Well first time writing a review and also this was my first winter warm weather trip. I was here end of February 2013 - beginning of march 2013.
Previously before booking this trip I did a lot of research into the location and resort. i would like to thank everyone who wrote an insightful review on trip advisor, I'll try to provide one myself.
I loved this trip from the moment I stepped off the plane in Santa Clara, the bus ride was insightful and I enjoyed the brief history lesson along the way.
Food: was very good and plenty of options, you will not go hungry. My highlights where the Italian a la carte, pizza at the place by the family pool, ice cream parlour, paninis on the beach, the international buffet. Also enjoyed going to the beer gardens mid afternoon for a couple cold bottled beer(becks, corona and cristal) I preferred the cuban cristal.
Beach: stunning!! as for my first time at a warm destination the beach and water where everything like I imagined.
Service: Room was cleaned daily and towels where changed when we requested them. Bartenders at the lobby bar made some of the best drinks around and after supper it. was the place to be for a cuban coffee and to listen to some music and entertainment later on.
Some minor glitches upon arrival, our room wasn't ready when we arrived and had a mix up with the bell boys over the luggage. No big as deal as I had change of clothes in my carry on so we went down and had a drink and some lunch, when we where done all was sorted out.
In closing I would definitely go back to melia las Dunas as im now hooked on making a point on taking a vacation mid winter. I Just don't know when I'll be back in that part of Caribbean, so many places in the Caribbean to see! However I wish I was there at melia las Dunas listening to that salsa lesson song!!! Haha
Thanks for giving me a tremendous trip at a very good value!
