Chapter Twelve - Matanzas, Cárdenas and Varadero

Normally US visitors will never see a Cuban beach resort, but Road Scholar's Art Programme is an exception. We follow a tight schedule of art related activities and have little time to laze around on the beach, but our evenings are free and we can enjoy a late swim in the ocean, watch the sunset from the top floor of the Dupont Mansion and partake …

Turquoise Beaches!

20klm of stunning turquoise beach at perfect temperature and soft sand…. A girl at information told me "You haven't been to Cuba if you haven’t gone to Varadero", she was damn right. Truly awesome. Horse drawn carriages are still a means of transportation here :-)

Varadero

... time diving after getting my PADI OW license and my first dive outside of Sweden. Well it was much easier to dive here than back home. It's less weight, warm, wetsuit instead of dry and clear sight. A boat took me and 8 other to the open sea where we dived for a wreck in 30m depth. The second dive was in 12m depth and started with some corals and finished by a wreck. I am very pleased with the diving that cost ...

    This is one fantastic hotel

    It's quite pricey, but it's everything you may expect from a top-of-the-line Melia. Smooth, friendly check-in, lovely, spacious rooms, and bathrooms and fancy amenity kit therein. A great selection of restaurants, out-of-this-world beach, lots of free entertainment (well...nothing is free, of course!). Added extras, it's located right next to the only 18-hole golf course in Cuba and also the exotic "Xanadú" Dupont Mansion, a fabulous place to view sunset with an ice cold Bucanero beer in hand.
    What more can I say? Just two negatives...achingly slow elevators..convoluted restaurant reservation system. On arrival I was told all the specialty restaurants were fully booked, yet I never saw the restaurant of my choice more than half full.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Melia Las Americas Varadero

    Great Expensive hotel

    from

    Very nice hotel, very quiet. Rooms were great as we were staying in the "bungalows" next to the hotels, big suites, not very well sound insonorized, we could hear the neighboors talking, and when they were taking a shower, it is as if we were in the shower with them.

    Very Satisfied with Las Americas

    from

    We are 74 years old, have travelled extensively, and are very picky. We found the Las Americas fulfilled our expectations for our 2 week holiday March 1st. - March 15 th. / 04. The staff were extremely accomodating and friendly. They fulfilled every request with a smile.

    One of the best in varadero

    from

    Our one week stay at the Melia in Feb 04 was very pleasant. For starter, we had originally booked to stay at the Sol Sirenas Coral which i had stayed before and had a great time, but somewhere along the line, there were overbookings and we got upgraded to the Melia plus 100 american each in return. The bungalows are huge, food was the best in Cuba and i have been there 9 times now. The beer is served in bottles and cans by the beach, no draft!! Staff as usual in Cuba is pleasant and the safety in Varadero is fantastic. Only downside to this hotel is the pool area. Maybe the one of the worst that i have seen in Cuba. So the beach was the perfect setting.

    Wondeful

    from

    i had e wonderful time in this hotel the food was exelent the beach is nice and the golf course wow i play evreday go ther you wont regret

    Pretty Good for Cuba

    from

    Just got back from Varadero for the third time. First time to Sol Club Las Sarenas (don't go), second time to Sandals Royal Hicacos (awesome!) third time Milia Las Americas. Each expereince was very different.

    All pros & no cons

    from

    From the moment we arrived at the hotel, everything was excellent. Forget all of the other comments about just okay service. Every staff member was both friendly and attentive. They are both deserving and appreciative of tips (this is how they make most of their living). We were greeted with smiles and a welcome mojito (national drink). The price of food maybe more expensive than outside of the hotel but it is still comparable, if not cheaper than food at other resorts. We found the drinks less expensive, $2 for a beer & $3 for a cocktail. We were not on an all inclusive plan & definately recommend going that route. There are plenty of delicious & reasonanble restaurants in and around Varadero. However, breakfast was included and it was plentiful and yummy. Finally, about all those mosquitoes? What mosquitos? Maybe they are just around in the rainy season.

    Great value

    from

    Stayed at the Melia Las Americas in late FEB03. A very good hotel and excellent value - beautiful lobby (grand piano with entertainment in the evening, fish pond flowing through the lobby), attentive staff.

    Loved hotel Las Americas and the beach

    from

    We spend one week in this pleasant hotel during the month of march 2003.Hotel with good atmosphere and friendly service.We had a good time there and plan to go back.Watch out for expensive trips to Havana, better to rent a car.

    Good hotel

    from

    We did stay there for 120 Euros day booked via ... full board. A wonderful place what the most beautiful beaches weve ever seen, we felt like in a fotoshooting-seccion. Blue clear warm and nice water, white sandbeach, amazing!The only but: you have to pay drinks extra which are expensive!

    Excellent Hotel

    from

    Great hotel. The best on Varadero. Rooms are comfortable, lobby is very nice, and food is good.

    BUT if you buy the food there it is *very* expensive. The second time I went, I had meals included and saved a LOT.
