Where I stayed
Blau Arenal Club
Had to wait almost 45 minutes for a late, ignorant couple that should have stayed stranded with the patrol officer.
It's past 10pm and the thermometer reads +30'C, hot and humid as hell!
Then the non smoking bus trekked almost 2 hours to the resort, so by the time we arrived, Cheryl Lee and I were exhausted and short fused; now we had to check-in in half English, Half Spanish with my ears still plugged! We stood in line, just behind the couple that made the whole bus late; they were ignorant towards the front desk attendant, surely the resort has a dog house somewhere for them? I'm hoping their room isn't next door to ours
Since the resort was not very busy, we got an upgraded room, a junior suite. Cheryl Lee and I exchanged a $100 US each towards Cuban currency, Cheryl Lee got shafted and thankfully I picked up on the cashier's mistake soon enough that she could recoup her money.
We were amazed at the sheer size of our pretty but modest room; an old TV set ans a futton in a small living area.....Cheryl Lee practically just let herself dropped onto the futton, for approximately three and a half minute only to jumps straight back off. Puzzeled, laughing, I asked her what was going on? My poor girl itching and scratching all over, we presumed the futton was housing bed bugs, non of us dared try it again.
