    I was at this resort 2 years ago, it was called Amigo Mayanabo at that time - Qualton has since taken it over. The resort has a wonderful HUGE pool! This is a 3 star resort so don't expect much, rooms are very basic but clean. Grounds are nice and clean, staff friendly and the food was good, we didn't have a problem with the food, just don't drink the water. You can book a massage or a facial, there's also bikes...we didn't have to pay extra for these. We booked a snorkeling tour with the hotel, the boat left right in front of our beach, it was wonderful, took you out to the reef, water is so clear, saw many fish and coral. Resort also had lots of activities going on throughout the day, waterpolo, horseshoes, darts, spanish and spanish dance classes, aerobics plus there is a games room. There's not much to see around the resort area, theres a few hotels and shops, take a horse and buggy ride to the other side where theres a beautiful beach - enjoy a 1/2 day here, little store where you can buy a few t-shirts and a beer. Can also take a city tour through the hotel to Camaguey - it was all day, very interesting, saw the tobacco factory, historical sites, pottery factory, etc.
    Not much nightlife in the resort area, there was 2 discos on the main strip that didn't open until 10pm - resort had a bar but it was dead. We also had booked our trip last-minute, for what we paid it was worth it - just don't have your expectations too high. Hope this helps and enjoy your trip.

    Dear D & D. George and I have been to Santa Lucia many times and have spent vacations at several resorts there. The pool is georgeous. I even stayed there last year on my own without my husband so very safe. The beach is shallow if you like to swim and we have several friends there. Olive Thompson who is the Albatour rep. She has stayed at our home here in Barrie and couple of times and Leopoldo Hernadez who is also a great friend and runs the car rental agency. If you need contacts or people to meet or see just e-mail us. I would also appreciate sending a short note in case you see them. Our letters are very friendly with no contraband or political stuff...just how are you and we are fine. A visit to Coco beach is great and the lobster is good but it is a day trip and nothing to do there except swim. But the best trip we ever went on there was a trip to El Salton. The big waterfall with fresh roast pig and a massage and to get there was by way of helicoper. Keep in touch. It is one of the most economical trips to take. Once there you might like to upgrade to something else. We have never had a problem with the water and I have been to Cuba 13 times. But I also take imodium just in case. Travel always with toilet paper as it is in short supply. Adios amigo, Bev
