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

We stayed in El Colony in May - the place was compleately empty. For a total number o 3 guests it seemed that 30 people are employed, performing useless tasks. This adds to the rather outdated architecture, typical 80s resort, very common in Eastern Europe 30 years ago. Despite that the bungalows are renovated: clean, modern and comfortable. The food...

My review is longer in coming than it should be so it pre-dates the date on the review. There is very little on Isla de Juventud, but this is the thing that makes it worth going to. The diving is fantastic and pristine, like the Caymans were 20+ years ago before all the tourists ruined the coral. The equipment and... More
