A truly relaxing holiday

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 18, 2008

We can resommend this hotel to anybody. The room, the gardens, the pool and the beach were all fantastic. We went all inclusive and the food and drinks were excellent. Champagne and bottled water available in coolers around the resort (including a jacuzzi at the pool) apart from 3 bars, one open 24 hrs. The staff were marvellous. Efficient and above all always smiling.

Unique Quality: The pool is large with plenty of sunbeds and shaded areas. Rooms are largewith a lounge area and are well furnished. Proably the most comfortable beds we have experienced in a hotel.

Directions: In a National Park

Best food in Cuba

This hotel is next door to the Rio Luna and Rio Mares, about 10 kms. from the Village of Guardalavaca. It shares the same white sand beach, and offers restaurants and craft vendors on the beach. All very very nice.
I did not stay here, but I have toured the hotel and I was invited to the buffet on one special occasion. From my experiences in Cuba, I can firmly say this hotel has the finest food in Cuba. If food is your reason for being, this is the hotel you should go to- better than some cruise ships I have been on!
Read my tips on Guardalavaca for things to do in the area
The hotel is absolutely gorgeous with local art on display. The doormen wear white gloves, and your wish is their command.
The grounds are kept in perfect condition.

Unique Quality: Lovely local art decorates the foyer, and is also sold there.
The massage table hangs over a cliff with a partial glass floor so you can look down as you relax.
This hotel sits beside a quiet lagoon that offers great opportunities to watch water-life......birds, reptiles, fish and I even saw a Cuban "boa" (snake) deeper in the lagoon woods.
Horseback riding is offered just over the footbridge, and just past the Rio Mares hotel nexct door, you will find and "eco-tourism trail". (I believe they charge $6.00 for this trail, but apologize explaining the fees are used to keep the trail viable, and resist the building of another hotel.)

Directions: About ten Kms to the west of the Town of Guardalavaca. Nearest airport is Holguin

    It seems from checking some UK holiday companies that the hotel is indeed sold as an adults-only choice..though not an 'adults only resort'.. But that does not automatically mean holiday companies from other countries, or the resort itself, have the same restrictions.
