We were there in March this year. It’s a new hotel so there isn’t much landscaping and unless you want to be packed like sardines under the communcal palapa rectangle, you need to bring your own sunshade tent thingie (We got ours at Canadian Tire). Oh, and white sandy beaches do not equal great snorkelling. There is a good patch further west of the resort, but it’s now in front of the Melia Buenavista resort and I don’t know how accessible it is. Be forwarned if you are divers that the marina doesn’t have the capacity to handle all the resorts there now and you should really phone them in advance to make arrangements. We spent the whole week trying to arrange one day of diving on an overcrowded boat in crappy weather. Otherwise, it is one the nicest resorts in terms of the rooms and facilities we have encountered in Cuba and even nicer than the Melia Cayo Santa Maria, where we stayed in 2005. Otherwise, have fun and enjoy this place while it’s still affordable. We did!
