I love this place

First of lets be honest and mention the favorable things about this place comparing with the other options that the city may have , we all know that it does need lots of upgrades but let me tell this hotel has been my place of peace and happiness every time in go to Manzanillo , I feel pretty comfy leaving thousands of dollars passport and all my stuff in there with out being worry of someone stilling it , its not far from city as long you make a phone call to any local taxi for $50 pesos or $2 cuc you can be in the central park in 10mins same thing in your way back just cab , horsing style or any taxi around will be happy to drive you back. This is no a hotel for recreation if you looking for something more like any other regular tourist resorts around the island bit it feel pretty good to rent a room where you can have a nice clean place with privacy AC and breakfast and pool , this is way better than any other private rent room around I do own a place in Manzanillo and also have lots of family but I'm always gonna scape to my gacanayabo its pretty handy when u wanna get all your family together and invite em over . this is a great get away for drinking and spending time with pool music . food its alright no the best but pretty good for me and my friends.. I always help the personal in this hotel they get pay very little but they treat you with lot of love ,, saludos para mis amigos del gacanayabo de parte de Chacon bless

By: Barb mattinson, Canada Posted: 2014-02-24

 

I have stayed here 2 times.Both time's were fine.I found the people really cared about you .If you need some washing done all I had to do is put it on the stand and some money on top and it was brought back the next day all cleaned.Very nice people work in the restaurant . I also founf the little store where i could get water and things wonderfull..I love to be able to go back..yes,you had to take a taxi but it was fun to go on a horse one..

 

hotel needs improvements

By: larry, United States Posted: 2013-09-04

 

This hotel is nothing compared to other cuban hotels in Holguin, and even the ones in the Pilon area. That being said, it is the only hotel in Manzanillo. The other option is the the private houses than rent to tourists. I stayed at this hotel once and the noise was too much for me, not to mention that the hotel is far away from the city, so you may need to rent a car.

Cuban hotels or goverment hotels that is, are finding it hard to compete with the private business which offers better services.

 

Bad, really bad

By: hans, Germany Posted: 2012-07-11

 

You must be a lucky guy to have water in the pool. normaly there is no water and the employments are not able to repair it.

The meat in restaurant is really bad. I try 3 pieces. Then i went into the city to eat.

For 4 days the employments are not able to have eggs for breakfast. I was checking out and took an private room in the city. Cheaper, very good breakfast and also no water in the pool.

They have to learn a lot!

 

Service was good enough

By: Ziggy, Canada Posted: 2012-07-02

 

I liked it because it was quite and service at pool bar was great. Breakfast was little but good enough for me. I was helped to make my short stay enjoyable.

Thanks,

 

good hotel but

By: beverly, United States Posted: 2011-07-01

 

a little far from downtown manzanillo, you need a taxi or car to move around. The hotel is ok, but there are some noise going on sometimes (bars by the pool play loud music during the day)

The good thing about this hotel is it has car rental facility on site. That's being said, you better make your reservations from abroad because it is cheaper.

Overall I will stay there again. The hotel has a nice view of the guacanayabo bay and it is very clean.

Welcome to my site dedicated to the Hotel Guacanayabo. I am "poco a poco" researching and updating it with the aim to provide as complete as possible record of the recent and future capabitilies of Guacanayabo Hotel; bearing in mind that the goings-on today may one day be of historical interest.

My site is NOT the official website of the current hotel operator, and is by no means endorsed by them; but I am grateful for their help with the research. I'm only used my own photos taken with my nice camera.

You can make from this site room reservations through the Bizloco eTravel System operated by Cubaism Ltd which has a direct contract with the current hotel operator.

Best wishes for 2017
