Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled on a pristine beachfront, Aston Costa Verde Beach Resort has earned praise from many travelers for its idyllic location, perfect for snorkeling and close to local attractions. Guests consistently commend the resort's cleanliness, from the immaculate rooms to the crystal-clear beaches. While upgrading to club level is seen as valuable, there are some concerns regarding unexpected costs. Service at the resort is often lauded for the staff's friendliness and efficiency, although there are occasional lapses. The vibrant atmosphere and range of activities contribute to a lively experience, yet noise can sometimes be an issue. The resort's rooms receive mixed reviews, with some finding them to be clean and spacious, while others mention noise, outdated decor, or cleanliness problems. Amenities, especially the beach and pools, are repeatedly celebrated by guests.

Had a wonderful vacation. Really enjoyed the food at the buffet, the staff was excellent and beach was beautiful. We upgraded to the the "club package" so the room was quite nice, very clean and further away from any noise that might keep us awake at night. Was worth the cost of the upgrade. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Special thanks to bartenders Michel and Jerry at Mojito swim up bar at the pool for always keeping us stocked up on Cola Lite either at the pool or on our way to the beach each day!
There was a lengthy power outage on our last day, but not the fault of the resort. This was an outage that occurred throughout a large portion of the province of Holguin. These things happen from time to time in Cuba, so be prepared and be patient with the staff!

Flew westjet out of toronto. Arrived feb 13 to March 13 (28 days). Had the club package. We were in building 18 no issues with room. Would be nice to have sign no maid service needed. Went to club restaurant only for breakfast and dinner a few times very good. The club bar was a must evenings with Eduardo who likes to chat and makes great drinks. The food overall was decent we did experience the ups and downs never hungry. Missed more selection but we don't care. Brought snacks jam and peanut butter. Staff are amazing too many to mention. Pools clean ocean spectacular. We brought snorkel stuff but can get by pool bar. Resort could use better entertainment we loved saxophone player only 1 night out of 28
Ballet pool show great. Other bands did not care for. Could use better communication what hourly activities are and where. Had some special a la cartes we were not aware of would have booked them. We did go off resort via taxi $40 canadian to restaurants in rafael freyre worth it. Tulipan yeniboom Los mello pizza. Not much in guardlavaca now market and few restaurants open but double decker bus fun at 5 canadian per person. Staff appreciate any tips in canadian you don't have to tip each time. In usd or change canadian to their pesco with a Staff member better rate. Staff appreciated the gifts we brought security staff the towel and chair guys life guards etc. Even if you give them few pesco. 100 pesco is like $1 canadian dollar. We have friends off resort get out and experience cuba. Would be good to have the beach buffet open or some sort of meals near beach versus going to snack bar or buffet. Currently only 500 guests here weekly so low. We plan to return. Don't hesitate to book

We arrived at the resort at 9pm and settled into are rooms by 9:30, thanks to the quick service at the front lobby desk and guest service attendants. By 9:45 we were at the snack bar having drinks and laughs with friends and had a couple sandwiches to get us by until our awesome morning breakfast buffets. The service was always top priority from the Aston staff from beginning to the end of our 10 day vacation.
The front desk always looked after any of our concerns which were few, mostly just loading up our unlimited wifi connection. The manager Mesz whom l was calling Maxx for almost the entire time(lol) was totally awesome and worked endless hours improving any and every condition around the resort. Mecz was always looking for input to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Guest service attendants were always available 24\7 giving you lifts around the resort. The cooking staff, waitresses and waiters were very friendly, we sparked up some great conversations and they made our meals that more enjoyable. The entertainment crew always made sure there were pool or Beach activities, water aerobics, volley ball, bocce ball, dance classes and more, shout out to Edward Garcia Serrano for his 4hours of Spanish lessons and are conversations were genuine and divertida. The bar staff were always pleasant and would their hardest to make you a drink you would enjoy, l would recommend getting a couple bottles from duty free just in case you can't get what you want. All in all we had a great 10 days at Aston and Hasta Pronto Aston

I liked the layout of the resort and the staff were very friendly. Beach is a beautiful long walking beach, lots of loungers no matter what time of day you go.

There are food and drink shortages, they do the best they can with what they have. I had club upgrade and found that worthwhile for small upcharge.

I arrived late on a Sunday and on Wednesday morning my room still had NO water. No water to wash hands, shower or flush the toilet. Even at that point they wanted to send a technician but when I insisted, they agreed to send a bellman instead and I moved rooms.

Suggestions to the resort

A bit of staff training and follow up will make a big difference.

Check the guest rooms and insure there is toilet paper, the fridge is plugged in and that there is at least 1 water in the fridge, give WIFI codes at check in instead of having to go back to front desk .

Check the public toilets for soap/toilet paper. Club pool toilets had no soap for 5 days, often the only paper left was the cardboard insert.

Hand sanitizer at main buffet never filled. Check the heat lamps, I think it might just be regular lightbulbs. Unless I got something cooked specifically for me everything was cold from the buffet trays.

This was our third trip to Cuba, the first near Varadero (****), the second at Cayo Coco (*****) and this place! The room assigned to us was located above the lobby & lobby bar; it was noisy due to loud music at night and workers arriving in the early morning. It cost us 300 US$'s to relocate to a quiet "Club" location for 10 nights!
Prior to our arrival, an email stated that repairs to the main pool would complete Jan 31st, the actual date of our arrival; it did not open until more than a week later. During that period, resort personnel stated on a Facebook group that "workers" were doing a great job and weather was causing delays; in fact, there was only one man working on that huge pool!!!
The food choices rarely varied, from the buffet to the a la carte restaurants, with chicken being the protein. No bacon or eggs until the arrival of special guests, that being 400 country music fans and numerous others for a softball tournament!
The septic system for this resort has not been sized for the increased traffic due to special events or the opening of more guest buildings. The washroom in the main area was closed off, water flooded the area & the stench of raw sewage permeated the air. Similar complaints have been made by guests in the buildings (26 & 27) in newer area, farther from the lobby.
The only really good comment that I can make concerns the beach which is gorgeous and the staff who are all very friendly and helpful. But then, grouchy people get no tips!

Dear Cobourg Thank you very much for taking a moment of your time to share your experience, we are very sorry for not having met your expectations, in relation to the room since your reservation was a standard section all are located near the central area which also allows you to enjoy the nightly shows from the comfort of your balcony, we have schedules to not hinder the rest of our guests, and as indicated we also have the plus section which is a little further away with additional cost, In relation to the pool I myself was accompanied by 15 people more, the same weather did not allow us to have it ready in time each agency was informed of the situation. Regarding the variety of food is no less true that we went through a situation during your stay we had chicken, beef, sin, lobster, sardines, we suggest you always approach our public relations bureau we are here to assist you. Cordially yours, Rosa Noemi de La Rosa General Manager

If u book with sunwing , the do false advertisement.. if u pick hotel room with the picture showing there on the booking , your not getting that room .. the room u get is in main building the rooms are a dump ( curtains hanging off the rods, bathrooms- old and extremely dated furniture extremely dated, tiles in ceiling hanging out etc) just plain disgusting! Went to see rep and told them it's false advertisement on website to what u get for room, fortunately they moved us to building 27 , 2nd floor close to pretty much everything. The package also says 1 bottle of water daily with 2 beers and 2 cans a pop.. called the front desk 3 times in one day for water, said rhey will bring , didn't get anything ! And they also said u get 2 beers only in fridge on first day arrival no days after! LA a Carts only 2 open .. bars - beers always on tap, nut not much other to drink in mixed drinks peach slushy mix or pop, that's about it for rum. Coffee/ cappuccino was good sometimes stronger then other times depending on who makes it! Main Buffet- breakfast good always eggs, bread is always no fruit at all and ice cream every dinner. Lunch & Dinner pretty much same food everyday .. chicken and sometimes pork, no fish .. no burger hotdogs fries potatoes cheese not much either. If u can eat this everyday every meal you'll be ok, unfortunately for me it's was not!
The service isn't good at all if u tip or not.. your getting the same service! They pretty much stand around with their trays and look, u have ti keep asking for something to drink! 12tg visit to Cuba and I haven't ever experienced this ever! They don't seen friendly Cubans anymore, the pandemic has ruined cuba hospitality we have always enjoyed sadly! The double Decker to the market is $5 per person US $ and you pay by creditcard only. Even the market doesn't have much and the gifts you buy are expensive now.
First trip to Holguin, unfortunately I will not return to this part of Cuba.
If the food/ drink shortages not bother you then keep going, it has swayed me away from paying the overpriced cost 😔...even after 12 trips here in cuba a place I loved to vacation, that left me saddened and disappointed.
But then again, do what's best for you 😊

This is my second time returning to Aston and already I can't wait to come back. This resort offers the best location on Pasquero beach for snorkeling. Masks and snorkels are available at the beach hut but I brought my own and spent hours daily snorkeling. So much to see! Good variety of food and drink despite current shortages in Cuba. Spacious, clean and comfortable rooms. Front desk staff are lovely and always helpful. Gardeners had fresh coconut drinks available daily and the grounds look beautiful. Returning guests were treated to a delicious Caribbean lobster dinner where I met the GM Rosa, a very nice lady who genuinely cares about guests being happy. All staff were great but one stood out to me above all others and that is Alejandro from the entertainment team. Alejandro remembers everyone's names and everyone loves him. He speaks very fluent English and engages with all guests, ensuring that they are fully enjoying their holiday. Since he knew how much I love snorkeling, he arranged for a morning snorkeling activity at the beach and myself and other guests had a lot of fun in the water with him as he pointed out and identified different fish for us. I've attached a photo of Ale snorkeling. Aston is truly lucky to have this fine young man on their team.

Rosa, if you're reading this, my only complaint is about the use of filtered tap water in drinks. It has a very unpleasant odor and taste right now. All of the other guests that I spoke to said the same thing. I had to make sure to only drink the bottled water from my room. I hope that this is corrected by the time I visit next.

Stayed from Jan 28th until Feb 5th (still here).

First off , the mojito pool bar and beach bar staff are amazing ! Big shout out to Michel, Jerry and Fernando! They made our stay the best I could be!

The room: clean, and just as pictured!

We booked the club superior! the room is great everything works with no problems at all, but our block (37) is far from everything but quiet if that’s what you like just a long walk. I’ve heard bad things about the rooms that are in the main lobby by most of the guest here (outdated, not working, no safes) but the blocks (yellow building are great) , fridge filled everyday, clean room, no complaints here! They are quick to fix if you need anything though!

The restaurants: hit or miss

The buffet is always the same thing for lunch and dinner but good none the less, with Cuba being in the state they are in there is no fries, hamburgers, hot dogs are scarce but have them once in awhile , no pasta, a lot of rice, pork and seafood. They usually have some form of “ketchup” but this year only mustard! Breakfast is good, we always waited for a fresh omelette and they’re great!

The 24 hour snack bar only has sweet potato chips and ham or tuna sandwiches most times but doable!

The club house has breakfast, lunch and dinner as an eat of the menu option and we ate there a few times and was good but sometimes slow.

We didn’t try the free a la Cartes but heard the Italian is the best by far!

The beach: no words just wow.

Beautiful , not to big but not small perfect for everything , amazing snorkelling but bring your own gear as they don’t offer rentals, tons of fish to the left next to the coral shore but to the right is a a crystal clear beach! Free small catamarans, paddle boats, Kayaks, and windsurfing easy to book! Always able to find a chair and towel exchange is right there!

Entertainment: not bad, but not great

They try their best and don’t get me wrong it’s good but it’s just wow ! Best by far was water ballet but if you don’t sit right on the edge of the pool you cannot see much!

Now, for a one last thing need to add!
If you’re looking for a nice day off the resort with a local you need to meet George (Jorge) he works at 5he beach , usually helping move the chairs or the life guard ! and this man and his family are amazing! He took us for the day for seafood and wow not only was the food great but just to meet him is a pleasure, he has classic 57 chev that he took as in showed us the town and the local super market and family we had an amazing time ! He does not ask for things just enjoys the company!

We went as a group of 18 and everyone had an amazing time. The staff work hard to keep everything stocked and working order. The washrooms were kept clean and any problem seemed to be fixed instantly. Considering the limitations on the island for food the buffet and restaurants were excellent. The beach was beautiful and the water was so warm it was amazing. They have some beautiful little trees for shade that I really enjoyed. We paid a little extra for an ocean view room and it was 100% completely worth it.

Booked this trip with my adult daughter to return to the resort we went to 13 years ago. Had a great week. We had remembered how fantastic the snorkeling was so took our own gear, and underwater cameras and were not disappointed. The sand is beautiful, powdery and light, except you should bring water shoes for out further as it is rocky where the best fish are. There is no need to go down early to secure shade, lots of trees if you are too late to get a palapas. Such beautiful turquoise water, and the sun sets over the water. Amazing!

Wonderful staff. We had an issue with power one night, and with our air conditioner another, but both issues were fixed within half an hour. Leo at the beach bar is super friendly. Also found the reception staff friendly, easy to talk to and very accommodating, as were the staff at the pool bar. The aquatic show was fantastic, the best entertainment of the week. It was obvious that the animation crew (in the Pluto and Tweety costumes especially) put a lot of energy and enthusiasm into their job. The lady that makes the omelettes every morning was always smiling and pleasant even though I saw her there for all three meals some days. Long days, hot work.

The beds were very comfortable and appeared new. Shower was great, fridge was always stocked. The safe worked well and was easy to program. We paid for the late check out, which was worth it as our flight was delayed so we did not leave the resort until 9:40pm.

On the downside, we had bought a pool view room, but were further away. It wasn't a bad room, though, so I didn't try to change it. Probably for the best as it was quieter where we were (27 block). Bathroom could stand some paint and a new toilet seat, and we could hear our neighbors, but other than that it was great. None of that lessened our great week. I am thinking that most resorts are probably rebounding after covid, so cut some slack on the limited buffet. We did not go hungry and it hit the spot. The coffee is fantastic!

My one regret was not bringing more Canadian cash. Although you can tip with loonies and twoonies, the staff like to trade them in for bills, so next time I would take more to help them out. Also, the vendors only deal with cash, and there is no bank on the resort to get more. We didn't want to venture off the resort.

The closing was only for 2-3 weeks. They are just replacing broken tiles. It is the original family pool at the main hotel. The larger, newer pool is open. Supposed to be ready for end of month.
