I recently visited Melia Jardines Del Rey with my fiance over the Easter weekend. I had been to this resort once before in July for a girls trip and decided to go again because I was very impressed and I had a great overall experience.
The resort did not disappoint the second time around.
Location: only a 15 minute taxi ride from the airport (25 CUC)
Staff: the front desk, bartenders, bellboy (Abdiel), servers (Yanna), grounds keepers, cooks....all amazing and extremely friendly.
Entertainers: AMAZING! FANTASTIC! ENERGETIC! FUN! FRIENDLY! They really know how to entertain and make your stay an enjoyable and memorable one. Shoutout to Yandy, Olexis, Alex, Mitch, William, Chino, Machado, Junior!
Beach: Crystal clear water, white sand, a lot of beach space, clean, plenty of chairs and umbrellas/cabanas (although you still want to wake up early and save one).
Hotel Grounds: very well kept! The rooms are quite large and clean. The lobby is also very big and there is always some sort of entertainment at night.
Food: Not the greatest, but I do not go to Cuba for the food. I don't think anyone books Cuba thinking they are going to get gourmet food. If you want good authentic Cuban food, go off the resort and into the town.
Looking forward to returning!More
