I would highly recommend this hotel. Key elements:
THINGS TO BRING (bug repellent, refillable container for the beach since the cups are very small, night light for the bathroom and your own face cloth) RECOMMENDATIONS Put a towel on the chair next to the beach at 7:00 Get a pad from the beach clubhouse to put on our beach lounger Go to the mall to buy wine in order to bring it in the à la carte restaurant Ask for another blanket and will receive it immediately Tip the servers if you want anything done they get a whole lot friendlier Ask for extra foam on the bed since they are hard Put all valuable items in your carry on Make reservation for the à la carte restaurant from the day you arrive otherwise they will tell you its all booked Change small amount of your money at the reception ROOM Check-in time: 15:00. Check-out time: 12:00 Yesumaris is the person to see front desk if the room is not to our satisfaction The first floor rooms had a bit of a smell, second floor rooms not so great, third floor rooms are very nice as well as the hallway and the view on the third floor is great. We had room 3103 king size bed, view of the golf course and water, it was very clean and would highly recommend it BEACH Are very close to the door of the resort Saturday and Sunday more locals on the beach this would be a good day to go out of the hotel No sea weeds No harassment by vendors on the beach DRINKS Cristal Cuban beer is good and cold Cocktail are strong Lobby bar has more variety of alcohol A sweet wine called Legendario is terrible Pina colada is made from powder PLAZA plaza next door (again, in walking distance) for casual shopping and some live entertainment. GOLF RESTAURANT The 2 minute walk from the hotel lobby to the Xanadu (DuPont) Mansion at the golf course, for a drink in the lounge or dinner is definitely a todo. (veal came with a purée of mashed potatoes, vegetable and well presented) RESTAURANTS -The lady who makes reservations Angela was so kind and helped to coordinate our à la carte which was no easy task with so many of us and she did so with a smile. IL LIMONCELLO (Mediterranean food Italian) Mediterranean | À la carte La Arcada (international restaurant with spring quartet music). The croquettes, lobster bisque, chicken pasta and salty fish are very good. The Robleza Barbecue,Cuban | À la carte. Location: Pool area It is open air dining with Cuban cuisine (bbq) lunch is good, Paella is good served for two people or four (seasoned rice, shrimps and mussels) Sakura JJapanese | À la carte Location: Pool area Japanese restaurant was nice the portions are big enough for the women we also tend to love this restaurant super show cooking – an entertainment in itself La Terraza (buffet restaurant)International | Buffet Notes: Air conditioning, Dress code, Fresh fish selection grilled on request Bread is made daily and no preservatives. There is this delicious garlic oil that they would flavor the meat at the meat station or put it your pasta. Bacon undercooked Eggs are fresh eggs Pasta bar is good especially the meet sauce

Excellent Resort
From the moment we arrived we were treated with such class. The resort is beautiful. There was not one spot I didn't find well taken care of. Upon check in, the front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Our room had the most beautiful view of the ocean right before sunset. The bar in the lobby had the best drinks and coffees. The bartenders were always extremely happy and friendly. They always remembered what we were having. (Pedro, Andreas etc.) The restaurants (Japanese, Italian and Cuban) were all fabulous and easy to book for two people. The pools and grounds are well taken care of and maintained. My only complaint was around the pool towels not being available most days to exchange for a clean one. The beach is extremely clean and well taken care of. The ocean water is the most turquoise color and is wonderful for swimming. There are plenty of beach chairs. The free boat rides are fun! There are many chairs in the shade for those not wanting too much sun. You can easily walk on the beach 15 minutes to the small mall to buy snacks or go to the bank. (plaza america) On the last day I found out about going to the top floor of the main building (11th) the most beautiful views. You can pay extra in the evening to have dinner up here. I highly recommend. Spectacular view and lobster dinner. The internet can be purchased by the hour but I enjoyed turning my phone off and soaking in all the food, culture and language. The snack bar is open at all hours and has a good variety. The service is a little slower. The evening shows in the theater were very entertaining and some excellent different talents. I especially loved the acrobatic evening (Wednesday). The gym facilities and spa are very lovely and not very busy. Tennis lessons were amazing. After talking with other tourists on the bus to Varadero this resort is one of the few that provides free drinks in the room fridge. Was a very nice touch. I can't wait to come back to Cuba very soon!

Beautiful environment, challenges with food
I loved the resort as soon as we walked into the front entrance. It's bright with a high ceiling and fresh air flowing gently through. I loved the gardens, fresh flower arrangements, multiple varieties of palms, etc. that made the resort feel earthy. The indoor public spaces are high and bright in general, making them feel quiet, cool and relaxed. In calm weather, the beach was the most gorgeous I'd ever seen, like a massive extended pool with a sand bar 20'-30' or so off the shore that made it possible for our trustworthy 8yo to roam safely from the beach chairs to the sandbar without close supervision as long as he was within sight. The water is gloriously turquoise! We had some windy weather for a few days as well, though, and although body surfing is fun the sand gets in the swimsuit pretty quickly in the tumultuous water. The guys who run dance/pool aquazumba/stretching on the beach/etc. were fantastic, keeping up a steady pace of fun activities throughout the week. I appreciated how they respectfully came around and individually invited people around the pool, across the beach, and as they passed through the resort. The kids activities were pretty great, too, including a magician, a night of dancing on the theater stage, and an animal show. The only issue was the food. Some of the staff seemed to be embarrassed at how many choices on the menus were not available during our stay. If all the choices had been there, it would have been much easier. But there were no more than 5 types of fresh veggies (cucumber, green pepper, onion, tomato, cabbage) the whole week. Every restaurant creatively repackaged the fresh veg according to their style (Mexican, French, Japanese, etc.). Beef was very tough unless it was well done. Pastries at breakfast are hard and dissatisfying UNLESS you heat them up––toaster or grill. Then they're delicious. I did very much enjoy the deep-fried plantain and the fresh coconuts with a straw available at particular times at the entrance to the beach. The limited menu was most challenging once we got sick after dinner the second night and couldn't stomach much more than yogurt and fruit at breakfasts thereafter, and fresh veg. I had wished for more flavour at first, but after getting sick I sincerely appreciated plain rice and butter! As we knew in advance, there's not a lot of variety in flavour on the resort. I hear restaurants off the resort are a different matter, but we didn't make it out anywhere else after getting sick. We also made great use of the tennis courts (there was purportedly only one tennis ball, so we had a grand hunt for the ball when it went over a fence) and the big checkers board. I really appreciated there being the little souvenir shops right on the resort. We were able to bring a few small things back without needing to go out shopping. The room is very basic, and the beds are firm. However, after a lot of sun and lots of activity, sleep comes more easily! I loved the sliding glass door to the bathroom: classy! There is no bath, just a roomy shower with a seat that turned out to be better suited than a bath to the daily post-pool/beach showering and rinsing out of clothing. Wifi is available for purchase, or our package included 1 hour per day of stay. We had to be right in the lounge to access it, but it's a pleasant place to hang out.
