We just arrived home late last night from Melia las Dunas, Cayo santa Maria. Willing to answer questions about the resort, had a great time. The food was good, however spoke to a lot of people and they did not enjoy the food. The trick is to explore the whole resort and you will find tons of variety. Did not enjoy the buffet but to be honest I never do. But I did find good things to eat in the buffet, I just do not care for buffet style eating. The resort even had poutin, the sauce and cheese was really really good. The last day they must have ran out of fries because they made the poutins with kettle chips, and it still was good.
Yes the towels had rust stains and holes sometimes but that did not bother me at all.
The resort was big and very confusing signs so we did get lost a few times, but eventually figured the resort layout. We got good service overall, but we are easy going. Again a lot of people complained about the lack of service and comparing things to Jamicia and Mexico. I have only been to Cuba for a sunny vacation, so my expectations are not high. I will right a full review later once I have more time.
