The bungalow rooms at El Colony were surpisingly good. Very romy with a nice bathroom setup and good vies. The grounds are also nice and well maintained. The daily buffet was not very good and not attractively presented either. This is a good place to stay if one is going scuba diving or snorkeling.

We stayed here for 4 nights in August. It’s not luxury, but you’re probably not expecting that if you’ve made your way to Isla de la Juventud. It’s a bit dated like a lot of the state hotels in Cuba – some holes in the ceiling in the lobby area and restaurant and pool area is a bit tatty. But... More

The hotel staff were extremely attentive, and despite the language barrier on my behalf did their utmost to answer any questions or meet any requests I had. Those that manned the restaurant were especially friendly and welcoming - particularly the older gentleman with the black bow tie - and the food and service they delivered exceeded all my expectations.

It's not straightforward to get to, but if you wanted easy you would have gone somewhere else. Cuba is at a moment of change with the opening of its borders. The hotel is plain but clean, the staff are very helpful, the hotel restaurant is distinctly average, mainly due to the limitations of getting fresh veg. The pool is lovely... More

I recently had the pleasure of spending 6 nights at the Hotel El Colony while on a fly fishing trip to the Isle de Juventud. Having arrived after an early morning flight from Havana, we were greeted by huge smiles from the reception staff, shown our room, then invited to eat breakfast. The hotel is kept spotlessly clean, the majority... More

Probably the only resort/hotel in the Caribbean without guests! And the place is actually beautiful and very well-maintained. It has a big pool and a small beach. The bar that juts out to the ocean unfortunately is not in service anymore because it was destroyed during a cyclone many years ago. The restaurant serves so-so food. The staff here are... More

Visited here 15-20 Jan 2015 As much as its documented by many as hard to get to it's really not. The hard bit is confirming bookings in advance but with not many guests you're sure to get a room but it might not be a Bungalow. Fly with Aero Caribbean from Havana (2000hrs dept Terminal 1) to Nueva Gerona (2030hrs... More

I'm not giving a poor here because the whole experience was more sad than bad. We've stayed five nights at El Colony, we booked in advance and the touristic operator (Cubaism) system showed us that the hotel was almost fully booked - that was a lie! We've been there in the new year's and it was completely empty, only me... More

A Nice out of the way Resort. Most of the people that come to this resort are going diving or snorkeling. There was a group from England of 28 university students & 3 professors. We had the resort to ourselves during the day. We took a bungalow and it was well worth it. Very nice. This resort runs on 220... More
