Our Opinion
Please note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba.

Overview
This vast complex is set on the white sands of Santa Lucia beach. Completely rebuilt in 2000 with all-new facilities, the Club is the perfect choice for travelers who prefer a more expansive setting. Relax with a soothing cup of orange pekoe at the early evening tea service, or browse through the small shopping centre, a five-minute stroll away. Other unique features include the a la carte seafood restaurant (available at extra charge) perched above the tranquil waters on a pier jutting out from the hotel property.
 
Location: Beachfront, 90 minutes from Ignacio Agramonte International Airport, 90 minutes to Camaguey, 60 minutes to Nuevitas.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Tammy S :
Gem of a resort

I have been to the Hotel Roc the ex Gran Club twice now and love this resort and the people who work there. They make you feel like family. This resort should be rated 4 star or better. A lot of renovations have been done with a new beach bar, lobby bar and refreshing the rooms and restaurant, I can't wait to see them when I return in November.

Honest Canadian Review

Hola! I will be returning to Roc Santa Lucia September 26th for my 7th time in 3 years. Formerly known as Gran Club! Last year I got the Junior Suite for the first time and I was very pleased at how much room there was for me and my 2 other friends. If there are just 2 of you the standard room would be just fine. Over the years the food has gotten MUCH better, there have been so many upgrades which do take time and money and they are really trying to make this hidden gem of a resort more beautiful. IF, you have have extremely high standards go elsewhere, it is not a 5* resort, likely you would always find something to complain about anywhere you go. The front desk staff, the bellboys, the gardeners, the chef, the entertainment staff are all wonderful people, the entertainment staff would go above and beyond (Danny, Pluto, Julio, BomBom, Shandy, Roly, Laritza, Tiko), most are no longer there unfortunately. The resort is an hour away from the airport but believe me the shuttle bus to and from can be a lot of fun!!! Cuba is not a rich island, but you will never meet a nicer community of people. I recommend the disco on and off of the resort once the nightly show is over, I HIGHLY recommend taking horse and buggy to Coco Beach, great food and ice cold beverages. See you again soon, Roc Santa Luica, September 26th besos

Honest review

My wife and I stayed in this hotel from Aug 30th to Sept 4th, this hotel is about 1 hour away from the closest airport in Camaguey, the road is in bad condition, arrived at hotel at 1:30 pm , the check in time is at 2:00 pm but I was told that the first day the lunch is not included even when this hotel is all inclusive meal plan only. After speaking with the public relation person we were finally allow to eat lunch which brought to us a very bad taste, the buffet restaurant A/C is broken and they're cooling the area with a 2 portable units that barely cools the restaurant, also the restaurant was full of flies that are all over the food and dinning tables, you have not option to fight with them in order to bring the food to your mouth, seen everybody dealing with this disgusting situation , even the hotel director and others managers all of them were eating next to us most of the time but seems like they see this as a common practice, I noticed that the employees are ignoring all the guest, they're there no to offer you any service as water, coffee, juice or soda , instead people almost begging to them to be served, they're very focused on save food (raw and cooked) from the buffet to bring to their houses, unfortunately we were a witness of this Behavior every day. Talking with another guests about this situation they all agreed that this place is going downhill since the new owner took over this place, the occupation while we were there was less that 15% , but in the weekend locals (Cubans) are invading this hotel destroying everything on their path, behaving crazy and acting with 100% impunity. Now for the food as I mentioned above was almost impossible to eat without sweat or fight with flies, the food was the same everyday, The food in the buffet is not labeled properly and in many cases there's not label at all which make this very difficult for the foreign guest, the food is just Cuban food plus a pizza and pasta station.The beach was another disappoint, is not what you're expecting when you're visiting a Caribbean island.The drink quality is poor at best and the water served has a weird color and taste ,not clear which I think is just tap water refilled in the original plastic water gallon, in the room you have a mini fridge but that's empty for your entire stay, when asked about this I was told that we have to buy bottle of water at the hotel store or drink the one is served in the hotel bars.The bell boy is always behind the front desk seems like he's there not to help guests with their luggage, there's no a warm welcome from any of the recepción area employees , mostly of the employees are not willing to interact with you or provide any helpful information. The safety box in your room is not included in your room reservation, it's needs to be pay at the reception, the first room the gave us was completely torn ( standard room)so they offer us another room for a fee ( junior suite) which was much better but cost us 20 cuc extra per night.I would like to mention the few good employees that we had the pleasure to met and share part of our bad experience ( Niurka, Mabel from bar and the buffet restaurant) also Rafael from the rent a car and Belkis from the entertainment team .I would never recommend this place to anybody, please stay away from this cage.

  • Antonio S :
Inattentive

I went to roc Santa Lucía for just a day with our Cuban family, the lady that check me in was super nice so I figure this was a nice and friendly hotel based on my first impression,everything started going downhill when we noticed that most of the employees in the hotel were super cold, there was not speed of service or sense of emergency at all and most time they pretended they didn't hear you asking for things, one of the answers I got in the bars close to the beach was serve yourself, speaking with other guests I realized that I was not the only person that had the perception of the inattentive service, the rooms were just okay the food at the buffet was okay and the pool was nice, what made me super upset was the way I was approached by the room attendant Leidy, she accused me of taking some towels in front of many guests at the lobby bar, I traveled with a disable person that packed the towels without we realizing, that was not the problem I could had pay or return the towels right away, the problem was the way Leidy approved us, she pretty much was down for a fight, I hope you have cameras so you can see the way your guests got treated, I could not believe I was going trough and experience like that, overall my perception was that they don't like locals visiting the hotel, I hope someone can tell Laidy that doesn't matter what it is she needs should keep conversations professional and give the chance to the guest to explain instead of accusing without knowing the real reasons,Thanks

Our home away from home

We just returned from ROC Santa Lucia from our fifth visit. Over the years it has become our home away from home. Staff and management are working really hard to improve wherever they can. Rooms are being renovated, food is better then ever, sun is shining and the beach is a foot step away. It is a fairly small resort but lets be honest, do you really need 5 pools 7 bars and thousands of hotel rooms? ROC Santa Lucia has all you ever need and then some.But, what makes this place so special, its the staff. From front desk to entertainers, bartenders and servers, they all want to take care of you. Yurina, Yanelis, Reynaldo and Mirtha, all of you ROCk.
