Positive :

The weather was good.

Negative :

For all a la carte restaurants, we felt compelled to eat as soon as possible. The food was ordinary. Be careful about the trips, make inquiries as to whether all that is included in the visit to be respected.

Positive :

Very nice site well done. The beach is beautiful and the sea is beautiful. And more varied entertainment including a pool are available with a quieter bar. The a la carte restaurants are very good and the service is very good. In general people are friendly and welcoming. The biggest irritant is that we had to take our shower in cold water every day. Hot water was available between 9:30 am and after 16h and 21h (not practical if one wants to enjoy our day at the beach or pool.

Negative :

Very beautiful long beach but only one sanitary system available and one end only. The bins are also very few and people throw their garbage on the ground. The service for cooking meat and fish buffet is way too slow but the cooks are very nice. The system for beach towels is very bad and the hours are too short.

Positive :

We just returned from the NH and we are delighted. We were a family of 4 (children 11 and 6). The beach is wide and well maintained, there is room in droves to be either near the bar, restaurant, golf Volleyball or a little behind. The site is beautiful and very large (you have to like walk) Our room was clean and we had a large window that opens onto the sea (block 21). Side food, for breakfast, it rules, there is everything ... In the evening, I recommend the a la carte restaurants. The Cuban is for me the best. (Book your restaurant when you have your room number, do not wait until tomorrow ...) If you do not have a reservation, some convertible pesos and there will surely have a place for you. The shows are good and the music is good. I recommend it for 4 to $ 3,000 in Christmas seasons from Montreal, this is a good price. By the way, Eve buffet is WONDERFUL.

Negative :

At noon, if we stay on the beach you have loving, chicken, fish and squid, otherwise there is the eternal Hamberger and hot dogs.

Positive :

Very nice site. The rooms are large and very clean. The pools are fantistiques.

Negative :

The buffets offer little choice and always the same every day. What about the quality of choices .... not much! This is not to choose the destination for holiday dining. Of all the trips I made in the south (13), the NH Krystale offers the worst quality in food. If the quality of food was added to the quality of the site, it would be a great destination.

Positive :

I picked this hotel where I went when it was called the El Senador and whose owners were then Canadian. So I found the same beautiful beach and the same buildings and swimming pools. Another advantage is the very short distance from the airport to the hotel whose new owners are a British company.

Negative :

I noticed a major decline in the quality of food especially at the buffet. Always the same thing and it's not very good. Although the complex has not 10 years, some of the buildings appear to have 20 more. When I arrived, I u wait five hours to have my room. When I finally got it, I was obliged to request another. Imagine. No soap, two on a bed was not made, an old sock on a commendam, a wine glass on another almost empty dresser, a safety deposit box was not working and the mini fridge was broken. When I complained at the reception, other passengers on the same flight also complained to some of the same reasons and another, that the lack of hot water. The staff does its best but the lack of rigorous maintenance of établlissement fact that the former El Senador does not deserve its 4 star more. Avoid trips. They are very expensive for what it worth and enjoy the sun and more heat. This, at least, was not degraded ....

Positive :

Cubans like to say hello and try to understand us. Many speak French. The rooms (continued) Emperador side are large and there is lots of storage. The site is very large but it is done on foot. The sand is beautiful all white and soft, almost flour. Buffet in there hot and fresh bread every day. Lunches are good and there's peanut butter. The Cuban restaurant is open 24 hours and you can eat poutine. The a la carte restaurant are good. Beware, the restaurant vip men should be in long pants. Behind the craft market that Cuban is a small bar and the evening there's a Cuban makes an excellent show, like the movie Cocktail with Tom Cruise. All talk and Quebec hello, we pass a good time together. For this hotel for traveling with Air Transat really much extra. Emperador side, 5 a la carte restaurant, room fridge full of juice, liquor and beer.

Negative :

In general the site is nice but a little withers ... A little paint would help with the decor. There are a lot of seaweed on the beach. Vacationers will be left by much, what a shame ... Unfortunately the spa and all the fountains were not running. On the seaside it blew tremendously. About 9 days, there were only two days of full sun. It was still cloudy the rest of the time. Activities on the water was always given because of strong winds. Nouriture side is rather plain ... Always the same thing every day ... Fruits are good through and vegetables are full of water ... Meat, 1 in 2 is hard. The desserts are always the same, 4 out of cupcakes or ice cream (very soft). The desserts are at the same restaurant a la carte vriment not original. Lagoons it smells a time of 2. Wastewater is discharged directly into the sea, what a disaster! Cubans are in no hurry to open the bank and other service at this time. We must wait 20 to 30 minutes to several occasion.

Positive :

In terms of rooms and the site was very bien.Quand the tide was out we had a beautiful beach otherwise not possible to intall it. I liked the pre-registration at the hotel. We did not have to wait long.

Negative :

No beach if the tide is high. If you gave you the tip you could expect to have good service at the food cooks préparaientt, if you do not let your food they gave to the man who gave him anything. No variety at the buffet (I must say I'm not usually difficult) could still survivient. Food to a la carte restaurants was very ordinary (except Steak House and Italian where it was better). For lobsters because they must pass to $ 22.00 CUC is way too expensive. I tried but I do not go back. Luckily I did not pay much. Staff very cold except a few individuals.
