First off, the city of Camaguey is often overlooked as a destination to visit in Cuba and I don't understand why. My friend's mom grew up in Camaguey and would not stop talking about it so I decided to add it in my Cuba itinerary. I absolutely loved Camaguey! It is historical and colonial with its labyrinth and colorful streets. I stayed at El Marques because I saw how centrally located it was to everything in the city and it truly was! Just a few steps from all the paladares (restaurants), bars, churches, art galleries, etc. The hotel is super elegant and the friendly staff made me feel at home. I stayed 2 nights and wanted to stay longer. The rooms are clean and a good size, the courtyard was my favorite!
I went to Camaguey for only 2 nights and I stayed at El Marques. This place made my short visit jsimplyl. It was quiet, private and still centrally located. I could walk to some local paladares for dinner and enjoy a cup of cafe con leche in the patio area for breakfast. It is also clean and the staff is friendly and welcoming. I would stay here time and time again.
Beautiful boutique hotel in Camaguey!!! Recently renovated and in excellent location - walking distance from restaurants, and main squares. The rooms are nice and clean plus exceptional customer service!!
This is a newly opened hotel operated together with the Sevillana. Together these hotels make up a very cool complex. We traveled with a group of friends (7 of us). 3 stayed at the Sevillana and 4 at the Marques. Really, the only place to stay when visiting Camaguey. We need to credit the well trained staff that makes this place feel like your own private home in Camaguey. A very comfortable, yet authentic Cuba experience.
Y Sevillana is a small newly renovated hotel. The entry is into a courtyard surrounded by nicely appointed rooms. Upstairs is a terrace that surrounds the courtyard and has two hot tubs for relaxing. The rooms were large and very comfortable. The rooms had individual air conditioners that were very modern and effective. The first night there was no hot water, but on subsequent nights hot water was available. Fortunately, in Cuba, the tap water is not particularly cold. The hotel has both 110V and 220V outlets. Unfortunately they are both the American style duplex outlets arranged horizontally. The one on the right is 110 and on the left 220. They are not always labeled.
