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.
Loved the hotel and staff. We were treated like royalty and will definitely return. The restaurants were all great, especially the Japanese one which puts on a bit of a show. The managing director was always making sure we were happy, exceptional service.
Just returned from an amazing stay at the Melia. The location is the most perfect being situated adjacent to a most beautiful beach. The sea is a beautiful deep blue colour and is really clear. It has the choice of five different pools all with adequate sun beds and all close to a bar. Plenty of eating options with different restaurants in the evening all with high quality food and service. The buffet is open for all three meal times and offers a superb range of foods, something for everyone. Also there is a 24 hour bar which serves lighter snacks, found this really useful and often had a breakfast in there. Staff are mostly very good and friendly, the odd one has an attitude problem, but that's to be expected with so many. The room was very comfortable, slight decoration issues, but it didn't bother us. Wifi is only available in the lobby area and access is via a pre purchased card. This worked fine for me and actually enjoyed not being constantly controlled by my phone on holiday. It's very difficult to find a down side, but if I have one negative it would be the noise coming from the entertainment centre on the beach, a little too loud, but lots of people got involved so this view shared by all. I will definitely be returning as soon as I can and recommend a visit.
The food was really good and consistent (which is difficult to find in Cuba). European coffees were available and of good quality. There were lots of beach activities, but lots of room for silent sunbathing and reading as well. No one under 18 permitted, which was amazing!The staff were very helpful and friendly. Hotel was able to exchange money at the same rates as the bank so that was very convenient. Wifi was difficult to access except in the lobby and at the business center for a fee. Having said that, it's much better than most of Cuba. The resort is attached to a golf club which makes it very popular with golfers. A very high end clientele made it a very civilized place to stay. I will be back! It would be great for honeymooners, especially if you stay in the suites in bungalows next to the main hotel.Just one block away is a little mall with a pharmacy, bank, pub and local artisan shops. Perfect combination of amenities.
Beautiful resort, gorgeous beaches, amazing staff, clean rooms and delicious food! A group of girlfriends and I had the best time of our life in the beginning of July 2017 which was particularly due to Alain and Lazarito of the animation staff. Although the age demographic of the guests were a bit more mature for 5 young lively women, Alain, Lazarito along with servers like Dayron, Mykel and Louis made us feel at home and welcomed us with their bright smiles, sweet disposition and contagious energy daily. There is always something to do, see, eat or drink at this resort so myself and the girls were very satisfied with our overall experience. We are already raving about this resort to our friends and family and would love to come back in the near future!
The beaches here are absolutely beautiful. If you are a person who just sleeps in your room at night but spends the entire day and evening on the beach then this hotel is not bad. I give the beach a 5. Beautiful sand, no seaweed and not rocky. However, there rooms coming from the States should be rated as a 2.5. I stayed in a bungalow so it has a separate kitchen and living room from the bedroom. While spacious it is quite old. The beds are hard and can hurt your back, the bathrooms do not have a hairdryer and the walls are old. However, I will repeat if you spend your time on the beach then it's do-able just do not come with the expectation that you will receive 5 stars. By the way they do take American dollars. If you tip they will be your new best friend.
