Sitting right on the ocean, Meliá Habana has spectacular views of the bright blue sea. There’s no beach here, but no need — the spectacular pool beckons.
Meliá Habana has the biggest pool of all of Havana’s city hotels — it looks like a river meandering through the palm trees. Part of it flows under the main building, so you’ll have no fear of sunburn while enjoying its cooling waters. Around the hotel’s three pools and lush gardens, there’s plenty of space to work on your tan too.
The hotel’s 397 rooms are well equipped and have large balconies, many with views of the sea. All rooms come with wifi (free for The Level) as well a minibar restocked daily. Junior suites and suites have hydromassage tubs too. As with other Meliá hotels, The Level has even nicer space with special extras, better views and extra services such as a private restaurant and free 24-hour room service.
Meliá Habana has an abundance of places to sit back and relax. A sports bar and cigar bar cater to specific interests, and the lobby bar has light snacks and drinks under its flying red heart airplane decorations. You can choose to dine at several restaurants including the Miramar for breakfast, lunch and dinner, La Scala for Italian, La Bella Cubana for Asian fusion, and Vadado for The Level guests. El Cobo, at the pool, is perfect if you don’t want to change out of your bathing suit. And no matter when you’re hungry, you’ll find à la carte snacks and a grill at the 24-hour Bosque Habana.
If you’re coming to Havana with kids, Meliá Habana is a few metres from the National Aquarium and a short distance to the Trompoloco Circus and La Isla del Coco children’s fun park.
Stays include free shuttles to Old Havana, a UNESCO world heritage site, throughout the day and evening.
