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.

Cool hotel for mostly Italians

I stayed there in February with a small group of people. While the food and the service in the restaurant were great we felt disappointed by the beach because it was full of broken glass so that it was kind of dangerous to walk there.The towel service for the pool was also poor since some fellow guest and I found wet dirty towels from the previous guest in our rooms. We were asked to bring the dirty towel to the spa... what a joke!

Disappointed with this resort

Our vacation with Transat was a 2 week combo - 1 week Cuba cruise and 1 week at Bravo Arenal. The cruise was great. Had a wonderful time; great entertainment every night, lots of activities to keep you busy, good food, good excursions, very comfortable cabin.I would recommend this cruise however, not so much the Bravo Arenal resort. We've been to other resorts in Cuba so I have an idea of what to compare it to. We did not receive a "welcome" pamphlet with information about the resort, i.e. activities, dining, etc. instead we got a 3"x 3" piece of paper with hrs of operation at the various locations, nothing else. Other comments are correct about the Italian connection; they are catered to. Most of the activities done by the animation team were in Italian down at the beach. The guests at the pool were ignored until 4 pm when they had a 1/2 hr dance class. There was nothing else to do. By the 3rd day I was bored out of my mind. At other resorts there was always morning and afternoon activities of some sort. The only advantage for this resort is it's proximity to Havana. The ocean water was fabulous, warm and crystal clear, however the beach had a lot of seaweed washing in everyday. Also, lots of human garbage everywhere; cans, plastic bags & bottles, etc. it was disgusting. Can't believe people are such pigs!!! The government should have crews cleaning up the beach. The food was terrible (even for Cuban standards); not much variety; only white bread/buns were offered (I guess they haven't heard of multigrain bread); can't have coffee with dinner - have to go to the bar. The service in the dining room was excellent. Our room was adequate and the cleaning lady did a great job. We also experienced problems regarding hot water (suggest early morning showers). The common areas were kept very clean. The evening entertainment starts at 10 pm, which is late for us; the loud music continues well into the early morning. In closing, I would not recommend this resort to my fellow Canadians.

Beautiful hotel and beach

I stayed here for 3 nights while traveling with a friend. The rooms were beautiful and clean. Staff were very friendly and the beach was stunning would definitely recommend staying here it has the perfect mix as its 20 minutes to Havana but has a stunning beach.
