Positive :

Very nice weather, wall to wall sunshine. The decor was very different from what we had known in Cuba (infinite beach ...) but we enjoyed the scenery, the night crabs, iguanas on the day, diving in the cove APHNE (lots of fish ) that serves as a beach (bring beach shoes), nice gentle wave and the water is clear although there are many roche.La grilled food from the beach is very good, fresh grilled fish on the plate at all day & a meat (chicken or pork), fried vegetables & floods. Nice view to the pool that is large enough. Good animation every night and we had some party at the disco (which is on the beach open) the very fun! We had a room on the second floor (6th buildings) very nice and clean, all overlooking the sea is in fact the excursion boat, APHNE, dinner and 2hr visit to Santiago in the same day it was good and cheap , 2hrs in Santiago is enough.

Negative :

The evening buffet is limited and repetitive. Do not expect to eat pasta, we got a once in seven days. The fish was dry, rice and stew, soup is good. 4.5 The first day is OK but we do not remain there two weeks and it is not difficiles.Le la carte restaurant is not much better. If you paid around $ 600. 1 week, that's fine, go for the sun, drinks and food for days and you will not regret pas.Ce is well with the evening buffet is that you are back with all three pounds lighter!!

Positive :

No snow. Most co-travelers are friendly. It's hot. Most employees are friendly and sympatic. Always something to drink ....:)) Not always what you want, but good. The rooms are clean. The efficient air conditioning. The site is wonderful: the turquoise sea, beautiful perfect for diving. abundant tropical fish. Chicken and fish are good at the beach.

Negative :

Except that I do not dive. Major investments are required to restore this hotel to level. The pub offers us the shot to the bow, but I have not seen. We are offered the catamaran, but all week, it was broken .... The tiny beach is littered with cigarette butts, but mostly rocks and pebbles. Therefore, careful feet, falls and cuts; beach shoes are not an option. In Cuba, the food is often excellent, but this is serious. It not starve, period. La carte restaurant rotten. They served a buffet with a piece of meat chosen in advance. Avoid the steak at all costs, no person has this week could have a piece of meat rare or even pink. It was arch-cooked and cooked-frozen, the worst steak of my life. The chicken turned out to be turkey. The lobster is very good, but at $ 30 Canadian, you will have better and cheaper elsewhere. It's also not counting the errors of booking. Friends gathered with the Steak .... instead of shrimp. A woman nearby has been forced to seek its food from the buffet itself to the next room and returned with his plate to accompany her husband. The first night was like red wine Sangria. Then there's the lame dog chico'''' very nice animal that colors the place and who walks everywhere, including and especially in the dining room. We love all animals, but if he was excluded from the dining room, it would be better ... it would also be less severe if he had not chip. The lunches are a big problem: The coffee machine was defective 3 days on 7. The toaster painfully slow. But there's Bacon ...... except that there is no meat after. The ham is not strong. The rooms: No washcloth. one pillow, one sheet. Most bartenders are very good, but there are not that deserve a kick in the ass. Buy cigarettes sometimes becomes complicated, we must seek the good of requisition to home, back to the bar to have its cloppes. Cuba is a paradise for smokers. Unfortunately this hotel is not the paradise of ashtrays. butts are all over the floor. The club package are a haven for drinkers, but this place is not paradise for trash. It drags everywhere. The guy who picks up a broom and a well is valiant, but he does not dustpan. Since the hurricane, I do not know when. The Hotel has suffered. the filter pools have problems, I think. The second day of our presence, the wading pool was turning green. a kid was the traveler's, like many of us. They emptied the patageuse, to clean and fill. Two days after this is the big pool that worried me. No pool, no beach .... Lower, suggesting a puisart beyond a blackish cast. Remains that one can visit the city ......... If you do not pay a guide about $ 35 Canadian for you around, you're dead .... HARASSMENT, HARASSMENT, HARASSMENT, HARASSMENT, HARASSMENT. You are just disembarked from a taxi, you are poutine'' guides'' and gulls. They each have their own corner. They will follow you relentlessly until the interior; on the terrace of Gran Hotel, they know the servers. They follow you into the bank. He know the type at the counter know how much you change. Disgusted you pay, you go back or take a taxi, the hotel management. It seems that it's not as bad at night. You are happy to be back at the hotel and you find almost nice old age of 70 who walks with a Cuban girl 15 years old will tell you it's okay because he took leave of the mother the girl! We leave, therefore, aside retirees (plural) who walk around with Mickey Mouse watches and other trinkets to children. The above, I thought Cuba was some decency, but now I feel that this will go degenerating. I must say: We still had fun with other Quebecers, which has saved our vacation. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL OR TO THE PEOPLE SERIOUS OR A TRAVEL AGENCY. It's cheap and it is cheap.

Positive :

Ideal temperature, quiet place to rest for good. Simple but good food. Courteous staff. Exceptional landscape. Fun show. BBQ on the beach interesting, beautiful option. Price / quality very good ($ 670).

Negative :

Sometimes breaking water. Cleaning that can be made on the beach and a reorganization of the boats (trade up). Greater diversity to the menu would be welcome. Orange juice and the great lunch.

Perfect place for nature lovers, there is a small oasis near the beach!

Positive :

Nice hotel. Nature is beautiful. The rooms are well located (sea view) and they are very clean. Diving in Apne, to do. I also liked the catamaran. The specatacles were fine. The staff is very nice. Good value for money. Calm and quiet. Very well organized excursions.

Negative :

Tiny and very rocky beach. (It takes shoes to go into the sea). The buffet is very limited. Do not forget that this is a 3 star. So you should not expect a 4 or 5 stars.

Positive :

Very good price / quality ratio. Do not pay more than $ 600.00 per person. There is a buffet with very limited but still enough to put in their mouths. Good fish, hamburger and hot dog. Very good breakfast. All rooms overlooking the sea! Bring your beach towels. Will wait a few days after those of the hotel. Micro-rocky beach and rocky. Excellent for diving and snorkeling. Moreover, it is this aspect that made us choose this hotel and we were not disappointed. Staff very decent especially the dining room with Dioly! Small hotel with 200 rooms, so not many people around. Always beach chairs available. Took the tour of the Piedra Grande (25.00 convertible pesos per person) with our excellent guide Raphael. Also the one-day visit to Santiago with wonderful seafood dinner (50.00 convertible pesos per person) with our excellent guide Manuel. Visit included the fortress of Santiago very interesting. Walking through the city is very safe (police everywhere). The locals are very friendly. Bring plenty of cash for debit and credit cards are not accepted. Change your money at the hotel's excellent rate of 12%. (Early March) It rained 2:01 tonight. Beautiful sunset. Go see the beach at night with a lamp near the course to see dozens of large crabs came down from the mountains to lay their eggs. Hallucinating! Many iguanas, lizards, greckos, birds and Jutias (cute little rodents!) Change of scenery as located in the Sierra Maestra mountain range. Bring clothes, perfumes, body care, etc. ... for employees (remember the cooks and everyone we see less, not just the maids and bartenders!). Note that tap water is drinkable. Evening entertainment ok but nothing more. Very nice hosts. In short, we had a great relaxing week.

Negative :

Beach: Bring water shoes (no sandals only). Bar: order two drinks at once! (Try the special Bucanero! Yum!) Vegetarian: book elsewhere ... Disco: not a big party. If you want action, book elsewhere ... Not really animated in the day. Book trips early.

Club Bucanero, from 21 to 28 February 2008. We did not expect more we read on this site! A jump of 50 degrees between Montreal and Santiago, a little more moisture, 26 to 28 degrees Celsius both in the water than in air. This is a wonderful wild rocky landscape, a small beach surrounded by rocky volcanic slopes with a beach bar and grill for lunch, a turquoise blue ocean full of stones because the sand was washed away by the last hurricane of 2004 damaged a cliff and not redone throughout the 8 or 9 stone buildings, all with ocean view room. Different pictures can enlighten you more on the site. For swimming there is fortunately a beautiful, large and clean swimming pool in the center of the complex has raised the ocean, lending the restaurant - cafeteria and bar for 24 hours in theory because the ocean (26 Celsius) you need your teeth or shoes sailors. This is a 3 star for service but hotel rooms are pretty and the air conditioning is functional but a very loud noise. Everywhere we see the lack of resources to maintain or even if it's going to clean. Mediocre food but we always find something edible! Always grill the fish to the beach bar and pork or chicken salads etc. .... and you do not have to dress for dinner. You can rent a moped has two places to 16 CUC per day or a small 4 x 4 Subaru convertible for 75 CUC per day to visit the neighborhood or the city of Santiago (must be able to get used to extreme poverty and représentents of the underground economy growing if you leave the resort). Other options offer excursions payable to you if necessary!

Negative :

If the spring has operated at full capacity it would be difficult to find a place under the sun (a shadow) or the table of the restaurant. (There is only room for 40 or 50 tables, including those outside of the cliff, a single range of 20 to 30 seats on chaise lounge, a children's pool, a larger one for water polo, volleyball in water etc.. to 9 buildings with 28 rooms each of which three are the prey of mold in a state of semi-abandonment)
