The location is lovely, very open with woodland with small blocks of accommodation. We were only staying for one night so thought it looked ok. Shown to my room the door opened and the most disgusting smell of stale cigar smoke greeted me so I said I wasn't staying in that room. Given another I thought all would be fine.... More

Beautiful rural setting,accommodation in small blocks. Rooms are basic and far from pristine. However the food was passable and the staff made heroic efforts to please and entertain us. A reasonable overnight stop.

I was on a long, whirlwind tour of central Cuban cities that involved much bus time, traffic and long hours. We limped in later at night into this wonderful oasis and the day was saved and the tour group completely revived. This is a North American looking and quality hotel outside Sancti Spiritus. The grounds are huge, with a lovely... More

We were led to believe that the accommodation was used for the Russian military for rest and recuperation many years ago. We stayed one night in rooms that were tired but everything was clean. the restaurant provided us with a small choice of buffet but it was well cooked and presented. The staff were very good and did all they... More

Stayed one night here are part of a Cuban tour. Rooms were clean and had very efficient air conditioning. The bathroom needed a bit of attention (show now really working and the knob fell off in my hand.....) The restaurant had a reasonable selection and there was entertainment in the form of 3 singers/guitars during the meal. The evening entertainment... More

Thankfully only stayed one night. The room was falling to pieces, the bathroom was very mouldy, the taps wouldn't turn off, the pool was green......... Need I say more. On the plus side - the staff were nice

I stayed for 1 night as part of a tour of Cuba, was 1 of the most basic hotels used by the operator but was certainly the most fun!! Old & dated, but if you accept it for what it is you could really enjoy your stay, not sure about more than 1 night though, we didn't get time to... More

Bar is small and there was a big queue and a bit of a mess up at dinner as there wasn't enough tables but maybe they aren't used to this size of group staying! Rooms were in... More

Quite a simple hotel built by the Russian when they were involved with Cuba. The food was good and the rooms clean. Spent some time in the pool with a crowd of Cubans, all very happy.Take care using the steps to get in and out of the pool just tubing no treads.Located some way from the town.This was the poorest...
