We have just returned from our honeymoon in Cuba, staying in the Hotel Nacional for 3 nights before moving on to Varaderos. The hotel is beautiful! It has so much history - in fact there is even a historical tour of the hotel available! The room we had was massive with 2 double beds, and a big bathroom. The front of the hotel overlooks the sea, with the rear looking over into Havana - this is a view with a difference - new hotel buildings mixed with old dilapidated ones!
All the staff were really friendly and keen to help/talk to you.
The negatives were few......no tea/coffee making facilities in the room, and the restaurant menus do not cater for vegetarians - although we knew to expect this before we went. But they are always happy to provide a salad!!!
We spent a lovely few hours around one of the outside pools, again with faultless service from the waitress there.
I fully recommend the half day tour of Havana - you get a real feel for its history and get a feel for where you would like to explore on your own.
Havana really is an eye-opener and well worth a visit - but we were glad to move on after 3 days.
