We went to Hanabanilla to enjoy the mountains, birdlife, lake and waterfalls, which were all spectacular, but, additionally, we were pleasantly surprised by the Hotel. The room was nice, overlooking the pool and the lake. The food was simple, but plentiful and fresh and tasty. During the evening meal, there was live Cuban music, which we really enjoyed. The pool...

I got very dissappointed because we had our kids with us. I booked with GALA HOTELS...payed almost 200 Euros a night ....only stayed one because of the missing pool...never got any money back...neither hotel nor GALA HOTELS refunded anything.

The only good thing about this place is that the view is nice. But the staff only speaks one language and that is Spanish. The service is very bad, sometimes there isn't even anyone at the front desk in the lobby. The wifi is $2 for an hour and it barely works! I only had breakfast there and it wasn't...

Stopped here for 2 nights. Room was comfortable but we were on the main floor right in front of the pool. The group we travelled with decided it was a good idea to plunk themselves down right outside our room by the pool and have a party both nights (even though we nicely mentioned that they kept us awake the...

This ismthe worse hotel I have ever stayed at. So bad that after arriving at lunch time, sampling the food, and spending a few hours we decided to leave during the early evening and not spend one night in this dilapidated and abandoned hotel. The road access was blocked by lake water and our party had to walk over a...

We were a group of 7 adults, 2 teenagers and one child who stayed at the Hanabanilla resort for 3 nights during the last week of July. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel was very clean as well as our rooms. The view was magnificent from our balconies (all the rooms face the mountains, the lake and the pool)....

I stayed for one night at the Hanabanilla Hotel south of Santa Clara. It is located on large reservoir. The surrounding hills are beautiful with tobacco fields and palm trees. The hotel when built would have been beautiful. It does suffer a little bit with the maintenance. As with many Cuban hotels, you must be patient when checking in as...

It was along drive to get this spot but when we arrived we were blown away by the views. Hotel itself is adequate. Room was small but clean. Very basic bathroom facilities. Walls were quite thin and you could hear what was going on in adjacent rooms. Food nothing to write home about but we didn't starve. If you travel...
