Hotel Casa Granda
- What's Included
Our OpinionPlease note that hotel standards in Cuba tend to be lower than in other Sun Destinations. Unless travelers are familiar with the resort or Cuban hotels, we typically recommend that travelers book a minimum 4 star resort when traveling to Cuba.
OverviewHotel Casa Granda is in the heart of Santiago de Cuba, offering a unique view of the beautiful panorama of the Bay of Santiago, the historic city centre and surrounded by mountains. The surrounding area includes historical and cultural landmarks of Santiago such as the Cathedral, the home of Diego Velasquez, now Colonial Museum, the Casa de la Trova, Emilio Bacardi Museum, among other attractions.
We stopped here for a drink and snack in the shade. The temperature that day was a modest 37 Celsius! The restaurant looks out over the park and is a marvelous place for a rest and to people-watch. Service was good. Thoroughly enjoyable.
mostly in Cuba, stay in Casas. The hotels are badly run, inefficient and expensive. However, the Casa Grande was wonderful. It is noisy at the top as there is live music every night on the roof terrace. This is a treat but if you need sleep ask for a room in the middle floors, not too near the road or the roof. The hotel is really traditional and full of character. It is centrally placed and feels like the true cuban deal. The food was expensive and you can get better dinners elsewhere. Breakfast was good and the bar attractive.
The menu was extensive, the staff helpful and service was timely. All the dishes were well presented and tasty. There is a resident magician - an interesting change from loud music. The dining room is on an open terrace overlooking Parque Cespedes.
The location is prime ... the hotel is large check in is a breeze. Amazing rooftop ( this is the best part of the hotel). The AC units need to be fixed as we had to switch rooms and so did my parents. In the new room the AC barely worked and it left the room with this cold humid feeling, everything felt wet and it was uncomfortable but it was better than no AC. They really need to air out the rooms as it did smell old and musty in some of the rooms. Also the tubs in the bathroom were filthy as well as the shower curtains. A big plus is that they have an elevator.
From the heat in the moist and busy atmosphere of Santiago de Cuba. Big terrace, great view and nice cocktails are a good way to close your day. Bit expensive as you have to spent 3CUC per personal n and wine is 5CUC. Top price I have paid in Cuba..
