By all standards, this is a luxury hotel with a beautiful lobby and great bars. Remembering we're in Cuba, certain considerations must be extended to management and maintenance. Repairs and supplies are probably very expensive and/or unavailable. But something must be done regarding general maintenance. (We stayed in two different rooms during our trip because we were in Havana two nights and then returned after two nights in Cienfuegos.) Both rooms showed signs or wear and tear but there was no excuse for clogged drains. We reported this to housekeeping but nothing changed. The second room also had a major malfunction with the toilet indicating that some general plumbing problems exist. The air conditioning was excellent. The pool area has many areas with missing tiles, crumbling concrete and several broken lounge chairs. Having stayed in lesser hotels on a previous trip, and after visiting a nearby hotel, Melia Cohiba rates very highly. Staff always seemed willing to help and did so in a courteous manner. Security is present throughout public access areas. Read less

The Melia Cohiba near downtown Havana is an elegant facility with a clear desire by the personnel to satisfy the clientele. Accommodations are excellent given the restrictions placed by a deteriorated economy and the local politics. Nevertheless, cleanness should remain a prime priority. When we arrived at the Junior suite on the 12th floor of the hotel, the first thing we found was that the room’s floor had not been swept appropriately. We were welcome by a death cockroach, a piece of gum, and a chocolate wrapping on the floor’s suite. Lack of maintenance was also evident at the outdoor pool where cracked tiles, discarded empty plastic glasses, and debris in the floor area were seen all over the place. While I am sympathetic to the limitations that are imposed to the Hotel personnel by the prevailing political environment, a greater effort should be placed in keeping this nice Hotel clean.

For the standards of Cuba, must be the top. Service, view and accessibility at its highest. Civilization and internet. In the heat of the day, they let us rest in the lobby cafe, communicate with our family and get something to drink and eat. Expensive but totally worth it! You can also exchange money or buy a wifi card.

As part of a tour group, the Melia Cohiba was the first hotel we stayed in. Everything was excellent; the room, a/c, wifi and the customer service. The location is a little out of the way (of the older part of Havana) but since we had transportation that was not a problem. The views from our room (the 18th floor) were magnificent.
