Melia San Carlos is a refurbished hotel right in the centre of Cienfuegos, Cuba's Pearl of the South.

Just a few minutes' stroll from the central square in Cienfuegos, the totally refurbished Melia San Carlos, which was originally established in 1925, opened its doors in the summer of 2018 with spanking new contemporary furnishings.  The hotel has a brilliant location in an elegant city whose eclectic style refers back to its French origins – step outside and discover art deco façades of a city justifiably known as the Pearl of the South.

Unusually for this Caribbean island full of colour, the décor is mostly white, silver, chocolate and black, but some features from the original building remain, such as the ornate façade and layout of the lobby to which a restaurant, bar and two inner courtyards have been added. The bright-white air-conditioned guest rooms are similarly innovative, with up-to-date bathrooms. They have views over the city as does the celebrated roof garden with its friendly bar and restaurant overlooking the bay
