I had been reading the reviews for a while on this hotel since I was going for a wedding and had no hand in the choosing of the hotel. We'll some of the reviews were bang on - check your change when you convert your money - the guy who ripped us off was fired during our stay. The food... More

We travelled with our 4 month old son with Sunwing to the Melia Varadero, He travelled very well and was greated by everyone with open arms the entire trip, both from the hotel guests and especially the staff who loved our son. The room was comfortable with an excellent view and great cleaning staff. The food was surprisingly not bad,... More

I wanted to write to you and say that myself and my girl friend were there in march 2010 and we had a wonderful time! We were really happy with how the staff treated us, especially Isbel Ramirez and Emilio and Leo the bartender. Sincerely Jon Stewart and Tina Camilli. We will definately go again soon and for longer!

My wife and I recently stayed at the Melia Varadero for a week. We are fairly experienced travellers having been to: Miami, Cancun twice, Mayan Riviera, Punta Cana and a Caribbean cruise. This was by far the worst Hotel we have EVER stayed at! *** The public rest rooms in the hotel smelled worse than those at the Varadero airport.... More

We arrived late evening on Saturday night and I was on a flight back home on Monday night. I couldn't wait to get away. We upgraded to a Superior room and were disappointed.
