First time in Cuba! The resort is huge!! I was worried about the 1.5 hr bus ride from airport to resort but you what? It wasn't that bad. Ice cold beer and Jose made it fun and pointed out a bunch of stuff for us. Resort was nice. Beautiful flowers. Our maids were awesome. Different towels in animals and designs...

This was our first family vacation (with kids) outside of Canada. We had a great time and lots of fun. The resort was very big with lots of walking. The rooms were a bit dated and can use some updating. The food was very good but the buffet could use more variety as it seemed to be the same everyday....

Once again, this resort did not fail to satisfy. It was a beautiful week with lots of sun and heat and the staff was incredible as usual. Food was amazing and there was a full abundance of activities day and night! Kudos to the student Reidel, the server by the Relax Pool who came around serving us Margaritas and Reidel...

Visited Feb 6 for 1 week. exceeded my expectations. I went with reduced expectations as Ive read the reviews about water issues, food, line ups in buffet etc.. Rooms: Decently appointed, we had a premium room building 44, its legit about 30ft from adult pool which was super convenient. People say the resort is big, well it is but everything...

Hubby and I took a last minute trip to this property from February 7-14th, 2017. We were a bit nervous after reading some of the comments, but they did help us prepare. We did arrive late (around 10:30 pm) but we took one of the little shuttles to our room. We were in 6416 on the adult side main level....

Departed Toronto ontime and Sunwing had us down to land in Santa Clara almost 20-25 min early. A Very good flight. Thru Santa Clara airport quickly and onto the Highway Coach bus (with washroom) for the 90 min drive to Cayo Santa Maria. It is a fairly smooth ride .. mostly paved roads. Arrived at the resort ( Melia Las...

It was my first time in Cuba and I am counting down the days until I get to go back there! The grounds are beautiful...the food is spectacular...and the staff are the absolute best.

Let me start off by saying that Cuba is Cuba and you really do have to remember not to have any expectations. If you've been to a Melia in DR don't compare, this is Cuba!

This is a large resort with a lot of walking which we enjoyed, however for someone with mobility problems it might be difficult to get around. There are carts that can transport you but as we never used them I don't know if there is a regular schedule. We stayed on the adult side and were on the 2nd floor....
