It was sold to us as the best all inclusive resort in Varadero, but it was not. Overall buildings were old. So was the room furniture. It also wasn't particularly clean. Lots of dust. We asked for a double bed but the room was so small both beds were exactly next to each other. The a/c did not work. We... More

It is fair to note that the situation in Cuba does not help to provide top notch buildings, or an up to date maintenance, so since you arrive in Cuba you see everything from another perspective. Service Service in general was all right, but I had one main issue. Sometimes I felt like they do not care about having a... More

Advised by my travel agent, Claudia Suarez del Real, and recommended by some friends, I spent the first week of July at the MELIA LAS AMERICAS GOLF AND BEACH RESORT in Varadero, Cuba. It turned to be the best vacation I had in a long time. Located at one of the most beautiful white sand beaches, Melia Las Americas has... More

This resort is one of the best beach front hotels by far! You are less than 5 min away from the beach ... literally just a few steps away Beautiful view of the beach from their superior ocean view room. My husband and I could sit there tanning for hours watching the beautiful sunrise and sunsets. Food - Delicious! The... More

I highly recommend this hotel as a place to stay in Varadero. The staff was polite, helpful and friendly. The food was good. They provide lots of things especially for foreigners, such as foods, shampoo and other toiletries in the room, and some limited drugstore items in the shop (all of which must be imported). The rooms were clean and... More

Let me start by saying my family and I travel twice per year to the Caribbean on all inclusive vacations. When we saw a 5 star resort in Varadero we immediately booked it. Imagine my dismay to see a resort in such disrepair!! Stagnant green pools of water surrounding the buffet dining room, no air conditioning in the lobby, flys... More

This was my families first time to Cuba and I have to say that we were so fortunate to have picked the Melia Varadero. The resort itself, on the outside and in the main areas is breathtaking. They do an excellent job keeping everything pristine and beautiful. The rooms are not modern, but we didn't want modern, we wanted to... More

We moved from a nearby hotel to the Melia Varadero. Pleasant atmosphere, beautiful interior and good rooms if you get a newly refurbished room. The air-conditioning is not as good as it should/could be, however, you get used to it after a couple of days. The piano bar is a lovely place to sit (inside or outside) to enjoy a... More
