When we travel, we look for unique experiences. Sara and David offer travellers a beautiful house in Holguin, fifteen minutes from the airport, with a lovely garden, a swimming pool and very comfortable rooms with their own bathrooms. The rooms are separated into apartments and each looks over the garden so there is always a lovely breeze and birds singing. Sara and David are trained biologists, so the garden has a spectacular diversity of plants and fruit trees. Even better, Sara, David and their family are lovely people it is a privilege to spend time with. And they are great cooks. David bakes his own bread and grills meat in their outdoor oven, while Sara makes lovely vegetable dishes, sauces and desserts. I am hoping at some point they will offer some conserving and cooking classes! Their reviews are excellent because they are excellent. Enjoy!

A gem in the heart of Holguin city, Hostal Refugio de Los Reyes, as the name suggests, is fit for royalty, but priced for the modest traveler. The accommodation is simple, but very comfortable and impeccably clean. Rental options are cabin style buildings on the same property as a family of 3 generations. As this is a family property, respectful tourism is essential here. There is a very nice shared pool and outside lounging area. Sara and David are outstanding hosts, who understand hospitality and will cater to your travel needs. Sara is a botanist by profession, and her meticulous work with the plants and trees of the property give the feel that you’re immersed in a microcosm of the Cuban jungle. The food that comes out of Sara and David’s kitchen is among the best prepared in Eastern Cuba, and better than the vast majority of what’s available in hotels and even fancy restaurants. You can’t go wrong requesting the dinner service, and breakfasts are 5-star quality. Book this homestay well in advance, because when the Covid pandemic comes to an end, they’re sure to be full every night.

This is a great accommodation option in Holguin. Sara and David are excellent hosts, hospitable and happy to share their local knowledge. Accommodation is of a excellent standard, with the garden a very relaxing place to unwind post a day of exploring Holguin, and its surrounds. Breakfast was tasty, ample, and tweaked to your specific request. The home is a short walk from the center of Holguin, and within walking distance of most places you'd like to visit. We'd totally recommend Hostal Refugio de Reyes as your accommodation option in Holguin Cuba

I have visited Cuba countless times and I have always stayed in casa particulares and it is a fact that Hostal Refugio de Reyes is in a class of its own. The house looks typical from the street but once you enter the property the city is magically gone and you are in a tranquil botanical garden with seating areas, a pool, and dining areas. We rented “apartment 1” and I was amazed to find glazed windows, hot water, a large TV, and a modern AC unit that was totally silent. I have never seen such modern conveniences in any other casa in Cuba. Our apartment was cleaned every day until it was spotless. The hosts, David and Sara, are gracious people who are eager to help make your stay comfortable in any way that they can. They also are artists in the kitchen. Do not think about missing breakfast, it is huge and delicious. The first course is a fruit salad that Sara and David have carved to produce a sculpture that you almost feel guilty about eating because it should be put on display for all to see. The rest of the meals were equally impressive. If you want to live in total comfort, enjoy spectacular breakfasts and be made to feel totally at home then look no further than Hostal Refugio de Reyes

We spent our first 2 nights in Cuba at this place and could not have been happier. Sarah and David are warm and welcoming and were always so nice about recommending restaurants, arranging taxis, etc. Sarah is a botanist and has filled every corner of their gorgeous yard with plants, creating a lush tropical garden right in the centre of Holguin. We had the rooftop suite and it was sparkling clean and tastefully decorated and very private feeling. My 9 year old son loved their pool and swam at every opportunity - there is a huge mango tree beside it that was full of mangos hanging over the pool when we were there. Their breakfasts are a total experience - so much love and creativity went into the food and the garden setting made it extra special. Easy walk to the main pedestrian area. Do not hesitate to book this and also I would email them even if trip advisor is saying they are full. That's what happened when I looked and I almost didn't bother contacting them directly - I am so happy I did!!
