I really enjoyed my stay at this resort. The food was - for the most part very good, the buffet always had some grilled meats and good pasta. Breakfast was always delicious a crepe station and omelette station, loved the chocolate crepes! The 24h snack bar wasn't my favorite, one of the waiters there was a bit rude and they... More

I stayed here for my sister's wedding. Check in was ok but they cheat me on money exchange. The room had bugs, luckily I was babysitting, the person came about 2 a.m., and woke me up on time to find a cockroach coming on my pillow. I got room upgrade and that room was worst. The toilet didn't work, I... More

Excellent hotel, nice and helpful staff. Beaches in Santa Maria are to die for. White sand, well kept . The only cons are the beach chairs. They are not made for long time laying on them because the material is way to stretched and if you have back problem you will find them uncomfortable. Food in all restaurants is repetitive,... More

We stayed from 27.8.- 10.9. The first week was wonderful for swimming and the second week was so so due to water condition...The water was not quite. Anyway, the beach and the ocean on Cayo Santa Maria are breathless. The resort itself is a huge. I am impressed by variety of food served and how clean dishes are there. Non... More

Staff - most of staff are friendly, but speaks very little English. We are very lucky to have the same server, Georges each time we ate the buffet restuarant. He is the best and we tipped him very generously. Restuarants - there are only 4 a la cart restuarants, one buffet and two snack bars. The a la cart restuarants... More

Very nice hotel, beautiful palm trees and flowers everywhere, good service and an aaaaaaamazing beach! Although the room was very big and very clean every night little bugs would crawl in, which is very unpleasant and despite the cleaning staff washing the floors well, the next night the bugs would crawl in again...The only other little disappointments were the food...

Summary: This was my first time to Cuba and my first time to an all-inclusive resort. Though the buildings are older and the food was more like a 3 star quality, the beach and the staff made my stay a memorable and fun time! If I were to return to Santa Maria, it would definitely be my top pick. I'm... More

Was looking forward to go back to Cayo Santa Maria after having seen that beach last year for the first time... This hotel is not a good quality-price ratio, there is nothing special about it: rooms its true that the AC is deficient, the à la carte restaurants are not better than the buffet which is really varied, the cleanliness...
