Hotel Gran Club Santa Lucia

The most upscale (if you can use that term) of the five hotels at Playa Santa Lucía, this all-inclusive resort was last upgraded in 2000 and despite its slightly jaded infrastructure will satisfy most guests, as long as you know what you're getting. Let's start with location on a lovely white-sand beach, with even more inviting Playa Los Cocos a 20-minute horse-carriage ride away. But the tiny beach community of Santa Lucía is miles from anywhere, the surrounding scrub terrain has little appeal, and there's very little to see or do beyond the confines of the resort hotels, with the exception of fabulous diving and catamaran cruises.

The budget-focused Canadians and Europeans package vacationers find the huge swimming pool with its thatched bar a great venue for sunning and socializing. And the entertainment (daytime animaciones – "activities" – and evening cabarets) is a cut above the other hotels nearby, thanks to enthusiastic staff. A slightly rickety wooden boardwalk leads to a rustic seafood restaurant hovering atop the gin-clear waters. But the buffet and Italian restaurants don't rise up to international par with their rather bland foods. Unless you're questing to explore the real Cuba beyond the hotel walls, you won't be bored here. There are plenty of watersports, plus activities from archery to tennis (bring your own racket and balls).

The pink-and-white-painted standard rooms are sparsely furnished with modest green bamboo furniture. They're nowhere near up to the hotel's four-star billing! The spacious Junior Suites with their beachfront patios are worth the extra money. Small satellite TVs, telephones, min-refrigerators, and in-room safes are standard. Pack plenty of mosquito repellent! And simple toiletries for the bathrooms.
