Probably wont Barcelo Solymar

Barcelo Solymar Cuba.This was probably one of the worst vacations i have taken in my life. there were many negative things on and off the resort that happened, but i will only review the hotel experience. Keep in mind i am a very patient and understanding person but there is a limit. Anyway we arrived at the hotel a bit later at night and to a very long check-in line This was expected since i read in the reviews that this would happen. so after about half an hour in line we got to our room. We were satisfied with the quality of the room aesthetically, but then after further exploration we found out that the shower door rusted so bad that it fell off once we opened the bathroom door. the balcony door was broken and would not close and the one thing that i wanted in a room was not there. AIR CONDITIONING. This is Cuba so at night it would be around 30 Celsius. we immediately went to reception to ask if they can fix it. They were quick in calling someone on the phone to fix and said there would be someone to fix it in 10 minutes. we gave them a tip for their help because we like to tip for good service. well 10 minutes turned to an hour and an hour turned to 2 hours. well you can imagine nobody showed up and it was around midnight and decided to sleep in the room sweaty and super uncomfortable. The next day we went down to ask what happened and they said there was nobody available to fix it and we couldn't switch rooms. once i heard that i knew this week would be terrible. So for the whole week it was scorching hot and we even opened the balcony door and it helped a little. but mosquitoes feasted on our blood and i am not exaggerating we got dozens and dozens of mosquito bites. The food at the hotel was reviewed to be bad and i am definitely not a picky eater but it was bad. I don't know they can mess up cooking rice, pasta and potatoes, you literally just have to boil it. So even though we got all inclusive at this "4 star" hotel we ate off resort every lunch and dinner. To be fair the breakfast was decent and had the most flavor, but we rarely were awake for those times. Now the staff, the staff were very polite and were super attentive but they had an ulterior motive. Every staff member from reception to security to waiters were looking for tips. If you did not tip them after they helped you they would not even look at you for the rest of the week, even if you made eye contact with them they would just ignore you. The good part of this vacation was that beaches which has nothing to do with the hotel. the pool was pretty good but the best part were the people on and off the resort. My group and I made many friends on the resort sometimes because of the negative things we had in common and the locals off the resort were pretty polite. All in all i would go back to Cuba but probably no to this hotel..
