Why Playa Pesquero Hotel is the Most Popular Resort in Holguin Cuba

To begin, I have to state what a huge resort this is. The Playa Pesquero Holguin has over 1000 rooms spread throughout 69 buildings. The sprawling resort has four pools, ten restaurants and 8 bars. All of these amenities contribute to it being repeatedly rated the number 1 hotel in Holguin, Cuba.

I was at the resort for a conference, but that did not stop me from sneaking around and checking things out. While I did not stay at this resort other than the three days I spent there during the conference, I had a lot of time to explore the grounds. I did, however, stay at the neighbouring property the Playa Costa Verde.
