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

The view is totally spectacular. The lobby and restaurant look nice with the open thatched roofs, etc. The rooms weren't too bad either, but of course there were many issues. The AC did not work even after a guy came and fiddled with it. The shower head was not mounted to the wall, creating problems. However, the place was clean.... More

The location of this small resort outside Holguin is excellent, the views are spectacular, out towards the mountains and over the valley below, but, unfortunately, that is just about where the positives end. The pool area is pleasant and busy during the day with local families but the rooms are decidedly poor. Ours was dirty, there were lightbulbs missing and... More

The Mirador de Mayabe was on an attractive site with a swimming pool and friendly staff, but the whole catering system was dire. The menu is limited and during out stay was made even more so by the absence of the published chicken, prawns, salad (only cucumber), fruit and finally, on two days, there was even an absence of bread....

Its a really relaxing place to go. They remodel the pool, painted all around & added swings to the bar area, i don't recommend eating at the bar, they usually have chicken , & fries, or pork steaks, nothing to die for & not worth the money, I would say pay for the entrance which I think it might be...

I always stay in private houses in Holguin city but I visit Villa Mirador de Mayabe occasionally with Cuban friends for lunch or a beer. The prices are reasonable, the staff are friendly, and the pool has a great view. On Sunday mornings, hundreds of people bring their motorcycles and go-karts out to the race track just below Mirador de... More

Stuck on top of Mayabe hills some 8km out of town, the hotel is known for two things. The first are the views across the valley and the second is a resident donkey that enjoys drinking the local beer. Although both are ok for a quick visit, the rooms although spacious for Cuba are uninviting and the restaurant is forgetable.... More
