Although this is an amazing hotel and beach there a few trips and adventures that you can either book with your travel company, organise yourselves or with a bit of homework organise whilst at the hotel.

Stayed here for the first time this may for 14 nights, and had the most fantastic relaxing time, the room may of been a little dated bathroom wise, but the view from the balcony more than made up for that. The maids were very polite and everyday the room was left spotless with a little towel animal on the covers....

We stayed for 3 weeks from 1st may, this being our eighth stay at this hotel . We were disappointed this time and totally agree with review of David N. I confronted Lorraine on my last day and told her not to try and make this hotel like Benidorm as this was Cuba not Spain. Her reply was that it...

First time there. Stayed 11 days. Although room equipment is old (noisy and not so cool air conditioning, bathroom needing renovations) the overall site is great. Beautiful beach with chair for every one and lot of tree to be in the shade, very very good food at the buffet (I personally think that the buffet is better than all the...
