Casa Granda is a great location on a busy city centre park. The food is very good, better overall than we had been led to expect about Cuban food. The service was very good and very attentive.

We visited one late afternoon in the hope to have drinks with a lovely view. The views across the main square, the cathedral and the rest of the city are indeed impressive. The same cannot be said about the drinks and certainly not about the service staff. It appears that they see guests as unwelcome intruders that disrupt their collegial... More

Right opposite the main square is Hotel Casa Granda. This would be the best hotel in town if it were not for the rather poor service, we also missed a bit more of cleanliness and promptness regarding the staff. However, this is one of the best places to get the pulse of this magical city where roots and traditions parade... More

We did not eat there but occasionally went for a mojito on the terrasse. This is obviously the meeting point for all the tourists in Santiago, as the hotel has WiFi. The mojito is good and the service friendly.

We were staying in the hotel and were waiting for our transport to the airport. The downstairs restaurant is ok, food and service average. Just outside, you can pick up the wi-fi in a comforatable chair.

This outdoor area veranda style open restaurant was a place that felt normal. The hotel was to the rear of the entry making the restaurant the focus overlooking Cespedes park. You can sit for hours people watching and consuming oodles of beverages to keep cool. This was a savior for us as a tummy bug playing havoc with our systems... More

After navigating my way around Santiago, I found that the Hotel Casa Granda Restaurant is the perfect place to have a meal, a drink, and to hop on WIFI. I consistently had great meals there. Everything from the Pollo Frito, to the Cerdo Asado. The fruit salads are actually pretty good too. The Mojitos are legit, and oh so refreshing... More

We stayed in the Casa Granda and ate at the restaurant one time. The food was OK, the service is not great but the view of Santiago de Cuba is amazing and if there is a band playing when you are there, you will not see better salsa dancing anywhere.

Our group (Road Scholar) enjoyed a light lunch on the roof of the Hotel Casa Granda. The view of the cathedral square, nice sandwiches, cold beers and entertaining music made this a pleasant dining experience.
