      ive been to this resort in October 2009

      it was great!

      i think its changed hands since then as its called something different now from when i went - it used to be called occidental grand playa tarquase. so if you are looking for reviews try looking under that name... also some services might have changed!

      it was an average 4 star... we had fantastic service! we went to all the a la cartes, as only one was open per night.... and we enjoyed the service... and we are very open to new food ideas and are not picky eaters...

      the beach is so so in holguin...

      there are a TON of stairs at this resort so keep that in mind

      we were there in low season and went here because we got a super deal, less then 500 each with taxes in!

      i dont remember there being a wedding gazebo and i didnt see any weddings the week i was there - however... i think there were only 250 people at the resort which is 1/8 full

      have you booked already???

      let me know if you have any specific questions

        Thanks Jessie!!!!

         

        We are booked for the middle of Feb.  So far we have just under 30 ppl coming :)  I have been in touch with the wedding coordinator and I like everything she has given me to look over so far. 

         

        So great to hear that you enjoyed your time there.  If I think of anything I will ask

         

        Thanks!!

          for sure

          it was a great place

          i really like holguin

          hopefully it hasnt changed with the change in ownership

          maybe for the better - as we didnt have a mojito the whole time we were there!

          were getting married at melia las dunas in nov

            Ahhh the Melia, that is where we got engaged 

             

            It is a beautiful resort, make sure you hop on the "train" and go to the "town" or it's a $5 taxi ride.  I'm sure they will explain it to you if you haven't been before.  We went one day when it was raining and I have to say I have never experienced Bowling like they have.  Very high tech!!!  We considered going back there to get married but we love cuba so much we wanted to go to a place we haven't been to yet.  The only think I didn't like at Melia is if you have your wedding on the beach you have zero room.  The beach is beautiful but a bit narrow so you are up against the grass area wall and in the middle of all the speedos.  But they do have many other places to choose from as well. 

             

            I have been reading the reviews on the Turquesa and it looks like the new management has really improved things. 

             

            If you want any specifics on Melia, let me know.  I have lots of pics too
