Cucuve is a botique hotel in the best sense of the word. We loved the bright, clean, air-conditioned rooms, the delicious breakfasts and handy all hours snack bar, and the central location, just steps away from the heart of the thriving restaurant and tourist district on the malecon.

This is a nice hotel. There is A/C in the rooms and they provide breakfast for you everyday. If you have a tour they provide you with a to-go breakfast which is very nice. The bathrooms are not air-conditioned and ours specifically had an open window that opened to an area that was very busy with music some nights. Staff is friendly.

Very nice room. Loved the little extras like having a robe and slippers and chocolates each day. The staff were helpful to order a beautiful cake and have it ready in our room to celebrate a birthday. There was access all the time to water, hot drinks and snacks. It was very clean and in a great location. Loved our stay there!
