We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the resort as a newly wedded couple. We felt well looked after from the day of our arrival till we left. All staff were friendly, helpful and most of them spoke at least some basic English. Our room was kept very clean though some upgrade would be welcomed. On the bright side were fairly new bathroom utilities and comfortable bed, for downsides I would count dated furniture, ancient TV set with bad reception and some minor faults across the room like chipped wall paint or balcony door not locking properly.
When we asked for a room change as half way through our holiday some noisy people moved into adjacent rooms, it was dealt with properly though it took a day due to the fully filled capacity.
As regards food, the buffet was just ok -satisfactory choice but very repetitive. In contrast we really enjoyed some of the theme restaurants - the Italian and the Japanese, we didn't fall into liking with the Cuban one though. Also the quality of service between the main and theme restaurants reflected above.
The resort enjoys good choice of bars - including pool and beach bars. The selection of drinks, cocktails and specialty coffees at the main lobby was out of this world (inclusively of some international brands of alcohol).
Entertainment was good on some nights however it was mainly addressed to either children or a bit older public whilst we're in early 30s. The highlight was 13th anniversary of the resort celebration with some roast hog and coconut shell cocktails.
The range of excursions offered at the hotel was great although some might have been seen as a little pricey. Due to the resort location there were no option to go out in the evening, however during the day there was a choice of a vintage taxi, open top bus or horse drawn cart trips in addition to the fore - mentioned excursions (including open bar catamaran trip with snorkeling on the agenda and visit to a dolphinarium).
To summarise, we would recommend this resort to everyone who prefers laid back family friendly atmosphere as a contrary to bustling, noisy resorts with the nightlife in abundance as well as to someone for whom it's important to meet certain budget when going for holiday.

Not recommended as a mature couple as the resort is far too noisy and there is nowhere to escape the noise unless you go for a long walk.
We felt the food was very good when we managed to get to it fighting the hungry hourds. the queues were lengthy and the eaters veracious, so much so that we found it impossible to eat a meal together in any degree of comfort. The resort should definitely not be advertised for mature couples and certainly not when we had been told by the agent that it was quiet!
The beaches are beautiful and the sea fantastic for snorkeling but spoiled by the very loud music constantly being thrown out by the over large speakers on the beach. There were plenty of low grade activities for families but very little for a more mature person. We certainly won't be revisiting.

Super holiday, no real problems.
Super 2 wks, staff very good, helpful. Location fabulous especially the short walk to beach. Only complaint pounding disco music until 2am from the Blau costa verde next door hotel in room 4122. Other than that no complaints would return. Disappointed we could not get to Havana because of plane problems.

very relaxing staff friendly and very helpfull
overall very good the staff were friendly and helpful the only thing that spoiled our holiday a bit was my husband went deep sea fishing with people who had never been on a boat before they were sea sick so everyone had to come back and as he paid £58 for this trip felt a bit let down
