Not sure why you keep posting your review about this resort,,,with the same content and also incorrect info,,seems as though you are on a mission of sorts. Your info was incorrect as this is adults only resort and maybe you were not the easiest person to please. This resort was wonderful, great location/beaches/ambience and service. The only thing they could... More

We travelled to the Melia Buenavista from April 10th to 17th. What an amazing vacation from start to finish. We were completely pampered by all the staff and especially our butlers, Yunny and Joel. If you want a resort where you can truly relax this is the place. We'll be returning. It Looks like "Fools Gold" has changed to "Miller... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Like many reviewers have already said it was quiet, well laid out and the staff were excellent. A special mention to our butler Gerardo who couldn't do enough for us. He went to a lot of effort to set up a romantic dinner in our room which we thoroughly enjoyed. I would... More

We spent a wonderful, restful week here in early April and happily recommend Melia Buenavista for an Adults Only all inclusive retreat. Our room was close to the Sunset Beach, one of the farther reaches of the resort but only 5 minutes from the restaurants and lobby bar. Great service and attentiveness to our room by Danielys, thanks. There are... More

Beautiful resort, rooms excellent, beaches beautiful and private, hard for taking walks because of slopes and sand. Breakfast and lunches were fine, dinners were not appealing, very limited menus. Very limited entertainment.

If you are looking for rest, relaxation and romance, this is the place to go. The resort is small and well laid out, the rooms are clean and spacious, and the outdoor shower is wonderful. It is easy to find a sun lounger by the pools or beaches anytime of the day. There is bar waiter service at the pool... More

Ok, we're from Toronto, we whine about the snow the second the first flake hits the ground but you've got to admit winter 2013/2014 was nasty for even the hardiest Canadians. We desperately needed to go somewhere warm and Cuba is great in April. We were looking for a small quiet all inclusive and that's what we found at MB.... More

My favorite things about this resort were: the Cuban people who work there, the small size, personalized service, the music provided by local performers/talent in the evenings, beaches and snorkelling, quiet tranquil setting. This resort was just what we wanted. First of all the resort size is perfect for us. 105 rooms means a small and personal resort. The clientele... More
