Hostal de los Reyes is an absolutely amazing place. We arrived here pretty tired after a 6 hours trip from Baracoa at the end of almost 3 weeks spent travelling around Cuba and we immediately felt welcomed and pampered. The hosts, David and Sara, are extremely nice and caring and their house is absolutely lovely with a fantastic garden full of beautiful plants and an inviting swimming pool. We had booked 2 rooms, the roof top suite for ourselves and another one in the garden for our kids and they were both beautiful, with huge beds (with freshly ironed white cotton bed linen), bathrooms with great showers and very big towels. Not to mention that they have set a generator powerful enough to guarantee the air-conditioning of the rooms even during the frequent interruption of electricity supply! Sara was so thoughtful to give us extra towels for the swimming pool and an umbrella to go around the city while raining. And the breakfast was absolutely fantastic:  everything homemade (including the bread which David bakes personally), a wide variety of things (fruit/vegetables/cheese/eggs/ fresh juice etc...) and the table was so nicely set with even flowers.They also helped us arrange a taxi for our next destination. I regret we spent one night only here and highly recommend this place to anyone travelling to Holguín or to Cuba in general: it is worth going to Holguín just to spend a couple of days here. It is an absolute hidden gem!

We really enjoyed our stay in Holguin at the Refugio des Reyes casa. The casa is close to the center, 10-15 minutes on foot. David and Sara are very friendly hosts, their hobby is plant breeding. Their garden is a real botanical garden. The breakfasts prepared by David are real works of art. Our room was on the top floor with completely independent access. If I'm in Holguin I will definitely come back to them. Sándor, Hungary

My family and I stayed at Refugio de Reyes in 2015 and I must say that I have never ever stayed in a place with such professionalism, service and quality of meals like Refugio de Reyes. Sara and David are outstanding people, charismatic, attentive, honest, loving, and much more. We stayed friends after our stay there. I have lived in USA for over 30 years and have traveled many places (5 star hotels) but I have never felt so well attended and served with such high quality as Refugio de Reyes. There is not enough stars to rate them, they are overqualified in all the aspects. I will continue to stay with Sara and David every time I travel to Holguin. Our family is from Granma. We love you Sara and David and I pray we can see you soon!! Martha y Amaury.

I was going to stay 3 days, but I extended it to 5, in large part because of Sara and David’s incredible hospitality, kindness and helpfulness. Don’t look any further than Refugio des Reyes. It is a 10’ walk to the center of the city. Sara and David will have a taxi waiting for you at the airport if you wish. Don’t bother going to restaurants. The beautiful, delicious and ample breakfast will power you through the day. Let them know if you wish supper and at what time. Their meals are exceptional in beauty and flavour. The rooms are neat and clean with everything you need, including a safe, TV, fan, air conditioning and private bath. I loved taking an afternoon dip in their pool. The plants create an oasis and the garden is magical. Just book with them. You will be delighted.

Hostal Refugio de Reyes was everything we needed and MORE for a week long couple’s hideaway. I am Cuban American and my husband and I had not seen eachother for 11 months. We stayed in the upstairs apartment. This was the first time we’ve stayed in Holguin together and the comfort of this place made us feel like we were home. David and Sara are the type of hosts that you wish for - attentive to your needs, extremely helpful with things to do and places to eat nearby, and not to mention incredible cooks - as the in house breakfast spread every morning and dinner was delicious and worth every penny. We got a chance to mingle with other visitors, but it was still private enough to not even notice them. Really quiet and comfortable place to work in also if you need to work remotely while there, as we did. I can’t recommend this place enough and now have our go-to place to stay next time we’re in Holguin. Muchas gracias por todo!

We spent a night at Refugio de Reyes before a flight home. We would certainly go back! The house is indeed a refuge. Sara's botanical expertise is evident in the extensive garden. David's entomological expertise is not (fortunately for us). Their food is delicious and the presentation impressive. This felt like foodie heaven.

Wow! I cannot say enough about the wonderful experience my wife and I had. The atmosphere is out of this world. The 5 star meals were to die for....breakfast, lunch and supper. The attentive service and comradery from the hosts, Sarah and David was beyond amazing. Communication was easy. Both hosts speak exceptional English...better than most Canadians ;) The king size bed was the most comfortable bed I've slept in in a very long time. The casa is very central and it is very easy to navigate the area. I just can't say enough about the wonderful 5 day experience. It absolutely has to be on your must do list if you find yourself in Holguin.

When we travel, we look for unique experiences. Sara and David offer travellers a beautiful house in Holguin, fifteen minutes from the airport, with a lovely garden, a swimming pool and very comfortable rooms with their own bathrooms. The rooms are separated into apartments and each looks over the garden so there is always a lovely breeze and birds singing. Sara and David are trained biologists, so the garden has a spectacular diversity of plants and fruit trees. Even better, Sara, David and their family are lovely people it is a privilege to spend time with. And they are great cooks. David bakes his own bread and grills meat in their outdoor oven, while Sara makes lovely vegetable dishes, sauces and desserts. I am hoping at some point they will offer some conserving and cooking classes! Their reviews are excellent because they are excellent. Enjoy!

A gem in the heart of Holguin city, Hostal Refugio de Los Reyes, as the name suggests, is fit for royalty, but priced for the modest traveler. The accommodation is simple, but very comfortable and impeccably clean. Rental options are cabin style buildings on the same property as a family of 3 generations. As this is a family property, respectful tourism is essential here. There is a very nice shared pool and outside lounging area. Sara and David are outstanding hosts, who understand hospitality and will cater to your travel needs. Sara is a botanist by profession, and her meticulous work with the plants and trees of the property give the feel that you’re immersed in a microcosm of the Cuban jungle. The food that comes out of Sara and David’s kitchen is among the best prepared in Eastern Cuba, and better than the vast majority of what’s available in hotels and even fancy restaurants. You can’t go wrong requesting the dinner service, and breakfasts are 5-star quality. Book this homestay well in advance, because when the Covid pandemic comes to an end, they’re sure to be full every night.
