Having read earlier reviews of this hotel, and even though we were only due to stay here for 1 night; I was dreading the experience. The reality turned out to be much better than either of us were expecting. The hotel is more a up-market hostel, and is obviously tired, but from a location point of view, I doubt if... More

This hotel gives you great comfort for cuban standards. The rooms are well kept. They are clean. The bathroom is fully functional with a walk in shower. The pool is amazing. So try to free up some time to enjoy it. Service is friendly. We had a great time. What I really appreated is the architecture of this Soviet-era clifftop... More

For a two star hotel, I personally thought it was great! Most of the hotels I had stayed at that had 4 and 5 stars were not even close to what I found at Pasacaballo. The rooms were super clean, AC was cold, Bathrooms were clean and hot water was available. I personally loved it! Front desk staff was not... More

This is no exotic tourist hotel but it gives those who are sufficiently adventurous to step outside the all-inclusive resorts the chance to sample something different. The warmth of the welcome was without precedent, even among that which we had come to expect from friendly Cuban people. The rooms are not as luxurious as you will find in the main... More

Cienfuegos a quaint seaport town founded by the French in the early 19th Century. The Hotel - Islazul Pasacaballo is situated on beautiful grounds, which is its major asset. Accomodations is best described as economical i.e. no frills like an ice machine. The room was well kept and on our television we could access a Canadian channel. We enjoyed our... More

We were in a group that somehow was bumped from our booked hotel, and wound up here. Dirty, dated, noisy, horrible breakfast. Located far from the town. Strange pillow makes it hard to sleep. Took over a half hour to check in our group of 9 couples.It's all been said before. On the positive side, the structure itself can be... More

Think this has had a recent makeover! A former soviet concrete structure that has had modern artwork, colour and furnishings added. Rooms were large and comfortable and the bathrooms the best we saw in 6 weeks in Cuba! Its main problem being it is miles from anywhere and transportation is essential. Dining room is somewhat austere and more in keeping... More
