The place needs a little TLC. The people who work there, are amazing. The food was good as well. Amazing beach. You have to walk a lot to get to where you want to go. No trollies. I really liked the double decker bus ride to get to the Estrella. We were there in Feb. 2020 before covid.

I am very excited to know that Melia Las Dunas in Cayo Santa Maria Cuba is opening up for us Canadians during this difficult time in our lives. I cannot explain to you all the most beautiful atmosphere this hotel provides. It is paradise with the best staff you could ever imagine. So kind and friendly plus a very safe place to go during covid. The beach is absolutely beautiful the food is excellent and the resort is very laid back for you to relax. You will be very safe on the island and be giving the best of treatment at all times. I give them a 10. I love my home away from home. Love you melia las Dunas and hope to be there soon.

I have been to MLD at least 2 times a year, since 2010. I return for the people, who take care of us, the beach (serene and tranquil) the food ( I never go hungry). I can't wait to return home to cuba. From the first moment we land, we are greeted by so many familiar smiling faces and many hugs. Sandra and Neysi, have been very accommodating for my Dad and myself. We check in quickly, as when they see us so often they come and settle our accommodation, bags and ask if we have any needs. They book us 3 restaurants ahead of time, which is a great help. We are always invited to the special dinner for VIP guest, which has a tremendous atmosphere and dinner. Our bags are taken to our hotel room, by the bell boys, or should I say "men" (Yuneil and Henry). The are always happy to see us, and ask about our home, work and family. They carry my very heavy bags to the upper level, open the room, and make sure that the air-conditioning is working, fridge is fully stocked (water, pop and beers), and tell us to contact the front desk if there is anything else that is needed. As I am a returning customer, I usually find a bottle of Havana Rum in my room...very nice added touch.
