Hotel comfortable and pleasant, even in the old part. Own. Food very acceptable. Good service to the cafeteria and bar. Beautiful long beach chairs in good quantity, though several had slats broken. Clear sea without waves. Shuttle service to Trinidad and cheap practice. Evening shows (in 2 or 3 weeks) holds well, although too Americanized. As negative point, the shower water was time consuming and has to be warm you had to hold the latch of the toilet long before the water s evacuated.

Positive :

Location, beach service.

Negative :

Bathroom in the old part.

Place a little distant from the airport of Cienfugeos, c is to say 90 minutes. Moreover, three hours from the airport of Santa Clara, evirer at all costs! Were lodges old part of the hotel, really old! Odd rooms very cold, we had to ask twice has extra blankets to warm us up. No sun on that side in the rooms. Book together flawless rating! Staff a bit cold, not pesos pesos in tips or even neutral attitude. Food, c is Cuba! Moreover, wine at dinner and supper, but you have to run after the waiter or waitress, not too prepared to serve us! A la carte restaurants, average! Cold attitude of the servers, not able to unhook them a smile, or just better ... not that food at the buffet, but easy to get reservations if it is to 8:30 in the morning, and it may recur many times that we want. Very cold water in the pool, two or three people are risky sy! It must be said that it was sunny all week, but as the beginning of the night the temperature dropped several degrees! Activities to be avoided at all costs! Tourist traps. Dolphins, not allowed to get on the platform to take pictures, they sell us these 40 pesos! Moreover, they are not employees. We had a 4 year old toddler who was swimming with dolphins, it was frozen (cold water) and they have categorically denied that he comes before the other. His mother ended up taking it out of the water without that he could no swimming with dolphins, while the cost was $ 65 just for swimming (child prices). Trekking on horseback, mentioned by the Sol Caribe representante for beginners, intermediate rather I would say! Hiking and Rambling, be fit, it goes for 45 minutes in rocky soil and the guide did not have time or desire, or perhaps both of us wait! Hiking in the Fall for Jeep, ditto! You have to climb 25 steep steps to view the water and the natural pool is 12 degrees Celsius is! Visit Trinidad, do not take the guided tour, go by taxi instead and let you deposit in the colonial! Worth the 8 pesos to 8 pesos and back! Very nice and opportunity to make purchases at great price! Evening performances, repetitive and not really interesting, instead of going side of the disco, drinks included. Beautiful beach chairs but all near or slightly broken and often unusable! Sand fleas has 16 hours from the after-noon, then we must leave the beach no later than seventeen hours if you want to avoid getting bitten! Turquoise sea, of all beauty! Sol Caribe representante available only a few hours a day, often would reply: Maybe, probably, a little pressure for a given hour for the departure activities, in short, information dropper and not planning ahead al. We knew that morning if the activity took place or not! In terms of activities included, no pedaloes available 5 to 7 days, no possibility to make the catamaran 4 days on 7, not knowing why ... Tomorrow, maybe the answer was! However, no waves on the Caribbean Sea! Information of the next meeting of the shadow al activity in the lobby, with lots of people who gravitate around or the great difficulty understanding the representante.

Positive :

Range, value for money

Negative :

Activities, attitude of employees, rooms

Ancon is a beautiful place to spend a quiet week, take long walks on the beach, swim in a calm and warm sea (early January), do some diving in the pared Aguilar, sunbathe or hide under a palapa. Never has the impression that too many people on the beach or in the sea, however, the chairs begin to age, many were cracked and impossible to use by a person weighing more than normal. Regarding the food is rather ordinary, even in restaurants where you have to make reservations the same day by the line in the morning at 8 am. But if I had wanted to make a gastronomic journey, I would have felt not directed to Cuba! The staff is very friendly and cooperative throughout, maids, in the restaurant, lobby bar, even the gardeners and porters are friendly. You pay two pesos a day for our key card controls access to the small safe located in each room, but well worth it. I hesitate to say that because it might prevent me from having what I want when I go back next year: it's worth paying a little more and stay in superior rooms, most modern and located in a building a little away from the main building. The rooms are larger and there is no lack of hot water this week, what happened to the upper floors of the main building while we were there.

Positive :

Calm and warm sea, beautiful beach, friendly staff

Negative :

The food, but it is in Cuba

I was there from 8 to 22 December 2009, the first time at this hotel ... in the upper room on the 2nd floor. Very clean, enough storage space, small refrigerator and 110v outlet in the bathroom. No problem with hot water instead I even almost got burned two times. Sea view and balcony (very hot day but at night it is perfect). The beach is beautiful and very long to walk. Lots of palapas and chairs, no need to book at 6 o'clock in the morning. The water was warm and clear the first few days. Subsequently, qqs algae and cloudy water due to the winds (c a detail for me). Temperature was hot and humid except from 18 to 22, the day of departure. It was cooler especially at night when we needed a wool-tite. For the food I ate at the buffet very well especially at night. People with me have a great meal too. We had fish almost every night and a choice of meat on the grill all day. The a la carte restaurants I have not liked except the Italian was good. By cons, it's just a matter of personal taste as all the others have eaten well. Tour the city of Trinidad not to be missed! It is superb and very easy to walk in safety. The jeep tour to El Nicho is also worthwhile. I also swim with dolphins in Cienfuegos, I just loved it! I traveled with Sunwing and two destination representatives were extremely friendly and attentive. In short, I apportion tomorrow morning for this place!

Negative :

The breakfast buffet, not much interesting but I am not starved anyway. The catamaran trip to Playa Blanco, a little disappointed with apnea and if you have no shoes water on the island it is difficult to swim because a lot of rocks. Nothing else to add to the negatives. I went with no expectations, it's the best way to avoid disappointment in my opinion: o)

For the second time was this hotel: very friendly staff, general cleanliness. Beautiful vegetation. Beach is beautiful enough palapas and lounge chairs for everyone. Important to take upper chamber, the difference is ca. Cienfuegos also choose as a destination, not Santa Clara. (Much shorter bus ride) The food, if it is not too difficult is ok. The a la carte restaurants open alternately, one could go there as often as wanted. To our taste the seafood is so good. Lobster in Ida Trinidad delicious (ask you Mirelbis, the Sunwing rep) Lobster at its Casa Jorge 10 minutes from the hotel, really good and nice family atmosphere. It can be found on the beach ... Be careful not Andrew ... unreliable ... make sure it is Jorge.

Negative :

No beach service for 3 days to paddle, kayak or hobby cat ... without explanation. Of small maususe bibites who have bitten everywhere, fortunately vinegar has come to end. Why there tjrs a couple of people and completely Quebecers who do not know vivrent wherever we go??
