Meliá Peninsula Varadero

Parque Natural Punta Hicacos, Autopista del Sur , Varadero, Matanzas Province, 42200, Cuba

This upscale, family-focused resort has a village-like feel, with avenues of palm trees leading to white-clapboard, Key West-style buildings. The open-design entryway is pleasing, with classical columns, contemporary furniture, and naturally lighted interior gardens that offer a pleasant welcome. Classic rooms occupy the two- and three-story buildings; Grande Suites are close to the beach and have two bathrooms. Premium rooms are in an adults-only area, while the 10 family-friendly junior suites are close to the kids' pool and have two bedrooms, one with a single bed plus a bunk bed. All rooms, decorated in a peach-and-watermelon "Caribbean" style have walk-in closets. On the waterside, there are picturesque lagoons and three pools—two of them for kids—plus a baby paddling pool. The 400-meter-wide beach edges calm, shallow water. There are nine restaurants and snack bars to choose from, plus nightly entertainment and programs for both kids and teenagers.
