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 our first stay to Melia L.A. and it was great,we have been coming to Cuba for 21 years and at least 45 times if not 50, to many hotels. Let me start with the not so good since they're minimal, we had room 4204, the tub finish was quite worn and the water went down very slow, this should be taken care of, other than that the bathroom was good. fresh towels every day and room was cleaned very well, Julia you did a great job, thank you. Upon arrival a bellman met us promptly and helped us with our bags, check in was courteous and smooth, thank you gentlemen. I/we went every day to La Cascada for coffee and or drinks and were treated very well, service excellent, 3 ladies that stood out, Mercy (my best Amiga at L.A.) Mariela and Lulu, gracias for everything ladies. Buffet...what can I say...really good, very good assortment, loved all the seafood, and no it does Not Taste All The Same as some people say about Cuba. The staff were very attentive, we never had to wait to be asked if we needed anything. Beach is fantastic, spent only one day, but staff at bar were great, thank you all.Never went to a la carte as we met with Cuban friends. Yesterday, our last day, we went to cafe beside buffet, our barmaid was Belice, loved her service and smile, thank you for everything and look for to seeing you again next year. We look forward to making this hotel our new second home and many more returns. Bravo everyone that served us Read less

Literally there are not enough good words to put out there for them. The guy at the front desk, the cleaning ladies, the bar staff, the waiters and all the people at the beach touched my heart with their kindness! Totally recommend it for single travelers, I didn’t feel bored one minute specially due to Rey and his beach-team who made sure I was having a good time, inviting me at every activity. They were like my friends really!! Read less

The rooms are good, the food was great, the golf course was fun (10th time playing) the hotel is very clean...i was very surprised unfortunately that 90% of the staff made us feel like we were bothering them...that kinda killed my vacation...that experience will stay with me for a couple of weeks and the better memories will take over at some point

For me, the server at Limoncello, Marlon, makes my vacation special. He is so professional, polite, respectful and is a real classy gentleman. I go to breakfast and lunch at Limoncello because if hus service. La Arcada restaurant is the best for dinner. The servers there are wonderful. The music is moving. It is an experience and I look forward to it every year. The GM is no longer there. We would see him everywhere. A real service industry leader. We never saw the new one. But our vacation was excellent. Thank you Marlon. You are wonderful. The bar was great too. The buffet, everyone. But Marlon, you hold a special place in our hearts. Thank you for a great week at your resort. We will be back Read less
