Our 4th Trip to one of our Favourites!
We love Playa Pesquero. It's in a less populated part of Cuba, southeast of Havana/Varadero. If you're looking for 'swinging nearby nightlife' this is not the place for you. But if you're looking for a gorgeous resort, beautiful white sand beach, snorkeling on the premises, and an ice cream shop ... This is for you!
We find the staff very friendly; eager to assist, energetic, and helpful. As this was our first trip South since the start of Covid, we weren't sure how we would feel. Covid protocols were in place, staff consistently wore masks, cleanliness was evident everywhere as it always has been, and we felt completely comfortable and sooo happy to be there. Most guests wore masks when indoors, maybe 10% did not, and we all smiled and enjoyed this wonderful place.
Playa Pesquero just 'feels right' to us, and we are as comfy as if we were home. We always book a Superior Room. Its layout, size and separate closet/dressing room area is fantastic. The rooms are traditional and a bit dated, but they ooze Cuban style and we love them. The new Adult Premium section is more modern, so if you're looking for updated rooms, you may want to check that out.
The buffet and a la carte restaurants were great. We did notice some lack of variety here and there, likely due to imports from Russia being shut down, but we had many lovely meals and were pleased with the fresh fish, grilled pork, pasta station, flaming crepes with dinner, and breakfast is always great. Bacon and smoked salmon were missed this trip.
The resort was not full when we visited so we enjoyed being able to get lounge chairs/sun huts any time of the day, and we also enjoyed private cabanas at the pool.
Definitely a favourite resort!
