“Gibara's new Magnifico Hotel option”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

Once outside of the Holguin airport, it was off to Gibara, a place that I had not been to in about 2 years. I heard that they had a new hotel there. Entering the bay area of Gibara just before the town, the refreshing breeze off the water hits you. There always seemed to be a breeze wherever we were in Gibara and at any time of the day.

We pulled up to the hotel just off the main road in town. The hotel looked quite handsome from the outside and once in the lobby, it did not disappoint either. We registered and were shown up to our room on the second floor. The room was spacious enough and looking in brand new shape. Everything worked nicely. The fridge, the TV, the AC, the hot water, and yes even the hairdryer!

After a walk around the neighborhood, we had supper at the hotel restaurant and it was just like another guest staying there said it would be. The meal was excellent and the restaurant room was bonita. There was an included breakfast also, until 10 am or so.

That evening there were a couple of girls offering a small piano/guitar show for the patrons. There is a small lobby bar that seats about 6 and also comfortable lobby chairs to relax in while having a refresco.

The next day a maid was gracious enough to show us around to some other rooms on the third floor that had 12 ft. ceilings. Not all the rooms were finished and ready for guests apparently. The suite room we were shown was quite appealing. There is a rooftop terrace that could seat quite a few people and had good view of around the town but no bar was set up there as of yet. It will be great spot for a drink when they are up and running.

I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this new and only hotel in Gibara. The staff were great, the room was quite adequate and the restaurant food was delectable. It would be great if it were on the waterfront but you can't have it all, I guess. At 82 CUC per night per couple, it was a great value. A similar styled hotel in Havana would be twice the price, I imagine.

This hotel sticks out of the skyline somewhat wherever you are in Gibara and kind of seems out of place in this town of casas and fisherman but it adds a new significant option to spending the night in Gibara for people who like this sort of boutique hotel, that was at one time somebody's mansion. There are a couple of banks conveniently around within a 1 minute walk and a few shops around to buy drinks if you decide not to use the mini-bar option in the room.

I/we loved it and will definitely stay there again.
