This is a small more intimate Resort on the beach however in town walking distance to everything. I read all the reviews before picking this hotel. I was looking for a resort where Cubans can actually mingle with the vacationers and are not looked down on. If you have never been to Cuba you need to know the Cubans are doing the best they can with all resources at their disposal from food to activities anybody that finds they want to complain do so in Washington.PROSCubans can come on the resort and mingle at timesResort being continually updated with the again limited resources at their disposal.resort right in the middle of town so everything is within easy access.The bar is open 24Ã©7 and you can get coffee and tea there at any hour.CONSWay to much food please remember if u want North American style food please stayhome so the rest of us who realize we are in a Spanish environment can better enjoy ourselves.The people are way to friendly and accommodating both on the off the resort for example I found myself in need of something medicinal for my stomach and went to a pharmacy where they only serve Cubans the woman there served me as a curtesy and I gave her a nominal fee.Again I will re-iterate if you want everything like at home stay home. They have the usual variety of insects there and smart tourists will bring sprays to control said insects and also the spray on their feet for sand flees it is after all the Caribbean wow great revelation I am way south of OZ and must adjust accordingly or suffer the consequences.Cuba is one of the safest islands I have ever been on and I was Military and traveled a lot.This resort has edible food and they do have a grill at every meal which means most often pancakes omelettes and plenty and I mean plenty of pasta and fish heaven forbid we cannot abide all this food and in a country that has an embargo against them unlike other locations in the Caribbean where everything is plentiful. If these other areas had to make do with what Cuba has to make do with the resorts would collapse.In closing if you are looking for a small intimate and not perfect resort with good food or as good as they can humanly supply then this is the resort. If you are looking for seclusion and no better food sometimes worse and no mingling there are a number of more modern resorts in the area. Personally I travel to see the people and get a feel for the country. If you are the type that just travels to stay in the resort then go elsewhere. I have friends who do this a brag they have been to the same resort in the same area 13 and more times however when questioned they have not seen the country. There is no kids club.
Have been going to this resort about 12 times in the last 3 years. I know most of the employees and management by first names. I have seen management come and go.Sadly, the loss of Luciano has changed the mood of the hotel, noticeably. The people at this hotel I consider "my extended family".About one month ago I took my friend from the States to the resort as a gift. I was never so embarrassed in my whole life...The food was TERRIBLE. Cockroaches coming out of the sink, black mold in the rooms, changed again. (Went there two months ago and same thing re the mold)No fridge. No Telephone in any of the rooms. Beach front, premium rooms are directly over the bar and entertainment, so don't plan to retire early. Music is loud.The entertainment is ok but NO ONE CAN REPLACE LUCIANO. The replacement girl is a joke. She'd rather entertaine 3 or 4 kids inside while not interacting with any of the guests outside, Hardly and stools at the bar and also NO SMOKING sign there two.My husband came to spend one night, sharing the kingsize bed with me, while my girlfriend stayed on the 3/4 bed, while we were in the PREMIUM ROOM and they charged me an additional 75 pesos for him to sleep there. He had NO FOOD. I WASREALLY ANGRY. He was leaving the next day for Toronto while my friend and I were staying on for 4 more days.Location is wonderful and great beach and it was my favourite hotel in Cuba, but I have to say, we will NOT be returning. Everyone there calls me "MAMA".
This an update I have received from a friend who works at Los Delpines over the past week post Irma. The resort took many precautions to reduce damage, and removed the canvas covering walkways, palapas stored up against the lee side of the restaurant building. The biggest casualty was the loss off the large tree shading the lobby bar patio. The lobby bar pictures she sent showed it filled with tables, speakers, canvas but the building appears otherwise intact. Staff are working to remove sand from buildings and walkways. Many trees around the resort are damaged and stripped of leaves and fronds. The road way between the pool and lobby bar been totally covered in sand, and concrete hydro poles were tilted precariously. We hope to visit again in November.
We stayed 2 weeks July 7-21st. This was our 7th time staying at this resort in as many years. We are starting to notice the hotel is working on its image the best it can. upgrades to the buffet area and bar area were nice to see. We have had many different rooms during our visit and as a rule they have been clean and maintained as much as can be expected. Our last room was an ocean view over the lobby bar. Yes the toilet plugged up 3 times during our stay, but we simply flagged down the maintenance guy, he gave it a plunge and away we went. (Can happen anywhere). The only down fall is if you like to retire early the entertainment is right below you at night. The buffet has come along way over the years. Gee ( buffet manager) has and is working hard to provide a good variety of food. While my wife and I are not really picky eaters my wife is a celiac and she never had any issues finding something at every sitting that worked for her. Since we were down for 2 weeks we did eat at a couple of local restaurant's and because of the hotels location they can be found very close by. We did venture out to the casa de la musica one evening with a local friend and the dancing and bands until 4am was a real experience! (Thx Yailin!) Pedro and his animation crew keep things entertaining and up beat.Staff- here are our thoughts. They are all very interesting and unique people. From day one we made a point of getting to know everyone and over the years have tried to learn more Spanish every year.(Why should one expect them to speak fluent English?) Everyone working there from the receptionist, bar tenders, maids and security guards, are all willing to help you out when needed and share a laugh.To sum it up the beach is magnificent, the hotel is small (102 rooms I believe), close to everything down town, and an amazing staff. If you want a very nice relaxing vacation give the Delfines a try, and enjoy your vacation. FYI they came thru IRMA with very minimal damage. Glad to hear!
