    The architecture is modern and colourful. Very large facade in blue and yellow with a huge glass roof. The hotel has one central building built in 2002 and 120, 1-story bungalows, very colourful also dating from 2001. The reception hall has a very high ceiling and a curtain in ivy giving it a tropical greenhouse look. Outside, two pools among the palm tress and a restaurant a bit higher up with three masts on which blue sails are hoisted.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    2 buffet restaurants (the one near the pool has a good selection whereas the other is in a more pleasant setting, in front of the sea) and 3 à la carte restaurants (seafood, Italian and Creole) for the delight of people who enjoy good food. The "lindamar" is open morning, midday and evening with a copious buffet in a large yellow and orange room. The Tropimar offers Cuban food for dinner. The "sol y arena" prepares fish and seafood based cuisine and " Los corales " offers Italian cuisine for dinner. Two snack bars are also available for morning, midday and evening with grilled meat and brunch. The one that's in a tent is very pleasant and entertainment is often organised.

      The architecture of Arenas blancas isn't very welcoming and is outdated. It's just a block of concrete with few openings.

      Superb hotel, deserves its 5 stars. Lots of original entertainment organised so that even people who don't usually enjoy group games will enjoy themselves. Everything is perfect and the spaces are well arranged except maybe its Mediterranean restaurant and the narrow beach.
