I had the good fortune of going to Cuba with a group to learn about their Botanical Gardens and farms. Staying at the Melia Cohiba as our hub was a wonderful experience of it's own. The rooms were beautiful, clean, and well supplied with every item a traveler could want. The bed and linens were luxurious, the view of the Malecon were outstanding, and the restaurants were delightful. Our favorite was the Restaurante Med. The Risotto with Mushrooms and Shrimp was delicious as was the wine selection recommended by our server. The staff, Osmay, Fernando and Martha made us feel like neighbors. They were the Best of the Best! Read less

Stayed in Havana for three days at the end of February. The hotel is quite nice and seems to be fairly well maintained. We were charged for coffee pods that were brought to our room on day two of our stay, although we didn’t use the pods. Sampled the food at The Med restaurant, was brought the wrong entree. Let the waitress know and was told that this is what she was told to bring to the table. Nothing was done to correct the order. The food was tasteless, bland. The breakfast buffet offered many choices however, bland and tasteless. We found the front desk staff terribly rude. Would not return. Will stay somewhere where you feel welcomed and not just a nuisance. Read less

The #MeliaCohiba #Havana was a great place to stay for us. Pretty and by the ocean with a beautiful pool area! Thank you @meliahtlresorts! (Several very good restaurants are right across the street, too)

Great service would definitely stay there again. Read less

Thew staff was not very courteous and friendly. I had booked a Junior Suite but still had to pay for the coffee in the room from the coffee machine. The Hotel has probably not been revamped at all since it was built in 1995.
