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...

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...

Loved this resort. It was my first time to Cuba. No complaints. It's a big resort so the only thing I would say is that its a long walk to the Beach if you are in the roooms next to the kids pool. The Bus into town was only $5 and took you there and back as many times you...

The Melia Peninsula Hotel in Varadero occupies an extended area including a very nice beach with water sports available, five restaurants, a big swimming pool and a fantastic team of outsourced entertainers. Now, focusing on the management, the hotel is significantly understaffed. Maintenance was clearly behind schedule, so at the peak season (Christmas, New Year's eve), the hotel could not...
