This is a favorite hotel of ours, and we decided to hold our wedding here on 15th May, I am from the UK and my wife is Cuban, the setting for our wedding was in the second restaurant, with fantastic views of Holguin and the mountains in the distance, when the sun went down, with beautiful red clouds it was...

There is this great location with wonderful views. And once upon a time somebody had the bright idea to build an African style hotel. The reception area gives you the feel of a jungle lodge, as does the restaurant. In the lush garden you find the guest rooms/cabins. And all this could still be wonderful, if it had been well...

I came here once to eat, the food was really good...The staff was friendly, the place clean, without mention the amazing views from up there. The wood work at the Lobby is beautiful...Something that worth the visit just to appreciate it. I would recommend it..If you are not from the city..please, take a cab...you'll get there sooner. :)

Nice play to stay when you arrive in Holguin. Perfect vieuw from the swimmingpool. Cuban atmosphere. Rooms are clean and cold enough. Friendly staff. Good food. Easy to find, when you're with your own car.

The hotel's privileged location takes advantage of the lovely views over the valley. Very peaceful and quiet. When we arrived, a local cuban band and dancers welcomed us, which was quite fun. During dinner, the same band reappeared, getting a fair number of guests to dance.The food is not more than ok, the rooms were clean and spacious, but still... More

This was our first stop on a cycling holiday. The view is nice but the food was truly revolting. The staff is cheerful but the entire experience for me was ruined by seeing tourists pour beer down a tethered donkeys throat. I complained and was told it was tradition. Really? tradition to be cruel to a defenceless animal in order... More

After the bustle of an oceanside resort, arriving to Villa Islazur Mirador de Mayabe was like arriving to a piece of heaven. This quiet 24 room resort, boasts incredible views, nice spacious rooms, and tasteful grounds. It's proximity to Holguin allows for the cultural experience of the city without having to stay in the city. After a day trip into... More

I have tried hard to give this strange hotel 3 on the rating scale - it was possibly a charming hotel many years ago. I am sure the staff were unaware of how seedy it had become in comparison to the standards available for ordinary travelers elsewhere in Cuba; they were cheerful and enthusiastic - it feels cruel to be...

Don't be decieved by the wonderful view and the pool. Rooms poor with cockroaches - we had to put a bin over the drain. Food tasteless and rather an unpleasant feel about the place. I wouldn't recommend this hotel for families or for doing anything more than a stop over to or from the airport. I wouldn't recommend this hotel... More
