Absolutely awful and wouldn't recommend anyone going to this resort! First they didn't tell us that 3/4 of the resort was still closed. So we paid for adults only and upgraded our bracelets for nothing!!!! There was screaming kids all week, no shows or entertainment, no restaurants except one. So everyday you could order off 1 page of the same menu over and over again. But....they had no tomato, no onions, no mushrooms, all the fruit ( only had pineapple/watermelon) was white and not ripe. And ny mid week they were out of bacon and many other things. We all know the food isn't great in Cuba anyways but WOW!!! With the options and price we went with, kind of hoping for a little more. Toilet seats in the washrooms even would of been nice. After days of complaining they were putting seats on put to late it was our last day of 7 thankfully. Had a plane been around to take me home I would of been gone by my 2 day!!!! The topper of the whole trip was that items went missing from my room not once but twice. I spoke with the reception and security, filed a complaint but it was also pointless. They all cover for each other and tried to tell me nothing like this had happened in the 12 yrs they worked there. Yeah OK, if they only had a clue what their workers were up to and the deals they make with the tourists. Im in the hospitality business and there should never be 4-5 maids coming out of 1 room together. One thing for sure I will never step foot in Cuba again. Second time there and both times were awful!!!!!! Stay away from this place!!!!
This hotel is on the same property as a sister hotel- residents can access the facilities of that hotel too. The hotel rooms were large and nice. The staff tended to finish cleaning the rooms only around 5pm – so if you wanted a mid afternoon nap (who doesn’t want one on a beach holiday?) that becomes a bit challenging. Water in the shower wasn’t always hot and towels were not replaced every day (there was an issue with the cleaning company apparently). Meals and choice of refreshments were satisfactory. We didn’t eat at the sister hotel which was more of a buffet style. When you check-in to the hotel, the staff explain how to disconnect from the internet after each use – if you don’t follow the process, your internet access remains connected and your credit on the internet card gets depleted. The best area to connect to the internet is near the main reception area which is a bit further away from the accommodation, but if you really need that internet access, any distance appears small! The one thing I would share is: bear in mind things will not run like you are used to, your requests may not be met and if they are, it may not be in the way you expected – Cuba is an isolated country and whilst the hotels are good, the standard is very different to other countries, simply because resources are limited. I would recommend this hotel.
We stayed here in April . Going towards the end of the season and this was shown in the food and the lack of customers and service. We found most of the staff were helpful and attentive but the atmosphere and lack of hospitality and range of food and at the forefront of this resort. My husband booked this as a surprise for my birthday and I was expecting the best . Whilst being Aware that 5 star could not be responsible for every everything I must admit I did expect more.The rooms were very clean but basic. The views and beaches were amazing The staff were Brilliant. I think we need to remember this is a communist country with limited food and they try to accommodate everyone . Would we go back to this hotel . No but let it speak for itself. We are not here to put you off simply tell you the truth.
I would not be recommending this resort to anyone.. especially the privileged side. There is nothing privileged about it! I have had better hospitality at a lower star rating hotel than here! - SAVE YOUR $! better off going to Bahamas, Jamaica, Punta Cana! Being on the privileged side you need to be shuttled to and from the main lobby to your room as the walk is 20 minutes. (Plus you have to wait for them to come to pick you up - waiting at least 30 mins!) We ate at a little restaurant beside the pool in the privelage section - again no selection. I asked for oatmeal 4 days in a row and they never had it! - lunch they ran out of ketchup! And didn't replenish til the next day. Snack bar & disco is never open. The main buffet had one row of food! - absolutely zero selection. The servers after asked several times for cutlery & water the response was always one moment please. We got so fed up and left the food on the table and walked out. The main lobby bar - fly floating in the frothed milk and when we asked the bartender to throw it out and make a new one they gave us a dirty look! We had to leave the resort to eat (between taxi rides & eating we've spent over $550 CDN!) (you can highly recommend NONNA TINAS - they have great food!) Privilege beach was poorly maintained only 4 beach chairs - can't even walk on the sand without cutting your feet on broken sea shells! later we found out the resort use to have a chef from Spain here - hence the reviews on the food - however he left and locals now cook it. The resort has fallen apart. Privelage buffet (never open - probably because there was only 5 people on that side) Hotel is very grimy & dated. 1.) one room has a hole in the ceiling. (A lizard came into the room) 2.) I found a frog on my bathroom sink toiletries.Bathroom fans didn't workWater pressure & shower kept turning off & smelt of sewageWe were left with 2 towels (no hand towels) one side of the bed was lower than the otherTV in the bedrooms don't work. Ceiling fan sounded like it was going to come off the ceiling! Bugs Laid eggs in my backpack - i had to leave the backpack in Cuba! absolutely disgustingThis resort is atrocious! Definelty not a 5 star & I would definitely not be coming back here!
Staff is very rude and not at all helpful. Terrible food in all restaurants, similar to a 1 or 2 star hotel. Rooms were not very good either. Cannot be recommended. We stayed for a bit less than a week, and not once were the staff helpful or accommodating.
