On a hill overlooking the town of Trinidad, the Hotel La Popa finally opened its doors in January 2020 after a lengthy building process.

The hotel takes its name from the historic Iglesia de Popa, considered the oldest church in Cuba and situated right alongside the hotel.

After years in development (during which it was known as Pansea Trinidad), the Hotel La Popa Trinidad provides this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage town with a much needed boost to its still very limited accommodation options.

Stylistically, the Hotel La Popa has been designed to reflect Trinidad’s colonial heritage while evoking the style of a traditional, rural hacienda as found in the nearby Valley of the Sugar Mills.

The property boasts just 52 contemporary, spacious rooms as well as a swimming pool, spa, restaurant and bar.

The town of Trinidad, with its multiple bars, restaurants and live music venues is an easy 10 minute walk from the hotel while the beaches of Playa Ancon are approximately 15 minutes away by car.

With its hillside location, the Hotel La Popa also boasts some of the best views of any hotel in Cuba, directly overlooking the town of Trinidad to the front and with the majestic Escambray Mountains behind.

With so little hotel accommodation in and around Trinidad, rooms at Hotel La Popa will always be in high demand (but especially so over the high season from November through April) and should therefore be booked as far in advance as possible.

With its pool and nearby beaches (which are easy enough to visit for the day), this is one of the best hotels in Cuba in which to combine exploration and relaxation.
