Positive :

Enchanting, smiling and courteous even though many former employees are now at the Barcelo. Many services even if I went in low season. Pools more than adequate. For food, even if I was home I would find it repetitive to always go to the buffet even then it's a bit the same here. People really appreciate the small gifts and they will be very dedicated throughout the stay. If any gift, service, and still good but less thoughtful touches. Go ahead ... you return

Negative :

The trip from the airport to the hotel is a bit long but the dam of 58 km is very impressive. The beach is not always A-1 and is difficult to walk. For jellyfish, he seems to be due to temperature and punctual. Finally, some negative ...

Positive :

Temperature outside while we are in the rainy season because it rains at night or in the evening rather than day. Viellotte but very clean (the floor is the oldest hotel on the site, was built in 2001). Free safe in rooms. Sheets and towels changed regularly but always stained ... Beautiful long beach with several palapas and chairs (new and comfortable at the beach and pool), however they started to move the rake in the morning just as we were leaving so algae are spread along the beach all day (he must say that this is the low season). You can market at least 45 minutes to Las Dunas or the Barcelo which is very pleasant. The huge pool is well maintained. The piano bar is a great place to spend evenings in good company. The Italian restaurant is delicious. Throughout the site, the staff is courteous and friendly and they try to satisfy you soon. The kids club and mini club are widely used by hotel guests. For drinking, the slush at the lobby bar is delicious! When the coffee machine works, you can have a great cappuccino or latte at the buffet and the lobby bar.

Negative :

Do not look for the animation team at the beach, it does not exist. By cons, they are present at the pool. We were treated to music once a beach: one morning during our week. I do not like me achaler for games, but the island music is always appreciated at the beach. Beware of ants in your room, they are invasive. We must ask the maid and they will use a spray quickly. I went at least ten times in Cuba, and this is the first time I found a cockroach in my room (before the final day). It was big ... (I can reassure you by cons, the rooms are very clean). The gym is closed (with a chance in it!) But the bell-boy cart takes you to the hotel next door. This is fine as it is air-conditioned gym and. There was no pizza at the restaurant at the beach ... This is a hotel that is not necessarily well maintained for a 4 star. The hotel shop opens 9 to 6. If you're hungry at night, forget ca. There are many varieties of the buffet but it is so lacking in taste. There are also many jelly fish in the sea, but it depends on the day. One of the guys Yacht Club hotel and took some in his hand to show us that AC does not hurt. He explained that it is in the way of their touch that will burn or not. The drinks are not always what you asked. It is often disappointing, but there is great variety. Unfortunately for all of us, we had to get the doctor to our room. They have difficulty speaking English. If you know someone who speaks Spanish, it'll help you. The doctors do what he can with what they have. You bring your first aid kit if possible (cipro, pepto bismol, electrolyte powder ...). That should help you if you are sick because in Cuba, once a medical problem occurs, they favor either injections in the arm or buttock.

Positive :

Very nice weather, beautiful beaches, friendly staff, pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Very good thin crust pizzas served at the little restaurant near the beach, for lunch. The staff is particularly friendly. It really is the best place on the entire site!

Negative :

The food served at buffets, as everywhere in Cuba, is unfortunately not up to our standards. There lack of spices, herbs and seasonings and meats, like fish, tend to be overcooked and dry (perhaps for fear of bacteria ...). The desserts are very good, by cons. It still feels some improvement over the years, especially with regard to the variety. As for the beach, the water really is turquoise and clear, but tourists are not the only ones who enjoy it: it is invaded by jellyfish (jelly fish), especially in the morning. Some days it was almost impossible to swim in peace.

Sea and beach breathtaking WOWWWWW! Transparent aqua water and white sand. Wall to wall sunshine .... Hotel room clean and correct. Shows every night at 22:00 excellent (dancers of high caliber) immitation of Michael not to be missed SUPER. Courteous and helpful staff. Beautiful vegetation throughout the site. Very good for a 4 star in Cuba. A short walk around 15 min. Walking in Apne plngé not to be missed, bring your mask and snorkel to be done flawlessly. Catamaran free to try. I stay there again.

Negative :

Without proper food more, we finally find something not to our liking that we eat all week. CAUTION Jellyfish for two days a little disappointing. Air conditioning in the room often broken. Déffectueux safety deposit box and the toilet does not drain the water we were obliged to fill the bin of water to fill the tank and flush the toilet. Drinks not very good and very limited choices by comparing Mexico and the Republic.
