this was our second visit to Las Dunas, we were there last year(2014) in April and we enjoyed it so much we went again this year (2015) in April as well. It's a great resort to relax, enjoy the beach, the pool and just de-stress. It's a bit far from the airport (1.5hrs) but if your looking to just relax... More

This was my first time visiting Cuba and this resort, and my partner's third time visiting the same resort. We chose this resort because of his past expériences, which had been good, and because there was an adult-only side of the resort which would allow us to relax. Well, the adult-only pool was swamped with children, most days, almost all... More

It was our first time to Santa Maria. Research helped us choose this resort. Very big (900 rooms). This meant there was a decent amount of walking to get from rooms to the central point of the resort. The transport on the resort was very minimal if you needed it. All in all it was a good vacation but we... More

My Husband and I were looking for a nice relaxing holiday at this hotel and we found it. We requested to be in the quiet adult section of the hotel and that is exactly what we got. The room was spacious, and had all the amenities we needed. However the air conditioning was not working properly upon our late arrival... More

Positives (summary): -Beach was perfect, this is why you come here! -Pools/grounds were very nice. -Spa was relaxing. Negatives (summary): -Service and language were pretty bad and we had a very difficult time with this. -Food is below average, even for Cuba. More variety is needed, although a couple of the a-la-cartes were good. -Entertainment was ok, nothing special. Positives... More
