Iberostar Ensenachos  

Formerly, the Occidental Royal Hideaway Ensenachos, a luxurious hotel offering 506 rooms in « all-inclusive », managed by the Spanish hotel chain Iberostar (since June 2011). Several improvements have been made recently in this hotel, including a water park for children and new beach restaurants.

Please note since Dec. 2011 the hotel is now family oriented BUT with an adult only sector (Spa Suites, exclusive to Transat Holidays for Canadian customers). There is a water park in the family sector of the hotel (Park Suites). The only sector with concierge service is the Grand Village Suites (but no longer Butler service).

What makes it unique, there is only one hotel on the island. By respect for the environment, new structure shall not exceed the height of a royal palm tree, 2-3 floors and shall keep the existing mangroves and dunes for protection against hurricanes. Cuba is very environmentally friendly. For the same reason, the causeway has so many bridges! Please note that proper attire is required at night in hotel restaurants (long pants and closed shoes for gentlemen).
