This is a difficult review for me to write, because I have mixed feelings about our stay here. I'll start with the positive first. We love this place! It was nice and quietly tucked away on a private beach, which was awesome. The oceanview suites were a wonderful size and were recently renovated. We stayed in room 321. The bathroom...

Had the most relaxing experience at Glunz. All the staff went out of their way to make our experience excellent. A special shout out to Heather, Michael and a few others that were exceptional. Clean rooms, free transportation around the island, food and drink service right at the pool. . . . . nothing more relaxing. Will return!!!

Our stay was wonderful (late May). We had the perfect location in every way, both in proximity to everything, anywhere you wanted to go and the room location. We were on the ground floor, right next to the pool, the beach and the lobby. Rooms are quiet at night and very clean. Staff was super friendly. If they don't have...

We took a much needed 3 day trip to the Keys to destress and relax...this was the perfect place to find that. The beach area was clean and peaceful. The pool sits waterfront and was never crowded. The adjacent restaurant has good food and drinks, not too expensive, which made not having to drive anywhere that much better. The rooms...

We would definitely stay here again. The room was clean, the staff helpful and friendly, and the view was wonderful. The room is a little dated, but had a very nice beach vibe.We were passing through, without reservations, and the staff accommodated every single request, including an ocean view.

Location was great. Easy to find. Everything is really close by. Shopping, fishing, eating, etc. Loved Havana Jack's Tiki Bar and Restaurant. Mike - hotel grounds and maintenance was so great. Very knowledgeable about the area, what to do and see. The bartenders were also great, so friendly and welcoming. I, unfortunately, can't remember their names, but they worked days...

This hotel literally saved our vacation from some unfortunate events I can't get into. Glunz is situated right on the beach with beautiful views of the ocean facing Cuba. Has several pools and is next door to a very nice bar and restaurant called Havana Jacks! The staff is very nice and accommodating with their service! Three story hotel has...

Thank you Wendy. I'm sorry you did not have an exceptional experience at our hotel. We don't usually receive too many reviews concerning the open balconies that run the length of the resort. In fact, the open balcony gives our guests the opportunity to meet their neighbors and make new friends. I'm not sure why you were experiencing low water...
