Didn't stay at the hotel but visited just to admire its view of the town and El Yunka. Steep drive way or flight of steps brings you to what was once a historic hill fort and is now a colonial style hotel.

I found no problem with the bathroom. It is not a luxury hotel but very clean and nice. All I can say, is when I return to Baracoa, and I will because it is a wonderful place, I will stat at El Castillo if at all possible.
