The accommodations used in our Cuba travel program are often difficult to guarantee as availability is controlled by the Cuban government. Whether it comes to changes in your accommodations or our daily schedule, travel to Cuba requires flexibility and a sense of adventure. Below are the hotels we intend to use on our Classic Art & Culture itinerary.
Enjoying a choice location just off the famous Malecón seaside walkway and overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, the Meliá Cohiba is a five-star member of the renowned Melia chain. The property also boasts one of Havana's best pools. The Melia Cohiba showcases a gym, sauna, baseball-themed italian restaurant, piano bar, jacuzzi and solarium. All rooms include air conditioning, telephone, satellite LCD TV, electronic safe, minibar, coffee maker with coffee, iron and ironing board, hairdryer and WiFi.
The Melia Varadero features well-appointed rooms with convenient amenities, but this spectacular hotel also leaves quite an impression. Not only because of the spaciousness and the exterior elevators, but also because the lobby is one colossal exotic garden, revealing wooden sculptures and fountains. Room amenities include air conditioning, television with cable/satellite, safe and minibar.
The boutique La Ronda Hotel opens onto Parque Céspedes and is housed in a 19th century townhouse. The 17 air-conditioned bedrooms open to an atrium patio with palms and potted plants. The high ceilings and colonial tile floors help keep rooms cool, and those facing south have tall French doors opening to balconies overlooking the plaza. Satellite TVs, telephones, small refrigerators and in-room safes are standard.
During your time at the Cambria Suites Miami Airport hotel, you may stretch you legs at the nearby lake or unwind by the heated pool. Your oversized suite features two flat-screen LCD televisions, CD/DVD player, cordless speakerphone, microwave, refigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer, sofa sleeper, iron and ironing board. Free wireless high-speed Internet access is also provided.
