All inclusive resort on an impoverished island...tip well. You'll be treated like King or Queen. Don't be naive to think you won't be with out it. When I mention "tip well", I referring to often. Not a lot but not always. The staff greatly appreciates it & it shows. The facility: New, Modern, Western resort style. The food: Doesn't match...

This hotel is superb, we upgraded to the better suites and it was closer to the beach. The beach by the way is one of the best I've ever swam in, warm, sand bottom, calm. The restaurants and entertainment were great. Felt safe there. The only one thing is there's not much to do outside the resort. But If you're...

I just returned from a 1 week stay with my Granddaughters. We were booked in at the Melia Las Dunas and Sunwing called to switch us to the Cayo Santa Maria. They also provided a few perks to us for making the switch, along with full access to both sites. In short we were in Cuba! So Yay! The hotel...

Ninth time to Cuba, third time to Cayo Santa Maria, first time in Melia. If you are a beach bum like I am and my son is, you will enjoy the best beach available in the known universe (IMO), with lively volleyball court and enough shade and loungers for all. Guest-wise it was a healthy mix of families, pairs, teenagers,...

We arrived yesterday after one week stay at the Melia Cayo Santa Maria, we have decided to stay there after reading reviews here and what a pleasant surprise. We had an amazing time! The hotel is very clean. If you go to Cuba expecting that you will find super luxurious hotels, do not go to Cuba. This was my third...

Resort is nicely laid out. Not too big and easy to find your way around. Friendly staff and good facilities. Lacked entertainment especially for the kids. It's supposed to be a kid friendly resort, but nothing to show for it. Food is okay. We aren't very picky eaters, so we were able to find something to eat everyday (pizza at...
