Western Cuba Hotels

Meliá Las Américas


  • Has some of the best amenities of Varadero properties
  • Relatively calm atmosphere
  • Decidedly golf-focused because of its proximity to the course


  • Atmosphere is a little staid but not stuffy
  • Exterior of hotel needs refurbishing

Fodor's Review

Strictly a resort for grown-ups, Las Americas overlooks the Varadero golf course with its small lakes on one side, and a postcard-perfect beach on the other. Built in 1994, its "modern" architecture is already a little dated, but the rooms are spacious and impeccably maintained, decorated in flattering shades of peach. Rooms on the third and fourth floors have the best views. The bungalows have recently been redone and offer separate living rooms with large flat-screen TVs. If stairs are a problem, choose a ground-floor bungalow instead of a second-story one. The hotel's air-conditioned, marble-floor lobby has lots of comfortable, plush seating. Outside, you can cool off in two large and two smaller pools, or head to the 250-meter-wide beach, which is simply gorgeous and serene, minus any children under 18. Guests can dine at four à la carte restaurants—Japanese, Caribbean, International, and Italian—once each during a week-long stay. The golf course is one of the biggest attractions here, with special, all-inclusive rates for guests and free golf clinics by visiting pros.
