Excellent stay at this hotel. Room was standard room, spacious and very clean. Food was delicious- in particular the Japanese Rest and Fish Rest. Pool was great, loads of beds. Beach was so beautiful- it was a dream holiday:-)

We stayed at this hotel and we were very satisfied. The specialty restaurants are very good, you should take advantage of that service. The outdoor activities are fun and entertaining..... Daily night shows are very good, dance crew is very professional and dedicated. Juices and all drinks are good and the best part is that its all inclusive. Lobby sometimes... More

This hotel is a stinkhole. I know most properties in Cuba are old, dated and need maintenance, however old doesn't have to be dirty. Firstly the positive, the beach is amazing with water so crystal blue and warm. Best water I have ever been in. Now the negatives: - Hotel is supposedly 'all inclusive' with reservations required at the A... More

This Melia property is beautiful and the staff was very accommodating. The food was okay with the exception of Chef Roberto at the outdoor Paella stands. The best paella In the world. Ooooh muy rico!
