my friend and I stayed at Don Lino in Feb, 2015, we had stayed at a 5 star in Cuba years ago. I must say that the resort is only rated as a 2.5, but the staff is a 5 plus. I have never been to a place where the staff goes out of there way to get to know... More

This hotel is such a great place for families. There are no visible men or women looking for" Cuban entertainment" like I have seen at other hotels or seen in other reviews. The beach is rocky but you can swim there ( best with swim shoes). Lots of sand for kids and there always seems to be a sun chair... More

Basic small hotel. Very clean and well kept. Located close to the village and therefore feels like you're in a village yourself with cows roaming at night and roosters singing in the morning. Horseback riding is included and is a must! Countryside is gorgeous when you go through the fields. The beach is small and clean, but extremely rocky and... More

This was a spur of the moment vacation and my first Cuban visit. I stayed in one of the older units, which was for me comfortable. I enjoyed the large shower and bed. The unit was air conditioned, although it was off when I first entered, so the first evening was a bit warm to start. THERE IS NO REFRIGERATOR... More

This in okay hotel complex, in the middle of nowhere. It was very windy when I was there and that you drove you off the beach in the afternoon, so if that is a concern, get to the beach in the morning when there is more of an off shore wind. Beach loungers are plentiful and there is no competition... More

This was my first time in Cuba and definitely won't be my last. The resort is small and we met great people throughout the week. The staff was very friendly. Tony did a great job at organizing games and had everyone involved. He also answered any questions we had about the resort. Will definitely be going back to Don Lino!

My wife and two teenage daughters visited Don Lino for a week and feel this place deserves a fair review. We read as many reviews as we could and decided that for such a low price(378.00 per), if we didn't like it, we could rent a casa in town. Bus ride to the resort was fine, about an hour, check...
