We just spent a week at this fabulous resort. Where to start is the hard part. We booked this resort after reading all the reviews and we certainly agree with all the excellent reviews. The resort is stunning. The layout, the rooms, ammenities were all first class. But after being there a couple days you realize what makes this place is the amazing service and staff. Never did we see a staff member not smile and offer you a friendly '''hola''''. The manager himself walks around the resorts and meets and mingles with all the guests and genuinely thanks you for your visit and his first concern is if you are happy with your stay. Everyday room service called us to see if we are doing well and if there was anything we needed. That has never happened at any other resort we have been to. The a la cartes were world class. The buffet was awesome, on some days they would not have something you had the day before but perhaps thats part of the charm of cuba. The buffet food was more then plentiful and you always left with a smile and a full belly. A special mention goes out to Alberto behind the bar in the main lobby. What a great guy, very friendly and a howl to just sit and talk too. We will miss him very much. This isnt the kind of resort to go to if you are looking for a week long drunken party. This is very upscale but not snotty.You can still party with the great entertainment but we feel if you are into total relaxation with a blend of entertainment this is a great spot. We can safely say that Cuba now has a world class resort. I would absolutely recommend this resort to anyone looking for a great time and relaxation. We meet many other guests at the hotel that quickly became friends whom it was great to share the experience with. Hope Paul and Fung read this lol. Our heartfelt thank you to the staff and management of the Melia Marina Veradero. We will be back!!!!! and as promised with Canadian NHL banners for the new sports bar.
