I went with my friend to Cayo Santa Maria , Cuba and stayed at Melia Las Dunas for one week end of march 2017. It was my third time in Cuba, and my best time out of all 3 times ! We both absolutely loved our experience. To start with the beaches were incredible, the turquoise water was beyond expectations....

First, I would like to say I have traveled to Cuba numerous times and stayed in hotels from a 2 star to 4. This hotel has been by far the best for rooms and food. Not so for location, unless you are strictly looking for a relaxing getaway on the beach or around the pool. We traveled as two couples....

This was our second time here. We really enjoyed our week at Melia Las Dunas. The beach is wonderful and you can get good food at many of the A La Carte restaurants. Rooms were a little crampded and our AC didn't work well. Despite that we really enjoyed the pool and the lounge. It was great that the families...

Really enjoyed the time there. We went for 10days and had great weather. The beach is small (narrow) and need some walk getting there. Pool was fine, but we prefer real beach. Food ok, but we had better some other resorts. Kids club is excellent, nice and carrying staff. The room was great; clean, nice amenities, but other friend's room,...

My husband and I travelled with friends. It was a lovely time and it was our second trip to this resort. We returned because of the staff, people and beach. We certainly enjoyed the Romantico a la carte. The buffets always had many choices. We didn't have hot water at one point but it didn't bother us. The staff did...

This is the second visit at this hotel. Same as last time, this resort has some established values (staff experience for example) but also it has become outdated. We had some issues until we were given a decent room. Furthermore, there were times of the day when there was no warm (not hot) water at all. Also, the towels and...

Just got back last week and we had a great time! We went into this vacation deciding to just take everything in stride, so yes there are a lot of things that the resort could improve on but none of that even remotely ruined our trip.
