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.

Beautiful Location, Friendly Staff

Let's start off with the location. The ocean is incredible, and there is a huge coral reef right at the resort for snorkeling. We stayed for a week over the holidays (during New Year's), and the weather was just perfect.The staff were really friendly (especially at the buffet and the a la cartes).. They made you feel like you were at home. Overall, the trip was a great experience. The only thing that could be improved are the quality of the rooms and the food. The resort is a great deal.

Ok resort!

Club amino overall is an alright resort, beach is so beautiful, the view from my room was pretty amazing to wake up to every morning, rooms were kept clean and my housekeeper for the duration of my stay was the only staff member that was actually polite and very nice to talk too, she always put the cutest decorations on the beds.The only problems with the resort is that the food was the exact same for the whole 7 nights I stayed there and wasn't very good. The burgers at the snack bar were never fully cooked and I got very sick one night. Staff and security had no control or care for the locals that wandered into and around the hotel harassing tourists for money or clothes.Probably wouldn't stay again.

wonderful people and very affordable

I love Cuba and the people there. This was my 3rd time at Club Amigo in Guardalavaca. They had some new shows this year the black light show was pretty cool and the male dancing group from Houlgine city was good. It rained every day of this trip however we still had a great time and loved meeting more of the local people in the market that is next door. The sunwing flight was awful we were delayed sitting in the plain for over 2 hrs because the bag people forgot to put our bags on the plain (they blamed it on the weather but we could see out the windows and see the bags were just being put on the plane.) Then while on the plane there was no meals provided unless you paid for them with a credit card. Our travel rep from valente did not inform us of this change the head phones on this plane to Cuba did not work. not to mention the really rude comment from the staff of they are not there to help you with filling out the visa paper to get into Cuba and don't make a mistake because it will cost you $20 to get a new one. We found out the hard way that there i a $3.00 duty on all paintings going out of the country you are supose to declare them at the airport and pay the duty however you can pack them in your suitcase where they may or may not find them as we found out when they called us to the front to open our suit case and pay duty on them before leaving. If you are buying cigars you will want to buy them at a government stores in the market (cheapest) or the store on resort not in the airport. All in all we had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back. if I had to say anything negative about this resort it would be that the beds are not the most comfortable.

ON OUR WAY AGAIN! 4th time in 12 months (total times been there...lol we've lost count;))

As a travel agent it is necessary for me to visit n check out different countries, cities, resorts, attractions etc... I never thought I would wish to keep going back to the same resort...however after visiting CA I fell in love w it. The staff immediately go out of their way to make u feel comfortable n happy...not only are the staff great but also we have met some incredible new friends throughout each visit that we look forward to seeing again n again when we visit...Now u will have to bear In mind that they r doing some major renovations n each time I visit the place i can see the transformations:) it's looking amazing and the work they r doing absolutely does not interfere w ur vacation...restaurants still open...pools n pool bar still open...beach still gorgeous...staff still amazing...management very accommodating n wonderful to work w ...So if ur wondering whether to visit please do...u will not regret it... booked for JAN 28 ... can't wait..our home away from home!

Past Fan

We have stayed here many times in the past. The food was never great, but the atmosphere and beaches made up for it. This time was a disaster. Our first room had such a bad bed I swore I could touch the floor when I laid on it. We were moved without any problems to a newly renovated room. We just laughed at the new design. One of the bathroom walls wade made of plexiglass, and so there was absolutely no privacy at all. They have also removed the balconies to expand the room and I missed it. The hotel is looking extremely worn out. They are renovating a little at a time. Unfortunately there must have been a lot of rain previous to our visit because the mosquitos were thick. I understand that they can not control nature, but every day we killed at least a dozen mosquitos in our room. We had brought bug spray with us, but not room spray so they were a constant problem. Front desk staff was hit and miss. Some were very helpful, and others not al all friendly. Our, renovated room did not have a safe, We were told it would be put in "this afternoon" 4 days in a row, until we finally gave up. Staff at the 24 hour bar were wonderful!
