We really enjoyed this trip! Excursions to the Sierra Maestra, Santiago de Cuba, visit to Castillo del Morro, beaches, visiting a cave with bats, in short we enjoyed our trip!

Positive :

The food was good, nothing exceptional, but very good. The service was very friendly.

Negative :

Some areas of the hotel were inadequate and in need of renovation. The pool was neglected and needed painting.

beautiful scenery and very relaxing, pool facilities and renovations have needs, friendly staff, food ok for those who pay attention to their line, we like to go back for 5 years

Positive :

family spirit, price ok

Negative :

it's like luxury camping, lifts operate from time to time it makes us keep fit, we are in the true reality of the Cuban poverty and it makes us appreciate what we have.

Such a different environment! Mountains, a very comfortable temperature ... Beautiful holiday, but go back ???

Positive :

The environment is so different from what we imagine of Cuba, another expatriation style. The ability to move, bicycle, walking, scooter or car. The simplicity of the people, both tourists and workers or residents. Long-term tourists (over a month) there are pleasure and come back year after year. No tourism "the party", plenty of space to retreat if desired. Exercise: steps everywhere! The hotel is built on a hill, is full of charm! An elevator is available if you do not want to type the 97 steps to the beach buffet / lobby / pool.

Negative :

This is not negative as such, but the proportion of older people, when is not it changes the dynamic. They come in gang and settle in for several weeks; they even have their space reserved for the buffet! It's nice to see them laugh together, but when we did not 70 years ... The quality and diversity of food changed from one day to another, from the ok to whoops ... The restaurants the card are no more. The representative to the hotel (so I forget the name) is not really friendly, it often seems to bother. For cons, the employee (s) at the reception give a very good service! You get used to the ceiling passages that disgust, to the sound of pipes, which sometimes gives the impression that there is a flood in the ceiling. We accept that some markets are weaker than others. We have a swim in the sea a little further for clear water and no hay in background ... We live with the man and his family who spend their day on board the hotel's ground for you ask to give them your clothes, they bring water, sandwich or other right out of the ground to take a walk or go swimming. It's hot, jump in the pool ignoring the torn fabric on the edges, deep ... It's poor Cuba, but please if you make things for them, get a bit of the site, there lots of families around who work hard and do not have the time (or inclination?) to go ask you to the beach. Nevertheless, we are really happy with our trip to this area of ​​Cuba! A little (not too little anyway ...) investment in infrastructure and it may be possible to return. For the beauty of the landscape, the quality of the climate.

Beautiful place located in the Sierra Madre mountain range, second visit and will return.

Positive :

friendly staff, clean rooms, good food (somewhat limited), comfortable temperature.

Negative :

Less beautiful beach in Varadero that there could be some improvement on maintenance. Lack of affordable transportation to Santiago. .We Got by but if there was a bus that would make the shuttle, it would be more convenient.

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a place not too commercial for rest and relaxation in a superb natural setting with opportunities to make beautiful ballads on a bicycle or motorcycle in the region.

Positive :

very attentive staff, very clean, there is an effort to make repairs in the rooms immediately. My room had clearly been renovated. the food is good and varied and the range has been completely redone with a reconstructed stone pier. We can keep the bikes all day and they're free. There are quality evening shows. For walkers, it is possible to walk far to the end of the beach (which form a large bay - it's also the name of the nearest village) and visit the wonderful small organic garden near the beach. The hotel provides more toiletries and toilet paper that other State hotels. Finally, contrary to what many believe tourists, PUBLIC TRANSPORT, COMFORTABLE, CHEAP AND CONDITIONING (5 PESOS CUC - 6, $ 70 CA BY WAY -) IS AVAILABLE ONCE A DAY AT THE HOTEL DEPARTURE IN THE MORNING PARKING FOR EMPLOYEES 8 H 30 AND RETURN SANTIAGO (outside the Meliá) At 13 H 15.

Negative :

Excursions: too expensive and not suited to everyone's tastes (the most affordable local excursion requires knowing how to drive a motorcycle, however, there is no more dangerous than driving in Cuba, especially in the mountains.). I did not like that the person responsible for excursions and hotel reception LIE tourists about local transportation, obviously to sell excursions. One can very well travel without trips to the Santiago area because intercity Transmetro serves all the villages (see Positive reviews). Cable: several channels constantly unavailable. Sunwing did not give a very good service: pay too much things on board, free meals + extremely brief delay at departure and arrival. Too bad it's the only carrier to Santiago ...
