We researched this hotel on tripadvisor.ca. It more than filled our need for a holiday trip to Havana for the following reasons:
*We specifically wanted to avoid the "resort" type, cloistered experience and have closer interaction with the local culture.
*We wanted to spend the bulk of our time in the city of Havana but did not want to be trapped in a downtown hotel. Hotel Atlantico offers daily free shuttle service to old Havana. The trip is under 1/2 hour each way.
*This hotel offers an "all inclusive" package in conjunction with Sunwing, So, travel, accommodation, meals and drinks were taken care of for a very reasonable package price.
*We also wanted to spend down time on the beach. The hotel is situated on beautiful ocean front with a well kept & safe beach.
Food was healthy with fruit and deserts always plentiful. However, do not expect the variety found in the five star resorts. The hotel is showing it's age a bit, but was spotlessly clean at all times. the rooms and beds were spacious and comfortable. Above all, the AC worked flawlessly and there was always plenty of hot water available. This is something I did not consistently find in some of the four & five star resorts we've stayed at in recent years. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and always willing to assist. The live music provided by local musicians was another pleasant surprise, when compared to the pre-packaged and staged entertainment we found on the big resorts.
Hotel Atlantico filled our needs and then some. I would gladly return when irresistible Havana calls again. So, if you are looking to explore rather than stay behind the walls of a remote resort, this hotel is indeed a viable alternative.
