Melia Las Antillas
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Melia las Antillas is another part of the family of Melia resorts that are situated amongst the Varadero strip. Though the resort itself is still relatively new (it's only 13 years old), it is in need of an upgrade, as there are some areas that look run-down. The staff however, makes sure that the grounds are as clean and aesthetically pleasing as possible. The food choices here vary. The a la carte items are not that great. However, the buffet food items are pretty solid. They change food items regularly, so there are plenty to choose from. The staff at the resort are amazing. Not only do they ensure you're getting the most out of your stay. The entertainment team are amazing as well. They keep you entertained.
Location: Beachfront, 40 minutes from Juan Gualberto Gomez International Airport, 10 minutes to Varadero.
The hotel does show its 17 years but the food was the best I have ever had in Cuba. The staff were busy getting everything fixed up for the high season and to repair the damage from Irma. In saying that they did have the best coverage for shade at the beach. You had to get up early to reserve a palapa at the beach and shade at the pool. The hotel staff were laid back compared to hotels in Cayo Santa Maria - but that was just fine with me.Pool - no swim up bar - less pee in the pool was my thought.Room -we were in 6715 - close to the beach and pool. It could use a new mattress and bigger dresser but was big enough.
We are returning to Cuba for the fourth time in December. Staying at melia las antillas. Have stayed there three times already. Love the resort and the staff. Made us feel at home. Service was excellent and the food was fantastic. Always go down for new years. Great way to bring in a new year. Made lots of friends and can't wait to go back. 🍸 Wayne and Edith Ahola
I stayed at this hotel two weeks after Hurricane Irma, and the staff are to be commended in providing a comfortable and safe environment. I enjoyed a quiet week of rest and sun. The staff are all super friendly, professional, accommodating. However, I have been traveling to Cuba for over 20 years and have stayed in everything from 1.5 star to 5 star hotels. Las Antillas might have been a 4.5 -star at some point, but not for a very, very long time. If you compare it with other 4-star hotels, such as the Iberostar Hotels (go to visit Laguna Azul for comparison - Las Antillas doesn't hold up at all). The resort needs a complete overhaul to make it close to the 4.5 star that Sunwing claims it to be. I would put this at closer to a 2.5 star resort in Cuba, and that is what Las Antillas should be rated at to be fair to visitors. From the lobby to the restaurants, to the rooms and the entertainment and entertainment areas - they all need updating and redoing. I am not referring to anything that was damaged by the hurricane - it was obvious what it was like beforehand. I still had a good week, but not the 4.5 star experience I had paid for. In short - staff lovely, rooms clean, but resort very tired, old, worn down. If I had paid $400-$500 less, I would not have been disappointed, but I didn't, and I was.
Just came back from the MLA for the 7th times and had amazing vacation once again. Even after the hurricane the resort looks very nice and and clean. Don't hesitate to go.The staff at the reception are always there to answer your questions for what ever you need. The check in was very fast. We had a room on the 5th floor with concierge service. Maylin and Elizabeth that work there are very nice. Thank you for the very good service and the little talk we had together.The room was very nice and clean with ocean view. I found the bed very comfortable.And the most I like, it is an adult no kids.The lobby bar where you can go to have a very good coffee in morning, a drink before dinner and music show at night. Ramon, Claudia (my daughter) and Roberto (mojito man). Thank you for your good work and your smile.The buffet, you can always find something to eat. There is a BBQ outside where you can have your meat or fish cook direct there. Special thanks to Tomas, Ayleem, Inelsys, Kiki, Javier, for your service and your smile. Really miss you.The pool bar you can have very good drink served by Meiledys, Lachy, Tatiana, Orlando, Raul, Juanz. You all do you a fantastic job.The animation WOW. Teresa, Eteri, Yaniel, Capuccino. We had a very good time together. Keep you good job.Enrike the pool/beach man. He always take time to have a talk with us and gives us a little Spanish lesson.The beach bar, we like going there to relax after the beach. All the guys that works there are amazing.The BBQ close to the beach they serve very good hamburger cook by Norberto. He is a very nice man.The beach is the best one. You can walk miles from one way or the other.We went to the Dolphin show and swim close to the MLA about 10 minutes walk. You have to go that is a very good experience. There is so many things I would like to write but I will take me for ever. Already plan my next vacation there and soon.To finish with a very special thank you to Mr. Raul Testar that made these vacations exceptionnel. Miss you all already.See you soon, Anne and Pierre
