This is our second time back. First time was over 5 years ago. Beach is fantastic, food just ok, lots of options for dining. The sit down restaurants are much better then the buffet for dinner. The rooms are very basic and in need of updating. The hotel is getting a bit tired and could use some renovations. It's very... More

Travelled here from April 8 to April 16. Overall it was a good time. Went with my family for my dad’s birthday. Since we are used to going to Bahia Principe Ambar in Punta Cana, the resort definitely didn’t live up to that same level. But still, this is a great resort, especially for the price you pay. Pros: -Clean... More

We travelled to Melia las Dunas in March. The hotel is ok, nice staff, nice beach, but what killed it for us was seeing coackroaches in the buffet(and was traveling with an infant). Luckily we saw the coackroaches the second day at breakfast, so we stopped eating there and chose to go to the grill and snack bars where food... More

If you want an honest review continue reading....place is amazing. Beach is comparable to Grace Bay Club in Turks and Caicos. That is huge. Compare one week in T&C and to here and you will book right away. Resort is large and modern and well taken care of. Food is great. Staff are all friendly.I would only say the negative... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this resort having heard that Cuba's resorts are not up to par with other Caribbean islands. Our room was bungalow 28, top floor and was very comfortable and cleaned daily. We were central to the lobby, buffet, pool and beach... loved our location. Group of 8, moms and daughters. The beach was... More

Loved the Cuban people, food and beach. I enjoyed working out everyday to Randy's Pilates. Thank you for your hospitality I will certainly love to make another trip there. April was a good time to go, not to hot and seems to have less of a crowd then the January February months.
