    My first experience with Melia Varadero was great. As you can imagine, I have a lot of questions before my first stay in Cuba. I must say that I was afraid because all the bad remarks and notes found on internet... I wrote to the hotel and I was quite impressed by the reactivity and efficiency of Mario Manuel Morín Rodríguez (Manager of The Level part of this Hotel) in aswering all my questions and giving extra accurate information in a very professional way. A very kind contact that reassured me. Thank you for your help. We're looking forward to meeting you at the end of the month.

    My husband and I got married with a small group of 15 other guests. It was absolutley beautiful! Being the wedding couple we were automatically upgraded into the nicest rooms offering a spectacular view of the peninsula and the ocean beyond. It also included lunch at a more private restuarant. I always looked forward to lunch at this place as it had the best cheese burgers and steak. Our wedding coordinator Ana Marys was fantastic. She put all my worries at ease and ended up saving us a lot of money! She was great at seeing our vision and offering suggestions. I just wanted a simple wedding and it was tastefully done in the gazebo which I highly recommend as the setting, as it makes for stunning photos. I recommend bringing chair bows and other decor of your colours for the wedding and don't get your hopes up for your colour choices in flowers to be offered. And honestly besides bouquets and boutonnieres the setting was already so beautiful there is no need for too many flowers. I had a DJ put together our music before we left for Cuba and we downlaoded it on our phones. We were able to play everything off of that connected to a speaker offered by the Melia. The photographer there was okay. There were some beautiful photos but if I could have afforded to fly my own in or at least had Pinterest ideas on my phone, I would have prefered that as I found there wasn't much advise offered and a major language barrier with their photographer. Futhermore, I highly recommened taking dukoral before your trip and avoid the shirmp. A lot of it was raw which most people in Canada aren't accustomed to. Also as much as they offer filtered water it is still water from Cuba and our stomachs just aren't accustomed to theirs. All the guests who took dukoral had no issues while the guests that didn't expeiences some discomfort.... All in all it was a fantastic trip and a beautiful wedding!

    Perfect vacation

    Amazing hôtel, clean, friendly staff, good food, amazing beach. If you can, upgrade to the section Level. Mario the manager and his staff will make you feel like a King and his Queen !! Nice lounge at the Level where you can enjoy cocktails and also eat. Plus the steakhouse for lunch just for the Level is great with the ocean view.

    My husband and I got married at Melia Varadero in July 2019 and it was perfect! We had a large wedding, about 90 people, and everything was organized, beautiful and so much fun :) The wedding coordinator Ana was amazing and so helpful before, during and after the wedding. She answered all our questions quickly and made sure everything went smoothly on our wedding day. She helped us stay organized and stress free through it all. She really helped us make our vision of our wedding into reality. The food, service and amenities at the hotel were great too. Thank you so much Ana and the whole Melia Varadero team :)
