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.

getting better all the time
Just returned from are 8th trip to Brisas and it just gets better all the time. Some reviews stated that guests who weren't returning guests where left out. Just wondering if they forgot the meal on the beach was for everyone or did they just party to much and pass out somewhere. The meals for breakfeast with the music was for everyone, as well as the daytime party on the beach with the band in the water on stage as well as the bar in the ocean.Is smoking outside not aloud in England. I don't smoke and don't see anything wrong with people smoking outside. The resort has come a long way in just a few years as you could smoke everywhere before.I found a few flys in the buffet and have also found a few in my dining room at home. Yes we have flys in Canada.Brisas keep up the good work. Just love the new pools in the villas and can hardly wait till Feb 2014 to see the finished product. 920 Cliff and Franny r we will see you guys there in Feb as well as are many friends from England who will be returning as well.Mike and Betty she you at the pig roast and don't bring the snow from WinnipegMore

If you arnt canadian dont bother going....
Overall great weather for 2 weeks. .met great friends..food ok..rooms ok only due to the maid she was brill and left it lovely and clean...beach was lush. drinks we're ok when you got asked if you wanted one and not ignored by certain waitresses and waitors. Buffet restaurant was always full of flys around your table!!! the 3 day anniversary and returning guests party did get on alot of peoples nerves because everybody felt ignored and left out! We was not even aloud to use the loo when the returning guests had there meal..they blocked off the path with a plant pot so you couldnt get passed. Entertainment staff were very arrogant!! Omlette man in the buffet hall was also arrogant..some waiting staff were lovely...roberto did the best pizza...antonia was the best drink maker at the pool bar and such a nice bloke!!! we also shan't be back for the 20th anniversary.....More

it is what it is!
Spent two weeks in this hotel which is in the main ok, the weather, the setting and the company made the holiday. We did enjoy our time there, a long awaited holiday, however, there are a few points which the hotel really doesnt make the grade. We enjoyed the opportunity to enjoy a holiday with the entertainment team, as surely they were on holiday with us! The team were frequently sat drinking alcohol during the day, the idea of rousing guests to join in was to shout for 5 mins about the next entertainment slot then not actually do anything. The lady who's incessant whining about "Brisas Guardalavaca" over the loudspeaker who then allegedly taught dance lessons was in no way a dancer and when joined by 2 young kids chose to ignore them rather than involve them in the activity. The late night dance competition descended into farce when it rained and the competition was taken to the "nightclub" ...... 15 mins later the staff actually opened it then another 10 mins and they switched on the air conditioning and a further 10 mins saw a member of staff actually appear behind the bar!.... Which was all the time it had taken for one of the entertainment team to finish his activities with one of the dancers in the DJ box, before walking out dressing himself. The non smoking nightclub was a bit of a pain as 3 of our four strong party smoked and had had to go outside every other day..... though when the entertainment team lit up we decided we could to... much to the displeasure of the bar man who reprimanded us!, it also seemed fair game for the staff to drink from glass around the pool area.... no plastic cups for them! Now 920Cliff your response to Zaphod..... well if you werent canadian and a "returning guest" ,for three days you were clearly a 2nd class citizen as 'they' celebrated the 19th anniversary of brisas guardalavaca, 19th anniversary of brisas guardalavaca, 19th anniversary of brisas guardalavaca, 19th anniversary of brisas guardalavaca, 19th anniversary of brisas guardalavaca,....and on and on. For the returning guests who enjoy the whooping and hollering and the free (i hope for their sakes) t shirts.... you truly have found a place for yourselves, in Cuba, and in life!, for those others, I imagine, after your experience, like us, will not be returning for the 20th anniversary of brisas guardalavaca. The food is ok, though in the "a la carte" restaurants what you order may be far from whats delivered, the rooms are dated, the air conditioning is temperamental at best, the bathrooms are in need of refurbishment, the entertainment team needs to realise its the customers who are on holiday. My comment to friends was continually....."its so near to being good... it just needs a little bit of care" Overall, as i began...it is what it is! i would neither recommend nor attempt to dissuade anyone wishing to visit. Oh and by the way.... DO NOT expect to be able to obtain a Mojito in any bar within the complex!! But then why would you expect a bar in Cuba to have the ingredients to make one!!More

Beautiful place, Beautiful people
Myself and my boyfriend travelled to Brisas on 14th November for a short but amazing one week. I was slightly worried before arriving due to some of the not so kind reviews on here but from first stepping into the reception area, i knew they were all talking rubbish! I'm not sure if people really understand that they are in Cuba and that for 'luxury' they should be expecting to pay so much more when in such a beautiful place as i can honestly say there were very few problems. The location is amazing and inspires you to get up as early as possible for a morning stroll on the beach right on the hotels grounds. Seeing such lush grounds and natural wildlife was a pleasure. There are always friendly staff to chat to if you make the effort and you always feel very safe there. The hotel is dated and the rooms are not up to the standard of a top hotel but who spends that much time on there anyway when there is so much to see! I am a fussy vegetarian and can honestly say that there was something for me to eat at every meal. Obviously there is repetitiveness but it's an all inclusive buffet so you should know what to expect. The staff serving you will go out of their way to assist, even if you're not throwing the tips around like a millionaire! We always had good treatment and nice conversations with all of them we interacted with. Outside the hotel, there are a few people who will ask for things or try to sell you cigars but a quick 'No Thankyou' is all you need. We made friends with one of the groundsmen who showed us pictures of his daughter and didn't ask for anything. We left a nice big goody bag for him and his family as they needed the things more than we did and the maids probably get most of the leftovers from guests. We are both 28 year olds who like the occasional party but prefer to stay away from the vomit covered magaluf style of fun! There is a good choice of alcohol and fun to be had but a special mention needs to go to the Havana Rum bar on the roof top terrace. Amazing cocktails but be careful of the strong content if you wan't to survive the next day....as i failed to do on one occasion! haha. I could talk all day but to sum things up.....if you want a decent place to sleep, in a beautiful location, with friendly people all around then choose Brisas. If you expect the Ritz then cast your search and purse strings much further! Nicki x P.s - shout out to the lovely Canadian group of Iris, Kelly and Ray who we also made friends with!More

Nice vacation at Brisas
Vacationed at the Brisas Nov 23 to Nov 30th. Researched the resort prior to booking and knew what to expect. It was better than expected. It was a family vacation for five, two of which were children. We initially had rooms on 5th floor oceanview and 1st floor garden view. The 1st floor gardenview was dingly and in need of repair. The next day we were cheerfully upgraded at no extra cost to a villa. I was pleased with my room in the Hotel section on the 5th floor. it was very clean and modern and everything worked!!! The villa room was great with lots of room. I have been to Cuba 6 times and the food at the Brisas was better than average. The buffet had a good selection. The hot food stations for eggs, pasta and meat was great. Try the bannana flambe and crepes as well. The a la cartes were dissaponting, the Italian was poor, the International average. The seafood was great with the live entertainment from the wait staff. Overall the staff was great and very nice. Special shout to pool bar Carlos and William, Roberto for awesome pizza and Maryellanis at the Buffet. Pool and beach area were great and very clean. i would go back to Brisas again.More
