HOTEL We enjoyed our stay. Staff were friendly and thoughtful. Remembered our birthdays and added special touches to room, made dinner reservations and even had a violin solo arranged for us. Room was cool and clean. The ocean view was great and service on the Level is excellent. Excursions were very good and educational and we loved to Havanna and...

We had requested twice that evening to get them changed. Went to bedroom at two AM and still not rectified. Personally took pillows to front desk, only...

We checked into this resort for a family wedding in early February expecting a good time and we were not disappointed.Our main go to guy was Oscar who not only organized a memorable Superbowl party but officiated the wedding ceremony. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to cater to all our needs. The buffet, entertainment...

My wife and I had a great time at the Meliá Varadero. We arrived Sat Feb 11, our check-in time was less than 10 minutes, which is the fastest we have ever experienced in any of our multiple visits to the Caribbean countries. The resort has a modern feel, but yet it still has an older architecture as well. The...

We have just come back from another wonderful holiday at the Melia Varadero. We traveled with my brother-in-law, his wife and my parents. This was our 7th consecutive year at this resort, 6 years for my brother-in-law and his wife and the 1st year for my parents. We stayed again for 2 weeks and loved every minute of it. The...

After a relatively stressful day of travel just to get to Varadero and a botched reservation at their sister property (Melia Las Antillas) we settled on a last minute booking at Melia Varadero. As we pulled up and entered the resort we were greeted by the sound of upbeat American music in the entry atrium area and glass of champagne....

This is my first in-depth review on tripadvisor.ca. As I’ve benefitted greatly from reviews at tripadvisor, so here I am doing one in hope to be helpful for other viewers. I travel in the middle of January 2017. Weather: out of 7 days I only have 1 day of cloudy and some waves. The rest were sunny and the ocean...

It is a nice hotel for the cuban standards. The sea is not as good as expected. The food was again relatively good. One does not go to Cuba for the food or the luxury. One visits Cuba for the experience. This is the appropriate attitude if you want to have a good time.
