Awful hotel, don't go if you're English

No one speaks English, hotel entertainment is foreign language and they refused to translate for me and my family. The rooms looked like no one had used the room for months... Dead bugs everywhere, in the beds, shower and wardrobe. Bed sheets had crushed crabs and spiders. The food was awful, no English labels and didn't look appetising at all. This is a budget hotel in the middle of nowhere, my family and I had to purchase another hotel and will not be returning there again... Totally ruined our Cuba experience

Why Go Anywhere Else?

I have been many times to Cuba and to other beach hotels...this is the one to which I return again and again. The setting is special, the grounds are large and well kept, you have an assortment of drinks and snacks available and can go from the huge pool across a bridge to the sea. The resort is private, but if you want you can walk along the beach to either of two small towns nearby. The food is delicious and you will get fat from the buffet unless you take advantage of the free salsa lessons, games and other exercise. The best part of Hotel Bravo Arenal is the staff, who are unfailingly friendly and helpful...whatever your language.

Great, isolated beach resort

The Bravo Arenal resort is very good by Cuban standards. Clean, quiet, secluded and safe. It's owned by Italians with a Cuban/Latin theme. Food is OK, but try to be open minded and remember that you're in Cuba. The Government only allows 5lbs of food per Cuban per month, so be happy that you're eating 3, rather large meals per day here. The Bar is good, basically Mojitos, Cervezas, and anything you can mix with rum. Rooms are huge and very secure. I had no issues with safety. Rooms also come with electronic keypad safes for your valuables. I was surprised to discover the TV worked and received stations like CNN Intl, BBC world, ESPN and Starz, and not censored. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Everyone speaks Spanish and some Italian with little to no English. A cab ride from the Havana report should take 30-45 minutes depending on traffic and should cost no more that 40CUC. If you can speak Spanish and negotiate, you can get it down to 30CUC. The hotel does offer a free shuttle bus to/from Old Havana that runs Thursday through Sunday, and you must sign up for it in advance as the 25 seats fill up quickly. The bus leaves the hotel at 10am and dropping off/picking up on Cuba Tacon near Parque Cespedes. The shuttle picks up from Havana at 430pm.

Not 5*, but excellent hotel

Really clean, friendly place to stay: lots of ice, free food and free drinks - saw no abuse of either. Pool area is clean and spacious and excellent beech is a 5-minute walk. Would come back in a heartbeat.
