My wife and I had 29 people attend our wedding at Brisas!! They did an "AMAZING" job. Everything was MORE than anyone could ask for or want. It was the BEST day of our lives and we were over the moon!
We had such a wonderful time when we went to Brisas in the spring that we decided that we would take the entire family back there. It has always been a dream of my husband's to take our children and grandchildren away for a family holiday. When they were growing up we were too busy with hockey tournaments and dance competitions to ever get the opportunity.It was the first trip to the Caribbean for all except our daughter, who had gone to a family wedding with us about four years ago. They were all excited by the prospect and had high hopes which were met and then more so. We had to go in August due to school restrictions on our daughter-in-law which raised concerns for the weather but we had perfect weather. It rained once during the night and other than that we had sunshine the entire trip.Bermania, one of the management staff at the resort, went out of her way to ensure that our family had an amazing trip. We cannot thank her enough for everything she did for us. My son and his wife were celebrating their sixth wedding anniversary and with Bermania's assistance I had arranged for a lovely romantic dinner for the two of them. They had an amazing meal with a view of the ocean and a romantic sunset.As always the entertainment staff went out of their way to ensure that all ages had a wonderful trip. Our four year old granddaughter and eight year old grandson were made to feel special and included in all of the activities. My grandson is quite shy but by the end of the week the head of the children's program had him onstage singing and dancing with the rest of the kids. Rolly, director of the entertainment staff, was his usual hilarious and fun filled self. He quickly recognized that my middle son is a natural entertainer and included him in many of the evening shows, much to my son's and the audience's delight. I have not laughed that much in a long time.Our rooms were perfect and the staff ensured that we were set up to make it as comfortable as we could ever hope for. Unfortunately our granddaughter was ill for a couple of days but Anna, their maid, went out of her way to help her parents keep her comfortable and as happy as could be expected under the circumstances.We were in building number two which has had new air conditioners installed and were very comfortable for the little time you ever spend in your rooms.We took the family on two excursions. The first being snorkeling. Yuan and Jordi made the trip amazing. If you go make sure you do the one that involves lunch and the visit to the starfish area. The family who runs the restaurant are wonderful friendly people and the beach there is perfect.For the second excursion my husband took all but three of us on a deep sea fishing trip. From everything I heard a great time was had by all. It was the season for catching barracuda and between the five of them they caught eight fish. The one my grandson caught was almost as long as he is tall. He could not stop talking about how much fun he had and how he wants to live in Cuba.The food was what you would expect in Cuba - you do not go to Cuba for the culinary experience. However, there was an excellent salad bar, pasta and pizza bar, plenty of desserts to choose from as well as their excellent icecream. For breakfast you could get a freshly made omelette or eggs and bacon just the way you like them cooked. I was always able to get freshly grilled fish for lunch and supper and my husband was quite happy with the freshly grilled protein that was offered each night. The beef was done perfectly and that seldom happens in the Carribean. Everyone was able to find something to satisfy their tastebuds and appetite. If you did not feel like going to the buffet there was a snack bar where you could get freshly cooked hamburgers and french fries. My husband and I enjoyed the coffee bar after each meal where they made us perfect Spanish coffees.I cannot say enough about the staff - their friendliness and their helpfulness. Everyone from the servers to the gardeners were amazing and went out of their way to make sure our trip was all we had dreamed it would be.if you are looking for a place for the perfect family getaway I cannot offer you a better location.
I've have been to this resort over 10 times and have to say, it is one of my favorite places. The staff is very friendly, the night life is mins away. The food is not something i would rave about, but i always can find something to eat. i suggest taking a 5 mins walk up the street. Night time is loads of fun and daily, a great walk to something new. many restaurants you'll find a fabulous meal to. shows are great, rooms are very dated, but you'll find a reason to fall in love..
Its interesting to see what people write. I went for 5 days and for the price I paid I knew where I was going. If I wanted a 5 star resort I would have picked another Cuban destination but I loved it here. There are 4 hotels in the area and this hotel is just the perfect size. The staff is friendly and helpful and one lady even went out of her way to get me a hot tea and lemon as I had a cold. I walked from one end of the beach to the other and this hotel has the best beach of the other hotels.As well, there are always great spots to grab a chair for the day. We would leave our stuff there for hours with no worry while we did the catamaran and other water activities. There is a bit of seaweed but a lot less than the other areas around. They pass in the morning and pick it up. Note that other areas have a lot in the water but not here. I ate very well the whole time and loved the fruits. I had an issue with the air conditioning and someone came within minutes to fix the breaker and then no more issues.A few times the power went out for about a minute but this has happened in other places as well.Also even if the package is all inclusive , Its a good thing to tip at the bar or at the restaurants especially the A la Carte ones. Even if you leave a dollar, it will be appreciated. At the main dining room , we sat in the same section the whole time so we tipped the same servers.There is also a small fridge in the room. I dont know if all the rooms are the same but the bed in the room was very comfortable. If you have ocean view, you can leave your curtains open and awaken to a gorgeous sunrise.The safe is in the room and it is not included so you pay at the front.They have various places where you can fill up your water bottle. You can buy a bottle at the little store at the hotel.There is a pharmacy at the hotel as well and the gym was good. One thing that I regret not doing and I will do when i go back is take the bike and go to the village. There are bikes at the hotel and I suggest to grab one and go for a ride around. You have to see the front desk for this. ALso depending on when you go, DONT forget mosquito repellent.And lastly , a lot of ppl go the the dollar store before the trip and leave pens/pencils/notebooks/nail posh/soaps/coloring books/ hair bands/razors and shaving creams ect and these are extremely appreciated by all.
Brisas is a typical 1980's all-in place that is not worth your time or money. The pool looks nice but due to the constant loud music and animation you cannot really relax there. The beach is beautiful but do not expect great snorkeling as the only thing you will see is sea grass.The food is extremely low quality. The rooms should have been refurbished at least 10 years ago and the staff is bored and unwilling to help.
