You know you chosen poorly when:
You arrive late at 2:00am, your tired, you get your room key from the friendly person at the desk you walk what seems forever out to your room you open the door and there is a very understanding couple in the room you are assigned who you unfortunately wake up. So you make the trek back to the front desk, past a pumping station that smells like an open sewer and they argue with you as to who is actually in the room.
Finally you get your own room and its not bad, you got a view of every bus that comes into the place but by now your so tired you crash.

Morning your ready for another day

You know you chosen poorly when:
Buffet time the first dome you open at the buffet is scrambled eggs, i think, the next one is empty, the next one contains blood sausage and the next one contains a substance that was later identified as bacon soaked bread. Health food oh boy
The smell of the buffet is to say the least interesting, you know that you can trust a piece of toast but they can't seem to locate any bread.
The coffee (ok) is black and after about 3 ozs. of milk it is , well still black.
You know you chosen poorly when:
You refer to the buffet as the "8 domes of doom"

So you go to the pool because its about a mile to the beach and things are going pretty good until the music starts, I'm not a prude but give me a break turn down the volume a little.

After about 3 days you decide to take one of the recommended trips to Havana and you get on a really nice bus and you realize that your tour guide hates Americans and loves to talk about how much he hates Americans, and he "wants you to tip him good and not just with candies because you have to consider how he has affected your life in your tip. Right Elliott. Have a tic tac.

After the trip to Havana you go back to your hotel and the domes of doom. The next morning you wake up with Castro's revenge. I wonder where that came from.
In short rooms , pool, beach, staff, a la Cartes , drinks and entertainment , not bad, food is garbage no hope for to improve. Fix the elevator.

I'll never go here again and likely won't go back to Cuba again.
