    Rooms that say, The Level, are they all ground floor rooms? Also how crowded is it during the first week of May.

    I'm planning to travel to Cuba in July with my husband and sons 18 and 21. We are thinking of an adult resort rather than a family one - as we don't want to be surrounded by young children - but I wondered what the average age of this hotel is with it being adult only. Any advice please? Thank you
