Here are some notes on my first visit to Cuba and the island of Cayo Largo specifically. 1) It is not Cuba mainland - this is a small island that inhabits tourists and no one else save the workers that rotate to the island for work. Don't expect anything more, except beautiful weather, incredible beaches and a very laid back...

Just got back from Playa Blanca. Visited for a week (April 8-15). There were 3 of us, each with a single room (in the main building). Overall, you get what you pay for. We didn't expect too much in terms of food & accommodation. We each had an issue with our respective rooms. One had to be moved to a...

The ONLY reason I don't rate this place as a 5 star is because their is ZERO beach. You have quite a journey to walk to "their" beach. My only real complaint has ZERO to do with this hotel, but rather my beef is with the poor Air Transit on site service.. so I wont go there... Although Alexis at...

Playa Blanca is simply a great resort when you know what you are getting. We go yearly and rent a bungalow. It is quite and if you want to rest before 'showtime', you won't hear the clarinet player playing in the lobby (rooms are in the main building). The staff is wonderful, Eduardo and his crew. The food is quite...

We travel to Playa Blanca the week of March 18. Check in was a breeze, only a couple of minutes thanks to Mayrim on the front desk and to Carlos the bellboy. We stayed in a bungalow - great view and the air conditioner was cold and very quiet. New beds are very comfortable. Francesca our chambermaid did a great...

Loved the hospitality, everyone was so nice. Although it was the off season they kept everyone entertained with dance and poolside games. I was also fortunate enough to participate in the annual release of some baby green turtles. Amazing beaches, 3 different ones to visit. Ask Roberto to make you a Sangria!

I stayed there for a week and we loved it there. It's right on the beach. To go for a swim you will need to walk around 5 minutes to go down to the beach but when you do - it's wonderful. What I loved most the place isn't packed nor is the hotel. You get to feel the nature,...

Our stay at Playa Blanca was lovely. We booked a good deal and feel we got excellent value. Like a previous reviewer, my expectations were not high. We were prepared to shuttle daily to the big beaches given the reviews. To our pleasant surprise, there were 3 boardwalk access points just to the west of the westernmost bungalow with wonderful...
