Very poor hotel with nice view
After arrival we were informed that there is a problem with water,so we were unable to take a shower after 24 hours journey. The problem was sorted out at 7 a.m. Air condition unit was loud as a tractor. We also had ants and cockroaches in our room and bathroom. Bed linens weren't pretty clean,pillow covers and sheets were old and stinky. The breakfast was included,but was very,very poor. Only the omlet was quite good,the rest was dry crackers with mayonnaise,juice from the box and poor coffee. One positive thing in this hotel was astonishing vista from the window. It overlooked the river valley with dozens of vultures flying above.
sketchy and unclean, but good price
In the US, this would be considered a 1-star hotel at best. So many less-than-OK things about this place: uncomfortable beds, sporadic cleaning (multiple days my sheets and towels weren't changed), intermittent water, green water pool. It IS a handy location if you plan to spend time in Matanzas as well as Veradero (where there are many nicer hotels). And as someone else wrote, when there was water (which there normally was in the morning), the shower pressure was good. But I stayed for 2 full weeks, and could not wait to get out of there!
It is a little run down but if you need it just to sleep and shower it is good for that , Matanzas city and Varadero are close by if you need to or do something over all I will stay there again staff is friendly
I quite enjoyed it, the only slight drawback is that it is ermoved
I quite enjoyed it, the only slight drawback is that it is removed. This is another Islazul chain which i am a bog supporter of. Islazul is sorta like the Holiday Inn Hotel of old (better known in Canada) a low budget family place but pretty good quality and certainly safe and clean. In my experience Islazul are almost all frequnetd by better off Cubans, with the odd sampling of foreigner, I really like them as they are usually about $15 to $20 CUC (at least a few years ago). This hotel has a large clean swimmming pool and overlooks this large beautiful river that is nestled way down in a deep lush canyon/ravine. I believe the river's name is Canimao hence the name of the hotel. And you can walk down the river bank from the hotel to the rivers edge but it is a steep and tiring walk (not far just steep). The hotel has a bar and restaurant and has a really nice layout with largish rooms, and you meet all kinds of great cubans at the pool and bar. The restaurant services the typical Cuban fare, with a hearty breakfast (I think the most important meal of the day in Cuba). So in a nutshell really relaxing, quiet (except maybe in the summer at poolside ) and fun. The down or upside depending on who you are is that you are not in central Matanza (actually on the outskirts) or in Veradero (yeahhhh). So its not like you can step outside an be in downtown Matanza. so you always need a taxi (or if you get to know the staff, and they are very friendly, you can take the workers bus to Matanza at 3 PM and give 1 CUC tip) and taxies haev to be ordered as you are about a half mile off the main highway. However, if you know cuba, all I do is walk teh half mile (a great walk) and just hang out on the shoulder of the highway (or just ask Cuban strangers with cars at a the little cantina) and wave/flag your hand and someone always stops to pick you up eventually to Mantanza (I usually paid 5 CUC). and tehn you just spend your day on the great town of Matanza, with my HQ at bar Vieja in central Matanza and surrounded by great Cubans and architecture. The last point if you like partying and nightclubs right across the street from teh hotel (litteraly 150 feet away) is teh only nearby attraction (and it has nothjing to do with teh hotel) is Club Tropicana, probaly the best club in Matanza filled with beautifual and dancing Cubans. But you better bring out your best Salsa!
Hotel Canimao Matanzas
Poor service. Terrible restaurant! Food is served in a non hygienic way. You cannot sleep due to the airco in the room which is too noisy. Requests put up at the reception desk are not folluwed up correctly and sometimes even forgotten.
