The Melia Varadero has been my favourite hotel in Varadero for over a decade and its always such a pleasure to return! This time I was there with a group of 26 Canadians and the care and attention to the needs of my colleagues was as usual, "over the top". The restaurants (my favourite is Fuente Ventura) serve wonderful food,...

We spent a couple of nights here relaxing after a tour of Cuba, but the stay got off to a bad start at reception. One poor man was on his own trying to deal with coach loads checking in as well as other enquiries. I had to queue up 5 times to a) check in b) get my key c)...

My girlfriend and I went here for our very first trip from Febuary 16, 24th and our experience overall was good with some negatives aspects of course, the resort is very nice, very beautiful, the building is very well layed out and the beach, pool and everything is all very close, everything is walking distance. There's a little market place...

We called for a doctor on Friday night and was informed the doctor was only there from 9-5 so I rode out the fever that night. The next...

Cuba was a great place to pick for our first holiday. The food at the buffet was amazing. You never went hungry with all the choices to pick from. The La Cartes were not quite as interesting, with exception of the entertainment provided there. The staff (with exception of the Trinidad Restaurnt) were out standing, very friendly and helpful. The...

If you are looking for a place to crash where the only tough decision is the beach or the pools, this is a great place. Hotel staff were super friendly and most go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Food is basic Cuban fare - not gourmet, but plentiful and always something to eat - never went...

My husband and I visited the Melia Varadero in February after a very enthusiastic recommendation from a travel agent. We had a beautiful and clean room on the 5th floor, overlooking the ocean. The beach was beautiful and it was easy to get a lounger in either the sun or the shade. However... The food and drinks are truly disappointing....

I will be doing our full review of this hotel shortly.......just couldn't let the last review go by, without correction. There certainly ARE non-smoking facilities at Melia Varadero, such as ALL the enclosed restaurants, where there is no direct breeze from outside. If clients were ignorant enough to ignore the obvious signs, like no visible ashtrays, you should have spoken...
