I stayed at this hotel with my family as part of an Explore! Tour in August '06. Our first impressions were confused - bright yellow slightly damp smelling rooms, dodgy water and electric supply, fried pasta for breakfast, bread with rainbow sprinkles and on! After 2 nights at Hotel Kohly we spent 2 weeks travelling all round the most amazing and unique experience that is Cuba and then returned to Kohly with a whole new view.
It is a fantastic place! What had previously been viewed through jaundicied western eyes as faults became nothing more than entertaining Cuban idiosyncrasies. At least it never had ferns growing or lizards in the showers as occured elsewhere!
Clean and cheerful rooms, safe surroundings, beautiful clear, outdoor pool, great food (if still quirky!) and skillful evening entertainment from a sycro-swim salsa combo made this stay a delight for all the family.
