We stayed one night here as another government hotel turned us away because we did not have a reservation. The room was uninspiring but pretty clean and everything worked. Dinner at the restaurant was serviceable but not tasty. Be prepared to tip preventative lay for service. I asked the person at the desk for help booking our next stay at... More

This is one of the big hotels built in the 80's. That makes it a little bit unpersonal. However for one night it was ok. Rooms were ok but could use some maintenance like in most of the Cuban hotels. It is not possible to walk to the city so you need to take a taxi.

This hotel seems popular with tourist groups, perhaps because it is one of the few, if only, tourist oriented hotels in Camaguay. That said, the hotel is architecturally a communist bloc-type of hotel. The rooms are nothing special; the beds were okay. The dining room is large and plain. The buffet breakfast was actually pretty varied, with a good selection... More

We chose this hotel because of its location just outside the city having been warned of the Cuban propensity for decluttering rental cars of their insignias, radios and batteries. As these are the most common items removed from cars they are, of course, excluded from the insurance cover. Car rental companies have other very inventive ways of adding to their... More

This hotel was quite run down. The room was quite large and moderately clean. There was no wifi. It is on a main road so it is easy to find. It is set back from the road so you don't hear much road noise. We couldn't find any restaurants within walking distance and the buffet was very standard. The staff... More

Situated in the heart of Camaguey, the hotel is very grand and old fashioned, stepping back in time like most of Cuba. It is a large imposing building with a similar entrance area into an airy pleasant foyer. It has a roof top terrace/bar with views over the town, a pleasant swimming pool, lots of dark wood, attractive tiled floors,... More

Located ideally on the main road, this hotel did its job. Check in was easy, the room was spacious, we never bothered about the pool as we were only there one night only on a round trip for 2 weeks through Cuba... The restaurant was nearly empty (off season time), so it was pretty quiet. The service was great both... More

We did not have a good time here. Very basic rooms, not well-maintained, not good showers and too loud, you could hear noices everywhere. Bathroom was basic and the location is not the best if you want to be free to wander around and explore the city at your leisure. The food was not great either.

The room was too small for the two queenssize beds in it (or the beds were to large 😊). Rudimentary bathroom, no way to stabilize the shower's water temperature. Rooms entrance door looked very unreliable... Buffet restaurant rather mediocre, choice limited, aspect below expectation. Same observation in the morning at breakfast. Overall impression : outlived. Nice little 24h bar next... More

Very basic rooms with holes in the walls- meaning that you cannot block out the noise from the local bar! A friend also had a flood in their room after it rained- wetting a great deal of their luggage etc. Didn't eat in the hotel so cannot coment there. The noise continued after the bar closed and we could hear... More
