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.
room bath tub had chips out of enamel,very outdated, older property of course..pool grounds very nice , food well its cuba..... cuban peso????well i could buy u.s dollars cheaper,, 300.00 canadian gave us 205.00 pesos,,,,hotel lobby personal very good, just about 4 bar service people were ok, buffet staff mostly ignored people..
My husband and I stayed in this hotel in October 2017 I asked the travel agent not to put us in a senior home as this is the adults only resort she assured me it will not be like that. Average age 50+ :( There is absolutely no difference between this hotel and Sol Sirenas Coral 3 star hotel down the road. Actually there is Sol Sirenas has way better entertainment but it doesn't have the pond with the sharks WOW!!!The highlight of this hotel is the a la cart restaurant the chef was amazing the food was delicious and he Oliver is an amazing person. He offered to make a cake for me after dinner to celebrate my birthday!!! Food was fine in the buffet a lot of variety you do know this is Cuba and they have VERY limited resources so please don't expect miracles. If you want to rent a car do that in advance because there is shortage of cars to rent in Cuba!Overall ok hotel to stay at if you want to relax.
Stayed Oct 29-Nov 5.We booked Junior Suite Oceanview Concierge. Worth the extra money. Our concierge Liz was amazing! She took care of all our needs and was a pleasure to talk to. Room was large and always kept clean. Only complaint was the water pressure was terrible. had showers at different times but still not good. Still damage from the hurricane but was being worked on.Food: Only 2 rest open when we were there but 1 more was opening when we left. Food was fine with lots to chose from. I have the same complaint as many others and that is the buffet food is at best "luke warm". Not sure why they can't keep it hot? There is an outside grill on the way to the beach with hot food that is quite good. One server named Raul was amazing! Hardest and fastest server I've seen yet. Management take note of this guy, he is by far your best worker!Pool: Pool was large and clean with pool bar ( no swim up). Staff was friendly and drinks were fine. Beach: The beach is awesome! Beautiful white sand beach that stretches for miles.All in all a great trip. I will return someday and would recommend this resort. Thank you Staff and management for a wonderful Cuban holiday!
First visit to Varadero, due to the damage done by hurricane Irma to our usual stay in Melia Cayo Coco.Melia Las Antillas is very dated, but it is also a very clean hotel thanks to its friendly and hard working staff.The buffet is repetitive and the food lacks flavour, but you won't starve, there is always something to eat. Have a good breakfast, and snack on something at the beach grill for lunch. The buffet area is clean and the staff is tentative. The beach is beautiful but I only have one gripe which is not the hotels fault but I think they should not allow it.Some tourists on the beach take two chairs they use one to lie down on and the other one is stood up and it is used for shade. The problem with that is shortage of chairs, and they block the view of the beach. We stayed on the 5th floor concierge suite and the view from our room was nice. Thanks to all the staff that made our stay a pleasant one.Shout out to Thomas, Alain, and Diana, also our great concierge Elizabeth and Mayleen and the rest of the wonderfull staff.
We just got back November 4 2017We only fly with sun wing, flights are always on time if not earlier plus great service.Lots of perks when u fly with sunwing! Nothing for vegans , had only carrots with cheese, or string beans with butter, also boiled potatoes with loads of butter.I made my self a sub but there was only cucumber onions black olives and pickles.Dinner was pasta with beans deserts were good.Everything was warm to cold, but I used the grill to reheat my potatoes which worked great! The French frys were kept In This dome thing that made them wet and soggy, may be they well change that once the manager sees these post complaining about th food? Which they have not yet! But keep saying they will.There bread is always good. Top notch waitresses and staff.We were on the top floor very far room away from the elevator so quiet with a beautiful balcony and an amazing view.from our bed you could see the ocean!The conseiers were amazing I just loves those ladies! Liz and I for get the othe dark hair lady but wounderffull ppl.We will return ! but please consider improvements in the buffet
