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.

Great job CA

This was my 4th time here in a year. I have noticed so many improvements. It's amazing. First of all, the beach can't be beat. You can take a paddle boat out or swim from the pirate beach to snorkel but if you're like me and need a life jacket you should bring one from home. We asked to borrow but there were none. For food, I really loved it all this time. The breakfast and lunch at El Benny's is great. For dinner we tried out the a la cartes. My favourite was El Fuerte. The mushroom soup was amazing and get the salad with olives too. If you're a returning guest you should ask at the desk about your returning guest dinner as nothing was left under the door this time. The poutine at the rectangular pool was very good. This was my first time to the wine bar. Another must see! In lieu of excursions we hired a friend to take us to the caves on horseback. We also walked past Brisas to the small village and exchanged some gifts for some fresh mangos and shells. The room was clean. We had a problem with our air conditioner but someone came quickly to fix it when we called. That's all my tips for now... Mosquitoes are an issue for me. Someone told me to stop eating bananas. Next time, no Bahama Mommas for me.

Good bang for the buck.

The service at this hotel was excellent. From the receptionist to the gardeners and everyone in between. I booked a standard room, but was able to upgrade very inexpensively.This is a big resort located about an hour from the airport. This hotel have two check-in locations during peak season. There is nothing not to like about this hotel.

Many renovations since October 2016!!

Thirty years of our first time in Cuba!!I was celebrating my birthday ,and since that day.Many,many more times in Cuba.E feel so well with so "little".Or this "Little"should be the one that we should all give value.Our fourth time at this resort,and each time a bigger and closer second family!!Many renovations since October 2016.Fully restored sea front rooms.The pool next to the stage.Not only was renovated,it as a bar.Bread at breakfast was frozen in the past.Now from a local bakery and is always fresh.Sometimes still warm.My routine there is relatively the same every time.Long walk in the morning by the sea.Breakfast with my husband and a good swim in the sea.Ten in the morning exercises.Them at eleven my husband go play beach volleyball,or in the pool.Exchange conversation not only with tourists,but also with Cuban's.We usually have lunch at the bar by the main pool,nearest the beach.Every afternoon you have either horseback riding,bicycle,or horse and carriage to the nearest town.Free tours accompanied by some of the entertainers.Often back to the sea.Sometimes bingo in the afternoon.Which brings us once more to additional laughter.Dance a little and the day goes by.Unwind a bit in the room and get ready for the night.I love great walks on the fringe that is tremendously scenic.I always get one more original photo.Dinner sometimes in one of the restaurants.Other's at the buffet.Unwind again,have a nice coffee and enjoy our pianist or the violinist.Then walk with some new friends to the show.Again with those of the animation.We have known over the years.Dance a little,laugh even more,and time to enjoy the show.Sometimes the night finished there,since we like to get up early.Other days we go to the disco and after to the 24 hours to drink something hot before bedtime.Nothing alcoholic at this time.Is enough to see the very depressing situations that many rather drunk tourists do at this late hour!!I admire the bar staff for how much they have to endure.Then all holidays depend of the environment that is created by the tourists at that time.Please do not came back to criticize that you had a noisy night.The resort is not to blame.Enjoy your vacation in the Sun and warmth of Cuba!!Small details happen everywhere.Be polite and everything is solved.This year we have plans for other trips in Europe and not going back to Cuba.But in 2018 we will return again!!

TIME OF OUR LIVES!

Myself and my friend were looking for a good week getaway for a decent price. After reading many mixed reviews about different places we decided to go to Club Amigo. With open minds, we were set. Upon arrival the staff was super friendly, we stayed in the tropical rooms just off the lobby which was an unreal location with a view of the main pool and the ocean. Now, we were looking for a party... we're in our mid 20s. I wouldn't say this is a party resort, but we ended up having a party at the 24 hour bar till about 4am every night with people of all ages, young and old. We made so many friends with awesome people from all over, and had plentyyyy of vino tinto... what a BLAST. We seriously didn't want to leave Club Amigo, every day and night was so. much. fun. As for the food, I had never been to Cuba before and people warned me about the food in Cuba and how it is bad. However, I thought the food at Club Amigo was actually pretty good. I mean it is cuban food but it tasted great! Fresh omelettes at breakfast, good options for lunch at the snack bar by the pool, and the 24 hour bar makes pizzas during the day that were good. For dinner, the buffet had fresh calamari and pasta and plenty of other options. Also if you go down the beach there is a place called Rico's Pizza- we went there one night and the pizzas were amazing... We never got sick once, and trust me, we should have from the amount of drinking we did. We also met a lot of people that had returned to Club Amigo plenty of times, one guy had been 17 times- a lot of people were returnees. I can see why. As for the beach- i've never seen anything like it. White sand, teal water that fades to navy... unbelievable really. If you have an open mind, Club Amigo is where it's at. It's nothing fancy, but its clean, friendly staff and people, easy going, relaxed, and a beautiful beach. We want to go back the next chance we get!
