    Anyone used this resort??
    We had glowing reccommendations from our travel agent but my finance read trip advisor and is not so sure.

    Welcome!
    No recent brides that I can think of. If you use the search bar above you may find something and also make sure to check out the reviews section.

    We had a couple I can think of - ocean Patricia, iberostar Varadero and Laguna azul

    I just got home from our first anniversary trip to Melia Varadero. It was very nice. There was a wedding while we were there. The outside area is beautiful but it rained so they had to move it inside. They did a good job decorating the ballroom for her.

    Good luck.

      Thank you. I did search and there was one glowing review, however it was a few years ago!

      @Jennal412  One thing I'll add.... and a lot of the brides here have had the same concern - I would take what's on Trip Advisor with a grain of salt. it's a simple fact that you can't please all of the people all of the time, and some people just have nothing better to do with their time than complain. Unless every single review is absolutely horrible, then I would ask your travel agent if she has sent any other wedding groups there and if they would be willing to provide a review.

        My travel agent is actually sending a group of 300 there this year. And my hair dresser today told me she went last year and loved it!

        Def trust the reviews of the people you know over trip advisor as Ann said. I scour those before choosing a resort and sometimes laugh after at what people complain about :) let us know what you decide

        @Jennal412  I would go with those reviews. That says a lot more than people complaining on trip advisor. And yeah what Kim (@calgarybride2015) says...
