Just returned from 2 weeks here. Try to get a pool view room #1 to 12 or an ocean view room. Avoid staying in a bungalow. Resort is clean, simple with good food and great service. Take a horse and buggy ride to Playa Blanca to swim and then go to lunch at the little nearby restaurant for shrimp pizza!...

*Great for a single lady, 15 nights stay. *No children in the resort , unless it's a weekend and local families are buying day passes, since its seems to be affordable for them. *Immediate Beach at the resort is not suitable for swimming, you might get poked by sea urchin even through your water shoes. However , snorkeling is amazing...

I've been here many many times, it's a no frills resort , always met great people, this place is all what you make it. Not for the beach enthusiasts ! They are trying to improve each year! With the right company you can have a blast , not 100's of people like other resorts! The staff are friendly, and our...

The 547 reviews below are mostly filled with opinion good and bad. This review is different. It is mostly fact. Read them all and form your own opinion. In February of 2017, Don Lino was under construction with four new chalets being built. Our tour company, Hola Sun did not inform us and because of the construction our room often...

The Villa Don Lino resort is a disaster. We felt like we were held hostage to the staff's whims, or lack thereof, and their total absence of service/hospitality. We have been visiting Cuba since the year 2000 and have enjoyed every visit, except this one. A dead dog washed up on the beach with a noose around it's neck. A...

Pros & cons. First the staff & locals are really friendly. The place is small & comfortable the buildings are dated but kept clean. With any review of Cuba, you have to remember the difficulties the Cubans face getting supplies we tourists have come to take for granted. The food was just average & the buffets had trouble keeping hot...

This was our first time back to Don Lino in 2 years. We stayed in rooms across from the pool and found them a little larger than the bugalows we stayed in last time. They are currently building more bungalows behind where our rooms were but the constuction did not interfere with our vacation in any way. The big bar...

In January 2017 I revisited the Don Lino and, after a four-year absence, was pleased to find that little had changed. Upon arrival to the resort, I noticed that my bungalow was in need of some upgrades. A nonworking toilet, safe, and air conditioner were all promptly repaired but the corroded shower head begged for replacement, forcing use of the...

We flew Sunwing to Holguin with a late departure due to weather (no biggie) landed in Holguin and quickly got through customs . Arrived at Villa Don Lino @ 12:30 am grabbed a drink with a friend who had waited for our arrival while the young lady at the front desk checked in the only other guest arriving with us...
