you. Especially George and girls on front desk. Mainly Italians at this hotel but that was fine
