If you are looking for a modern, comfortable hotel in Baracoa which offers great hospitality in tandem with fine views, you won’t find many better than Hostal Gaviota Rio Miel.
Hostal Rio Miel only opened in late 2013 & is an eco-friendly, solar powered hotel that ensures a ready supply of hot water at all times. The staff are especially helpful, doing all they can to ensure you enjoy Baracoa & the wider Guantanamo area. From arranging swimming at nearby hotels & advising on local attractions, to advice on wider places of interest such as Salto Fino, the highest waterfall in the Caribbean. Car parking is also available at the hotel.
Hostal Rio Miel has a great location on Baracoa’s promenade overlooking the ocean & you don’t even need an ocean-facing room to enjoy it, with the hotel’s lounge providing good views of the bustling Malecón. However there is no lift &, with rooms over three floors, this hotel may not suit guests with mobility problems.
Accommodation at Rio Miel is on a bed & breakfast basis, with hearty breakfasts served in the lobby bar, which also provides snacks throughout the day. The food & drink is relatively basic but of a good standard & the bar area is impressively clean.
You will know you have stumbled on a hidden gem the moment you arrive in the airy lounge & meet the wonderful smiling staff. Rio Miel is a charming, modern & very comfortable hotel in a great waterfront location which will leave a lasting impression from your visit to Baracoa.
