Although a bit dated, Hotel Melia Cayo Coco is a gracious all-inclusive for adults only (18 +) resort standing on the beach of Cayo Coco, more exactly on Las Coloradas, a beautiful long beach of white sand which is ideal for diving and fishing , only shared with its neighbor hotel Sol Cayo Coco.

The key is linked to the mainland by the first stone causeway built in Cuba and it is home to a colony of pink flamingos. The resort features a natural salt water lagoon and it’s proud of its well achieved integration with the surrounding lush tropical landscaping.

Green common areas are extremely beautiful due to the hardworking and perseverant gardeners. Its 250 rooms are all adequate but we recommend, if possible, choosing the lagoon bungalows which are quieter, more spacious and comfortable. Another plus to these rooms is that they offer either sunrise or sunset views from their overlooking-the- lagoon balconies. The views are beautiful and well worth it.

You will most likely have a great holiday if you choose Meliá Cayo Coco, and you will feel at home because the staff is so friendly and supportive! Food seems to be quite good as well (according to recent feedback); there’s a lot of variety and different restaurants to choose from.

One gripe has to be mentioned, though: there are mosquitos due to the presence of the lagoon so, be sure to bring mosquito spray!

Also, this hotel might not be the best option for a young group, since it is not a party place. It is really best for couples looking for a very relaxing and quiet retreat.
