We booked a vacation in this new resort in february 2020 and stayed there for 7 wonderful days. the resort is about 40 minutes from the cayo coco international airport. On arrival, we were offered refreshments. the staff at the reception ( and everywhere at the resort) was professional and courteous. The room, a junior suite was very nice, large, well furnished and very clean. The super large bed was most comfortable and spotless. the AC unit worked perfectly and was very quiet. Yunior who cleaned the room daily was excellent and courteous. the food at the resort was amazing, the a la carte restaurants were very good and varied, as an example, we had very good filet mignon at the Anchor with a good red wine. The buffet was also very good with items such as smoked salmon and an excellent prosciutto and offered a wide variety of fresh and tasty foods prepared by chefs, in the back of the buffet is a row of stations to prepare as you wish, fresh fish, brochettes and grilled meats, pizza, etc... wait until you see the desert section, be prepared to gain a few pounds. Heriberto who works at the buffet gave us an excellent service during our stay. The service of all the restaurants was impeccable. we most enjoyed the 555 bistro near the pool for lunch for the ambiance and good food and view of the beautiful pool and of the incredible turquoise color of the sea. The staff at the bistro is great we had excellent professional service from Yumis and Marianna. The Beach was truly beautiful, the sea color there was exceptional with many shades of turquoise, green and deep blue colors. there were plenty of brand new and comfortable chairs and palapas providing plenty of shade for everyone, we did not have to get up as 6 am to reserve a chair at the beach they were available at any time.

We would definitely go back to this hotel and absolutely recommend it.

I almost hesitate to write this review, I don’t want the secret to get out about this place!!
We were booked at the Muthu next door and after 2 horrible days thankfully we were able to change to the Rainbow.
The rooms are new and fantastic! We were lucky enough to get a top floor room and everywhere you look the oceans beautiful color is reflected within the room. I’m a super light sleeper and the noise transfer is minimal at this resort. The tv actually has quite a few stations that we could watch.
All the staff were super nice but the 2 that stood out for us are the beach bartenders Karl and Magdiel, always a friendly greeting and great service. Lucia at customer service was fantastic as well in arranging late checkout for us, greatly appreciated.
The food is good, the buffet is buffet food. We didn’t get a chance to try the restaurants. We always found the snack bar food fantastic and made fresh for you upon ordering.
We were up early and in bed early every night so we didn’t see the shows but the animation team worked hard everyday to get people involved in games by the pool.
I did notice a lot of people didn’t tip, please remember these workers work hard all day and commute from far away. A dollar or two is not going to kill any vacationers and can make a big difference in the workers lives. We also brought a lot of items ( they were originally for the first resort-we were in contact with a rep there and asked what we could bring for them, he gave us a list of things and we brought them all from office supplies to medical supplies to a new backpack- unfortunately we had such a terrible stay at Muthu, the gentleman who requested the items didn’t get them, but all the workers at the Rainbow did. Tip tip tip!!’
My husband arranged for a fishing trip with the guys at the nautical centre, he had a fantastic time!! Definitely recommend if your a fisherman.
I have not wanted to return to a resort before, but I will be returning to the Rainbow🏖🌈

My Partner and i stayed at the Gran Muthu Rainbow from Nov 17th to the 24th 2021.

I cannot express what a wonderful experience this was for us.

From the moment we stepped off the Bus, to the moment we left a week later we were very happy with the resort, The food, the service, and just the over all feel of this resort itself.

It was so amazing to see SUCH a mix of guests, Gay , straight , young, old and everyone there to just enjoy themselves and all got along and had a great time with one another

The staff were exceptional, from the room service to the Medical Dr on site, we were treated with kindness, dignity and respect.

With these unsure times, it was a relief to see the covid procedures in place, sanitation stations everywhere, and staff cleaning behind your every move, to make sure the resort was kept clean and safe .
The buffet food service, was only handled by staff, and you were served by the person at that station, no guests touched the serving utensils.
Rooms clean, restaurants you could eat off the floors, honestly spotless.

Even the cleaning crews were sweet, we were lucky enough to have Yasmany , who made sure he left our room spotless everyday, with sweet little gestures in our room to show the pride in his work .

There was no issue getting our PCR tests done by Dr. Chavez, 30$ American , charged to our card, and results given in a timely manner, with ease .

We stayed on the 4th floor ocean view , south end of the building, and had an excellent view of the ocean, and the resort.

Everyday there was a theme on the resort, from Cuba day, to Gay Pride day, but none were shoved in your face, if you wished to partake excellent , if you did not you were left to enjoy your day as you saw fit .

A special mention goes out to Kitty Nona, who was so kind , to Jordan on the lobby desk , who looked after all our questions with patience in both speaking English or Spanish
Yani , on the front desk, who was so sweet and courteous

Dr Chavez, as mentioned,and his assistant, were so patient with us when we had a few minor medical issues .

Overall, room service, Excellent, food service Excellent, staff and service , over the top.

we will definitely be back to this resort

We have found our new "home " in Cubas first LGBTQ resort

Visited this amazing resort form February 17-28, 2020 and were so glad we did. Yes it is a LGBTQ resort but it is definitely open to all people. My husband and I were very comfortable as there was a good mix.

Everything you have read in the previously reviews is correct. The rooms beautiful and have everything you need. The food is fantastic and well above the normal level of food we have previously had in Cuba. In fact it was really 5 star and on par with Mexico etc.

What truly stands our here is the people! The staff cannot do enough for you. The entertainment staff are wonderful. Special shout out to Angela, Ricki and Kitty Nona! They are always trying to get people involved and want your time there to be special. We went to the disco offsite one night with the beautiful blonde, who i have forgotten her name :( and she made sure we had the best time. There is a bus that leaves the resort at 11:00 pm and brings you home at 1:00 pm. It is literally a 6 minute bus ride so if you didn't want to stay that long you could take a cab back. Great music and drinks very reasonable.

There is a hairdresser named Rodrigo who is an absolutely doll and very talented. My husband got his hair cut and I had a wash and blow dry which was a nice treat. Don't miss out seeing him when you are there. His english isn't great but Google translate works wonders and he is such a gem.

The waitstaff are all great too! Annie and Kevin took great care of us at the buffet and the staff at the al a carts were fantastic. The indian restaurant is AMAZING and incredibly authentic. Special thanks to Jordan who assisted with booking these dinners. His smile and hugs were always such a great addition to the days we spent there.

Don't forget to visit the snack bar! Sweet Yumi took such amazing care of us!! she kept the champagne flowing all the time :) The biggest smile and couldn't do enough to make our time there special. The food is so good there. Definitely try the pizza and fish n chips!

As the resort has only opened it is under capacity currently but we enjoyed that a lot! No fighting for chairs at all. I have no doubt that when word gets out about this amazing resort the prices will go up and it will be booked up. Go now while you still have a chance...I hope to return soon!

My husband and I recently returned from Gran Muthu Rainbow, this hotel is the best we have stayed at in the 15 years we have vacationed in Cuba. We were greeted with warm and friendly smiles from Lucia and Johana in Public Relations. This hotel has spacious, new and spotlessly clean rooms with walk-in showers and deep soaker tubs. We stayed in block One on the fourth floor with a panoramic ocean view. This hotel has two beaches with plenty of Palapas and lounge chairs with Hector and William ready to help you settle in and Magdrel at the beach bar to mix your favourite drink. The restaurants are new and clean and beautifully decorated.Thank You to Yadira, Duangned, Sofia Yolengnys and all the other great staff in the restaurants that looked after us each day, and to Karel in the snack bar who made us great lattes every-morning and to Rosangela in the lobby bar who served us drinks with a beautiful smile. The food here was great, with all the stations ready to make you pasta, pizza, or various types of fish or meat. Or try the snack bars fish and chips burgers or hot dogs, they even have shish kebabs at the pool bar. Thanks also to Lisandra who kept our room clean and to the great reception staff for their patients. We apologies if we missed anyone by name so many warm and friendly faces. Thank You We Shall Return.

Totally perfect. Food, staff, service, room, pool.. beach not great, but improvements are coming.

I was there there first few weeks of opening, so staff, although helpful, didn't quite know the menu yet. But they all found out everything and were great.

Bar staff wonderful, charming and fast.

Rooms are nice, clean and nicely laid out. Housekeeping worked such long days that it was hard to know when your room would get cleaned.

Food was great, excellent for Cuba and fun ideas. Decent variety.

Entertainment was good, could use a bit better programming... Everyday is Saturday for tourists... have a dance scene every night. We just want to have fun.

the grounds are lovely and I'll be back.. I may never go anywhere else.

Only flaw is that there were not enough gay men for a gay resort. Come on guys, book your next stay here.

We spent 4 days at this resort, and had a wonderful time! Everything at this hotel is very tastefully decorated, very clean and all of the staff at this resort do a great job making sure that their guests have a great vacation. The beach is very nice and easy to get into the crystal clear blue water.

I would like to thank Lucia, the hotel manager, and Yanet, the front reception manager for going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, and a wonderful time at this hotel.

The evening dance shows were extremely well choreographed and the dancers are fabulous!

We received fabulous service in all the restaurants, especially would like to thank Yurishel, Daniel, and Vanelis in the a la carte restaurants for such great service.
The lobby staff was also very attentive to our needs, thanks to Pedro, Alex and Zury, you guys do a great job!
We would also like to thank Yosmier from the gym, and Richi from the activities team, she is such a personable young lady!
We will be back, thanks to everyone! Love from Tara and Gary!

We arrived on a tuesday late evening and the resort was very calm. The receptionist was very kind and walked us to our room.
The next day was also very calm, it seemed like the animation was lacking during the day, which worried us for a little bit. We knew we booked during the low season and we were afraid it would be a bit too calm. However, the party started in the evening, the animation crew was very entertaining. After that the animation was there all day long.
The crew that were making the shows was very good, they even sang some song very well.
Since we were in the low season and the resort had only a few resident(around 50) only one or two restaurants would be open at the time and the menu at the buffet was pretty much the same the whole week.
We also had a few special night where the dinner would be outside with grilled meat, which was very good for Cuba.
The resort has 2 beaches, the ugly one and the pretty one. The former is the closest to the rooms but the shore is full a rocks and coral as when the latter is full of sand and very beautiful.
Overall the the hotel is very clean, the rooms are big and amazing, and the maids did an excellent job.
The staff was lovely to us. We need to mention the excellent service we had from Yoa at the lobby bar, she was very cheerful and all smile. Also she makes really good bresillian coffee and took great selfies with us.
The vibe at the resort is very nice people are very respectful and nice to each other.
We also had very good service with Jordan at the lobby.
We'll definately come back at some point.
The little boutique doesn't old much stuff aside from red bulls, rhum, cigarettes/cigare. It didn't have all the personal hygiene stuff we wanted (condoms, etc) and what they had was very costly.

Positive: Hotel Rooms are excellent

Overall Experience rating: 3.7 but not 4 for sure

Customer Care: Hit and Miss, listen to you but pretend that they don’t understand all issues that you may have.

GM: Mexican manager, understand your issues and willing to fix or help.

Pool: Straight set up as seen in picture nothing fancy, more like regular hotel swimming pool

Cuban Restaurant: This is the place where generally all food is being served, particularly lunch and dinner. Outdoor set up, Flies (Moska) are not avoidable, and they will taste food prior you, this part of island is generally Windy and not sure why MGM never noticed that outdoor restaurant is not workable. We had most of the salad items flying out of dishes and some table clothes as well. MGMG needs to move the lunch and dinner part out of this place to middle restaurant areas. FOOD is Always COLD in this place.

Ala Cate: Most of them were good but limited items and portion. Indian and Asian Restaurants were good. They open one restaurant a day with pre-booking only. Opening every day would help as people would have food to eat.

Beach: Lot of weeds and no activities while we were there as it was windy. Hotel needs to work on setting up sand on beach and clean up. Generally, people got to Playa Pillar by paying 5$ pers person with limited transportation. This hotel is not for beach goers.

Restaurant Staff: Everyone is always there to help, and we appreciate that. One exception, the main restaurant lady manager, she was ignorant.

Night Entertainment: No stage performance by any local group or s, but it is more like engaging Guests and create entertaining environment

Some hustlers: We found some hustlers in the Hotel, and I discussed issue with general manager. If you need taxi, then there should be Cuban taxi as the bell boys take commission and hook you up with a taxi that will charge you more. Front desk team is also involved in scam. They should call Cuban Taxi and not private taxi for your taxi needs. I have stayed in many Cuban resorts, and this is the only place I find issues like this. Hope management will work on this part.

Arrived late on check in day. We had requested via SUNWING and direct email to the hotel to have rooms close to one another. Unfortunately that was not available, they upgraded 1 room to ocean view and the other at the far end of the same floor, opposite side. Not a big deal but it would have been nice to be closer. The snack bar was the only thing only for food at 10:30 pm, the server appeared as though we had bothered him when we asked about ordering some food and a drink. We got our food and a drink, left a tip and then went back to our rooms. I have been to different parts of Cuba 12 times prior, but not since Covid. There was a great deal of repetition on the buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You don't go hungry but it does get a bit tiring to see much the same each meal. French fries were only available at the snack bar and there was no pizza the entire week, nor hamburgers as we know them. The CUBAN day buffet was in the open air section, the flies were bad at lunch and at dinner. Staff appeared to have a hard time clearing tables and resetting for new people to sit. A la cartes: we went to 3, the Indian was definitely not my favorite, we went to the buffet after, and ran in to several others who were also at the same dinner. The rooms are large and still fairly new, towels were replaced and cleaning done daily. I didn't see any bugs in my room. The entire property is still fairly new but it will start to show it's age if minor repairs don't start, the pergola's need a coat of paint as they are showing raw wood. Shower stalls need the water seal replaced around the doors so water doesn't seep onto the floor in the washrooms. Internet was out a few of the 7 days we were there. The staff are excellent, the Customer Service Manager, Jordan, was a joy to deal with and make reservations for a la carte dinners. He also offered advice on things to do. The entertainment staff's evening shows were very good, a few were outstanding. I wish they would announce where they would be instead of having to find the location. The beach was great but the sand fleas thought I was a buffet. A great vacation in spite of everything and I would return.

There is plenty of places to sit in the shade, either one of the laughing chairs or cabana beds, the sun does pass over the resort around 3-3:30ish...so there ends up being shade in sections of the large pool too!
