Villa Islazul Yaguanabo
Ranked #133 of 146 Cienfuegos B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 September 2013

Our experience of this place was a positive one. The room was basic but clean and comfortable which I think is all you can really ask for. It reminded me of a holiday inn in the uk, but with a beuatiful view of the caribbean sea. Also the breakfast was acceptible and the bar reasonably priced. The only downside was the hot water was intermittent, but it was so warm when we were there it wasn't really an issue.
Looking at some of the reviews on here it looks like the classic cuban room lottery applies here as much as anywhere else. Maybe we got lucky, we were in the block with the numbers in the 300's.

Stayed: August 2013, travelled as a couple

I was in Cuba for a school learning service trip. This was the second hotel which we stayed at and I would have loved if we could have stayed there the whole trip. It was honestly a hidden gem. I thought the layout of little huts was really adorable and our room overlooked the ocean. It was a really neat spot because it is also where the ocean meets a river. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and not stuffy at all. The food was great! It was a buffet and was a real treat from the hotel we had been at previous. There was a lot of selection and variety. In the morning they would even make omelettes to your desire. It's not a resort if that is what you are looking for, but it was definitely a hidden gem for those that like a place a little off the beaten path.

It was a horrible place! The rooms with the smell of musty, rememberig old times: those of workers ' holidays in Poland (Poles know what's going on) even though it was pretty clean, well-kept grounds though without taste, breakfast very average, and here there is no choice but for dinner, you need to be sure to go to the bar instead the hotel's restaurant, the food is amazing and fresh. Good drinks. Zero of the beach, unless someone satisfies the patch under the bridge at the mouth of the River, to the beach you have to go a few miles away.

Room Tip: don't go there

We have stayed here for one night only, as part of the organised trip by thomas cook. We were told usually the tour stops in a Trinidad Hotel, but that one was overbooked so we ended up here.

The place looked ok at the beginning, lucky location.

The room looks smallish, but fine for a night we thought. The first problem for us was the fact, you cannot open the windows at all. I do understand there is an aircon - which you dont really want to switch on as in the night the temperature is just perfect to sleep at opened window. Also the room smells stuffy. cannot ventillate throught...

the bedding was really dodgy... spotty, didnt know why... Now we know. we ended up sleeping in underware because you really didnt want to get into this bedding with your skin only....

We been eaten up by bedbugs overnight. Massive bites, back from the cuban holiday for two weeks and still itching.

The food is very average. They have a good dining room, but they are cooking inside of it at closed windows... so all the oily fumes will get into your clothes... something we really didnt like.


I wil never come here again sor sure. will visit Cuba abd do this trip again, but this motel or what so ever, must be avoided...

i have spoken to a canadian couple we met on this trip -they had the same problem, they were beaten up badly as well...

something really serious to address.

Room Tip: Check the bedding before you sleep!!!

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during the Cuban Discovery Tour which we visited Santi Spiritus, Trinidad, El Nicho Natural Park, Cienfuegos and Santa Clara. It is a very basic hotel, but the beds were clean and the room had air conditioning and the staff were friendly. The food at the hotel was OK but not much imagination or variety. For breakfast we had orange and pineapple then a bread roll with ham and some cold scrambled egg. Dinner was a tomato starter then either pork, chicken or beef with rice, this was the same the next day which was a shame as we were a big party on a coach. But if you are staying here for a couple of nights it is fine, had a great view of the sunrise on the first morning before we departed for the Park.

Room Tip: The room we were in was on the ground floor looking over the bay, there were rooms above us so i wou...
