Melia Marina Varadero, Cuba

Year: 2014

I love Cuba, and especially Varadero.  This is a brand new resort close to the end of the peninsula.  It has 12 floors and you are either looking at the pool side or the Marina side
and both are great.  The Marina side has a Miami feel.  There are apartments also located adjacent to the main hotel.  These will be "no meals" next year as they were planning a lot of stores along the waterfront.  Although, the resort is across the street from the beach,
it is like being on the beach as the distance from the hotel is quite short and there is frequent golf cart service or you can walk in less than 10 minutes.  The resort has it's own
beach area with beach bar and a lovely restaurant for lunch as well.  The staff were great
and I would definitely go back here.  I would recommend The Level section of the hotel as it offers free Wi-Fi and an exclusive a la carte restaurant and bar and other amenities.
