Went to Cuba for first time....one week in Melia Varadero. This was the first exotic vacation I have had in over 30 years. I would highly recommend any English speaking tourist to learn Spanish before going to Cuba. We felt marginalized when we ate at the Trinidad restaurant beside the pool. When we tried to order the same as the... More

There are good and bad points relating to this hotel. Check in was quick and friendly. Lobby is impressive. Room was well appointed, nice bathroom, kettle, TV etc. The air con leaked but no big deal. A fuse blew within an hour of my arrival but was fixed by maintenance in no time. A bottle of water in the mini... More

Brought my family to Cuba for the first time. The resort have exceeded our expectations. The service was impeccable and there were abundance of food and variety to choose from. Love the fresh and tasty seafood. We thoroughly enjoyed the meals in the restaurant with live quartet music. Proximity to the beach was a plus and the beach was beautiful... More

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

We ve stayed here over 10 times in the last 4 years. Overall we have had a great time. The management, particularly the Spanish boss,and staff ,are very attentive and there is always something to do.

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
