Suggest a hotel ... friendly staff, clean room ..

Positive :

Many pools .. Animation quiet, a place to rest!

Negative :

Period where we had a lot of jellyfish in the sea, we could not enjoy the beach. Also the beach was rough ... Despite the a la carte restaurants, we found virtually the same menu in all restaurants (buffet and à la carte).

We were at the hotel Play Cayo Santa Maria from 4 to 11 February 2014. Despite some problems with room at arrival (bruiit), the customer service of the hotel and the travel agent TMR went above and beyond to accommodate us and make our stay enjoyable.

Well maintained hotel. 5 beautiful pools and a wading pool in the mini club. Exceptional sea with its various hues. Beach without pebbles. Rooms very clean and new. We had a room on the second floor of Block 15. Very well located near the beach and with a mini sea view room doors are tightly closed. Our room had a great shower. I know that family-type rooms were equipped with a whirlpool bath and a separate shower. With Air Canada Vacations we already received our arrival the bus Documents with our maps for our room. The journey from the airport takes about 1:30 Santa Clara. There is a stop at a hotel before ours. Do not forget to keep 25 pesos for outbound / person. Children 2 years and older pay the same as an adult.

Positive :

Good variety of food at the main buffet. There are means to eat something different every day. At lunch there is the fresh squeezed orange juice in front of us. There is also an opportunity to be making smoothies with other freshly squeezed fruit. The fruits were there was honeydew, pineapple, papaya, watermelon, banana. There is a coffee machine buffet with different choices: coffee with milk, coffee, espresso, chocolate milk, hot milk, hot water etc.. There is also the choice of some herbal teas. We do not drink coffee but it seemed to be popular with fans. There is also a wide choice of cafes and drink in the lobby was crowded every day. Possibility of having the "slush" strawberry or lime I think the lobby and beach bar. Ranchon buffet near the beach is open for lunch and dinner. We did not go for lunch but dinner is mainly pasta stations, pizza and grills and a very good paella with grill station. There is also the Ranchon a small a la carte menu which was a bit misunderstood and with the possibility of eating good shrimp. Near the beach bar but not open every day, possibility of hot dogs and paninis for lunch. Apparently the week before we arrived there were chips but we have not seen the week no restaurant / buffet. We went to the Asian restaurant card with a choice of dishes and the service excellent (impressive even for a restaurant of Cuba). The service was fast and had totally different things buffets (entry, soup, main course and dessert). The Romantico restaurant had lobster free of charge. Plenty of chairs available at the beach but book before 10:30. The beach is beautiful and well cleaned. There is a lifeguard who is very Allerte days yellow or red flag and ensure that people do not venture too far. We had beautiful waves the last 3 days. The ice cream bar a big must. We've traveled a lot in the south and this is the first time I see it. They offer Nestle products (drumstick, sandwich, Revelo style with or without nuts of all kinds). When you go to the counter, the lady leaves her little basket and we actually choose. If you want something that is not in the basket (eg sandwich) ask for it! There is also a good choice of ice cream. The beer you can drink Cuban beer in their glass bottles and there is opportunity to buy imported beers for 2 pesos. The mini-fridge is filled every day with one liter of water, 2 cans of beer Cuban (Crystal or other) and 2 cans of local soft drinks. Opportunity to purchase one hour of internet wifi for 4 pesos and wifi still works fast enough to watch his emails in the lobby. The internet was too slow for me to make skype. Yt he also has an internet room with 4 computers, I guess it was the same price. If you need to consult the medical clinic, it is located across the street in front of our hotel (10-15 min walk but taxi 2 min for 2-3 pesos). It seems that the service is fast and they have a wide range of drugs.

Negative :

Very narrow range depending on the tides. Was different from day to day. The buffet is under the concept of "stations": pasta station, grill station, pizza station, station rice, egg station, station waffles, pancakes stations, etc.. When you want to eat quickly it can be long. There are only fruits, vegetables, cheese, cold meats, cereals, bread and desserts buffet style. We stayed with my 2 year old daughter and there was little highchairs rush hour buffet (4-5 chairs). There are 2 high chairs available at Ranchon (buffet near the beach) and 1 max 2 per la carte restaurant. We must hurry to find one for the book. The restaurant in the "Seafood" card was practically a buffet with only 3 choices on the menu (the same things that we could eat at Ranchon) and no entries in the map, only a small buffet of cold meats, vegetables and cheese and dessert buffet. The same choices that at the main buffet. I advise you to book the other restaurants instead. It should also be booked as soon as possible upon arrival. Ask at the counter of the lobby, they will direct you to the right place. We do not shipping as we were with my daughter but we took the bus to the panoramic tower cayo sat outside for 2 pesos / person (free for small). The tower is the toned milk at all hotels and frankly there is not much to see. We go further inland, you can not see the sea There is a stop at the Dolphinarium (it will cost only 1 peso to go around without panaramic therefore less expensive than paying a package with a tour operator and you can pay appropriate options made there) and there is a stop at the "mall" that offers small restaurants and where traders have tables with local crafts. If you want souvenirs this is the place but if this is not the first time you go to Cuba, it's the same. My last comment concerns the Air Canada airline ... Bring your lunch and snacks as pizza sandwiches and wraps sonmt paying and they have enough for the whole plane. If you sit at the back of the unit, there will be more choice you made!

Very nice stay, an unforgettable week so that makes us win!

Positive :

The beach is great, many a la carte restaurant, public areas are clean, exceptional landscaping, quiet! And the staff is always smiling and attentive to our needs ...

Negative :

The buffet is more than usual, but the a la carte restaurants saves the day. The room is clean, but no more, there could be a little more cleaning done! The service is a little slow, but we're on vacation after all!
