We just returned from our trip to Cuba, and we were at this hotel for three days. The place is wonderful, all over wonderful, the best buffet I've ever see, people that work there are amazing, excellent service and the bungalows are from another world. Everything was great and I will use it again with no hesitation. The only thing they are missing is Wi-Fi. But considering that you are on vacation, take it as that you will rest more and forget about the rest of the world. It was amazing!!!!
We went to the melia cayo coco end of January for two amazing weeks , the hotel is lovely the food is the best we have ever had and we have stayed in quite a few all inclusives!!! The staff are so friendly and welcoming nothing is to much trouble we checked in very quickly are suitcases were taken to our room no 7522 very clean a little tired maybe but the big plus for me a comfy bed !!!the animation team were fab great shows and in the day lots going on and I must mention ismary she great lots of fun and a guy called happy !! and Jordan behind the main bar he makes a mean bloody Mary !!! Such lovely people .... The beach is to die for beautiful sandy beaches blue sea and lots of hot sun !! We will be going back next january can't wait ..I would recommend anybody to go ...
excelente lugar para el descanso
La estancia en este hotel resulta maravillosa, la comida es excelente, el servicio correcto y muy atento (destacando a Ismael que hace que tu estancia resulte muy agradable), las instalaciones estan limpias y son adecuadas al lugar, y la política de hotel de no aceptar a familias con niños es la decisión que te permite que la tranquilidad se haga realidad. En general recomiendo este lugar para tomarte un respiro en el viaje.
Heaven on Earth
My husband and I waited six years to take our honeymoon. He booked the trip on his own and he picked the most fantastic spot in the world. This is a piece of heaven on earth. Everything was wonderful. The staff were amazing, the food was wonderful, the beach was heavenly, the pool was terrific and the atmosphere was second to none. I can honestly say that if anyone can find fault with this resort....then they best just stay at home because no where will ever meet their expectations. Thank you to everyone that made our stay such a wonderful experience. May God hold you all in the palm of his hand.

Our first vacation together and this resort was absolute paradise. Our expectations were surpassed. The food, rooms and staff were all top notch. Beach was fantastic, excursions were first class, we recommend the jet boat, the live shows were very professional. We would definately return to this resort.
First time in Cuba and loved it
Melia was the perfect vacation. The food in all the restaurants was good and we took advantage of the opportunities to eat in the Italian, the Cuban and the International restaurant during our stay. We enjoyed all of them. Food in the main buffet restaurant was good with plenty of variety. In the bars the service was very good and drinks came up very quickly. Everything worked in the room and was extremely clean. Our chambermaid did an outstanding job of servicing the room and left us new towel animals daily. The grounds of the resort are beautiful and well kept. Overall this is an excellent resort if you're looking for peace and quiet away from the kids.
Remember to tip the staff well! They work very hard to ensure you're happy with your vacation.
A little piec of paradise
I experienced one of the best holidays I have ever had. On arrival, the staff was very attentive and polite, The room they gave me was fantastic, large clean bright and so well equipped. The first meal I had there at the buffet was steak and lobster tails cooke right there for me and was totally delicious. The service was impecable and the surroundings were superb. The bar staff at the various bars were just fantastic and would go out of theitheir way for me. The beach was wonderful, All the restaurants wer amaazing, the food, service et al was fantastic. I really hated to leave after my stay, but will be going back next March with my wife. The reason she did not accompany me was she is nervous of flying and hates heat. When I explained that the weather is really fanrtastic and if she got a littl hot, there is always the well airconditioned room to escape to. In closing the overall experience at Melia was beyond pleasurable. It was a little piece of heaven. A big thamks to all of the staff for making my stay a most memorable one.

We stayed from the o8th- 15th of May 2011. We thought that heaven was on earth while We were there. Not one complaint, food is excellent and varied, staff are pleasant and always willing to help you in anyway possible. The beach is nice and clean and for the tourists they are just like one big family everybody seems to enjoy mixing and talking to strangers and making friends. So I would recommend this site as one of the best in Cuba. Hola
Excellent friendly & welcoming staff,
Excellent friendly & welcoming staff, from guest services, to the kitchen staff & grounds-keepers.
Did not want to leave at the end of our week's stay.
This place is perfect!
I absolutely recommend this resort. Everything is close. The food is great and nicely surprising (orange yogurt, banana-maple crepe, beach house grill...). It was nice and warm in March. Pool pleasant enough. Beach was close and handy, but nice that you could walk to next door Sol beach too for an excursion - it's quite spectacular to walk the low tide. Lots of entertainment. Audaces de Hoy is a most pleasant Cuban quartet with great vocal harmonies, playing at the beach house restaurant at lunch. The music in the lobby bar was mostly good although could use more danceable cuban music, and encouragement for the audience to do some latin dancing - why are people so shy??? The activity crew was great - encouraging guests to participate in dance lessons, volleyball in the pool, yoga, etc... Those girls are the best - and really made it fun - guests need to move a little when you are fed and beveraged so well! The nightly dance shows were FANTASTIC - those dancers work so hard and such good quality. Their shows meant a lot to us and made it very Cuban. My only suggestion to the hotel, is to maybe pass a hat around at the end of the show or something to allow people to give them a little tip. That's about it! Good job!
We arrived at the Melia Cayo Coco on 31st March 2011 late at night, and were amazed to find the Pool Side bar open for something to eat. The staff were amazing, no matter where you went, they were all very eager to help and unbelievalby friendly. Beach was great (although more Palapas needed) and the water was crystal clear. Food was the best I have experienced in Cuba (better than RHE and Paradisus Rio De Oro) the buffet was the best part, so many choices and all well prepared. If there is one downside, it was our room (8913) it was damp and had mold on the walls, even had a large Cockroach visit one evening.. Other than the room, it was a great time and a great location
There is nothing to say
There is nothing to say execpt my stay was like paradise on earth. The whole ecperience was beyond description, words cannot say enought about my holiday, starting from arrival to departure. A big thnak you to ll for making my trip such a wonderful holiday to remember.
Amazing Resort! Amazing Staff!

We stayed at this adults only resort from Feb. 3-10, 2011 and it was amazing! Smaller sized resorts like this are a lot more personal and you get to know the tremendous staff so well. Cuban people are the most gracious hosts and that is why we continually come to this country for our vacations! The food here is great and the beach is awesome. If you get a room on the lagoon, you will be amazed at the breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Would come back to this resort in a flash!
If you are over 60 and travelling alone, this hotel is perfect. Staff are caring, helpful,chat with you and do not impose. Room very clean, food is not full of salt , plenty of vegetables and different meat. Excellent hotel .
