Another beautiful stay at the Melia
The biggest thing for people to remember is that this is an older hotel that had been struck by a hurricane over 2 years ago and is constantly under renovation. The people that work in the resort consistently go out of their way to make your trip special. Not everyone you meet will have a connection with you, but there are several that will. The room, there are problems with it. There is a mouldy moisture smell which happens in older buildings and ones where high levels of humidity are. The air conditioning worked, the shower had warmish hot water most of the time and the mini bar was always stalked up. The maids are always helpful and around if you need them. In the regards to the buffet, the only negative I have is the repetitiveness of the food, but it was always edible and tasty. There are several stations that cook food at the moment and the line ups are long, that got frustrating but understandable for most people. The fresh juice station is amazing and the ladies that work their are beyond friendly and courteous. The a la carte's were great as long as you don't go in expecting too much, for example the Pad Thai isn't the same as we eat in Canada but still good. The Mediterranean is my favourite more for the service than the food but still amazing. There are two pools, one on the adult only section which is super quiet and serene. The family pool can get a little loud but is a great time. Seats can be limited at busy times, best to get your seats early. The beach is amazing. Probably the most beautiful in the whole world. There is nothing more stunning than there. To be perfectly honest there are probably several nicer resorts in Cayo Santa Maria at this price point, but you can't go wrong here. The people at the Las Dunas are some of the nicest and loving people on the planet. If you want to be safe with good food, a clean resort, and great service this is the resort for you. Looking forward to going back for my fourth time next year.

Not for Vegans
Our stay was alright. During our welcome meeting with the Sunwing rep, he chased a cockroach and stomped on it in front of all of us, that was kind of a turnoff. The lobby was smoked filled 24-7. I suffered from our room being so smelly from cig. smoke as well, asked if we could change got a hard no twice. Plus our shower leaked as much water out of it as there was water inside. If I didn't bring my own crackers, nuts, vegan jerky, peanut butter, ketchup, soy sauce and almond milk, I would have been even more hungry than I was all week. I ate white buns, french fries and white rice. This resort is NOT vegan friendly, not even for a couple options. I wasn't even 100% sure if the buns, fries or rice were made with eggs, milk, or butter but I needed to eat something. No one from the kitchen knew what I was asking. I figured there would be vegetables or fruits (that had no animal products added) at least, but nothing. We couldn't even enjoy one a la carte restaurant either. Got tired of the skunky draft beer after the second day, and had the margaritas but didn't even catch a buzz. Please bring your own mug to use, the amount of plastic this resort goes thru is beyond believable. I would love to see them try to omit using at all. The cleaning staff for rooms or public areas of the hotel were fabulous. They did an excellent job all the time and were very friendly to speak to. The front desk were less than helpful every time I approached them. Bell hops were very nice. Tried to get water bottles at least 3-4 times a days, with very little luck. They "were out" of water all the time. Luckily we would hunt down our cleaner and politely ask for one which she seemed to have a few times. Long wait at lobby for any drinks at any time of day whether it would be for coffee or alcohol. Beach was nice. Very windy. 7 days was too long to stay at this place. Will be returning to Varadero.

A paradise named Coral Level
My husband and I were in Coral Level Iberostar Selection Ensenachos for 2 weeks. We are seniors. This was our 4th stay and we are so in love with the place, we are returning in 3 weeks and considering a further return in March. What is it about this place that is so overwhelming? Mostly everything! The sandy beach is long and there are lots of palapas, the water is as turquoise as can be, we are offered bar service to our lounge chairs and we are blessed with Janet to watch over our safety. We spend most of our days at the beach enjoying the relaxing, quiet, lovely, private heaven. Unfortunately, the storm in previous weeks has done some damage to the walkways and to the beach restaurant. Work is in progress to repair so the restaurant can be re-opened and both walkways be safe. Meanwhile, lunch is served at the pool bar restaurant. The Coral Level itself is about 25 villas, some double, spread around a magnificently maintained landscape. Each villa is very private and offers a homelike environment: large bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchenette, 2 bathrooms and a wonderful terrace where a brand new jacuzzi awaits us 24/7. Everything is clean and very well maintained. The service to the villa, be it by the maids, the jacuzzi person or delivery is timely and well done. The pool and its surroundings, the restaurant El Colonial and bar lunch area, the bar and lobby are always staffed with great people who will do their utmost to please you, especially our butlers, mostly Yandry and Michel but also Dismar and Marechal. The food, either at the Coral Level or at the main Lobby restaurants is offered in a wide variety and is tasteful. Despite the shortages we know about, we have not suffered during our stay, far from it. The shuttle is frequent and takes us anywhere including to our villa. Now sure enough, there are things that break or don't go as planned sometimes but in no time there is someone taking charge and fixing the situation. Although we understand the necessity of such, in previous stays my one and only critic was the bug killer which travels the resort around dinner time. Working with our butler, we now go out before or wait until after the spraying occurs. It works fine and it leaves us with no real negative to share with you about this resort. You don't have to believe what I say. You can travel there and delight in all that Coral Level has to offer except if you are the type of person who would damage the private, the quiet, the beauty, the magic, the heavenly ambiance in which case I suggest you go elsewhere.

Cuba fun
First visit to Cuba but have travelled tons down south. Extremely impressed w this new resort. Clean and bright with modern decor. Not too big that everything is easy to get to, with two large pools and a children's pool. Many access points to the beach. Resort only had approx 100 people at beginning of last week and half full towards the end of the week. Almost everything is up and running. Main buffet for breakfast and supper with barbecue near beach or snack buffet area for lunch. Swim up bar at pool and chair side drink service at both pool and beach. Staff will bring lounge chair to where you want to sit, they clean off the sand and lay out your towel. Beach has a lot of shells so shoes for beach vollleyball and soccer might be an idea (11 yr old cut foot pretty bad). Watersports like kayaking (dbl/single), peddleboats, windsurfing and they will even take you around on hobie cat. Rooms are big and open concept - waterfall shower directly in middle of room. Hot water entire week. You get bottled water,beer and pop in mini bar. Water in resort is bottled so okay to drink at meals and bars. Food was good, not massive buffets but they have fresh omelette, pancake and waffle stations, fresh meats (chicken, pork and beef plus approx 4 types of fish to cook on grill directly in front of you for dinner and lunch). Great tennis and basketball courts - only dissapointment was one ball and it took us a few days to track it down, no tennis equipment yet, maybe bring your own. The entertainment staff was great and very attentive (Richie, Elvis and Alejandro), they go above and beyond even playing basketball w my 11/15 yr old boys after working all day. They are on the beach in the mornings and around the pool in the afternoon. Drinks and specialty coffees were great at pool bars, beach bar and lounge bar - recommend bringing drink containers - cups they provide are pretty small. You can exchange Cnd money directly at hotel or airport. Bus ride to resort offers beer for 2.00 in pesos or cnd. Remember you can't leave Cuba w peso's. you will need to exchange back at airport. Limited shopping at resort but neighbouring resort has small street market that has different vendors daily for souvenirs. Had a great time in Cuba and at this resort, will definitely go back.
