    In anticipation and excitement of our upcoming family vacation at the Hotel MELIÃ Varadero, The Level (end of October), and having never stayed at this beautiful resort, Mr. Mario Manuel Morin Rodriguez, the Manager of The Level at the resort, was absolutely wonderful and very patient in answering all of my many questions. All of my emails were answered quickly! He was also very kind and helpful in securing early dinner reservations for our family which is very much appreciated. Having vacationed in Cuba many times with family and enjoying all Cuba has to offer, we cannot wait to meet everyone at this beautiful resort. Thank you again and see you soon.

    I had my wedding at the Melia Varadero in August. The view and the venue was spectacular. The wedding coordinator Ana Marys Ortega did a very good job setting up event. The gazebo was beautiful and the honeymoon sweet was perfect. The staff of the hotel are great and my wife and I were very happy with the food and service. My brother in-law actually forgot his phone and the security staff had recovered it for him. It was the perfect place for our special day. Thank you, Steve

    First contact and information given excellent

    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.
