The beach is small but nice, water shoes are good if you have soft feet.Fishing from shore is possible but fish the tide with shrimp for best results.Shallow reefs just off shore are best you can book a trip with a local fisherman very affordable.Food is good fresh fruit and veg.There is...

I have been a frequent quest at Don Lino and would be remiss if I didn't point out something in "Jeanclaude F" review. Of course you are going to see "creatures" such as rats! You can go to the 5* resorts in Veradero and see this there too!! As for the entertainment staff, this is one 3* resort, where I... More

It was our first evening and we were having dinner. Suddenly we saw this large black creature dart, fast as lightening beneath the tables. We were tired from the flight and only had one glass of wine so it could not have been the booze. ...'Is that a rat' my wife asked? 'Can't be' I replied, never seen one that... More

Just returned from a week at this very small and very quiet resort. If you want a place for peace and tranquility to write the Great Canadian Novel, then this is the place for you. No distracting entertainment, bingo, spanish or dance lessons. I attribute this to the time of year. The restaurant staff and cooks are very very friendly... More

It is an amazing little resort. The people who work there all try to hard. Lot's of smiles. No expectation for gratituties however they... More

Don lino is a small resort in the country. Stayed in one of the older beach front rooms. Rooms need a little upgrading but they are adequate. The staff is the best I have had at any Cuban resorts. The food is surprisingly good but gets a little boring after the same food everyday. This is not a large party... More
