    An excellent hotel for a relaxing break. The very modern and bright rooms. The food was really delicious and entertainment was the best I’ve seen in a hotel. All staff were very friendly and wanted to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. Bar staff got to know what we were drinking very quickly and served drinks without having to be asked! A big shout out to our friends from pool bar, excellent service specially Dayan was exceptional with us Thank you all

    My wife and I just got back from 15 days at this stunning, modern, upscale but relaxed hotel. It was our fifth trip to Varadero and we would never stay anywhere else now. The highlight was the staff. From reservations (love you, Catherine) to front desk to animation, to cleaning to table staff to say we were looked after is an understatement. They all appeared to have fun and enjoy meeting and seeing to the needs of the guests. They are extremely well trained and organized which was remarkable given the hotel just opened. Melia did a good job in preparing. A few thing to keep in mind at present. The hotel is only about 25% occupied. Only two of the a la carte restaurants are open but they rotate the specialities: Mexican, Tex Mex, Cuban, Japanese and Italian. We tried almost all of them all and were impressed by both a la cartes and by the patio restaurant next to the Cuban one offering table service at lunch. (Thanks Arianna) To give an example, one of the salads at the a la carte was tomato and tuna with the tuna very fresh and cooked medium rare. Another was a ceviche that was probably the best I have every had. Not to say the buffet is to be avoided. It is fantastic with a great deal of variety. (Thanks to Carlos among others) The buffet has offerings that are usually not available in Cuba. For example, every night there are a wide selection of marinated seafood dishes including raw oysters (my fav) with a different topping every night. My favourite was the caviar topping. Most every day lobster is offered as are three sizes of shimp ready to be cooked on the grill. There is a meat grill station, a pasta station, and a carvery every night. In the morning the fellow at the egg station knew what I liked and had the eggs started when he saw me coming. To round things out there is a great snack bar open 24 hours with the best hamburgers I have had in Cuba. (Thanks to Sergio and Yaidelyn - and can't forget Alberto on the beach - Best mohito of the trip) The kids are all capitvated by the ice cream shop next door. The coffee hellados tastes like you are having a cup of coffee. My wife made good friends with almost all of the animation staff. Hats off to Lester, Ricardo and Bebe among others. Dance lessons, spin class, pool bike are among the few things offered almost every day. Our kids are grown but there is a great kids area and kids club. We met Claudia at the kids club and she clearly loves her job and the kids love her. The entertainment is the best we have seen in Cuba. Dancing, singing, guitarists, sax players, flutists, septets, quartets all over the place. It is amazing. There is even live sax on the pool deck during pool bike. Are you kidding? We met Phillipe who does the sound and lights. Great guy. And the beach. One of the best in the world. The Cubans are careful, however, and the lifeguards will not let swimmers in if the surf is too high and the flag is red. There is still some construction going on but it was not in the least disruptive unless you are looking to be upset about something. The comments in other reviews about this and the absence of landscaping are just ridiculous. The hotel is two months old. You can't grow a full size palm tree in two months. What is already present is impressive. Lots of tropical plants and flowers to enjoy. In a couple of years once everyting is finished it will be beyond belief. I could go on an on. Just go here.

    Stunning hotel with the most friendly and helpful staff. Hospitality was incomparable, Range of activities and facilities throughout massive hotel complex. Massages were relaxing and affordable. Drinks were delicious and bar staff were always asking if you wanted a drink. Entertainment was the best I’ve seen in a hotel. Almost 5 different types of performers per night. Get a pool/sea view room and you will have a performance every night at sunset from the pool area. The cleaning staff were excellent, so professional and friendly. Great attention to detail, especially the wonderful Leisis.

    Very Good, But Not Quite Ready Yet

    The hotel itself was nice, but it was far from complete when we were there. Only 20% of the rooms were open. The staff though was super friendly and very very nice, all the way down to the gardeners. The rooms were very clean and modern. It did take us about five days to figure out the lighting system though. A European design that we haven't encountered before. The food was good, but we only had one A la carte restaurant to choose from while we were there as the other restaurants weren't open yet. The entertainment at night was good except they had them stuck at this small little pool side bar. No matter which table you sat in, there was a post blocking part of the show. Plus the entertainers were very limited on space. Also, some pictures make the walk to the beach look far, but its really only a two minute walk from the pool. I can't give it a full five star rating because we didn't get to experience the full hotel.
