El Colony Hotel

3 stars


Serving as an ideal bease for visiting the world famous diving sites in Punta Frances, El Colony Hotel is located in the bay of Siguanea, just 45 minutes from the Nueva Gerona airport and only 35 minutes from Havana by plane. Well endowed with scuba diving centres as it sits right next to El Colony International Scuba Diving Centre, the place upon which the hotel is located is considered an aquatic paradise due to the transparence and clarity of its blue waters. This colourful hotel dates back to 1958, when it began operating as a Hilton property, with a casino and is strategically positioned on a heavenly coral-coloured beach of fine white sands. Guests here can benefit from the facilities offered by the International Diving Centre which is considered by many as one of the best diving centres in the world.

The 77 spacious rooms and 24 bungalows offer lovely views over the grounds and the beach and are well-equipped with modern amenities and facilities. If you're not out on a scuba diving excursion you can take a dip in the onsite swimming pool or choose from a variety of ther water sports. Whatever you plan to do here just bear in mind this is a tiny piece of island paradise in a remote location, so there's no nightlife and no other form of entertainment to speak of, but the secluded and spectacular natural surroundings more than make up for what the area lacks in action. After all you don't come to Cuba's number one scuba diving destination to party.

Excursions are organised daily for the nature lovers to visit places like the Punta Francés Marine National Park, Jones' Jungle, the hatchery of marine turtles or the Crocodiles Hatchery of the Lanier Marsh, not to mention that those interested in history can also visit nearby sites such as the Punta del Este Caves, the Property or the Model Prison, where Fidel Castro served two years and wrote his famous auto-biography, History Will Absolve Me .
