I am also looking at this resort. Ironically the "destination wedding specialist" never heard of it nor was it in her top 5 so that made me want to chose another travel agent as it is a popular resort. So now I am on the hunt to figure out what company to chose as a travel agent for all my guests.

I would love to hear from you afterwards as this is on my list.


Interesting she'd never heard of it. Even if it wasn't popular with brides it's a popular resort in Cuba and makes the top 10 list. I love Cuba. What else made your list? :)

    Yes, she never heard of it and then when I asked for quote anyway she came back with $2498 for a basic room in the off season. I said for 7 days? More than a year away? In the fall during hurricane season? So I am searching for another agent that is recommended by someone I know who has done many. I did not like her prices. She knew we wanted kids at the wedding as we wanted to not leave friends with kids out from coming, she recommended adult only resorts, this meant she was not listening. If I have a flew yellow and red flags before signing. They are out.


    Hopefully the next one works out!!

    We just stayed at the Melia Varadero and loved it. There was a wedding or two while we were there.

    Some others on the board married at the Ocean Patricia and the Iberostar Laguna Azul and Iberostar Varadero.

    When we booked the Melia Varadero for January the ocean vista azul wasn't even in the search results but as you said it's close so when we walked the beach to explore we saw it!!!!

    We loved the Melia Varadero. They have some great upgrades (the level) and we felt the food was fantastic. We really loved it. The gazebo was great too!!

    @ Hola2016

    How is your search going? We booked through Ana at Now Destinations - she has been so so wonderful :) Our final payment is due tomorrow and if it's anything like our deposit due date, she's going to be bombarded by our wedding guests!

    We've got our fingers crossed our resort is as lovely as it seems and I will definitely give a full report when we are back.
