Reviews for Melia Las Dunas
About 60 family and friends were at this hotel for our daughter's wedding last November 2016. The hotel and grounds and the beach were absolutely beautiful. The room(s) are a bit dated but still very cheerful and clean. We loved all of the bars and restaurants and the staff are great. A couple of negatives......the reception was at one of the hotel restaurants (I forget the name) and as the mother of the bride I have to say the lobster dinner that was ordered was awful. Most of the lobsters guests had were undercooked or overcooked. I was afraid to eat mine. Also, while the dinner was underway the grounds staff decided to spray/fog for insects right by the restaurant which was open-air. This was totally unacceptable. But generally, all of the guests enjoyed their stay. Would definitely go back again but given that this location was directly hit by a hurricane this fall (2017) I am not sure what condition the resort is in. Very sad as it is/was a truly beautiful resort.
We decided to travel to Cayo Santa Maria because of a lot of personal recommendations. The price for this all inclusive came in under my budget. The flight was great, the lines at the airport were long and it took about an hour to pass through customs. The customs agents are very serious but that did not really bother me. The bus ride to the island was good, it was very humid but our guide was great. The lobby was really nice and the check in went very quickly. When we arrived to our room, there was a small issue so we called the front desk and someone came rather quickly to take care of it. Also, when our water was not replenished in the room one day, we went to the lobby and someone delivered during the day. Overall, the service everywhere on the resort was great. Very kind and friendly. I have to mention the ground keepers who were seen working hard every day all over the resort. Beautiful gardens. The room was basic but that was fine by me as we spent very little time in the room. The only thing that I regret is not tipping on a daily basis as the maid that left our room spotless, tied up the curtains and left towel animals did not get my tip on the 4th day as it was no longer her and this new person did not do anything special, did not even change out our towels. Lesson learned for our next trip. Also, I forgot to close the safe one day and when I got back to the room, everything was still there. Just mentioning it as I know that some people (not at this resort) have had things stolen from their rooms. The beach was absolutely amazing, just beautiful. You can walk for both ways on nice white sand. The entertainment team was wonderful, even the food hut had nice, fresh daily ham and veggie sandwiches. The food on the rest of the resort was also fine. I am a very picky eater but yet was able to find something to eat at every meal. The pizza restaurant was good, the japanese was excellent and the italian was good too. I have to mention that the cappuccinos were the best I have ever had:) The entertainment on the resort was good too. The best was the cirque show and the latin band was amazing. I cannot comment on the pool areas as we did not spend anytime there whatsoever. Overall, great trip. Exactly what I needed. We are going back to Cuba in January 2018 but to Varadero. Tip: exchange your money on the resort and only small amounts at a time as the rate is always changing. Check your bills that they give you back if in your currency (for us, it was canadian) as they gave us a $20 bill that had a very small rip in the corner and when we went to exchange it the next day for more CUC, they refused it saying that it was damaged. Luckily, we had more money with us.
This resort is by far the best one we have been too for Cuba. It is also better then some dominican one. But... it is far... far away from the airport. The buffet is (i would say) on my top 4. This including cuba and dominican. This is also the first time that i feel the real Cuban culture with the ambiance and different show (music) during the day and night. Dont ask why... i just felt it... But... Forget about the "a la carte" restaurent... dont even bother going... it is completely un-professional.. not good and slowwwwwwwww.... yes.... slowwwwwww. The temperature was perfect... If you like the beach and good buffet food and dont care about travel time in bus... go for it.

I have been to this resort 3 times - April 2016, January 2017 and September 2017. Besides the incredible beach (which really doesn't compare to most any beach that I have been to - and I have been to many!).....it was so wonderful to have great yoga and fitness instructors for my first and second visits. Randy Martinez and Daniel Fernandez struck a great balance of professionalism, great instruction and technique, wonderful personalities and generous spirit. I was very disappointed when I discovered that they had left on my third visit...Randy and Dani were truly A+ and I miss them a lot!

I loved everything. the beach was great the food was decent not many lines. the beach didn't have mush for snorkling off shore. the nightlife was incredible and they especially like to play popular Spanish music which I loved. I would go back in a heart beat. drive from airport a little long but worth it. crab season was so much fun
