Cuba Absolutely Review
This is a largish property of 188 rooms, which mainly caters to a relatively cheap package crowd. This has a good location next to the lively and popular Santa Maria beach, which is gorgeous. There are the normal facilities you would expect including a disco, tennis courts, swimming pool and car hire companies. Frankly this big blue monster is an architectural disaster both inside and out.
On the downside the food is typically poor and the overall ambience is a long way from elegant. The fact that the disco was closed for a while due to prostitution is a little indicative. Lively and non-pretentious this is a good budget beach offer but don’t think you are going to an up-market place.
The Tropicoco Hotel is situated just meters away from the best beach in eastern Havana and a 20-minute car drive from Old Havana.
