“Long walk uphill”
Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

Ok accommodations. Check room before settling in. Our room had no water in bathroom and was filled with dead bugs. Once we complained they gave me a room in the bungalows. Much better!

Stayed May 2012, traveled with friends

We were traveling independently in Cuba and had booked this over the internet from the UK. We stayed 4 nights. The rooms were little cement cabins with good air conditioning. They were clean and had balconys. The pool was nice to have because it was very hot and humid (we were there in early June). Like any buffet meals the food gets a bit samey but I really liked all the cut up fruit. I am extremely anti-smoking and the only thing that bothered me is that they didn't stop people from smoking while they were standing in the swimming pool! Very different than western standards. But that's Cuba!

Probably the best thing was the Cubatur lady who helps us with day trips, walking tours, taxis, etc. We had an excellent walking tour of Trinidad with a guide named Rafael. He was very knowledgable and helpful.

We ate lunch at Sol Ananda in town off the main square (there are several squares). It is a living museum and it was excellent food. The live Cuban music added to the atmosphere.

Stayed here on tour of Cuba. As mentioned below is very average. Rooms a fair hike up the hill from reception and Buffett. Rooms were clean and the shower worked. Had to be creative to flush the toilet but we had just spent five weeks in south America so were just happy to have a bathroom that didn't stink. Had the Buffett breakfast once and didnt bother going again the next morning. Dinner was average. Easy walk into town especially for those wanting to go to the cave night club and house of the music. It's just 700m down a walk way.

The hotel is a little out of the way, and up a hill and some of the rooms/chalets are further uphill.

The room was clean and the bathroom was adequate. The bar was a nice area, but the dinner buffet was awful and would avoid it like the plague. We had already paid for the meals with the room, would avoid this option if you can and eat elsewhere.

The tour rep (think it was cubatur) in reception was really helpful and even recommended other places to eat. Arranged some great trips out and was very helpful.

Probably would only stay here again if there was nowhere else to stay in town. Should have stayed at a casa!!

We stayed at the Las Cuevas last year during a round trip in Cuba. The hotel is located on a hill on the side of the center of Trinidad. We took our rental car and found it in once. You can walk into Trinidad in about 15 minutes, so it is a little walk. We actually liked the hotel to be a little way out of the center, because it was nie and quiet at night. And we didn't mind the walk after dinner.

It is a good hotel, quite big and the rooms are clean.

All rooms have balconies and some have a great view over Trinidad. breakfast is OK, seeing the Cuban food is just not that great most of the time. But they take effort.

We did not have dinner in the restaurant, so can't say anything about that.

The hotel is set on a steep hill which wasn't a problem once we found our way around, very difficult at night with insufficient lighting. The room was adequately furnished and spotlessly clean with a large balcony, shared with next door. The refrigerator was incredibly noisy and had to be turned off to get some sleep. The water from the shower was no more than a trickle and could barely be used. The restaurant is diabolical, it opens at 8:00pm and you have to get there early to get anything. There is very little choice and there was no attempt whatsoever to keep anything hot. Everything I tasted, other than the coffee, was pretty awful. Breakfast wasn't much better so I opted for a freshly cooked omelete which was OK but I was only allowed one egg. The service generally was poor but the restaurant staff were down right rude. Not a bad location for the heritage site provided you can climb the hill.

We stayed here with our 4 year old son. We found the hotel to be good, apart from the water pressure, really bad just a trickle from the shower, hardly enough to get my hair wet never mind rinse it!
Staff were friendly and helpful and we liked the pool.
Breakfast and dinner buffet not too impressive, but not the worst. Get to dinner early as can get hard to find a table.
Good location for visiting Trinidad.
