Starfish Cayo Santa María (formerly Gaviota la Estrella, Husa Cayo Santa María & Barceló Cayo Santa María) is a beachfront 5* resort located in Cayo Santa María, one of the cays of Villa Clara (a province on the north side of Cuba), linked to the mainland by a causeway.

Perfectly integrated in the luxuriant flora and fauna of Cayo Santa María, an area which has been declared a Biosphere Reserve, the resort es divided in 2 sections between which the 22 bungalows of 3 floors each are spread.

Rooms are not luxurious but they are definitely comfortable and attractive.

The beach is amazing, no doubt one of the most stunning beaches in the world, with over 2.6 km of white sand that feels like flour, crystalline waters and plenty of beach chairs.

The swimming pools are beautiful and kept very clean. There are two for adults and two for children; a party/animation area and a relaxation/quiet area.

Gastronomic offerings include four à la carte restaurants, two buffet style restaurants, two grills and eight bars. Staff is great, friendly, and helpful. Amenities and services are extensive: a business centre; supervised children’s activities; nearby adventure tour options; a vast number of land and water sports...all that is required for relaxing tropical vacations.

And very near the hotel a tourist village offers much more: restaurants, SPA, bowling, a piano bar and a disco.

Tips: Don't forget your sunscreen lotion and mosquito spray.

Hotel Highlights

Besides all mentioned facilities, Starfish Cayo Santa María features two air conditioned multi-purpose (weddings, celebrations, conferences and other events) halls with capacity for 174 persons each.
