Lovely beach for snorkelling or privacy. Low key and natural. Lots of animals around, almost like a farm - horses, pigs, cows etc. Unfortunately, due to the remoteness, the facilities are lacking. Things break or wear out and can't easily be replaced. We switched rooms several times due to important things being broken - e.g. flooding, no toilet seat, etc....

travelled Dec 2 to Dec 9/16 Just when I thought it couldn't get better... the food has improved again. With a new supplier there is daily fresh vegetables--lettuce!!. The bands have improved as well with new additions to each group. The new roof was completed on the beach bar while I was there and soon to be opened. As usually...

This was our 4th time to Don Lino and it seemed like we never left. There are always maintenance problems in Cuba but they try their very best to stay on top of problems and help the best they can. The food was very good and plentiful, even though the selection was limited. Repeat guests enjoy a great Lobster dinner....

We booked for seven nights on a last-minute type of purchase. The star rating was not high but the reviews were good. I'm happy to report that the reviews were accurate. We had a room on the second floor. For most of the day we could sit on the balcony in great comfort, both cooled and warmed by the hot...

I have just returned from my third enjoyable stay at Don Lino. I flew from Toronto November 23 on Sunwing November 23 returning December 7. My flight left pretty much on time, 6:30 a.m. One big reason I chose that early morning flight Sunwing offered that was because it arrives early in Cuba just before 10 so I would have...

We stayed in a two floor building last year but have booked a beach side cottage for our next trip. The food is basic...

My wife and I have been to Cuba at least a dozen times, but the first in this area, and resort. We stayed Nov. 13th for just a week, and we will be back for longer after 'checking it out'! The Don Lino is a wonderful resort, for what it is. As many have mentioned it is not a 'party...

Small resort, very country like maybe not enough comfort for many. We enjoyed the people of Cuba. Take a buggy ride in the country side. Food is OK needs fresh fruit and no white wine all week. We had two lobster dinners only one eating area. No water for 3 days and no free bottled water. No water to flush...
