The Hotel Jagua, a full-service hotel in lovely Cienfuegos, has an interesting history: the nearby Moorish Palacio del Valle, dating from the early 20th twentieth century, was sold to a developer in the 1950s who hoped to convert it into a casino with extended hotel facilities. He was close to finishing the Hotel Jagua for this purpose when the Cuban Revolution triumphed on January 1, 1959. The casino-operation was halted and the Hotel Jagua opened as the first hotel in post-revolutionary Cuba.
This hotel exhibits architectural lines and styles typical to the 1950s; from the lobby to the rooms, spaces here are big, open, and bright. The swimming pool overlooking the Bay is a delightful place to relax after visiting elegant Cienfuegos. There are daily activities offered at the hotel, and for night owls there’s a cabaret/disco several nights a week.
The city of Cienfuegos is located on a bay of the same name. At the southern extent of the city lies residential Punta Gorda (once a hideaway for the rich) overlooking the bay. Today, a waterside stroll here reveals beautiful original wooden (beach) houses and at the tip of the point, a lovely gazebo perfect for watching the sunset.
