The dining room outside setting floors not kept clean - Cigaret butts. papers ... all sort of stuff floor... More

If you've read the reviews, you will not be surprised. We were looking for dirt cheap and we found it. We were picked up from the airport by taxi because no one else on our (packed) Sunwing flight was going there. Our first room was horrible - no doubt about it. It wasn't clean (*very* dirty and I'm not being... More

If you like fancy, this is not the resort for you. If you like big resorts, this is not the resort for you. If you like big shows and partying, this is not the resort for you. Not that there's anything wrong with that. BUT if you like your quiet time, animals, the country and generally just slowing down the... More

I felt like I had to crate an account just to warn people about this ''resort'' well it must be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in and I have no idea how this dump got a three star rating. Booked an ocean view cabana, the room is old with ancient dirty curtains and moldy pillows, ac barely worked.... More

not for children, good for quiet time. change currency at the airport as closet bank is 8 kilm away. no credit cards here so bring cash for cabs. Use locals for tours(cash). Need water shoes for the beach and walking (in the event of rain) on ceramic tiles which are every where and slippery when wet. Bring your own spices... More

It isn't a fancy resort, but I enjoyed my first 2 visits - food was not fancy but acceptable and staff tried to correct any issues. Management apparently changed last year and my 3rd visit was intolerable. Rooms were overbooked, had to move 3 times and it was almost a week before getting the type of room I paid for.... More

We visited Don Lino and Cuba for the first time in early February. We were travelling with our daughter and son-in-law who had been there before so we had a good idea what to expect. We loved the quiet friendly atmosphere and the proximity to the local community in Playa Blanca. The beach at Playa Blanca by the way is... More

Third time to Cuba, first time at Don Lino. Was a nice, quiet resort which allowed us to get the rest and relaxation we were looking for...Must say I enjoyed our time and the staff is incredible, however the old men with their young, hired girls was sick to see! It's too bad that the locals turn a blind eye.... More

Date: February, 2015 Don Lino Resort, Holguin. I had visited Cuba 4 years in a row now and made a good choice this February (2015) not only to escape the harsh weather in Ontario, but I also enjoy my stay in this relatively small place. There were about 150 people (capacity is about 200) This was my first stay at... More

This is not a good resort for families, or for couples who like to see older men with hired girls. It is seedy to say the least. The beach is small and you need water shoes to go into the water, but there are lots of fish to see, so bring a mask. Bring stuff for locals, they are amazing... More
