Melia Península Varadero

Eén van de fijnste luxe resorts van Varadero. De bouwstijl doet denken aan de klassieke plantage huizen, opgevrolijkt door frisse Caraïbische kleuren. Het resort is ruim opgezet en de omliggende natuur werd zoveel mogelijk intact gehouden en draagt bij aan het karakter van het resort.

Vanaf € 94,- p.p.p.n. bij een 2pk Offerte Meer info



Impressies







Over Melia Península Varadero

Als er maar één woord mocht zijn waarmee dit resort te beschrijven, zou het ‘ruimte’ zijn. Die is zelfs doorgevoerd in de kamers die verspreid liggen over verschillende gebouwen. De kamers zijn groter dan de doorsnee hotelkamer en hebben een royale leefruimte, een uitstekende inrichting en een terras of balkon. Verre van doorsnee is ook het kleurengebruik en  de zonnige decoraties; van de ‘Meliá’ kamer wordt u al blij bij binnenkomst. Maar de echte ‘sol’ bevindt zich natuurlijk buiten. Het is aangenaam wandelen door de parkachtige omgeving waar veel valt te doen. Sportliefhebbers zijn hier aan het juiste adres: van tennis tot boogschieten, van kanovaren tot snorkelen. Diepzeeduiken is tegen een vergoeding. Er is een speciaal programma voor kinderen, inclusief watersporten onder begeleiding van instructeurs en er is een zwembad met kinder- en peuterbad. Dan de inwendige mens. Er is een keuze aan vijf eetgelegenheden; uitgebreide buffetmaaltijden en à la carte specialiteiten, snacks en hapjes. Een drankje  in de Piano Bar, aan de poolbar of in het swingende Salsa Café, de huisdisco.

Het schiereiland Varadero is de belangrijkste strandbestemming van Cuba. Het heeft een langgerekt, fijn wit zandstrand van ruim 20 kilometer aan een doorzichtige, blauwgroene zee. Voor de kust ligt een koraalrif met tientallen duikplekken, u kunt hier legio (water)sporten beoefenen. Strandliefhebbers kunnen rustig wegdromen op het prachtige strand. Het vertier is voornamelijk aanwezig bij de diverse resorts van Varadero. Maar ook in Varadero zelf zijn er diverse uitstekende restaurants en is er een royale keuze aan winkeltjes. Varadero is hoe dan ook een perfecte strandbestemming in aansluiting op een reis door Cuba of als strandbestemming op zich.

"Seems to be theme here..."

   21-02-2017
I had a great holiday in Cuba and I never expect things to be the same as "back home", so the issues I am listing here are more facts, than worries. Just remember that Cuba isn't Canada, five star is really not, don't stress out over little things, and have a good time. First a general comment - everything others have written about the hotel's maintenance is true. It is slowly falling apart due to lack of maintenance. That is very ad, because it isn't that old a place and must have been really great when it opened. second - and very important - credit union credit cards (Mastercard) DO NOT work in Cuba. You might as well try to pay with your library card. Lucky for me I had an old rarely used TD Visa with me, or I could not have paid for any of the tours I went on. third - the government bank has a money exchange in the hotel, and we Canadians really get screwed over on the rate 1 CUC = 1 US dollar plus commission) - but be absolutely sure, insist if you must, that you get enough 1 CUC coins from the cashier. They try to give you 3 CUC bills, those are simply too much for most tips which would be 1 CUC per day for the room, the occasional 1 CUC at a bar or buffet for good service, and maybe 5 CUC per peron at the al a cartes. And on that note - when you check in, take your bag to your room by yourself. The baggage guys are the only ones on site who are really aggressive about getting tipped, and you may not have changed money yet by the time they get to you, meaning way overtipping them in Canadian for the little they do. Here are some specifics: check-in - fine. The map they give you could use some help - for instance, the restaurants have names, but they aren't on there, plus mine had every language except English on it. Try finding the Cuban a la carte, apparently its' location is a state secret. Lobby is attractive if you ignore peeling paint and such issues. room - dated; mold on caulking; fridge very noisy; but pretty clean otherwise. Towels will start at 4, work their way down to 1 until you complain, then start to increase in number again. Don't expect stuff like kleenex, soap, etc to be replaced when used up, unless you ask. minibar refilling is highly erratic, plus 2 beer and 2 soft drinks kind of stretches the definition. Cleaning staff very nice, and towel arrangements on bed were fun. grounds - vegetation part was fine, they were working on trimming and cutting when we were there. Concrete walkways seemed fine; all wooden ones are a peril. The ones behind the Cuban restaurant (assuming you can find it) are roped off, they are ground level but rotted away. There are pathway lights for night time, but not a single light bulb in one of them - it is totally dark once the sun goes down. Watch out for any of the guardrails and posts, many posts have rotted off at the base and have either fallen over or are hanging by their ropes. Most bridges have nails sticking up, and loose boards, several with the ends rotted off. There is an island bar with two bridges going to it, but one has broken apart and isn't usable (noted in other reviews, apparently has been like this for a long time - how does management think this looks?) food - buffet is okay for a one week visit when you can mix in the a la cartes. There is virtually no variation in the food offerings. Anything that is set out, rather than made up right in front of you, will be at room temperature - not good for anything that should be kept warm/hot, like bacon or eggs; and not good for anything that should be kept cold, like butter, fruit, cheese, etc. A la cartes are a nice change, I would rate them better than the buffet in terms of quality. Others have suggested eating breakfast and lunch at the pool snack bar - it in fact is better than the buffets. drinks - generally among the most watered down i have had at an all-inclusive. Just drink more of them. service - slow at buffet and bars. They need more staff, and they need to properly train them. A la carte staff good, check in good, rooms friendly but I suspect limited in what they can do due probably to supply shortages. Baggage guys too demanding for tips when they do almost nothing to earn them (plus their delivery vehicles are wrecks on wheels, how's that for a first impression - windshields smashed, seats all broken, parts lying around). General maintenance on buildings - not done. A great resort is slowly falling apart and nobody is doing anything to stop it. Safety warnings - there are electrical issues at the hotel - often saw switches hanging off the walls, like in the French restaurant where it caused the lights to flicker. In rooms, plug in sockets are pretty warn out. More dangerously - they have these fake corbels under the roof edges, which make it look like the roof beams are sticking out - it is an architectural feature. Several are missing - fallen off - and I saw several hanging and will fall soon. Bad enough that a cubic foot of wood is going to fall three stories - but many are positioned over people's decks and building access paths - someone is going to get seriously injured by this. Transfers and tours - they are always late, sometimes as much as 30 - 45 minutes, even to the airport. Don't worry! Go onto Cuban time yourself and you will be fine. I know this sounds like I am describing the last place to stay at - but that might not be true. I met other people from other resorts who had similar comments about their places. Like I said at the start, if this is the Cuban standard, I can go with it. I'll stay somewhere else next time, but if I find other resorts have similar issues, then i wouldn't mind coming back - but I will sty away from bridges and corbels!

"Good hotel, food and great beach"

   20-02-2017
The property overall is very nice and offers good common areas and services. The quality of the food is good and staff is very accommodating. The beach is excellent and pool area in also quite nice. Rooms are spacious and well kept.

"Tired Resort, but great beach ..."

   18-02-2017
Visited this resort from Feb 1 - Feb 8, 2017 with friends. We booked Elegance package, however when we checked in, our room was definitely not as the ones advertised online. Rooms were very dated. We did get building 25 however, which is facing the pool area and not far from the beach, so good location there. Main complaint about this resort is that it is severely understaffed. Breakfast buffet not great, long lineups, staff in absolutely no hurry at all to cook or serve. Difficulty finding any clean tables which had cutlery on it. Servers non-existent in the buffet, or too busy chatting amongst themselves rather than serve you. Walkways at night are very dark. This hotel is certainly showing it's age! Yoyo at the pool snack bar is absolutely amazing! Definitely search him out if you visit this property. This hotel used to be TRYP peninsula, and some of the old signs are still around the property. Beach is great, however there is a large drop off from where the palapas are, versus the lower area. Watch your step!!! Otherwise, nothing much else to review here, I tried Varadero 10+ years ago and decided to try again, unfortunately I will not be returning there. I stayed at a Melia property in Cozumel, and this one certainly is sub-par!! Not a 5 star by any stretch!

"Awesome!"

   15-02-2017
It was a great Vacation, we had a blast! We went for a wedding and it was beautiful the staff did an amazing job. We really enjoyed our selves. Everyone we had interactions with were very friendly and sweet!

"Beach Is Great...Buffet gross...A solid 3 Star"

   12-02-2017
Stayed January 21-28th. Lovely grounds great for walking however not if you have nay kind of mobility issues, and the beautiful beach is very hard to access for anyone with walking difficulties. The paths need to be marked lite better and marked better, signs on ever corner showing where the room #'s are, hard to find especially and night and after a few. Maid service was okay, but wow could not get towels (hand) for the life of me....took about 4 days. No consistency with towels and re-filling of your mini bar. Pool entertainment was just music played too loud and inappropriate for a family resort. The buffet was absolutely gross even for Cuba avoid it!!! Pool hut is the place to get breakfast and lunch and supper at an A La Carte. I ate at Japanese, Cuban and Italian and all were very good, heard the French was good as well, the Beach Barbecue night was just okay, didn't try the lobster heard it was very dry. Staff for the most part are friendly and are obviously working hard, muti-tasking could go a long way... I think putting YoYo in a few different spots he could teach all the staff a thing or two...YoYo and Beatrice were the best! I would try another resort along this strip before returning to this Melia or unless I got a really good deal. Over all not bad...the fantastic weather helped!
