Overall I was a little disappointed by the hotel. I really enjoyed the bellboy. Has very friendly and helpful. There were a few other staff members that were nice but a few were very unfriendly. The room was clean but the hotel did appear to have a bug infestation. I saw a bug that appeared to be a roach in the room. The breakfast buffet was huge. The cleani. The hotel provided me with what I needed a roof over my head, food and a hot shower. If I go back to Cuba

Also, every night we went out in Trinidad Jules would go to pay for entry or drinks, and the guys ...
... service desk outside the gate. As we have no Mexican Pesos we have to pay by credit card for the "visa" which is just a slip of paper - no questions are asked about why you are going or what you'll be doing (pretty good scam). Anyway Amex card gets declined, Ian's Amex gets declined, my MasterCard gets declined, so we decide it must be because it's for Cuba and get out the Barclaycard visa, after 3 more attempts where I have to type in ...
... of Pigs fiasco and various CIA-backed attempts to assassinate Fidel; a Cuban airliner was blown up in midair by US-backed terrorists never brought to justice and more recently the Cubans shot down a couple of light planes flying out of Florida which had been buzzing downtown Havana (which led President Clinton to sign the much-mentioned Helms-Burton act which furthered tightened the blockade and economic restrictions on Cuba) and the Elian Gonzalez affair. During the Bush years, ...
