Our Opinion
Not the nicest of hotels visually but the Club Amigo Guardalavaca makes up for it in service and value. Nice quiet beach area. The great prices on this resort make it the best choice for a 3 star resort in Holguin.
Please note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba.

Overview
The Club Amigo Guardalavaca is a favourite with Canadians and many keep coming back year after year. The 'Village', just recently built and more spacious, is the newest feature to the resort's property. You're just steps from the beach and from the other two all-inclusive hotels, where you have full access to their bars, restaurants, and activities. Great for families - sort of like three holidays in one!

Location: On Guardalavaca Beach and 60 minutes from the airport.

Family Vacation

This was our 4rd time there, you can not beat the price on this resort, and the staff and beach are AWSOME, the complex is dated the food is...well Cuban food, great breakfast but the lunch and dinner buffet is just average. Rooms are clean, the resort is clean so is the beach, snorkelling right off the beach.

Great beach, nice people, dreadful food in a very dated complex

Our group stayed here two days late November and enjoyed the spectacular beach with plenty of lounges and beautiful sea. Our rooms were terrible to average at best. The food was dreadful, especially the vegetable dishes; last night's supper dishes would all be mixed together in the most unappetizing display the next day. Many things did not look safe to eat. I survived on some very good brown bread, boiled eggs for breakfast (others did enjoy the fresh omelettes), lots of good fresh fruit, and for one lunch, some fresh avocados. One day they roasted a whole pig which was then served for dinner. The centre third of it was still rare, the good outside portions were taken by a few greedy male guests who piled their plates high and left little for others. The whole complex is very dated. Staff do try hard to accommodate.

Great two weeks

We spent October 25 to november 8 at Club Amigo. This was our 4 stay at this resort so we knew what to expect. It was low season so the staff was relaxed and attentive. Food was good, no lines at the buffet with plenty of the usual choices you see in Cuba. The beach was quiet. The two pools open were clean. The Holloween show was fantastic. We were not too active in the activities other than bingo at 4 pm. Tip when they call B 11 don't look around for Beyoncé . All in all great value for the money.

Twice this year,and scheduled for January 2017!!

Our first time in Cuba if I am sure,it was in 1985.I know a lot of resorts over there.Five star and less.We already traveled a lot around the World.But we always return to Cuba.As if to a second home.This last time we went from Set.23 to Oct.1,2016.Which coincides on the date of the hurricane.We had arrived a few days when we started to see on TV what could happen.Not very fearful,"only"attentive.Some tourists panic and led to say things a little outside of the riallity.Sunwing gave all the empty seats on the airplanes back ,for free.If they prefer to come back.Only some did.Everything remained within normal,until we received a letter in the room.For our safety we were going to another resort in Cayo Coco,Memories Flamenco.(Kept in touch with Guardalavaca and learned that the hurricane did not reached over there).Already know Memories in Holguin and Cayo Santa Maria.We stayed several times there.Beautiful resorts.But in the end,we feel much better in the one that we dedicate ourselves to. We love the beach.Surprised that a 5 star resort have a beach nothing to compare with our's in Guardalavaca.After comparing;Yes,more variety in food,larger rooms,but problems happen all over the place.A friend or ours had only hot water in the room and had to come and have showers in ours.Our toilet it was hot water!!very nice when sitting on the John:))The shows at night were just like the ones we saw in the other memories years ago,only other performer's.In Clube Amigo the days we were there,very different from the ones we saw in January this year.I compare the prices and took into consideration the good beach we have.Let alone the family we already have there.(I'm going back for 15 days to Clube Amigo Guardalavaca.Memories Flamenco for 14 days on the same date is $1,160.00 more for the two of us than I paid @ Clube Amigo Guardalavaca.I re-booked for 2017.The only thing I missed from Jan.this year was not having a night clube.Maybe because it was low season.I hope to have again in Jan.2017.

LAst minute deal in February

We're a adult family of 4 and took a chance on the last minute deal. We were quite disappointed that the resort allowed smoking in the main lobby but later found out the entire property allowed smoking in all restaurants! yech and i enjoy my cigars! The "cheap" rooms we received were horrible (broken bed, joing room door broke, but we were there in February so focused on outdoors. We did decide to upgrade to a Villa and were very pleased! Sea view, close to beach,pool.Food was fantastic in Ala Carte but buffet was disappointing..what can you expect for a restaurant trying to feed hundreds of diners at the same time (opened at 630 and always a lineup).Overall, Eddie the bartender, and all of the staff were the diffrence. Always so pleased when we tried spanish. always smiling.For bare bones all inclusive, i felt it was worth the money for a 3-star.
