My husband and I stayed at the Roc Barlovento for on a week beginning February 26th. This was our 7th trip to Cuba but our first stay at Roc Barlovento. Our direct flight from Calgary got us into the resort at around 4am, There wasn't much in the way of direction given to find your room and none to carry...

We recently returned from our honeymoon. Several of our friends visit the Roc regularly and really enjoy it, so we took their advice. Our vacation was not quite like the other people have written. We usually stay at 3 star, so basically knew what to expect. On our arrival at 10pm, we were shown a room that was totally unacceptable....

My husband and I honeymooned at the Barlovento, it was in the perfect location! You could turn to your right; walk along the water, turn to your left; walk to the shops, out back is the ocean. The service is friendly and the rooms are clean. I think some people are unaware that Cuba does not import a lot of...

This was our second trip to Roc, as we stayed there last year as well. Here is our summary: Rooms: our room had two beds ( which can be pushed together to make a king), decent mattress and pillows. Our balcony overlooked the pool and the main lobby. Great location. The rooms are not fancy but have what we needed...

Our 5th time and counting at the Barlovento was once again very relaxing and we are so well looked after can't say enough positive things about the staff.

We stayed at the Barlovento from Jan 12 to the 22nd. I've been there twice, some improvements were made from 2015 but... please bring back the lobby TV and the sport bar TV.!

We went to this resort recently and had a good time. First the desk staff were very helpful on our arrival. The rooms are what you would expect at a three star in Cuba. They were clean but a little out dated. The resort is small which is what we prefer. Not too much walking. The buffet is typical Cuban...

We are well traveled and used to 4 /5 star accommodations. This was more like a 2 in our estimation. The room was clean and freshly painted, but very small.
