    Poor managed hotel. Long lines for Buffet and once you got in there was little to no food. Rooms are lacking housekeeping lamp shades stained, sticky floor, towels not replaced when required, always had to ask customer service for water and coffee replacement. Our safe was not attached to the wall and our toilet was leaking when reported it was not addressed so demanded to be moved. They moved us all right into a moldy smelling room with door that would not lock! After the 3rd day we finally got move to another room it was not perfect but okay. Really don' t know who is writing reviews on this place because they are falsified. You can book this place or follow my review and go some where else. BEWARE!!!!!!

    Fantastic

    Melia Marina Varadero has a great human factor. People is great wherever you go. The guys at the beach bar are very nice, Yunior from animation is fantastic, Michael bellboy same, thats a nice team. We spent the day at the beach with Elisvan, very nice guy too who teach us how to dance (caribe style). Great fun with all of them. The restaurant at the beach was amazing. Good barbacue, good fish and spanish famous paela. We went to Cayo Blanco for excursion, it was ok, we had fun with the dolphins. In general, great trip

    We have spent our holidays at Melia Marina Varadero. Nice hotel located in a Marina with beautiful views. The rooms were spacious and spotless. The animation team was great. Yunior made our stay, great person. The restaurants were all good, our favorite, Don Ernesto. The buffet was nice, with a huge variety of dishes. The beach was amazing, clear water, very clean, it was breathtaking. I´ll see you soon Melia Marina

    My husband and I travelled this year to Melia Marina and we stayed for 3 weeks over Christmas and New Years. This is our 3rd time to the property and we were expecting only the best & it is the best that we received. We arrived and were checked in right away, for those who have not been to Cuba in the past, you will notice the true difference with the Cuban vacation is THE PEOPLE! The People here are amazing, as soon as you arrive you will notice the perspective on life is to be Happy... The hotel is wonderful, it is situated in a small port which gives you the option to walk to the town and enjoy the boardwalk. There is nightly entertainment as well with a theme each night. The Food, of course for those who have been to Cuba, you will know that it is challenging to find a really great tasty meal, for a couple of reasons, mostly because the embargo has prevented the country from receiving luxurious goods. In any case, this hotel and the management go out of their way to ensure that they do the ultimate best with the resources they have. It is very tasty and there is a lot of variety to choose from. The drinks / coffee, pretty at par with other resorts. The beach is one of the best I have been to and of course Cuba has the best beaches. If you are looking for a wonderful getaway, we highly recommend this Hotel!

    The room was ok but needs some work. Actually there 's a lot to be fixed here. Bedroom staff needs to work a bit on their cleaning. I killed a mosquito on a Monday and its blood was still on my nightstand when I left on Friday. Not enough free bars and coffee places. One free bar in the main lobby that does both and always packed with people. No coffee in the room either if you want it, ask customer service. Or bring your own coffee and tea..the pots are there. Beach is beautiful. The best place to have your lunch is the beach bar. Barbeque fish is delish. All the other food is the same as the Buffett ( let's just say we don't go to Cuba to eat) lol. We only went to one restaurant -Don Peperoni which I guess was Italian once but Mediterranean now. I must say it was delicious. We went there twice. Don't get scammed at the airport when traveling back home. They are selling side by side tickets for 50 dollars...so stupid. I mean you came on the plane and you sat together? Now their trying to sell you this package but the only thing you would get is to sit together which you should be able to anyway. Sorry, that really pissed me off. Would i book this hotel again? No oh yes and was told the upgrade at the hotel isn't worth it by several people. One thing that we did love love love was the Catamaran. We choose the swim with the dolphin's package. It was so worth it. If you can't swim well it's fine. It's very safe.
