You drive from Havana along the main highway avoiding the ox carts then you drive through Guanahacabibes national park (stopping to show your passport). After miles of tropical forest passing iguanas, tropical birds and wild pigs, along with glimpses of white sandy beaches, palm trees and rolling ocean you reach this spot. The cabins are fabulous and the best accommodation (beautiful air-conditioned wooden cabins) we found in Cuba - definitely 5 star apart from the occasional loss of water pressure. The beaches are white and unspoiled and almost deserted, there is a coral reef and tropical fish a hundred meters or so out - easy snorkelling. The only down side is the food which is average (not bad, just average) - otherwise it would truly be five star. The cocktails are good though.

Room Tip: Ask for a beach view.

It's 6 hours away from Havana to the west but it's worth every minute of it: Peninsula de Guanacahabibes is a UNESCO biosphere reserve and its semi-desert flora and corresponding fauna are unique in many ways. Villa Cabo San Antonio is located right by the lighthouse that guides vessels around the westernmost tip of the island. the beach stretch is so enticing and combines with some of the most spectacular sunset scenarios you'll ever experience! your drive into the peninsula may be interrupted by some large iguanas sunbathing right in the middle of the road...

After a long drive from Pinar Del Rio in a classic taxi, my girlfriend and I arrived to discover a deserted reception desk. After an hour the receptionist arrived with no apology and a very cold welcome.

One of the primary reasons we visited this resort was to explore the nature trails and partake in a some of wildlife spotting as the area is famous for it's Iguanas and giant crabs. However we were shocked to discover that the hotel had no transportation to facilitate any excursions into the nature reserve. The receptionist refused to help and did not lift a finger to help organize an excursion. There were a group of 6 - 8 modern mopeds sitting in a garage opposite the hotel which were apparently "all broken" and could not be rented/used by the guests to tour the area.

The Waitress in the restaurant was extremely grumpy and did not want to bothered with guests requesting food or drink. The food was poor quality and quite expensive.

The beach is saturated in seaweed and requires a good clean.

The Chalets were comfortable and clean however the bath tap was not functional. No wifi available or minibar.

This totally private part of Cuba is AMAZING!! Even Cuban people cannot get in to see as the road is blocked!! The views, and privacy and road in and out are something else. Paradise at its finest. Would love to go back some day.

Room Tip: Restaurant is on site, not part of hotel.

It's interesting driving in Cuba and a drive of this distance will probably take longer than you think due to road quality, lack of signposting and lack of rational linking up of major roads. That aside, it was an amazing drive through authentic Cuba finishing with a 70km drive on through the nature reserve at Cabo St Antonio, during which drive we saw wild pigs, iguanas and had to dodge numerous large crabs as they waved us through from the middle of the road! The hotel has a suitably ecological feel and despite us being the only guests (out of season) the whole menu was available as well as drinks - so long as you didn't want ice. The staff were fantastically friendly and amenable and the locals from the lighthouse community a little way back down thread came in each evening to top uo their rum and beer supplies and were great entertainment, even putting on a private magic show for us - I think they may have been keen for a little social variety in such a peaceful backwater.
We walked throughout the forest to the only other hotel/marina in the area, seeing exotic birds, butterflies and other interesting things along the way. The marina bar was open, despite there being no guests in the hotel and no-one around for miles. They even had ice and made great cocktails.
You need mozzi repellent to even step outside the door (and that is from someone who rarely gets bitten) but the forest and beach are great to explore. So glad we made the effort, it felt like a worthy achievement to have made it to what seemed like the end of the earth!
