Melia Santiago De Cuba
From many rooms, in fact, you can enjoy views of the 19th-century architecture, or even the Sierra Maestra mountain range, which starts just beyond the city limits.
Rooms here are spacious and some appointed to the some of the best standards you’ll find in the province. The suites add indulgent touches like hydro-massage bathtubs more luxury, floor-to-ceiling windows that take mountain views. Upgrade to a ‘The Level’ room or suite, which gives you more personalised service, a host of complimentary extras and access to some exclusive lounges and areas of the hotel.
Dining is a delight here, with everything from Italian fare to Cuban specialities on offer at five eateries. Come evening time, watch the sunset on the rooftop terrace of Bello Bar, located on the hotel’s 15th floor then later head to Santiago Café for live music and dance the night away. At Daquari, the lobby bar, there’s lots to entertain, with a daily cultural programme offer alongside those all-important local cocktails. Well, Santiago de Cuba is known as the birthplace of rum!
With three swimming pools (one for children) and a wellness centre offering spa treatments and a sauna, there are plenty of ways to relax here when you’re not out exploring.
