TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Roc Presidente Havana
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

... large man, but the room did have a great view over the town. Loretta got lost as she couldn't make it into the ancient cast iron lift, but we met up again on the roof bar where the lift attendant was having a violent altercation with a guest. This enhanced our mojitos no end and I am sure Hemingway would have approved. At lunch we were serenaded on the accordion by yet another local looking for tips. I thought his choice ...
... was also very impressive, seeing endless green agricultural fields in the valleys and spectacular mountains around.
Tourist rip-offs and the difficulty of spontaneous travel
Surely not everything is great in a country and for me there were three major downsides of travelling in Cuba. First of all, Andy and I had come to Cuba without a specific plan in mind of where to go and when. We simply wanted to arrange our travel piece by piece. Unfortunately as most ...
