This hotel was surprisingly pleasant. They had a wonderful bar service with great staff. Additionally, the hotel pool was impressive in addition to a spacious lobby. The rooms were very nice as well. The only complaint I have about this hotel is the breakfast. Sometimes, a line would form and it would take a while to have breakfast. Other than that, everything was good! The view was amazing at this hotel!

This hotel is antiquated. The lobby was fairly nice and open. The front desk staff are nice but you have to push them if you need something-such as a missing item in the room-pillow, towels, etc. We had a missing light in the bathroom which they sent maintenance to our room promptly and he also said we had a non functioning lamp in our room that didn't fit the plug and we never received a replacement. The beds and pillows were very uncomfortable. The sheets smelled awful- like cigarettes. Our sheets were dirty with hair and crumbs on them when we arrived. The table had layers of brown dirt I had to wipe off. The bathroom was better then expected- hot water with good pressure and decent quality towels, but had to use my own because they smelled too.The shower was not cleaned very well. There was a huge pool and lounging area outside which looked inviting and there were people using it, but it closed at 5pm. Breakfast was terrible and could not eat it. Although I was able to exchange money, our friends said the front desk ran out of money. The hotel is a good 15-20 minute drive to the center of Cienfuegos. The water view from the hotel was beautiful-but the hotel itself is far way from everything.

Outdated hotel, with old furniture. Breakfast is very basic and the food average, not very tasty. The airconditioning in the rooms makes so much noice that you cannot sleep normally. However, nice swimming pool. Good for one night, but not for staying longer.

Frankly not sure what else is nearby, but I'd look around and see about alternatives. Food was, at BEST, mediocre. Hotel rooms were old, dingy, and seriously outdated. Everything was outdated. Only plus: their pool was incredible! For real. But I don't think most people got that far; I never saw a single person using it.

If you grew up in a tenement block in the 1970s, you'll already have a good idea of the architectural merits of the Pasacaballo; crumbling concrete walkways and gantries - at least the lifts work and it's clean. It's painted blue on the outside, presumably in an effort to cheer it up. There are some very untidy areas visible from the walkways which lead to the rooms and they don't create a good impression.

The exterior is nicely presented with palm trees and the entrance foyer is spacious and, again clean. The 70s time warp is very evident again; it would have been a fantastic setting for a hospital drama back in the day. Oh, and we even had a power cut too, whilst we were in the queue to check in.

We only stayed one night, whilst we were travelling to Trinidad and it was a shame that the weather was a bit overcast; everywhere looks nicer in the sunshine. On the day, the pool area seemed a bit dreary looking and there weren't too many people around. But it's a nice looking pool and in the high season, might be quite pleasant.

It's difficult to comment on the location as we were on a tight schedule with little time to explore. We had a couple of hours before dinner and did attempt a little walk - there wasn't any obvious way towards the sea, or anything else for that matter. There was sort of a gravel path opposite the hotel which looked as if it might lead somewhere, but when it just seemed to lead towards people's houses, we turned back without having seen anything in particular.

The room was basic, but adequate. The air conditioning worked, albeit very noisily. The fit and finish in the room was poor. The furniture seemed old and tired (this was the case all round the hotel).

The big surprise was dinner; it was really pretty good. The dining room on the lower floor had pleasant ambience and although there wasn't much choice, what there was, was very well prepared and the service was pleasant and efficient.

After dinner, we spent some time in the bar which was reasonably priced and fairly comfortable.

I can't imagine wanting to spend a week at the Pasacaballo - it might be different in the high season. But for an overnight stop, it was fine.

Room Tip: If possible, the view over the bay is much more appealing.
