The Vista Alegre neighbourhood where the Hotel Villa Gaviota is located has historically been one of the most upmarket residential areas in Santiago de Cuba. As a result, the area around the hotel is filled with beautiful old buildings. This makes it a particularly scenic location in one of Cuba's prettiest cities. The hotel itself is a 1950s construction that is a little more modest than its neighbouring buildings. It offers reasonably priced accommodation in a pleasant part of the city. The rooms in the Hotel Villa Gaviota are spacious and air conditioned. They are also equipped with en suite bathrooms and satellite television. The hotel serves breakfast and has an a la carte restaurant if visitors want to eat while on the premises. There are also plenty of places in the local area where guests can go to try out the local cuisine. The hotel has bars where visitors can go to relax with some cool refreshments. Entertainment is also provided in the evening and during the day. There is also a swimming pool for guests who want to cool off in the water. The hotel is conveniently located, with the city centre only a short taxi ride away. People who want to rent cars can park them safely in the hotel car park. The hotel is only 3 km away from the beach and within easy reach of the Sierra Maestra mountains and the Bacanao wildlife reserve. Santiago de Cuba is one of the country's most historic cities. It has several interesting museums and important landmarks that are well worth visiting to gain an understanding of Cuba's colonial past.
