Hotel Hanabanilla

First the good points... This hotel enjoys a superb position on the north flank of Lago Habananilla, a lovely lake framed by the dramatic Sierra Escambray mountains. The hotel is also a good base for hiking or horse-back rides into the mountains, or for fishing. And your fellow guests are sure to be restricted to Cubans, so it's a good chance to mingle with locals. Now the bad points. Let's start with just getting there, which is a harpy. The road to the hotel washed out in 2003 and has not been repaired. Hence, most guests are ferried by rickety and unsafe (read overloaded!) boat, while others walk the trail that weaves around the lake and across the dam (a half-mile walk that has you sloshing through water-logged turf in places).

The modernist Bauhaus design is similar to scores of Soviet-era edifices erected since the Revolution. Alas, the windows in the accommodations offer no views, as they use frosted glass! The 125 bedrooms are air-conditioned and fitted with functional utility furnishings, but also feature satellite TVs, telephones, and bathrooms recently refitted with modern fixtures.

Don't raise your hopes up in the two restaurants, where the range and quality of food leave much to be desired. And you'll either love or hate the disco, which on weekends kicks out noise to wake the dead. The large swimming pool also gets lively with families.
