    Questions & Answers
    Hello, This is a question for people who have visited the resort. I have booked a trip to MLD for Dec 18 to 26. It is my first time at this resort. However, I have gone to MCSM two times and both times were amazing. We decided to try MLD this time and found a good deal for our family. I am traveling with my husband and our two kids age 5 and 10. I have been reading reviews that the resort is huge and just wondering if someone could provide some insight on how big in terms of walking time. To get from the beach to rooms or lobby etc are we talking 20 minute walk or longer? Also, when we had gone in March the nights were cool. You would be comfortable with a light sweater. It it the same weather in December or is best to bring more warmer clothes for the kids. Any looking for any suggestions or tips for the resort and specifically relating to traveling with children. Thank you in advance. We are so excited and I think we will love it as much as the MCSM. We love cuba so much and Santa Clara I have actually never travelled anywhere else :)
