To put this in a situation we are in cuba not a five star in Montreal so if we ca led early this hotel offers a 99% good for 1% poor. The beach is the best I have visited in the course of my six trips to cuba and my 5 other (Mexican Republic). You can walk miles of beaches and magnificent white sand with a fine. The sea is linear so you can walk there long before the water shoulders. No coral, but sand was soft perfection. Can therefore can deep dangerous for youngsters. The staff is great and very helpful, they speak a little Spanish will give you a smile for sure (even as you would like to have tourists here that the power to speak your language). The hotel is well maintained and fauna of the site is very mature and pretty. The buffet is very good. For those who say it lacks variety and not eat all that the buffet has to offer on the first night (the 50 different varieties of dishes) and you can eat what's different every night (like home). At home a person eats a little of everything every night, everyone feels yours has only one variety of meals vary a little question. Made like in the south. Of course be careful with fruits and vegetables, water and earth in which they grow is not the same at which your body is so used: small risk of stomach ache if we exaggerate (ca worth for all travel in the south), so nothing bad if you're prepared. Regarding cats around the best restaurants worth ca critters such as snakes. Make your choice, it is not in cuba Montreal. Rate animated those who want to be pulled by the arm to say that there you are not a good place, it's not a Club Med. There are many activities schédulées attention has therefore lent them so you want to by. The evening dance in the central square, not miss ca. The evening shows are not the best, if you want action and evening super active go to a club med or 3 star. The hotel is a 4 and a half so accessible to people of all ages, so Action moderate.

Negative :

If you are aware that you are not in cuba has the incredible luxury of a 5 star in Montreal or you're used to the food and bacteria, so inevitable, in the water that contain vegetables and fruit of all the country, to which you are not used, you spend an amazing trip. This hotel has very few negatives other than those whose clients are the cause. Urinate in a toilet and not listed and public toilets remain clean. Not drink as soualons and you have less chance of having tourista. Not eat too many vegetables and fruits, and stay résonnable you would not have traveler's either. Bring pills billion bacteria issues to help to rebuild your corp ca flora face a food that you are not used. In short-sighted and be aware and negative points, you caused yourself, will be positive points.

I was at the Melia Las Dunas from March 14 to 21. I spent a wonderful week. The turquoise sea is a breathtaking, white sand beach is very long ... for lovers of long walks on the playa! The beach is narrow end only adult familly side, it is very deep. The vegetation on the site is abundant and just beautiful. The lobby is beautiful: in the evening, this is where it's happening! The show was very entertaining and correct. The a la carte restaurants are very good ... the "Romantico" is certainly one you will need to book first (cozy atmosphere, candlelight and piano accompany your meal ...). Many animation and music at the pool familliale if that is what you are looking for otherwise you will find tranquility adult side. The hiking catamaran (72 convertible pesos), it is YOUR business of the week that we should not miss ... believe me! The "check in" is on the bus on her way to the hotel so you can go directly to your room upon arrival. Also during this same journey, you make a virtual visit of Santa Clara, you may like ... The Friday night buffet, it's lobster will ... Try these! Finally, the Cubans are very friendly and always make an effort to speak or understand French.

Negative :

I got my beach towels after 2 days ... I simply could not believe it. I am in the South to enjoy the beach but there was more beach towels for my wife and I ... we have repairs made with towels! Not very strong for a 4 1/2 stars. By late afternoon, if you're not first, you will not succeed in changing your beach towels ... they were in constant shortage of towels ... The paper towel is toilet paper (not a joke). No iron or ironing in my room and even if it is included in the package, no employee of the hotel has managed to get one ... shortage of iron they told me! The chairs of sun at the beach ... must arrive at 8 hrs in the morning to have a ... shortage of chairs? They have a fleet of bicycles for those who wish for a ride: These bikes have 15 years in moin, rusty, no brakes for the most flat tires for a few, short, I never managed to in find one in working order and safe. It's a little anything this situation! How a hotel 4 1/2 stars can make available to its customers such Feraille? -Here are some details that have been irritating for me but that does not prevent me from spending a wonderful week ... in this hotel that I like a 4 star rating at the most.

Positive :

PARADISE ON EARTH! Very nice hotel, staff very friendly, polite, helpful. They are trying to talk French. They really do everything to make our stay enjoyable. In the evening, from 19:30 to 21:30, it is animation, Cuban musicians who make us dance the Latin dances. The very very fun. It lacks a lot in Cuba Hotels. The food is very good (we agree that we are in Cuba, not the Queen Elizabeth). We ate our bellies full. Naturally, you also have well drunk. :-) Lush vegetation. Many activities at the pool side family. For those who want tranquility, the pool side of adult entertainment has never (that is designed on purpose). Turquoise sea, very very very long beach for those who enjoy walking. Very large site (notice to those who do not like it).

Negative :

THE BEACH! Lack of palapas, a lot of broken chairs, chairs must be booked at 8:00 in the morning to be sure to have a palapa and chair properly. Very soft sand beach side family. The more one goes to the Barcelo, more sand is hard. Very narrow range of the adult side. At high tide, the waves rise up chairs: - Lack of toilets near the beach.

Generally very good. Important points to note: No toilet at the beach, walk to the Lack of access to the beach, has two locations, need to clean the beach chairs in the plastic to break a lot, for the positive: a Home the airport nice and gives us all the information a bus with a map of your unit, not waste time on arrival at the hotel, satisfied with our experience and courtesy of employees. GOOD vavances

Beautiful hotel, many restaurants végétations.Les to the card are very bien.Le staff is friendly and speaks for most français.L the atmosphere of the lobby is busy at night, the alcoholic coffees are delicious and the morning you start your day in the lobby with a cafe latte or cappucinno a must that I have loved .... The beach is long you can go the distance, the water is turquoise as I like.

Negative :

I do not know if it's always windy out there but we needed a long sleeve evening and sometimes we could not stay on the beach the day due to wind frais.Pas toilet at the beach. Lack of lighting at night on small roads leading to our chambres.Sinon everything was perfect.
