Don’t expect much from this place – it’s simple and the dinner and breakfast not really exiting. We stayed one night, as we wanted to go hiking the next day. Our room was ok, but not really clean. The service in the restaurant is very unfriendly.

We stayed one night at the hotel Los Helechos for a Trinidad/Tropes tour from Cayo Santa Maria. It was raining the evening we got there, so was very dreary. We were not, however, expecting a luxury hotel, and so we were quite okay with it. Everything is a bit dated - curtains don't fit, bedding ugly - but it was...

An older hotel that is clean and hospitable. Fun to walk around with binoculars spotting birds. Dinner was serviceable with friendly guests happy to chat. Good self service ice cream. No wifi in the rooms, and wifi in the lobby was spotty.

Hotel "Los Helechos" is located inside the Topes de Collantes National Park in the heart of the Sierra Escambray, 5 km above the city of Trinidad. Topes de Collantes is an area of more than 12,000 acres of forested mountains and river valleys. It's a perfect base for exploring the mountains. Several hiking trails begin within a stone's throw of...

I always try to find something nice to say for starters, but it is a struggle in this case. Best were the trio of musicians who entertained us at dinner, and I was pleased to be able to buy a CD from them. The food was adequate. Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The AC worked when...

We where suprised that hotel was actually good. We where expecting a lot worse. The room was clean, the bed was good and the toilet and the shower worked well and there where also plenty of hot water. What more could you want from a hotel in Cuba? I was a little worried about the mosquitoes because there where no...

Beautiful location, decent food, and good conditions. I was a little scared to get there since the reviews here didn't describe it as great, but I was happy I have a better experience. the only problem I encountered was with the air conditioning, but that's really not that terrible since, because of the altitude of the region, the temperature here...

The accommodations are spacious and comfortable, there is dependable hot water and nice towels. All beds in Cuba are firm with fairly flat pillows. So bring a pillow if you are particular about that. Food is served buffet style, with a cook to order bar for fish, beef or chicken. There is a large indoor heated pool, many hiking paths...

Spent 2 nights at this hotel. We stayed in the bungalows. These rooms are supposedly better than the ones in the main building. The rooms are fully equiped. Airco works well. Bathroom is small but OK. Our room had two double comfortable beds. I guess, for Cuban standards, this hotel is quite nice. No wifi. The buffet restaurant is below...
