My wife and I stayed here Feb 25 & 26 as part of a cycling tour of Western Cuba. The room was average; we had 2 twin beds and found them firm. The pool is excellent; it looks out upon the lake and there is a convenient pool bar with service. We found the breakfast buffett a little lacking in... More

Once more we fell in love with this fresh water lake. Rooms are clean. Food is decent and inexpensive. We did shift the beds to the opposite wall, cause we kept hitting our heads on the wall suspended TV on the way to and from the balcony. The music at the pool did not seem as loud, and they even...

Went fishing with a guide for large mouth bass. What a great day to spend on the water. Caught many fish, which we released. Lunch at the Rio Negro restaurant perched atop the shoreline... More

This is another Soviet-style hotel in the mountains, but with a superb view of Lake Hanabanilla beyond the pool. This is a great place to relax with a beer by the pool, and you can even take a boat ride round the lake. It has a fascinating concrete labyrinth for children to play in. We didn't dine here, but at... More

The hotel is located by a wonderful lake. Rooms at floor 2 and above have great views. Hotel is clean and staff ok ok. it´s a good place for small hikes and fishing. These are basically the only good thing of the hotel. Food is basic and lacks variety. Rooms are small and there are no double beds. mattresses are... More

We were the only guests staying at the hotel but there were an army of workers which they housed in the hotel. This ruined our stay because they were noisy, rude and ate everything in site before we even got to the buffet. The rooms were dirty, need repair and are unsafe because the balcony wouldn't close at all.Hanabanilla is... More

We stayed here for a night on a tour. Really is set idyllically on Lake Hanabanilla, was a great sight at sunset & sunrise. Food was solid (for Cuba) & the bar staff were fantastic. The only drawback was that the walls are paper-thin (you can hear people snoring in the next room) & currently the pool & discotheque is... More

We have stayed there several times and been very pleased each time with opportunities to hike to a summit of one of the rounded hills nearby and once by boat to a waterfall, where we could swim also ahhhh! Very reasonable rooms - I think 30 or 35 cuc per night. yes, food is limited, but good nonetheless - I... More
