Our Opinion
This hotel is a moderate property with limited facilities, 2 bars, 1 a la carte and 1 buffet restaurant. Be prepared for very basic food, great breakfasts, so so lunches and not so great dinners. However, what this hotel lacks in amenities in makes up for in ambiance and service. It is run by all local farmers and their families and it creates a warm, casual atmosphere. The beach is beside the Breezes so the snorkeling is out of this world. The rooms were spotless and extremely well kept. Go expecting basic, no frills accommodation, but a warm and welcoming environment.

A warm and welcoming hotel located on a splendid coral and sand beach, with exceptional snorkeling and tropical gardens.

Location: Beachfront, 50 min from Varadero Airport, 60 min from Varadero.

Whatever the name is this week. Besides the identity crisis...

... this place is rxactly what our perfect vacation is like. The staff wete generally nice. Some were really great. The layout is in my opinion exceptional... not crowded or over developed.The food is nice... but not great. Same with the rooms.. but nice privacy being apart the way they are. Gorgeous grounds. Adequate pool. Good entertainment for the money. It turned out to be snorkeling heaven for us. 2 hours at a time. Just gorgeous reefs and zillions of fish. I posted a video... Snorkin' JibacoaCheck it out. Pricing was excellent... n close enuf to do stuff in Havana or Varadero. And supper at The Tower was fabulous. I hope it survived... or comes back... and that everyone was okay.... including that beautiful coral reef.

Fantastic Staff and location. Cuba at it's best!

Traveled in March of 2017.All Staff were courteous, friendly and professional.The ladies at the buffet were exceptional as well as the bartenders and folks at the pool bar. Rent a cabin, it's well worth it. Beach and snorkeling were great, pool was also very nice as well.Lots of Canadians with a few Europeans and several Cuban families that were great.The Canadians( my wife and I included) called ourselves the Jibacoa Hillbillies-you know who you are!! We enjoyed ourselves immensely and had a few late nights at the pool bar for very lively evenings! Yonder at the pool will look after your requests. Had a great day trip to Havana with Peter as our guide. They are both first-class guys! Peter is very knowledgeable and Havana is steeped in tradition, romance and incredible sights and hotels Take a hike through the hills, a trip to Havana or visit a local restaurant- Marios, the Tower and El Ciquaqe are all fantastic.If you go, don't fret over a few pesos, tip early and often. The good folks in Cuba will appreciate your generosity!. Hope to return soon!!

What happened?!?!?

I had booked this trip as a girls week away to recharge and reset!!! It had been 11 years since first going to this resort and boy has it changed! The welcome at check-in was not very welcoming to say the least! The lady was extremely rude and unpleasant. We had booked 2 bungalow rooms with 4 beds total. We received 1 row, 1 bungalow and 2 beds. Luckily, we made it work for the week. The food was boring and geared to the locals staying on the resort. The lines were a mess, the locals had no concept of waiting their turn, just line jumping into the line wherever they felt. Luckily it was too hot to stay at the pool all day as it was cluttered with the Cubans and you'd be lucky to find a nice spot to lounge. The entertainment staff at the pool very rarely spoke in English, so unless you can understand Spanish, you have no idea what is going on. We went to go for a night swim in the pool after dinner, but was told it was not possible, to read the sign with the rules. The sign said nothing about the pool closing in the evening. The beach was amazingly quiet so that is where I spent most of my time. We were able to relax for the most part and just went with the flow. And we did meet a couple nice people to chat with, but will really have to think about booking this resort again.
