Le Carisol is one of the main club-hotels in the Oriente. Plenty of space and good atmosphere and service will compensate for the distance from Santiago de Cuba town.

    Location 10.0 /10

    Le Carisol is on the coast, 30 miles from the Santiao de Cuba, on the foot of Sierra de la Gran Piedra and in the middle of the Bacanao park, classed as a reserve of the biosphere by Unesco. A shuttle links the hotel to the town centre.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The rooms are spacious and simply furnished. They have air conditioning, television and have bathrooms with shower. They don't have direct telephone, you have to pass through the switch board. One should note that telephone calls in all hotels in Cuba are very expensive.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Built in 1990 and undergoing renovation since 1999, the club hotel is in 4 buildings on 2 levels around a swimming pool and 45 family suites in about ten small houses scattered around the park. The style of the buildings is quite standard. The stong point of this hotel is its surface area, its well kept tropical garden and its beautiful swimming pool. Careful: two or three houses are very close to the open air night club. Probable insomnia.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    A restaurant-buffet (2 large rooms, one overlooking the garden) proposes a variety of dishes at each meal: meat, fish, vegetables, grilled meat and Cuban specialties. If you feel like a bit of quiet from time to time you can go to the la carte restaurant which is not as busy as the buffet.

    Beach 8.40 /10

    Like all the hotels' beaches in the region, the Carisol beach isn't one of the island's most beautiful beaches. However, it does have all the characteristics of a postcard beach: cristal clear waters, golden sand and palm trees. It is also equipped to make you even more comfortable. Unlimited drinks and deckchairs.

    To know

    It is an ideal place for family holidays. This French mark in the Lider Maximo takes nothing away from its Cuban charm. The hotel preserves its local heritage. The rest of the staff is Cuban.$$ Bands play salsa music several times a week and expert barmen serve rum and mint flavoured cocktails in the evening. When we visited in July 2000, several suites were being renovated.

      The Melia Santiago is a modern town hotel, offering all the usual services (or almost) of an international hotel. A business world lightened with a family seaside resort atmosphere.
