We just came back from Don Lino's January 23rd , 2017 This Hotel is very basic and like the title says not for everybody , but most people that we met have been there as many as 20 times and they love it, there are even Canadians buying houses under cuban people names (foreigners can not buy properties in Cuba)around...

Having read the reviews before choosing Don Lino, it met and exceeded my expectations for a quiet, uncrowded, clean and friendly resort where I got to know my fellow travelers and the hotel staff. The food was local, which meant not a lot of variety but fresh, healthy and well-prepared. Papaya was in season and it was juicy and delicious!...

I had stayed here once for 1 week in October of 2012. The resort is a very small and intimate resort. There is not much to do on the resort but all rooms are like little bungalows and if you get one at the front, you have a decent view of the ocean. This resort is more for people who...

Lovely beach for snorkelling or privacy. Low key and natural. Lots of animals around, almost like a farm - horses, pigs, cows etc. Unfortunately, due to the remoteness, the facilities are lacking. Things break or wear out and can't easily be replaced. We switched rooms several times due to important things being broken - e.g. flooding, no toilet seat, etc....

travelled Dec 2 to Dec 9/16 Just when I thought it couldn't get better... the food has improved again. With a new supplier there is daily fresh vegetables--lettuce!!. The bands have improved as well with new additions to each group. The new roof was completed on the beach bar while I was there and soon to be opened. As usually...

This was our 4th time to Don Lino and it seemed like we never left. There are always maintenance problems in Cuba but they try their very best to stay on top of problems and help the best they can. The food was very good and plentiful, even though the selection was limited. Repeat guests enjoy a great Lobster dinner....

We booked for seven nights on a last-minute type of purchase. The star rating was not high but the reviews were good. I'm happy to report that the reviews were accurate. We had a room on the second floor. For most of the day we could sit on the balcony in great comfort, both cooled and warmed by the hot...

I have just returned from my third enjoyable stay at Don Lino. I flew from Toronto November 23 on Sunwing November 23 returning December 7. My flight left pretty much on time, 6:30 a.m. One big reason I chose that early morning flight Sunwing offered that was because it arrives early in Cuba just before 10 so I would have...
