We stayed with kids June 24 to July 7. Customer service were kind enough to give us 2 communicating rooms, after both TRANSAT and MELIA told us they cannot guaranty this prior to arrival. Crazy. But once confirmed on site, this was good, made for a civilized stay. Beach: amazing, as always in CSM. Pools: amazing too. Service: very good,... More

We have just come back from this hotel. Having just come from Melia Cayo Coco we were expecting the same if not better considering the price costs more. The hotel certainly has nicer facilities, the beaches are amazing, the free wifi is a bonus and the rooms are huge with nice features like walk in out door showers, jacuzzi's and... More

June 14th - 21st, 2016. My husband and I really liked this resort. The big problem was the time of year we chose to go. The Melia Cayo Santa Maria has air conditioning in the a'la cart restaurants and your room. That's it. There is minimal a/c in the main buffet. The lobby & lobby bar are open concept, lovely...

I was happy to be back here again, March 12 to 19. Melia continues to improve food preparation. More attention is being given to keeping food hot, and clean, on buffet steam tables. Weather forecasting tip: Google Caibarien weather station-long range forecast. Caibarien is the town where the long causeway to the resorts on Cayo Santa Maria starts. True, it... More

We have recently returned from the Melia Cayo Santa Maria (June 10-17,2016). Once again it was a very nice and relaxing week. The weather was definitely on our side giving us plenty of time to enjoy the beach and pool. Seeing as it was low season palapas were always available. We requested a particular room via email before our departure... More

We stayed at melia csm last week in June. I can't say enough positive things about this wonderful resort. The staff go above and beyond customer service. The food service and cleanliness was so noticeable from other resorts we have stayed at. Food kept hot and cold...surfaces kept wiped. And sanitation kept good. The grill Chefs couldn't do enough for... More

I was at the Melia for one week in May 2016. The room was top floor with a slight ocean view. The weather was very hot and the AC did not seem to be keeping up so I asked for a technician to have a look. Some adjustments were made to the AC and it was better but only OK.... More

This was a couples get away for a week to our most favourite beach in the world. Our ideal vacation is laying on the beach reading a book and swimming in the ocean. At this time of year (late June) the ocean is as warm as the air and the beach is, as always, perfect. The resort was very quiet... More
