HOTEL VERY CLEAN, EXCELLENT FOOD AND SERVICE exeptionnel ANYWHERE ON THE SITE. A PLACE OF REST ASSURED. MORE TRAVEL TO CUBA AND THIS IS, WHERE I HAVE THE BEST EATING AND WHERE I HAD THE BEST SERVICES. ME AND MY SPOUSE SELECTED AIRCRAFT THIS PLACE FOR A COMPLETE REST AND THAT'S WHAT WE HAVE. CAYO LARGO A 27 KM SO THIS SUMMARY TO THE EXITS CATAMARAN. FOR THOSE WHO WANT OUT AND SEE IT'S NOT THE BEST PLACE. WE RENT A SCOOTER AND HAVE DONE IN THE TOWER L.ILE 1/2 HOUR. BEACH SOIL PELICANO IS THE BEST OF THE HOTEL, LOCATION. PARADISIO AND BEACHES ARE A MUST SEE SIRENA We went 3 DAYS.

Negative :

A LOT OF WIND, 4 RED FLAG DAYS AT THE HOTEL BEACH ALMOST COMPLETELY GONE BY THE WAVES. MANY ITALIAN TRAVELLERS IN GANG AND ANIMATION TEAM ALMOST ANY ITALIAN SO IT FEELS LIKE A BIT OF FOREIGNERS IN ITALY. BUT FRO, CA M DO, NOT BECAUSE I WAS so upset THE REST FOR ME. IN ADDITION, IN THE RESTAURANT ON A MORE SERVICE BECAUSE OF ITALIANS DO NOT GIVE TIP.

Positive :

staff (always the same) work schedule 20 days / 7 days Excellent for young children (we were there with us girls and 4 years 18 months 1/2). The beach is wonderful (the cossonade) much better than north of Cuba. The report excellent price / quality

Negative :

Not many high chair, so hurry to get it, if the baby is autonomous without the high chair, travel will be easier. It is an island within an island, some days he missed the cervesa or money to the Hotel.

Positive :

Very nice hotel. Quality / price excellent. The hotel beach is super nice. There are two more beaches where you can take the train which are also very beautiful and is home to sea stars The buffet is very good and the servers are super nice and welcoming (Rene). For lunch, we had a great meal at the restaurant located on the beach (rancho). The a la carte International is super super good. We did the catamaran trip and visit the island to hygouanes (to do). Very clean.

Negative :

At the reception, the staff does not speak much French. When we wanted to take possession of the rooms, we did not understand and it took our guide air transat.

Positive :

Beautiful Spanish style complex. We had a room with sea view The site and the room are very clean. Warm and friendly staff. Fast and impeccable service. Food at the buffet and the two a la carte restaurants very good. The chef is Italian and we see the difference. We had the most beautiful beach of the three most popular complexes (SOL CLUB & BARCELO). Beautiful waves that we rammassent not as in Mexico (Green flag the whole week). Catamaran trip very pleasant evening. Very nice weather during our stay. In short, I would recommend this without hesitation.

Negative :

This hotel is a club for Italian. I think it is somewhat invasive. I tried to avoid them because they are too exhubérants. This would not prevent me from returning. I have not tripe on Sirena, too many people. I preferred to playa Pilar in Cayo Coco, where we feel alone in the world.

Back from a week in paradise! Beautiful Spanish style resort with a beautiful vegetation. We had a room with sea view The site and the room are very clean. There are several trash cans and ashtrays at our disposal. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. Efficient service. I never felt like I bother them. The food is very good, as much as two buffet restaurants in the map. We had the most beautiful beach of the three most popular complexes (Sol Club & BARCELO). The waves are fun and not dangerous as in Mexico (green flag all week). Catamaran trip very pleasant evening. It was sunny all week. A little chilly at night, but the week progressed, it became warmer. In short, I would stay here again!

Negative :

The italients are very invasive. Simply avoid them.

Positive :

Excellent hotel great location with beautiful beach. Vage a little stronger this week but swimmable. Toujour green flag. Hotel very clean, no waste drags on the floor, neatly trimmed shrubs. Excellent service at the bar, restaurant and room. Tips are de rigueur on the site if you need any extras. The hotel staff will provide you with impeccable service then a tip is appropriate. The beaches of Sirena and Paraiso Vallent on their entire journey. Lots of starfish after Sirena (do not leave the water because it will die). My kids also loved the sea turtle farm Many varieties in the buffet every morning and night ... Excellent buffet, it lacks nothing .. tried fresh pasta prepared by chef ... Verily excellent . Bar and two snacks, impeccable service with Moya, Edward and Erik servers that gave us an exceptional service throughout the week. (Tipping is up ... The staff is very courteous and friendly and seems to enjoy our presence at their hotel which is not always the case elsewhere. We were in block 44, we had a renovated room Beautiful sea view room with nice bathroom. In conclusion, great week of family vacation and we will return to this Certainly hotel. This hotel is undervalued and should be rated a minimum of a 4 star in Cuba. We were in Cuba at least 10 times and can compare. Happy holidays.

Negative :

The room is a bit small for 4 people but okay. The animation on the site is very ordinary and at times deficient. OK for people who do not want it brews too. The Italians on the site because they chialent lot, requires the hotel to have a higher standard of quality in this hotel then everything is fine ... except the Italians. They are very very impolient and colon (we also own). They never give a tip and wonder why their service is poor and they wander always pass to the second bar, buffet, snack and it makes them frustrated and even more .... they chialent short while they should be ignored by with as they are there. The trick gave tips and you pass them ...

Positive :

We had a very very nice holiday, I would stay here again! The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Regarding food, the buffet is very good and quite diverse. We enjoyed the a la carte restaurants for the ambiance and service. We had a nice room very clean with a balcony and we could see the sea and hear the sound of the waves ... wow! Soil Pélicano the beach is very well compared to other hotels on the island. Always possible to have a chaise lounge and a quiet place. By taking a train, we have access to beautiful Playa Sirena and Playa Paraiso :) Do not forget your sunscreen!

Negative :

The only thing we did not like is the attitude of Italians. They take up much space, are stressed, talk loudly without concern for others ... but you have to do a little away from them and it's heaven!

Positive :

Soil Pélicano the beach is far more than other hotels where they are rocks. But the waves are strong and that is why we always went to the playa sirena or paraiso. These are the most beautiful beaches that can be accessed by train for free. The buffet is very diverse. The bar is baking excellent.Ne not ask you to lunch at noon if you go to sirena or paraiso, make it yourself the night before with food from the buffet, it will be better! If you walk for 15-20 minutes right on the beach sirena you will be able to see a multitude of starfish and white fish swimming between your legs.

Negative :

Prepare to eat cold and go after the Italians. Facilitators are Italian and speak only Italian, some French speaking. The activities are mainly addressed to Italian leaders are trying to include Quebec, but it was not too interested in just being with Italian snob and we are stupid (especially in large group). The shows are all in Italian or Spanish, we do not know make a difference so he talks fast. In short, there are also beautiful beaches elsewhere in cuba with less Italian. I would not go back because there is not much thing to do, but the beaches are still nice to bathe.

Positive :

Small, clean and pleasant, especially Serena beach super at 15 min. by train, buffet very good for Cuba. The people who work there are nice and friendly. The renovated rooms are great. It is a place to rest. Dinner with lobster was served on December 24 and we did not eat lobster on the catamaran with dinner at sunset over a visit to the island of Igouanes more diving must do this excursion. One can walk for hours along the beach.

Negative :

Upon arrival at the airport not available in convertible pesos and reception of the hotel there are no more, it was told to go to the Marina (6 miles) to the bank, I n 'have not liked that answer and more the next night he could change our Canadian dollars that we could change some money at a time so we were paying our tour with our credit card. There are many Italians in this hotel and they go before you to take the little train at the bar ... etc. this is normal for them.

Positive :

This is our third stay in this place and we will definitely return. It should however be aware that the beach can appear and disappear. By cons, walking a bit, there is always a nice and quiet place to extend.

Negative :

You should know that this hotel is always very popular with Italians and that they lack much of etiquette: do not know to wait their turn, speak at any time and any place extremely strong, settled before the stairs of the has the range to play petanque and take the sun ... Finally "all the hotel belongs to them" ...
