Built in the modernist style of the 1950’s, the hotel Jagua has recently been renovated with a more contemporary look. The lobby remains a focal point of the hotel and has a colourful and avant-garde look with stylish furniture, contemporary art on the walls and glass fronts making the lobby light and airy. The bar here is very popular.
Located in the picturesque Punta Gorda area of the city, a slim headland that reaches into Cienfuegos Bay, the hotel sits right next to the Caribbean waters. The sunsets here are beautiful and can be seen from many rooms and the hotel gardens.
The Jagua has a large outdoor pool with spacious sun terraces leading to the sea, and guests can dine at the buffet restaurant. There is also a small cabaret and disco where a Tropicana style performance takes place regularly throughout the week.
Next door to the Jagua can be found the unique and famous Moorish style palace called Palacio del Valle where you can enjoy a drink on the rooftop or gourmet dining in the ornate restaurant. There are also a number of excellent private restaurants nearby and the centre of Cienfuegos is a 15-minute walk from the hotel along the Malecon promenade that runs along the length of the bay.

Hotel Jagua: Location
Rooms at Hotel Jagua
The Jagua is a comfortable, well located hotel that offers guests amazing views, a great pool to relax in after exploring the city, and overall a pleasant stay. We really like the location and being able to sit next to the sea and admire the view away from the bustle of the city centre.
The 139 standard rooms are bright and spacious, with excellent views of Cienfuegos and the bay. All have air-conditioning, private bathroom and satellite television. For a small supplement you can upgrade to a Junior Suite that has a small living area and enhanced views across the sea.
