Had a very enjoyable time at this property. Very courteous staff. Staff at pool, especially Randy, who led the activities with his team, and Yandry, who looked after the pool, were outstanding, this property is very fortunate to have staff of this calibre. They are to be commended for their professionalism, kindness, and willingness to always help guests, no matter... More

This is an amazing resort and I truly enjoyed my stay there. The beach alone is fantastic, its close enough to walk and the water is pretty calm and clear.The hotel is a little far from the airport which was a little disappointing. The service here is great, all the staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel grounds are kept... More

We stayed July 19-26. This is our fourth trip to Cayo Santa Maria and our first stay at the Melia Las Dunas. The food is absolutely amazing here - the snackbar blew my mind! Frank at the buffet was a gem, we made sure to try to sit in his area each time we went. A la carte restaurants did... More

I had came back from there 2 days ago. It is a massive resort. There are 2 sections (family and adult). HOTEL ROOM- Pretty clean overall. The maid kept it tidy. It was pretty spacious for a standard room. Make sure to bring an adapter because they have 220 volts (and North America is 110 volts). We stayed in bungalow... More

First thing everyone needs to keep in mind before I start my review is that you are travelling to Cuba - not a 5 star resort in somewhere like North America. That being said - myself and my sister went there from August 14-21 and had a GREAT time! The resort itself is definitely massive but we never had an... More

We don't often travel to all inclusive hotels, but we really needed to kick back without spending a fortune on Riviera Maya. Overall we loved our vacation! We will be back for sure! Room: It's Cuba, this definitely a 3 star room at best with a 2.5 star bed. Our linens were clean and if you leave a little tip... More
