Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service
We had a great time at the beach. It was beautiful and I would go back to the area just for that. Generally Cuba is beautiful and the people were very friendly. In Veradero itself we did run into a scammy horse cart driver who told us 10 cuc for a 3 km ride to a market and then tried to charge 10 each for 5 of us. We settled on 30 but it was not a nice situation. The resort staff were wonderful and the food was ok. The people work with what they have and are incredible! The entertainment staff were lots of fun and very talented.

I didnt had light in the bedroom area, they never changed the light bulb , flies over the food on lunch time birds grabbing food from the buffett area, a bed that you could feel the springs , a tv that you only could see lines across .I told them about it 3 times and on the last day I had to request towel because the room was never service. All I can say there picture can fool anyone and WIFI is not available in all the Hotel.
