The hotel was a decent stay for Cuba. I went with an open mind and was ok with the issues. The check in was good. I landed up upgrading to The Level since the rooms were better. There's a lounge you can access and it was decent. The room view was good, nice view of the ocean. The beach is... More

We loved this hotel! We stayed in room 3614 and wow!! What a view!! Stunning!! Room was very clean. It was dated but still awesome in my opinion! The elevators are slow and small but get the job done in the end. If your in a hurry take the stairs. If your in a hurry you shouldn't be on vacation... More

We stayed at the Melia Varadero for 7 nights in November 2016, and had a very good time aside from some minor problems. I must say first - we loved the staff there. Our favourite staff member there was Dayra who was very helpful and a lot of fun. We took pilates, aqua aerobics and dance classes with her and... More

This, as you can probably guess, was a disappointment to us. The rooms were large with a good bathroom, however the lighting in it was poor and even after asking for the light bulbs to be replaced there was little if any improvement. The public areas were large and spacious but even allowing for the "Cuban" effect were constantly noisy... More

We booked the level because we wanted to stay where we knew we would be comfortable. They welcomed us with drinks and a superb VIP level of customer service. The rooms were clean and the amenities were wonderful. The food was excellent, we especially loved the steak house. We highly recommend laying on the beach versus the pool. The crystal... More

Cannot say enough about this hotel Rooms great. Staff awesome. Food choices without limit. Pool area and outside seating and restaurants superb. All inclusive resort with everything you need. If you want a real experience BOOK the LEVEL and get a room ending in....10 like 5610 they have outstanding balconies with total view and privacy. Great stay

It's new, out of the way right on the beach and very large. I would not stay here again. It's certainly not my style. U.S. plugs didn't fit like they did in Havana. Good thing I brought a convertor anyway. Confusing layout to try to find your floor and room. Slow elevators. Much faster to use the steps. The concierge... More

My first time visiting Cuba and was aware of its 'stigmas' (good and bad). Kept an open mind though! Visited in the first week of October with a group of 9 total.
