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.

A highly recommended option in Varadero. Room, beach and unbeatable pools. Restaurant services full of variety, for example, The Nobleza Restaurant with Cuban food, wonderful !. But something special is the reception staff of "Chabeli and Maria Rosa”, lovely!. I have no words to explain how wonderful they are!. Thank you.

All the areas are very well maintained, many of them very comfortable. The room large and comfortable, clean, views really beautiful and very important point, the air conditioning in perfect conditions. I was pleasantly surprised, with the food, quality, a lot of variety, and for all tastes, seafood, vegetables, meat, salads,…despite the problems that exists in Cuba with the lack of all kind of supplies. The beach is lovely, the color of the sea in the Caribbean is fantastic, those blue ones have been engraved on my retina. The reception staff has given us all the necessary information, in general the staff is attentive and friendly what has facilitated our stay at the Resort and in Cuba. Read less
