Relaxing, friendly, good food, could you ask for anything else. This resort may not be as fancy as some of the others in Santa Lucia but I much preferred this one to the others. It is a bit smaller much more like a family atmosphere than the others. They have a great pool, nice bar by the pool and a great little coffee bar there is also a beach bar. It was very windy during our weeks stay but they had a great little seating area in front of the main building that was blocked from the wind and it was a great place to sit with friends and enjoy watching the Cuba way of life. Easy to get a cab transportation whether it have four wheels or four feet. The food is superb, one of the best of the resorts in Santa Lucia. The rooms are clean, not modern but you don't spend much time in the room anyway. They do have rooms with both 110 and 220 power so most times you don't need a converter for your chargers or appliances. Not all rooms have fridges but if you need one the staff are very accommodating. The sliding doors are very difficult to open and the glass is covered with some sort of plastic and because it has been installed on the outside of the windows it has become weathered and cracked and you cannot see the view out of your door. The very best thing the resort could do is have this film removed. But with all things considered it was a wonderful place to have a vacation and we would return again.
Travelled the last week of December for New Years. This was at least my 10th time at Mayanabo. Lots of improvements all around. 24 hour cafe, wifi (1.50/hr but end your session and turn off wifi), ice cream/coffee carts, churros, coconut water, etc. Although this might have been due to the season.I did not give it a 5 star because I was so very dissappointed in the food. I hate complaining about food in Cuba (because everyone does it), however, at one time Mayanabo USED to have the best food out of the many places ive been in Cuba. I did not starve and I must say the fries were the best ive had at any resort in Cuba. But the buffet was truly a repitition all week long. We had fish only once and it was almost inedible. I suppose I had high expectations where food was concerned ;)The rooms are nothing fancy but always clean with at least one 110V in each room (very well indicated). Everything in it worked (fridge, AC, blowdryer) with lots of hot water. The animation was next to nil as the dancers were on holidays. Raymon and DG from Caracol did their best. Hope to see some better shows next time. I would recommend this hotel for singles and couples of all ages, however, not so much for families.The food won't stop me from going back but I might do other hotels before returning.
Defiantly the best place to go to have a blast, good food, amazing drinks, really fun people and atmosphere. I went with my family and a bunch of friends and it was by far the best trip I have ever been on, we where worried about the food because some of the people I went with are picky eaters but even they had loads to est. Great place for teens aswell. Check it out, you have to go to know!
We arrived at Club Amigo Mayanabo at midnight after a long day getting there from Toronto via Santiago to Cuba, only to land hours later at Camaguey. It was the best trip ever, as Mayanabo is the number one hotel in Playa Santa Lucia, the number 1 hotel in the province of Camaguey, and the number one hotel in the whole of Cuba. I saw some statistics in the lobby, and it is time to make the correction to those stats published outside the restaurant. The second you arrive at Club Amigo you will feel the warm welcome and love from the staff, Juan Carlos, Omar, Osmani, Doliviere, Danny, Martha, and everyone working there. Never mind if the front desk is slow to give change, or slow to resolve issues, compared to other hotels, it is pretty fast. When I spent a week at the hotel, we found that all the staff tried to speak to us in English. Amigo Mayanabo is filled with lots of lovely friends and families who go there to rest and relax. Imagine a place where time stops, the sun peeps out of the rain clouds, and the wind blows the coconut trees like time is standing still. Fidel may be gone, but life goes on. The beach is the best, calm, windy, Sandy with lots of stuff to do. If you need a quiet home away from home with fresh food every day, go to Club Amigo. The service is great. Tips are welcome so take lots of money. If you need CUC pesos, just walk to the bank at the Centro commerciale nearby. You need change, get it from the bank too. The hotel staff depend on tips as their income, and they all deserve lots of tips because they work hard. The best horse and carriage ride is from Panchito, Antoine and Yaney. Ask for them. Also, soak up the sun and get lots of coffee at the pool. The Bonito and papa's fritas are great. There is even coffee sold in the gift store from Alto la Meseta, it is better than the Kicking Horse coffee you get in Canada. The horse and buggy ride with Panchito made me feel like Cinderella, as my husband was there, and we're treated like a king and a queen on our anniversary trip. I loved every second of it, rain and all. Thank you Juan Carlos, Omar, Osmani, staff at Mayanabo. We loved the trip to Rancho King, thank you Vincente, Troye, Ramon and all the caballeros, you guys rock, even the music band rocked when they sang Bailando. GUANTANAMERA was my favourite tune. The kids at the village in Rancho king were very attentive. I loved the trip to see the chickens, local food and there is hope for the poverty will end one day.
Mayanabo is a place where you cannot have high expectations, it's Cuba, but I have never met a group of such amazing people in my entire life.For 18 years I was a Brisas Santa Lucia frequenter, and switched to Gran Club for about a year to try something different. Fell in love with Gran Club. Then a friend wanted to check out the reno's at Caracol - so we went there and ended up switching to Mayanabo for the second week. There was nothing wrong with Caracol, it just lacked that "home" vibe that Mayanabo has. Even when staying at other hotels, the staff at Mayanabo welcomed me like I was one of their guests. The beach is a 4 minute walk from the hotel, and yes, sometimes the bar can run dry. The food can be "meh" or it can be absolutely amazing (if they have the ham with fruit sauce.. eat it.. soooooo good). The pool does not have a swim up bar, which is actually nice that you don't see those people who sit at the swim up all day without a pee break.. lol. The rooms are not fancy, no balcony on top floors, and smaller than other hotels. How much time do you spend in the room anyways? After my second trip staying at Mayanabo (I have spent many beach and pool days there whilst staying at other hotels)...Here's what I LOVE:You won't find entertainment staff like you do at Mayanabo. Mayo, Roly, Humberto - these guys take the time to get to know you. The singers - Leyla, Norly, Eudis - and the band - they're talented beyond belief.The dancers - Cuba, Mariposa, Sumbi, Baby - if only the world knew what they were missing out when you guys are dancing.The show goes on even if there is one person watching. The bartenders (Santiago - thank you for everything), reception and wait staff - even the gardeners - thank you for making this place "home" after 20 years of visits to Santa Lucia.
