This hotel was built before the Cuban Revolution and to be fair it probably hasn't received a lick of paint since! Rooms are pretty grubby. Only hand towels were provided in the bathrooms and were so stained and disgusting that we took them down to reception to change them (and to get some bigger towels). No plugs in the bathroom....

We stayed at the Islazul Hotel Mirador and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The rooms were very basic but anything we asked for was attended to immediately and we were fine. The food here is the outstanding point! Amazing local Cuban food, despite the limited choice! We used the Mirador as a base for bird watching and it was in... More

If you love to party till the early hours, then this could be the place for you. If you value a good night’s sleep, then avoid Saturday nights as very loud music goes on till 2 am. That said, Room 23, a standard room with a view over the car park and towards nearby La Guira National Park was quite... More

We stayed for two fairly comfortable nights here. The rooms was fine and the bathroom was OK when there was water (an intermittent problem in the area) although a loo seat might have been a nice touch. There was music playing continually in the pool area as this is a hotel that the locals enjoy visiting to relax around during... More

We stayed in this place with a G Adventures group. The linen and towels weren't clean but then the bathrooms weren't either! The bar and pool were full of locals and the music was loud. The bar only did one set menu for $14 which was too expensive for us. There is nothing to do in the area and it's... More

Not bad by Cuban standards, the swimming pool was full of locals and the food nothing to write home about. Breakfast was served in a restaurant overlooking the pool and evening meals were by the pool, not much of a selection from either venue.

Clearly not up to first world standards, e.g. no Internet, but acceptable. Convenient to multiple ecotourism destinations in Parque Nacional La Güira by car. Food at the restaurant was adequate, though nothing to rave about. (In general, Cuban food isn't, relative to the rest of the Caribbean and Latin America.) This hotel certainly isn't worth a special trip but if... More

We had booked 3 nights at this hotel. The review in the Rough Guide said it was a peaceful retreat, close to the hot baths. As the previous report stated, the baths are closed, the glass doors smashed in and the whole place liiks awful. The hotel itself looks quite good at 1st, the pool and gardens are nice enough....

My husband and I went to this hotel for our last night in Cuba as a stop off between vinales and Havana after reading in the lonely planet that there were mud baths nearby. We thought mud baths could be a really fun and interesting way of spending our last night there - and they would have been, but apparently... More
