Varadero Reviews Opinions Adult only Hotel, Excellent Entertainment, Views from Rooms, A La Carte Restaurants, Beach

No kids? The adults only Melia Las Antillas Varadero could be exactly what you´re looking for in Hotel. Guests must be over 16 with no exceptions. The four star Melia Las Antillas is one of Cuba´s few “suite only” resorts where rooms are large and impressive. Choose between sea and garden views from the 346 junior suites available or one of the 4 luxurious and bewilderingly impressive Suites. And this can be had at a reasonable price believe it or not because the Las Antillas Varadero is not particularly expensive when bringing into consideration the impressive rooms and all inclusive status the hotel offers. Categorized as a 4 star Plus, it’s unclear why the Melia Group have not simply labeled the hotel a 5 star because it lacks nothing available at similar properties touting the 5 star entrance sign.

Particularly impressive are the sea view suites which overlook the unmistakable white sand of Varadero and the distant Cayo Blanco Island. Food at this resort is impressive to say the least, the “Los Tainos” buffet is an massive spread of varieties to cater for all tastes. The fresh fish should be high on any fish lovers list also. For those with patience to book in advance there’s the exquisite “El Romántico” gourmet restaurant with an amazing array of international wines to choose from. Or you could also pre-book the “Don Peperone” Italian restaurant which is also excellent but not as good as the Romantico.For poolside snacks and also some quite elaborate cocktails try the “El Conuco” snack bar.

Close to Varadero´s “swim with Dolphins” Dolphinarium and, just down the street from the Main drag in Varadero and further along to the large shopping complex Plaza Americas, Melia Las Antillas sits on a gigantic six hectares of prime Varadero land right next to the beach.

The hotel offers 2 of the most elaborate swimming pools we´ve ever seen, sort of mixture of exotic gardens and spa with small bridges and archways running through the whole pool area. As an adults only hotel the Health Center and gymnasium is equally as impressive and ideal for those looking to keep active on this vacation. Due to the immense hotel grounds, the Melia Las Antillas even has a private jogging track which must be a first at any hotel in the Caribbean. Add this to; aerobic, archery, beach volleyball, tai chi, yoga, stretching, billiard, darts, football, motorcycle rental, petanque, table tennis, shuffle board and, it makes for a presumably intensively active holiday.


As mentioned, Melia Las Antillas at Varadero is an adult only (over 16) resort and as such caters for those couples or singles looking for adult entertainment 24/7. The discotheque is particularly good compared to hotels who do accept youngsters and definitely more international “disco” than others. Likewise, restaurants, bars and common areas of the hotel are specifically focused towards adult guests.


By and large, Melia Las Antillas at Varadero is a good hotel with plenty of pluses and very few minuses and well worth the 4star rate when in effect, it resembles in almost every way a 5 star property.

Hotel MELIA LAS ANTILLAS Varadero is one of the few hotels that do not require prepayment or deposit to Book.
