The rooms are spacious villas. Even with two children, we have not felt like to walk on. They are clean. By cons, there is very little storage space. In general, staff and off-off reception is very nice restaurant. The maid was very nice (and greatly enjoyed our gifts, including those for children) and many gardeners have offered flowers or small animals with braided palm leaves. The children loved! For shopping, there is a great little local art market about 10 minutes walk. Lots of choices. Regarding the beach, there are plenty of algae to about one meter after the entry into the water. So no real opportunity to swim very far. By cons, if you go to the beach of Atlantico, right, she's beautiful (and as the beaches are public in Cuba, there is no problem to visit a different beach.) Also, there is no big waves because there is a sandbar not far. Very safe for children but less fun if you like jumping the waves. Finally, the site is a bit dated but very clean.

This was our third trip to Cuba, so I knew what to expect in terms of food. But this was by far the worst place for this purpose. I urge you to make pasta as often as possible. The rest is really not very good and recycled from one meal to another (like in the evenings and even flat but cold the next day afternoon). Also, this is the worst service I have experienced. Then travel to other Cubans had seemed friendly and smiling, this time it was very difficult to get service at the reception as well as restaurants (especially buffets 2). They "do not care" of us altogether. Good luck if you want one you resserve water in your glass! Some people who traveled to Cuba for the first time would not come back because of this type of attitude. I had to explain that I believe this was an exception and that the other times we got a much better service. Also, there is no set policy. You will get a service or not depending on the employee who you fall. For example, we had to start smoking again three times with three different employees, before obtaining a second room key. Finally, do not send your child in the kids club. I saw an employee leave the group alone on the beach at the water's edge ... and mini-disco, she sat foot on a table without any way to animate ... I am a former host of camp, I was not impressed!
