We knew exactly what we were getting into going in to don lino. We have always avoided the big resorts because of the drunken idiots by the pool bar. Don Lino was exactly what we wanted. The staff incredible helpful never disapointed us with service. The food the same everywhere just less choices. But enough choices to keep us happy.... More

We are just back from the Don Lino, I didn't really know what to expect as it was only rated 2 1/2 star, what a lovely hotel it turned out to be. We stayed in the newer bungalows, our room was clean and comfortable. Great view of the ocean and a short walk from everything. I didn't have too much... More

Having visited a few Cuba resorts in the past, and never staying at less than a 4*, we were a little apprehensive about booking a 2 1/2* here. To say that we were pleasantly surprised would be an understatement ! Having said that, there are a few things that you should be aware of. This place does not have some... More

Fhe same food was taken out daily, and then reprocessed for the next day. The problem is that rhe staff just did not care when they were... More

Hi, I returned Dec 26, 2014 from one week at the Don Lino- -I guess we need new experiences so decided to write mine- some moaning and complaining and some suggestions and some compliments.
