Iberostar Trinidad is a beautiful hotel situated in the middle of town, opposite the main square. It consists of 40 bedrooms, a very pretty lobby and reputedly the best restaurant in Trinidad. The food is very good and the staff attentive. It is a lovely restaurant and the musicians we were lucky enough to listen to during our two dinners were excellent. Its a much smaller and quieter hotel than we've been used to in Cuba. The breakfast buffet in Trinidad is tranquility personified, plenty of choice, a helpful cook ready to provide almost anything the different visitors from various countries wish to consume. When the pictures finally get posted on here you'll see the beautiful famous pineapple lighting centrepiece in the restaurant. It really was a sight to see.
Our bedroom was lovely, perfect décor, well fitted bathroom and the double glazing at the windows looking out to the main part of town looked good but as the Fiesta got to the square outside our bedroom at 2am the noise was indescribable. It was as if they were partying actually in our room! As you'll hear me complain repeatedly throughout our stay in Cuba, getting wifi is bad. So the best time, Peter found was in the computer lounge at 3 A.M. when everyone else, me included, had pillows over their heads trying to sleep.
So once again good in parts and bad points that really could be rectified to make the place much, much better.

I didn't know much about Trinidad but it was another advice from my friend and locals seemed to back up the idea so I went. I took this time the tourist bus, not cheap but direct. Some German girls had the lonely planet so I borrowed it to read more about this place and the rest of Cuba. Haven't done much of guide travelling but Internet isn't an option in this country and I wanted to confirm the tips I got. Reading about Trinidad, I learnt that ...
... at the kiosk. We have found out that this is typical of a Cuba. Ian has been trying to buy a few small cigars to smoke now (he has bought 3 nice ones in a leather bound container to bring home) but the hotel shop always closes early and so it looks like they will lose our business as we checkout tomorrow at 7:30am for our long drive to Central Cuba. This country has so much potential but often seems to lack the drive, they are very laid ...
