resort and room recommendations Corales or Carisol Jan 4-18

Hi,

I am trying to figure out which hotel and room best suits my needs. I love peace and quiet and the sound and view of the ocean and sorry ....to say dislike pool music /games ,entertainment and general noisiness. I prefer to eat outdoors ,don't mind walking and am not picky about food...just about the location /musty smell of my room.I definitely prefer upper level (top if possible)

I would appreciate any and all insights and recommendations. I have stayed at many 3 star beach resorts in Cuba and seems the only issue I sometimes have is finding that great room location especially since I will be staying 2 weeks.

Hi guys,

I was in Corales section 2 years ago, stayed second floor in 200 block. All evening entertainments are in Corales near the pool. Carisol is quieter part. Here you can find the map: http://www.resortsmaps.com/ however there is only Corales section.

Balconies in 200 and 300 are on the seaside so night music didn't bother me much. Blocks 400 and 500 had their balconies on pool side so avoid it if you prefer quiet environment, or try to stay on Carisol side.

If it fits your budget and is available, I would book an oceanview bungalow (Corales). Quieter, better air conditioners, nice view (particularly the upstairs ones).

thanks, I will check that out.

What is the difference between Corales and Carisol section. Sunwing is Showing it as " Carisol los Corales"

How do you know where you are booking ?

While recently booking Carisol Los Corales, my travel agent was unable to book a specific section, she told me it'd be up to the hotel. We're going to contact the hotel about 2 weeks before our arrival and ask for a specific room/section--or perhaps we might even ask for an upgrade to a bungalow.

Getting in touch with the hotel will usually result in you getting the section you want. Carisol wasn`t open when I was there recently, but likely will be before Christmas.

we stayed in March corales side. Carisol was closed. As eeefarm said if you want quiet beach,ocean book a bungalow.
