This was my 4th trip to Don Lino, and 23rd trip to Cuba. However, I had not been to this resort in 6 ½ years, so there were a lot of changes – mostly for the better. I stopped going here in 2010 when they were building the first new wooden Chalets, because I liked the small quaintness of the...

When arrived at the hotel we were told there would be a delay on checking in as rooms were not yet ready, but I soon as I said we were there on our honeymoon, we were checked in immediately...

The resort is really old. Every part needs upgrading: furniture, walls, floors, bathrooms, lights. Food is the same everyday. Annoying locals around the resort leave garbage everywhere. The sidewalks are uneven so you have to be careful not to twist your ankle, especially at night because there are no lights. There is never ending construction to build new units. They...

If you like quiet and true isolation from daily grind this is it! Absolutely relaxing atmosphere with no pressures to be no one but yourself i.e. check your pretentiousness at the gate. Spent two weeks without Facebook, Tweets, Mobile phone, Fax, iPad or Tablet. Venir y unirse junto al cielo!

We travel to Cuba once a year, and are thrilled we have discovered Don Lino. Don Lino is off the beaten path, smaller than most, and the staff is better here than the rest. Food was okay, buffet style, with great staff willing to help. A group of fellows played loud traditional music at almost every supper; some relished in...

First off we love this place so my review may be a little one sided. we have traveled all over Cuba and stayed in 5 stars to no stars. What people have to understand is the "star rating" resorts and hotels are given points for things they offer that go towards a star rating such as coffee makers in room,...

The staff try their best !! Stops at that.(Room) Had to change rooms and the new room was still not good. Lights missing in the ''bathroom'' Shower was disgusting. No latch to keep the bathroom door closed. Each morning had a great sewer smell in our room. No screens on the windows. Our toilet worked fine. No soap upon arrival...

We spent 2 weeks at Don Lino earlier this month & we are returning April 4. We were totally comfortable & enjoyed our stay. This resort is a wee jewel - food is basic, accommodations are fine. This will be our 18th trip to Cuba & we return because we love this country!

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...
