In de wonderschone Viñales Vallei wordt het toerisme bewust op kleine schaal gehouden. Er is slechts een handvol hotels in de valei 'op niveau', waaronder La Ermita. Een geweldige plek om te genieten van het uitzicht over de vallei is het terras van het restaurant.
Over La Ermita
La Ermita is bekend vanwege haar spectaculaire uitzicht over de Viñales vallei. Het dorp Viñales is met de auto of voor wie van een stevige wandeling houdt goed te bereiken. De faciliteiten en kamers van het hotel zijn gerangschikt rondom het hart van het hotel: een zwembad met een poolbar, omgeven door goed onderhouden gazons. De kamers beschikken over schaduwrijke balkons waar u heerlijk kunt bijkomen na een inspannende dag.
- rust en natuur
Insiders tipOok in Viñales kunt u genieten van heerlijke Cubaanse specialiteiten in een Paladar (particulier restaurant). Paladar "El Campesino" is een aanrader met een overdekt terras en heerlijke gegrilde kip!

Reis naar deze regio tijdens uw rondreis Cuba voor de beroemde Cubaanse sigaren. Hier groeien de beste tabaksplanten in een schitterende omgeving. Blikvangers hier zijn de zogenaamde ‘mojotes’, hoekige heuvels met een platte top die recht uit de aarde opgerezen lijken te zijn. Naast de sigaren komen hier ook bekende Cubaanse muzikanten en beeldend kunstenaars vandaan.
"Great Views, OK Value - Lacks Maintenance"
We stayed 3 nights at La Ermita. I was a bit disappointed initially, especially coming from the Saratoga in Havana, but the place slowly grew on me. It felt almost like a movie set from the 70's in some way... The room was small with dated furniture, modern linen and clean. The bar fridge was empty, rusty and didn't work. It had a nice big balcony with great views! The aircon worked well and the TV had a few English Channels - mostly movies and a CNN show on repeat. We had to pay CUC2 per day to use the safe. The bathroom had a shower, which needed a good solid clean into all the corners and a toilet with a broken seat. The amenities were basic and the bottles weren't all labeled so you'd have to guess the contents (I actually gave it all to our taxi driver at the end of our stay). Our towels weren't replaced but the beds were made daily. After our walk through the national park we came back with red dust allover us and even after a shower, it still came off on the towels. We left the towels on the floor the next morning so it could be replaced but they just hung it back up. There are no towels for the pool - take your own. The pool area needs some serious maintenance and the pool was only filled about two thirds - probably due to water restrictions as it was very dry and dusty in Vinales after not having any rain for a very long time. The pool water was murky - not a good look. The only time you could find a shady spot at the pool was early morning as the day visitors filled up the place during the day and just took over. There are no umbrellas or shading for the loungers, only for a few tables and chairs. Drinks at the bar was huge and SUPER cheap! A shot of Vinales rum (very soft and smooth if you don't particularly like rum) was 20 cents and it looked more like a glass of wine! Bargain! The bar was well stocked with ice cold local and imported drinks. The bar staff was friendly but service was slow, especially during the day when the day-trippers are there. I never saw more than 2 staff on duty at the bar even with all the people there. Most other times there were 1 person only and when he is making 6 cocktails for a group of people, you wait.... You can also order snacks at the bar. I've attached the bar menu in my photos. Breakfast was included in our rate but really terrible. They had a bit of a variety but everything looked like it's been reheated 5 times or left out on a platter for days. Really not appetising at all. You can have eggs made to order, which was my go to every morning. No bacon. There was salt and pepper on the table but they were all empty - I tried all the tables no one was sitting at but nothing. So if salt is important to you, keep your salt sachets from your flight or grab a few from a fast food restaurant back home and bring it with. The only good thing about breakfast was the view. If breakfast is optional when you book, don't bother. There is a Wi-Fi signal at the pool only - sort of as it did not always work or was very slow and dropped out constantly.... You need an Etecsa card, Wi-Fi is not included in your stay. They sell the cards at reception for the same price as Etecsa but they're sometimes out of stock. We changed money at reception which involved a lot of paperwork (unlike any of the other places we changed money...) They didn't have small notes at the time. We booked a taxi through reception and we just used the same driver for our entire time in Vinales after that. Very nice guy who does not speak a word of English but with Google translate we managed to arrange our next pickup every time without any issues. The trip into town is CUC5 one way. All up we had a nice comfortable stay. It's very basic and considering the price you can't really expect much more (although from staying at casas in other places, we'd probably have been better off at a casa if it wasn't for the views and the pool). For us it was a nice and unique experience and we really appreciated the pool in the heat we've had during our time in Vinales. Sitting on the balcony at the end of a day and just enjoying the views was another plus.
"Better than expected"
From reading reviews we were very wary of booking this hotel but decided that it was worth trying for the price and the positive things said in reviews. Totally agree that the guy in reception needs some customer service training however, the young chef at breakfast could not have been nicer or more friendly and bar staff were okay too. Breakfast was good although we didnâ€™t eat in the evening so not sure about other food. Cleaning was good and beds comfortable and clean. Definitely worth staying for the peace and quiet (until you hear all the cockerels in the morning) and stunning views. We walked into ViÃ±ales for food and caught taxis back if we couldnâ€™t face the uphill walk which cost about 3 CUC (refused if it was 5 CUC and they usuall dropped the price). The pool was out of order for one of our days so there are obviously ongoing problems but if the pool isnâ€™t a major reason to stay then donâ€™t let this put you off. Agree that the potential for this hotel is great but Cuba is a unique place!
"Wifi- only at the pool"
nice location, on a hill. But- Wifi- only at the pool. The room was clean, fine food. The hotel is quite far from the town. You may need a rented car or a taxi to get to the city of Vinales. Nice view from the hotel
"Very nice place - but needs some maintenance"
I almost gave it 4 stars rating because the potential is there. Nice rooms, pool, very cheap bar, good food and not to forget an exellent breathtaking view. But there is to much lacking. Cleaning could and should be better, especially the pool was not anything I would jump in to. 20 minites walk to town. If I come back I would prefer a casa down town.
"Is the view worth it?"
Unfortunately the only positive thing about this hotel is the view over the national park. I am not sure that the view merits the extremely poor standard of this place. It's a great shame as it could be fantastic but it badly needs some money spent on it and a change of attitude towards guests. Yes, it is a 3 star hotel so we did not expect anything grand but the hotel is extremely tired and dated. The bedroom was dark and grubby, the blankets and pillows had clearly seen better days. We did not use the pool as it didn't look very inviting. Breakfast was extremely limited! Coffee and tea are provided in large urns which are not continually heated so you are treated to lukewarm drinks if you don't get there early. Not what you need first thing in the morning! As mentioned by a number of reviewers, the staff are sullen and unhelpful and the guys in reception were often watching the television. There is not a lot of choice of hotels in the area but there seemed to be a lot of very nice, privately owned casas so I would suggest staying in one of those and going up to the hotel for a drink and a look at the view.
