Positive :

The ROOM: 8226. One of the loins on the site. Spacious height and general ceramic very clean, very clean bedding and household. I was not expecting as nice for the price. (I paid $ 913 for my trip, single occ., Taxes included last minute). BEACH: Beautiful beach in front of the hotel. 8 out of 10. Since few coconut trees, I could not put a 10/10 but the beach is really nice and the water is turquoise blue. Towards the nightclub, there are 10-15 minutes from rocks along the sea and then, a totally deserted beach with a few tourists from the hotel as I do from time to time. It is possible to walk for at least an hour and a half and I have not seen the end. Perfect for being alone or in pairs. No beach vendors, except one place leaving the site, opposite direction to descothèque. There are 6-8 Cubans who have plenty to redeem against your clothing or pesos. They are nice. They leave you quiet when you go out of their working radius of 5 to 10 m. I bought small souvenirs at good prices. SEA: there are beautiful fish 25 cm in front of the hut to kayak. Nose 10 cm needle-shaped blue with red tip. There are come eat my offering of bread in my hands at 50 m from the edge. The slope is very small (50 m of water at the navel). Light waves. Before I arrived, it seems that the sea was no wave. APNEA: beautiful site and cheap 12 pesos ($ 14 CAN). DIVING: cheap (30 pesos or $ 33 CDN) but SAFETY ISSUE: I was landed with an instructor and another diver and are left with the boat for 50 minutes with the goup of apnea. At least, it was great: there is a wall at the bottom of the sea It descends 75 feet along a coral wall or stone and we see that this wall is never ending. What a feeling. After 30 min. I showed the instructor my bottle was increased from 150 to 50 (in red). Avoid eating too many cucumbers before diving! I continued the rest of my diving with him on the same bottle in his jacket still hanging on to complete the exploration and decompression of the trays. There are cigar-shaped corals over 1 m high that are fabulous to see. The equipment seemed to me recently and they thought to check the date of my departure to avoid diving too close to my date of departure by plane (for nitrogen ...). I do not think it would. DISCO: There is a beautiful nightclub in the hotel, on the edge of a bay seawater The music is excellent as we have here in Quebec. Spacious appearance of new or recent. A couple of the host hotel come to set the mood. They are the top guns of salsa and they invited us to dance in a group, online or not. You can see fish on the dock of the nightclub. People have fished but failed to take something. PUERTO PADRE: Puerto Padre is 45 minutes away by taxi (25 pesos or $ 29 Cdn. One way.) Disco great. 5 pesos ($ 6 Can. For input, 3 beers included). Located behind the church. Good music. Some Cuban seems to be part of a welcoming committee very special for single tourists. They are enterprising and know what they want but they leave you quiet your request. Bici-taxi (taxi biciclette) all day and all night. The city is safe day and night. To sleep in Puerto Padre, or casa de casa particular rental (hostel room), family atmosphere at 217 Maceo Street (just after the turn round, the first street on your right, you're passing. (20 pesos, $ 23 Can) + meals according to your wishes. phone numbers available at the reception of the Hotel Covarrubias exchange booth or from the hotel. Internet available in Puerto Padre, but for tourists but for Cubans (6 pesos for 1 hour). INTERNET: also available at the hotel, but useful for low speed check and send email (Free Sunwing customer) or 7-8 pesos (9 $) for one hour during the week for other tourists. often occupied by other visitors. SHOWS and entertainment: Comedy show with mime on pre-registration: good effort. Show Dancers from Cuba are best! bingo and dance classes every day. Everything is in three languages: Spanish, English, French. MEALS: J 'ate well. The buffet is quite varied but very few shrimp. Lobster available for 12 pesos ($ 14 Cdn). Me I have taken on the grill instead of boiled and it was excellent (I'm picky about it ).

Negative :

In GENERAL: Site very isolated, NOTHING around. At 2:40 the airport for about 140 km (road to redo). Ideal for quiet relaxation or for a family. Less advisable if your goal is to do a lot of meetings and visit the other hotels (there are none). Room: very little hot water in my shower, just a trickle. Cold water was rafaichissante but was not cold enough to warrant a room change for me. To rinse the shampoo, you take a good breath and you wash you faster. After, you feel better because it lowers the temperature. 220 Volts: providing a conversion adapter to 110 flights as required. There was a dryer in the room.

Positive :

This hotel deserves three and a half stars. The site, the beach, sea and corals, everything is beautiful. The rooms are much larger than normal. Fishing enthusiasts, you'll love. I would go back ...

Negative :

From a general consensus between the road and Covarrubias Holguin is very damaged, you lose too much time. We really need that repairs the floor to make the journey much like that of Santa Lucia.

Positive :

Wow! The beach, the sea exceptional! I'm well rested and I also made the most of water sports: catamaran, snorkeling to see the fish, kayak, swim, .. . Officials were willing to tell me how to do, where to go, what to see, ... Great! The buffet was good and delicious omelettes morning. Always lots of fruit and bread was TOO good! More than one server spoke French (Yovanni and Rene). The staff was very friendly. The bars were very good in general. Cesar is very good pina colada! Doctor and nurses very caregivers (see mosquitoes below)

Negative :

La carte restaurant ... I got eaten alive by mosquitoes. At the bar, choice of drinks varied from day to day, but hey it's not so bad! Given the distance (2:30) excursions are limited, which in my case is not a problem because I really wanted to enjoy the sea and sun. The shows at night enough fans, I liked the music cons. Animation positive or negative ... I was not interested so I did not participate, but I think it was pretty "basic".

As for the beach and the sun was very good. the road for very long. To rest it is a good place.

Negative :

Services for toilets, poorly entretenues.La already very long road, and especially full of holes. (2.5 hrs) of tourst. Too bad for such a beautiful beach poorly maintained. Oil changes are picked up in the rooms, are left to the dogs and cats outside and take inventory. The desired nouriture remains always the same and tasteless. Luckily he had the spaghetti.

This comment is verified

Positive :

* The cleanliness of the rooms and their immense size. * The beauty of the beach is amazing, probably the + best I have seen to date. A coral reef in 100 'of the board, with 5' of water (thus dismounted) and possibility of lots of fish to be seen at various apnea, a marvel and a chance there was that! ! * The chocolate ice cream was delicious and a chance ... * These are the three only positives of the site.

Negative :

* The bad taste of bedroom furniture takes away the charm throughout. * There are species of large white larvae of 6 "long with a portion of the beach, is truly disgusting and algae and trainerie after bad weather slow to be cleaning the beach, which removes the still there charm of the beautiful beach they enjoy there. * The food is totally and incredibly pathetic! No fresh fruit (peach, pineapple and cherries cane only). Serve juice cannages as syrup for pancakes and French toast. No choice, never fruit of the sea Butter is infable! The soup tasted dishwater. Constantly the same food in different forms. Repeat the same mosus bar dough (without a variety of day to day) every day was becoming unbearable. Same for the omelet bar in the morning! Ham is almost the only meat they know. tomatoes are almost green tjrs. The only salad they know used rapping is the cabbage, I have not seen a piece of lettuce a week! The toast cooked in advance, what a ridiculous idea ... The sausages every morning seemed to be trjs sausages to the hot dog beach bar, again cooked and chopped. The beach bar did not offer hot dogs and tjrs hambergers as planned and available hours, more often than what we could eat a sandwich and cheese guess what .... ham on a bun ... Always the same Hamberger serves no good (yellow or pink cake). short, was very far from where I am worse after eating 8 trips in the south!): The only good meal, a la carte dinner I ate ... But again, stray cats ate on the next table, the two plates left behind by two tourists had left before the time, did not seem to enjoy their meal! * No variety in brevages, lemonade, he did not know, hot chocolate, either, and orange juice (juice of one site) and does not even look like not even taste the orange juice. * The discount travel site informed us that there were 2 hrs bus from the airport to the site, had much the road was 2:45 ET attroce, but mostly, importantly, we were the only hotel in almost 3hrs drive! No neighbors! Except few Cubans who hide at one end or the other of the beach ... At left, a family houses literally outside under a shelter of tree and plastic bag 6'X6 '! And right, 5-6 Cuban fishing and whistling after girls and tourists!): * No background on the site, several did not feel like smiling, it looked almost destitute with food, vs. vs. immaginez, I lost 5 lbs so I have not eaten my fill and believe me, I'm not picky about the food! ... * Dirty Pool * Staff smiling and very little to the unavailability of simple self-service beverage product machine, we drank something that made the meal tjrs. dessert .........! Not mucho rapido in Cuba, I know, but there ... Let us at least serve us well ns! * You imagine, we embarraient servers to outside the buffet restaurant, even though the restaurant was NOT full, he anchored outside or that there were 50 million mosquitoes devour you all suddenly flood (I've seen people eaten by mosquitoes as I have never seen in my life there!). * The disco was squarely at the other end of the site, no lighting and not attend either, very pocket ... * No reception on arrival tourists! * Nothing to sell to the small store, not a film for the camera, no card game to pass the time, not much for grignottines (especially for the food infable) ... * Difficulty having toilet paper, it seemed downright rationed on this side and was well chaint! lolll "pun not funny at all in the back"! * It announces a "training room" PHEW! ! I thought I could train there every day, I went there one time! The room is two rooms that join open at all times, it could, the equipment is out of date and does not work , 4 cardio machines, two of removed altogether and not 100% functional and two others connected but not functioning, with perforated seat and infests the heart get up to hit or even sit on it! And the multi weight machine, totally coroser, oily and also infests the worst gym I've seen in my life, even ethipiens must be better organized than them ... * No activity to do there, apart Dolphins at $ 150 and below (I did 2 times already dolphins ds other trips) and a visit from 2 hrs ds + village near, with 1 hr bus and go back 1hr! When you did 3hrs to come to this misery and you know that you will have to do another three to return, you do not just taste. These are the only two possible activity! * Well I'll stop, otherwise! Needless to say I recommend it to anyone and never in my life, I'd stay here, too bad though, the beach is so wonderful! * SUMMARY: The worst travel money in my life ! This is a 2 1/2 * to the MAX! But I had read many negative comments about bcp this hotel, I tjrs of research before buying, this time, the pictures of the beach I had really charmed and I was thinking it should not be so bad, but YES, was so bad ...

Positive :

The complex is located directly on a beautiful beach and intimate. The bay is shallow which allows you to walk far enough into the water and go snorkeling close by borrowing equipment from the hotel. For its food is very good, although redundant. Of course, one should not expect much variety in Cuba. Never forget that there is an embargo and that tourists were still the best products on the island! The staff is really friendly, the rooms contain all the essentials and are very clean. I enjoyed the spectacle of Afro-Cuban dance during my trip to Las Tunas. Catamaran outings are really incredible, but you have to love the thrill and showers of salt water! Also, if you want to chill, this is really the place since there is no other complex in the vicinity. There is not too much traffic on the beach, such as Varadero. Finally, you must try the massages and lobster. Both are small pleasures absolutely delicious! Personally, I knew what to expect when going in Covarrubias (it is a 3 star) and I have not been disappointed with my stay.

Negative :

Well, the most annoying aspect is that the hotel is located 2 to 3 hours from the airport. Since the road is really in bad shape, the journey can be painful for those looking for more comfort. The second major inconveniant is the presence of mosquitoes in the evening (it feels like in Quebec in July!). Well, it's not that can ruin a vacation, but it is to predict. Obviously, we must not forget that the nearest village is 1 hour drive and that the complex is surrounded by fields and groves. In other words, if you are visiting the area, he must pay the taxi or pay for trips. Finally, there is only one restaurant at a map and it is almost impossible to book because the officer is just too early in the morning. Moreover, the a la carte restaurant is located at the beach, so it closes when it's not very nice. In short, this is a lovely place for a discount travel, but I suggest you do not pay more than $ 900 per person for this site.

Difficult thing to have positive feedback on this hotel.Je can say that water is beautiful, the rooms are big enough place locations (Swimming pool) are very well

Negative :

but the buffet is really very very ordinary, the activitees nocture are restrainte after 22 hours, locations far removed we can not go out, the a la carte restaurant is on the sea but is not covered glass and then very often close because of wind. the morning break at the beach is very very limited, often lacking food. The beach is often poorly poorly maintained clean. Several people including myself have even étét bite at night by mosquitoes and?? , The sheets were not changed has less. apply. water and public toilets on site are inadequate. So to sum up the hotel offers a very poor service
