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.

Just came back from spending 4 nights in this fabulous resort which I highly recommend.Is just in front of the most beautiful beach I've ever seen😍 with turquoise water and white sand. The installations were pretty good and all inclusive including the beach umbrellas and hammocks, as well as the food and cocktails all day long. What will make me return is the hotel activities such as dance, volley, beach party, the animators really made it fun, specially Amed Comas was the loveliest entertainer! always so cheerful and trying to bring people together. I will definitely come back as soon as I can. Read less

Just back from an excellent vacation at Melia Las Americas. Food was great; room was great (we were upgraded to a bungalow at check in); beds were comfortable; the beach was fantastic - NEVER a problem getting a chair at the beach; the golf course and the shopping plaza were nearby - both were a 2 minute walk from the hotel; hotel staff were friendly and helpful (special thanks to the patient and friendly front desk staff). Great entertainment. 10 minute taxi ride to downtown. Can't say enough good things about the hotel. My husband and I loved it and plan to go back next year. Read less

We found this last minute so we didn't go for the golf, but after talking to people who enjoyed days of golfing on the beautiful course it would have been a nice addition. The welcome desk, the concierge who booked our a la carte restaurant was friendly and kind, Daniel, the bellman was helpful, efficient and welcoming. Our room maid, Yolanda, did an excellent job keeping our room clean and fresh as early in the day as possible. We visited all of the restaurants, bars and snack bars where the food and drinks were exceptional. The Club Sandwich, Burger, ham and cheese sandwich and bar service at the Poolside Snackbar was by far the best service we had all week. The lunch at La Robleza was the most tasty, fresh and authentic Cuban food we had at the resort. The longest waits we had were at the terrace bar and even there it was minimal, it was just a busy spot because of the location. We have no complaints about any staff interaction, conditions or service. The entertainment in the lobby and in the theatre was fantastic. It was a terrific week and it was truly hard to leave.

Great spot to stay. Most of the staff exceptionally friendly - bartender Elvis (pool bar) a little crusty but Alphonso and the kitchen staff more then makes up for it.

Great spot to stay. Most of the staff exceptionally friendly - bartender Elvis (pool bar) a little crusty but Alphonso and the kitchen staff more then makes up for it. Elizabeth at check-in desk was amazing. Overall, the friendliest staff I have ever encountered in Cuba. We were all happy with our accommodations - we stayed in a bungalow near the beach and it was clean. My only suggestion would be to have a morning coffee pot brewing in the pool area for early risers and have an area in that vicinity where we could exchange our towels. Best food I've ever had in Cuba as well. Quite good - restaurants and buffet. Staff at the International Restaurant were exceptional. Entertainment was good - you should book that 70's band for more then one evening. They were Excellent...had the whole hotel rocking. Beach spectacular. Very Clean. A fun time was had by all four of us. We all agreed that we would have no problem returning to the Melia Las Americas. Thank You for Everything. Read less
