Our Opinion
Brisas Guradalavaca is a solid 4 star resort by Cuban standards. It is one of the more popular resorts in Holguin because it offers good service and clean rooms. The food isn't the greatest, but that is common in Cuba. The beach its self is nice, but the ocean can sometimes have lots of seaweed.

Situated on Guardalavaca Beach, this attractive hotel is ideal for families, single parents, couples and honeymooners. The children's club features a fun-filled daily activities programs with lunch, snacks and soft drinks, watersports, movie and cartoon programs. The hotel features 24-hour snacks, a unique local historical excursion and inviting accommodations are split between the hotel section and the villa area with spacious bungalow-style units.
Location: Directy on the beach, 45 minutes to downtown Holguin, 1 hr from the airport.

First visit to Cuba only sorry we have left it so long

We went as a family Mum,Dad, Daughter. son in law and two Granddaughters and booked two Villas which were very clean if a little bit dated. All the staff went out of there way to look after us. grounds and gardens were beautifully kept. The food in the main restaurant was good and the a la carte were excellent especially the Sea Food. The Thomas Cook rep (OZ) was one of the best we have ever come across.The complaints in some in some of the reviews against the cost of the Holiday makes you wonder if some people just like complaining

  • Queenbee0812 :

we got married here in November and I must say I was apprehensive as some of the reviews I had read were some what like horror stories! Don't believe everything you read...The hotel was absolutely amazing in the most stunning location, the staff were very helpful and friendly also very attentive nothing was ever too much trouble, the food was hit and miss in the main buffet but we could always find something to eat, breakfast was by far the best always plenty of choice but the on resort restaurants were superb especially the seafood restaurant. Entertainment was good was something on most nights and entertainment team were brill. We had the most amazing time here and will definitely be returning very soon. My kids loved it here they've never had so much freedom as I never let them out my sight but was so safe here. Brilliant

I have been to this hotel several times. The facelift they have given the main lobby and room were well worth it. The lobby is now updated with new furniture and a paint job, plus a new lobby bar. The rooms have all been redone and the washrooms have been renovated completely. The food was amazing here and the seafood restaurant in the villas with the singing waiters is a must! We did not plan on visiting Brisas this trip although went to see friends and I'm glad we did.. Completly satisfied!

nice holliday

we stayed in november and it was just ok we went for the weather as we love it hot at night we stayed last year at cayo coco that was nice but nowhere to walk so thats why we stayed here there is some lovely places to stroll around with shops and bars a short walkthe hotel is a little tired but thats cuba we stayed in the villas facing the villa reception we found it nice and quiet we could sit on the balcony and watch the world go by with a drink the food is a bit of a let down but we always found something to eat and i loved the pancake lady in the mornings we got one of the old cars that stand outside in the mornings to take us to holguin for the day just ask them they are really friendly we paid 70 cup for the day and he just took us to where we wanted to go not the tourist trail to cigar factory etc all in all we had a lovely time staff were very nice and the martini bar was a little gem at night i think in cuba you have to go with the flow it is a poor country so just enjoy the time there it is an experience
