Hotel Encanto Ordoño is the tallest building in quaint, peaceful Gibara. Founded in 1817, the city - also called La Villa Blanca – is a repository for colonial legend and lore. The hotel is in the heart of Gibara’s urban historic center (declared a National monument in 2004), and dates from 1927; it’s named for its original owner, the Spanish merchant Felipe Ordoño Díaz.
After undergoing a complete restoration in order to meet the demands and standards of international tourism, the Encanto Ordoño was reopened in January 2013. And the results are impressive: this special property has been designated a Hotel Encanto (encanto means charm), meaning it has been designed for cultural tourism and maintains the highest level of historic authenticity.
The renovation combines timeless elegance with modern functionality and amenities. The roof terrace is sublime – kick back on one of the loungers on the comfortable sundeck and you’ll enjoy the same vistas taken in by visitors from the 15th century until today.
Gibara is famous for its Festival de Cine Pobre, (usually held in April) which draws artists and guests from around the world and brings out the majority of the villagers. But no matter if you’re not here for the festival – a visit to Gibara is worth it any time of year.
