This city hotel, comprising a total of 34 rooms on 2 floors, is set in a converted colonial fort. Set at the top of an elevation, it offers guests panoramic views of the mountains, the city and one of the three bays situated close by. The famous Yunque de Baracoa can be clearly seen from the hotel. Alternative accommodation is additionally available at the Porto Santo complex, which is located next to Baracoa Bay and close to the airport. It is on a small private beach where, legend has it, Christopher Columbus planted the famous Cruz de Parra, considered the oldest religious object conserved from the Spanish presence in America. Facilities available to all guests include an entrance hall with 24-hour reception and a hotel safe. Guests may also take advantage of the on-site caf�, bar, restaurant, and parking.
The secluded and peaceful inn fronts a totally private, pretty cove next to a 2km (1 1/4-mile) -long white-sand beach. The four rooms are quite large and charmingly rustic, like private cabins, with dark wood furniture and red and yellow decor; two have great terraces with rocking chairs overlooking the transparent water. Note that rooms 1 and 2 face the beach. The villa would be a great place for a large family or four couples to rent.
