    OVERVIEW The good: intimate size (100 rooms), quiet atmosphere, 2 pools, 3 beaches with long walks, great staff, and the best food we've had in Cuba. The not-so-good: it's a 100-120 minute bus ride from the airport, and because the resort is built on lagoon-like...More

    Rooms that say, The Level, are they all ground floor rooms? Also how crowded is it during the first week of May.

    Sorry don't know about the Level but we did have to queue to get into the dining room on several occasions. We enjoyed our stay though. There is plenty of room around the pools, lots of sun beds.

    I'm planning to travel to Cuba in July with my husband and sons 18 and 21. We are thinking of an adult resort rather than a family one - as we don't want to be surrounded by young children - but I wondered what the average age of this hotel is with it being adult only. Any advice please? Thank you
