I would also a second time I have stayed at this beautiful grounds spend my holiday want. Cuba is, if you will leave the whole hotel-, a very simple and poor country. Forget that most if you start to complain. But the people there were very satisfied with what they have. Opens the eyes, if you spend time outside the hotel premises. They then close again and compare your pure luxury with the shabbiness of the Cubans. Then you know what I mean. …  read hotel review

It is now two weeks ago when I in the hotel be live was... I have already experienced and seen from the world (Developing countries with three star hotels).

I booked this hotel now 2. times and my stay was just great. My daughter and i felt very comfortable. We had a very nice large room and our roxana has kept super clean. The staff was just great, very nice and friendly and always ready for fun. The themenresturant are very nice and the food is very delicious. The beach is beautiful and the water was just brilliant. I will certainly stay in this hotel again. You must also know, that the hotel Cuba not comparable with those from Germany compare and the Cuba a very poor country, but ... with very nice and lovely people. And the culture and the island worth seeing. I was now the 7 times on Cuba and i would again and again gladly. read hotel review

Our expectations of the Cuba-holiday were fully met. We were traveling with our adult sons. The live in Cuba of course you could not Germany compare, but the cubans radiances despite their many problems in the country in such local, there can we spoiled german an example to take. The cubans are always friendly, outgoing and helpful (also without tips), but not intrusive. We stayed at this holiday very much, with the country and people very good experience. Despite the well-known economy scarcity in Cuba, try the hotel, their guest's stay as pleasant as possible. If you Tennis want to ... play, should absolutely balls to carry forward. Small attentions (pens or sweets) conjure a radiation in the eyes of the small and large and were gratefully accepted. For us it was a perfect holiday. read hotel review

For Cuba and the hotel is very good i forgive. In Europa you could have different expectations. Everyone should travellers know. The hotel can i for singls recommend. Was not a day alone. Many interesting people from all over the world. To the locals in the place, i have little concentrated. The i have met, were very friendly, nice and helpful. The hotel is like a small tip, straight, if one a desire expressed. Tourists like i still give, if your on Cuba is, take clothes with, the would leave out want (clothes, electronics, cosmetics).

    Distance from airport about half an hour. The shopping center in Varadero is not really recommended since it was relatively expensive. Prefer a trip to Havanna make (about 2 hours by bus) as there is favorable souvenires. Also the trip with the catamaran is recommendable on the island Cayo Blanco. A dream there. Butterfly was also very beautifully only unfortunately sad as they are kept in this small dirty water...

    After the hotel relatively middle of the peninsula, is both the port, and the next town Varadero and the shopping center easily accessible.

    The hotel has a main restaurant (buffet) at which every day the same food (cold, partly inedible) gave. The three other restaurants a la carte could only once a week can be visited. Here there was from week to week a geschmacksunterschied. In the italian restaurant was there in the first week very good and in the 2. week barely edible. Otherwise these restaurants only a small alternation dar. Cocktails there in the restaurants no, or only in one of them and the only, if it was mint gave... (Mojito) - all non-alcoholic drinks were so far only without ice cubes drinkable, or water and Cola not at all, because these from the chlorinated tap water was mixed.

    Entertainment on the beach was hardly present. The evening show was in order, however, was the vorabendprogramm much too loud, so it was hardly possible to talk.

On the complaint, that in our first room the tv broken is, because the cable demolished heraushing, they told us' that cannot be the case at all, this is not true '. The majority of the staff could speak english, so the communication a problem. With the help of the tour operator was a room change possible without a problem.

    The rooms themselves were other in order. But unfortunately filthy, run down, moldy and worn. The maids' cleaning ' only superficially, or to blame the dirt from left to right. For tips you can only get swans from dirty, löchrigen, or wet towels. The putzleistung could thus with tips not be improved. In our first room the air conditioning was unfortunately not adjustable, so one from outside (30 °c) in a room with about 15 °c came. These improved but in the 2. room, where at least a regulation the air conditioner was. The entrance hall of our room we were greeted by ants welcomes, a cockroach we were allowed in the rooms. After a week the water from the bath only with 2 hour delay has expired, it was indeed in the 2. week repaired. Of 2 lamps was only one working. The bathroom window didn't close completely, so we are thus other animals could enjoy.
