This is a great accommodation option in Holguin. Sara and David are excellent hosts, hospitable and happy to share their local knowledge. Accommodation is of a excellent standard, with the garden a very relaxing place to unwind post a day of exploring Holguin, and its surrounds. Breakfast was tasty, ample, and tweaked to your specific request. The home is a short walk from the center of Holguin, and within walking distance of most places you'd like to visit. We'd totally recommend Hostal Refugio de Reyes as your accommodation option in Holguin Cuba

I have visited Cuba countless times and I have always stayed in casa particulares and it is a fact that Hostal Refugio de Reyes is in a class of its own. The house looks typical from the street but once you enter the property the city is magically gone and you are in a tranquil botanical garden with seating areas, a pool, and dining areas. We rented “apartment 1” and I was amazed to find glazed windows, hot water, a large TV, and a modern AC unit that was totally silent. I have never seen such modern conveniences in any other casa in Cuba. Our apartment was cleaned every day until it was spotless. The hosts, David and Sara, are gracious people who are eager to help make your stay comfortable in any way that they can. They also are artists in the kitchen. Do not think about missing breakfast, it is huge and delicious. The first course is a fruit salad that Sara and David have carved to produce a sculpture that you almost feel guilty about eating because it should be put on display for all to see. The rest of the meals were equally impressive. If you want to live in total comfort, enjoy spectacular breakfasts and be made to feel totally at home then look no further than Hostal Refugio de Reyes

We spent our first 2 nights in Cuba at this place and could not have been happier. Sarah and David are warm and welcoming and were always so nice about recommending restaurants, arranging taxis, etc. Sarah is a botanist and has filled every corner of their gorgeous yard with plants, creating a lush tropical garden right in the centre of Holguin. We had the rooftop suite and it was sparkling clean and tastefully decorated and very private feeling. My 9 year old son loved their pool and swam at every opportunity - there is a huge mango tree beside it that was full of mangos hanging over the pool when we were there. Their breakfasts are a total experience - so much love and creativity went into the food and the garden setting made it extra special. Easy walk to the main pedestrian area. Do not hesitate to book this and also I would email them even if trip advisor is saying they are full. That's what happened when I looked and I almost didn't bother contacting them directly - I am so happy I did!!

We stayed for a night at Refugio de Reyes. True to its name, this beautiful home is a sight to behold. A lush botanical garden surrounds a lovely pool and patio. The apartments we stayed in are located behind the pool. The location is perfect within a short walk to downtown. The owners were kind, gracious, and helpful. The rooms were immaculate with air conditioning, fans, and refrigerators. Breakfast was presented like a catered affair. I would definitely stay again.

A combination of Cuban warmth, confort, good taste and beautifully designed gardens and backyard the Hostel Refugio de Reyes is by far the best place to stay in Holguín city. Their owners David and Sara are highly educated and charismatic people who know how to provude a service of excellence. Their breakfast is simply delicious and abundant in fresh tropical fruits. Their pool is surrounded by a stunning Mango tree and exotic plants, in harmony with the architecture of the house which was built in the 50's. My boyfriend and I stayed there for 5 nights and enjoyed the cleanliness of our room, very spacious and confortable. Our bed was king size and we stayed at the upper room, with a nice view to the pool and the garden. I highly reccomend this place to anyone who looks for a quite, confortable place, with a convenient location in Holguín. Their hosts are wonderful people who always try to find solutions and good and safe recommendations to their clients.
