Hotel Ordono is a boutique-style property in the arty port Gibara on the north east coast.

Gibara is the epitome of a remote one-horse town, a folksy and recently renovated fishing port on the coast near Holguin which is the perfect host for its blossoming film and arts festivals. The boutique-style Hotel Ordoño, a former Spanish colonial residence which has been delicately and sensitively restored, is a response to the growing interest in the town among visitors to Cuba. The exterior and some of the stained glass features (typical of Gibara's architecture), including an impressive atrium, are ornate but the air-conditioned guest rooms are decorated with contemporary simplicity and have a light and airy feel. Each of these rooms and suites has individual character and painted murals in the bathrooms. There's a two-floored roof terrace where you can take the sun, and an à la carte restaurant (but no lift). Service is reputedly friendly and helpful.

    CJC,

    GG, Diss
  • The hiking tour above Topes de Collantes lead by Valentine was fantastic. Wonderful sights and sounds lead by an experienced guide with a good sense of humour.

    DM, Edinburgh
  • Most memorable: "The driving around seeing all the towns and villages and their inhabitants. Seeing and understanding how life has progressed since the revolution. We also found the scenery amazing…

    GG, Chepstow
  • It was an overall experience that we will remember rather than one specific moment.

    MB, London
  • Most memorable experience: "Witnessing the culture of Cuba. Seeing the state of buildings, the 50s cars and there really is great music in every bar!"
