Located on a hillside above the village of Las Terrazas, La Moka is set in acres of forest in the Sierra del Rosario Nature Reserve.

The unusual Hotel Moka Las Terrazas overlooks a lake in acres of restored forest. It has a coloured tiled roof and a multi-tiered lobby built around a large lime tree which climbs through two floors and up through the roof via a skylight.

Tropical light filters throughout the hotel, and the place is swamped with larger than life flowers. The en suite rooms are decorated in colonial style and arranged over two blocks built along the ridge of the hillside. Rooms are accessed by a walkway, and have a secluded balcony that looks out over the forest and valley below.

The large swimming pool, tennis courts, café and restaurant are reached by a path which winds through the verdant landscaped gardens. Activities include hiking, bird watching, bathing in natural pools 2km away, and a canopy tour whizzing through the jungle foliage by zipline. There is no internet access.

What our clients say

  • "Beautiful rural location. Staff very helpful. They again allowed me an early check in. Pool and rooms a little shabby. Loved watching the humming birds and wood pecker from my balcony."

    JR, Cambridge
  • We stayed at La Moka Ecolodge community rooms in a casa particolare with Barbarita and Cirille. They were fantastic hosts, bathroom the best we had in our whole trip and breakfast was excellent. Very friendly and welcoming.

    RP, London
  • "This was the best way to finish our trip. The pool was lovely, food the best we'd had in a hotel and it was cool and relaxing with lovely rooms."

    ZEW, London
  • Very comfortable room-I would not necessarily choose this stay again but very relaxing.

    IC, Guernsey
  • "The two walks with local guides in Vinales, and from Moka Hotel were highlights. There was the opportunity to talk to local people, learn about the countryside, natural history and local ways of life. We loved swimming in the sea at Las Brisas, beautifully clear, and the beach clean and attractive with trees."

    RO, Shrewsbury
  • Very pleasant room and bathroom with lovely view. Food in restaurant was not good!  Breakfast was however good. Pleasant place to stay and great place to start a trip to Cuba
