El Castillo is all about the location set high on the hill above Baracoa on the site of the old fort. We had spectacular views over the town to the sea and then from the balcony spectacular vistas out to El Yunque and the terrifying looking air strip. The pool area and bar were lovely and made the most of the views, our room was spacious and clean and the balcony was an excellent spot for a sundowner! We had hot water (gasp/swoon) and were genuinely comfortable, in part due to the fierce, but welcome, air conditioning! Breakfast was pretty average unfortunately and it was hard to get much in the way of a smile out of anyone but I can't see how you'd get a better place to stay in Cuba's first capital!
