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.
Ok, so whilst you will read all the reviews about how many people travel to this hotel time and time again I will not be one of them.Like the other Virgin Holidays traveller we had VHols room and we also were offered an upgrade (payable of course) to a Bungalow, this turned out to be a mistake! The bungalow it self was very nice yet before long it was the centre of a building site which ended us asking to move rooms immediately as we did not feel particularly safe with bricks/stones bouncing off our patio doors after being thrown from the roof of the above building....there is definitly no Health and Safety here! That with debris all around the pool, doors being sanded down next to the day beds which end up covered in dust, and to top it off live power tools laying next to the pool! They were digging up around the pool and replacing with stone/concrete, but no need to worry about getting rid of the mud just let it drop in the pool it wont matter as the hotel is not full and no one will notice.....wrong!Anyway you probabaly get the picture so I wont go on, only to say that if that was not enough they then shut off a third of the buffet restaurant, yes you guessed it for renovation, causing queues for seats in the buffets and poor service as waiters could not keep up. Might of been easier to cope with if all the a la carte restaurants were all open....yes you guessed it one (italian) was closed for renovation!!Well the beach was nice and Alberto at the swim up bar made great Pina Coladas!Overall not the best hotel experience we could have wished for but many thanks to Virgin Rep Maureen who kept her cool amongst the number of complaints she was dealing with....well done Maureen and thank you for being there to sort.The hotel has some good qualities, lovely beach, good golf, and location so it not all negative and I would like to think we were unlucky with our timing but we will never know!
This is the best place to holiday the hotel is the best, the staff are the best, the golf course is great and the food is always amazing. We have been to this amazing place at least six times and it never fails to an amazing holiday. Can't wait for next year.
When we first got to the hotel was offered an upgrade (payable), after seeing our room I could see why, it was bad so we upgraded to a fantastic bungalow. So can I say to virgin holidays that the virgin hols special room is a standard room according to the hotel.Having got that out the way most of the holiday was excellent , plenty of room on a stunning beach.Food was as most others said average but the additional restaurants are certainly worth going to. Plenty of entertainment day and night and the barbecue on the beach as cuban day entertainment capped it off.Most staff are pleasent and do a good job.They are carrying out modernisation of certain parts of the hole
service is improveable. food okay. beach very nice!!water activities were all time closed during our stay end of august. we had difficulties with checkin with somehow impolite staff then. price is high and value for it is low as the rooms are used up. however the hotel tries to fix things and do some cosmetic improvements.we stayed in a junior sweet: bath tub was broken, windows did not close properly. the theme restaurants were very nice. only the japanese restaurant menue show was not worth seeing also not the asian food. on the other hand the sushi bar was nice with a great cuban guy preparing the sushi :)
Melia Las Americas is a beautiful resort with beautiful spacious rooms( we had an amazing seaview room). Very well maintained, clean beach and not crowded at all, if you are looking for a quiet place (adult only policy is a plus), however not too many young people.The only thing that must be improved is the food, which definitely is not 5 stars. Another problem that we have faced was the fact that our credit card was declined, even though it wasn't an U.S. credit card and was the same card that we used to book the hotel in the first place( so... bring some extra cash, just to be on the safe side).The staff on the other hand was lovely, doing their best to make us feel welcomed.
