We loved Melia Varadero. Such a nice relaxing resort. Our room was clean with a super view. The A/C worked perfectly all day and night without hick-ups. The musical talents that provided the perfect sound while relaxing inside near the bar, were out of this world. First class. Buffet-style food was incredibly good, fresh, and beautifully presented. The staff was... More

The hotel was lovely and the staff extra nice. The breakfast Buffett was most enjoyable and the fresh baked breads were first rate. We enjoyed the beach.....the swims were perfect. A memorable vacation stay we will always remember. Our Cuba trip was so special.

This is an ‘all inclusive’ hotel which is highly rated on TripAdvisor. We had booked 7 nights for a family of six. Unfortunately, there is not much positive to report from the visit apart from the fact that it was possible to shorten the length of the stay and have the costs refunded. Already after the first day it was... More

Arrived in Veradero after 10 days of staying in Casa Particulares in Havana, Viñales, Trinidad and Santa Clara. However, this trip was technically our honeymoon so we gave in and decided to "live it up for a few nights at MV." We arrived at MV around 12:15pm and our room was not yet ready. Checked in at 3, and stayed... More

The experience was fantastic! We loved the beach! We spent the majority of each day basking in the sun, swimming and snorkeling. The beach bartenders were our favourite!
