I have stayed at the Melia Varadeiro before. The food is sensational. The hotel is doing a fantastic job on the entertainment. There were a piano player, several bands throw-out the day... really a joy. Every restaurant had his own band playing. The staff is very kind and helpful. They make you feel so welcome. At the pool bar..... ALainne... More

My husband and I stayed here May 10-17, 2015. This was our 2nd trip to Varadero , first time staying at Melia Varadero. First let me say it's an older hotel and needs a bit of sprucing up- however we were going just for relaxing and it met our needs. FOOD- we always enjoyed the breakfast buffet there is something...

I stayed at the Melia Varadero May 9 - 16 2015 and loved it. My room was oceanview on the 4th floor and it was very nice, not the upgraded Loft but very nice just the same. I requested a quiet area and that is what I received. The staff are so friendly, the hotel is very clean and the... More

I booked a room on the Level, a suite with an ocean view. The room was beautiful but I had wanted a different type of room. I wish to book a room on the Level with an ocean view but with a SEPARATE living room and SEPARATE bedroom. Can anyone tell me what type of room to book. Bob Cooper

Our group of six stayed here for three nights at the end of a two week holiday in Cuba. The hotel provided what was on the label, a beach side location with (mostly) all inclusive food and drink. There is a reasonable array of restaurants quite apart from the main buffet. The rooms were good, We were on the fifth... More

The Melia Varadero is a lovely all-inclusive property on the beach. Some people say that Varadero is not the "real" Cuba. By that perhaps they mean that this is a tourist area and that is true. The hotel property is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. It is not close to things to see and is best if you... More

We spent 4 days here. Beautiful beach location with turquoise sea. Excellent water sports available at no extra charge. The hotel and rooms were really great. Clean, spacious and great views. Excellent choice of restaurants to eat and a wide ranging buffet if you don't want a la carte. Mostly all inclusive and the drinks were of good quality, although... More

This was our first time in Cuba and our second AI vacation. I cannot say enough about the hotel and especially the friendly staff. We had a premium oceanfront room that overlooked the beach as well as the pool. Our room was not one of the recently renovated rooms but it still was nice and clean (thanks Blouse!) with a... More

This was my 1st all inclusive trip with my spouse and I was very disappointed with our stay. CHECK IN/OUT: We were the only ones to check in and it was very curt, uninformative and not welcoming. Our flight home was delayed yet the hotel still let us use the hospitality room and sit in the lobby for hours before... More

I will divide this review into a few sections for easier reading: room, grounds, food/restaurants, beach, nightlife and service. Room: On our reservation we requested a room on a high floor with an ocean view and our request was fulfilled. We were on the fourth floor (4604) and it faced the ocean on the road side of the resort. If... More
