Brisas Guardalavaca


The numbers really add up at this place. You’ve got 6 restaurants to choose from, including Cuban, seafood and Italian à la cartes, 10 bars – pick from the likes of disco, lobby and swim-up varieties – and 2 huge palm-fringed swimming pools. There’s loads going on activity-wise, too – you’ve got things like dancing lessons, watersports and bingo to dip in and out of during the day. Best of all, this place is pulled up against a white-sand beach that’s dotted with hammocks and coconut palms. And it’s around a 10-minute walk from Guardalavaca’s town centre for when you want to explore.

Awesome Resort

Went to this resort on the 5th of April 2014. I have been to Cuba before, but this was my boyfriend's first time to Cuba. This resort is amazing. It is beautiful, and the people are fantastic. Everything is so close together, and there is not a lot of stairs to climb, for those who have a hard time getting around. The food was better than I expected. There are two sections to this resort. The Villa Section, and the Main Hotel. We were in the villa section, overlooking the ocean, and it was amazing. I would recommwend the villa section, as it was quiet, and you got your rest at night. You can use the facilities at both the villa section and the main hotel. The entertainment every night was superb. This resort is very clean, and they bend over backwards for you.There was a donut lady, who came in every day and made donuts, cuban style, and they were great. The Pizza guy was hilarious. There is two buffets you can use, one at the villas and one at the main hotel. We booked the International Restaurant, and it was fantastic. Many many things to do at this resort. The snorkeling was amazing. The beach is beautiful, and plenty of chairs and umbrellas for everyone. I will definately be going back to this resort. I recommend this resort to anyone.More

Couldn't of asked for more

Off we went to brisas for our second visit after having such a good time on our first visit our expectations were high! We booked a junior suite villa on the second floor and there was plenty of room for my lads and myself whiteout feeling cramped. No complaints. Food I feel was good, fresh and well cooked. Never had a bad meal. Drinks. All good, ask and it will appear. New martini bar had an extensive menu with top ingredients to make every martini cocktail you could think of. Give it a try. All bar staff and entertainment staff were amazing, fun and full of energy. Mike, mickyel(?) Joel , Carlos to name a few so fun. My lads scuba dived , did horse riding , drove speedboats , kayaks , peddle boats. Volley ball, water polo, dance competitions , other competitions(lol) basket ball, tennis , we had so much fun, big laughs met great people who made our holiday special and one to remember ! Brisas is such a friendly, inviting place I would have no worries about traveling alone, Go. If you love to get involved, have a good old laugh, and a bit of a party or you want to relax on the beach or pool away from the crowd brisas can do it all. It's so good! So good ! So good !!More

Nice with a hint of retro

Ok, remember your going to Cuba, beautiful people but infrastructure is out dated, remember they don't or cant import goods due to a communist regime, but they make do with what they have. the hotel was clean, the room attendant was very attentive and greeted us everyday with a smile and chit , chat. The front desk was great and the money exchange was open everyday, but it did have some delays due to technical troubles...BEWARE: do not leave loonies or toonies, the banks do not want them and will not exchange them. The same goes towards leaving them as tips, the locals have a harder time than we do....Take mostly small bills, $1000 cash and only spent 320 of it in 7 days..... The food is ok, take soya sauce or peanut butter if you like ti use it....sometimes due to demand you may not get orange juice or ketchup but it will be there another day. a great restaurant fro breakfast beside the pool bar/hamburger place , they make a great omelette. all in all its a place we would stay again!! Oh and the beds are HARD as rocks...I got around this by indulgence of rum based refreshments!!More
