With a name like this we were expecting something big and very grand so were pleasantly surprised to find a very nicely restored and relatively small building in a quiet square in Trinidad was where we would be staying. Staff are excellent along with the service although you will be surprised, if you turn up relatively late for meals, to find the staff start helping themselves to the buffet and sitting down to eat their own meals while you are still having yours. Rooms are well equipped and comfortable and the bathroom was a good size. The hotel is nicely furnished but more "in period" than modern. Breakfasts were really nice and dinner good, which was had to the accompaniment of a local Cuban group. No wifi but there is a free, but very slow, internet service close to reception. Trinidad isn't very big and can be walked around in an afternoon. If you don't want to walk then just grab a bike taxi. A cab to the nearby beach of Ancon is about US$6. We had dinner on our 2nd night in the Paladar Estelle (private home restaurant) and our meal, which translated as old rope lamb, was interesting and very cheap. At night they're dancing the salsa until the small hours in the bars up on the hill. We had two very relaxing days and nights at the Iberostar and really enjoyed our stay although one night would have been enough to take in Trinidad.
