In all fairness - there are good things to say about this place. It's close to the beach and the layout is practical and well suited for beach life. That's were the good things end for me. The rooms sorely needs attention and should have been restored a long time ago. I brought a glass of lemonade to my room... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms were good, overlooking the beach and always taken care of in terms of cleanning. The pool was horrific, always green whater (not treated) and even the readings PH were there from the moment we arrived till the moment we left, they don't take care of it. The food could be a lot...

We stayed here as part of a tour and I must say it was rather ordinary ! We wanted to stay in beautiful Trinidad itself but unfortunately couldn't be accommodated . I had read reviews prior to arriving and was rather hesitant . The hotel is rundown, staff were either unbelievably rude or totally indifferent ! The food was almost... More

What an awful place to stay. Room smelled rotten and damp. Food - it was really bad. Smell in dining room was very bad and nauseating. Pool looks like it is never cleaned. First chore in room was to kick cockroach out of room - then block all drains and gap under door. Aircon was great - only positive. It... More

Bit run-down but then its a budget hotel with everything included. Once you realise your there for the beach and water, the hotel is fine. The location is great and we had a real good time - remember to book the a la carte restaurant -worth it.

Consider myself a fair reviewer but I cannot say anything good about this place. To clarify we were only there on a day pass, thank goodness! Staff were very unfriendly, and the place was ridden with flys, Mosquitos and insects. The pool looked like it hadn't been cleaned for years. If you want to spend time at the beach i... More

Reading many of these reviews was really funny, because people seem to expect something extraordinary from this hotel, especially in Cuba. I've been to Cuba myself 5 times as of now, Ancon was my 4th. I can honestly say that the beach out there is the worst I've ever seen in Cuba, and those who were to such locations as... More

Well this is the first time I have contributed a review to Trip advisor (although I read and benefit from them often - now I have started I will add all my reviews on cuba as it really is a place where one needs info in advance to benefit from and we had experiences from great to mixed to awful)....

We stayed here the first two nights of our Cuba trip. I came to Cuba with low expectations and this hotel met them. The hotel property was poorly maintained. The buffet food at breakfast and dinner was terrible. The only meal we enjoyed was a plated meal at the Italian restaurant on the lower level. Our bedroom, the bedding and... More
