Positive :

A beautiful hotel with interior and exterior, clean, nice pools, nice enough staff, especially with a small gift or a peso. Water amazing, beautiful weather.

Negative :

Rude tourists who did not respect the prohibitions (eg no smoking in the pool), Cubans still working here in a bad mood, especially in the office of exchange.

Positive :

Beautiful vegetation on the site very nice to walk between the bungalows. Beautiful wide beach and sea very beautiful turquoise clear water and when ensoleillé.Beaucoup of palapas and chairs on the beach and pools.

Negative :

Attitude of the servers. Talk to each other and expect to finish before you speak as if you disturbed them. The cleanliness is very poor and everything is broken in Cuba ... On 6 lifts, there were only one that worked. Cockroaches in the room and the stairs of the hotel ... DISGUSTING ..... Many birds and cats near the buffets and food. It lacked towels for the beach. They really have nothing to eat in this country. It's fine rum and cigars, but there are limits. The hotel, according to many is one of the most beautiful Varadero ... HAHAHA he is so old that I give it a 2 star and a half. Mold at the pool and the rooms smell very strong moisture.

Positive :

we had a wonderful trip. the staff is warm and the catamaran was great activity, also dinner on the island. very clean plenty of sunbeds at the beach and almost no bugs that could scare me. the room was well. Sunwing representative was wonderful, friendly, smiling and taking their time to help. j loved my first trip back and jy.

Negative :

we have not had a chance to Register to the a la carte restaurants. by cons of another yes. we go there when there were computer problems. but not so serious, the buffet was great. many of the staff speak French but not the main (home) only. therefore had to wait that she returned to work on issues.

Positive :

We went to celebrate 18 years of our daughters, and c was great for them. A hotel or young people meet and come together in the evening. Different themes every night, discos different every night and the whole gang of young people move to the same disco. Our girls loved the mothers and we found our account. A beautiful beach, palapas mass. Clean rooms. I recommend it to young people who want to party.

Negative :

Maybe the food ... but we expect it is in Cuba. Many mosquitoes at night.

Positive :

First visit to this hotel ... Surely we will return! Staff score of 100% ... We had the opportunity to stay at the hotel overlooking the sea and in a bungalow very near the sea ... Our choice of the bungalow! The food excellent - it lacks a little variety but always manages to fill your plate with rim ... Watch out for desserts = weight gain potential! Ice cream "divine" ... The beach is beautiful: little waves no coral, no algae and jellyfish! The clear water ... Trips by catamaran and pedal! YES! Chairs and palapas for everyone at will! Do not miss the sunset!!!!!!

Negative :

Activities "shows" should be a bit more varied (always the same dancers) ... Against the show by the magician has not missed! Please note we have had to live with the "Over Booking": we have not been asked at the beginning of the bungalow ... after only two nights at the hotel! If you like trekking bikes ... Here the bikes are a little older and attention to punctures ... hiking to the village is worth a look!

Positive :

The whole site is very well kept and secured by staff assigned exclusively to monitor the beach.

Negative :

The door to the corridor is poorly soundproofed, so that means the return of the night revelers.

Positive :

The staff is really wonderful. Warm and friendly. The food was really excellent .. and quantity! The beach ... is incredible! Clean and beautiful. The animation pleasant. The complex is really clean and safe. I loved it.

Negative :

The rooms are standard in the bungalows. Bathroom has some mold, but it seems that it is normal for this region and age of the hotel. The mattress was very uncomfortable ... I'd finished! There are traps out near restaurants (probably sewers) that produce very unpleasant odors. I found the reception staff was uninformed and did not say the same thing.

Positive :

Very nice holiday. We stayed in a bungalow near a gateway to access the beach. The cleaning lady was not beautiful swans or other, but the maintenance was done daily and the fridge was filled every day too. The beach is beautiful, white sand, turquoise water, I took advantage of mass, has been the pool the day we arrived and only water was very cloudy. Chairs in adequate amounts and in the first row of palapas. We had a Cuban place where we wanted. We went to Varadera bus has two floors. The best drinks (also more varieties) and the best coffee in the lobby bar. We did one excursion or catamaran: beautiful day, snorkeling: it's wonderful what we can discover deep in water, bathing and dinner Cayo Largo and then swim with dolphins: c ' is really too short with them, but very beautiful picture. Lots of free activities on the beach: aerobics, dance, pedalo, sailing, banana, etc. as well as evening entertainment at the hotel, unfortunately we missed the best with costumed dancers. The little drinks especially the Miami Bays are delicious. The a la carte restaurants: Italian and Creole was excellent. The pesos are welcome everywhere we go. The buffet staff came to greet us with a big smile in the morning and evening so that they may be in their section.

Negative :

I have had problems opening the safety deposit box in my room. The buffet, pasta and chicken most of the week, breakfast good, I brought my peanut butter. My daughter and I, we had brought plenty of gift bags for the maid but never a word of thanks. I think she would have preferred pesos ... In the late afternoon, there is no paper in the bathroom of the hotel. At the hotel bar, men are not too by smiling against the ladies are.
