Fodor's Expert Review Meliá Las Dunas
Cayo Santa Maria, , Ciego de Ávila, Cuba Fodor's Choice
One of the most attractive all-inclusive resorts in Cuba has a vibrant atmosphere and beautiful environs. The grounds are as pleasing as you'll find anywhere in the country, with numerous ponds, water fountains, gazebos, and sitting areas. The sprawling resort has 46 two-story room blocks. Its many bars and restaurants give you enough choices to be happy, and the staff at the restaurants and bars are particularly courteous. Rooms are beautifully appointed, and second-floor accommodations offer a great view of the ocean. The elegant and tastefully designed rooms have dark-wood furnishings, including solid bed boards and two comfortable cushioned chairs, an armoire with a stocked minibar, desk, mirror, and even an iron and ironing board, as well as a 22-inch TV; decorative white drapes are an added touch. Balconies are furnished with a table and chairs.
- the restaurants are top-notch, especially Isabel y Fernando
- service here is unfailingly impeccable
- with 900-plus rooms, not quite as private and exclusive as next-door Meliá Cayo Santa María
