Spent here 2 nights.
Hotel staff were super friendly and welcoming. They were helpful trying to guide us through all we wanted to do and giving us tips and tricks to travel around Cuba the best way possible.
Lobby and pool area are pretty impressive. They had fresh flowers decorating the hotel and it seemed extremely clean. Lunch at the pool restaurant was pretty tasty, however service that day was a little slow even though there were only 3 tables filled.
Room was up to par. Pretty wide and with great size windows. During this time of the year it’s very hot and the a/c worked to perfection. Towels and linen were what you would expect at a Melia hotel. King size comfortable beds. Cable tv.
Breakfast service was included and quality was ok. Fruits, breads, eggs, cold cuts and cheeses. Some traditional Cuban cooking. You pick.
One weird thing. They only had a weird elongated pillow. If you wanted any other pillow you needed to order them from an a la carte menu (with extra charges).
One tiny cockroach did appear in the bathroom but other than that both the room and hotel (overall) seemed constantly clean.
We visited their Havana Café to watch the show and had a blast. Awesome performers and great staff. Dinner was just ok, I did find the packages (including cover fee and meal) a bit pricey for Cuban standards.
This hotel is located in the Vedado area a pretty safe neighborhood just a few steps away from the famous Malecon. Keep in mind It is not walking distance (under the Cuban summer sun) from the old Havana center and historic sites.
Protip: Do not get room service. Price is more than double than what you would pay at any of their restaurants.
