Los Jasmines: Best bit of Cuba!

Los jasmines is stuated a good distance outside Vinales but be put off. We booked ahead from Havana & chose it because it was the only place we could get into. Having arrived exhausted, hot & tired from Havana, I can only descibe this place as heaven on earth! The main hotel is a beautiful old colonial style building. You can either stay in there or in the 'cabanas' outside. The cabana's face the most amazing view I've ever seen looking down into the Vinales valley over the farmers fields, tobacco houses & palm trees. Although a little musty smelling(!) - nothing beats waking up there. The food is nothing to write home about but if you've got this far, you've no doubt become accustomed the the Cuban cuisine! The hotel runs a range of activities, we did the mountain trek which was a brilliant exprience & you learn loads about local life there. The lady who runs the tourist desk there was great & helped us loads with our onward journey.

Pool is a large, no frills but at least clean affair!

HOTEL LOS JASMINES

Hotel Los Jasmines is located in the Valle de Vinales, in the charming town of Vinales. Just an easy fifteen miles from Pinar del Rio, this serene, colonial-style pink mansion, covered with stained glass windows, precious wood and lovely gardens offers some of the most beautiful views of the Vinales Valley (and is the best hotel in the area). Interestingly, Castro suggested the 4-star resort as an ideal honeymoon retreat. Los Jasmines features sixty-two air conditioned rooms (all with balconies to take in the great views of the valley), and an additional sixteen cottages. There is also a fine restaurant, two bars, a disco, a large swimming pool, banquet room, horseback riding tours, medical services, shops, and a money exchange.

NICE SMALL HOTEL WITH VIEW TO THE VALLEY

Hotel La Ermita is ideal for naturists, offering a range of different ecotours of great interest. Among them are the wonders of Vi?ales, a hike of the Sierra del Infierno (Hell Mountains) to see the local flora and fauna, including its birds and a tree dating back to the Jurassic Period (Microsyca calocoma), and visit the Moncada farmers? community; a Visit to Los Acuaticos, a community of the mountains and the Secrets of the Underground World, a speleological tour of the Cavern of Santo Tomas. These tours are excellent for trekkers and hikers, for horseback riding and visiting farmers? communities to become familiar with their customs and way of life.

Villa Mercy: Vinales's best Guesthouse

We stayed at Villa Mercy at N. 129 Calle Rafael Trejo (the one going parallel to the main street on the right). Mercy is part of a family who in total have 8 houses in Vinales (cousins, aunts, etc.) so you won't have any trouble finding a place with these people. There are actually three houses next door to each other with Villa Mercy in the middle (the picture is actually of Villa Loska, we were staying in the two of them). This is very convenient when you travel in family or group. The owners (Osvaldo and Mercy) are incredibly nice people. They helped us tremendously when one of our kids had to go to the local hospital for some stich points... They also cook very well and the rooms are spotless. It's also right in the center of town and it is so nice to just stay in their rocking chair and watch the local activity.

Los Jazmines: Hotel with a stunning view

Los Jazmines is a typical Horizontes hotel. The services and the food are of medium quality, but the location makes up for everything, it's probably one of the best located hotels in the world.

The hotel overlooks the astoundingly beautiful Vinales valley. The main building is noisy and quite old, but there is a new building with better rooms and balconies (also nice looking bungalows). We spent every evening sitting on our balcony drinking Cuba Libre and admiring the ever changing view. Also there is a pool with a great view and a good shop. The food is the usual, nothing special.
The price is not cheap in Vinales, but much lower than in Havana, so I felt it was a good value.

Hotel Rancho San Vicente: Que Cool!

This hotel is very close to La Cuerva del Indio (Indian Cave). It has very nice bungalows set in the rain forest with a pool and buffet breakfast included. Great service, awesome location and excellent condition of rooms.

There were also massages, pool, restaurant, horseback riding and mineral spring baths offered.

Hotel Los Jasmines: Hotel Los Jasmines

Stunning.
Location above the valley and the town provides the most spectacular views. Large swimming pool on the terrace. Main building and new wing painted pink with green shutters (all rooms in the new wing have balcony, superb views and away from the noise of the bar and occasional live music).
Rooms are clean, comfy, simply furnished with marble floors and cane furniture - the perfect size for 2 people. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Taking all that into account plus the price (includes breakfast), one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in.
