Stayed at La Ermita as part of a Jules Verne tour group. We were aware that some hotels in Cuba were basic but were not expecting anything as bad as this. When we finally managed to open the door to our room we were greeted by a very unpleasant smell of latrines, the room was scruffy, unpleasant and unclean, I... More

This is unlikely to be the first hotel you have stayed at in Cuba so you won't be surprised at its shortcomings. The good point? A magnificent view of the Vinales Valley from the grounds. Apart from freshly cooked omelettes for breakfast and an excellent rabbit stew on one evening, the food was poor. Room: Spartan. Daylight was visible through... More

Nice stay in beautiful surrounding. This hotel is situated just above the village of Vinales. It gives a great starting point for some tours in the surrounding Vinales valley. Not always was the shower fully operational, but that belongs to the charms of a country like Cuba. The hotel offers a shop and some paladares restaurants in the direct surrounding.... More

We had some breathtaking views from this hotel particularly at sunrise and sunset looking over the Vinales Valley and the most strange looking mountains, mogotes. The food was high quality particularly the grilled fish. The table lamps did not work, the room was not cleaned, the wash basin and the mirror must have seen better days and looked as if... More

We were initially blown away by the views from this hotel, and our room and balcony were comfortable enough, though a little shabby. The grounds are well-kept and the presence of dogs, cats, chickens and other wildlife (including hummingbirds) all co-existing peacefully in premises is charming. Some of the staff were smiling and pleasant, sadly not so the desk-staff. It... More

Stunning views all aound as Vinales area is wonderful. We were on a trip with Jules Verne and apart from the view this Hotel has little to offer. The room was very basic but ok. The balcony did have a great view. The pool was definitely a funny colour so did not risk it but was pleasant to sit around... More

We actually did not stay in the Hotel. But it is worth visiting when you are in Vinales. Because they have an excellent view. We spent an afternoon at the Pool and the Snack Bar enjoying the surroundings.

Like the earlier review by David H we can here on an Archers/Cosmos tour on a late change when we were down to stay at the Los Jazmines. Our party was, however, much smaller being only 7 of us - there were supposed to have been 12 but 5 never turned up. This was only one of a number of... More

I've read quite a few recent negative reviews of La Ermita and to an extent I can understand the points people have made however, unless they had a significantly different experience to me, its really not as bad as they make out. I'll start by saying we stopped there for three nights from the 4th April 2014, arriving slightly before... More

Literally a last second change from the Jazmines Hotel where our Cosmos/Archers tour was booked and then rebooked after changes to the the dates and venues, (because of the size of our small, 28 person tour). It started off looking promising, with good views from the perimeter, but then not from our rooms. The bedrooms were basic with plastic sheeting... More
