Meliá re-opens Cuba hotels after Hurricane Irma

Meliá Cuba has begun reopening hotels affected by Hurricane Irma in the resorts of Cayo Santa María, Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo and Varadero.

The hotel group said the Cuban tourism authorities had offered “crucial support” to help repair damage from the category five hurricane, which devastated some areas in the north of the island including Jardines del Rey, Cayo Santa María and Varadero.

Meliá Cuba says it has had chance to make improvements during the closure of the hotels, to create new products for the upcoming high season.
