We have three children ages 15, 13, 10 and wanted a resort that had something to offer each of them. My wife and I researched several all inclusive resorts for families in Cuba and decided after reading a lot of reviews ( good & bad ) to give the Melia Las Dunas a try and we were very glad we...

The resort is very huge with lots of amenities - beach, swimming pools, buffets, restaurants, bars, snack bars, etc. Rooms are very spacious, well decorated, and very clean. Staff is friendly. Beach water is stunning!!!!

This is actually our second visit to this resort and both experiences were amazing. I am specifically reviewing the spring trip and the wedding we attended. The wedding itself was beautiful and well organized, flowers spectacular. The music was provided by the couple. The couple was given a number of options for the ceremony location-all of them very nice. After... More

As my second time visiting Melia Las Dunas (first time in March 2014), I was pleasantly surprised with the overall improvements to the hotel. I travelled with a friend (17 yrs old) and her parents. ROOM- For the most part, the rooms were average for Cuba. If you can't stand insects, request a room on the second date when you... More

I know there have been many reviews on this hotel but I thought I would add my reflections on my stay that occurred between May 29th to June 7 2015.

I will say that need some renovation in the rooms, all bathroom peaces are rusted not well conserved, mosquito infestation, even though that area was fumigated, mosquito's were more than uncomfortable. Overall very good hospitality, same issue with ice as other hotels, good entertainment.

This was our second visit to the Las Dunas, our first visit being in March 2012. Once again, we were satisfied with our stay. Our room was very clean, daily room cleaning more than met our expectations. All of the employees (restaurant servers, bartenders, etc.) were very helpful and always polite and eager to please.

This was my 3rd time visiting Santa Maria. This is the place to be if you prefer hanging out in the ocean & on the beach. The beach, while small, was always clean & picturesque. The water was just perfect. The rooms are dated & older, but pretty standard for Cuba. The room was always stocked with soda & water.... More
