This lovely hotel in the mountains reminded me of when I was a kid and my family travelled in Europe staying at hotels in the swiss alps and the Brenner Pass, Germany and Alsace in France. We were lucky enough to be the only couple who had booked this Mountain Tour (Gaviotas booked through our SunWing rep at the Playa... More

I stayed here for only one night after visiting the Salto del Guayabo and I wish I stayed longer! Up in the mountains a completely different side of Cuba. I loved all the animals walking around the area (chickens, goose, rabbits, horses), especially the peacocks that were sitting next to me during breakfast. The cabin was spacious, the bed comfortable... More

We stayed here overnight on a two day tour so I cant judge the hotel as a long stay guest though I think I'd feel the same if we'd been here for a week or two. The setting is superb, high up in the mountains and surrounded by forest, the temperature is a few degrees lower than at the coast... More

Pinares de Mayari is a hotel similar to the one at El Salton. It's in the mountains and is in a very rural area. Small cabins that are strangely Swiss looking but are clean and comfortable with good water pressure. The main dining room has huge ceilings so it's a bit echoey and dark, but the outdoor pool is very... More

This is a mountain located hotel, in a lovely setting.The log cabins are pretty basic, but you get hot showers and a comfortable bed. Nice base to explore this beautiful and off-the-beaten-track location in Cuba, near Holguin.

The hotel is located high in the mountains in the heart of a national park. The cooler air makes a refreshing change from the cities and beach resorts. The hotel is made up of a number of log cabins the cabins themselves are very homely and well equipped including a tv, fridge and cd radio. There's a pool and tennis... More

We visited this resort that consist of russian-style wood bungalows nicely arranged below the slopes of a small mountain. The road from Mayari is quite bad and only partly paved, but we still managed to climb it with our mini rental car (Kia piccanto), but it was completely dry. In wet conditions, we would recommend a four-wheel drive car. Few... More

During the last week of December, 2013 I took a day trip to the remote area of Pinares de Mayari, in Parque Nacional de Mensura. We left the Hotel Don Lino by taxi, via Holguin, travelling the highway towards Santiago until the east turn to Cueto, then to the city of Mayari. It’s also possible to travel by way of... More

At the beginning I was not very thrilled to go there due to the comments about the road, but now I am very glad I have done it! This spot is mainly for nature lovers and those tired of the smoke of the cities. The Villa has a group of cabins made of wood not designed for luxury but with... More

This hotel enjoys a beautiful mountain setting amongst the pine trees, high in the Sierra del Cristal. It is located on a rough, but well engineered, road approximately 28 km from both Mayari and Mella. Although mostly unsurfaced, the road can be managed easily in a small economy car, if driven with a bit of care. The hotel is sliding... More
