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.

Was meant to head down to the beach but even though I was awake I pulled out. Probably as good a place as any to laze around but I decided I preferred to sleep in the aircon rather than the hot sand. Was just feeling lazy really. From the others said it was lovely.Had a couple of beers on the stairs in the evening. Reading The Sun Also Rises at the moment which is a nice fit though wish I had The Old Man ...

... since you lost the blanket…..
Showering in Cuba:
So we already knew about the electric instant hot water heater in the shower…. But here they have the electric plug right in the showers…. And the best in this one here is: you turn on the water and then you also have to turn on the fuse right near the shower curtain, and it turns off after a ...
... patio with a cute little table and chairs. Very romantic! We love it and are staying here for 4 nights. Once settled into our room we decided to check out the main plaza area. This place is beautiful, apart from the homeless skinny dogs that wonder the streets in search of food. One dog in particular brought me to tears. It was literally skin and bones. It looked diseased as all its hair was pretty much gone and its skin was ...
