We will be back for our 12th time in a few weeks after having spent a week here last November. Not much to say different than many others have said before. The beach is the best and no one is bugging you to buy something if you want to buy some local craft. As well, you can have a sit...

Never ever. Mattress is old and you feel all springs. Wardrobe is stinky. blue stain fungus in bathroom. Everything in bathroom is rusty. Hair dryer didn't work, iron didn't work. Even phone didn't work. Voltage is 220. Be careful. Cleaning can be done at 11Am or at 4pm. No schedule. Food is OK. Fresh yogurts vegetables and meet is enough...

The principal asset of this hotel: the beach. Buildings are old and are in the process of being renovated. Entire sections were closed due to that. Personnel warmful and careful. I will certainly go back to this hotel next year.

“Due to renovations, we had to change room twice due to late arrival. . Scent of fresh paint was too strong in our room upon arrival. We had to go back to the reception to ask for another room. They gave us older rooms at the ground floor for the night and in the morning they gave us another room for which we paid, i.e. superior with ocean view. They did good to settle the problem with very professionalism. Personnel at the reception is polite and care for its guests.”

“We had roon 1051 overlooking the sea and we were on the Mare side which is the livelier side , the Luna is much quieter has block 5 , 6 and 7 . Both have wonderful pools and bars. There were a lot of people who had been before who had taken their own cold cups with them that the staff were happy to refill with drinks of your choice . Take spare tooth brushes,tooth paste , make up , tights and leave your spare clothes and shoes for the locals , who find a lot of things we take for granted so hard to come by or are just out of their price range. We took apples from the hotel for the horses outside and the owner very politely asked if he could have them for his family as they were a rarity. The cars are also amazing 1950,s American let over from the trouble. I am in love with Cuba x ”
