Holidays in Cuba
I'm writing to thank you all for ensuring that we had a fantastic holiday in Cuba and a fabulous wedding. Both the hotels (Occidentale Playa Turquesa in Guardalavaca and Parque Central in Havana) were excellent. We have not stopped telling our friends and family about the lovely beach, the water sports, the seven swimming pools, riding at the local nature reserve and the experience of swimming with dolphins in Guardalavaca. Our tour guides - particularly Ariel on the countryside tour and Mercedes in Santiago de Cuba were also excellent - open, friendly and very knowledgeable. We learnt a lot.Â
Havana was also beyond all we had imagined - vibrant, lively and great architecture. We loved the vintage car tour and the horse and carriage ride, as well as wandering the streets in the old town.
Our wedding on the beach was brilliant. Both the London staff (you and Gosia and the rest of the team) - and the people in Cuba (particularly Jordi - your Holiday Place rep in Cuba and YamiÂ - the hotel Guest Services Manager) - along with the rest of the staff at the hotel did a superb job in ensuring that everything ran beautifully.
We have travelled alotÂ - and I can honestly say that this was the best holiday we've ever hadÂ - the wedding was just the icing in the cake.Â
I would also recommend The Holiday Place as a tour company - you all went out of your way to make sure that every thing went as planned.
Please pass our thanks on the every-one. We will be coming back to Cuba soon.Â
Only one thing is outstanding - we were told that the wedding certificate would arrive in about a month - and we have not heard anything yet. Could you check to find out if it is one its way?Â
I know some of our wedding pictures have been circulated - but here are a couple more from the holiday.
Thank you all again
Suzie and Tom
