La Ermita, Viñales, Cuba
La Ermita is the sister property to Los Jazmines and offers comparable facilities and service. It's 62 rooms are small, a little dark and dated but perfectly comfortable, offer good views and all have a balcony or terrace and en-suite bathrooms.
There is a kidney-shaped pool at the centre of the grounds and a poolside barbeque restaurant bar; the surrounding lawn makes for a wonderful vantage point to enjoy a mojito while watching the sun set behind the stunning Viñales Valley landscape. It does have a main restaurant but on average food reviews are unfortunately pretty poor. The water heating system at La Ermita is solar powered so please be aware that hot water is not always plentiful, especially on cloudy days.
IMPORTANT: We do our very best to ensure you stay in the hotel that is booked for you but the 3 Vinales hotels - Ermita, Rancho San Vicente and Los Jazmines - are now considered to be more of a 'hotel complex' under the same management and occasionally they tend to move clients to one of the other hotels. Our agents will do their utmost to prevent this but it is not always possible to avoid.
