Carretera de las Morlas, Varadero, Matanzas, Cuba
Time certainly has flown since the Melia Varadero was inaugurated in 1991 in what was then a massive push to fill Varadero with quality hotels run by quality international management teams such as the Melia Group. Over 20 years on, Melia Varadero is still going strong and despite some well needed room adjustments and the addition of suites this 490 room hotel remains much the same but, now with 455 Double rooms, 28 specially furnished Deluxe double rooms and 7 presidential Suites, due to the hotels unique location, almost all rooms have sea views also.
When we say the same, we don´t mean 1990´s decor because this hotel has been updated several times over the past two decades to bring it into line with modern standards expected of Varadero Hotels today. On the whole, Melia Varadero has matured well and still pulls in the visitors to Varadero time and time again.
On the food front, the Breakfast buffet is exceptional with massive variety for all tastes. Breakfast can also be had at the pool bar along with freshly made natural juices unavailable at the buffet. This same buffet area is used for both lunch and dinner but guests are offered alternatives such as the Beach Barbeque (very good meat selection), Cuban restaurant (got to have those rice and beans) or the seafood restaurant which offers (for a small supplement) lobster.
Pretty close to just about everything in Varadero, the hotel is right in the middle of the Peninsula meaning that visiting the old town is not too far and likewise the newer end of Varadero is also quite close. Getting to the small artisan markets in Varadero is either a 15 minute walk or a 2 minute taxi (about 12 CUC) while visiting the Plaza Americas Shopping centre takes about 20 minutes on foot and a little longer if you walk the beach instead of the road.
Families with kids will feel well attended to at the Melia Varadero. The kids club is pretty much of the best there is and kids will revel in the amazing assortment of games and activities available to them. This leaves time for adults to soak up the sun at either the freshwater pool or better still, the idyllic Varadero Beach. The hotel offers a myriad of excursions ranging from trips to Havana to diving at the adjacent Varadero island of Cayo Blanco.
Melia Varadero is a well proven hotel, everything Works, staff are knowledgeable and the overall experience is good. Modern Varadero resorts are more expansive and have moved away from the high rise construction which was popular when Melia Varadero was created. However, some of these newer resorts can become tiring; especially walking from one place to another for the most basic services can become quite a task. Not so at Melia Varadero, where everything is a short lift ride away or never more than a short walk. For this reason we recommend Melia Varadero for those looking for ease of access and less hassle of the gargantuan resorts further along the coast in Varadero.
