I stayed here one night when I needed somewhere to stay and there was limited options. Its somewhere to stay but it isn't anywhere to get excited about. Its around 3 - 4 km from the city city centre. The rooms are somewhere to sleep and there's hot water but it isn't anything to get excited about. Breakfast isn't up to much but food in Cuba isn't worth getting excited about anyway. As per the Melia Santiago de Cuba they don't seem to have a clue about protecting food against cross contamination so if you're on any sort of speciality diet, be careful eating here (don't go to Cuba is better advice for that)
The accomodation is acceptable - the walls rather thin.Officialy 3 stars - two international restaurants - poolbar !!
Unique Quality: Going around the hotel and having first contact with the people and streets.
Walking to the breakfast rooms you will see this huge tree - like a peacock it will welcomes you !
Directions: About 4km from the center
Friendly servants - clean rooms - but the walls are so thin.
Good start to explore Cuba - a day&night opened swimmingpool and bar.So a good place to have a first meeting with the co-travellers and the local guides.
Unique Quality: The first breakfast is acceptable - but a lot of agencies starts in this hotel their trip in Cuba.
Cuban official hotels are not interested in exploring and optimalise the touristical business.
So the second breakfast will give you another opinion.There is no more cheese (rare in Cuba) and the choice became less
Nevertheless - Cuba is the greatest country to visit and i hope it will stay that way - even after the Fidel Period.
Directions: Near a local "Animation Park" - therefore the watchtowers - believe me - not to control the tourists because in Cuba - i felt free !
