After reading many of the reviews here, my husband & I went to this resort with a very open mind... as some travellers do demand so much from a resort.. So, keeping in mind that it is a budget resort, we just looked at it as another adventure... That having been said....we were ready to go home on day 3...

Cuba is still a "back in time destination", but not for a long. I went to Tortuga with my girlfriend and we just wanted to relax and spent some good time on this island. Hotel was always clean, so were the rooms. Our maid was perfect and our room was very clean all the time. Stuff was very friendly and...

A friend and I just got back from the Resort and would not return. I will start with the good which was the beach and the pool was nice, It was never busy so no worries of getting a lounge chair. The rooms were alright, but the beds were harder than usual and this has been the third time this...

Do not expect luxury if you decide do stay in this hotel. My room for the first night was really horrible - dark, small and smelly as the toilet was leaking. The airco was not working and it was at the far end of the property. Next day in the morning I have requested a different room and it was...

I went to Tortuga with six guys not expecting too much as we paid very little. I've been to Cuba over 10 times and know what to expect. We had a good time but this was the worst resort I've ever been too. That being said vacations are what you make of them and not everything was horrible. I read...

excellent stay. better than some of the 5-start in Cuba. and we've visited quite a few by now. We've booked through a tour-operator and requested a room on the first floor as it was me, my mom and my baby-son who travels everywhere in a stroller. I've also requested a baby-crib for the little one - he was 4-months old...

My husband and I just returned from a very last minute trip to Villa Tortuga. We were able to get a great deal and jumped on the chance to get away for a few days. My only other experience with Cuba was a stay last December at Arenas Doradas. I read the reviews of Villa Tortuga before going so knew...

Gorgeous beach, possibly the best ever! However despite most people complaining about their rooms, mine was actually ok. Although I did have to change once. My biggest complaint would be the swarms of flies, in the buffet. Really turned me off. Also only the beach bar which closed at 5, served the good beer (Cristal.) The 24 hour bar in...
