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.
I couldn't recommend this hotel any higher! My partner and I loved every minute of our two weeks here. Beautiful beach and pool areas, enough bars and restaurants to keep you busy (Sakura is great & La Arcada was amazing). The staff are helpful & friendly. Room was cleaned daily & fresh towels left (beach towels can be exchanged often as you want at the beach). Money exchange is easy to do. Entertainment was good, always something going on. Always sunloungers available at the pools but to get them on the beach don't go down too late! We will defiantly be back, we can see how lots of the people we met were repeat visitors.
Beautiful bach, beautiful country.It is a shame that the hotel recently opened and there are so many things that are not working properly.The tiles on the floor of the isle that our room was located were destroyed.The bath tub was too high, very difficult to get in and to get out without anywhere to hold on to.We are a family of two adults and a child and the room assigned to us had a huge clear glass window on the bathroom not proper for a family.Very poor customer service.The people from the reception were very rude and not able to solve problems.Our room did not have hot water and the air conditioning was very poor.The food was awful , the stakes were chewy and not able to eat.There was a variety of foods on the buffet but they were not labeled, the elaboration of the food was awful , salty and hard to eat.The price of the hotel is pretty expensive for the service and the quality of the hotel.i hope they improve the service and the maintenance of the hotel.
We arrived in Varadero having just spent a week exploring Havana, so we were looking forward to relaxing at Melia Las Americas and enjoying the facilities.The room we were given when we checked in was very small and a little tired. The view out over the golf course, surrounded by the sea on either side, was beautiful, almost making up for the size of the room, but the bed was so hard it was like laying on a concrete slab, so we both struggled to sleep the first night. Because of this, we upgraded to one of the bungalows, which was in a great location, close to the pool and only a few steps away from the beach. It had a really lovely balcony which got the sun all day. The bedroom and living room were spacious and it even had a walk-in wardrobe, although the bathroom in particular could have done with some modernisations.The beach was really beautiful, with white sand and turquoise sea. We never struggled to find a sun lounger on the beach or by all the various pools. The pool by the bungalows has a bar in it, so this was very convenient.We got speaking to a Canadian couple on our first night who had stayed at the resort a number of times and they advised us that it was better to order breakfast and lunch 'fresh' from La Robleza, La Cascada or the pool bar, instead of visiting the buffet. We tried this during our first few days, but a Cuban sandwich from La Cascada consisted of some scraggy pork, cabbage and cucumber, with no sauce at all or any of the other items listed on the menu. Club sandwiches, beef fajitas and burgers at the pool side snack bar were also fairly lacklustre and the breakfast at La Robleza, which took an hour to come, was verging on inedible. This was, without a doubt, the worst meal we were served during our stay, which is a real shame as the restaurant itself is in a great spot within the resort. On our fifth day we had our lunch at the buffet and what a pleasant surprise this was. Offering a wide range of food, from cold cuts of meat and various cheeses, to fresh cooked steaks and roast chicken. The evening meals at the a la carte restaurants were all fine but if you are wanting to choose from a menu then you should probably avoid La Robleza (BBQ) and Sakura (Japanese teppanyaki), as they have set menus, with two seatings per night. La Arcada is the best quality food but it just seems a little out of place in this hotel.Overall this resort was of a fairly good standard, and as far as its location is concerned it couldn’t be better. However, after spending an amazing week in Havana, it just felt a little bit of a let-down in comparison. What’s more, we found that unless you are tipping each and every time you receive any kind of service at the resort, you will not willingly receive any more. This is not how we understand tipping to work, so by the end of our holiday we found ourselves resenting doing it at all.
Melias Las America's in Varadero,Cuba is the place you want to visit if you just want to relax. They have great inertainment team, unbelievable talented Violinist. Helpful people at Lobby. Cristal clear room cleaners... Julia was in charge to clean my room, she surprise me every day with a flowers , she is very friendly...
I have been to the MLA over 20 times and will continue to return!Over the years I have seen many changes and many improvements, especially since Bernard took over, it just keeps getting better and better!I hear so many people say that the food in Cuba is not good. My response to them is always "you should have stayed at Melia Las Americas"! The food is fantastic! From the buffet to the a la cart restaurants, everything is always delicious! I personally like the international, amazing food, amazing service, and an incredible group of musicians playing some of the most beautiful classical music.The resort is clean and the staff work so hard to keep everyone happy. I have never met better people in my life, and consider them to be family. Their friendliness and enthusiasm is contagious!I prefer the bungalows, and enjoy the walk to and from. They are clean, spacious, very comfortable and quiet. 24 hour room service is offered, and there is a 24 hour bar with food and drinks. No need to ever go hungry or thirsty! There is nightly entertainment (check the schedule and times, or simply ask one of the amazing staff for details).The beach is stunning, with crystal clear water, lots of chairs and umbrellas are available, along with a beach bar, and activities.There are a number of pools to choose from, including a very quiet one towards the end of the bungalows.The location of this resort is perfect, and just a quick ride into town. There are markets, shops, restaurants and bars. If you enjoy the nightlife, there is lots to choose from in varadero. There is also a plaza next door to the resort, which is very convenient.In all, I have to say that I have stayed at other resorts in Cuba, and throughout the Caribbean and I have not returned. The melia las Americas will always be a repeat for me. Thanks to everyone who works so hard, whether it's the wonderful people at the front desk, the maids, the cooks, the bartenders, the restaurant servers, the animation team, the musicians, and management, thank you so much for so many incredible stays at MLA. You are the reason I continue to return, and continue to recommend this resort to my friends, family, clients and colleagues!Muchas gracias!
