For a five star level , we expected more. As we have both been to Cuba before, we were both not impressed with this resort. Food was cold even after sitting under the lamps. A power failure which lasted 3 hours. Maintenance did not check the elevators for people until after 45 mins in .Management never explained the reason or... More

There are many areas around the property that provide various vistas and privacy.There were always musicians in the circular lobby or outside the pool area Can't say enough about the... More

We decided early on to upgrade to the Oceanview suite on the Level here as the cost of transfers to and from airport were included as well as free Internet and we did not pay much more for the upgrade!

My family attended a wedding at the Melia, and I think we had a bad week, as usually I am in agreement with TripAdvisor reviews, which... More

My husband and I stayed at the Melia Varadero March 2014. We had such a wonderful time and we're going back on Monday. It was our first trip and we had such a wonderful time. The rooms were nice, food was eatable, drinks were delicious and the service was great. We can't wait, see you then :-)
