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.
My wife and myself, visited the MELIA LAS ANTILLAS from June 3rd to June 9th.Our room was spacious, clean and had an amazing View. Our stay was made even better by Elizabeth and Mailyn at the Concierge service who went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. There was a great variety of food items at the Buffet. The A la carte Restaurants, The Romantica and Canuco were really Good.The Cuban style of cooking is very blend, but the ingridients that are used were Really tasty and fresh ( organic)such as eggs, pork, beef, chicken and the seafood.We recommend ,if you want to enjoy your meals take with you some Sauces,Spices and condiments. At the Buffet the staff were amazingly friendly, Maribel, Yitzy and Javier went out of their way to make us enjoy our meals and accommodate our needs.At the Romantico, Yudith stood out, she was friendly and works hard to make everyone have an exceptional experience at the Restaurant. Raul at the pool bar was very nice too.Just as a TIP we recommend to carry a medical emergency kit, as just the Doctors Consultation Fee is very High. All in all we had an EXCELLENT week at the MELIA LAS ANTILLAS. WOULD WE VISIT AGAIN ? DEFINITELY YESWOULD WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE HOTEL AND ITS STAFF? A DEFINITE YES.
I travelled to Melia Las Antillas with my boyfriend and we had a nice time. The resort is about 40 mins from the airport. The check in was fast and we were greeted with nice drinks. We had a deluxe room and it was nice and spacious. The bathroom was clean but a little on the old side. The best part was the beach and the pool. They were very nice!As for the food, we were left a little disappointed. The À la carte restaurants were the most disappointing as the food was bland and the chicken was very dry. However, the staff at these restaurants was very friendly! As for the buffet, the food was ok but it was getting a bit repetitive by the end of the week.Overall, if you are looking for a resort at a good price with nice beaches and aren't expecting amazing food, this is a good option!
Spent a week here in May and would highly recommend it. Very friendly staff, plenty of variety and selection in the buffet and an adequate amount of bars/bartenders. Thanks for a great week. Special shoutout to the staff member named Ramon...he went above and beyond to make our stay exceptional.
My husband and I had a wonderful time at your resort. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with a glass of bubbly which was much appreciated after a 9 hour flight. We were taken to our room which unfortunately wasn't what we had booked but we explained this to the porter and were moved straight away to one of the "bungalows" which was just right. Kandy had arranged for a bottle of bubbly and flowers as our trip was for our anniversary which was a lovely touch. We were invited for cocktails at the gazebo which was provided for honeymooners/anniversaries were made to feel extra special as we were the only guests there so felt like we we're being privately serenaded (although looking back at the video that was taken we look rather embarrassed). Beach has the softest sand I have walked on and the sea was fantastic.Sharks were a definite plus and watching them eat was fascinating, also spotted the tiny hummingbirds which something we were hoping to see.Food is as has been described many times fairly bland, no spice/seasoning but was edible.Entertainment got a bit samey after the first week but the pina coladas helped us through it.I really must say though a huge thank you to both Yuniel and Eteri who really made this holiday for us. They really went above and beyond to make our stay special and it was really appreciated. Can't wait to come back again just wish it wasn't so far away.
We had a great time at this hotel. It has everything you need and our room on the 5th floor had a great view. Service everywhere was great and paying a little extra to get the concierge service on the 5th floor was well worth it. The only slight negative was that certain nationalities had towels on beds on the beach by 5am on a morning even though some didn't turn up until lunch time. It didn't effect us much but I would suggest the hotel enforces their rule of no reserving beds with towels. That was a slight hiccup because everything else was great. Facilities, entertainment, location, service all great. Would def go back.
