    We had been warned to lower our expectations the further we were from Havana, and this hotel was the poster child for that admonition. The rooms were clean, the beds reasonably comfortable, and air conditioning operational, but we rarely had hot water, and some of...More

    I found no problem with the bathroom. It is not a luxury hotel but very clean and nice. All I can say, is when I return to Baracoa, and I will because it is a wonderful place, I will stat at El Castillo if at all possible.
