Rooms from £30/day inc Breakfast
Hotel Ermita is one of my favourite haunts when I'm in Viñales. I go there to use the swimming pool, and relax in the gardens. My parents have stayed here, and the service is always good. Enjoy a sun-downer. What a great view of the mountains!
Why we like this hotel:-
It is the closest hotel with a swimming pool to Viñales town - so you don't need a taxi
The garden around the pool area gives some shade, and there are a few umbrellas

Hotel Ermita is one of my favourite hotels in Viñales. My parents always stay here when they come to visit.
Set in a beautiful location, overlooking the Viñales Valley from the Eastern side, Hotel Ermita has a very relaxed feel to it. The staff are lovely, (and Michael from the entertainment team, is a personal friend of ours).
Hotel Ermita is situated a short distance outside Viñales, up a small hill, about 20 minutes walk.
A Taxi to Hotel Ermita from Viñales main Plaza will cost you about 2CUC (£1.32)
There are 62 clean and comfy standard rooms, simply furnished with marble floors and cane furniture.
There's plenty of hot water for a decent shower, good beds and air conditioning.
In our opinion, the best rooms to ask for are the row of rooms to the left of the entrance. They are single story and have patio doors which open onto the garden and pool area, which means that you can chill on your own patio, but still be close to the swimming pool.
Hotel Ermita has kind of a 'lazy-L-shape' pool, which is great for wallowing, (but not so good if you want to swim lengths). It is the closest swimming pool to Viñales town, so an easy walk downhill.
There is a garden with sun-loungers, a few parasols, and one or two palm trees for shade.
If you are not a resident, you may still use the hotel pool for a fee.
The Restaurant & Bar
The view from the restaurant is beautiful, (and as ever - serves the usual Cuban fair). You can get toasted cheese & ham sandwiches at the poolside bar.
Sit by the window in the restaurant at sunset and watch the sun go down with a mojito in hand.
Watch the floor show in the Bar, great dancers.
