We have stayed at this resort twice and just booked our 3rd trip to this resort. I am really disappointed that its only rated 3.5 stars on TripAdvisor. It definitely deserves a better rating than that! Staff is wonderful and the grounds are beautiful. The beach is spectacular. People have to realize, it's Cuba - you have to lower your...

Not a 5 star but it's Cuba not Mexico. Good standard 4 star in my opinion. Minbar not always refilled, mint not available for 5 out of 14 days, staff say it's issues with deliveries etc. This was prior to Castro death and Americans being allowed so I'd expect them to sort all the issues out eventually.

Third time at the Melia Peninsula. Surely a good 4 star hotel. We've been satisfied again with the resort and all the services. Staff was great too. One of the best food in Cuba for sure. Constant and good food quality. A lot of the critics on this forum are unjustified and mostly brought by travellers expecting far too much...

Food and drinks below average. You don't get towels to your room. Minibar is refilled occasionally. Tourist info in a lobby is a joke. Rooms are average. Save your money to Havana. Beach is clean and sand is white.

Teenagers can survive without wifi! After 5 days here they both enjoyed old fashioned holiday experiences. Eating too much good food, excellent snorkelling (well worth paying 20 CUCs to get out to the coral on catermeran) and lounging in the sun reading. 5 days is plenty of time to enjoy this hotel but in keeping with this area generally there...
