- All Inclusive Features
Surprised with this hotel. This was our 5th time in Cuba, usually stay in 4+ or 5 stars in Cuba, but this year could not find the deal, so we took a chance on this hotel.It is an old hotel, with very dated rooms. We only slept and showered in the room, so it did not bother us. Bathrooms were very clean, hot water and good pressure. Other than furniture being old and beds uncomfortable, everything was above our expectations. Excellent staff, nicest people, very clean resort, variety of good food, nice beach, pool, everything was very good, gardens beautifully maintained. If you are not bothered by an old furniture and all you want is a week of sun in a beautiful setting, with nicest people, relaxing and enjoying your days - you will not be disappointed.
It is very good value for your money.What we enjoyed:The rooms were spacious and well cleaned. The shower was amazing for Cuba, nice and hot and lots of pressure.(Note we did ask for a room change which was accommodated promptly ..would not recommend 2215)The beach was nice and shallow and you can walk forever on either side. There is seaweed but it usually cleaned up efficiently….except for one day day where there was +++ wind. The food was excellent. The buffet had good variety and all of the a la cartes were very good.A town is nearby and it is interesting to visit to experience a real cuban environment.Nice laid back feel of the resort…the music is not always pounding at the beach which is appreciated:)The washrooms throughout the resort are great, the best we have seen in Cuba(our 5th time)Nice coffee bar.Fresh coconuts readily available.Nice ice cream bar.Fresh fried donut sticks were very good.My husband and son did the catamaran excursion with nexus and they both enjoyed it. Our son enjoyed the disco.Any opportunities of improvement are smallNon of the bars had blenders so no authentic pina coladas or blenderized drinks. Our daughter loves non alcoholic pina coladas but there were non to be had. A suggestion…possibly the slushy machines could suffice and be filled with pineapple/pina colada juice??It would be nice to have softer/acoustic entertainment at the lobby area or bar prior to the main show at 9:30. Some staff are friendlier than others. In saying this the friendly staff are awesome.We would recommend this resort. Thank you Brisas for a lovely vacation.
We went to the Brisas last December after friends recommended it as a good spot for kiteboarding. We did not expect much from the hotel as the price was right and we cared more about the wind and the beach. But we were so pleasantly surprised with everything once we got there! We found the Brisas to be very welcoming from the staff to facilities and yes...we loved the food too! It was my first time in Cuba and of course I also heard all the stories about the food! Well I have to say that we always found lots to delicious options from the custom made omelettes in the morning to the great choice of fresh vegetables, salads and meat dish at lunch and dinner There was always grilled fish or chicken, pasta bar for your carbs and even very tasty pizzas prepared right in front of you for those looking for familiar taste.We also really enjoyed our morning cappucinos at the outdoor cafe every morning and switched to Irish coffees at night after dinner!The hotel was very quiet when we were there (just before the Christmas break) so we never had to wait in line for anything or had any problems with finding a chair at the beach or the pool. I guess it would be different when the place fills up but that can be a problem anywhere down south! The pool bar was still under renovation and yes the tools made a bit of noise at time but I'm sure the end result will be worth it! We spent most of our time on the ocean so this was not an issue. Our room was in block 3 close to the beach which was perfect for us as we didn't have to carry our equipment too far. Room was very clean, AC worked perfectly and had plenty of hot water with excellent water pressure.The only negative point I would bring is the fact that the outside tables at the main buffet were only open for one day. We prefer eating all our meals outside away from the AC when we go south. But I guess as the hotel was not full, they tried to restrict the area that needs tending from the staff. We also enjoyed the family of cats that roam just outside the buffet building...specially the kittens!!And yes, the kiting was great too so we plan on coming back in April for 2 weeks this time!
We enjoyed our time at the Brisas Santa Lucia last year so we booked our next trip there again for this March . weve have been to alot of resorts in Cuba for us this is the best value for our money ,thats our opinion . Every traveller has a different expectation so go and you be the judge.
We went from November 24- December 8, 2016. We love returning to Brisas anniversary party weekend. Unfortunately with the passing of Fidel on the 25th, all the planned celebrations were cancelled. We observed 9 days of mourning, no music, no shows, no sale of alcohol. Yes at first we were all very sad and disappointed. But it really gave us a chance to chat more with the entertainers and spend quality time with them. We played chess, checkers and dominos, later in the week we also played silencio bingo. We had a chance to meet other vacationers and kept busy by going off the resort. In times like this you really notice that it's the staff that make this place so special. My best advice is to go with an open mind and get to know the staff. I wish I could speak Spanish, to talk with them more. The beach is nice and shallow lots of great snorkelling close by. Everyone always comments about the food in Cuba, the food here is great! Pool is nice and clean. Rooms are authentic and clean. I love the colours. Grounds are kept in perfect conditions. This is a great hotel for the price.The amazing staff keep bringing us back! Thanks again for a great historical vacation.
