    Location 10.0 /10

    Los Galeones is 48 miles from Santiago airport, a few miles from the Sierra Mar hotel and two minutes from the small town Chivirico. It is in the Granma region. The hotel is perched on a small hill, 60 metres above the sea. Good to know: the road between Santiago and the hotel is in a bad state. Make sure you've got good shock absorbers !

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The rooms in the main building as well as the bungalows are simply furnished. The most beautiful decor is outside: some rooms have an unimpeded view over the sea, the others overlook the Sierra Mar massif. People who don't like the heat will be happy with the ceiling fan. But there is no fridge or telephone. They have a bathroom with shower.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    Built in April 1990 and renovated in 1999, Los Galeones is in a one level, circular building. The architecture is simple and tasteful. The hotel has 34 rooms (including 2 suites).

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    We weren't able to test the Las Galeones restaurant as it was closed when we visited. The only restaurant in the hotel serves Cuban and international, la carte, cuisine. On the beach, a snack bar prepares grilled meat.

    Beach 8.70 /10

    It's not easy to get to Los Galeones beach: you have to climb down 200 steps to reach the clear waters on this quaint, private beach. Many fruit trees give shade and a snack bar blends in with the landscape. Its not worth saying that you don't make this journey more than twice a day. Its an ordeal having to climb up these stairs in the heat!

    To know

    This club-hotel does not cater for children less than 16 years old and is mainly for honey mooners. The guests have access to the facilities in the Sierra Mar hotel, in the same hotel chain, 6 miles away. The shuttle is free of charge. When we visited in July 2000, the hotel was closed for the season. The beach hadn't been cleaned. The hotel's tourist information organises visits for the school and the hospital in the town nearby, Chirvirico.

      The Bucanero is a quiet holiday club, isolated in a pretty countryside. It offers a magnificent sea view and a small charming beach.

      The Melia Santiago is a modern town hotel, offering all the usual services (or almost) of an international hotel. A business world lightened with a family seaside resort atmosphere.

      Le Carisol is one of the main club-hotels in the Oriente. Plenty of space and good atmosphere and service will compensate for the distance from Santiago de Cuba town.
