we stayed in Las Americas in january as we checked in really late so we didnt have much desire to drive around to seek a better deal, but there is another hotel across the street which is excellent nad 5star, we were travelling on the budget so we stayed at "very average - simple no frills" hotel for couple nights. its in the middle of the city, so in the day its plenty people to see around and quick to get around.
what we liked the most about this hotel is, for cuban standard, the huge and hot stand up shower. otherwise its nothing special, in the morning i heard traffic which kept me up i didnt like, but my husband didnt mind.
if you have extra bucks invest in Sol Melia across the street, it has a lot more to offer if you planning on staying longer. we were happy to check out, we didnt encounter any particular problems with anything, it just looks really outdated, the architecture looks very typically straight and simple, not too much beauty, they should make it an office building instead, perhaps.
food, drinks are not included
there is a disco adjacent to the hotel which seemed cubanly okay, considering that you are not on the resort filled with tourists rather in the regular hotel in middle of the big city, get a bottle and get drunk the music is very fast and hot and so are the cubans, but please dont dress too overly provocative or they will think you are one of the local prostitute. there are many male prostitutes as well. i would wanna go there alone or i can easily see id get "attacted".
there is just a street view from your room, not too romantic, but the sun and the heat is sure to make up for it.
