Meliá Las Dunas is a 5* all-inclusive beach resort located in Cayo Santa María, a key on the north of the province of Villa Clara that together with Cayo Coco & Cayo Guillermo forms the archipelago Jardines del Rey.

Cayo Santa María not only features a gorgeous beach, its wild green vegetation and rich variety of endemic fauna make this region, declared a biosphere reserve, rank as one of the most exotic areas of the Caribbean.

Access to the key is through a 48Km causeway from the town of Caibarién on the main island.

Two ambiances are clearly recreated in Meliá Las Dunas. One is devoted to families, the other to Adults Only.

It is a beautiful and big resort (925 rooms), where grounds are kept so nicely that it is a pleasure to walk around it.

It features several swimming pools; for children, for activities and one of them for "relaxation", designed to rest, perfect for reading or just getting a tan in total tranquility (no games or activities and children are not allowed).

Beach is simply sublime, with a wide strip of white fluffy sand, crystal clear waters and many kilometers long which makes it perfect for walking. There are also plenty of nautical sports to practice.

Food receives good reviews, especially the à la carte restaurants. Also the buffet offers a good selection for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is also an ice cream parlor and the Beer Garden (open 24 hours) offering hamburgers, sandwiches, fries ... so convenient when you miss the buffet opening hours.

Service, staff and animation team also get many compliments and positive reviews.

It should be noted that some guests complain about the service, especially when the occupancy is high; unavailability of plates, glasses, cutlery, ice, supplies problems in general.

Off the resort there’s a craft market that is worth visiting since one can buy souvenirs at attactive prices. There is a bus that picks up clients at the hotel and brings them back (extra charge but very economical).

Tips and useful information:

- Bring mosquito repellent

- Book at least one of the attractive excursions offered by the Tourism Desk ($); Trip to Santa Clara / Remedios trip and the speedboat excursion, among others.
