We spent two weeks at this resort between October 28 and November 10, 2017. This was our 12th visit to this hotel. Damage from Hurricane Irma was visible everywhere. The lobby had been filled with sand and all the windows broken but is back to normal. Sand has been washed inland as far as the lobby, the parking lot and the first row of bungalows. Grassy areas behind the beach are now covered with sand. One or two big royal palms in front of the restaurant were down and a half dozen palms around the pool are also gone. Lots of palmettos, sagos and other plants were damaged but are recovering nicely. A few beach grape trees along the beach were lost. All in all, the hotel is back to normal.We had a nice bungalow close to the restaurant. The food was much better than last time; three or four kinds of rice, two soups and lots of meat dishes. The salad bar and dessert area was about the same but really well presented. We had guacamole several nights! We heard that there was a new chef; it definitely appeared to be true.This hotel is very quiet and casual with a great beach. The staff is super friendly as usual. We will be back soon.
Picking this resort over hundreds of others in Cuba seemed to be a daunting task at first, but after looking through some traveler’s photos and reviews it became clear that this was an excellent resort where I could spend the days relaxing by the beach digging my feet into the sand while the sun splashes across the horizon.
Another fantastic trip to VJC. After the hurricane hit, within 2 weeks the hotel was up and running. The good part is that the beach now goes all the way up to the pool which is beautiful but down by the ocean it is a bit rocky. Food has improved a lot over the years and the restaurants just outside of the resort are great and at a cheap price. Staff is as wonderful as ever and are eager to help in any way. We took a trip to the Cuban National Zoo just east of Havana and highly recommend it. 5 cucs for the day including a fantastic bus ride that shows animals in a natural environment. Overall, a great trip.
We just returned from this resort yesterday for the first time there. I was a little worried about going because of some of the bad reviews. Well I can tell you there is nothing to worry about. They food was very tasty, and never ran out of food like some of the reviews I read. I guess if you go near the end of the time to eat you get whats left, which is understandable in my opinion. Rooms were clean but dated. Bungalows were nice and also the grounds. The pool was amazing, such beautiful scenery. Entertainment was ok but nothing special. They had games and activities at the pool for anyone who wanted to join in. Staff were very friendly. The noseeums loved me so bring insect repellent. My husband only got a couple of bites. There are plenty of friendly cats so please bring them a bit of your leftovers when you leave the restaurant as they will be waiting for you. Overall the resort was great and would definitely go back.
The rooms were clean and cool. The staff were friendly and efficient. We were there 3 weeks after the hurricane, and a lot of work has been done. They lost most of the shrubs, and the grass areas are now part of the beach. The 2 issues I had with this resort are: the food and the bugs. The food was terrible. Fruit was almost non existent and there was no salad or tomatoes or anything like that. Same food every night.The flies were on all the food, and the no see ums were terrible. We all got eaten alive.We will not return
