Fodor's Expert Review Club Amigo Ancón

Playa Ancón, Trinidad, Sancti Spíritus, Cuba

This massive beachfront complex has the appearance of two hotels, and you want to choose the right section. Rooms in the main building are unattractive little boxes, the best of which have tiny balconies overlooking the sea. Those in the Módulo Nuevo—the newer, two-story buildings next door—are spacious, tastefully furnished, and have large balconies. All rooms cost the same, so request one (with an ocean view) in the Módulo Nuevo. The beach is a long, narrow strip of white sand shaded by thatched parasols in a stunning location on the tip of the peninsula. The restaurants are on the ground floor of the main building, next to which are a large pool, tennis courts, and other facilities.


  • the setting here at the end of the peninsula is gorgeous
  • rooms in Módulo Nuevo are modern and spacious
  • large pool and tennis courts


  • about half the rooms here are not so gorgeous, so pick carefully
  • this is not a place to come for peace and quiet
