Hotel Las Cuevas
Hillside hotel with sweeping views across Trinidad and the surrounding landscape.
Las Cuevas sits on a hilltop, a 15-minute uphill walk from Trinidad town centre. Its 112 rooms are set on the hillside and many have panoramic views from a private balcony or terrace.
There is a large circular pool in the lush grounds, currency exchange, a bar, a basic but plentiful buffet restaurant, and a popular disco located in a cave! As with many hotels in Cuba, guests should have modest expectations of general standards and levels of service. There is no internet access.
Several excursions are available from the hotel, including visits to the Valle de los Ingenios and Topes de Collantes, as well as horse-riding and city tours.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Spending time with the guides gave us an insight into other aspects of life in Cuba.SW, Woking
Most memorable experience: "Sunday morning Masses in Cathedral in Havana and Iglesia Parroquial in Trinidad. Going on the ferry from Havana to Casablanca and walking round the area of the Cabana fort."PC, Wallington
Best Bit?: Just the huge contrasts in the country.LW
We found Cuba utterly seductive. It is rare to find anywhere still as distinctive. But it is a country for travellers; to go just to the beach is a waste. But if you find beauty in dilapidation and warm to extrovert people; if you have a grain of curiosity in your soul and a twitch of rhythm in your toes, this is a wonderful holiday.PH, Pimlico
We really enjoyed the historical part of our trip ie the walking tour in Havana and our excursions that we arranged from Trinidad. The luxury and relaxation in the all inclusive resort were also good.KM, Sutton
Food is, of course, difficult in Cuba and we had low expectations.JG, Isle of Colonsay
Really enjoyed all of it, especially Havana and Trinidad. Loved the music, the atmosphere and the people. Very good walks.GG, Diss
All of it was great. It was amazing to visit cities, mountainous areas and the beach. The Rolling Stones weren't bad either!!LW, Tonbridge
Highlight?: Time in Trinidad: - enjoyed the town and also did a tour to the mountains to see coffee plants, drink good coffee and see waterfalls and a lovely pool for a refreshing swim.FW, Cardiff
We got engaged at La Guarida in Havana on the second night, so the whole trip is going to be a memorable one for a very long time!TO, London
Havana..colourful and crumbling...a prince inside paupers clothes, colonial architecture Trinidad..marvellous and whilst it is built on tourism, within 2 blocks of the historic centre you are in another world. Music, music, music..the talent is extraordinary. Food getting better all the time.DS, Cambridge

Most Memorable Moment: Seeing so much of Havana and the amazing countryside around Vinales.GF, London
Although I loved the history, architecture, parks, animals wandering about and music everywhere etc, I'm afraid I fell hopelessly in love with the people most of all. I felt more at home here than anywhere else I can think of.PP, Sawbridgeworth
Most memorable experience: “the vibe and architecture of Havana; driving on the roads of Cuba - empty motorways, gigantic potholes, no signs, picking up random people who flagged us down; cigar rolling and smoking on a tobacco farm in Vinales; daily daiquiris and mojitos, especially those in Hotel Nacional garden; gorgeous peaceful countryside; noisy people and music everywhere; but also extreme poverty and areas that had barely moved from early 20th century; every Cuban we spoke with said how hard living was and that no one could survive on one job. We had such an interesting and wonderful time and will definitely return.”SB, Lewisham
Most Memorable Moment?: Horse riding to the waterfall in TrinidadCJC,
There is no one experience that I would single out. What was memorable were the people, their friendliness and helpfulness, and the real feeling of safety everywhere we went - even when the street lighting suddenly failed in the back streets of Trinidad.DM, Nottingham
Every part of the trip on Cuba. It is an amazing destination. If we had to pick out one part it would be the amazing unspoint scenery.ES, Brackley
