Hotel Overview


On the edge of the bustling city, a mile from the historic centre.

Rooms at Meliá Santiago de Cuba

Relish the sweeping views from your floor to ceiling windows at Meliá Santiago de Cuba; these have to be the best in town. Choose from a classic room or opt for the more luxurious suites: the Presidential Suite is remarkably spacious with two bathrooms and a large lounge area. Some of the more exclusive room types offer an additional service which includes 24 hour room service, massages and a selection of complimentary alcoholic beverages.

Food and facilities

Unlike many other Cuban hotels, Meliá Santiago de Cuba boasts a whole variety of restaurants: from poolside El Criollo to Italian cuisine at La Fontana; Cuban and international cuisine at La Casona and La Isabelica to the more relaxed snack bars. But our favourite spot for sundowners has to be Bello Bar on the rooftop, where you can watch the glittering skyline over cocktails.

Activities at Meliá Santiago de Cuba

Luxuriate by the pool (there are three, in fact - one of which is a designated kids’ pool) framed by palm trees and sun loungers, hammocks and palapas. Venture into the mythical Sierra Maestra where you can climb the highest peak in Cuba and tread in Fidel Castro’s footsteps. Any trip to Santiago de Cuba would be incomplete with a visit to the 26th of July Museum, enshrined in the Moncada Barracks where Fidel led his revolutionary coup in 1953.
