Melia Las Dunas in Villa Clara, Cuba
The first thing that will surprise you about the Meliá Las Dunas is its exotic offer of bungalows with sea views. The Meliá Las Dunas provides modern and welcoming rooms for two people, individual use and for multi-occupancy. There are 5 different types of rooms, located in the two different areas: one for families and the other quieter area for adults or couples, and distributed amongst 2 storey bungalows with pretty views of the gardens and the sea. Their finely decorated interiors and luxury facilities ensure the enjoyment of an unforgettable vacation.
Spend your holiday in one attractive resort with a spacious lobby decorated in typical Cuban tropical colours, beautiful water features and palapas which leads into a unique gastronomic and cultural boulevard with a main square, and then onto two different and elegant spaces: one for families and another quieter area for adults and couples, all with a retro fantasy feel, where you will fall in love with the sea breeze. You will have a more than 15 miles of beautiful white sandy beach with calm turquoise waters; a perfect place for nautical sports. Ideal for catamarans, pedal boats and windsurfing, at your disposal at the hotel nautical point.

Reviews for Melia Las Dunas
We are a family of 3. It is our 5th visit to MLD, but the first one in summer time. The flight on Cubana air was OK - on time both ways, they served a complimentary meal and soft drinks, no entertainment on board but you can bring your own device. The check in was fast, the guys at the reception desk were very nice, polite and they accommodated our request for a room in a block close to the buffet and the beach. The beach is now extremely narrow, the majority of palapas have disappeared and it is quite complicated to find a spot in the shade - playing the towel game and/or tipping the guys on the beach (they all wear white shirts and white pants) The hotel had numerous local guests - at the hotel for the day only. This made the buffet at breakfast and lunch super busy. It is disappointing to see people leaving the restaurants with bags full of food, or hiding champagne bottles, glasses and cutlery in their towels, on their way out. The two shops on site do not have price tags for cigarettes, and they are overcharging tourists. (i.e 1 pack of Hollywood, charging 2CUC when the real price is 1.4 CUC). I had a similar experience at Pueblo MLD, but when I asked the vendor if she is sure that the price is right, she immediately excused herself that she is new and not sure about the prices - but again there were no price tags. At the end she sold me the cigarettes for the correct price. Other guests that visited the hotel about the same time have reported that they fell ill with diarrhea, and we are no exception. Upon our return in Canada we were treated with antibiotics. Overall impression is that the quality of the service has declined, and I'm not sure if we will return to this resort.

We have travelled to Cuba on five different occasions and this was our second visit to this resort. We were at Melia Las Dunas for a week in July 2017 and we were very satisfied with our recent stay. Our kids and we enjoyed the resort so much that we decided to go back next winter. Our two rooms were large with a beautiful view and well maintained by Maria, our housekeeper. Many of the staff from last year were still at the resort and they welcomed us back so warmly! Ramon, the manager, was extremely accommodating, and fulfilled all our requests promptly. We enjoyed the entertainment immensely, especially the live music clos to he pool. Just the same, we thoroughly enjoyed the lovely resort, the pristine pools and the beautiful beach and ocean! We will definitely return.

Not Enough characters to use here, but this is the hell that we experienced over the past 7 days at this so called 4**** resort.....Air Transat pay attention!!!!! Day 1 through 7 - "superior room 0627".....ya right!!!! - Broken air conditioner repaired 4 times - Broken shower head replaced with another broken shower head - Was told daily to keep my plastic cups for drinks all day as they were always out of stock - NO pool towels available for 4 days straight - fridge in the room repaired 5 times - all shower towels and bedding had stains on them (blood??) - as expected, bedding not changed ever, and slept with all these stains - WORKER SEEN COLLECTING USED AND DISCARDED PLASTIC CUPS BY THE POOL AND PLACED AT THE BAR FOR RE-USE.....WITNESSED - PLATES, FORKS, ETC....CONSTANTLY DIRTY - WORKERS USING DIRTY DISH TOWELS TO CLEAN TABLES, PLATES, COUNTERS - FOOD POISONING SUFFERED BY MANY INCLUDING MYSELF AND 10 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER - PEOPLE WERE NOT FRIENDLY EXCEPT THE REPAIR GUY AT THE END....FELT SORRY FOR US AFTER A WHILE - GUEST SERVICES DIDNT CARE TO LISTEN TO ANY OF MY CONCERNS ON MY LAST DAY TO MAKE IT BETTER FOR THE NEXT TRAVELLER.....JUST WALKED AWAY I CAN GO ON, BUT WHATS THE POINT....IF YOU STILL ARE THINKING OF GOING HERE AFTER THIS REVIEW, AND WHAT WAS DISCUSSED AMONGST OTHER TRAVELLERS AND THEIR EXPERIENCES, THEN BE PREPARED!!!!! I'm normally a simple person, but when I cant get clean towels or a clean plastic cup to drink out of daily, you tend to lose your patience!!!!! Good luck to anybody who decides to go here......be afraid, be very afraid!!!! STILL PISSED!!!!!! AIR TRANSAT.......PAY ATTENTION HERE!!!!!

I went with my family ( 3 kids) in Melia las Dunas last week . it was so bad. no towels for 3 days or plastic cups. The hotel was fully booked but there is not service enough to serve all guests. bad smiling in rooms, very poor furniture, a lot of insectes in the room. I am very disappointed .

Disappointing Very Disappointing, room's weren't clean. 2 days with no bath towels or hot water, and 3 days with no beach towels. I know its Cuba but for a Melia the food was not good. The beach was the best part of this trip, but not good enough to go back. Would not recommend this hotel.
