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

  • Most Memorable Moment: Soaking up Havana - it's an endlessly fascinating place. Closely followed by swimming in the El Nicho falls and snorkelling off Jibacoa

    CB, Eastbourne
  • Highlight?: Our stay in Trinidad

    PD, Woking
  • All places were well worth visiting for their particular character etc. Our over-riding memory was of the lovely people we met and the sounds and rhythms of Cuba.

    IB, Chesterfield
  • Las Terrazas - the hotel, zipwire and natural pools. Also meeting locals during the trip, including picking up hitchhikers. The caribbean sea and beach at Playa Ancon were wonderful.

    PR, Brentwood
  • The only additional info might have been that travellers should take a box of tissues - although we always do anyway to wherever. Cuba doesn't do tissues.......

    PR, Edinburgh
  • Highlights: The music/case da la culturas. driving and getting off the beaten track.

Our Expert's Opinion

I had been to Trinidad in 1990 when it was untouched and clearly destined for tourism stardom. Over 20 years later, I was expecting it to be much more spruced up, sanitized, and manicured. Which it wasn't. People in the streets are still friendly, but clearly, the town owes its livelihood to tourism. The great advantage of this hotel is that it's just on the edge of the town of Trinidad and, being on a hillside, it has panoramic views of it.
