I booked to go to Cuba with The Holiday Place last year and had one of the best holiday experiences of my life! I stayed in Havana and then moved onto Varadero and I would highly recommend anyone out there to do a similar 2-hotel combination because this trip had it all! Initially I was looking to book with another travel company because my friend had travelled with them before and thought they were the best around; that all changed when I spoke with people who had actually been to Cuba, and all of them said we'd be mad not to use The Holiday Place! They weren't wrong, I stayed completely within my budget and never dreamed of being able to combine different hotels and resorts until I spoke with Damien - the man is highly worthy of praise and I'll be calling upon him again this year for another recommendation!!
Suffice it to say that the hotel in Havana was brilliantly located near the Capital building and the vibe there was unbelievable - a very stark contrast to the miserable faces you see everyday in the UK! We had 3 nights there and then moved to Varadero for an all-inc week on the beach, and I can honestly say that I'm now converted - I'm going to try and fit in another resort the next time around, Damien mentioned Trinidad before but for some reason I said no - well that isn't going to happen again!!
The Holiday Place really were fantastic all around for me, I know it's a matter of opinion at the end of the day but sometimes people can be very quick to shout about bad experiences and not so quick to say something nice!!
