    Melia Cohiba: Buying cigars

    by RKyle Written Nov 17, 2012

    You can also buy them at the airports if you want to take them home with you.

    Be careful about buying from the locals, a friend of mine bought a box of Monticristo #4's off one of the hotel help, everything proper but they had to be seconds as half of them had next to no draw.
    I have bought mine in Havana at the Melia Cohiba for the last 6 years, very helpful staff.

    This place is unique, never been in a cigar lounge before.

    If you enjoy them what better place to try before you buy.

    This is a place for adults to indulge, you can relax with your cigars maybe a rum or cocktail to go with it, on rocking chairs over looking the lagoon, listening to the sounds of the cuban salsa band, who jam on most nights, no children allowed on the premises.
    Adjacent to the lounge is the Billiards room.

    The cigars are displayed in glass cabinets prices range from £3.00 to hundreds.

    You can buy them in singles or wooden boxes

    They also do a cigar rolling session, which is an art in itself and must be seen to be appreciated.

    What to buy: Cigars and Rum.

    What to pay: 3 cuc's to hundreds for the cigars.

  • Artisans at the Oasis

    Lobby

    Each day local artists display their wares at an open air market located in the centre of the resort. Don't try and bargain with the prices, they are reasonably priced already and the people don't make very much money as it is.
    There are also a few shops located at the resort with souvenir items such as T-shirts, towels, hats, mugs, etc.

    What to buy: All I bought was a large beach towel, some mugs and T-shirts. I imagine Cuban cigars would be an enjoyable item to purchase for some people.

    What to pay: Reasonably priced souvenirs but not much selection at the resort.

  • Take it with you

    by SueC-UK Written Jun 6, 2003

    There are very few shops in the Melia resort and none outside of the resorts on Cayo Coco so it`s best to take everything you need with you. It is possible to buy basic toiletry items although I found it impossible to buy tissues in the resort after my supply ran out.
