Okay so we landed in Cuba yesterday afternoon, and i must admit when we saw the airport I got a little bit worried because it looked so small and tiny. But it was alright. We got through quickly and the transport to the hotel didn’t take to long so that was lucky. I’ve got to admit though when we arrived in the hotel yesterday i was knackered, I think it was because of the 5 hour time difference, its actually really hard to get use too! But after a quick nap we went down into the buffet restaurant and grabbed some dinner.I’m not a huge fan of buffets because i much prefer a sit down meal when you all eat at the same time but hey ho! There are about 5 al’acart restaurants here though so thats good.
When we arrived we went into this meeting/conference type room where we were given welcome drinks and had a little show put on for us. Which was cool to watch. Then we went on the go to our rooms. The thing is me and my family have had a bit of bad luck with our rooms on holiday, every year there is always something wrong with the first room they give us. So cue holiday drama number 1…
We arrived in our rooms which i’ve got to admit at first glance were lovely! It was until you looked closer you could see what was wrong with it. First there were mosquitos everywhere! It was gross. There were stains all over the room and beds, and they gave a little camp bed to sleep on which isn’t even suitable for a 6 year old. Not great… And to top things of next door was a loud disco party that goes on every night until at least 2 am. Not really what you want when your jet lagged!
So the next day (today) we went down the reception to see our rep. And i really do feel sorry for that poor women because she must have been getting 23425 million complaints a day, there were queues of people who wanted to see her. But she was really helpful, she got us new rooms to go look at, which honestly weren’t the best but at least i had a double sofa bed to sleep on, so we took it! They were closer to the pool area as well so thats a bonus.
So thats what we were up to yesterday and this morning. But we have just spent the afternoon sitting in the sun by the pool and getting a coffee.
In the evening we went to a ‘special meal’ that our holiday company put on for us. Which lets just say was a complete and utter disaster. Long story short they ended up running out of food and refused to cook more. Not the best start to our holiday! We ended up eating in the buffet which was rammed with people. And to top it all of when we went back to the room there was a disgusting smell coming from outside and we couldn’t figure out what it was. Thats when we aunty (who works for a water company), who’s room was next to ours told us that it was sewage! Ewww. But i’ll let you know what happens about that tomorrow.
*Im actually convinced that this is a literal holiday nightmare. I mean its already full of disaster and we are only on day 2!
But trust me it gets wayyyy worse….
