Greatest customer service ever
Avaliou em 16 de Julho de 2019
Let me start by saying I’ve stayed in several 5 diamonds hotels in Cancun Mexico as well in many 3 to 4 stars hotels all over Cuba. I check in my family to Hotel Tararaco from June 27th till July 7th and had one of the best if not the best vacations ever. the human quality of the entire hotel team was wonderful. A special Thanks to the general manager Santiago who the first day welcomed us like a family member. thank you so much for making us feel like home.

Diamara at the front desk was the best part of this hotel. And the wait staff in the restaurant! The hotel was mosquito ridden, I was eaten alive in our room, the rooms shabby, sheets were clean; no toilet seat, good water pressure though, and hot water, as if needed really cause of the heat, mostly took cool showers. Our TV had a remote but our friends in another room did not...the beach was littered with plastic as well as the sea...soo sad. But the best part of Cuba are the people and Santa Lucia was no exception. I would not go back to Tararaco. But thank you Diamara for all YOUR help!!
Quite small resort

Visited this hotel for a week from 21nd to 29 December 2017 ..
There was long delay at Montreal airport for about 120 passengers ,some with kids,due to technical difficulty of Cubana flight 161 which was timed for 6.40 pm but we boarded around midnight on a different plane.
Check out was smooth at the camaguey airport but playa Santa Lucia is siuated about an hour and half away by bus ride..
After dropping off the rest of the tourists
In various resorts, I being the only one was taken to hotel tararaco which is the last one on the beach strip.
The receptionist called senora Fina guided to my room and it was surprisingly clean including the bathroom but no Seaview..
Woke early for breakfast and later went exploring...the hotel doesn't have a pool, entertainment,loud (no) music,31 rooms only but the beach was full of debris due hurricane Irma where cleaning was ongoing but slow...my inclusion was breakfast,lunch and supper brought from the kitchen but repetitive ..no buffet , snack bar ,drinks.. there's a safe but the charge is 2 pesos per day..
Across the street is a 24 hour shop selling various items that we would find in Canada also.
Money change is at the Centro commercial about 15 mins walk Where there's a beach bar,pizza restaurant and gift vendors..
Nightly entertainment is in 2 discos ..one open and other inside along the main road .the only problem was policemen who questioned the locals especially the girls hanging out with foreigners...I bought an internet card from a nearby resort for 1 peso and used the wifi lasting 1 hour ..
A free excursion to Rancho King was included which was established by americans but now run by Cuban cowboys where we saw bull/horse riding,calf tying ..lunch was included with a visit to a cuban family home to taste some local offerings..
The other is place to visit is Coco Beach which is clean and swimmable.. there's a restaurant there too.. can be reached by horse carriage or taxi costing 20 pesos..had a tasty plate of lobster for lunch in a cuban house for 12 pesos .. made friends with the horse coach driver, Yosbel, who texts me often..
In the little village in front is Marta's restaurant but mainly opens at night..run by a black Cuban woman she serves mostly sea food homecooked for reasonable prices..after being picked up from the hotels everyone passed through the check in at the airport with ease.. the departure was on time with a 45 mins stop over at the Santiago airport..I can only say that the hotel isn't all inclusive but for people looking for some quiet time for a few days... weather was sunny and warm day or night.. there's other excursions available ,if that's your cup of tea, but holasun agent is at nearby mayanabo hotel for the bookings.. overall it was a satisfactory vacation without frills or thrills..
I guess it's worth it, if you just want a cheap and quiet place

This is a typical Cuban hotel. I've stayed at other Cuban hotels so I knew what to except. The breakfast was included and I must say it was pretty good. We had dinner and It was an ok meal but I found the menu to be limited, with only beef and pork available. The hotel is very friendly to both locals and tourists a like. The TV channel selection was great, with a lot of channels in both English and Spanish. The beach is not really usable due to all the sea grass and weeds, but i think this makes it more private, and there is a small swimming area by the pier. The one thing I did not like about this hotel was there was a good sized gap between the bottom of the door and the floor. Because of this I did notice a fair amount of different types of insects in the room. If they could do something regarding the gap this place would be a bit better for tourists.
No organized joviality at this quiet spot.

Right at the end of the hotel strip this is a good value for money option, $30/night, with a nice strip of clear spots to swim at the beach. There are no lounges, or umbrellas and there is a lot of seagrass right along this coast, but this part of the beach is as good as anywhere and is mainly inhabited by locals. The single level hotel has been recently renovated with new bathrooms and a paint job. The rooms are very clean, bright with large windows overlooking the beach or extensive garden and each have private balconies. They have air con, T.V, large comfortable beds but not great pillows. The linen is good and rooms are serviced daily. Breakfast is included, served in the dining room and consists of eggs or toasted sandwich and coffee. We stayed about 10 days, there is little to do in Lucia except relax. This hotel does not have bicycles or internet so you have to beg from the bigger hotels nearby and some are not very friendly. The hotel has a limited menu for lunch and dinner. There are little in the way of services or shops in town but a 24 hour “El Rapido” is over the road and sells cheap pizzas and alcohol. The Etecsa is a short 5 minute bike ride away and internet access is good at $4 and hour.
