When I was in Cuba I stayed at the Tuxpan Hotel. It is an all inclusive only hotel as are a lot of resort hotels in Cuba. The pictures show that it is a nice but older place and kept clean. I am a one language person and found mostly Europeans there, which can be a bit frustrating when you see someone you want to talk to. Where 35% of the tourists in Cuba Canadians I found this a bit odd. It had two restaurants and a large buffet with 2 grills and cooks. The restaurants were good and the buffet very borring. You were given 4 tickets per week for the restaurants and had to make reservations in at 10:00 AM. Not so good. I read on another review that the hotel will be closed in May for a revamp, including the buffet, so this may change for the better. They have a very nice cabaret that opens at 11:00 but mostly no one goes there and many nights there is no one there. How ever, the bartenders are willing to sell you a bottle of rum for $2! Going on tours I heard talk about how good people were treated at other hotels and felt that I could not say the same for the Tuxpan. When I was on an early morning tour I was told to go to the pool restaurant for an early breakfast. When I got there the attendant said that it was shift change and no breakfast. He went and got me a stale sandwich from the main kitchen. Other people on the tour said what a good early breakfast they got at there hotel. I could not stay the same. There was a good show every night provided by a show company that circulates the other resorts. The pool bar was said to be 24 hrs, but in the early AM they would only get you a drink if they felt like it. Mostly though the staff was friendly and accommodating. I had a good time with the bar staff, especially one night when I was trying to recruit them to start a revolution. I am sorry but I would not recommend to a friend to stay there.
