Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Guantanamo
Reviewed 25 May 2014

While on a tour of Cuba .Nice location by a river with a water mill .When we arrived there were already two other coach parties eating ,but it was pleasant to sit by the river and enjoy the dancing and the band .The restaurant is geared up for a quick turn around and soon we were sitting down to lunch ,service was efficient .

Located approximately 2 miles from Guantanamo city centre, this hotel has the reputation of being the best choice in Guantanamo - if this is the best, I hate to dwell upon what the others in this city must be like!

The rooms are situated in semi-detached bungalows, and two storey flatted villas. The flats are reasonably spacious, with a large WC & shower area. All of the taps worked, but the water flow was very slow and intermittent. There were the usual TV and fridge, and the air-con system was very efficient. There are no safes in the rooms, and all valuables must be lodged with the reception desk for safe keeping. The rooms were a bit grubby, and in need of redecoration.

The grounds are spacious , and there is a small swimming which was being well used by the locals.

The staff were rather brusque, verging towards rude. The receptionist was reluctant to accept my pre-paid 'Cubanacan' accommodation voucher, but after a 10 minute delay, she decided to accept it. The following morning, I asked the receptionist to 'phone ahead to book our next hotel, but she was unable to help, claiming that the telephone network wasn't working!

In the morning there was no water in our room. After complaining, the supply was restored, but of the cold variety only! As stated, the air-con was efficient, but VERY noisy, and had to be switched off during the night in order to get some sleep. From 5am there was much external noise, with loud voices and heavy vehicle engines running.

We decided not to take dinner in the restaurant, but to drive into the city in order to find somewhere to dine. This proved to be an excellent decision, as we enjoyed a very good dinner in the 'Restaurante Girasoles' on Calle 15 Norte. However, the breakfast in La Lupe was served nice & hot, and was quite tasty - the best part of our experience at this hotel!

Yes, we enjoyed our visit to Guantanamo, which is not a traditional tourist destination. This allowed us to stroll the city centre streets on a Saturday night with none of the hassle from hustlers & con artists that can be experienced in most of the tourist destinations. And yes, visit Guantanamo, but don't stay overnight if this hotel is the best on offer!

For sure it's the best place to stay in Guantanamo. It's not located in city centre, but there is no problem with transport. Rooms are clean, well-equipped and spacious. Double room costs 30CUC. There is swimming pool and restaurant too.
