stayed here in March 2017. For two weeks. Long drive from the airport with not much scenery. We had an ocean front view which was very nice.. After our first week in this room. The room next door had trouble with the toilet so a few rooms got flooded. When we went to the front desk they were not too happy about moving us to another room. The guy on the front desk said there was no rooms available. When the maintenance man said the room was contaminated and we could not stay there. They finally moved the three sets of people to other rooms ours was much nicer than the other. The next day we complained to our Sunwing Rep he took the complaint to management who were very apologetic and explained the guy at reception had no authority to move us that was why he was saying was saying there was no rooms. We were compensated with a lobster dinner and a bottle of rum.The people on the whole were very nice and friendly. Food was average for Cuba. You would not go hungry there was always something to eat. My husband. Loves. Soup. And fish and there was always this on the menu at lunch and dinner. They had great coffee at the bar 24 hours a day. Entertainment staff were good and kept you busy during the day with games etc. night time entertainment at night they brought people in this was okay, these people also entertained in the dining room at dinner. Pool was good the beach amazing you could walk for quite a long way. There is only one resort in this area so only people around that belongs to the resort. I would go back to this hotel again not for a week as you are spending a whole day almost on travel. I would stay 10 days to 2 weeks.
I wanted a nice and quite 2 week vacation from my health problems so a friend of mine told me about this place. I can not say anything bad about this resort, the grounds were well maintained and kept extremely clean, my room was all renovated and there was a toilet seat plus extra paper. My housekeeper Yanelys was proffessional, room 1113, she kept my room spotless and made sure that I had a bottle of water every day, which I placed on the fridge. She made sure, if I needed something , that it was looked at as soon as possible. She was very caring and I thank her for all the extra work. The buffet restaurant was open and airy, had an wonderful staff on the grill that will cook your eggs any way you liked, it had a fair choice of hot and cold items with a spaghetti station that was busy but flowed with ease, The whole restaurant staff were superb.They offered wine,beer or pop during both lunch and dinner.My only complain was their selection of desserts, very limited, but I did enjoy their ice cream, two flavours, and my compliments to the chef that did the flan, yummy, I ate it every night.I rate this buffet restaurant 10 out of 10 and one of the staff in all the hotels I have stayed in Cuba.( see photos).The pool bar is open 24 hours and is well maned but unfortunatly to many chiefs and not enough workers there, I used a walker and stood by the bar, after my first drink they would pass by me and never asked if I wanted another, which was ovious that I want another. I must state that all the ground keepers and maintenance workers were extremely pleasant and helpful to me.I found the pool clean, except for a few days that they ran out of chlorine. The snack bar was basically non existant, except for some leftovers put out from the buffet, in the 2 weeks I was there I saw about it being used once or twice a day, even the cuban guests did not touch it. I understand that they had hamburgers and ham and cheese sandwichs at the beach bar, never made it due to being handicapped. At the end this a big issue, mostly for some one like me that has mobility problems. NO MATTER HOW MUCH EVERYTHING WAS< THE MOSQUITOS TOOK IT ALL AWAY> I will never return nor can I recommend this resort to any one, unless you enjoy getting bitten and itching night and day. Extremelly dissappointed that I had a terrible vacation and for the first time ever going to beautiful Cuba. a waste of time and money.. This is no bad refection to the management team and all the other staff memebers, they all work very hard to make sure the guest are looked after because they do not control the weather or nature. TO BAD. I will just have to located a resort like this one but that is bug free. The hotel should have some calomine cream available, even at a price for the guests. Ihad to have injections to help with the itch ( see photos). They do have an excellent gift shop with fair prices...
Visited this hotel with 40 friends this last week and let me tell you that if not for the good company we would have had a horrible time. The bugs were horrendous and food was okay but only on occasion. They drive around spraying this bug spray out of a large tube that smells like diesel fuel and tar. You couldn't help but inhale the smoke no matter where you went. Pool was always dirty but we went in anyways and enjoyed ourselves. The beach was beautiful but couldn't relax on the beach because of all the sand bugs that were eating us alive. I wouldn't recommend this resort to anyone. Over 2 hour bus ride and very bumpy along the way. If you like to explore there is nothing to do unless you want to drive an hour or more. The staff were on "island time" so getting issues resolved took some time. They were nice enough but there was no sense of urgency. Many of our group went without hot water in their rooms for most of the week and the water pressure was pathetic. We were unaware at the time but the resort just recently opened for the season so I guess many of the maintenance issues were being worked on during our stay so I assume it will get better as the season progresses. The entertainment was repetitive and didn't change much from day to day...neither did their music playlist which was a bummer. Same 50 songs on repeat all week. We woke up in the middle of the night to a leak in our ceiling which dropped all over our clothes. The maids were fantastic and same with most of the bartenders. If you decide to stay there I could only hope you have a better experience then our group did.
Have hesitated and hesitated to do this review. Spent 2 weeks at Brisas Covarrubias in April. Before going any further I have been to Cuba many times enjoy the island and love the people. The bus ride to the resort is long and very bumpy. The beach is quite nice. Most of the staff are great, found some of the men bartenders expect a tip every time especially at the beach bar. The renovated rooms are nice. Two days before leaving began vomiting and diarrhea really ill very unusual have been to Cuba about 35 times this was first time sick. I am not sure of the cause had a bacterial infection. It may have been caused by the lemon slush (non alcoholic) at the beach bar. Have drank this at other Cuban resorts. It was most likely stale and sat too long in the sun and formed bacteria or it could have been something in the food who knows?? But I do know it took 4 weeks to recuperate after arriving home. Would I return to this resort? No! Also would not recommend Cova! I did meet many nice fellow Canadians!!
My husband and I have visited this resort for the last 4 years........Travelling usually in Feb/Mar/April, this destination has everything to offer the traveler looking to relax, soak up some beautiful Cuban weather! This February, will mark our 5th year travelling to Brisas Covarrubias! Our Cuban Family live here and the entire staff are helpful, inviting, and just a pleasure to get to know! They all know us by our first names, and our rooms are spotless, very well maintained by the maid service on a daily basis. Air Conditioners are all in working order and there have been many updates to this resort! It managed to survive this last hurricane with minimal damage! Currency exchange is made in an office, away from the main check in area. There are several excellent massage therapists on site, as well as a Doctor on site daily, with a nurse in the office over night! The beach is pristine! Silvery white sand, catamaran rental, paddle boat rental etc. Al A Cart's can be booked upon arrival, which are not expensive, but very delicious and romantic!Please look into this resort when planning your next destination! It's worth looking at! Yours truly, This Happy Couple!
