After reading all the fantastic reviews about this place we booked a six night stay as the perfect high point ending to our amazing honeymoon trip around Cuba. The perfect place to unwind and relax after spending 10 days travelling round and staying in various places along the way. Oh what a disappointment was in store for our last days... More

We decided to book up 3 nights here at the end of our Cuba holiday to have some R&R and treat ourselves. What a place to relax - an amazing room, massive bed, huge jacuzzi bath, outside shower and beautiful views of the sea from our balcony. Would easily stay again. My first all inclusive holiday and it was wonderful.... More

This is really a charming resort in Cuba. The welcome is very friendly and warm and the service is solicitous. The resort has a direct access to three beaches offering different amenities: one of them is appreciated for its natural landscape and possible bird watching, the second is excellent for snorkeling and the third is a long sand strip perfect...

The Melia Buenavista is a wonderful place to go if you're looking for something quiet and restful. It was one of the few places that we've gone where we could always find a chair at any of the pool or beach areas (none of those bozos who put their towel and a book on a chair from 6:00 am to...

This resort is very nice but caters to a very specific type of vacationer. If you don't care about food or adventure, then this is the place for you. The beaches are absolutely beautiful and the resort itself is so quiet it's unreal. I was looking for a place to completely do nothing and this was the perfect resort for... More

This was our fourth time to Cuba and it was out favorite resort by far. They call it the 'old folks home' but we absolutely loved the peace and quiet. When we booked the resort we somehow missed the fact that there was no dinner buffet so that took us by surprise. There are 2 a la carte restaurants here... More

This hotel was absolutely amazing from start to finish. We arrived around 11am after a flight from Havana to the local airport Las Brujas. Upon arrival, you walk into a nice, modern lobby with a smell of incense (if I could have taken that home, I would have). You sit down and check in whilst a welcome cocktail is handed... More
