          Hi, we've been to Cuba few years back and this year we decided to go again. We used to tip 1 CUC each meal or in the room for the maids every day. At dinner time we used to give 2 CUC (at buffet). I read some of the reviews some tourists say that if you don't tip 5 CUC and up the staff give you hard time. It's hard for me to believe this. Did anyone experienced such issue? Thanks.

          Hi, I'm looking into booking for a 10 day stay here but I'm worried about all the rocks! I went to Memories Paraiso and the beach was fantastic, and no rocks in sight, but the hotel was horrible! Are the rocks really high, and are there any areas without rocks?
