We stayed here one night during a trip in Trinidad. The hotel doesn't look that bad from outside. Once inside the rooms you'll start to see the problems. The rooms were not very clean, there were spider webs everywhere and the toilet was literally falling apart. Definitely not recommended

Average rooms, food etc. Great location though for walking and taking the enormous Russian trucks into the countryside. the out-buildings around it look semi-derilect, but it is Cuba. The bowling alley was enormous fun, and great music playing., The indoor pool was good, but limited opening hours. Food was usual Cuban standard. Great service at breakfast and turning round after...

We stayed here two nights while on a walking tour. Room was adequate, clean enough. Food was okay but nothing special. It is in a beautiful location but needs a lot of tlc and updating. I wouldn't stay here again through choice. The best part was the towel sculptures the maid left on our beds each night!

I guess it would take years to put everything right, even if they had the money. Our room was dark and somewhat 'unfriendly' with only luke warm water from the shower. We asked if we could have another pillow and were told that we could willing have one if they had one to offer. They had no spare pillows! The... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night while on a two day tour of Unesco heritage sites and Tropes de Collantes Nature Reserve Park. It's beautifully situated on a mountain surrounded by fresh, clean air and the beauties of nature. We were surprised when we saw our spacious and attractive and very clean room with a balcony. The shower... More

I stayed here as part of a 2 day tour from Havana and did some hiking in the area. The room was spacious enough and the beds were fine. However we were just down the hall from the front desk which I would NOT recommend. I think it was room 105? There was a bar in the lobby and we... More

My tour group stayed here for two nights and it was one of the more comfortable places where we stayed in Cuba. The room is incredibly spacious, the beds comfortable, the maids very creative with their service and everything is clean and operating - a far cry from some other resorts where we stayed during our trip around the island....

much better than the one i stayed in Habana. Topes de Collantes got at least 4 waterfalls so it is worth your while to stay in this hotel for at least 3 nights. This will give you enough time to do some hiking in the area best waterfall Caburni . You can walk to Caburni and Vegas Grande.To go to... More

We stayed at Los Helechos as part of a 2 day tour. We were a little bit nervous about the quality of the hotel where we would stay as part of the tour, but in the end we were pleasantly surprised. Located in the middle of the Topes de Colantes region, Los Helechos offers nice relaxing rooms where the only... More

The Los Helechos Hotel is a 70ies, somehow East German style hotel in a beautiful mountainous surrounding which lowers the somewhat cold feeling the architecture breathes. However, the rooms are quiet and vary spacious. As in many other places (warm) water is only available during certain hours (from 7am in the morning). The garden and the surrounding mountains are beautiful.... More
