Visiting Holguin recently, I enjoyed an evening meal here with a Cuban family, including an infant. We were made very welcome, and the substantial menu gave us plenty of choice. The food was tasty and quite well presented, and the service was also of a high standard. Villa El Bosque seems to have raised its game to face competition from... More

The hotel was in need of cleaning, cob webs on the ceilings, giant hairy spiders around. The shower head was broken. The dining area had birds flying around that landed on the tables to pick at the bread baskets. The place was full of loud music by the pool and lots of people hanging out. No toilet tissue or soap... More

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!!
