Located on a pristine island, ideal for total relaxation. Beautiful natural surroundings, with a variety of plants and flowers from tropical to desert like. The dunes and the flora remind you of an earlier time. For example, the white wooden pathways leading to the beach were very East Coast and quite romantic. The food, service and accommodation was all very... More

This is a very difficult review to write as I suppose we are all looking for something different in a vacation. Honestly the beaches are gorgeous with the most beautiful white sands and turquoise water with only one panini choice at the snack bar on the beach; with ham or without it and im uncertain what type of cheese (personally...

We went with friends and had a good time. We were able to relax and we have been to Cuba before so we knew what to expect. Food wasn't bad but they were always out of something. You had to have 3 choices in mind because you would likely get your third choice. We ate at the Cuban restaurant and... More

Second trip to this resort in seven years. We enjoyed it both times! Rooms were clean, my family stayed in building 36. Food is hit or miss. however no-one went hungry in our group. Ages 3-40. Most of the staff is friendly, often tough with the language barrier. We never had to wait long for anything at the bar at... More

Before going to Las Dunas we read some reviews and found them to be quite unfair. There were a few things that weren't perfect,but overall this represented great value.We were there for two weeks and had an opportunity to eat in most of the a la cartes except the Cuban one. All were good! Buffet's were similar to other resorts... More

We visited the resort January 20-27, 2015. We would definitely return as we were met with 1st class hospitality from the moment we arrived. The staff were very courteous especially Hector the grounds keeper. It's people like Hector and other staff you'll meet that will make your vacation so relaxing and memorable. The food was good, beer was cold, and... More
