Okay room, reasonably clean, quiet.

The second time here in five years and again the banos/spa is closed "for reparations". The bathroom was recently updated. The food is typical for Cuba and reasonably priced. A mostly empty hotel and restaurant, with more staff than guests. The pool looked nice but I didn't use it. Lots of tiny biting insects day and night. Friendly and helpful staff. Don't make a big detour to come here.
Strange Spa in the middle of nowhere

The thermal pool at Elguea is magnificent, but the facilities conditions and location make it an unpopular destination.
It’s thermal water is still definitely worth a visit if you are unconcerned with the condition of the facilities.
Don’t expect hot water in your room... or any water at certain times of the day.
Bring your own fruits and other food during low season, as there isn’t much available onsite.
The staff in the health centre are very professional and talented. The mud treatment is a lot of fun. The massage was very strange.
There is a Doctor, Nurse and Poditrist at the clinic.
The hotel changed administrators a few years ago and the price increase has put the cost beyond the reach of the average Cuban who used to enjoy the facilities during holidays. It’s not up to tourist standards and so it has become a very lonely place.
It’s a shame. There is a lot of potential here. But for now, it is what it is.

This is a 2 star Cuban hotel that knows it is tired. But, at CUC 15 a night including breakfast.... you cannot complain really. Rooms are basic but functional. Not the sort of place you forget. Bates motel comes to mind. Don't book on the internet . . . where you will be persuaded that there are days when the place has no vacancies and rooms start at >CUC40. I doubt there is public transport to or from so own vehicle a must. 7km off the highway.
Basic, but solid

This is one of places in Cuba, having sulfur hot springs. They built a balneological resort there. They offer mud therapy, hot baths, etc. It is helpful for curing many diseases.
The resort is pretty basic. It is one floor row of bungalows, like a motel. As it typical fo Cuba, the interiors are dated, but incredibly clean (I never seen such immaculate, although older rooms in Cuba). And - probably due to hot springs - there was no problems with hot water. It is incredibly cheap (state owned) and food is included.
The stuff is friendly.
The drawbacks. It is in the middle of nowhere, and there is nothing to do. It is 8 kilometers ride to the nearest village (Corralillo) or the ocean (but they have a pool, fitness (yes!) and probably spa). The menu is pretty much set every day, you can order from 2-3 positions, and it is not vegetarian friendly (but I liked their food, they cook well).
So if you have health problems to be treated, come there. It is still Cuba, you could get to the beach, and get the treatment for cheap.
Very Surreal Experience!

We booked this hotel ahead of time just for a night thinking we could extend our stay if we enjoyed ourselves.
The hotel: This was the strangest hotel I have ever gone to! It was fully staffed as if they were expecting customers but there was only us and two other elderly couples. It seems that the hotel in it's day would have been grand but now it is old. The lobby is pretty. the bar is nicely set up and the rooms are nice standard hotel rooms but the amenities are old, outdated and/or not working. Beds are hard as are all beds in Cuba. Surprisingly the linens, towels etcs smelled fresh and clean. Our issue was the bathrooms. The shower in our first room had hot water but no pressure, the second room had pressure but freezing water. The toilet never stopped running in the second room. We couldn't be bothered to complain again as we decided not to stay a second night. There is NOTHING to do at the hotel but maybe read a book or watch tv (limited channels) which would be great if you are looking to slow time down. The pool is lovely and the grounds around it are nicely sculpted. When we went it was much too cold to swim or even lay out in the sun but I imagine on a warm day it would have been just lovely and very relaxing. The staff was wonderful and very eager to serve/help.
We ended up leaving less than 24 hours after we had arrived even though we had put 3 days aside to be there. It was an interesting experience and well worth the spa treatments however I wouldn't really recommend this hotel. There is nowhere to go nearby, no other places to eat and it simply is not ready for tourists. A great travel experience though as I had never seen/experienced anything like it! Another reviewer described it as out of a Stephen King movie and it was exactly that. Very strange, eerie and oddly unique.
