Second year to this location. Noted upgrades in outdoor lighting, beach, buffet selection, new sinks and toilets (with seats on most). Spent first night in an upper bungalow with no air conditioner remote, but there were blankets. Moved to requested beach front room next day. As clean as age permits, comfortable bed, etc. Would like higher wattage lighting, and a...

Improvements are notable. More lodging, new restaurant. Great place for quiet, uneventful vacation. The food was better than previous visits. The beach was very steep, I have read the sand has been replenished since September 2016. There is transportation provided from airport with all inclusive pkgs. Taxi service is available for those who chose land only. . Great staff.

The room was OK. After being all over Cuba in local hotels and Casa Particulares, I was expecting something a bit better in an "all inclusive." Not really, but not bad. Other than having Bucanero on tap, the drinks were lacklustre. Didn't even have mint available to make Mojitos - the classic drink of Cuba. The Pina Colada was made...

Villa Don Lino, Rafael Freyre, Holguin Province. In short, Villa Don Lino is a 2½-star resort striving to maintain three stars. The staff works daily on trimming hedges, sweeping the beach and touching up paint. Remember it's a 2½-3 star. Expect what it is. It is one of the best deals you will find. Villa Don Lino is an alternative...

Just returned from 2 weeks here. Try to get a pool view room #1 to 12 or an ocean view room. Avoid staying in a bungalow. Resort is clean, simple with good food and great service. Take a horse and buggy ride to Playa Blanca to swim and then go to lunch at the little nearby restaurant for shrimp pizza!...

*Great for a single lady, 15 nights stay. *No children in the resort , unless it's a weekend and local families are buying day passes, since its seems to be affordable for them. *Immediate Beach at the resort is not suitable for swimming, you might get poked by sea urchin even through your water shoes. However , snorkeling is amazing...

I've been here many many times, it's a no frills resort , always met great people, this place is all what you make it. Not for the beach enthusiasts ! They are trying to improve each year! With the right company you can have a blast , not 100's of people like other resorts! The staff are friendly, and our...

The 547 reviews below are mostly filled with opinion good and bad. This review is different. It is mostly fact. Read them all and form your own opinion. In February of 2017, Don Lino was under construction with four new chalets being built. Our tour company, Hola Sun did not inform us and because of the construction our room often...
