Comments from titom on Hotel Playa Blanca :

We went to the Playa Blanca from 1 to August 8, 2010. We had a good deal ($ 575 / person), so we did not have high expectations

Positive :

Beautiful waves, beach relatively nice. Friendly staff. Facility clean enough. Rooms large enough.

Negative :

Very narrow range with lots of seaweed. Room to look very dated. Very ordinary pool with salt water only. Cold buffet and very little change. 20 minutes by train to get to the beach Sirenas, where activities are located. Beverages and food not included in the range Sirenas.

Comments from titom on Hotel Playa Blanca :

We went to the Playa Blanca from 1 to August 8 and the overall hotel was very average, but still acceptable.

Positive :

Friendly staff, restaurant on the edge of the pool pretty good, the sun was at the rendezvous, for those who like the waves, that's fine, clear water.

Negative :

We must move to another beach for activities included in the package, such as canoes and catamarans etc.. and beverages are not included in this range. A lot of insects on the dishes at the buffet, cold food buffet, very little choice at the buffet. It took 3 times to return the receipt to repair the air conditioning in our room to finally be moved. They were still missing stock of food or other objects.

Positive :

Staff has to perfection, great service and very welcoming. Music, dance and cocktail on arrival. Cleanliness is required. Very nice pool treated with salt. The beach is fun, big wave. Small shuttle to get to the quieter beaches with restaurant (Sirena Beach) and the visit of Dauphin. The small bus tour to the very small town is 6 pesos each to visit and it is a bus with air conditioning and a guide. Rum is cheaper at the airport, take note as well as memories.

Negative :

The hotel beach was not large because the winds were not favorable, then the sea went up our chairs. But there is always the beautiful beaches ... Care must be taken to taxis Cuban. They try to sell travel by mentioning that the shuttle will not leave until one o'clock. There were about ten in the train and we insisted that the driver take us to our hotel (Playa Blanca). He went up to ask for a peso each, and we refused. I mentioned that I was going to make a complaint because it is part of our package. Therefore, the exact time of the shuttle are not well known by all the travel companies. The hours are 13:30, 15:00 and 17:00 for the return.

Positive :

In general, we satisfait.Pour the off season, the service was not lacking. Nouriture good, the choice was good but not generous. The staff very friendly and courteous, polite and sometimes even with humor. This hotel was under the old banner of Barcelos, now, banner cubaine.Pour what is the beach of the hotel, it no is not large, but adequate, there are plenty of shade and most chaise.La time the beaches are désertes.Il is a shuttle that can take us to other beaches also hallucinante.C is my THIRD visit this island tale and I go back again and again and again. For its tranquility and natural state not invaded and exploited by being destructive is human. ..... Take advantage while there is still time.

Negative :

This is a small island, so 4 hotels maximum.Ce is not recommended for people who want to party. For trips is very limited. The orchestra is interesting evening, parcontre, in terms of performances, we can do without it (rotten). Aillor I saw in Cuba, much better than these! (I forgot I was there for four days, magnfique temperature. From 13 to 17 June 2010, very good to watch with special v, a, r.)

Positive :

Paraiso and Sirena beaches, the warmth, the sun! Near the airport. The wonderful staff! (Except a few, at the bar near the stage) Spiny lobsters, good food in general. Cleanliness, and the site of the chamber. Caribbean Sea, starry sky, constant breeze. La carte restaurant with stunning views of the sea gardener offers flowers to women every morning.

Negative :

Cigarette butts thrown overboard and left on the beach by tourists. Plastic glasses left on the beach by tourists. Little greenery near a swimming pool surrounded by cement sidewalks. Two distinct deep pools that do not communicate in half and cleaned without "swim up bar." Only one bar open in the evenings, too close to the outdoor entertainment, no other air-conditioned bar. Towels in the rooms stained. Hotel beach not so beautiful as this: many algae, not collected, buried (!) Sand blackened pieces of seaweed. And of course, full of waste from tourists! The "Pueblo Tour" (tour of the island's only village) offered by the team of the hotel entertainment is not worth the trouble, bad: the companion said nothing, except to his cell! No historical details, descriptions, one enters just where it leads us, it is not worth 6 CUC per person.

The hotel which is still not very old man begins to show signs of wear. Air conditioning not too effective with bungalows. The window of the bathroom which closes with rust, insects between easily. Towels with stains and some that are no longer too white. We prefer the Sol, not perfect but better.

Positive :

Beautiful beach, good service, good food.

Negative :

We requested a room with a bed, we had to pay an extra $ 250 to get it? Towels with spots and well worn. Air conditioning in the bungalows not very effective.

Comments from François C-M on Hotel Playa Blanca :

Positive :

In my opinion, Cayo Largo can boast some of the most beautiful beaches I've seen. This front was beautiful. My positive comments have unfortunately nothing to do with my package, hotel or personel but on Mother Nature has really spoiled this little island. Very quiet place for people who want to relax. The followers of naturism will be pampered.

Negative :

Hotel very ordinary but clean (Who decides the number of stars in Cuba? Always subtract 1 or 2 ;-) IMPORTANT; Unable to get $ CUC with your credit card at the hotel, so we were forced to go to the bank of the marina (the taxi costs, transaction fees etc $ 200 CUC almost cost me $ 250 Canadian dollars. Cuba is not renowned for its cuisine, but there are limits, I had hungry all week. I lost 5 lbs during my stay ;-( Even with 5 days in advance, we could not book the a la carte restaurant, complete according to them. We have yet been able to have a table by going without a reservation and $ 10 CUC spinning to the server. Note, however, the restaurant was almost empty!?!? fourth trip to Cuba, I did not realize how much the staff of the hotel is money, profiteering The formula ... almost'' all inclusive'' has changed a lot and tips we provide frequent service acceptable - Another fact that surprised me, the male staff (often married, divorced X times, with several children as well) seems to have no discomfort at racoller tourists, it is not uncommon for them to spend the night in the room thereof. I spent my week to watch my girlfriends and make sure they did not benefit too many of them - I would not send girls NEVER seulent Cayo Largo ...
