What a beautiful resort and experience. An all inclusive resort on the Atlantic Ocean. The rooms were well appointed. I found the beds to be a little European, boxy and not very forgiving. The beach and the pools were awesome. The staff was friendly and accomodating. Be sure to book a reservation when you arrive for the three select restaurants... More

My first visit to Cuba. Loved the beach, the food good, the room cleaned with a smile daily. Everyone was very attentive in the Hotel and made our stay extremely enjoyable. Flowers and water in room daily and waiters made paper flowers at our table. WestJet Representative Vilma gave us many insider tips on the area and it was nice... More

After reading many Tripadvisor reviews and working with what we could afford we chose the Melia Varadero for our first trip to Cuba. It was our anniversary trip and we splurged for the 'big room'.. the corner room with the big balcony. First impression was a lovely resort! Yes you can see some signs of age here and there but...

The beach is located next to Plaza Las Americas and the beach is crowded during the weekends. My son and me got there on Aug 16th and it turned out the central air conditioning system was faulty. It was taking a long time to solve. However, I'd like to thank the staff at the reception and specially Mr. Uliet Trujillo... More

We moved here from 3 days in Havana for some r&r, and had no problems achieving it. The A La Carte restaurants served some lovely food . The main restaurant had an ample choice of food to suit all tastes as did the 24 hour bar / snack bar. Some very good evening entertainment in the bars and restaurants. Pool... More

I used to love this hotel. It was my favorite. But I am allergic to cigarettes and they were letting people smoke in the hallways and so I had to go and stay at the Melia hotel, Sol Palmeras, next door. But really Melia Varadero is my favorite hotel in the world. I love the views the best. They're perfect... More
