        “Brisas ”
        Was so looking forward to going to Brisas, the staff was very friendly , but so many things lacking with the hotel ,not much at all for fresh vegetables , fruit , Canned peas and or frozen carrots , corn , to bad when I'am sure that they could grow it there ? I also noticed that visitors that return to Brisas has way more power then first time visitors , example .not being able to get seating in the restaurant because they are booked , but a returned visitor can get seating for 12 , ,The ocean is beautiful , but they don't very often clean up the sea weed , such a beautify beach , just would look better, all in all was not bad , but will not be returning,

        “A good cheap but cheerful holiday to Cuba ”
        My husband and I stayed here from 27th Oct for 14nts. This is a nice enough hotel in the quiet resort of Guardalavaca which is about 1hr 15min from Holguin airport. ACCOMMODATION We stayed in the villa section of the hotel which we thoroughly enjoyed as our room (no 4209) had a fantastic sea view and was right next to the beach, villa pool (quiet pool) and also the seafood restaurant. We enjoyed the size of our room and also the fact that you did not have any noise from the main stage of the hotel. The air con in the villa rooms was fantastic!! We never had any issues. There was maid service every single day which was great and the towels were changed on a regular basis. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the rooms and whatever you used one day would be replenished the next, although if you like milk in your tea or coffee ? this is not provided. You will also be given a bottle of water on arrival and then have to buy your own after that but in the small shops outside the hotel you can buy a 5ltr bottle for around 2cuc which is just over a £1. I read some reviews before we went saying that the rooms are dated, well yes I suppose they are slightly but are very similar décor to many different 3/4* Caribbean hotels that I have ever stayed in previously and are spotlessly clean so I did not find that a problem. What I will say is that the bed was the comfiest bed I have ever slept in ? other than my bed at home!! I would advise if you are staying in the main hotel and have a room that overlooks the pool area that you will experience noise from the entertainment team throughout the day and also up until about 11pm at night, on beach party nights the music went on until 1am so if you have small children or like to retire early then I would definitely recommend the villa section or request a quiet room. RESTAURANTS La Turquesa was the main buffet restaurant where you could eat breakfast, lunch & dinner. BREAKFAST would be your typical breakfast foods like eggs, bacon, sausage, pastries (which were just delicious!!), cereals, cheese & cold cuts of ham etc so breakfast was good!! At breakfast & lunch there was a smoothie girl who would make fruit smoothies that were just so refreshing!! LUNCH & DINNER would be quite similar which was a variety of meats like chicken, pork, beef and a fish of some sorts, also rice & beans, potatoes, salad etc so there was always something there for us to eat although I would say became a bit repetitive the second week. A La Carte Restaurants El Patio was the seafood restaurant which also served breakfast and was our favourite as they served breakfast up until 11.30am so it meant you could have a lie in and still have cereal, yoghurt, fruite, omlets (which were so tasty), bacon, boiled eggs, toasted sandwiches or cold cuts of cheese & meat ? nothing was too much hassel! At lunch time, they served spaghetti (yummy), sandwiches with fries, salads, pizza etc and was really handy for the beach or the villa pool. At night it was the seafood restaurant which served many seafood dishes but they also catered for those who did not like seafood so don`t worry about that. La Trattoria was the Italian restaurant and although the starters were not the best, the steak was amazing!!! El Guayabero was the Cuban restaurant which was one of my favourites. The Creol soup was so chunky and wholesome and all of the meat dishes were delicious so definitely try this one!!! Restaurant Internacional was the International restaurant and we really enjoyed this one too. They do lobster which was ok but could have done some with more of sauce but was quite meaty. The best dishes in my opinion were the chicken and also the 3 meat dish ? pork, beef and chicken which was soooooo filling so don`t eat too much bread!! I don`t know what they marinate their meats in but no matter whether it was chicken, beef or pork ? they were all mouthwatering no matter what A La Carte restaurant you went to!! Also the red wine in the A La Carte restaurants is far nicer than in the main bars!!! Grill at the main pool bar served pastries for breakfast and then throughout the day served pizza, fries, burgers and sandwhiches up until around 6.30pm then from 9pm until around 6am they opened up again serving the same except pizza!!! It was really handy for a late night snack!!!! BARS I won`t really go into each bar individually but will give you pointers: Bar Compay is the bar at the main pool at the hotel was the busiest during the day and at night as you could still watch the main stage from here and any other entertainment that was going on around the pool. The drinks being served are locally branded drinks but watch out as one night they ran out of red wine and another night they ran out of vodka so I seen that a couple of guests had actually brought down their own vodka to drink. This only happened once but it did happen! El Tejado is the bar inside the hotel which had entertainment on every evening in the form of Cuban dancers, singers etc which was quite good to sit and enjoy a pre or post dinner drink. This bar serves premium brand whisky at no extra cost and makes the best Spanish coffees!! Habana Club is a roof top bar that you could miss if you do not know about it which only offer rum based drinks ? cocktails etc. The views from this bar are amazing and it is nice to go up for a nice quiet drink or 3! Dolce Vita is the night club based in the main hotel and plays a mixture of Cuban and chart music so was always good for a late night boogie or just more drinks as it is opened until 2am. TIPPING We always left a wee something at breakfast, lunch & buffet dinner ? even if it is just a couple of CUC and always left a 5cuc at each A La Carte. I also tipped the bar men now and again a couple of cuc (Cuban Convertable) as what they get paid is buttons and they really do work hard!!! TOURS We did the Cuba Inside which was really good, especially the trip to the Cigar factory 3which was so interesting and the cigars in the shop are very reasonable so don`t hesitate to buy there. GYM The gym was quite good with running machines & weight machines etc also there is a fitness instructor there (Chino who was a great guy!!) on a daily basis to help you out. ENTERTAINMENT The entertainment was not bad, there was always something on to keep you entertained. The team worked hard to put on the shows. RESORT The resort itself is very quiet so if you like to go out and about with a bit of biz at night, this is not the resort for you. When you walk out of the hotel and turn right you will come to a couple of stores, a bank and a couple of cafes. Further down you will have the market which sells hand crafted souvenirs and a couple of bars but that is it. To the left of the hotel, I am led to believe that there is a village and another store but we did not venture that way. WEATHER The first week the weather was fantastic but the second week, we had quite a bit of rain . MY TIPS TO YOU - Flying from Manchester, TCX weigh your hand luggage so if you are like me and put all of your heavy stuff into your hand luggage just watch out as they charge an extra £18per kilo!!!! You can buy extra baggage in resort from your rep for the return flight and the costs are 30cuc (approx £19) for 5kg or 60cuc (approx £38) for 10kg but keep your receipt and take to the airport as they will challenge you! - Do not buy cigars from street vendors as they are not always authentic - so we were advised. - The hotel stores are not any more expensive for cigars or alcohol than outside shops. - Definitely take home a couple of bottles of Havana rum ? even if you are not a rum drinker as in Cuba you pay 5.20cuc for a ltr which is around £3.25 and in Asda it is £21 for a regular 75cl bottle!!! So always good to keep in the drinks cabinet! You can buy all of your rum at the airport so don`t worry if you don`t buy any in resort but are restricted to 2 bottles each. - Change notes into coins at the hotel reception for tipping and buying smaller things at the market because 9 out o9f 10 times, they will not have change and you will end up buying loads of things you do not need. - Take your own toilet roll on any tours you do as you will be charged or end up not having any at all. Overall, we really enjoyed the break away and at the price we paid for our holiday we really couldn`t complain so if you are looking for a cheap and cheerful trip to Cuba at a hotel where the staff cannot do enough to help you then I would recommend the Brisas Guardalavaca. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me as I am a travel agent..

        “Paradise!!”
        This place is one of the best I visited in Cuba. The food, service, champagne etc. Impeccable graunds; very clean. Service outstanding. Chambermaid not so good, though. Good entertaimant. Beach OK, some sea weeds though.

        “Average but excellent experience ”
        Upon arrival at the Brisas we were greeted with cocktails and salsa dances, excellent start to the holiday! The large range of resturants and snack bars are brillant, although be careful of too much seafood, however Lobster in any resturant is perfect!!! The market just down the rode is great for cheap souviners to take home, but nothing much else... The entertainment team were lacking as was most of the entertainment, best show and a must see is the water ballet! Overall it was as i had expected from the reviews, my advice would be to come open minded the people do have nothing so tips are always welcome and toiltries and clothing is recieved with hugs and much appreciation! They are willing to help you always! Was overall a lovely holiday :)

        “Great hotel location ”
        Just got back from the Brisas. I would say that the hotel is a little less than an 4 star. but miles ahead of the next hotel the Club Amigo. The local disco and large beach bar have been removed and a large vacant location is all that is left in the area. An new hotel is to be built on the old site beside the Club Amigo but most likely not in our life time. The beach in front of the Brisas is very clean and very safe with only the hotel guests on the beach but watch your personal stuff. We stay on the 5th floor at the back of the main tower and I loved this location because it was central to the pool, dining and bars and the disco. A little music from the disco until 200am. Breakfast in the buffet was very good and lunch in the 24 lunch bar - order the pizza. Supper was hit and miss but I only at the A la carte restaurants 2 X(Italian and Seafood). We rented a car for 2 days and had supper in Holguin at the 1910 Restaurant. The food is a good or better than Toronto. I went suba diving thru the Eagle Ray Dive Shop down the beach on Guardalavaca Beach and went Cave diving at another location about 1 1/2 drive. The wrist bands are very poor and only last a few days and the Security Manager gave me and hard time and I report the issue to the Hola Sun Rep and it was taken care of very quickly the next day. You should always lock up your stuff ie passports, cell phones etc in the safe right away when you first get your room and I also keep my bags under lock and key even in the room when I can not there. I had no problem with the front desk and they were always helpful and friendly. they was always a few bars and restaurants open during the day. I went to a few beach bars down the beach past the run down Club Amigo but the bars now close up around 600pm.

        “Fantastic Holiday ”
        Just returned from two weeks at the Brisas, this was our first trip to the Caribbean and love every minute of it. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. The entertainment team tried there best to entertain the guests but some of the entertainment was boring. The food at the hotel wasn't the best but there was a vast range and we never went hungry as you will find food you like. The locals were always welcoming on trips and was good to see their way of life, and understanding their different cultures. Would definitely recommend it and will be returning. N.B If anyone is planning on visiting Cuba stock up on stationery and soap as this is so expensive for them and they are very grateful.

        “Another fantastic stay ? ”
        just landed on Tuesday morning! What can we say? Got a great room in the villa section! Thanks to Ivan! Had yet another fantastic stay! Cannot find a fault with this hotel. Plenty of space within the complex! We were in the villa section again this year and spent lots of time around and in the pool area. Only time spent in the main pool was to do the diving assessment! The beach is so beautiful! I call it my slice of paradise! Been coming to Cuba for the last 7 years! I'm totally hooked! There is nowhere else in the world I want to go! And if I could..... I certainly would live here!

        Poor Poor

        we strongly recommend brisasguardavalaca
        we have been there many times ,and we first started going it was a delta and under canadian management.we have noticed some changes but still like it overall and would go back as the people are very friendly at the resort and gone out of their way to please us,we do feel they could renovate the villa's as they do smell stale,also their microphone and sound system for their night shows need to be fixed as they were not operating.the food was good at the buffet but the al la carte near the beach had great atmosphere,the girl sang beautifully and the man played well but the food there was only fair.breakfast and dinner there was great.the italian restaurant was great and the guys who worked on the table were a+.we had michael and really liked him.the resort is handy to the down town markets and one can walk via the beach or from the front lobby.

        Brisas Guardalavaca
        I stayed at the Brisas Guardalavaca from October 10 - 17, 2011. This was my 8th or 9th trip to Cuba and 3rd time at this resort, however, the 1st time solo. I flew Skyservice (despite comments from others, I had a good flight both ways) out of Toronto with Signature Vacations arriving at ~ 22:00. At the orientation meeting the next morning, our rep at the hotel told us that we were only the 2nd week of guests since Hurricane Ike and that they had worked very hard to get the Villas section in shape (the Hotel side was closed for planned renovations, and I would presume that now for some major repairs). The villas side, physically, was very similar to my 2 other stays. The room was clean and comfortable and I was fortunate to be in the 1st Villa on the 3rd floor. However, at the morning briefing 3 other guests reported that they had changed their rooms on arrival due mostly to the musty odour (which was more prominent as the rooms had been closed for a longer period than normal). All seemed to be satisfied with their new rooms. The buffet services was no better then before, in that there was little service, unless you were a repeat guest with a history with the servers. The food in Cuba is never very gourmet, but there was lots of choice, a good assortment of fruit and salad, and of course ice cream. They have "stuck" a bar opposite the front desk that wasn't there 2 years ago, this is possibly to make up for the bars that are closed in the hotel. The only services available in the hotel were the Italian restaurant and Coffee bar, and the disco was supposed to open soon. Of the 2 la carte restaurants, I preferred the Italian over the Seafood, mostly due to the server, Enrico, the air conditioning, and the food is a bit better. However, the Seafood has a nice atmosphere with an ocean view (perhaps it would be more romantic with my wife?). As far as the resort goes it is mostly operations as before (good and bad), the main difference of the resort is the loss of the trees and the shade. Brisas Guardalavaca was always regarded by myself and others to have the best shade beach in Cuba. I go for the heat and the atmosphere, not to burn in the sun, but for now there is very little shade on the beach except for a few remaining trees and the new umbrellas they have put up (but we know that happens to an umbrella in the wind!). Our rep told us that they plan to replant some mature trees on the beach, but this will take time. The surrounding area received some damage. The Club Amigo next door was damaged and they were busy repairing the roof of the Atlantico. The main public beach did not seem to have received as much damage as it is slightly sheltered, but then I did not make an investigation of it. The market was up and running, as were the shops in the market area. The "plaza" across the road from the resorts was not open, the stores were not stocked, and the bank was closed. There appeared to be some major damage at the end and back of the plaza (again, I did not inspect it too closely). The snack bar in the front portion of the plaza was open, as were the "Banos". The atmosphere of the Villas is good, except of course if you get a loud, bunch of partiers. Unfortunately, several of the evening shows were rained out, it seemed to only rain just before the show was due to start, but those that went on were good (no lame audience participation shows), and I finally saw the water ballet one night (much to wife's envy). The walkway along the beach is open all the way down to the market area and I defy anyone to show me a better place to witness the sea and night sky then during a full moon in Cuba. Overall, Brisas Guardalavaca Villas is worth a visit, despite the damage that Ike did to the local area. It may take a few months for the entire area to be up to pre-Ike conditions but it makes for a very relaxing and restful venue. Enjoy.

        Our second home
        We have been to the brisas for the last ten year, it may not be really plush, but we are treated like family by all the staff, we have been invited to their homes, and been out socialising with some of them. the customer relations are excellent, the restuarants are good, the beaches are excellent, and we in particular enjoy the live music.
