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.

Well maintained resort with a great atmosphere. The food was surprisingly good! Stayed at a neighboring resort the year before so I had somewhat of a comparison. Las Americas was wonderful! Just a suggestion to the F&B manager: the Mojitos were very disappointing, horrible taste. And the staff should be less grumpy. I would chose the same hotel… Read more
Well maintained resort with a great atmosphere. The food was surprisingly good! Stayed at a neighboring resort the year before so I had somewhat of a comparison. Las Americas was wonderful! Just a suggestion to the F&B manager: the Mojitos were very disappointing, horrible taste. And the staff should be less grumpy. I would chose the same hotel again on my next trip to Varadero! Hoping the drinks will be more tasty by then, and the staff a bit more smiley ;) Read less

Our endless love to the safe country, amazing beach and passionate hotel staff specially "Zahily Alzola & Raul Luis G. Garcia" , but above all this, is our feelings that we are among family and friends which is priceless, thereafter, every thing else like food, rooms, etc. is irrelevant.
Image of the Tripadvisor rating Would go back. Excellent resort for the price we payed.

The accomodations are astonishingly poor. The main hotel rooms are basic at best. The bungalows, with so many stairs, are death traps. Heaven forbid there's a fire or other emergency in the night.

The accomodations are astonishingly poor. The main hotel rooms are basic at best. The bungalows, with so many stairs, are death traps. Heaven forbid there's a fire or other emergency in the night. Patio area is non-existent. The food is sadly, also, basic at best. There is one "gourmet" restaurant, where the older, exclusively male, wait staff makes an attempt. The attempt falls short. I had two lobster tails (for which I paid extra, twice). One was delicious. It's partner, inedible. How on earth did they manage that? The common, relaxation areas near the lobby are ridiculous. Save your money. Go elsewhere. Read less
