This is not luxury hotel but the price/value ratio is fantastic. As stated in the name, the hotel is organized in small villas. Rooms are large and comfortable with all commodities. Hotel workers are very keen. It is well situated in a very calm area, not too far from city center that you can reach with less than 30min walk.... More

To be honest, I can not give this hotel higher than 3 stars. None the less, I thoroughly enjoyed my week there, and the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. Everyone from the receptionists to the maids to the security guards to the restaurant workers--I would give each of them 5 stars easily! I went with a... More

I live in Jamaica and went on school trip to Cuba back in 2011. There is simply no where like Cuba. The people are the kindest you'll ever meet in life. They walk around at any time of the day because there's relatively no crime. they have parties everyday after a certain time. They really just know how to have... More

Far from the center, far from everything in fact. The swimming pool doesn't exist anymore (since 2 years) and the breakfast is very poor. A casa particulares in the center would be a much better idea.

The proparty is good, room was big and cleaned every day. Staff is verry friendly and try to help you in all their ways. Only when we arrived they told us there is no swimmingpool this summer, we were really disappointed. We choose this hotel to stay specially for the swimming pool. We called the organization but unfortunately they didden`t... More

Spent 2 weeks at Villa Gaviotta; much prefer over an all-inclusive resort. This hotel is actually large homes once owned by rich American's in the past, divided into a couple of very large rooms in there centre of the nicest, most quiet neighbourhood in Santiago. There is security at this resort, they are not in your face at all but... More

First of all, you need to put things in perspective. You are in Cuba. The locals do the best they can, with what they have. You can't expect 5 Star quality at One Star prices. That being said...my personal experience during my visit 18-25 Nov13 was amazing. I have visited Santiago de Cuba several times now over the past two... More

After arriving during the middle of Carnival, we quickly learned that we were staying a very safe neighbourhood, and that Raul Castro was staying in a compound near us. There were military and police everywhere. The problem was, we had paid online, up-front for 5 nights, and at check-in were told there were no rooms. And no rooms in the... More
