My husband and I spent 1 week at the Melia and it was our first time to Cuba. We were not disappointed. Huge resort and we were fortunate to stay in the Adults Only section not far from the pool. The resort overall is a little dated but clean, tidy and has everything you need for an inclusive vacation. We... More

This resort is an extremely large property to walk around. I don't usually mind walking around a large resort but if you only have one week you want to make the most of your time. Two-storey bungalows which means that none of the rooms have an ocean view. You can call for a ride but they usually don't come. The... More

This is an outstanding hotel: great staff, beautiful beaches, great restaurant and an amazing infrastructure (remember you are at Cuba). We stayed on several hotels at Cuba and this one was the best, I would recommend, specially the sunset ritual.

I visit Melia Las Dunas several times every year. The reason is because I cannot find an excuse not to go back, again and again. The food and restaurant variety is vast, and always fresh. The musicians always professional, but my hat comes off to Carlos (the sax player) who plays in the lobby before dinner, and then at the... More

My wife and I just returned from Melia Los Dunas last Saturday after a very satisfying holiday. The resort is a 2 hour bus ride from the airport at Santa Clara. We had a late flight so were not able to see the scenery on the way in including along the causeway. This resort is large and had all the... More

We went to Melia Las Dunas on the beginning of January. Traveled as a couple. It is a beautiful resort with breath taking beach. However, the biggest treasure of Las Dunas is it personnel. The Cuban people are amazingly friendly, honest, and willing to help. Special thank you to our housekeeper Eilen (we stayed at BW# 47) who kept our... More

This was our first trip ever to Cuba. I had done a tone of research on this and other resorts in Cuba for over a month prior to booking it at Melia Las Dunas. First off I will say I read over a 100 reviews. Some good and some not. What I can say to you is that there are... More

I've been to Cub once before - Varadero. This area is miles above Varadero, hotels are newer, cleaner and food is marginally better. That being said, it is Cuba, and the food is always terrible, and there's no such thing as a "real" 5-star in Cuba. The beach was magnificent, the lobby area was spectacular and lots of bars and...

We spent 8 marvellous days at Melia Las Dunas last April. Although I like to experience different locations and resorts each time we travel, I would be very hard pressed to return to Cuba and not go back to the Las Dunas. We have been to Cancun, the Mayan Riveria and the Dominican Republic and Las Dunas is my favourite... More
