We went to Las Dunas May 4-11 of this year. When I booked it was a bit more that what I planned to spend on a vacation, but it was well worth it!!! Everything you need is on the resort so there was no need to go off resort. There was always something to do and the entertainment was great!...

First time at Melia Las Dunas and likely our last. The first impression driving into the resort was good, the floors were shiny, the building was open and it had a nice Caribbean/Cuban feel. When we got off the bus, there was only one person greeting the entire bus of people - this poor fellow seemed overwhelmed and only had...

Well... first of all let me get this out of the way. It is a nice looking hotel, the Lobby and the Theater and the Buffet are all very beautiful. The service is not the best but is consistent with the service at any other hotel. This time around at least that has improved. Now.... The room!!!! OH MY GOD......

The Resort itself is wonderful, pretty much the same as in October 2016. The room service/maid service was excellent. The beef dinner in the Romantico was fabulous, and the Beef dinner in the Italian was also fabulous. Breakfast was as usual cooked to your request, usually eggs, juice- fresh Juice, Fresh fruit and lovely Mango's. You have to ask for...
