7/8 Visit to Brisas Santa Lucia (Be Live)
Neil and Titia, Kitchener, ON, Canada
We are returning to this resort with 15 family members including 7 children under 14 in March. The reasons include: 1. Great service by staff (PR Mr. Oldris Barreto Perez, waitresss Cleylis, waiters Fernando and Ricardo, brothers who play authentic Cuban music vocally and on guitars. 2. Entertainment for children of all ages. 3. Great coffee bar. 4. Patience of staff at the pool and patio bars 5. Wonderful sand beach that stretches for kilometres. 6. Attractive grounds with flowering shrubs and gardens. 7. Great opportunities for bird watching on the property, across the road from the resort in the salinas...and completely safe to walk down the road past the village toward La Boca 8. Friendly artisans who chat with no pressure attached. 9. Snorkelling has improved right in front of the resort. 10. Friendly staff who prepare omelettes, fresh pasta including pizza (cuban style), cut fresh fruit for breakfast, etc. With respect to food, we would be remiss in not reminding 1st timers to Cuba that by and large, the food is really organic without the prices that we would face in Canada. This applies to vegetables, fruit, pork, chicken, and eggs, As a person who was raised on a farm, i find the flavours that we seldom can find in Canada any more, very special. Every place may have negative aspects. When one considers the price and that the major part of our total all inclusive $ stays in Canada (Travel agents, Airport service (checkin, airfare, fuel, meals on board, salaries of pilots, baggage handlers, air attendants, etc,) then not much resides in Cuba. Even so, rooms are always very clean. Bars are open 24 hours; food and or snacks are available 24 hours; pool and pool area is always clean. Nightly entertainment and daily activities leave nothing to want. That does not happen at an overnight stay Canada. Brisas Santa Lucia suffered tremendously from a hurricane a couple of years ago. The resiliance of the management and staff to reopen it for the tourist season was nothing short of miraculous. Finally, we have noted over a 10 year period, a real effort to improve many amenities. Cubans are friendly, gracious and a proud people, responding to "Hola!" and "Gracias!". We wish all visitors a relaxing and enjoyable stay at this very special place. Neil and Titia Arrival: Forget about the 2 hour trip from the airport. Enjoy the scenery. You are on a holiday. Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel: Visit private homes for lobster. Make arrangements with buggy drivers.
The best thing about my stay was...Great service, beach, music
