“If you like the end of the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Three days at the end of the world: about 200 km from Pinar del Rio.
15 cabins and a restaurant, thats all.
Nice white sandy beach, to share with 4 other guests, 6 wild pigs and 4 cows.
Food is simple and from the freezer.
Staff is friendly.
Cabins are spatious, very clean, with airco, and some has a view on the ocean.
Offered activities are ok, but are often cancelled.
The beaches nearby are great.
Be aware of the mosquitos!

Room Tip: For a few pesos extra, you have a cabin with view on the ocean.

The beach was nice and the hotel had everything we needed, BUT it was just not very charming.
The food at the restaurant was eatable but very boring - especially after 6 days.
The receptionist was helpful and the waiter at the restaurant for the first few days were pleasant. But after we had been at the hotel a few days a new waiter arrived, and she was not very service minded.
We loved being on a quiet beach but it was a way to long (and expensive) drive for a not perfect hotel.

The place itself is in a beautiful setting - however it is extremely secluded - so going without a car means that you are pretty stuck. Hiring bicycles or bikes is something that is advertised but then not made available. Also the advertised scuba diving and trip to natural park were not possible.

Make sure you bring mosquito spray as there are hundreds of them and you can't purchase any from reception.

Finally the food which is available at the only restaurant is terrible - so great if you plan to lose weight.

The place looks amazing on pics and it does offer total seclusion but unless you have a really long holiday in cuba i do not reccomend venturing this far or staying at this hotel.

Room Tip: There is a loud generator so avoid the hut near that - also make sure you bring mosquito repellant

If you are a nature & diver lover, Villa Cabo San Antonio is the place for you. Although is located at 370 km from Havana, in the northwest part of Cuba, at the very, very end of Guanahacabibes Peninsula in Pinar del Rio is worth the trip. The last 60 km are through lush vegetation and pure nature. And then you will be welcome by a wonderful, friendly staff that will made you feel at home
The Villa has 16 cottages made of wood, but with the comfort of a 3 or a 4 star Cuban Hotel, rooms with private bathrooms, air conditioning, safe deposit box (extra cost), telephone service, mini bar, Satellite television, cool and hot water (the water can be really hot so please be careful to let the tap closed on the cool water side)
And about.
The diving center is well equipped and it is at about 4 km from the reception of Villa Cabo San Antonio, there you can find a snack bar, a shop and a medical post.
They have 27 diving places. For accompanying persons (like myself) they offer excursions to visit places on the area and the spectacular beach where you can really relax and forget all the stress. I do really recommend it!!.
But please if you are looking for other type of entertainment this is not the place for you.

Room Tip: All are well equipped, but paying and extra you can have a partial sea view, since the majority are...

The villas are clean and comfortable, the location is brilliant and there's a deserted white sand beach for at least a mile in either direction. No hotels, no holiday villas, in fact no buildings of any sort.

When we were there the dive boat had broken down, the dive shop at the marina was shut up and reception had no idea when either would be available. There are also walks in the nature reserve advertised at reception. But, be prepared for an 80km round trip (in your car) if you want to take one.

If you want peace and quiet on a remote tropical beach this place is unbeatable. But if you're looking to go diving, birdwatching or nature trekking you probably want to head for Maria la Gorda instead.

Room Tip: For the extra few dollars it's worth taking a villa facing the sea.

After a long and bumpy journey and managing to get pass check point charlie, reservation, passports required, the father of the taxi driver was not allowed in as in the guards words "there is no reason for him to pass" so he had to wait over two hours for his son to return to pick him up (it is about 60kms from the check point). We encountered 5 iguanas on the road which was amazing and a few crabs on their journey to the sea. you arrive to another barrier and a hotel worker checking entry, The cabins are great very spacious and the beds are massive about 7ft, we had a cabin next to the restaurant, which was a tad noisy because of the air con units, but we had a ocean view so not grumbling. The staff were great and very friendly, restaurant needs to be a bit larger and painting, but the food was good although a bit pricey, this I suppose is due to the location! felt like we were on a remote island. There were scooters and a couple of bike, but there were not for hire just for show I think (excuse was the man who runs the business was not around, but a previous TripAdvisor reviewer in November also mentioned this,it was a great shame because it would have been great to explore a bit, so we did a lot of walking, to the Marina, and lighthouse, and along the 6km beach, and encountered lots of wildlife, but you had to pick the times right as there was not a lot of shade. I was well armed with insect repellant, apart from Deet (I took natural repellants) nothing worked, but having said that I could have been bitten alive if I had not sprayed, extremely small biting insects called flying teeth were the worst. The wild pigs and their babies were very amusing, cows wandering around the beach, it was all amazing. The sea beautiful and very clean beach, lots of shells to look for. We had a sunset trip on the hotels catamaran - we were the only passengers, and two great crew - who went out of their way to make it special - thanks guys.

Room Tip: Ocean views the best you could be bitten alive if your balcony faced the forest area
