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

We stayed just one night here in May 2014. It is, as others have said here, a restaurant with rooms rather than a hotel with meals. It's flooded twice a day with coachloads, most of whom were American for our stay. But, don't let that put you off, we found it a delightful place. The rooms upstairs are very comfortable... More

Villa Lagarto is a very comfortable Casa to stay at in Cienfuegos. It has it's own restaurant which is very good as long as you are not vegetarian. Wonderful situation and outlook by the sea. AC in room and warm shower. Only draw back is neighbouring public park which is just over the wall where they had fairly constant 80's... More

We stayed one night here on our way to Trinidad, quite easy to get to with our own car and a helpful attendant looked after it overnight (price included in the stay). Our welcome was friendly - they had a customer relations person show us to our room and explain the hotel. Room was nice, great big bed and bathroom... More

Fine accomodations and excellent food! Nice quiet location right on the bay. Spacious air conditioned rooms. There's deck above the restaurant with a great view of the bay and mountains, a great spot to enjoy a nice rum and fine cigar. The daily breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We dined both nights at the restaurant which was very good.

Dined here with a group of 16. The surroundings are delightful, it is on the shore line so views out to sea. The service and food was first class and reasonable price. If I came back i would certainly stay here.

The place is nice, clean, the employers are very kind and available. The room is nothing special, the bed is quiete big but the bathroom is really small. If you are looking for a typical cuban atmosphere, this is not the place where you can find it. Probably the restaurant is good, we didn't eat there but the smell was... More

This was our third visit to Villa Lagarto in the last 15 months and we would not consider any other lodging in Cienfuegos. The place is reminiscent of "Swiss Family Robiinson", with walkways built within the trees and a top deck overlooking the Bay of Cienfuegos that is a true oasis. The rooms are very functional and a good size,... More
