This resort complex is made up two sister hotels offering the use of both their facilities for double the enjoyment! It is perfect for beach lovers of all ages, set on one of the most beautiful beach areas of Playa Esmeralda. Try your luck on the driving range, take a pottery lesson, explore the area on an eco-tour of the superb gardens and outstanding natural environment of Bahia Naranjo National Park, play a round of mini-golf, take a dip in the large free-form pools or, at dinner time, try one of the two restaurants on the beach.
Location: Beachfront, 5 min from Guardalavaca, 53 min to Holguin, 60 min from the airport.

Amazing beach with lovely staff.They really made an effort to give us the extra attention for our honeymoon.The hotel is a bit dated but really clean. They are renovating the rooms.I do advise to go on the catamaran trip which includes swimming with dolphins and snorkeling.

Cuba 2017

What can I say. "Amazing" I'm a single mum and like to travel with my 7 year old daughter This hotel was amazing haven't been to Cuba for 12 years and forgot how beautiful it was Hotel was amazing with lots of staff and great management to keep it running smoothly Food was really good having a fussy 7 year old eater there was always something for her to eat. Breakfast was brilliant with all Fresh food being served with an amazing selection of freshly squeezed fruit smoothies Eggs just how you liked them to be cooked and fresh meat being cooked for you. Dinner had a full selection of food with all fresh fish meats and salad freshly cooked just how you like. Evening meals where the same great buffet selection and always fresh produce cooked in front of you. The waitresses here where amazing and all very friendly and efficient and always served you with a smile. The place as a whole is beautiful the beach is out of this world with white sands and blue sea. A place where i relaxed while my daughter played in the kids club with total peace of mind. My daughter really connected with Rosie in the kids club and loved spending time with her. Rooms could do with a slight upgrade apart from that it was a very clean hotel Rooms where cleaned every day with fresh towels. Overall I had an amazing time here and will definitely be returning back again next year

Best holiday Staff ever

We were there in 2016 during hurricane Matthew. The hotel and staff could not do enough to keep us safe. Rebooted for 2017. Our 4th visit because we just love the people and the hotel/staff. Brilliant beach, really nice food and drink.
