We had our destination wedding on February 22nd, 2017 at the Melia Varadero and were very pleased with how well organized the ceremony, dinner and cocktails turned out to be. We met with our two planners Barbara and Claudia the day after we arrived to go over the last details. Everything was very thorough and well planned out down to...

A Huge all inclusive hotel on a lovely bit of the beach. But nothing to tell we were in Cuba, could have been anywhere in the Caribbean other than the usual limited ingredients for meals and to some degree the lack of imagination on the part of the chefs. But good weather a turquoise sea and good G&T's plus clean...

We booked to stay at the Melia Varadero for one week in March 2017, staying in a double room on The Level with an all-inclusive package. The Level concierge contacted us a few weeks in advance to let us know they were there to help if we needed anything. We weren't sure about how to get to the hotel from...

Had a great time at Melia Varadero. Staff couldn't be friendlier. Food good. The staff are incredible. Great pool music and entertainment. Learned salsa. Friendly people. One girl works so hard. Livina I believe. These people work extremey hard for their money. 6 days a week. Loved them. Made the trip enjoyable.

Just returned march 15 and I would give this place a 4* rating. We had been to many resorts through the south but had avoided Cuba because of mixed reviews of the over all experience. I will say that I have changed my mind and would return to Cuba as long as there were certain amenities. THE LEVEL- we had...

This was our third trip to Cuba and the Melia Varadero. It was nice to see familiar staff and they have a fabulous memory. They gave a wonderful welcome back and nice to see you again. The rooms are nice and we had a sweet maid which I remembered from last time. This hotel has the best beach and is...

Worst service ever !!! Everything you leave inside the room at plain sight will be robbed! If you talk to the secutiry staff they say that you never even brought those items to your trip in first place. There must be an agreement between security and the housekeeper. Irayma was the name of the houskeeper who had access to our...

I can easily say that Melia Varadero is the best hotel in Varedora even in Cuba. It has a giant beach, several pools, restaurants and etc. Rooms are clean and neat, but the only thing is internet is very slow and there is a connection problem depending on the rooms. 1 hour is 4 cuc which is nearly 4 euros....

This was my first time in Cuba. I reviewed lots of hotels before settling on this one. The photos on the websites are dated. This is quite an old hotel and has not been maintained. The room I was given was old and the furniture was worn and well used. There was no view from the balcony other than trees...
