Upon arrival we took about 45 minutes to get checked in. There were only 10 arrivals in total but there was so much confusion and disarray at the reception. These rooms should have been allocated before we got there to avoid such confusion. Trying to find rooms and keys that went with the rooms was disastrous. The rooms were outdated... More

We stayed at Don Linos from March 16 to March 23. We have been to other Cuban 2-3 star and have never been disappointed so far( do not expect 5 star and you will enjoy). The staff was excellent and friendly. We had room #2 (or 1002), nice room , close to everything, in room safe, no cards for towels,... More

From mid-February to the first week of March 2014 I enjoyed a beautiful, relaxing and fun filled three week stay at the only place in Cuba for me! I know there are many lovely hotels in this country, as I've seen them inside and out. However for my money and my time spent alone with medical issues and still wanting... More

I have just returned from another 2 weeks at Don Lino. The brochure and description state there is a currency exchange. When I was there last year they had closed the exchange but due to pressure from the guests and the closest bank being in Santa Lucia (requires transportation via taxi or carriage $$$$$) were exchanging some money at the...

4 of us ladies went to this hotel being on a budget. Reading the rewies everybody was raving about this hotel. After our long winter and a great price we decided to try this hotel. you are an hour away from the airport and the long ride at 4 am was quite bumpy, but that did not bother us. Upon... More

The bungalow was very nice and clean. Room... More

Quiet - The Don Lino is sleepy hollow, for my wife and I that was perfect, exactly what we wanted; no internet, no emails, just a quiet place to relax and recharge. The entertainment staff tried in vain a few times to organize a volleyball game or Spanish lessons by the pool. By my observation, over two weeks, these offers... More

I have travelled to various resorts in Cuba in the past. Therefore I was shocked by DonLino. I am not a picky person, and understand the economy and living conditions in Cuba. The room in general was acceptable, dirty floors, used soap, filthy windows etc, but very clean beds and linen. The food was pretty much un edible, again I... More

Small unpretentious hotel has the quiet, away feel I was looking for. Met some very nice fellow Canadians and enjoyed their company. We had the room upgrade, will not do that again. They are dark and musty smelling. I had requested a fridge and had to throw away the gluten free pancakes I had brought. The camarera will tell you... More

What can I say.... I had been researching this resort for awhile now and it wasn't until I read that they finally had a 24 hr bar that I said ok, I'm going!!! So glad I did. The people here are great!!! And for the most part most of the reviews I have read are pretty accurate. It is like... More
