We really enjoyed Club Ancon. The rooms were very close to the beach (block 3) and we had an oceanview. They were clean and reasonably comfy so it was all good. Loved the beach, great snorkelling, nice sand and very warm water. Food was pretty good, always could find something appealing to me. Really enjoyed our evening in Trinidad, what... More

My two boys and I travelled to Cuba from June 15-20 2014. The bus ride from Santa Clara was 3 hours long but fully expected. Our flight on Cubana Airline delayed us for 2 hours. We arrived close to midnight. Upon check-in we were assigned a room. There were only two small beds, with three of us in the room.... More

We stayed 3 nights over the new year period, with the hotel at full capacity (hotela in nearby Trinidad were all fully booked). The 1970's Soviet building lacks charm and is in need of serious maintenance, but is functional and our room was large with a balcony overlooking the beautiful beach. The decor is dated and the bathroom could do... More

In early June I spent a day and night at the Hotel Ancon and had an enjoyable time. This was a slow period and there were very few tourists, which I did not mind myself. More Cuban families and a few other people though very low in numbers. The check in went smooth with a small glitch in the room... More

A run-down Russian-built hotel that doesn't seem to have had much renovation since the glorious days of the Soviet Union. I would call it a dump. Nevertheless I spoke to some Canadian visitors who were quite satisfied. To all his own! The service was brusque, the food was mediocre, the upkeep and cleanliness left much to be desired. The rooms... More

Stayed here for one night on part of charity bike ride across Cuba. I wouldn't bring my family here but actually this was one of the best of 7 hotels we stayed in in Cuba!! The rooms are still pretty basic and old but it's a nice hotel with an interesting reception and bar areas. Dinner was ok and the... More

At 7am, before breakfast, we headed east along the beach out front and as it turned out, were gone 4-1/2 hours, having been fascinated with the myriad of sea creatures in the shallow water: two dead blowfish, oodles of hermit crabs feeding on fish remains, clusters of sea anemones, lots of starfish, a live sea conch. Returning to the hotel,... More

I just returned from a short stay at the hotel. I stayed on the new side with a balcony facing the beach and beautiful sunsets. However, others in the group stayed in the old Russian built section and it was very rundown. The buffet has lots of choices and there were cooks at breakfast, lunch and dinner cooking specialties. I... More
