Melia Las Americas
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Melia las Americas is a great resort for couples who are looking for a luxurious resort getaway in Varadero. Plenty of food options to choose from with regards to buffet items. The a la cartes are fairly decent as well. The staff are amazing. They go out of their way to ensure that all of your concerns and needs are accommodated. The beach is always the best element of the resort. It stretches out for miles and you'll never have an issue reserving a lounger. This is a resort more suited for older clientele and couples who are wanting a quieter and more relaxing resort experience. There is very little night life here.
Location: Beachfront, 25 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes to Varadero.
Had a 3 day stay at this location and it was paradise!!! It is centrally located on Varadero and next door to the plaza where you can buy the items you may have left at home. While at one of the bars inside the hotel, I met a bartender named Wilfredo Valenzuela. This guy is the best! The Cuban staff are sometimes a little too quiet;but Wilfredo was very friendly and a great example of how to make a visitor feel like family. I highly recommend staying at this hotel and make sure you visit my new friend Wilfredo, he makes a great drink!!!
Melia las Americas is for us the best all inclusive hotel to relax and be pampered in Varadero. The view, the food, the proximity of the beach to the main hotel, the clean sand, the entertainment and the staff that works there makes us return back as this is our cherished hotel. It is a very clean resort, the room we stayed in had an incredible view, the main lobby has internet & evening entertainment that is very entertaining and impressive. The buffet has so much variety & the food is delicious & fresh. I know that Cuba has not the reputation of having good food, but Melia Las Americas is the exception. The staff is wonderful. As reference, Customer Service & Quality Manager is very efficient, friendly, quickly taking care of issues with her staff, making sure the guests are happy. She has the guests' satisfaction at heart and does all of this with a beautiful & sincere smile. She manages her staff so they offer the same good service to the guest. The head Chef is very attentive. He was informed by the Customer Service & Quality manager that my husband is gluten intolerant and he made sure that his team had gluten free pasta for him, and during our stay was always making a detour to validate with us if all was ok. This is what we call great service! The General manager is very involved with the guests to ensure their satisfaction and he is very friendly. In the past we visited other hotels in Varadero, but this hotel is the best and only one for our needs. Don't hesitate to visit them, you will have a great vacation.
We stayed in Melia Las Americas in July, beautiful resort and the beach is clean, water is crystal clear.Room: Tired but very clean. If money is no issue book the renovated bungalow - beautifully designed. They offer a special for upgrade during our stay, the only reason we didn't take up the offer is the distance to the lobby. Its a bit too far with the summer heat.Elizabeth at the reception was so helpful and patient in showing us the bungalows and sea-view rooms.Food:Food at buffet was good, I esp like the grill section, where u choose the fresh meat and fish for BBQ/grill.Speciality RestaurantTeppanyakiTerrible food.Sushi - dry and no tasteTeppanyaki - basically the so call chef, stir fried very small pieces of beef, chicken and shrimp together and served on the plate with fried rice.Fried rice was tasteless and meats were over cooked. They should do like the grill section in the Buffet - grill meat and fish individually to maintain the freshness.DrinksLots of choice of cocktails. Margaritas and mojitos my favouriteWifiOnly available in the lobby by purchasing a card for 1.50 CUC an hour.With 5cuc for the day, you can take a hop on bus to town.Overall a very nice stay.
This was our fourth visit to Melia Las Americas (MLA). As per usual we certainly enjoyed our visit. As mentioned in previous reviews, the friendly nature of the people is one of the top reasons Cuba is our top holiday destination.The beach is amazing and is one of the main reasons why we keep coming back to MLA. It was also nice to see our friends Roberto and Lirienna again and catch-up on the past year.Our Maid Maria Isabelle did a remarkable job of keeping our room tidy and clean. Her pleasant temperament was also appreciated.The Buffett once again offered a variety of offerings. We were disappointed that very little sushi was offered. In the past the sushi chef was present several nights however we did not see him in the 10 nights we were there.The a la carte restaurants did not disappoint. The Japanese and the Arcadia were our favourites.As mentioned in one of our previous reviews we love the night time shows. However we have to say once again that have become somewhat repetitive. I can't believe that they have some of the exact same shows we seen 4 years ago. Its time to change it up guys.One of the aspects about the shows that we don't want to change is the excellent service we received from Castro the amazing waiter at the theatre.In summary we love Cuba and we love MLA. The people and the place are amazing. We however will not be returning to MLA in the near future. The repetitive nature of the shows, which add so much to the night life of this resort, has resulted in us choosing another resort for our next visit.
I gave just returned from my trip to Cuba and i am eager to give my impressions concerning my stay at Melia Las Americas hotel, Baradero. As a matter of fact I have enjoyed it very much. The sea is warm and pure and you have a lot of sunbeds and parasols at your free disposition. The beach is not crowded clean and you can do jogging you wish. The cuisine is perfect and I have already given my compliments to the chef of La Arcada. I also want to thank my chambermaid Miss Maria Isabel. She managed to do her modest work perfectly and not to disturb my writing on a small book on my speciality. I can recommended Melia Las Americas hotel to everybody who looks for a peasfull and comfortable place where one can rest, play sports at day time and at evening hear real music including Verdi and Shopen. Although someone who can do with usual musical trash can revel in it in lots of bars))) Professor, Doctor of science V.Kapalin
