First, bring your bug spray for outside and in your room. I have been to this hotel a few times and I can see the improvement by management. The pool is being worked on along with the surrounding gardens. Management needs to designate a crew just for trash pick up around the hotel. It will be evident if they are not doing their job. Security is a joke. They allow outside guests the prime shade chairs on the beach because they are being "paid off". Non-hotel visitors are drinking and eating the snack bar food, because Beach staff are getting it and selling it. A female friend was offered "alone time" by working staff. Most of the beach staff are hustling for favors, money or your personal property or clothing.
The dive shop needs better BC and reg equipment! The dives are great and interesting areas. But, staff shouldn't be indulging in alcohol between dives.
The rooms are okay with clean bed sheets but I recommend wearing slippers.
The hotel should assign someone to grow mint on the property, maybe in pots on the deck. The restaurant has a ton of flies! An older shorter cook at the grill likes to hustle for your jewrely or sunglasses. Don't incourage his behavior by giving up your belongings. Internet rarely works. When something doesnt go right just remember "it's Cuba". Your experience may be better if you start with tipping everyone, you might get a smile. Beach location is good, service depends if you tip, and value is good if you drink.
