The Christopher Columbus admiral discoverer of the Isla de la Juventud Island, San Juan Evangelist called it. Island of the Parrots and of the Treasure they figure among their first names, in a time where from the XVI century and until the XVIII one the isle served from refuge to several crews of pirates and corsairs. For the aboriginal ones, it was simply Siguanea, while the denomination of Island of Pines was the most durable, with an origin that goes back to the forests of pines of the species finally Caribbean that covered the region, is named Isla de la Juventud officially in 1978.

This beautiful hotel can also count histories and corsairs' legends and pirates that really used the island to hide its treasures and in whose histories the writer was inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to write his novel, The Island of the Treasure, they count that treasures buried by the pirates still exist and that they have never been located.

Welcome to my site dedicated to the Hotel El Colony and its related Marina and International Scuba Diving Center. I am "poco a poco" researching and updating it with the aim to provide as complete as possible record of the hotel's ancient and recent history; bearing in mind that the goings-on today may one day be of historical interest.

My site is NOT the official website of the current hotel operator, and is by no means endorsed by them; but I am grateful for their help with the research.

You can make from this site room reservations through the Bizloco eTravel System operated by Cubaism Ltd.

Best wishes for 2014
