Playa Maguana is the most famous beach in an area with a wealth of beautiful beaches. I have stayed at Gaviota Villa Maguana with my wife and with Cuban friends a couple of times. The price is around $70 a night depending on season. The staff are friendly and the rooms in the 2 story wood villas are very comfortable. The hotel is located on a coral point with a small white sand beach out front. The main beach at Maguana can be accessed through a small gate on the west side of the property. There you can find a couple of local bar/cafes etc. and can arrange for a dinner of fish or spit-roasted pork from the locals for $8 or less. The bars and food at Maguana Beach are better and a lot less expensive than Villa Maguana. As far as I know there are no legal private houses to stay at near here but you can stay in the town of Baracoa and take a cab here for much less than staying at the hotel. You can't beat it for convenience though. If you are adventurous, there are many hidden beaches in this area that you can enjoy in solitude.
The main complaint I had with this hotel was the price and poor quality of the food (think fish that tastes like it has been in the freezer too long). Otherwise it is a relaxing place to stay.
