We flew Air Transat out of Toronto, the plane was 2 hours late leaving and a bit cramped. This was our second visit to Melia Peninsula Varadero with family ranging in age from 8 to 43 years old. We were a bit worried this year because some of the staff, who we were friends with, no longer worked at the resort, but we had a great time. We all had rooms in building 28 so were able to visit back and forth easily, this was an unexpected treat. A big thank-you to the efforts of the main desk staff for ... this. We could go to several a la carte restaurants and enjoyed them all, the service you receive and the whole dining experience in these restaurants was better than expected. Laguna, La Gondola and El Tocorro all have fabulous food and service. We also enjoyed the buffet and especially the staff who works there, always helpful and cooperative. We had bad weather for two days, but had come prepared with cards and dominos, so we just settled in at Laguna for the afternoon. The entertainment team was really great. We hired a driver to take us to Havana for the day. Took us to where we wanted to go and a few places he felt we would like to see, he also made sure we knew that the restaurant the other side of the Yamuri Bridge had the best pina coladas in Cuba, he was right, they were well worth the stop! This is the second time we have just hired a driver for the Havana trip and it is always cheaper than the tours. I have been to 3 different resorts in Cuba and highly recommend Melia Peninsula. The huge variety of entertainment sets it apart. Outside the lobby bar they had bands playing every night. They also had pianists, classical guitar players, magicians and dancers entertaining earlier in the evenings in the lobby bar area. The worst thing about Meliá Peninsula, leaving…. read hotel review

A nice hotel with excellent staff. I'll hotels in Varadero, but certainly the Melia Cohiba is the best I have been very nice and probably repeat. After trying the restaurant 4 specialty I liked was the Bistro restaurant. Great service and the best lobster they serve, have the smallest detail and strive to service. The snack bar is a type YoYo if I remember his name, professional team and excellent management that composes the hotel. Fabritzo Raul Angel no objection and great management team who were always very attentive to customer feedback and is always wanting to improve young people ... eager to please little thing today is because sometimes you complain in a hotel of giving a bottle of wine for your silence and let them alone, but they do not. Raul and his team take into account the views of the people. Thank you very much for me and my wife for the luxury service being offered, we will recommend this hotel to our friends and family. read hotel review

Our flight left from Toronto at 3 a.m. and we arrived around 09:00 a.m. the bus ride from the airport was short and quite pleasant and when you get on the bus they offer you an alcoholic or non alcoholic beverage which is nice but take note that it is not free. The property in my opinion is very well managed and staff is quite diligent. The room was beautiful, very clean. We did have a small issue with our safe not opening one day and a technician came to our room and found that the battery ... was dying so he changed it. Food was in general plentiful and very good. The restaurant buffet I liked best out of all the a la carte restaurants because there is so much variety. I don't like seafood but my girlfriend does, she ate at the French restaurant and had the lobster and absolutely loved it. The Italian Restaurant was good however I found the lasagna to be a little salty. Service was very good, waitresses smiled a lot and were always friendly. The beach is absolutely beautiful, there is water aerobics and dance lessons on the beach daily. Staff that are in charge of daily entertainment and they are a lot of fun, there is also a small bar on the beach which serves a great drink of choice. The piano and lobby bar is where we got most of our drinks from and each night we sat out on the patio and enjoyed nightly entertainment. The bar is where we would get our cappuccino's every morning as we did not like the regular coffee, but the cappuccino's are great. We took the Havana/Tropicana day trip. The bus picks you up at 7 am and then you arrive back at your hotel roughly around 3 am. You travel into Matanzas and they stop at this huge bridge for pictures, drinks,shopping etc.oh and by the way the toilets are disgusting so be sure to bring hand sanitizer and your own toilet paper as you will have to pay the person at the door for it. Make sure you have change when you travel so that you can not only tip the washroom attendant but others as well. From there you will travel to old Havana and to a museum where you learn about their rum making and then to new Havana for shopping etc. All the while you are permitted to go off and take pictures. The Tropicana show is outdoors and is fantastic. Overall the sights, shopping, people and the show was well worth the trip. read hotel review

We have been to Melia Peninsula for the second time in august 2014, we've stayed at this wonderful resort from 17-01 September. If you want a laid-back holiday you have to go to this hotel, we don't have one complaint about this hotel and we don’t understand some posted reviews. The staff was very friendly staff and food was also good, very tasteful and with variety. Rooms were very well-kept, spacious and beautiful, we stayed in block 28 for honeymooners, close to the main pool and two minutes from the beach. The main pool is also very nice and large ..., kids pool is a bit remote and in full sun. The main pool was closed a couple of days for some technical problem, but we really didn’t care because we much prefer the beach. The animation team was also very friendly, especially if you remember that they work from dusk till dawn, 6 days a week. At night and during the day there are many nice activities and beautiful shows and of course the beautiful beach and the blue blue sea are on your doorstep. Definitely highly recommendable! read hotel review

We just came back from a weeklong stay in Varadero, Cuba at the Melia Peninsula Hotel. The beach was really beautiful. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. The food was good with lots of variety and different choices every day. Our boys loved, of course, the hamburgers and hot dogs available throughout the day. I enjoyed the cafe espresso's and cafe americano. My wife and my daughter enjoyed the mojitos, rum and beer. We all loved staying in a 2 bedroom family room, ideal for a family. The evening entertainment was very good. We especially enjoyed the live ... music. The service and attention we received from the staff was really top notch. I would love to come back soon, this is a great place I highly recommend it. The accomodations were very good and the staff was so friendly, we would definitely go back!

Our room was on the 2nd floor, we found it very quiet and a clean comfortable room. Front desk staff was professional and helpful, check in was fast and bellboy service quick. The a la carte restaurants were excellent our favourites were the Oriental and French, although we did try all of them. There was a good variety of choices for buffet breakfast and lunch - more than enough for a picky eater like me anyway. Although repetitive as all buffets are, the taste of the food was good. I was in a different country and I was not looking ... for gourmet meals.The beach is beautiful and well maintained and cleans, in spite of some guests not usingthe garbage cans to dispose of their litter and you will have no problem finding a palapa and beach chair. The beach bar is small but was adequately manned and we did not wait long for our drinks. İt was our first time in Cuba and travelling as a family we could not have picked a betterhotel. At the end we had a good time. read hotel review

The area is great. Small problems but in Cuba are completely normal. Here everything was very clean. The staff was friendly - but slow, but that is quite normal. Unfortunately, the food was tasteless and sticky. The ital. Gourmet restaurant simply awful. The evening shows very nice, but please be back take a seat because they know no lautstärkenregler. Always loosen it the ears wegpustet. The area in general is really appealing, short ways to the beach and very well kept. read hotel review

The area is very nice and well maintained. The facilities for cuban standards very good. You may simply no european standards expected. We found all the staff very nice and endeavored. The music at the pool was a bit annoying but there is the beautiful beach. We found the food awful but we didn't go hungry. When we needed a doctor, we had to even in the hospital call and the conversation to pay, but it is there simply so usually. At least the doctor and helped us.

Very good japanese restaurant. Staff and food was very good and with high maintenance value. In the run-up to christmas and after Sylvester the restaurant service was good. Between holidays unfortunately bad, as the hotel is fully booked and apparently no additional staff has been posted.

Sorry for the expression but it was really horrible. So little selection and the coffee was not edible. The milk was from milk powder made. Bread? Haha. The lobby bar was ok, but a Cuba Libre from 80% rum is? It didn't work. As the bar closed at the disco is, it is quite noisy, if a purely or out.

    We arrived around 10:00 p. m. in the hotel, as the bus (we arrived from Trinidad) a glitch had. At the reception we were friendly welcomed and were quickly checked in. It, they spoke english or spanish spoken. Since we only 1 night to have slept there cannot i only slightly above the hotel, one is however completely clearly, was the witch of TUI, so a bit by unfriendly at dealing with my complaint. Normally one can starting from 4:00 p. m. check-in, but since we only came later, you should at least expect the room cleaned, unfortunately, it was the opposite. Well is very pleasant to switch rooms at 11:00 p. m.. At least we have at the 24 hours bar which our erachtensssen get.

    The hotel lies directly at a beautiful sandy beach. We're sorry, but it is apparently usual against tip the loungers in the shade (you also need ) at the beach already at 7 o'clock mornings with towels to reserve. We have noted, that many of these are for 1 hour used. We had the feeling, these people also by the pool their towels had. No way to Varadero it was about 20 kilometer, since one considers oneself already, if one to the beach go into the city goes. Taxi costs about 10 cuc and the hop and off bus for the day, per person 5 cuc (this goes but also every hotel and it takes).

The beach is wide and clean. Our room was only approximately 30 meters from the beach way, so that the view very nice was. Large room with a large bathroom. The sea is clean, only not so turkis as other on Cuba. Altogether a beautiful hotel, the a few bodies once again a fresh coat of paint need would, but nevertheless without any problems ... recommendable is. read hotel review

In the pool we were not... Who needs the pool, if you a beautiful beach on your doorstep! :-). However the pool was really clean. From the pool you could by drinks at the pool-counter order.
