Everything is basic here and I will not come back as I want the perfect holiday, at most, this is the best place for people who are on a budget and don’t mind the saggy beds. I mainly went to this place for the bird watching and now that I have the experience, I’m not coming back because it was the only thing I enjoyed doing here. The hotel is quite large and has very spacious environment but they have very few activities for their guests to join and then they charge for the few they have planned. The bungalow accommodation here is good, nothing out of the ordinary and it is clean, I will give them that. The bungalow has all the amenities such as TV, air condition and fridge and they were working properly. Hot water supply during my stay was good but despite these things, I felt like the place was rather boring and had no vibe. It is a good place don’ get me wrong, just not my scene. I had the most annoying coffee here which is unlike Cubans who serve the best coffees in the world in my opinion. There is no internet here; at least there was none when I visited in March. The hotel staffs were all nice and accommodating, the environment looked clean, I just wasn’t feeling the place. The food is disappointing might I add, I have had better meal choices in other hotel restaurants so I ate out most of the time.

Arrival:
friendly

Rooms:
small bungalows : spacious, good bed

bathroom : new, big, very clean

windows : brand new but not closing on 1 side

parking : in front of your bungalow

Restaurants and Bars:
restaurant : they will never serve butter. instead of butter we always get mayonnaise even for the breakfast with our toast. yerk !!!!

music : a group is playing music during diner, nice

Beach/Pools/Grounds:
terrible : there is no private beach at this hotel and this THE beach of the whole bay and people are coming here by thousands (by bus, car, truck) it is a complete invasion.

throwing their waste everywhere on the beach (bottles, papers, can, food) it is dirty and even in the water.

Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
there is a dive center at the end of the beach. a good one lost in the crownd.

very nice shore dives between playa giron and playa Larga with Regino

on the way between playa giron and playa larga you have on the side of the road a nice cenote, go there to refresh much better than playa larga

the hotel presents just the enough stuff to be a hotel. it has houses that are individual, like an american neighborhood. Entering the house i was welcomed by 4 lizards wich was necessary to remove, as well as the giant spiders. In the evening and with rain, always we had the visit of a frog... so very in touch with nature. the restaurant as just the enough to be a restaurant too, courses of very basic meals of fish (never try nothing aside the seafood) and meat. The personnal is as in everywhere in Cuba, friendly. the beach was good - we stayed here almost alones - there was a bar very nice next to it, but you should not go out at night in exploration, as one night we heard a female screaming for "Ayudo" for several minutes, wich petrified us... in the village next to the hotel. The location is superb if you are a bird watcher (as we are) because the National Park (guided tours) is 500m away, but there are lots birds in the park if you are REALLY lasy

Room Number:
40
