Resort Details

Melia Peninsula Varadero

Varadero, Cuba

Very popular with Maritime Travel clients, this lovely resort has built a solid reputation for quality service and family fun. A top family resort with exceptional kids programming.

“Just a 30-minute drive from the airport, this resort is located on a wonderful stretch of beach where you can walk for miles. The rooms are a good size with large bathrooms — we had a ground floor room, which was near the pool area and not too far from the beach or restaurants. The pool area can be busy at times, but the pool is big enough not to be overcrowded and there are lots of lounge chairs available at any time of day.”

– Heather McDonald, Maritime Travel counsellor, Clocktower Plaza, Kingston, ON
