Melia Cayo Santa Maria

The beachfront all-inclusive resort Melia Cayo Santa Maria is on the eponymous island in the Caribbean archipelago of Jardines del Rey. 

The emphasis here is on wellness and relaxation, ideal for couples although the resort welcomes families and groups of friends. There are bright, sunny rooms decorated in tropical colours, situated in one and two storey buildings. Suites have separate living room, jacuzzi and ocean-views. All have en suite bathroom and balcony or terrace and can accommodate up to two adults and two children. The guest rooms have a good range of amenities including beach umbrellas, satellite TV and digital safe.

Resort facilities include tennis courts, gym with sauna, spa, water sports centre, and open-air swimming pool with poolside bar. The main restaurant is buffet style, and there is more informal poolside restaurant serving Creole style barbeques and pasta dishes. There are two other smarter restaurants specialising in Japanese and French cuisine.
