Melia Buenavista details
If you fancy staying at a brand new adults only resort on Cuba, then the Melia Buenavista should be right up your street. Standing on a deserted snowy white beach at Punta Madrugilla in western Cayo Santa Maria, this really is a dream getaway destination. Relaxation and romance go hand in hand here, whether it’s a stroll along the sand, an afternoon spent basking by one of the two glorious freeform pools or a couples massage in the glamorous Yhi Spa. This may be haven of tranquillity but the facilities here are excellent: as well as the two pools, there’s a tennis court, a fitness centre, outdoor Jacuzzi, dance lessons and exercise programmes and access to the Nautical Centre at the nearby Sol Melia Hotel – for kayaking, sailing, pedaloes, windsurfing and snorkelling.
Your dining choices at the Melia Buenavista are superb, with sumptuous international buffets in the main restaurant, as well as Caribbean and gourmet a la carte options. Add to that lobby, beach and pool bars, as well as a dine around programme and it’s enough to satisfy any appetite. The accommodation is super stylish – contemporary tropical might be a way of describing it. All the rooms have ceiling fans, air conditioning, satellite TV, minibar, internet access, tea/coffee facilities and bathrobes.
