We recently returned from our second stay at the Melia Buenavista in two years. The place was just as we remembered it: clean, well-appointed, sunny, and pleasant. This is our third such sun vacation in Cuba over the past thirteen years, so it is not something we do with great frequency or variation (we've seen two properties in this time)....

As frequent travelers to, and reviewers of, the Melia Buenavista, we will attempt not to repeat what other reviewers of the hotel have commented on. What we feel we should note in this review is the fact that since last October, there are clear improvements in what the MBV offers clients. The most noticeable upgrade in our opinion, has been...

My wife and I spent a quiet, ultra relaxing week the second week of May. The Buenavista is a beautiful small, adults only resort at the very secluded western tip of Cayo Santa Maria. With the nearest other resort over a half hour walk away, in very soft sand, very few if any guests from other hotels venture this far....

The hôtel is perfect for a relaxing stay. The room are wonderful, with outdoor shower. The beverage and food are good even if for an all-inclusive you cannot expect a 3-star restaurant quality.

Our flights were with Westjet, who were changing from their winter schedule to their summer schedule, which resulted in one extra day vacation for us! The transfer from the airport to the resort was painless. There is no need to change money at the airport; the beer on...
