This was our last hotel in our 3 week 10 hotels trip. After reading some of the more concerning reviews (staff giving access to non-guests to rooms) I wasn't that happy to stay here. But it was part of the trip. But it seems that the neighboring hotel is even worse. Recently non-guests are now also allowed to use the... More

We stayed here for one night upon our arrival in Holguin and found conditions vastly improved since our last visit. Stairs on walkways to the main block of the hotels were well lit and broken bulbs had been replaced. We stayed at one of the bungalows and the room was clean, albeit worn, but the shower worked and the windows... More

We stayed here for one day in February 2013. The hotel is located so that you can walk to the city center in 45minutes or so. Our room did smell quite a bit and it was very damp. Due to the shower curtain which was too short we flooded our whole room when showering. It was quiet at night but... More

This was the first stop during our trip to Cuba. We had a kind of cottage to ourselves. Nice and private. The view was pretty nice and the bathroom was tidy. To single beds. The price was ok and there were nice pancakes at the breakfast buffet.

This hotel was clean and maintenance of the grouds was impeccable! Anything you ordered was including with breakfast. The customer service at the restaraunt was good as well. The only down side were the stiff beds and the fact that you could only take a hot shower during the day since the water is heated by solar power.I would stay... More

I've stayed here several times to accomodate flight times and although I hesitate to write negative reviews ( as long as the bed is clean and the beer cold- it is Cuba, afterall), there are some issues that need addressing. The only beer available: Buccanero. No mint for Mohitos.( I had to supply some lime juice in a bottle I... More

Good place to stay if you want a cheap hotel in Holguin. No telephones in room (unit does not work) no currency exchange, breakfast at restaurant is included but sucks. Feels like a hostel!!

I guess it all depends on one's tastes and expectations, and what one expects for $20 CUC's for one night. I stay at El Bosque for one night sleep-overs when I have an early departure/late arrival. $10 dollars for a taxi to the airport (takes about 20 minutes) and $3 to central Holguin. (Inexpensive by industrialized standars) Don't like the... More

Hotel El Bosque is out of town, a ten min walk/1km from the Pernik. Pleasant setting in quiet leafy grounds. We stayed two nights prior to getting our plane home. Pool and kiddy pool were clean and pleasant when we went. Rooms clean. Our shower room was new and clean, my mother's next door needed redecorating, and she ended up... More
