Historical Traveler Reviews SuperClubs Breezes Jibacoa Santa Cruz del Norte
I can't say enough good about this resort. the rooms and surroundings, food, entertainment were superb. It might be a bit boring for people who want a more varied night life but the staff do an amazing job of providing a variety of colourful and energetic shows that are very enjoyable. Try a Spanish coffee in the Piano bar!!
My new wife and I went to Cuba for two weeks in June '02, four days at the Nacional in Havana and 10 Days at Breezes Jibacoa. We felt it was the best holiday we've ever had. I can only re-iterate what others have said about Jibacoa: The Staff are friendly, approachable and professional; The facilities are top notch, scuba diving (not included in price), snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, swimming pool, restuarants (excellent italian, we tried to go as aften as we could, and probably more often than we should've), games room etc.; Accomodation is good too. If anything is not right for you they do their level best to ensure it's sorted (we had a problem with our room's air conditions so they moved us immediately - excellent) I'm sure my wife and I will be returning before long. The staff are not suposed to accept tips so be discreet about it.
Day trips are a must - you must go to havana, what a place. Thank god we went before it's over commercialised (is that inevitable??? hope not)...no McDonalds, Burger King or Starbucks or antything like them - Thank God for that.
What a great time
What a holiday. Myself and four friends visited this resort and had a great time. The staff are excellent, the food is excellent and the grounds are perfect. The only caution is once you are at the resort, there isn't anywhere else to go. At the resort though, there is more than enough to do. The activity staff keep you going as does the rum. Do take the day trips and the hike up into the hills provided by the staff at the resort is an excellent opportunity to see the local wildlife and see how the locals live. Bring second hand clothes, shoes and things, the maids and staff love that and will give you better treatment.
A Dream !
Fantastic food - the CHEF's are world class and the food is incredible. Endless drinks and evening pool parties a 'must attend' - they try to hard to keep everyone entertained. Great beach for lounging - watch out for baracudas 100 yards out ! Fantastic accomodations - they also have some 'exclusive' rooms that are a notch above their best advertised rooms - which is a secret only those who have been there know about - you need to book well in advance to get those 'special' rooms. Tours to Havana a MUST ! Jeep rental to cruise around well priced. Be sure to SECURE valuables in room safes - there have been break ins of rooms from neighboring 'locals only holiday area'. Bring mens aftershave and ladies perfume as courtesy gifts for staff ( slip them a twenty in the package ) - the employees there earn $35 a MONTH and get a bonus of $5 for an exceptional job - so help em out they really work hard to please the guest.
Jibacoa is our fav. Will continue to go back each year. Just all round excellent....good, staff....food, beach, rooms, ....just everything. The best we have been to in Cuba.
Loved Breezes Jibacoa
My wife and I were there the week of Nov.4/02. Jibacoa is excellent for couples and mature adults wishing to experience a comfortable and relaxing vacation. There is also ample opportunity to sightsee and peek at Cuban culture. A trip into Havana is a must. On and off the resort the people are friendly, and one can get by with little or no Spanish. We had a great time and would consider returning for a longer stay.
Absolutely gorgeous resort, surrounded by lush green hills. Beach area superb. Food excellent, accommodations very comfortable and clean, staff very friendly and hospitable. No complaints here!
What a beautiful place
We visited Breezes Jibacoa on October 14 for a week. I had the most amazing time of my life. I've been to many places like Mexico, DR, Jamaica, Venezuela and so far Cuba and Mexico are the only ones worth going back to.
The hotel was beautiful, rooms were really clean, the staff was great, very friendly and very hard workers, the disco was a lot of fun.
The drinks were excellent and the food was incredible, specially at the italian restaurant. I am planning to go bacl in January because one of my friends that I met at the resort is getting married at the resort, so any opportunity that I get to g back to that hotel I will take it. The hotel is definetely a relaxing place, and the cappucinos at the lobby bar are perfect to complement that relaxing day after a lot of night partying.
A great place to go if you want nothing to do; and if you want to see the same people day in and day out.
The hotel and the grounds were beautiful and the rooms were very nice.
There was absolutely nothing nearby the hotel. Havana was an hour and a half one way and Varadero was an hour and a half the other way.
I would not recommended this resort to young people who want to go out and have a good time. In the disco you'll only find this hotel's guests and staff.
The staff however was very young and friendly. If you want a tour, ask the staff... they'll get it cheaper than the hotel would.
The food was great! It was all fresh.
The beach was not a white sand one, so the water was dark but the snorkelling was excellent. Also take advantage of the sailing.
Wow,Was it great.
This trip was not only one of my best. The weather was great and the staff wonderful. A nice change from being overrun by comercial crap and americanism. This should be seen and enjoyed before the states get there hands on it. We went for a wedding and you couldn't have asked for anything in a finer fashion. Right on the shore with a large pool and all inclusive. The entertainment staff did an excelant job about 24 hours a day. Would I go back??? Well if I could have found an Interc I would not have left. Food,weather,quality rooms,clean beaches,good cigars and fine international food all to be had onsight. What a wonderful stay in every way.

... of the city. Lunch was at a nearby sort of cafe/bar where we had 2 beers and a meal for £2 (rice, fried plantain and fried egg).
The afternoon was spent going around the city on city tour. The bus was interesting - many of the seats were broken. The tour guide mainly spoke in Spanish with some English in Spanish intonation so we still didn't understand a word she was saying. At the top of ...
... we had lobster in salsa and supposedly a chilli lobster with the rice and beans plus avocado, cucumber green beans and tomato, with fresh lemonade and a Cuban rum drink, possibly some sort of cocktail. Guitar music and singing, with a Swedish woman tourist giving a song as well. Plenty of dogs around again and what we thought were two bantam chickens. A quick visit to a printing place next door, doing lithographs. We made our way back to the Plaza ...
Friday 4 July Had a Havana tour in a fire engine red 1948 Buick convertible! Nearly two hours. Went to a Cigar factory, past the zoo, parks, cuban missile display and remnants of shot-down US plane from 1961, around the waterfront (Malecon)... Saw lots of backstreets and all the usual sights. We all got sunburned in the car, but 'twas well worth it. Noticed three warships just off the coast. I assume they are always there or about, or maybe we are about to get revolutionised; or is ...
Today is just as hot as the previous days. We wandered into the Centro Historico in search of a Wifi network. This has proven to be difficult to find. Some of the hotels have a terminal where you can log on to access the internet at a charge. Wifi on the other hand, the thing we take for granted, is a bit more elusive. It seems that only a handful of places (read higher end) in Centro and Centro Vieja that have Wifi. So, at a cost of $8 CUC (similar to NZD) we ...
... me to the Balneario, a large spa building where the thermal waters are still pumped into pools, “just like Banff,” he said. Maybe in its glory days it did resemble Banff, but now the facility is spooky and looks abandoned. One pool still has water pumped in from the spring, and that’s where I was taken, instructed to stay there 25 minutes and no longer. Under the glare of one fluorescent light tube I looked around at the paint peeling off the ...
