Fellow wondering travellers, if you are looking for a single occupancy nice looking chill resort with a great beach and incredible staff, look no further. This resort was unbeatable price wise and i did not regret booking my trip. This country is absolutely safe and great for single travellers, men or women. The resort is quiet as it is currently changing names and I simply love the quiet and personal feel. I would definitely go back, but ask for building 11, 12 or 16, close to the beach and pool. The food was edible, nothing to go nuts about, Cuba food. The buffet gets redundant and do not expect too much seafood on the menus, for this you need to book 5 star. The staff is attentive everywhere, helpful and friendly. Trying to lean some spanish before you go will go a long way. The rooms are roomy and nice and well cleaned every day. They are complete with safe, fridge, coffee maker and sitting area. I always ask my maid for more water and leave a tip since i find that one bottle is never enough for one person a day...The ocean view is worth the $, nothing beats hearing the ocean from your room while napping. it is too bad the resort is the very last on the peninsula, making it far to get to, but it also makes it quiet so a bonus. I have stayed at 3 other resorts closer to Varadero (2 x5 star adults only and one 4 star) and found more traffic on the beach and busier resorts in general. Stay away from the beer they serve from plastic bottles, flat and gross. Found the beach to be clean and quiet, the pool to be a good spot for late afternoon drinks and salsa lessons , do not miss the quiet pool by the light house, gorgeous. If you can avoid using the internet, do so, quite slow and expensive, NO WIFI at this resort. The disco was quite lame, but i really didnt care to stay up and listen to horrible dance music all night anyways. The lobby bar is a great place to see some live cuban music at night and meet fellow travellers from all over the world. Go with a relaxed mind and you will enjoy this country, resort and all it has to offer. do not forget where you are, this isnt home and life on the island is quite far from what we know of life. Que tenga un buen viaje...
