Hotel Villa Cabo San Antonio
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Pinar del Rio
Reviewed 4 December 2016 via mobile

Our room was very dirty. The room was not dusted, with cigar ash, etc. on the furniture, the floors were terribly dirty as well. In all my years of housekeeping I have never seen such a dirty room. The mirrors and tv were cleaned with a greasy cloth. Our king size bed had a broken mattress, forcing us to sleep on only 1/4th of the bed. There were no bike rentals like we were promised. I incurred over 100 mosquito bites in less than 18 hours and the hotel had no mosquito spray to alleviate my discomfort. My body was in complete discomfort and pain. The beach was beautiful but due to the sand flies we could not spend more than a minuet basking in the sun without being bit. The restaurant food was a disaster. We were served a can of cold canned green beans as an appetizer, and it went terribly down from there. We were supposed to spend 4 nights, but left within 18 hours. Would not recommend, and would never, in a million years return. There are no walking trails or nature tours as we hopped.

Stayed: December 2016, travelled as a couple

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.
