Cuidad de Guantanamo

A travel blog entry by roadscholarorg


Today we started our last full day on the island of Cuba. We toured the city of Guantanamo and surrounding area.

Our first stop was the home of a local dance troupe that performs "Tumba Francesca", a dance form that is a unique blend of French and West African dance styles. It is Haitian in origin, and was introduced into this part of …

City of Culture

A travel blog entry by roadscholarorg


Today, we arrived in Santiago de Cuba for the final phase of our trip. It was a very good day. Santiago is the second biggest city in Cuba, and was the capitol before Havana. It has several sites and attractions in it, including El Morro fortress and the grave of Jose Marti. We visited both of these sites, and they were definitely worth the time. …

We left the hotel at 5:30 AM for our 8:00 AM charter flight to Santiago de Cuba. The airport waiting area was nice with a lot of breakfast opportunities. The airport was much smaller than Havana and immigration and baggage went very smoothly. We have a very large bus for our group of 15 plus the two guides. Our local guide is Joli, who is very …

Santiago de Cuba - The Melting Pot

A travel blog entry by iluv2xplore


We had an early morning breakfast at the hotel, which consisted of a large spread of tropical fruit, vegetables, cheese, eggs/ omelet's (made to order), several different kinds of juices, a variety of meats, and the wonderful Baracoan cacao that we had learned about the previous day. I was still a bit full from the eating frenzy the day before, but …

A travel blog entry by syrena


Coming from London, where I take our travel options for granted I am shocked that there are so few travel options in Cuba. The situation is worsened as it is not only an island with undeveloped infrastructure, it has communist government owned resources. You would have thought that at least one bright spark would have increased the three flights a …

    The hotel is part of a Spanish Chapin and co-owned by the Cuban government and Melia. It was good and had all of the amenities. It needed a lot of maintenance. The elevators in the morning were so busy that you had to go up to go down. Many tours were staying here excellent entertainment intheveningeveningsannpublic area. nice

    Santiago de Cuba - The Melting Pot

    After a full day of activities, we finally made it to our hotel, the Meliá Santiago de Cuba, which is quite a nice hotel. As I am somewhat of a foodie, it is of no surprise that my fondest memory of the hotel relates to just that... My dad and I had quite the dining experience! The La Casona dining room seats approximately 350 people, and is one of 4 formal restaurants on the property. There were COUNTLESS food stations throughout the dining hall, serving every kind of cuisine imaginable - AND each food station provided the ability to get food cooked to order. I knew my stomach was going to be a happy camper when I saw that the seafood station had 10+ different types of fish and just as many types of shellfish to choose from, all cooked to order, and the fruit station had a wide selection including mangos, papaya, passion fruit, pineapples, and guava - a few of my favorite tropicals. There were also vegetable, pasta, meat, poultry, bread, rice and grain, juice, and dessert stations - to name a few. Typically, I am not a huge fan of buffets, but I can honestly say the food was INCREDIBLE!

    Nice hotel- staff members let it down terribly

    Stayed in one of the junior suites for 10 days. Great room, but some members of staff let the entire place down. One bar woman at the bar was constantly ignoring customers and chose to play with the mint instead of serving. Very few of the staff members say hello as they pass, but rather look annoyed.
    On the other hand, had amazing service from a small few. Should have taken names but didnt have a chance.
    There is very little choice in the area at the same standard so they ignore customer service.
