Islazur Hotel Mirador San Diego de los Banos Reviews
Hotel Islazur Mirador San Diego de los Banos, Pinar del Rio, Cuba Jul 19, 2008
Hotel Islazul Mirador (AKA Hotel Islazul San Diego de los Banos) is located in the province of Pinar del Rio about 133km (82 miles) southwest of Havana. The hotel is a few miles from the entrance to La Guira National Park. This is an old traditional building situated on the edge of town, with a good restaurant & swimming pool.
And don't forget, this is Cuba's best tobacco growing region.
Among the Cuban figures who visited Hotel Islazul Mirador were Cirilo Villaverde, author of one of the most outstanding novels in national literature - "Cecilia Valdes", and Carlos Manuel de Cespedes, who was elected president of the Republic in Arms during the 10-year war for independence that began in 1868.
This little hotel is a surprisingly neat and well-run option in this neck of the woods. The rooms are all set in a two-story building above and behind the pool and reception. All of the rooms are clean and comfortable, with good light and well-kept rattan furnishings, though the bathrooms are a tad small and the beds a bit soft. There are well-tended gardens and grounds and a midsize pool. The main restaurant is actually pretty good for a Cuban chain hotel in the middle of nowhere. El Mirador does a mixed business of tourists and Cubans, and the pool and poolside bar are both usually lively. Here you can enjoy your self by the pool with two bars and a poolside grill.
I recommend this hotel with bed and breakfast, very nice breakfast in a nice breakfast room.
And the best of all from my point of view; Here is it possible to have a relaxing full body massage. After biking 56 km in 32 Celsius I could feel that my legs had been working. I loved the treatment, the therapist was very nice and (blush) a beautiful young Cuban.
