Colonial Cayo Coco

Resort in Cayo Coco

The Spanish-colonial villas with attractively tiled public areas lend the Colonial a cloistered, refined air – a pleasant break from the standard unadorned design of the usual Cuban all-inclusives.

This was the island's first hotel when it opened in 1993 (ancient history by Cayo Coco standards) and it remains handsomer than a lot of its younger siblings.
