Reviewed January 12, 2008

The Villa el Bosque started life as the Holguin Country Club, before the Revolution of 1959. It was then transformed into a motel; the parking spaces for the huge US cars at that time can still be seen next to the villas.

The hotel affects a tropical appearance, with leave roofs and palm trees in the foyer, although there are new modern extensions. Reception procedures can be lengthy, but the individual villas (=cabins) are clean and comfortable. Each has a colour TV and bathroom with the usual facilities.

The air conditioned restaurant serves a range of Cuban and international cuisine, and the service can be first class if you are lucky enough to be served by one of the more enthusiastic staff. There is a second, smaller restaurant, a discotheque and a pool.

With B&B rates of less than £20 per single adult, this is real value, and less costly than a "casa particular". The hotel is about a 30 minute walk from Holguin city centre; it is downhaill all the way....

If you require accommodation, and the Villa El Bosque is full, try the nearby Hotel Pernik.

  • Liked — Excellent service in the restaurant.
  • Disliked — Sometimes slow registration procedure on arrival
  • Stayed September 2004, traveled solo
