Stunning location & rooms
Avaliou em 6 de Janeiro de 2019
Surrounded by wonderful gardens with free range turkeys (and Gecko), the location is great.
Our room/cabin was huge and had everything we needed - better and certainly bigger than most hotels we've stayed in worldwide.
Breakfast was good and the evening meal was superb - who knew that antelope tasted so good?
The safari was a great experience (though a strange lack of antelope!!) - we were in a jeep and got to see a great variety of the imported African wildlife - the Ostrich being the highlight by far.
The Villa has a lovely pool if you don't want to travel to the beach, and a well stocked bar and shop.
Cayo Saetia is a great place to stop for a day or two as part of a Cuba trip and I would highly recommend staying at the Villa.
Bring a print-out

The hotel had no idea about the internet receiot we produced for them. We almost didn’t get by the guard at the bridge. Bring a proper print-out of your voucher. This is something they will understand. We may have been swindled by a fake internet page, purporting to be representing Gala hotels. The place is run by Gaviota. At any rate, they gave us a big room. There is a small swimming pool there and a pool table where you can play pool with the workers who are building more cabins. There is little else. There is internet there but they don’t sell ETECSA—cards. Bring some. Food: we were there in the mango season. You can eat them from the trees. The hotel doesn’t have much to offer but you can eat antilope. Fine local beach. Superb main beach. And you get to be there after the catamaran people have left. Loads of fish.
Stay away - if you do not want just a great fasade

The sorroundigs are fantastic, the rooms are very good, but somehow you do not feel welcomed. Instead opt for a trip by catamaran to the wonderful beach from Guaradalvaca. Will give you more value for the money. Because the beach 6 kilometres south of Villa Cayo Saetia has to be one of the most wonderful on earth. There is a great beach restaurant and the possibilities for horse riding and a safari. But overall, the beach is fab.
I have been to Cuba 4 times in 3 years and the road to get there is horrific.

Cayo Saetia is a remarkable place, by most any standards. Where else in the Americas could you see water buffalo, camels, ostrich and antelope on a short jeep safari from your lodging? The jeep safari is $9 CUC per person for an hour; well worth it. We took a tour at 10:00 and the only animals we didn't see were zebras; possibly it was the wrong time of day for them.
The 12 rooms are all in single bungalows (with 2 more being built) and are quite large. There are decks with chairs for sitting out front and back, depending on your sun or shade preference. Turkeys, peacocks and horses will wander around the grounds and maybe come and check you out. But you don't come to Cayo Saetia for the hotel - you come for the wildlife and the beach. There is a nice small private beach 5 minutes walk from the hotel and the larger main beach with restaurant/bar is a short drive farther up the coast. This can get a bit crowded when the catamaran day trippers arrive, but once they leave again it's wonderful.
The restaurant at the Villa has an extensive menu for so small a place, including antelope, which of course I had to try. It was tasty - a bit like a cross between beef and lamb. However, it took over 90 minutes to arrive! The staff seemed to specialise in looking busy but accomplishing little. Next night we ordered chicken :-).
The guide books all warn you that the road to Cayo Saetia is terrible, but we had no trouble in our small rental car and certainly found lots of other roads in Cuba that were in worse shape. It was well signposted and there is a guardhouse where they check your passport at the little causeway as soon as you get on the island.
Must stay here for min. 2 nights, super stay!

We stayed here 2 nights. First, the food in the restaurant was great, fresh antelope, fish, chicken, plus fruits and veggies for dinner. Meals come family style so you can help yourself and taste every thing.
The cottages are the best place to stay. There is even a cottage with a small kitchen. I stayed in a cute cottage with great AC, a living room, bathroom with all amenities and large bedroom.
I would like to commend the general manager, Alberto Ricardo Gonzalez, for the impeccable hotel, restaurant and environment. Animals everywhere, right outside your window you wake to wild horses, iguanas, parrots and more.
You can also scuba dive nearby with notice.
