Accommodation options in Cuba are improving all the time, but it is still not often in Cuba that you find a hotel which is universally acclaimed for its service and the excellent quality of its facilities. This first class Melia Buenavista resort – part of the respected Spanish-owned Meliá chain – is certainly one of them. From the moment you are greeted with your welcome cocktail you will enjoy attentive and professional service.
Located on the western part of Cayo Santa Maria, this all-inclusive resort offers a relaxing stay for adults only, in an exclusive but low-key atmosphere. It’s an all suite hotel with guest accommodation ranging from junior suites to luxurious villas. Rooms have an unfussy, contemporary design and lots of little extra amenities. Choose between a garden, pool or ocean view, which you can enjoy from your terrace and outdoor shower.
Facilities include two pools, a spa, gym and tennis court, while activities such as yoga and tai chi are offered. There are six restaurants serving Caribbean and international dishes. The hotel’s location on a 6km pristine white-sand beach makes it a perfect place to unwind or to try some of the water sports on offer.
