  • Vibe

    Grand. Very very grand.

  • Pool/Gym


  • Restaurant

    Yes, complimentary continental breakfast

  • Bar

    Yes, a very simple one.

  • Minibar

    Very cheap rum. Cheaper than the mixers. You have been warned.

  • Wifi

    Gotta pay by the hour, but that's standard in Cuba...even for locals.

  • Children

    Bring them, but it's a quiet place that does not cater to kids. If your kids love marble, you've come to the right place.
