This was our first visit to Cuba and we stayed at Melia Varadero for ten days in July, having spent four days in Havana. We honestly cannot fault the hotel; the staff are delightful - extremely friendly, attentive and efficient. A truly impressive variety of restaurants and food is always available and the activities are very well organised. The beach... More

The hotel's gardens and pool area are beautiful. Spacious rooms, friendly staff, delicious food, interesting activities organized in the hotel and at the beach. Negative: stained towels and the room wasn't cleaned properly every day (but that wasn't a problem)

Visited this resort with friends this past week and found it to be average at best. Comparing this hotel to my past stays at Tuxpan; Melia has the following frills that Tuxpan does not; fancy waterfall in the pool, massive resort, fancy lobby, prettier rooms etc. These things mean more to others than to me, I understand. Honestly, the only... More

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

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.

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.
