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)
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
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
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 next door (again, in walking distance) for casual shopping and some live entertainment.
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)
-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).
