Location: Beachfront, 90 minutes from Ignacio Agramonte International Airport, 90 minutes to Camaguey City.
Was on vacation at the Club Amigo Mayanabo April 7-14.The airport (Cienfuego) is 90 minutes away It was a very quiet week because of the time of year. Probably was only 50% occupied. If you like peace and quiet and you can get a vacation to this place for under $750.00 Canadian take it. The hotel is old and in need of renovation. Our comfort was very reasonable except for the idiot couple across my room who would listen to there television extremely loud at 5 o"clock in the morning the last two days. The beach is simply beautiful. When you arrive at the beach someone will bring you chairs to the desired location of your choice. A small tip is greatly appreciated. Do not expect 5 star service because you will be disappointed. It is at best a 3 star hotel. The food was simply ok for Cuban standards. Me and my spouse had the opportunity to meet Roberto walking on the beach and he ask us to his house for lunch. The cost was 10 pesos per person and well worth it. He served us a fantastic plate of lobster. You can bring your wine. We ended up going 3 times to his place which is walking distance by the beach. Roberto is very friendly and easily recognizable because he has a big red birth mark on his face and he constantly walks on the beach to invite people to his place. If you like lobster you will not be disappointed. Very secure The hotel as bicycles that you can take for a ride to little villages close by. Very enjoyable and safe to do. There is a bar close by the hotel (5 minute walk) that we truly enjoyed at night for the music and party atmosphere. Again very secure.
We vacationed again at Hotel Amigo Mayanabo Jan/Feb 2017 for 6 weeks. We have returned many times because the price is very reasonable, we enjoy the atmosphere of the smaller older resort, the beach is beautiful and not crowded and the water is warm and shallow, the staff are wonderful, and we enjoy visiting with the many return customers as well as meeting new friends. We hope to be able to return again this winter.
Let me start by saying that the resort is ok for the money and that the majority of the staff are friendly and welcoming. The room itself on the second floor was adequate and had a sea view as promised but has no balcony. If you want a hot shower forget it, warm at best. The rooms face east and do not have blackout curtains so if you want to sleep past 6 or 7 am it will be an issue. The garden rooms face west. The WIFI signal is very difficult to connect to however I am using it here now and have been disconnected many times as I try to write. In a week here I have been able to connect 3 times but attempted 50 times at least. I have a house in Cuba so I am quit familiar with the wifi there. ( I am now in Canada to finish this). There is a safe in the room but it costs 15 dollars for deposit and 2 dollars per day. The buffet restaurant is quite good but the "a la carte" restaurant seems to have been an afterthought of the designers. It is an open area with no doors and appears to have been the al fresco portion of the buffet restaurant originally. I was expecting a more quiet, romantic and relaxed atmosphere for that type of restaurant. I did make a reservation there and when I arrived with my wife we were told that we had cancelled the reservation. We certainly had not done so. I asked to speak to a manager and was told that there was none on duty. I persisted and the hostess who I was talking to said she would get one and she left and returned with a bus-person. I guess she thought I was daft. In the end we were told that they had cancelled our reservation because it was only for 2 people and no other reservations had been made. My wife had spent over an hour getting prepared and dressed. Maybe they could have thought about advising us of their decision earlier in the day. During the week we were there we did not see one person eating there. No manager contacted us the next day and no type of compensation was offered. For the above mentioned I will never return to this hotel nor recommend it to anyone. Just down the street the hotel Brisas appears to be a nice property and the upper rooms do have balconies. That is where I will go on my next visit to Santa Lucia. Hope this is helpful.
Went first week of June 2017, asked for block 2 and was given a room at the very end of the block. The new P R man Juan helped me approach the front desk to have my room changed. It was done by the desk clerk Norly and I was given a room I wanted.The season was slow, yet the staff was accommodating. Having been there before, I met locals that are very cordial and inviting. Regretfully you cannot bring people to your room or to the bar for a drink. The locals are not allowed on the premises and stopped before the security gate in the front of the hotel. Room was clean, The only sad part was the entertainment, 7 nights and only 2 real tropicana shows, 5 nights of bingo and kids games from 9 at night til 11pm (kids are still up)Over all I give this place 3 stars, food was as usual, repetitious repasts. Julio stood guard over his bicycles which is free for the 1st hour. Bad part is the ride from the airport to the resort is about an hour and half. By taxi $100 so best to have a package deal. Mine was with Sunwing. I will return
i use to go to this resort for, many years ,and i liked,because small and cozy ,personal is very friendly ,and service god, specially like to appreciate Orlando who work at beach bar also receptions
