    El Candil is a fantastic hotel that gives you everything you need for your first or future experiences in Cuba. This was our first time to visit Cuba and the time we booked to the time we left the hotel to go home the hotel staff made us feel like family. Yanetxy and her staff enabled us to be picked up smoothly from the airport, arranged dinner at the best restaurants each night in Cuba, and let us be able to attend traditional ceremonies like the cannon shot head throughout Havana which was amazing. The breakfast here is great and if you have not booked any tours in Cuba yet, they do offer tour services. The room itself is well furnished and decorated, we rested so well here each night as it is located in a quiet neighborhood. The terrace gives a fantastic aerial view while you can relax in their jacuzzi pool or at the bar. I will definitely book here to stay again when I visit Cuba in the future.

    Guard who greeted me and guard who was working the other shift both treated me as I was disturbing their “peace” and making passive-aggressive remarks. I felt like I was being treated as a second-class human by guards.

    The location is perfect. Close to everything in a quite neighborhood. The place is spotless, and the staff is constantly trying to help you. Breakfast was simple but good. We already said this was the place to stay next time. The bar upstairs is very nice, and great watching Mario dedication to preparing every drink. Negatives: Internet is slow, but it is Cuba. TV didn’t work, but I was more curious about what was on than needing to watch anything.
