This seaside hotel is the idea place for divers or families looking for a comfortable place to stay and enjoy the area. Situated in the Bay of Pigs, on the famous and beautiful white sandy beach of Playa Giron, this hotel is a little slice of paradise. Guests can enjoy the beach, the crystal clear warm waters, diving and snorkelling, or hiking through the native vegetation in this truly stunning location. This area has some of the best open sea diving in the country, but has multiple coral reefs in shallow water accessible from the shore, also. There are saltwater flooded caves that lead to the system of lakes on the Zapata Peninsula National Park within the Matanzas province. A little farther out to sea, the seabed drops away to create an underwater wall, teeming with coral, brightly coloured fish and other fascinating sea life. There are wrecks to explore here, also, and diving equipment can be hired from the hotel. Guests who don't hold the proper diving certification can hire snorkelling equipment and float on the surface with the sun beating down on their backs, taking in the underwater world beneath. Accommodation at this peaceful hotel by the sea is comfortable, clean and spacious. There are rooms and free standing chalet-style one or two bedroom apartments, spaced far enough apart from each other that all the guests can hear at night is the gentle, calming lapping of waves against the shore; surely the best sound to fall asleep to. Rooms have air conditioning, minibars, safes, private bathrooms and satellite TV. There are bars and restaurants at the hotel, as well as table tennis, two swimming pools, a disco and daily and nightly entertainment. Guests are also welcome at the Caleta Buena, just a short bus ride away, where there is access to more dive sites and further restaurants. For anyone wanting something to do on land instead of in the sea, the Bay of Pigs Museum nearby details the history of the famous U.S. invasion of 1961 and, along with the military ruins, makes for an interesting visit.
