      A good choice, if you require all modern conveniences

      This striking, and to some, downright ugly, hotel is located some ten minutes from the city centre in a safe but somewhat decrepit middle class neighbourhood. The facilities are excellent and rooms are large with up-to-date bathrooms, some with jacuzzi bathtubs. Upkeep is spotty and needs some repairs, but by Cuban standards its not too bad. The pool area is outstanding. There is a good selection of restaurants, with a fine buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner, which becomes a bit chaotic during high season. Staff is friendly and efficient. Elevators are very slow when the hotel is full.

      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.

      After a scary Aeroflot plane journey down to Santiago we checked ourselves into another 5 star hotel and prepared ourselves for the best Festival in Cuba !!!! Unfortunately, we only managed to find the carnival on our last night and none of us had our cameras with us ! YouŽll just have to take our word that it was a spectacular parade full of women in feathers dancing on ...
