          Is this resort closed? The email address on the Melia website bounces back with address not found. If you call the number on their website you get a spanish language message saying the number is out of service. If you call the central reservation number on their website they claim there is a black hole around Cuba and they nothing about what is going on in Cuba.

          I see below that it takes about 90 minutes to get from the hotel to the airport at Santa Clara. A few questions 1) Does the hotel provide this service or do we need to arrange ourselves? 2) What is the cost? 3) What is the schedule on Sundays?
