We stopped by in the late afternoon to visit this impressive site. Definitely a must see while in Cienfuegos. Very big tourist stop, especially in the late afternoon. A picture of the sunset from here is a must. That being said, it was busy. Drinks were very pricey here, so maybe just stop for one :)
Spend your time taking pictures, as this castle is breathtaking from the finishing materials to the artistic design. Next time I would come much earlier to beat the crowds and really take in everything inside. People come for the view but miss out on what is offered inside.

The building is wonderful, to go up to the roof is now $5 CUC and you get a drink included. Worth the money. The view is astounding, the breeze refreshing. I have not eaten here, other reviews say its mediocre. Wish I could find a menu to see the prices. Planning to take a group here in February for the architecture tour of the city.

I don't think this is a must see highlight of Cuba, but if you are in the vicinity then it is well worth having a look at this home turned hotel. It is located right by the sea so you get some stunning views from the rooftop. The interior is also worth a few photos with its unusual Moorish style. I wouldn't maybe spend too long here, but glad I went.

Stunning free building to wonder around and admire. From the roof top you can relax with a drink and listen to a band play.

Its about an hours walk from the city center and on the way you can check out the yaht club, macron and baseball stadium. Or just catch a taxi, there are lots of them around.

This former sugar baron "castle" offers with it's mongrel architecture a interesting insight into an Amircanised rich pre-revolution rich persons taste. Probably somewhere in Hollywood you can find similar. Moorirish, medieval and gothic styles very nice view from top terrace includinh among other things the cupola of the only never finished atomic power plant in Cuba. Go see. The state run restaurant offers slow service and bony fish filet.

Beautiful building, seems to be a Government restaurant where no one goes, but all the tables are beautifully laid out.
We went upstairs to the bar for an evening drink and were somewhat disappointed - just a load of randon tables and chairs set out around a large rooftop with a band playing for 1st 5 minutes before packing up at around 7pm. Worth going up for the views, but could be so much better in private sector I suspect.

Lovely architecture, loved the rooftop view. Had cocktails on roof, then dinner. Food was typical Cuban but better in that it was nicely presented with a tasty sauce. Staff were very efficient. Good food and lovely surroundings.

The Lonely Planet guide adviced not to go in this place for a meal.. a cocktail could be sufficient to live the atmosphere of the beautiful palace (always according to the guide)... instead, we decided to go for dinner......... the building is magic.. and this was the only positive element of our meal... the tables set up was awfull, the prices too high, the dishes terrible (I just tasted my paella and yuck!), the waiters were impersonal and cold.. please don’t go there to eat!!!

It was super hot the day I visited the palacio - and I just spent the afternoon on the rooftop which has a bar and a lovely seating area with good views of the bay. The palace itself is not large and given that it is now a restaurant, apart from admiring the architecture of the palace, and the good views on the rooftop, there isn't much to see.

This former private residence is now an elegant restaurant. Even if you don't dine there, be sure to see the building and grounds. The architectural styles and craftsmanship are magnificent.
