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

Great location for the beach and mosquitoes. We had a fairly nice room but as in most of the 5 places we stayed in Cuba, the mattresses are basic and sometimes lumpy and the pillows are somewhat stiff and hard on your neck. The whole complex has a strangely Soviet feel in design. Elevators were quirky. This is an all... More

On arrival we were assigned to rooms that were very small but the next day other rooms opened up on higher floors and we ended up with rooms that had 3 double beds in them. Service was awesome and the food was very good. The internet was down most of the time but not the fault of the hotel. I... More

I feel like I should make allowances for this being Cuba and be more lenient in the review. But so many things in this hotel disappointed me that I'm reviewing on a non-relative scale. The beach here is very nice. However, the hotel is not equipped to deal with modern guests demands. The beds were broken down. There was a... More

We stayed twice in this hotel in 2013. Staff is very kind and helpful. Always they listened to customer's need and welcomed their suggestion about short comings. We are planing to go again on 2014. Hope soon they will update the internet. But we understand it is not the problem with Hotel Ancon. Whole system has to up grade. But... More

I stayed at Hotel Ancon on the week of March 2nd, 2014. It was my 4th visit to the hotel and 8th visit to Cuba. This Hotel never dissapoints me. The staff and people are very friendly and helpful and the beach is beautiful and the place is very safe and secure. These three factors are the main reasons along... More

The best thing about the hotel is the location. Touring Trinidad is a great experience for those enjoy colonial style. Be kind to the staff and they will be kind to you. Do not have high expectations regarding food, there are many great places around town.

Hotel Ancon in Trinidad is on a lovely beach and, being an all-inclusive, offers lots of bars and a good selection of food. The main buffet restaurant is quite noisy but there are three other restaurants (fish, Italian and Cuban) which are more intimate and provide table service. The fish restaurant is particularly pleasant. There is no extra charge for... More
