The Melia Varadero is a really great choice for those looking for a luxurious stay in Varadero. The food choices in this resort is fresh and better in quality than what you'd usually experience in some resorts in Cuba. Really great a la carte restaurants to choose from. Make sure to make a reservation at the steakhouse! The staff is what makes the resort great. They always tailor their services to each and every guest and always remember names. The attentive and personable nature of the resort team is what keeps guests returning. While the resort does appear to be a little dated, the constant maintenance and renovations, ensures that the Melia is making strides to improve the experience of the resort.
Location: Access to 2 beautiful beaches, just a 5 minute walk to Las Americas Shopping Centre, 10 minute drive to downtown Varadero, and 30 minutes from the airport.
My 6 year old son Adam had a great time at the hotel's kid's club! Highlights included pirate day where he got to dress up like a pirate and tour the resort including the beach, the magic show, mini disco, and face painting. The staff at the kid's club were amazing - so warm and super friendly! Adam was treated like a prince by them all. He was excited to go everyday for a few hours and that gave my partner and me some time to enjoy activities that he wouldn't have been interested in or was too young for such as snorkeling! Big thanks to the kid's club staff for making it an unforgettable trip for Adam!
We booked through our travel agent, an all inclusive package flying with Air Transat.The hotel is rather old but well maintained. The service was good except for one restaurant " Guantanamera" which claimed to be 24 hours resto but did not have san dwich at 7 am. The hotel allows you to book specialty restaurant at no extra charge and they were pretty good.. The most of the 3 specialty restaurant is Fuertaventura. I can recommend people to stay at this hotel
This was the first time in 5 years that we had to stay at a different resort in varadero cuba because of the hurricane. Staying at the Melia Varadero on the level was excellent. The staff on the level are amazing thank you very much for everything. The beach is beautiful and thank you Humberto Reyes for being such a caring person and taking such good care of us on the beach your the greatest. The bar piscine at the pool was the greatest time Yanta Osmany Tony Carlos Eva Lidia are the greatest people. They really do care and take great care of you. Hats off to all of them. The food was great the entertainment was good the A LaCarte restaurants hadf good food. The view on the level was excellent. The only thing I wish the room on the level had was a coffee maker in the room. We like to get up early and sit and watch the ocean from our room coffee maker would been really nice at 5 in the morning. We would recommend the Melia Varadero. If we are going to stay there next year we really don't know. For 4 years we stayed at the Melia Peninsula now we are not sure which resort we will stay at in November 2018 for trip number 6 to cuba we love cuba it is the most beautiful places to visit and the Cuban people the greatest. Thanks again for the excellent care you gave us.
Breathtaking lobby/reception - see for yourself. Very friendly & efficient staff at reception who also do currency exchange. The rooms and staff were top notch, Also have coffee/tea making facilities with good bathroom. Great entertainment day and night inside and outside at pool and also on beach with its own bar. Booking for the ala Carte restaurants is recommended. We were all inclusive by the way. I would highly recommend.
Enjoyed everything. The service was excellent. The staff was friendly. Enjoyed the music playing through out the hotel. Everything was kept clean. I cannot think of a negative thing to say about my stay at this hotel.
