"Lovely country with a wonderful vibe. Bright and colourful as seen on TV and in films. Lots of open land and greenery. Friendly people. "
"Arriving at the airport and their immigration clearance and luggage collection was chaotic and dampens the start of your holiday, especially after a long flight. Public toilets are horrendous."

"red flagged beach for first week but the cubans plus accomadation were great "
"Havana was great, the atmosphere and the 1950's cars and buildings."
"I love the laid back feel- food average , limited but you get waht you pay for"
"The place we stayed was nice but it was not a 5 star, we had a broken wardrobe and cockroaches in our bathroom. To get to the outside shower you had to go into the property which in my opinion defeats the purpose of an outside shower. Also it was obvious the place had been hit by a hurricane and it was not 100% up and running although we had been guaranteed this. Overall a disappointing honeymoon."
"Havana was lovely and a great day out. We were warned not to undertake any non First Choice excursions as they would not be covered under their insurance, also they could not guarantee their quality. "
"when you go on outside tours you have to remember the people are poor, you have to tip, and at the end of your holiday if you can leave clothes and anything they can use eg: soap, also take sweets with you, on average they are very lovely people"
"the holiday was everything any one could ask for the cuban pepole are so very friendly"

"Enjoyed Havana and the history and culture was impressive"
