Brisas Santa Lucia
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This year will be my 3rd trip to Brisas. The first time I went with 5 friends and 2 years ago I went by myself. Enjoyed both trips and can't imagine going anywhere else for New Years. The staff are very friendly and both times I've gone, the rooms have been very clean. Never a problem getting assistance if something needs attention. The food...it's Cuba, but I can honestly say I enjoy it. For pickier eaters there is always fresh fruit, a pasta station and omelets in the morning are delicious!! I've never gone hungry there. This year I am bringing 2 friends who have never been to an all inclusive or out of Canada and they are so excited!! If you want to go to a place where the staff cares, it's clean...I would highly recommend Brisas. See you all Dec. 28th!!!
Popped into Brisas to see my amigos! Many of them have worked in all the resorts on Playa Santa Lucia over the past 10 years that I have been a tourista. Many changes with ongoing upgrades and more to come in 2018. Hopefully funding will help with the rooms as they do need some TLC. Annia [ previously pr at Mayanabo ] and now heading up the team at Brisas is a very responsive and responsible management person. Always stays in touch and looks out for the clients needs. Saw my mariners at the boat house as well. Most were trained at Caracol over the years so we go back a decade of fun in the sun,Sadly the shallow water and debris from the cruise ships and their filth is taking its toll in the remaining snorkeling area off the white gazebo out to the white buoy. Very little new growth or as many fishes as a few years ago. The beach has plenty of palapas and is very safe for children. Also sandier in the ocean there.I love the large chess and checker sets. Love the water features. The piano sculpture man is still there by the restaurant. The centre court is a pleasant place to have a drink and also has the covered area plus fountain. Nice furniture in the front lobby. The cadeca has been removed but you can get the best rate in the commercial centre. Taxis are cheap locally to access the other resorts. You can walk the beach and have a look at all of them. Youâ€™re welcome to visit but be polite.Didnâ€™t have time to stay this visit as it was just a week. The chamber maids do a great job of keeping things clean and tidy. Spent 6 weeks there after the hurricanes in 2008.The pool and surrounding deck was well utilized by lots of touristas. All in all, a comfortable place to stay!
Our family had a nice vacation with three other families. We had good weather. The rooms were clean. We found the pool area to be very loud, and our room was very close to the entertainment, which also made things very loud in the evening. The food was nothing special at all, even compared to other similarly rated resorts in Cuba. The beach was fairly weedy, and was cleaned occasionally.
The hotel needs a lot of TLC. Old old rooms, some people without a toilet seat, but by Cuban resort standard, a comfortable bed and functional air conditioning (thank God, it was 30 degrees + every day). No bugs, clean enough. Overall staff polite. Entertainment was poor. Blasting music for the first 4 days, all day until the early hours, until we raised a complaint. No siesta possible. Posted events did not occur, meaning no dance lessons, no aqua form, no Spanish lesson. We will not even mention the Gym which is a complete joke that no one used. Entertainment staff really really pretentious (Luigi in particular) and very boring...repetitive shows, must agree with previous comment, disrespectful comments at time, bad jokes about Canadians. Food is marginal for Cuban resort standards. Uncovered dishes open for flies to enjoy!!No activities on the beach and speaking of the beach Oh my GOD!!! Despite the sheer beauty of the Caribbean ocean, floating garbage mixed in with see-grass which both littered the beach constantly (countless plastic items such as cups and bags, old sandals and shoes, pop bottles, yogurt containers, pill bottles etc.... we even found a tube of toothpaste with a toothbrush. We witnessed several guests and locals treating the beach as a garbage can, literally tossing plastic cups, cans and bottles in the water. We have never seen Cuba in such poor state before. This is worldwide problem and a huge wake-up call. We are now going to advocate for solutions.For a cheap gateway, was the investment worth it? Up to you to decide. We will not be recommending the hotel to anyone. The 4 star is not reflective of the quality. We will end on a positive note for our marvelous Transat representatives, Jorge and a wonderful women whose name I cannot recall, did their very best to accommodate.
Fantastic week at Brisas, great rooms thanks to Annia.As usual staff was A 1, weather was great 35 degrees and up everyday.Animation was excellent , thanks to Judy, Luigi, Julio and all the gang.Can't wait to go back.Unfortunately we missed the foam party by 2 days.
