    They have a small variety type store by the lobby. Probably have some cigars. Alternatively take a free shuttle to the Melia Cayo santa Maria or las Dunas, there are more shops there.

    They automatically upgrade your room $400. 10 x $20 = $200, drink vouchers, used to purchase wine bottles. 4 x $50 vouchers for special dinners. Remainder of vouchers on spa.
