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.
5 star all way , rooms were clean and modern, food was delicious and fresh, Top notch entertainment staff, while preforming or socializing by the pool , Teresa and Eterie always made for a fun, laughter filled afternoon and made you feel part of the family , definite plans to make this a go to location in Varadero, not to big as to be able to get to parts of the resort quickly, but yet big enough to not feel crowded with endless activities
I spent the weekend at the Melia Las Antilles. I was surprised at how dated the property was. It really needs some work. The rooms are ok, very clean, although the mattresses are incredibly hard. The food was ok, and there was plenty of it. The grounds are beautiful, and the beach spectacular.
I travelled to Varadero on a Sunwing vacation with a group in November. This is a great time to visit Cuba. We immediately went to the ocean after arriving at the resort. Varadero has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I was able to go kayaking the first day as the waves weren't too strong. The water is clean and they also have a nice bar located close to the beach. There was also a White Party on the patio while we were there which was a lot of fun. The food was good especially the fresh omelettes, stirfry and grilled foods. The cheesecake at the buffet was the group's favourite dessert. We also enjoyed excellent lobster at the International restaurant and pizza at the Italian restaurant. If I were to go back I would bring some warmer clothes for the evenings as it does get cold and the restaurants are air conditioned.
I have been to this resort 3 times. And I am going back for my 4th in January. The staff here is absolutely amazing. The entertainment staff make the trip so enjoyable. They are so friendly and fun. My favourites are Eteri, Teresa, Alejandro and Chino. They are genuinely kind and caring people and want to make sure you have an amazing time! On my third time here, I was sad to see that they had cut the evening shows from 6 down to 3. Don't get me wrong, there is always something happening at night, however, the dance group is only there 3 nights to entertain you under the direction of the amazing Lucy! 2 of my favourite and most outstanding dancers are Vismany and Yula! The front desk staff is always so kind and accommodating. I had friends join me the 2nd week I was there and Alexandra was kind enough to arrange that their room was as close as possible to mine. The food service staff is also great. The quality of the food is also quite good. They always made our dining experience so much fun. Always serving us in a timely manner as well as laughing and having a good time, cracking jokes with us. Maribel is one of the best they have there. Moving onto the bar staff, Tatiana, Lechy, Miseildys, and Jorge all are amazing. Our room was great! We had one of the bungalows and I always get the same one thanks to the help of the wonderful staff. Its super close to the beach, pool and main building. Every time I venture back, I send an email out to one of the staff and they make sure I have, if not the exact same room, 1 as close as possible to it. They are cleaned daily by the wonderful maids. Lastly, the management is also great. Carlos is always saying hello and making sure we are having an amazing time! This is a resort you must go see. I can genuinely say I have made wonderful friendships with some of the staff here. Melia Las Antillas is my home away from home. I can not wait to see them all in January! Hasta en enero mi amigos!
Giving melia a thumbs up for staff..right from the first day with Kandasami taking care of us to Ray the chef. .life guards Jose and Michael Angelo and bartenders Gylermo and Uneski..they all made our stay amazing. The rooms are very clean and quite large (maybe a little better lighting above sink area for makeup touch-ups) happy we had read reviews ahead so we knew we needed an adaptor as plug ins are 220 volt. Beach absolutely breathtaking. Not sure why people say Cuban food has no flavor?? Ray is an amazing chef and his dishes were so tasty. We've traveled alot all over the world and were very pleased with the buffet. Thanks for a great experience and see you all next year
