Eight of us, spanning three generations, from ages 14-76 years, had an excellent week. Investing in The Level was well worth the added expense; the room upgrades, the Level lounge, and the fantastic service of The Level staff elevated our rating of this resort to 4/5 "Cuban stars" (it would rate 3/5 outside of Cuba). the accommodations Rooms in The...

Comparing to the hotels you can find in Cuba, Melia Varadero ia a very good one. The rooms are big enough and very clean, almost all the rooms have sea view, the hotel itself has everything you need: restaurants, terraces, bars, live music, spa, beach, rent a car office,shops. By the way,be aware: in Cuba you have to book your...

The hotel is situated on a stunning location. Staff is attentive. Lifts were constantly breaking. The food lacks in quality and hygiene If you do not mind going out to nice restaurants in Varadero to skip the food at the hotel which by the way was paid for in the all inclusive package, it could be an option.

The hotel was beautiful and clean. The staff was very kind, professional and helpful. The beach is gorgeous, and the staff on the beach were very fun. My only suggestion is that they need more beach chairs (get to the beach early!) The food is amazing! We will be going back.

We stayed in the Royal Wing which was meant to have Butler Service and be exclusive. That was a mirage, as nothing worked...not the service and not the rooms. Simply bad organization all round and that included the really bad food - everywhere. We went to two other Melia hotels on our trip and this one was simply the worst!
