Positive :

The hotel is very good, very clean. Pleasantly surprised by the room. Comfortable bed, air conditioning that worked very well, hot water, nice bathroom. For a 3 star, it was great. Rental with sea view for all rooms, it's great. The beach is small but beautiful with dark corners, free catamaran, pedal boats, kayaks, all free. In addition, the beach is quiet, no music, quiet. We hear only the sound of the sea Great for those who love snorkeling and a little vague. I was not looking for a long white sand beach, but if that's what you need, do not go to Bucanero, you will be disappointed.

Negative :

Since 1980, I made eight trips to Cuba, in different parts of the country. Since a few years, the Cuban personnel has changed a lot. They are now jaded tourists, I noticed the difference. They are certainly smiling but few of them will seek to provide a service beyond the minimum required (value added). Bar staff is the best. But in terms of the dining room is very plain. They are dragging their feet, they have no incentive to performance. I understand, I do not criticize them. It is a myth, the Cuban happy always smiling which makes the good life! They lack everything and they too would like access to consumer goods, they too would like to travel! They are stuck in a regime that allows no freedom. I spoke with several of them, and believe me, this is not jojo. For the buffet as often everywhere in Cuba, very repetitive. Two weeks of this regimen, it would be difficult. 1 week was sufficient. No variety what we eat but still has good taste. Toaster that operates slower (you must pass the bread three times before it is toasted) bread knife disappeared, only a knife to the hotel. After his disappearance, we have not seen any. These are details, but show a letting go ... Does a hotel, even if it's only a 3 star, there should be no more than a bread knife? Can not they do not repair the toaster? I want to believe that we are in Cuba, they have a slower pace of life, ... etc.. but a little more efficiency, frankly, it does not hurt in a service business.

Positive :

All rooms face the sea service is excellent, the rooms and throughout the hotel are magnificent. Pourle calm tranquility this hotel is top No.1 ... the views from everywhere in the hotel are amazing with spectacular sunsets.

Negative :

No sandy beach. Unfortunately they suffered two hurricanes wildly destructible which led many rock and broken on the tiny beach couraux offered. In a few years (sil no d, another hurricane) they have finished picking up rocks and it will be fine. Otherwise BRING WATER SHOES AND YOU BEWARE! Several people were injured when entering the water but after 15feet you have enough water to swim.

Positive :

Near Santiago, it is easy to get there to visit this city where one is well received by Cubans. All rooms have sea view and the scenery is beautiful. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The service can be slow but we are on holiday then you have all the time. Sunwing service is really good. Snorkeling to do for fans

Negative :

Do not rely on pictures of the hotel ... there is no bar in the pool! Do not book two weeks because you will quickly around the small beach and rocks affect swimming in the sea Bring shoes! The buffet is very similar from one meal to another. Little choice and sometimes cold or undercooked. Eat well at breakfast is excellent. Bring your beach towel because it will perhaps not dispobible upon arrival.

Positive :

Good value for a 3 star less than $ 600 / wk. ! Beautiful scenery and wide range of outputs to be in the region, although the beaches in southeastern Cuba are generally of poor quality. ROOM: simple, but clean and never failed to warm water. All rooms have sea views BEACH: No disappointment on this side, we knew from before she was tiny, rocky (shoes required for swimming, lots of sea urchins)! Extra for snorkeling from shore. SWIMMING: Clean and well located, centered on the site. Beautiful sea views BUFFET: limited and repetitive, but generally quite good! STAFF: Particularly friendly and approachable (despite some exceptions!). BAR: Good service, no waiting, cheerful staff. EXCURSIONS: City of Greater Santiago Piedra and not to be missed. Catamaran and interesting riding in was worth it. WEATHER: Sunny day after day, no rain for two weeks ... We would definitely go back, at the same price!

Negative :

The reservation system (horseback riding, motorcycle, bicycle, excursions, etc..) Is poor, it is difficult to find the right person who should be contacted (obvious lack of organization and wills). Shuttle announced in the brochure from the hotel and the town is nonexistent! Solution: rent a car or a motorcycle and, in advance! Careful as to the hotel, no credit cards accepted; allow plenty of money on you.

Positive :

Value: EXCELLENT! I'm really surprised to read negative comments about this hotel ... This is a 3 star hotel and we obtain a nominal price. I would go back immediately! HOUSE: No problem with water or electricity, as others seem to mention it. This must be intermittent ... Glistening like no one in nine, but clean. Me, my preference. BEACH: No disappointment on this side because we knew before leaving that it was small and rocky! Find out before you leave! We went for snorkeling and loved it. Sometimes, there are jellyfish. So, advice to those who have an allergy to these critters, including me, but not my spouse ... POOL: Very well located, centered on the site and the bar right next 24 hours. Beautiful sea views and wonderful sunsets. What could be better! Many activities around the pool. Buffet: We ate very well there. The menu was not gargantuan, but you could find everything and it was excellent. Many fruits and vegetables. The staff was very friendly and smiling. I made several calls to Canada and I've never had any communication problems. The animation team is amazing and the performances are great! Do not miss the water ballet. CLIMBING THE MOUNTAIN: Do not miss this tour. Meet with Julio. It is extraordinary. UNFORGETTABLE. Thrills guaranteed. And it's free ... At 9:30 every morning. This deserves a tip to the guide ... CITY OF SANTIAGO: Magnificent. We must visit it without fault. BAR: Open 24 hours, no waiting, cheerful staff and excellent drinks, especially pinacolada. WEATHER: Sunny day after day, no clouds on the horizon ... SERVICES: One hour massage for 9 pesos. Free braids. We met great people and we had fun with them during this week. Holidays are like our mood. We were glad when the holiday was fantatisques ...

Negative :

At the hotel, they do not accept any credit card. So, make extra cash on you. We took the tour: snorkeling and visiting the city of Santiago. The sea is very rough. So to avoid for those who get seasick In addition, there are more fish on the beach from the hotel to the tour. No activity on the boat whose browse time is approximately 3-4 hours ... The a la carte restaurant is not worth a visit ... We eat at the buffet ... more
