A bit old fashioned but in a good way. Right in the middle of town, nice pool area (though we didn't use the pool) room was large and everything worked, internet in reception (a big plus in Cuba) and breakfast in the dining room was good.

LaUnion, built in 1869 but up to date, was fabulous with its beauty, charm, ambiance, and the rooftop bar! My room was huge and very nice. Staff was great and most spoke English (Sadly, no Spanish skills on my part).The rooftop has a bar that serves food and had a most wonderful

Hotel is a grand restored peach. Pool is nice. Rooms are a bit of a shambles. Hot water optional, shower curtain kept falling down, some power points didn't work. You get the picture? Oh, and lift didn't work either. Breakfast room is nice

Dear customer, thank you for sharing your experiences. First of all, we'd like you to know that we regret the inconveniences that affected your stay at our hotel; The Meliá Group has designed a very serious project to raise the quality standards in both service and the attention to our visitors. Certainly we have presented problems with the elevator due to the irregularity in the general electrical voltage. We really appreciate your comments for they help us to anticipate situations, so they will not happen again in the future. Thank you once again and have an excellent weekend!

Hola! Me parece que lo que pasaba era un mantenimiento sencillo, me dijeram que la piscina estaria arreglada en poco tiempo. Todavia, creo que sea oportuno hablar con el hotel.

Anyone visiting Cienfuegos from Toronto in February 2018?
No - but visited in November. Definitely the best place on our entire trip to Cuba - enjoy

Yes. It's an external lift, with a glass front, that overlooks the 'blue' inner courtyard. It certainly should be big enough for a wheelchair.

Hi. What would you recommend as more immediate things to do if staying for one night at this hotel? Cheers
Just round the corner from the hotel is the main square- Parque et Plaza Jose Marti. Have a stroll around and go into Teatro Tomas Terry - you'll have to pay but I think it's worth it. It was built in the 19th century and is still used. Then there's the cathedral and other important buildings beautifully restored. You can also walk to the harbour or take a horse drawn carriage. There may be small market stalls down the streets towards the harbour. You can get a taxi to the Palacio de Valle, a beautiful restaurant and if you'd only like a drink, go up to the rooftop bar for fantastic views of the sea. The Palacio is a fine example of Moorish architecture and it's very beautiful. That's probably enough. Make sure you swim in the La Union hotel pool and have a cocktail from the poolside bar.

"I had a room that was just above the street. Not bad noise, but there may be more quiet rooms elsewhere."
"all of them are good"
"Try to get an interior-facing room (but you may also be disturbed by a fountain all night)"
"Ask for a room dat is not in front of the hotel. Lots of noise and smell there."
"Ask for a quiet room"
