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.

My wife and I travelled to Varadero Nov 5 to Nov 12. Seventh time to this area and by far the prettiest resort we’ve been to.Cleanest most comfortable best food and drinks. The beach is the nicest we’ve seen water very clear. Staff courteous and efficient. Grounds are stunning and well groomed. We will not hesitate to stay there again next year.

There wasnt a huge selection of choice at the buffet but all was prepared nicely and cooked well, we tried the Japaneze restaurant and the other nice one had good meals at both restaurants. Not the longest beach but long enough to go for a nice walk, close to the supermarket 5 minute walk. No problem getting sun loungers but saying that it was low season. Read less

We returned to Melia Las Americas in September 2019 and once again had an amazing experience. The GM does a great job in ensuring customer satisfaction, and on this trip we were lucky to have met Chef Gennaro! What a wonderful, warm and friendly person. He cooked a special pasta meal for us one evening, I am still dreaming of it. Absolutely delicious. If truth be told, while we enjoyed the restaurants (especially La Arcada) we spent most evenings at the buffet because we found it that good! The resort is beautiful, the beach and pools outstanding, can’t wait to go back and see the newly renovated bungalows. The Level service both in the hotel and on the beach is well worth it! Everything is spotlessly clean, service in most of the areas is friendly , and we just can’t wait to go back in May 2020. We think we have found our second home that has probably one of the nicest beaches with crystal clear water and white sand. See you in May Melia Las Americas, if not sooner! Read less

Travelled October 2019 to this wonderful hotel and golf resort. This was my first time in Cuba. It is a beautiful country with warm, and friendly people. The staff at this resort were very accommodating and waited on our group of 10 guys to make us feel special. The hotel, on the ocean, was greatly located - with the adjoining golf course. The resort is not sprawling and short steps to beach etc. The rooms and grounds are clean and well managed. Pools are awesome. The food was fine with lots of choice. Lazarus that does the eggs is super friendly, smiling and wants everyone to enjoy his omelettes :) Ana Rosa and staff at the check in was super nice and took the time to help us get everything we needed upon arrival and beyond. She remembered my name from that time on - nice for their customers. Elizabeth, Sales Executive, was very helpful including looking after any transportation or special requests from our group (she gave the personal time and attention). Wilfredo, in the lounge bar, and Pablo, etc were very happy and friendly with our group. I remember their names given the connection they made with us. I enjoyed the trip so much, I am returning in January 2020 with my wife. We look forward to the sunshine, ocean, and smiles. Viva la Cuba! Read less
