Looks alright. Here's what happened - it's long... but if you're considering staying here, you MUST READ THIS. “So bad I was asked to sign an agreement not to publish my experiences on TripAdvisor” 1 of 5 stars Let me start this review by saying that prior to our stay at Melia Buenavista, my husband and I had enjoyed 10 fun days of travelling around Cuba, staying in casa particulars costing roughly 25 CUC a night. Our rationale for staying at the Melia Buenavista at the end of the trip was that after 10 days of relative ‘roughing it’, we’d enjoy some luxury. I wish we’d stuck with the casas for the entire trip as our stay at the Melia Buenavista went from being laughable, to being frustrating, to being downright upsetting. 5 star Royal Service it certainly is not. We had a pleasant check-in on our arrival (nothing special), met our ‘butler’ and ate lunch before checking into our room. After 10 days of very variable food – from beautiful fresh lobster at some casas to awful ham-and-cheese sandwiches on the road, it was nice to see the lunch buffet with a good deal of variety. After lunch we went to the room to find almost no information available on the restaurant options around the resorts or activities and excursions. We thought this a bit odd – most hotels and resorts have a compendium full of information – but dismissed it as not a big deal as our butler had promised to try to get us reservations at some of the restaurants at the other Melia resorts on Cayo Santa Maria and sold us on the ‘special’ gala dinner at the Buenavista the next evening. Our arrival in the room revealed something else not quite right – holes in the wall in our WC where the toilet roll holder had evidently been bumped off/out and not repaired. Again, we dismissed this, but in a 6 month old resort this should have had alarm bells ringing. We hit the beach, then went back to the room to discover the joke that was our Balinese-style shower. Now, I’ve stayed in top-end resorts in Asia with outdoor bathrooms, but never have I been so exposed as at the Buenavista. Each room’s outdoor – and only – shower (there is only a bath in the internal bathroom) faces the walkways in the resort so you are in full sight of anyone walking by when you are showering. We were perplexed by this but were determined to enjoy our stay, so again, we brushed it off with a laugh and used towels and bathrobes hung over the wooden slat walls of the shower to create some privacy. At that point we decided we needed to get some more CUCs, having almost run out in the previous 10 days. We were aware that there are no banking facilities at the Buenavista, so took the bus (for which no-one could tell us the timetable, so we just loitered in the lobby until it came) to the Sol Melia, which is where Buenavista reception told us we could get money out using our credit card. On arriving at Sol we were told the communications were down so we couldn’t get cash, but that they generally worked in the mornings and to try again another day. We were frustrated by this but decided to head back to the Buenavista. Our dinner that evening in the Los Navigantes restaurant was pleasant enough, and uneventful. Next morning immediately after breakfast we decided to try again to get cash out, so as to get the chore out of the way. My husband went to the Buenavista reception to ask them to phone the Sol to see if the communications were working before he took another bus ride over there, only to be told that reception could make the call but WE would be charged for the cost of the phone call. This is the point at which we realised that this all of the cues were too much to ignore and that we were not going to be happy at the Buenavista. What sort of hotel (and I don’t care if it’s Cuba – my 25 CUC/night casa owners were happy to book taxis, make restaurant reservations, enquire about bus timetables and so on without any charge to us) charges its guests the cost of a call to its sister property? Despite this, we had a nice enough day – snorkelling at the beach, swimming in the pool, and reading – and were looking forward to the ‘gala dinner’. On arriving at the restaurant (the beachside one at the Buenavista) we noticed that every table was being seated individually (i.e. only one couple could enter the restaurant at a time) while the other 20 or so people waiting to get in were forced to stand outside and fend off the mosquitoes. Again, I ask you – what Royal Service? When our turn came, we were seated and told that the dinner was a set menu. We had not been told this by our butler and were very annoyed – there’s no way I would have selected a set menu when there must be 10 restaurants or more in total across the Melia resorts on Cayo Santa Maria at which I could choose my own meal, but by this stage it was too late to do anything else so we decided to stay. We were told that the meal was either ‘langoustine’, steak or a combination of the two. I selected the ‘langoustine’ while my
Sylvia Sidney (1910 - 1999)
Sylvia Sidney (1910 - 1999)
Obituary: Sylvia Sidney With her wide, soulful eyes, high cheekbones and tremulous lips, Sylvia Sidney was an ideal heroine for the Depression, during which she was frequently a working-class girl stoically dealing with deprivation or a wayward sweetheart. Her intense portrayals of innocence and vulnerability in such films as An American Tragedy, Street Scene and Dead End invited enormous sympathy, and, though she occasionally tried to break the mould, the public came to associate her with moist-eyed suffering. She spent much of her film career at Paramount, where the fact that she was the mistress of the studio's production head sat uneasily with some of her co-workers, though she did not possess the type of glamour to equal the studio's four other reigning queens, Marlene Dietrich, Carole Lombard, Miriam Hopkins and Claudette Colbert. When she left the studio her career faltered despite a vigorous effort to recast her image, but she made a comeback in the Seventies as a fine character actress. She was born Sophia Kosow in 1910 in the Bronx, New York, to a Romanian father and Russian mother, but shortly afterwards her parents divorced and her mother married a dentist, Dr Sigmund Sidney, who legally adopted Sylvia. She was a shy, introverted child who stammered, so her parents enrolled her for elocution and dancing lessons and at 15 she entered the Theatre Guild School. The school's graduation play was attended by critics, and The New York Times praised Sidney's qualities of "charm and wistfulness". She made her professional debut at the age of 16 in a Washington production of The Challenge of Youth and at 17 made her Broadway debut when she took over the leading role in a play called The Squall. Her first film appearance was a fleeting one as a chorus girl in Broadway Nights (1927), in which an equally unknown Barbara Stanwyck also made her screen debut as a fan dancer, but Sidney's first major screen role was in Through Different Eyes (1929) in which she played a murderess. Back on Broadway she won praise in Gods of the Lightning, Maxwell Anderson's drama based on the controversial Sacco-Vanzetti trial in which, foreshadowing the film roles to come, she played the sweetheart of one of the condemned men, ending the play hysterical after learning of her lover's execution. The New York Times praised her "unadorned poignancy" and Percy Hammond in the Herald Tribune wrote, "I enjoyed the way they ended it, with Miss Sidney employing all the difficult pyrotechnics of hysteria as the curtain fell. She sent us homeward bubbling with pity and agitation." Several plays later, one critic was to write of her performance in Many- a-Slip (1930), "Miss Sidney has her usual quota of sobbing to do, and is made to appear thoroughly miserable throughout the play". Sidney was acting in Bad Girl (1930) when she was spotted by Paramount's head of production, B.P. Schulberg, who offered her a contract. Sidney later said that two things made her accept - her attraction to Schulberg and the promise he made her that she would play Roberta Alden in the screen version of Dreiser's An American Tragedy to be directed by Josef von Sternberg. While that film was being prepared, Sidney replaced an ailing Clara Bow in Mamoulian's City Streets (1930) opposite Gary Cooper. The director gave Sidney a memorable opening close-up with one eye mysteriously closed. The camera pulls back to reveal that she is at a side-show shooting booth. Variety reported: "From a histrionic standpoint Sylvia Sidney is the whole works." Though An American Tragedy (1931) proved a commercial and critical failure, Sidney's performance as the factory worker who becomes pregnant and is drowned by her social-climbing lover (Phillips Holmes) won praise. (Today the film is regarded more highly than the 1951 remake with Shelley Winters in Sidney's role.) The actress was then borrowed by Sam Goldwyn to star in his film version of Elmer Rice's play Street Scene (1931). As slum-dweller Rosa Maurrant, whose adulterous mother is killed by her father, Sidney's credible portrayal of oppression prompted Variety to give an astute appraisal of her appeal: She gives a persuasive performance in a role for which she is particularly fitted, typifying, as she somehow does here, the tragedy of budding girlhood cramped by sordid surroundings. Even her lack of formal beauty intensifies the pathos of her character. Off-screen Sidney's life style was in total contrast to her screen image. She had acquired a Beverly Hills mansion and a Malibu beach house, and B.P. Schulberg, who was now estranged from his wife, was her constant companion. Though she frequently protested at her screen image, she continued to be cast in suffering roles. In Ladies of the Big House (1932), she and her boyfriend were sent to prison after being framed on a murder charge, in The Miracle Man (1932) she was a cr
