Located on the Caribbean Sea, its colonial balconies and walled city hark back to the era of pirates, corsairs and Spanish traditions. This beautifully converted hotel has significant architectural value and has been divided into Colonial and Republican styles.

All the guest rooms have a view over the cobbled old city, the Caribbean Sea or the beautiful interior tropical courtyards, and are excellently equipped to satisfy the most exquisite of tastes. Cooling sea breezes flow through the hotels graceful arches and provide a respite from the Caribbean’s warm tropical climate.

The Sofitel Santa Clara also boasts two restaurants, the Refectorio that serves delicious French cuisine and El Claustro with a more international menu. Why not relax and unwind in the El Coro bar over a Caribbean cocktail or indulge in a one of the many treatments offered in the hotel's spa.
