The hotel is okay, but overpriced and has not really 4Star. It's location is good but it is very old and needs refurbishment. The breakfast is okay but do not dine here. The food isn't good.

Despite the propaganda spread out all over the country (favouring all the work done by Fidel Castro and claiming back their country from the Americans in 1959), there ...
... the Guanabacoa Museum to learn about the religion of Santeria, a melding of Catholicism and native African beliefs developed by slaves to hide their true religion from slave owners.
