“Our stay at Tuxpan Hotel”

this has been my third time at this hotel, It is very relaxing and I am going back in August for my fourth time. The staff are great people and the food is great!

The strong points staff and food The weak points pool to be cleaned during the day (remove leafs and bugs) change the beach rules from topless to must wear bathing suit, the topless option is horrible

“Séjour au Tuxpan février 2015”

le personnel le plus souvent souriant est la seule note positive même si on a la plus part du temps l`air de les déranger. Les chambres ont besoin de rénovation et de nouveau mobilier, le buffet est horrible et inmangeable, seul la langouste du resto de la piscine El Colibri, pour 12cuc, vaut la peine. le casse-croute 24 heures El Delfin a été fermé la plus part du temps lors de notre séjour. L'autre restaurant à la carte, El Rancho est très moyen. Ne payer pas le supplément pour le VIP il n'en vaut pas la peine. Heureusement Varadero est tout près et la plage est magnifique

The strong points plage The weak points le reste

“Avoid Hotel Like the review below says”

As the review below says "Avoid this Hotel". This was our third trip to Cuba over the past couple of years. Our previous two trips we found very enjoyable and thought the places where we stayed were very good. For our third trip we thought we would pay a little more and go with a hotel that had a little better review. This was definitely not the case! As mentioned in the review below, we too were sick from food poisoning and I understand that many people at the hotel were also. There was also construction on the third floor and even though the hotel was less than half full, they put us in rooms on the 4th floor directly above the construction. After complaining several times they reluctantly moved us to the other wing and first floor. This improved on the construction noise but brought other issues of poor plumbing and mold smells. The beach at this hotel was also the most disappointing from our previous visits. Surprisingly it was dirty with garbage and very old beach chairs. The beach was totally neglected. We also found that the daily and nightly entertainment lagged considerably behind the other hotels we have stayed at.

The strong points None The weak points Terrible food and food selection, dirty beach, poor entertainment, birds eating freely in buffet area, hotel is old and outdated.

“Avoid this hotel”

The hotel is pretty small and attention is more personal, however this is offset by very poor quality of food. In addition food is very limited, even simple things like boiled potatoes nowhere to be seen most of the days. Both of us got food poisoning, and had to seek medical attention in Cuba and again in Canada. If you want to risk having diarrhoea, severe stomach cramps, aches all over the body for days on end then go for it. If you value your health then perhaps make other choices. The 0-level rooms have a persistent mold smell. We saw large cockroaches in the bathroom. Moving to 2nd floor helped with mold smell, but still saw cockroaches. In the buffet restaurant birds are freely pecking the bread and sweets - very unhygienic. Cashier is usually trying to overcharge you on the posted exchange rate - you will need to argue to get the posted rate. This is varadero, so subtract about 2.5 stars to get true rating.

The strong points On the beach, has 24 hour bar, good coffee machines, good entertainment at night. The weak points Very poor quality food, almost no daily entertainment, rooms totally outdated and growing mold and cockroaches.

“Return to Tuxpan”

Booked a good last minute deal, decided to go back to the Tuxpan, as we enjoyed the size and service last Feb., didn't need to familiarize with a new resort. Turned out it was the return customer appreaciation week, and got two bus tours, massage and hair appointments and special meals and events throughout the week. This is our fifth trip to Cuba, stayed at 4.5, 4, and 3 star properties. I must say we have had no bad experiences at all at the Tuxpan. A big HELLO to Raisy (public relations mgr).

The strong points The main benifit is the size of the resort and the services provided. Approx. 260 rooms, 2 a la carts, buffet, 3 bars, coffee bar, great beach. Staff that go out of their way to serve and help. Awesome maids, clean common areas and constant upgrades. The weak points One elevator still doesn't work, but everything else is close, so the workout on the stairs is a benefit.

“Not what expected”

Even though they seem to be upgrading, the hotel is not what we expected. One of two pools (with pool bar) was closed and wasn't clean until we left. 'Not enough' people in the hotel shouldn't be considered as an excuse for services and buffet.

The strong points The beach is fantastic, very clean, and beautiful. The weak points No wifi, food not as good, not too many food snack options between meals.

“As always nice vacation at Tuxpan”

There is the third time in row we have our vacation time at Tuxpan. This year we saw to many renovations in main lobby and the paths leading to the beach area. Everything else was like before, including the same friendly staff, fresh food and drinks. I have to thank the staff of the hotel treating us with a ocean view room and the bottle of rum. The room service was great, the room was very clean,thank to Johanna, and everything working well. I think quality versus price is in the best rate for the hotel. My family love going there next year again. We do not like to change the hotel, there we feel like family. Emilio in lobby bar, Tomasso in beach bar or the waiters at the buffet gave us family feeling.Our thanks goes to the staff for the great time we had. This year the concerts at dhe pool stage were much better than other time.

The strong points Stunning beaches, wonderful staff, beautiful grounds, The weak points Maybe some more variety of food.

“Good vacation”

“Hotel Tuxpan”

We loved our week at the Hotel Tuxpan. At first the small room was a bit of a surprise, but the view from the balcony was amazing, the air conditioning worked well, the bathroom was renovated and clean, the beds and pillows were comfortable and lots of hot water. The resort is older, but very well maintained. Beautiful large entrance, lobby and gardens. The most outstanding features of the Tuxpan are the staff and beach. The food is very good and plentiful. Drinks are good also, especially at the Fruit Bar. I plan to go back to the Hotel Tuxpan, for the price, it is an excellent vacation destination!

The strong points beautiful beach very clean resort amazing staff very good food good drinks Fruit bar clean pool lots of chairs renovated bathrooms beautiful views from the rooms 1/2 hour drive from Varadero Airport The weak points small rooms small double beds

“Great beach”

We enjoyed our stay here. The resort staff were very friendly. Rooms were clean, food was better than expected. The beach was fantastic and the pool is large and clean. We had an oceanview room which was nice but the nightly entertainment was louder than expected but only lasted between 1-2 hours (9:30-11:30pm). The gardenview rooms would probably be a quiter option. Overall it was a nice resort. We would gladly stay here again.

The strong points Staff, beach The weak points nightly entertainment noise
