Great family resort with friendly helpful staff. Food was not as good as our past trips but not bad. If you're planning to go make sure you take Tea tree oil with you. Mix it with rubbing alcohol or vodka (50/50) and spray it on yourself, bed (linens & towels) to avoid

We haven't been to an all-inclusive resort for years, but were pleasantly surprised by this one. The resort is beautifully laid-out with well-kept grounds centred around a beautiful lobby. We were a group of nine ranging in age from 7 to 77 and everyone enjoyed themselves

This is our second time to Cayo Santa Maria but first time at this resort. It is a bigger resort than you think especially walking to both beaches. Don't get me wrong, the walk is great but you can opt for a shuttle. The beaches are amazing! Staff - Food and Bar Staff -

Tuna at the Punta Pirata ... grey sauce ???
Extra bed for a kid
villas are nice too
There is also a great place on Santa Maria at the Pueblo Estrella. Our friend drops a bundle out there with their wider selection. We (8) bring home the limit for him.

Sunlover is correct, when you arrive if you upgrade then you are paying in CUC which is similar to US$. Also, if you use a credit card to pay the upgrade then the Cuban govt charges an upcharge for credit card use. Also, you don’t get the massage credit at the villas if you upgrade upon arrival. You only get it if you book direct to the villas. We always book direct to the villas, for us this is the best value.

Unless your iPad or cell phone is really old any plug in the villa is fine. Check your charger for voltage. Most are 120-220. If this is the case plug it in anywhere. I plug mine in all the plugs in the villa. Same with my camera charger. The outlets look round when you look at them but they are flat on one side. I have never used an adaptor for my devices. We have iPhone, iPad and a Samsung phone. All are fine. You will need an adaptor for any appliance or device that isn’t dual rated though. It will say on your charger what it is rated for.

Can you go scuba diving at this resort? And how does this work?
We have a friend that went scuba diving last year. You can arrange it from the hotel downstairs in the main lobby. Sunlover is correct, the scuba diving excursions leave from Las Brujas which is only 5 minutes from Ensenachos. Our friend went 2 or 3 times and saw lots of marine life. He is an avid diver, usually diving in Honduras.

"All of the rooms are spacious, with separate bathrooms and roomy closets large enough to hang up your clothes and lay out your suitcases."
"We had a young family and stayed in Building 33 which is close to the pool and water park."
"Choose the Spa package rooms if you want a quiet time"
"due to the layout of the resort all buildings are close to something. some walking good for you."
"family area quiet, spa area keeps the drunks contained fairly well."
