Melia Cohiba

Havana, Cuba

The hotel

Connecting you with Cuba’s captivating capital, Meliá Cohiba is just 50m from Havana’s world-famous Malecón. Its spot near the waterfront means it throws in enviable views over both city and coast – and, if those views get you in the mood for swimming, its freshwater lagoon pool is sure to quench that thirst. It may be moments from authentic Havana (and its bars and restaurants), and may deliver its own Cuban experiences, like dancing to the city’s soundtrack at Habana Café (one of its 11 food and drink outlets), but it has an international edge from its design to the club service of The Level’s executive rooms.

They listened to my horrible Spanish and were kind an understanding. They were able to convert lots of American Dollars into CUCs. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was fantastic. You could order custom omletts. Fantastic variety of other breakfast items such as oatmeal, green salad, youghurt, variety of fruit, bread, yoghurt, etc. Dinner was equally excellent. Housekeeping was excellent. Concierge was very good, too. Read less
