Jodi and Darren, Strathroy - (trip to Cuba)

Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed our trip last week to the Melia Las Antilas resort!  Cuba was definitely a different experience, but we took your advice and kept an open mind which I think was key!

The airport is an exercise in patience.  I think Cuban time is one of the slowest we have ever experienced but gave us time to appreciate how fortunate we are.

The hotel was very clean,  but could use some updating and repair.  The food was fine, and we never had a problem finding something to eat.  It was quiet (no kids) and the entertainment both day and night was great! We could always get lounge chairs at the pool and beach any time of day.  Hotel services such as currency exchange, snacks and bars were easily available throughout the day.  Currency exchange was still open at our 10:30pm arrival and again at 7:30am the day we left! Other guests we talked to felt the hotel was one of the best in Cuba.

The service staff at the hotel was amazing.  Cubans are very friendly and extremely appreciative of the small tips we left.  It is probably the best service we have ever received.

The beach was awesome!  You were right on the money when you said the beaches in Cuba were some of the best!

Unfortunately on the way to the airport our bus was involved in an accident .  Another city bus hit us at a red light.  Everyone was ok, but kudos to the bus driver and tour guide who stayed very calm and quickly managed to get us on another bus and back on our way.  If there is some way for us to pass on positive comments to the tour company please let me know as unfortunately some of our travel mates did not handle the situation as well.

Thank you for once again helping us plan an awesome vacation!
