This hotel is a must!
Although at $70.00/night/rm it is more expensive than the Casas Particular, it is an experience that must be had. Newly renovated with help from UNESCO, it is Gibara's attempt to lure tourism, and expand the International Film Festival that takes place in April. It is an awesome example of a Spanish Colonial Home with 20 ft. ceilings, each painted and sculpted differently. Almost every room has a veranda and sea view. The staff is dedicated, the meals are fine dining, and the rooms very clean and comfortable.
There is a rooftop bar with a band, and a further 32 steps up to a tower for a 360 degree view of the town.
Be sure to check with your resort hotel about an overnight Catamaran tour from Guardalavaca to Gibara, staying at the Hotel Ordono.

The casa we were directed to in Gibara was full, so we were taken to this casa instead where we met with a warm welcome despite two of our party being sick with vomiting and diarrhea. Our hosts, Robert and Norkis, were really worried for us and offered to get us a doctor or some medicin from the chemist. Thankfully we had pretty much recovered the next day and I think they tried to make up for our night of illness by plying us with quantities of food to build up our strength.
Wonderful hosts. Robert speaks a little English. They are Quakers and their beliefs show in how they look after their guests.
Both rooms have private bathrooms and are off a courtyard.
