Olé Playa Blanca is a modest yet very accommodating all inclusive hotel in Cayo Largo del Sur, a paradisiacal island south of the main island of Cuba, with more than 20 km of fantastic beaches.

The resort is not very big, with only 306 rooms spread among the main building and the bungalows. It is not new either and it shows, but some renovations are taking place and the whole place is kept really clean.

The pool is salt water, something many guests appreciate. The beach on the other hand, is narrow with large waves and undertows on some days. It is very beautiful though, with warm waters and fine sands, perfect for walking, admiring the wonderful blue sea while relaxing on a chair, and ideal for guests who love waves.

For those who don´t there are, not far from the hotel, two other stunning and always calm beaches: Playa Sirena and Playa Paradiso. The first is only 10 minutes by bus and another 10 minutes on a boat shuttle, both for free. The ride is a nice excursion outside the resort plus totally worth it, since the beach is amazing! White sand, crystal clear waters, and water sports are offered there for free.

Playa Paradiso is also wonderful and only 15 minute away by taxi (you can also get there by sharing a mini van with other guests).

Both beaches have a lunch bar where one can buy a beer, a mojito or a light meal.

Besides these beaches there are other excursions available at the tour desk, like the sunset catamaran which takes you snorkeling, visiting a natural pool and the Iguana Island + lobster dinner cooked on board while the sun is setting. This all adds to Cayo Largo´s charm plus the hotel offers, of course, a day and night entertainment program with varied shows, snorkeling, diving, and classes like Yoga and Tai-Chi are also available.

There is no disco though, so those looking for party would have to go to the marina. Olé Playa Blanca is really a quite resort, with a relaxing atmosphere and a great staff always friendly and trying their best to make every one happy.

Food wise do expect some shortages, being an island certain things might be in short supply and some times not available, like some fruits and drinks. But there is a main buffet plus a restaurant on the beach and two snack bars, one of them with very nice views to the sea, the other one doubles in the evening as an la carte restaurant. So there are options.
