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. 

Located 30 minutes from the city of Santiago, this resort is a perfect place to relax and soak up the sun and the serenity of the Caribbean sea.
Location: Beachfront, 55 minutes from the airport.

Very good for a 2 star

Nice, clean and you will not starve. I don't eat meat and every night the staff spoke to the cook who created something good for me to eat. They don't have a beach here but you can swim. There is a break wall but you will need swim shoes...lots of small rocks but not rocky. If you want a beach You get on the shuttle and go over to Las Corales. A much larger resort. You can pay $20 and eat and drink and spend the day. They have more restaurants, etc. So worth it.We went on a city tour. It was great. I would have liked more time at the fort. The cigar factory is really just a store as is the rum factory. And the rum was cheaper at the resort...same brands. LOL! It was still a great trip. The city is impoverished...more than Havana or Cienfuegos. Bring bars of soap. It's something most can't afford at a $1/bar in,y make $17/month.We were there 2008

Vacation in Cuba

The people at the hotel are really nice and the hotel is a 31/2 star, but don't let that stop you from checking it out. I have a friend that goes every Jan until end of March and just loves it!Very quiet! Peaceful, lots of fun. There is a Disco bar that's open late and the food isn't bad. It only costs 1 paso for a public bus ride into Santiago de Cuba. Also, the Catamaran ride to the city, was just amazing. The people are really friendly! I like spending little where I sleep and spend time traveling around. To see how the people live. The old car were just great! It cost me $ 30 paso's for a ride back from the city. I took a studebaker truck. It was so, cool!Even, the soldiers at the check stop, stopped us to see what kind it was. I guess they never seen this one driven back to the hotel.

Home away for home!

Another great trip to Costa Morena! Landed about 5:30 at night - quickly through customs and time to get money changed and beer bought for the trip before we loaded a small bus to the resort. Dark by the time we arrived, but check in went smoothly, rum punch to greet us and then escorted to my room. Ground floor in the 500 block! close to everything - staggering distance from the Lobby As always the staff was great, beer cold, sheets clean and the ocean beautiful - meets all my requirements for a great 2 week stay. Good to see old Bucanero staff, and new CM staff - Osmel, Alejandro, Jose, Onevis, Eloy, Tito, Omara, Oliver and of course dear Esther in the dining room. The beach bar was not open, but a quick trip to the lobby bar. Only complaint is that they don't have beer there until 6 at night. Met some interesting tourists, and woulld not hesitate to return.

Back yet again....

What can I say... The staff at this resort goes above and beyond to make your stay spectacular. Everyone from the front desk to the bartenders to the cooks and especially the management, etc... always make my trip very enjoyable! Everyone has a common goal to make sure that you have an amazing and memorable stay. No doubt, if you're looking for a five star, this is not your bag. I am always looking for a comfortable place with outstanding views, great people and good food. Here you get it all at a great price. I will keep coming back here as long as they will have me. I should also mention that over time on my stays at Costa Morena, I've met many Canadians that are repeaters also and we have become good friends here. We keep in touch and often try to plan our trips in order to meet there.. This is a place where everyone knows your name!
