Totally Not What I Expected :(
Well other then our flight being on time, everything else starting going down hill quick after that.
Airport transfer to hotel was confusing, considering the hotel was only 5 mins away, I could have walked there quicker.
The check in was usual, and considering there were only 45 cabins on the property and not even 50% booked, that I could at least get one closer to the beach? Nice try but that didn't happen.
I think it must have been raining honey the day prior to our arrival, since the place was buzzing with flys, and I don't mean just outside, inside the restaurants, EVERYWHERE !!!
The flys were a big problem for the entire 7 days, as was the sand flys which feasted on many travellers legs!
I was happy that we didn't go the week prior because 30 ppl got sick at our resort. Never use boiled eggs from the day before and use them as deviled eggs the next day, food borne illness written all over that.
Mini bar was never stocked and was never to be stocked daily, except for a bottle of water.
Beach towels had no way of being exchanged at the pool, because they are only exchanged with your maid at 9:30 am in your room, so much for leaving for breakfast early and going to the beach with a fresh towel. Oh I forgot to mention there was NO BEACH
We had to be transported from hotel on a bus which stopped at every other hotel to pick up there guests, then go to the Mariana, then take a boat across to island, total trip from hotel to beach, an hour.
Then unless you brought a lunch from hotel, they were ripping people off with $2 beers & $15 tiny buffet lunch that's pesos too $1 Canadian = .70 Cuban
I thought I was sometimes at a SPCA considering I saw more dogs & cats then birds at the resort.
Just make sure to wash your hands if you decide on wanting to pet one of them ;)
I guess I could go on and on about the 1st and last time I will go to Cayo Largo but I have to get back to work now !
Let's just say that I would rather go see the nutcracker at Christmas then go to see the “Ballerina” hint hint
