Meliá Santiago de Cuba Review

With the look of a tropical erector set, this red, white, and blue high-rise is either playfully appealing or pompously postmodern, depending on your point of view. However controversial the exterior might be, no one argues about whether this Spanish-run hotel's service and amenities are top-notch—they simply are. Rooms are large and modern, with great city views from the upper floors. The vast lobby, cast in green marble, includes two restaurants and a business center with Internet access—almost unheard of—for a mere 5 cuc an hour. The lobby leads outdoors to a palm-lined pool complex surrounded by bars and restaurants. The buffet breakfasts and dinners at the main restaurant are good, and the house band, Aldo y Su Grupo, is hot; be sure to catch their happy-hour set at the rooftop nightclub.
