Melia Las Dunas

Looking at booking here mid June.

Have been to Cuba before & stayed at iberostar daquri on Guillermo & loved it.

Few questions -

What drinks do they serve?

Is the beach really that small?

Also how many restaurants are there & can you only eat at them once / twice during your stay?

Do you have to book for these far in advance?

Thanks

They serve the same drinks as in most all inclusive in Cuba: mojitos, slushy drinks, pina colada, etc. Anything you want basically made with rum, vodka, gin or liquor.

The beach is really long, many kilometres and it's a great walk. Some times in the year, it's the really wide, but I never fond it to be small.

It depends on your tour operator.

It's not a big problem in low season like June, but if you want to have the restaurant you want for the time you want on the day you want, better to book it when you arrive.

Like I said, it depends on the tour operator you're traveling with. Some allows 2 a la carte per week, some 3.

You can see a list of restaurants and bars here, as well as other infos:

I'm not sure what my tour operator Thomas cook offer for reservations. I struggled to find any info regarding bars & restaurants on the their site. Will check again.

Thanks for the link.

Is alcohol available 24hrs? 24hr snacks available?

Yes, 24h alcool and snack. And I find the snack bar prettygood compared to many in other all inclusives in Cuba. You have the schedule of the different bars and restaurant in the link I posted.

As for TC, DivaGatesHead will probably be able to help you when she sees this tread.

If you go on the link Gengen supplied it lists all the drinking and eating places.

TC say it is 3 a la cartes per week, booked a week at a time .

You can book in the week block or try each day for that night.

Thank you so much.

Is there room service included too? If so what hours?

Sorry for all the questions found a last minute deal but hardly provides any information and want to book it in next couple of days.

Ok thank you.

I read on their website they did room service how strange. I saw no one had mentioned it so thought maybe it was wrong.

The rooms are serviced but not room service as in waiters and food.
