Hotel Meliá Península Varadero, formerly Tryp Península Varadero, stands out for its location at the far eastern extreme of the peninsula, on what once was a protected lake – Laguna Mongoncito - on a beautiful stretch of beach.

The whole complex is tied together by a series of wooden decks and bridges and concrete walkways passing over ponds and skirting a large lagoon.

It is very family orientated, offering a good children’s area, which is in fact a virtual amusement park.

Its five hundred and eighty one rooms are housed in twenty villa complexes of two and three story, spread amongst neatly landscaped pathways and boardwalks.

(Some guests find distances between rooms, lobby and swimming pools too long, while others enjoy the walk and the exercise).

Rooms are spacious, they feature one king or two double beds, and bathrooms are also large. But they are tired and need renovations. Some guests complain of bad smell in them, others about pillows and many about lighting, insufficient in rooms as well as in the rest of the hotel.

It is a beautiful property, no doubt, but one shouldn’t expect the facilities and services of a 5 star hotel since it’s badly maintained and food is definitely not up to this ranking.

Meliá Península Varadero is near Plaza América shopping and convention center and to Varadero Golf Club so the resort offers its guests many golf-related services including: golf coordinator, golf package with green fee discount all year round, and storage of golf clubs is included.
