Guardalvaca, Cuba Delta Las Brisas

Jump to last reply

We are going here in 5 days and would greatly appreciate any insights or comments about the Delta resort and its location. We hear the food isn't great and the water on our beach has lots of seaweed. However, we are still excited! Is the main beach of Guardalavca accessible? Once again thanks for your thoughts and opinions.

    We were at Delta Las Brisas in Jan. of this year. You are right, the food wasnt' the greatest. Hotdogs for breakfast saugage is not my idea of a saugage. But the food was edible, lots of variety. We did not find any sea weed there. The beach was very clean, and the reef about 1/2 mile out is worth the swim. The animators keep you busy if you so desire, and they were fun too. We had taken our teenage boys with us this time, (we have been to Cuba 4 times now) and they loved it. There was always something to do.
    We didn't do any of the tours this trip, so I can't tell you which ones were good.
    The horse back riding was good. It was $4 an hour, and you could take the horse anywhere you wanted.
    The mopeds were $11 an hour, almost brand new the ones we had and we almost made it to Banes, about 30 kms. away. It is a really, really ride. The scenery is great!
    They will have crafts people come to the hotel twice a week, so if you want this, this is the place to buy them. Though don't "buy" them with money. We traded all of the stuff we got with clothes. My husband "bought" 3 masks, jewerly, leather purse, pottery, canes, all this clothes. We had gone to a used clothing store before we left and got a garbage bad full of clothes, in good shape, for $10 cdn. Our luggages were stuffed! For the purse, he wanted $20 U.S. so for that we traded, 2 pants, 2 tops, and a pair of used running shoes. For the pottery, lip stick, nail polish, pair of kids shoes, and a top. Clothing is the best! And for tips, dinky cars are a real hit.
