My wife and I went to Melia Buenavista November 11th till the 18th 2012.
After never being in Cuba before it was a very nice experience. The weather at this time of year wasn't the greatest, it was still nice everyday. But not very hot.
The rooms were great, large spacious and beautiful. We did have some issues with the Hot Water in the outside shower. (it didn't get hot enough).
But our Butlers (Lucas & Javier) took care of everything for us. Also, Ernesto (the manager) was extremely friendly and welcoming. (gracias por todos)
The food was great, drinks great the staff amazing. The bar staff at the outside bar were all super friendly and helpful. (Thanks Yaromil for everything) I could trust those guys with anything. I would defiantly suggest this location for everyone. If the weather was a little nicer then it'd have be completely perfect.. My only note to travellers, bring all the medications you could possibly need. (because none can be found there)
Also, after travelling with the Bus from resort to resort you'll see why Melia was the way to go.
Thanks everyone there for everything!!!
