Just got back from Cuatro Vientos Santa Lucia Cuba. . . . it was an hour
and a half drive from the airport, which was canadian built as they all
are. Weather was wonderful, 30 degress plus and always sunny with a
The resort was nice with 400 rooms. Nice grounds and beach was awesome.
Pool was big with a nice swim up bar. The sand on the beach was white
just like powder but there was quite abit of seaweed which the trucks
swept up daily.
There were four bars and a disco. The lobby bar, pool bar, beach bar
and another at the restaurant for lunch - the snack bar- the disco was
not included. It was the slow seaso but more bartenders would have been
good. Most of the staff spoke good english as well as german and
The entertainment was salsa bands at nite with dancers and were very
good. The rooms were nice but the airconditioning in most did not work.
The food was terrible. Not much variety and very bland. All buffet for
breakast and dinner. We ordered a works pizza one day and got a
pizza/stew . . . . it had potatoes, peas, carrots and greenbeans on it
Overall the resort is nice for the price and the water is beautiful . .
. one week was enough though. Not much to do or see in this area
Most of the guests were british, italian, german and canadian. Safety
deposit boxes in the rooms do not work so you must pay for one at the
lobby. A deposit of $10 per towel is required and they do not like to
take visa for this.
We liked guardalavaca better but still not a bad choice for the price.
Thanks to Garry for this trip report ...
