We chose this resort for our honeymoon because it had an excellent rating from our travel agent for Cayo Santa Maria - and now we know why. The butler service was phenomenal. Ours went out of the way to source real Coca-Cola for my spouse, and not to mention put together a wonderful in-room dinner on our last night.... complete with a spanish musical trio! This is the place to go for couples (it's adults only), to enjoy quiet times together and relaxation in style. Main pool area is like an oasis, the bartending service is exceptional, the sunset saxophone player on the beach incredible, the restaurant service is excellent as well. We had to give the food only an average rating, but to be truthful the seafood, fish, soup, bread were excellent. Steak and beef were lacking, but I think this is typical for Cuba. We were also disappointed in breakfast, especially the lack of fresh fruit.
As long as you approach your Cuban destination without top notch meals as your priority, this is the Perfect Location!
