The vacation was great. The staff nice, friendly, attentive, not intrusive but tip from. My room and the balcony were clean and ok. The whole hotel area was although already somewhat older, but in a good, well maintained condition, clean and tidy. The drinks were okay and at the lobby bar and bar on the 9. floor very good. The food was for cuban standards ok. From time to time somewhat monotonous, the ice and the cakes but great. I would this hotel again …  read hotel review

This hotel belongs to the gran caribe group, which under only cuban management run. The manager has confessed a monthly income of about circa 25 Euro.

Of course are smaller examples immense. Unfortunately, in terms of maintenance or ongoing reorganisation, due to chronic lack …  read hotel review

Never again! If you treat the staff with the feast to see, but you didn't have more space in the dining room and if a room are offered, in which i was not even my ärgensten enemy would, then i can only say: under all would! Not worth a cent! read hotel review

Hotel with extraordinary drawbacks.

The hotel you can only pull off. There is nothing even repaired. A lift since two years ago. Elevators on days, until a serviceunternehmen comes. Older guests must stairs up to the example 6. floor. Ceiling tiles were loose. The east wing has been waiting two years for a renovation of the rooms. The villas are for years not been renovated. Many with mold infested. The pool by the villas are already not refilled. Mainly canadians, at the pool bar rumrandalieren, mainly from 02:00 a. m. until the early morning. The hotel's security service will, or can not prevail. ... Hotel management did nothing about it. German were hardly there, as the food is a disaster, and the condition desolat is. This is the time with all hotels the gran caribe group be the case. read hotel review

    Mariposa = good ; Bamboo= bad; el sitio = bad Las dalias (dining room, buffet) = bad, selection of food left a lot to be desired. 3 weeks fungal-and-cream soup, 3 weeks in addition alternately either chicken/vegetable soup. 1 sometimes there was black bean soup (national). Only two open barbeque platter with only one chef manned (long queue). For noodles saute a chef with not appetizing pans. Food luke warm. Despite peak season and thus higher price little staff. Tables were not cleared quickly and newly set again. 1 even table cleared and set. Dining room dirty. Down at the floor-to-ceiling windows of bird droppings. In the 3 weeks not removed. Bars okay. Beer was it only at the pool bar, beach bar and roofbar in 9. floor. At the lobby bar was no beer. Toilets lobby/lobby bar is a disaster.

We are with scepticism to this hotel gone because of various reviews on the internet. But we were very surprised what we found. For us it was a great vacation and we will go to this hotel again. It was from the morning until the evening always cleaned on every corner. Unfortunately the tourists at the beach very lazy, time and the plastic cup into the trash bin, but keep everything at the beach are. So it was by the pool, everything is left. The behavior of the canadians leaves much to be desired. Are very noisy and behave next ... to it. Of decency no trace. We had a room at the back the don quixote restaurant and the was very quiet and nice. The rooms are renovated and big. The staff is also always cooperative. If you have a shower gel or similar wasted has, you have been very pleased. We only have good experience with the staff made. They were always nice and not only then if we tipped. You shouldn't forget the Cuba a poor country and the people 20,- Euro earn in a month. The motivation is not the greatest, is understandable, but they put in the effort. With the attitude of the canadians would also relatively quickly the collar burst. We once had to move, since our canadian neighbors could no longer bear. In the absolute dilirium state of intoxication and drugs-this even the balcony furniture from the balcony in the garden tossed. We called front desk, there was a security and care. We then in the morning got an other room, because we in this room no longer want to stay. As mentioned, the attitude of the canadians for us was shocking. Thank god we were in the low season, the rather quiet and the hotel also only 1 third was occupied. Thus we could a very quiet vacation experience. Many tourists came from the neighboring hotel in Villa Cuba. This told us of terrible food and mold in rooms. This we had in the hotel not. We also saw rooms in the front part looked at. These were piecemeal painted and renovated. Conclusion the food is the only fault, what we have to report. It's not seasoned and lukewarm. Noisy guide we knew the cubans it not differently and lukewarm food and the spices were missing. However it was clean and we had for every meal time fresh napkins and tablecloths. I don't know, where dirty tablecloths to find. Perhaps at the end of the meal time. We were always at 20 o'clock food and everything was okay. The animation was good as well. Always funny games by the pool, dancing classes or beach volleyball. Really good. Some have on the cuban music at the beach feel disturbed. We pleasant and nice thought. This ran from 10 to 13 o'clock. Sometimes in the afternoon but rather rare. Cuba is worth a trip and we are also drove, to Havanna and Matanzas, us country and people looked at. What all of us should be doing, because we live in abundance and moaning about much. The cubans live in a communist regime, get food only after bons and it was missing at all basic things. Despite all laugh you and joie de vivre. We really liked this. read hotel review
