- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
OverviewThis resort is comprised of two hotels, Carisol and Los Corales which are perched on the edge of Cazonel, one of the most beautiful beaches in the region.
Location: Beachfront, 60 minutes from the airport.
We stayed in Los Corales for two weeks, we had a great time! Out of all the places I have visited in Cuba, Santiago is the best place in terms of weather. It only rained for one hour during our whole entire trip. It was my third time in Santiago and the weather has always been this amazing. We stayed in the bungalow. Our maid Judy did an amazing job keeping our rooms clean. A special thanks to Marleidis for all her help, professionalism and amazing service. The food was good. There was also great live entertainment and shows every night. I would definitely go back again! Recommended.
The front desk was helpful to get us our room. Our room was nice and clean (washroom, bedsheets and towels) thanks to our housekeeper lady. The restaurant was different than last year, it was closed in with windows, doors and airconditions and lot of variety of foods and desserts and we enjoyed unlimited visit to the three alacart restaurant, the meal and service was excellent. there are 5 bars at the hotels, the bar tenders are all friendly and fast service with a smile. We spend 15 days in a hot sunny weather. We wants to thanks all the Coralos team especially the director and the commercial managers and the public relations and front desk staff. WE are looking forward to go back next year to our second home and spend more time. We have been in this hotels more than 20 times.
January 2017 visit to Carisol and Los CoralesOverall, the stay was wonderful. Great weather, clean place, cosy beach. A bit windy at times. The staff was helpful, went well beyond their duties to accomodate the guests. The food was plenty and the bar was well stocked. We came on a family room. The place is safe for kids. A bit far away from the city, about 60 kms, we took a tour to the city and we enjoyed it, although the day was very hot. It is a great get away for the winter. I spoke to a retired lady, she has been there for months. She hope to keep doing it every year! And we hope to return, too!
Having stayed at a 3 star in Varadero a number of years ago, we had reasonable expectations for this one. We stayed on the Corales side in a standard room on the main level.Good things: Friendly staff, bread was delicious!, a la carte dining was good with unlimited reservations (have to reserve daily in the lobby at 10:00), snorkeling was pretty good off the beach, pool was fun, bikes are available at no charge, but can be hard to get, hammocks on the beach were great, weather was perfect! The bath towels and beach towels were nice and big. Internet is available on two computers in the lobby for 1 CUC per 30 minutes. Other notes: mattresses are very hard, pillows (one per bed) are not very good either, sheets are very worn, buffet is a little sketchy - hot food is not kept hot, cabbage was the only vegetable to be seen, we had a zip tie instead of a doorknob (we thought it was funny! At least the deadbolt worked!); although we had excellent water pressure and lots of hot water, we heard from others that they did not, A/C unit worked well but was noisy; there is a ping pong table on each side of the resort, but the paddles and ball tend to go missing. Bring your own if you have them! The buffet on the Carisol side is much quieter, so if the Corales side is too busy, head on over. The path between the resorts is well lit, except for a section on the Carisol side. Go slow and watch for the steps or take a flashlight. Beach towels are available at the Ranchon (snack bar) from 10-4 daily. Make sure you don't lose them or you will have to pay 25 CUC. Swimming is not great in front of the resort due to sea grass and shallow water, but there are a couple small cleared areas. If you walk down the beach around the corner there is a beautiful public beach. There will be people approaching you to sell you art or arrange horseback riding or lobster dinner in a private home. Just say no gracias if you are not interested. They can be somewhat persistent but we didn't meet anyone who was aggressive in any way. A couple we met did a lobster dinner in a private home and really enjoyed themselves.We went with Sunwing and did the Santiago Special tour. It was enjoyable - stopped at San Juan Hill, drove through the city, toured the cemetery and saw Castro's grave, had an hour to shop in the central square, took a boat to Granma Island for a seafood lunch and then toured Del Morro fortress. The tour guide was informative and gave a lot of information while we drive on the bus. We left the hotel at 8:30 and returned in time for dinner.We also took a taxi into Santiago with another couple for an evening. The novelty of the '56 Ford didn't last long with the bumpy roads and no suspension! Our driver, El Chino, was great though, and we had a good time.Overall, we had a great time. Keep your expectations reasonable and remember, you're going on vacation, so relax and smile!
Trying to reach a relative to notify them of an emergency family situation at this hotel. No one answers the phone. When they do they can't speak any English not even enough to understand that we NEED English. Had to get someone from our work who knows locals near that beach and have them out out some kind of all call through the community looking for her!!! What the hell is that all about!? First off : ANSWER THE PHONE! Second off: Don't hang up when someone says English please in Spanish and says Urgencia!! Try to help people better than that!! One of your guests lost a loved one and it shouldn't be so difficult to contact someone paying to stay here!
