We stayed here for one night on 2nd June 2015 as part of a tour of eastern Cuba. I thought we would never get there as the approach road has washed away in places and unless you had very accurate directions you would never find the place. The staff were welcoming and very friendly. Prior to our arrival we had... More

We stayed here 4 nights in late February. We had booked this place and paid for it because of the beautiful pictures of the waterfall and the 3 natural pools that we had seen on the internet and on youtube. When we got there,There was hardly any water in the fall and the so called natural pools were almost dark... More

If I remember correctly, this hotel/resort used to be a retreat for party members. It certainly still feels like a retreat situated next to a gorgeous river, in between to mountains and covered with lush green jungle. It's like a little haven to relax and unwind. The beautiful area is really stunning. The little village just down the road doesn't... More

Enjoying a beautiful mountain valley setting, this hotel is located at the end of a 70 mile drive from Santiago de Cuba, or 85 miles from Bayamo. The hotel consists of 4 apartment blocks, each containing 7 apartments. Each apartment is reasonably spacious with a veranda overlooking the river valley, and contains a good sized WC & shower room, air-con,... More

We had a private transfer from Trinidad to El Salton and our Cuban drivers even found it hard to find. It's in the middle of the rain forest with no outside noises or interference. Simple timber built roms with all mod cons you'll need for a relaxing stay. We had great sleep. We went on some fine walks to visit... More

You don't need your own transport - we took a taxi from Bayamo for 45CUCs and a taxi onwards to Santiago for 60CUCs (there were 4 of us sharing the cost). The road is only bad on the very last stretch -we had to get out and walk while our taxi struggled up the hill. Once there, we were in... More

We came across this little hotel by chance because we were tired of staying in the crowded cities. I found the name of this hotel in one of our cuba travel books. There was only two sentences about it and so we decided to call ahead and make reservations. Nobody picked up the phone. We were leaving from Santiago to... More

Hotel Horizontes Villa El Salton is located on the eastern slopes of the Sierra Maestra, Cuba’s highest mountain range, surrounded by beautiful landscapes and a natural waterfall that is the main feature here. Opened in the 1960s as a health resort for the Cuban Communist Party elite, today it describes itself as eco-resort - I would say it is more... More
