Tips for staying at Sandals Cuba:

  • Try the striploin at the El Caribe (Cuban restaurant)
  • Do the day trip into Havana (a 2.5 hour drive)
  • Don’t miss the seafood night (it was on Tuesdays) and get there early if you want lobster
  • Bring mosquito repellent for the evening
  • Wifi is strongest in the lobby
  • A key card is required in a slot for the hyrdo to work in the room (even the refrigerator), in order to have the air conditioning on while you’re out either leave one key card in the slot or use a substitute card (ex. Store points card)
  • Exchange rate at the resort was slightly better than at the airport
  • If you exchange money at the hotel count it as many travellers reported underpayments
