Hotel Mirador

Hotel in San Diego de Los Baños

The Mirador is a low-key stopoff. Predating the Revolution by five years, the hotel was built in 1954 to accommodate spa-seekers headed for the adjacent Balneario San Diego. Well-tended terraced gardens slope up to rooms that match the pretty exterior: crisp, cozy and looking for the most part onto balconies with garden and balneario views.

Downstairs there's a pleasant swimming pool and an outdoor grill that does whole roast pig on a spit. There's also a proper restaurant con una vista (with a view) inside, serving Cuban cuisine.
