Very nice hotel

better than we expected - sea was warm and calm - staf were lovely - hotel is huge but we could still access entertainment - like playing pool, going out on the pedalos. Would recommend this hotel and the excursions we went on were also very good value.

Fantastic Christmas and new year

We traveled as a family of 11 to Playa Pesquero for my husbands 50th birthday and Christmas and new year. This was a very busy period for the hotel, but the staff and the service was amazing throughout our whole stay. This place has everything for a family, or couples to enjoy their holiday. yes some of the rooms have seen better days, but the staff keep them impeccably clean, and the beds are comfortable, and we found English tv channels , which was a bonus. The restaurant staff work so hard constantly on the go. We went to two gala evenings and several A'lacarte, and they make these experiences really special. My husbands birthday was made really special too, and the provided a cake and sang happy birthday. We upgraded for the two of us for one night to the premium rooms as a special treat. The premium side is on another level. The rooms , pool and restaurant are all 5 star luxury. it was however very quiet, as it only caters for adults, so i would not have wanted to stay there for two weeks, but great if that,s what you are after, and you can always come across to the busy side. Fantastic resort and memorable holiday. We will be back guys, thank you so much for a wonderful holiday.

Avoid at all cost

Arrived at location after being delayed by 3 hours. Room was below acceptable standard dated dirty and mouldy and smelling of damp. Food in restaurants cold and inedible unless you queue for cook to order. Poolside area poorly maintained and dirty. Entertainment dreadful . This hotel is not as advertised by Thomas Cook and need to re evaluate this location. This falls well bellow the star rating given. Worst holiday we have ever had. All faults reported were done by 3rd time of asking .

So Disappointed not the same hotel I stayed in 5 years ago!!

I came here 5 years ago and have vowed to go back again. I finally did on 1st January 2018 after persuading my friend it was great. Roll forward 5 years and wow what a difference and not for the better. This was such a disappointing holiday. The food was incredibly poor and in many cases questionable about whether it was safe to eat. Left out on display far too long with no temperature control and quite frankly inedible. The Al a carte restaurants gave some reprieve over the 2 weeks where at least in 3 of them the food was lovely. The Beer Garden was our salvation as fresh tapas was cooked on demand thank god and the staff there were bloody great. The rooms were tired and the beds smelled damp and fusty. I removed a pillow case and wished I hadn't as the fifthly pillow underneath was shocking, I did not dare look any further. Thomas Cook resort reps distinctly underwhelming. I have reported all of this to Thomas Cook on my return and declined a voucher from them. I do not want compensating I want them to work with the hotel to get it back to the beautiful place I visited 5 years ago. At this time I would say avoid, it's the Caribbean equivalent to BUTLINS.

Worst hotel I have ever stayed in.

First and last visit to Cuba , this hotel has seen to that .I have never in my 35 years of travelling the globe heard and seen so many people complaining about a hotel. Rooms were adaquate but smelt musty , in buffet areas,consistently cold .My rating for the food — sh***. A lot of people we met had upset stomachs . Pool area was nice except slabs hadn’t been cleaned for months .when it rained the black in the slabs turned to slime would stick to your feet .Very unpleasant. Hotel is too big and not enough staff to satisfy customer demand.staff were fantastic under conditions they were working under.Pool staff only come back if you tip them . My first all inclusive hotel. Not a good experience.hotel is no way 5* .Roy Orbison must have rated this hotel ! . If you care about quality, AVOID.
