Evan and Edyta, London, ON - (trip to Varadero Cuba)

Three couples in their early 30s stayed in the Melia Las Antillas, Varadaro, Cuba in a junior suite superior ocean view rooms. The flew Sunwing from London, Ontario. Here is Evan's review:

It started off rocky when we got caught in the elevator upon and arrival and we were skeptical to say the least but starting the next day and throughout the rest of the time it was amazing. We met many fellow travellers and created special bonds with the staff. The beach and grounds were clean and the food was not as bad as many say in the reviews. I do not think an upgrade is needed like we had. You can pretty much get anything at anytime and everyone is treated equal. There are also no wrist bands so I think to save a few bucks it will not make a difference in a stay there.

We enjoyed Cuba as a whole very much. All our friends really enjoyed it as well. I do not recommend the bus tour to Havana. The sun wing repw as not very informative and rushed through things without any interest on the tour. We made our own fun though so it wasn't too bad. I would recommend a private tour.   

The flights were good. Wish Sunwing had more seating for people like myself who are over 6'. We checked in the night before and the few they had were already gone. All in all the service and flights themselves went smoothly.

Overall we give it a thumbs up. The Melia although older and in need of repairs did not disappoint at all. I give it the 4 stars it states it is. 

I want to go to Varadero
