We spent 1 night here as part of a tour, and that was 1 night too many. room was filthy and in need of a total refurb. I would not put my clothes in the horrible dank wardrobe.The bathroom was pretty dire too. The outside areas were no better and the balustade overlooking the beach was crumbling dangerously. The food... More

As noted earlier. We did an overnight to Trinidad via Thomas Cook. Assumed we were stopping in Trinidad, but evidently not. The location of this hotel is OK, but it looked shabby. I suspect it is a Cuban holiday resort come motel "lonely Planet" type stopover. Entertainment was poor. A local who was doing the lying on glass thing and... More

We stayed one night and enjoyed our time here. The room, while basic, offered everything we needed...air conditioning, a warm shower, soft bed, and a restful night. Upon arriving we went for a refreshing swim at the nearby sand beach. Lovely! Dinner was held in a dining room near the waters edge. It was very smoky inside so we sat... More

We stopped at this hotel as part of a trip to Trinidad, organised through Thomas Cook. The hotel looks rather like a dated US style motel. It has a reception area and bar, a games room and a restaurant area looking out over the sea. The property is on a promontory and is surrounded on the sea side by a... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night only, as part of a trip stopover on a bike tour run by Exodus Travels out of the UK. We ended up in one of the multi-unit building complexes, with our unit at the end on the second floor. We found the room to be fine but the view marginal despite... More

We stayed a week here, intending a sunbathing-on-the-beach-plus-reading break. Sadly the weather was not up to it - lots of wind and rain ... very warm rain, but rain nonetheless! Our cabin was well enough equipped and right on the edge of the water, which did come in to meet us when the wind was in the right direction. The... More

The villa itself somewhat of an unsung diamond, located 20km south of Trinidad de cuba.Our only night here was when Hurricane Cristabel was gathering strength out in the carribean sea. So as British people abroad we welcome the rain, as it broke the humidity of the heat and no sun. Our room were average kitted out(twin bed) very basic lock... More

This hotel complex is right on a beautiful bay, with sandy beach, complete with pigs and chickens roaming around. I stayed in a standalone chalet; others stayed in accommodation blocks. There is a strange octopus woman statue by reception and bar. The dining was buffet style and I was too tired to stay up for the entertainment, which was the... More

Our experience of this place was a positive one. The room was basic but clean and comfortable which I think is all you can really ask for. It reminded me of a holiday inn in the uk, but with a beuatiful view of the caribbean sea. Also the breakfast was acceptible and the bar reasonably priced. The only downside was... More

I was in Cuba for a school learning service trip. This was the second hotel which we stayed at and I would have loved if we could have stayed there the whole trip. It was honestly a hidden gem. I thought the layout of little huts was really adorable and our room overlooked the ocean. It was a really neat... More
