Great food, staff and beach

We had a great time here. The breakfast was always spot on, dinner did get abit repeatative but this is not a complaint as all the food was well coked and fresh items were being prepared all the time just like any other buffet type set up, some ppl make it work some ppl dont. Beds were great! Best we have had in a while travelling, only small problem was the music being played until quite late, but we ended up having dinner later and enjoying a few nightime drinks.until.the music quietened down. All in all was great bamg for buck

The best thing about my stay was...

Okay

The food was terrible, coming from UK, expected to eat some seafood, like fish, shrimps etc. We can eat as much meat as we want in UK. Same desserts everyday. Quality of cakes etc terrible poor quality, sugary with sugar filled icing. Get some reciepe books pls. Staff didn't speak English, very hard to communicate. Especially if English speaking tourists bring in revenue for Cuba. You need more beach umbreallas, hotel capacity is 100+ rooms & you have only 8 beach umbrellas. People do not wish to get burnt in the sun. You could have a fresh water shower by the beach if people needed a rinse after a swim in the sea. Music was too loud till after 11pm. After spending the whole day on the beach, sometimes you want quiet time in the room not listening to thumping music, should be in a enclosed space so not to disturb people who want peace & quiet at night. People come for a holiday to relax.

The best thing about my stay was...

The beach is absolutely divine, gorgeous. Weather was lovely. Staff on beach were very very good. Also all the beach equipment made time on the beach very enjoyable.

Good value

I got a really good price and must say it was good value for the money. Nice staff, good location and good service. Even if they didn't have all service open, because of low season. The rooms are a bit run down too.
