Melia Internacional

Varadero, Cuba

The hotel

Shaking up the seaside scene in Varadero, the new Meliá Internacional has managed to find a spot on the resort’s ever-popular sweep of sand, giving you the promise of glorious beach days and hypnotic sea views. Its attractions aren’t all natural though – with more than ten dining and drinking venues, six spectacular pools (including a fun splash pool and children’s pool), the YHI Spa with its infinity pool and teen spa, and a boulevard lined with many of the hotel’s cafés, restaurants, and bars.

I love this Hotel 🙌🏻 We stayed at the level which is the adults only section and everything was perfect! The staffs were very helpful and friendly. Rooms were very modern, clean and all amenities. We’ll definitely come back. Thank you to Liset and Ivis they went over and beyond to help make our stay enjoyable.

I would never go back and would not recommend it. Having said that it may appeal to other people because it is an architecturally beautiful building. It’s just not for me. I should have done better research. My own fault

The resort was beautiful all throughout! The beaches were amazing, water was nice and warm, and no rocky areas either! What really stood out for us was the staff of this resort. If there was any problem, Kenia was sure to fix it for us right away. Not only that but Kenia went above and beyond to ensure our trip was enjoyable, she walked us to our restaurants as well as our massages. Also we absolutely loved Adrialys, Yissel, O'Naili, Yudiel, Yadiana, Cintia, Dayana, Talia at the Sky Bar.( I may have spelt some names wrong). They were amazing, we spent most of our nights at the Sky Bar and they made our trip so much more enjoyable. Yaniris from the Cigar Bar was very courteous, polite, knowledgeable and the drinks were always very good. When it came to the house cleaning, Yaneisy did a spectacular job cleaning me and my friend's rooms. We have a friend who is severely allergic to eggs and Kenia, Miryan from the Level Restaurant and others always ensured that he had no issues at any restaurants and made sure that what he was eating was always safe. Talia, the server at the beach party was also great. Lastly, we would like to thank Nelido for helping us make this happen and helping us with our rooms and coordinating everything for us before we got there. We will not hesitate to come back to this resort the next time we come back to Cuba. Read less

The food is pretty bad and apparently unless you stay in The Level your really not that important to them . I put a much longer review but they deleted it . Beware there are better hotels that will take care of you no matter what room you paid for . Read less
