Castro, Inc. has admitted defeat and thrown in the towel. Its phony tourism conglomerate GAESA –which had been using its own money to fund construction of a massive luxury hotel in Havana — has admitted defeat and handed over the project to Spain’s Iberostar hotel chain.
Unlike most other apartheid hotels on the island, which have been funded and operated by foreign firms, this one was totally in the hands of Castro, Inc.. In other words, it was to serve as a crown jewel of sorts in its apartheid tourism industry, and the plan was to keep 100% of the profits.
Now Castro, Inc. will have to share profits with Iberostar, as it does with most others of their apartheid hotels and resorts. The 40-story hotel was scheduled to open in 2022, but the date has shifted to 2024. Topped off, but still under construction, it is the tallest building on the island.
Never mind all the overcrowded crumbling hovels collapsing around it day after day. Those buildings are for Cuban savages and don’t matter. This one is for superior human beings. And superior beings matter a lot.

The Gaviota Group, belonging to the business conglomerate of the Cuban military GAESA and whose president was the late Luis Alberto Rodríguez López-Calleja, will hand over the management of the Torre K hotel, located in the heart of the capital’s Vedado, to the Spanish company Iberostar.
The building, built from scratch with entirely Cuban capital at the intersection of 23rd and K, was designed under the standards of a five-star hotel and is expected to be inaugurated sometime in 2024, although they originally planned to open it in 2022. , after four years of construction.
Popularly known as the K Tower or López-Calleja Tower, in honor of Raúl Castro’s former son-in-law and leader of GAESA until his sudden death in 2021, the construction is seen by Cubans as a waste of the Castro regime that prioritizes the construction of hotels with money from the public budget instead of investing in agriculture to alleviate the hunger of the population.
With the decision of the Gaviota Group to hand over the operation to Iberostar, the Spanish company, present in Cuba since the 1990s, will now have four hotels in Havana and 19 in the rest of the main tourist destinations in the country such as Varadero, Cayo Guillermo and Holguín.
