OMC bloggers share their experience at Melia Marina Varadero

A sunny beach paradise and a culturally rich country, Cuba is one of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean, and one of the most trending holiday hubs in the world at the moment. In order to provide tips for future visitors, blogger couple OMC (One Modern Couple), who have a personal feat to travel the world, recently posted their experience in one of Cuba’s beautiful Melia properties on their website, the Marina Varadero.

A lush beach resort that offers a range of experiences designed for people who love the sea, Melia Marina Varadero welcomed the excited couple for various days. Point by point, they explained the highlights of their stay.

Accommodations

Constructed around one main building, the resort comprised vast and lush grounds. OMC received a large, bright and clean room and bathroom which had both a bathtub and a large shower stall. The balcony offered a beautiful view of the marina.

Friends who travelled with them chose an apartment as an alternative room option. These two-bedroom flats comprise a family room, two bathrooms, kitchenette and laundry area as well as a private pool and workout area.

Beach and Pool

Known as one of the most stunning beaches in the world, Varadero fills its visitors with tranquillity and admiration as they look over at the white sand and pristine beach. It was easy to reach by the boardwalk and golf carts were available to transport guests. Though the couple preferred to stay most of their time relaxing on the loungers and cabanas in the beach, the swimming pool was also a great option.

Melia Marina boasts one large swimming pool with swim-up bar and 24-hour restaurant where entertainment and activities throughout the day are guaranteed.

Hotel restaurants

The couple agreed food at the international buffet was tasty and well-prepared, especially pizza which could be ordered with the topping of your choice. Five other restaurants offer fine dishes and a la carte service. OMC strongly recommend the Latin restaurant where both dinner and music are marvellous.

Service and entertainment

The friendly and attentive staff, who was always willing to help in any way they could, was one of the trip’s highpoints for the bloggers. The Melia Marina Varadero also surprised them with a plethora of entertainment and activities throughout the day and into the evenings. From beach and pool-side activities to evening shows by the marina, there was always something to do and see; the performances varied from magic to salsa dancing to animal shows. For dance lovers, the disco also blasted beats into the early hours of the morning.

Location and dining out in Varadero

To OMC one of the most wonderful things about this Varadero resort was how easy it was to get into town. By bus service, tourists can venture into the charming and animated streets of Varadero’s town, an opportunity to mingle with locals and take a look at Cuban’s everyday life.

Though the couple enjoyed the hotels’ restaurants, spicing things up in town was an experience they did not regret. After wandering around they visited one of local’s favourites, La Vicaria. Including beverages, an appetizer of cooked shrimp, as well as a pork chop dish and paella for mains, the bill barely made it to $20 CUC.

Overall impression

The couple sums up their enjoyable stay by stating:

“Melia Marina Varadero had a fast-paced feel with loads of entertainment. The ease of travel to Varadero was also a bonus with the Melia Marina as you are able to escape the confines of the resort and explore Cuban culture.”

OMC, who has also visited Melia Las Dunas in Santa Clara, ultimately agrees that their experiences at this hotel chain are certainly positive.

One of Spain's largest domestic operators of holiday resorts and the seventeenth biggest hotel chain worldwide, Melia Hotels International boasts 27 properties in the island, of which ten are located in Varadero. As tourism grows in the island, the company has racked up 14 million dollars in the first half of 2016 ad seeks to continue growing by improving their current services through installing Wi-Fi hotspots in every property.
