The archipelago Sabana-CamagŁey, on the north coast of Cuba, one of the largest coral barriers of the world, lies a pearl: Cayo Guillermo.
Crystal-clear waters, white sand and unforgettable greenery, tinged with pink flamencos. This cay is an inspiration for nature lovers and for whom, like Diego Velazquez, or closer to us, Hemingway, wishes to conquer the Jardines del Rey.

The Hotel Occidental Allegro Club in Cayo Guillermo is one of those hotels that seem to defy their price point and star rating. Possibly due to the idyllic surroundings, the hotel also excels under the new Occidental management and due to its complete makeover refurbishment in 2012.
