Room near the beach area was damp, toilet and bathroom sink plugged. Had to ask for towels, face cloths, no Kleenex available anywhere on property. Food at the buffet ok but dishes should be labelled. Lots of fish and pork. Very little beef. Plenty of places to drink. Ocean and the beach areas were the highlight of the trip. Power...

Our 8th time and of course loved it They have done quite a few renovations. The rooms are being renovated. The bathrooms at the lobby, beach and pool have been renovated. Now if the guests were a little more careful. paper towels in bathrooms will block them (fun for the next guest.) Cigarette butts and napkins in men's urinals, REALLY???...

Overall, I would say our vacation at the Iberostar Playa Alameda was good. I was attracted to this resort because of the good ratings and reasonable cost. As always, Cuba's sand and beach is the best you will find anywhere in the world, so of course we enjoyed this part of the holiday. The pool was lovely, and getting a...

The 3 restaurants a la carte are fine too.Animation good, specially Charly on the beach. Entertainment at night is o.k. but the first show is better then the one at the...

We stayed at the Iberostar Playa Alameda from February 8 - 15. We were not disappointed! My husband and I traveled to Cuba 23 years ago and were happy to see many changes for the better. This Resort - It is a smaller hotel and everything is in close proximity. Short and easy walk to the beach, restaurants etc. The...

When we arrived we were greeted with a rum punch at front desk. We were given our room keys and that's it. No one escorted us to our room to show us where it was and no one helped with our luggage-and we stayed on the 3rd floor and I was travelling with my elderly Father. I have never experienced...

The room is very dated and appears slated for renovations as there were numbered stickers on pictures, furniture. The bathroom door was missing. Both my husband and I did not have any privacy when it was needed. The sliding balcony door was near impossible to open. There was no screen so every time you were able to open the sliding...

We stayed at the Iberostar Playa Alameda Feb 6-13th . This was our first time to Cuba and decided to stay here despite some of the negative reviews. We have stayed at Iberostar in the Mayan Riviera Mexico and decided we would try it in Cuba. The resort is small and close to everything, we loved it. Our room was...
