I visited this resort May 2-7, 2014. As a travel agent, people look to me to make recommendations as to where they should go & stay. This is definitely on the go & stay list in my top 2 for Cuba.
This 100 room all butler resort is quaint, intimate and a little bit of paradise in the Santa Clara Cayos.
The rooms are huge, views are outstanding and the staff go out of their way to make sure you're taken care of.
The resort and rooms are exceptionally clean! The room attendants were amazing and creative.
I always have difficulty with pillows but they have every variety of pillow covered at this resort to improve your comfort level.
My butler Javier helped me complete some things in Cuba I was unfamiliar with but handled it professionally and with complete confidence.
This is a perfect resort for Honeymooners or couples just wanting to escape the rat race in exchange for peace and quiet.
I was in room 712 - Sunset beach room. Exquisite sunsets perfect for the romance in your life.
There are 3 beaches. West, middle and East. Food was great. You could have some buffet items for breakfast or a la carte if you prefer. I did use the room service on my departure since none of the restaurants had opened yet.
If you stay at this resort you can play at the 2 others if you like - Melia Las Dunas a 900+ room resort or Melia Cayo Santa Maria a smaller 300+ room resort. The shuttle leaves the hotel every 1/2 hour beginning at 10 am.
The staff and Sales Manager, Yuri were all delightful to deal with.
Thanks for making my well needed break a huge success!
