Melia Las Americas

Varadero, Cuba

The hotel

Deliciously understated, this grown-up resort knows it’s got a coveted location on its side – not just because it’s a mere 10m from the white sands, but because it’s the only hotel with direct access to Varadero Golf Club. And these surroundings add to its feeling of space and serenity – and to the views captured from its sea view rooms and Habana Club beach bar. Exclusively for adults, the dozen dining and drinking spots at Meliá Las Américas range from an international buffet to a Japanese teppanyaki restaurant and Italian trattoria – with some dining experiences reserved for guests upgrading to The Level rooms.

This was an absolutely beautiful resort! The hotel is an older hotel but it was kept immaculately clean and comfortable. Julio, the Show Man, was excellent! Julio has a GREAT sense of humour and enjoys making people happy!! He sure was nice to have around!! I stayed on the second floor and had an oceanview. There was no obstruction to my view and I enjoyed sitting on the balcony early morning and evenings. The room was basic but comfortable. The water pressure was normal and I had no issues with the room. The food was good. I found more than enough to eat daily with a good variety of things to choose from such as breads, salads, fruits, vegetables, meats, hot and cold foods. Option to have meats and fish grilled, pasta and omelette bar. Servers were friendly and work hard at making sure all guests were pleased. Drinks were good. Lots of drinks to choose from including a variety of specialty coffees. I liked that it was only a few steps to the beach. There was not a shortage of lounge chairs but you do need to reserve your spot early to guarantee you get the spot you like on the beach. The water was warm and if no rain in the forecast, I found the water was calm and nice to stay in and enjoy the crystal clear salt water and soak up the sun. There is a plaza walking distance from the resort. Of course the beautiful and well kept golf course right next door. I will definitely recommend Melia Las Americas to friends and family. Read less

This was my forth visit to this resort and it will be my last. On my third visit I noticed that customer service was lacking but when reading reviews of improvement I thought I’d give it another chance. Let’s start with the pros Beautiful beach Great golf Beautiful weather Great À la cartes Great drinks Beach bathroom was kept immaculate Now for the cons When reserving I requested a balcony.. got a room with no balcony , broken curtains hanging and nothing in fridge... asked to be moved to another room... moved to another room and unpacked only to find the AC wasn’t working had to move to another room which had a huge balcony with no privacy over the bus port so all you smell was bus exhaust. Requested via email as did the travel agent if the resort could do something special for my husbands 50th bday only to be told when I got there that they needed 24 hours notice which I’m sure via email was way more then 24 hours Also did my dinner reservation online to save time only to be told by the concierge that she doesn’t get the emails cause she doesn’t have internet. Was advices to book tee times on line , to which I did for a fee of $2.50 and person per tee time only to find out that it was not necessary, all you needed was voucher from resort. The cleaning ladies only change your towels, change garbages and possible changes sheets, but make beds and sweep. There was no cleaning! Had to call to have our fridge refilled more times then I should of. There was only a handful of staff that were welcoming which is unfortunate cause there were a few staff members that were great but the bad out weighed the good Most of the staff look like they just didn't want to be there. You were ignored while they talked amongst themselves or on their cell phones. I felt that if you weren’t staying at the Levels Sections of the resort you weren’t worth the customer service! I’m sorry to say but I would not recommend this resort if you looking for customer service. Things as simply as a hola or a swan of towels on our bed go along way. Read less

This was our second time at the Melia Las Américas, and our 8th time in Varadero. The Melia is now our “go to” resort there! We found “ The Level “ to be worth it. We had a spacious bungalow near the Bungalow pool and snack bar. The Level lounges are staffed with wonderful, pleasant women who are very professional and helpful. You can also call the Level number from your room for anything you need help with. We were able to have breakfast every morning at Il Lemoncello , where Marlon took very good care of us. A great start to our days! For lunch we often went to the snack bar near the bungalow pool. Alberto always greeted us warmly and took great care of everyone! The shrimp amd fish dishes were yummy. The beach is absolutely beautiful and Nelson made sure we had lounges, and pads, and beverages! He was always happy and helpful, like so many of the staff at the resort. The young woman at the towel hut is delightful! Really friendly and helpful and warm . (Sorry I forget her name) The lobby is gorgeous, and there is often live music, or other entertainment there. The grounds of the resort are beautiful, and gardeners are always working to keep it looking good. We enjoyed dinner at La Arcada twice during our stay. Pedro was our waiter and he was great. Pleasant and efficient, and made great crepes! We also really enjoyed the string quartet proving dinner music. They know anything you ask for! And play it very well. This resort is head and shoulders above any other place we have stayed in Cuba . The staff really take care of you, from a welcoming check -in onward. We find the resort to be elegant and relaxing. You can do as much or as little as you like, and have a great time. Read less
