We visited Club Amigo Mayanabo from March 9th to the 17th, flying with Sunwing from Montreal. I want to breakdown my review into categories, as I think it's important to be as specific as possible in a review to help others!Hotel/Grounds - The hotel is an older hotel. If this is something that bothers you, then it may not be the place for you. That being said, overall, it is well kept. The main building is small and the furniture is old. It's very clean, though. The bathrooms in the main building (which are also the pool bathrooms) are the cleanest bathrooms I have ever experienced at a resort. They were spotless...all the time. The main building also has some TV's, lots of places to sit, a bar, a pool table on an upper level, and the front desk.The grounds are very well kept. It has lovely landscaping, and the gardeners do a great job. The palms around the pool are beautiful.The buildings or "blocks" where the rooms are located are old. There is serious wear on the buildings, and it's noticeable. One nice thing about the resort is that there is wireless internet in the lobby, pool bar area, and snack bar. You can buy 1hr cards for $1.50. It doesn't work consistently, but it was an amazing perk when it did!Rooms - So, it seems that blocks two and three are the "updated" blocks. I'm not sure what updated means, beyond a key card, a flat screen, and maybe a fridge. The rooms, in general, are dated, small and in rather rough shape. The furniture is worn and tired, and the beds aren't overly comfortable. The bathroom sink and toilet were updated, but the shower (and the shower head) were not in good condition at all. That being said, the house keepers did an amazing job keeping the room clean and it didn't bother us too much. How much time do you spend in your room, anyway?*Please take note that if you are in block three (where we were) there is a night club literally next door. It pumps music until 2:00am every night. We were on the ocean side, but if you are on the garden side, I couldn't imagine how loud it would be. Bring ear plugs, or maybe ask to be moved to the 200 block. I'm sure you could hear it everywhere, though.There is a small gift shop on resort, and it's very good! Lot's of thing's to choose from. If you don't find a souvenir you like, just walk up the beach past the Caracol and you'll find the commercial center with lots to choose from.Food - I have to give this resort credit. The food is pretty good. The buffet was fairly repetitive, but the food was good. There are always eggs in the morning, pasta (which is just okay), and lots of salad options. The Cuban rice is delicious, the plaintains and potatoes are yummy, soup was delicious, and there were lots of condiments to spice thing's up. I would not recommend the a la cartes. They were not enjoyable, and the food wasn't as good as the buffet.This resort has some interesting perks. They actually have a churro stand at the pool and they are absolutely delicious!! They also had ice cream delivered around the pool every afternoon. There is a snack and cappuccino bar, and the cappuccino's are fantastic. We had the snacks just once, and they were fine. Bars - There are two main bars on the resort. The one by the pool, and one by the beach. The one by the beach (run by a guy named Orlando) is by far the better bar. He made the best pina colada's we've ever had on vacation. The don't have a lot of super fancy drinks, but the ones they make well, they make very well. The bartenders at the pool bar were just okay...I didn't find them overly friendly or good at making drinks.Pool Area - This resort has the biggest pool out of all of the resorts. The pool guy's do an amazing job keeping it, and the pool deck area, clean. The lining of the pool has some issues...you can feel it when you're swimming...but the pool really is awesome. There are tons of chairs in the sun, and some in the shade. There are also some hammock's around the pool in the shade. The chairs are in excellent shape, and it's all very clean!Beach Area - There are tons of palapa's to find shade, and tons of chairs. The beach is lovely (despite the sea weed which they remove everyday). There were some water activities, but we did not partake. The board walk is in good shape, and the bar is only a minute's walk from the beach.Staff - The staff at the resort really are lovely. The front desk people are incredibly friendly and helpful...they spoke excellent English. The bartenders (as mentioned) were okay, but Orlando at the beach bar was fantastic. The housekeepers were amazing. The staff in the dining room where lovely. They would always remember us and have our drinks ready before we even sat down. The animation team (specifically Roly) was good. We always did the afternoon darts and bingo. I found some of the animation team members a bit obnoxious and offensive...but Roly really was the stand out. Such a nice guy. The evening shows were good (I only saw two) and the dancers were fantastic. Last Notes:*They have some bikes at the front of the resort you can borrow. We went for a bike ride and it was nice! The area is totally flat. *This resort had the easiest money exchange ever. No line up at a bank...just directly at the front desk.*The towels you put a $15 deposit in for are in great shape. Well worth the deposit.*You have to pay a $15 deposit and $2 a day for the in room safe. It was worth it for us.In terms of value for money, this resort is well worth it. We got an amazing deal, and if we got the same deal, we would certainly return! We met some very nice people and had a lovely vacation!
Staff are lovely. Entertainment staff do there best. Clean rooms. Excellent location right on the beach and close to everything. Excellent vacation all the time. The food was fantastic as well as the entertainment.
have recently come from the resort and it is the worst i have ever been to.The staff there, i dont wanna mention names, but they ask for tips literally, which is very unprofessional. One of them even tried to kiss my sister on her lips one night as if she were eassy to hook nup with, ´´mess up with your own cuban girls´´ she said. The food was not that good but we could eat it. The drinks were too poor and they lacked variety. Some times we had only one type of rum and beer, one day they only spray and orange softdrink. Some of the staff were so rude because they saw we did not tip anybody except our maid who was wonderful and did a very hard work to please us. I will definetally put this place out of my holiday destinations for the future.
