Our tour group ate their last good-bye meal at this restaurant after 10 days in Cuba. We did not stay at the hotel. Great atmosphere and pretty water views. Food was also good. We all enjoyed our last outing, but not a place to try to meet together as a group. Everyone broken up at small tables and not really... More

Everything is said in the title. Nice service and good food at the restaurant. Romantic view for eating at night. But compare to what is said in many travel guides, the rooms are tiny, not charming and very noisy.

An easy walk from the drop off point at Hotel Jagua, this restaurant with rooms is right on the coast. Our room was on the first floor up a fairly steep polished wooden staircase.the room was spacious, well appointed and even had a hairdryer. The bathroom was large and had plenty of hot water. The open air feel to the... More

The location is nice - right on the water's edge at the tip on Punta Gorda south of Ceinfuegos. The Villa is really a restaurant with 3 rooms to let upstairs. The rooms are ly overpriced considering their size - a tiny bathroom (you have to practically climb over the toilet to get in the shower), there is no fridge... More

We stayed two nights. This Villa is primarily a restaurant, with six large bedrooms. En suite bathrooms. The situation right by the sea makes it a tropical paradise, where you can sit and watch the ocean whilst drinking your cocktails! There is a small park next door and the Villa has a small pool. The breakfasts are excellent and the... More

Hi all, I stayed one night (18 12 2014) with my Cuban wife in Villa Lagarto. You have to understand that I am a Cuban permanent resident since 2002 and that I have been traveling Cuba since 1995. OK Villa Lagarto was advised to my by several friends who all work in touristic enterprises in Cuba. I had a look... More

We stayed at Villa Legarto for three nights on the last leg of our trip in Cuba, and it was absolutely wonderful. Built right on the end of a peninsula, it feels a bit like a treehouse built over the sea, and provides stunning views of the mountains across the water. It has a tranquil feel but the staff are...

We stayed here for one night at the beginning of June 2014. We were glad we chose to stay in this Casa in Punta Gorda rather than in CIenfuegos. There are comfortable areas to relax outside (rocking chairs, deckchairs and hammocks) with views of the sea. The room was cozy with a safe, a warm shower and an air conditioning... More
