I and my family have just returned from a two centre holiday in Cuba. August 2012. We spent 3 nights at the Melia Cohiba and 11 nights in the Sol Cayo Guillermo (see separate review). This hotel was much better than I had expected. When we arrive we were pleasantly suprised to find that because we were staying in the Sol Cayo Guillermo, a sister hotel, that we had been upgraded to a suite. This was very spacious and comfortable. We did eat in the hotel the first night, the food was quite good, though expensive for Cuba. We ate out in the city the next two nights. The hotel is a little out of the centre, though it does have a shuttle bus. A taxi costs about 6 CUCs. On arrival we were told that you could walk in to town in around 25 mins, more like 1hr 20mins. Would I recommend this hotel yes I would.
