This was an amazing get away vacation. I stayed here for 7 nights at about $213 a night and I had a phenomenal time. Really nice to get away from the school and finally have some time to myself. It was great to be alone and get away from all of the nagging. Good to get away from technology and spend some time with myself. -CHARLIE
Me and my now wife, spent three weeks here in August for our wedding and honeymoon.If you love a beach or pool holiday, with no kids, quiet and relaxing and staff that will bend over backwards for you, this is the place to go.This is Cuba, so dont expect the Mexico style resorts and services. Cuba is limited on what it can offer you and the quality of food and hotels. But I'll tell you, that at the Melia they simply do the best with what they have. Duni, the wedding co-ordinator is simply the nicest and polite person I have met she was simply amazing. Once we arrived she helped plan our big day and gave us all the extra options to choose from. Everything was perfect and she is a credit to the melia.All the staff at Melia Cayo Coco are happy to help, polite, friendly and genuine people. No fake people here like in some countries or resorts.While the hotel does have some quirks and faults.. you simply ignore them, as its cuba and the experience the hotel offers simply helps you forget.Unfortunately the week after we left, Hurricane Irma hit the Cayo's and did indeed damage a lot of the hotels.I have been following the progress of the repairs and I'm highly impressed at the speed of repairs and improvements made to the hotel.I cannot wait to go back. :)The ONLY bad side, as mentioned by others, is the mosquitoes. Hopfully Irma helped tame down this issue a bit, as if it rained, they where out in force. I was eaten alive several times. BUT, the bites where not as bad as I've had in other countries.Thank you Melia Cayo Coco and see you again!!
This is a beautifully maintained 5* adult only hotel in an idyllic setting!The 'hotel' actually consists of a main building with the lobby reception, bar, upstairs disco and attached is the main restaurant. The rooms are then dotted around the complex in seperate small buildings, giving each room a different view of the whole complex. There are rooms overlooking the lagoon which cost more but I don't think you will be disappointed wherever you stay, we had nothing but vegetation outside our room which gave us no view at all, but actually it meant we had a constant array of wildlife outside our room including hummingbirds, woodpeckers, Eagles, lizards, crabs and loads more.The room was a very good size, clean and well maintained. The bed was comfortable and each night we were treated to a lovely turn down service, the fridge was also stocked daily with complimentary soft drinks and beer.There is a small but well equipped gym and a reasonably good sized pool for the amount of guests at this hotel.It is a large complex with lots of walking and lots to see, it really does make the most of the surrounding nature.There is a games area where we did shooting and archery and there was also daily football matches. The activities at the hotel were well suited for the adult only guest, there were games where you could win rum, aqua aerobics and nightly shows. The lobby also had daily live music either from the pianist or from other bands and dancers in the evenings.The food is the best I've had at an all inclusive hotel, with the option to have fresh food/ meat cooked for you daily. Drinks are also good quality and the bar staff are knowledgable and happy to make cocktails not on the menu. If you plan on drinking on the beach/ poolside or anywhere away from the main bar, I recommend taking a reusable flask with you which the bar staff are more than happy to refill. There are several places to eat and drink here so you won't be disappointed,including 24hr snacks at the pool bar. I particularly liked the lunch time BBQ at the beach resturaunt. There are also 3 restaurants you can book into during your stay (men make sure you take long trousers as shorts, even formal ones, are not allowed in these ones).There is a friendly diving school on the beach who my partner took lessons with and I went snorkelling with them. I highly recommended them if you're interested in doing this too, they are professional but fun, there are also pedalo boats and kayaks on the beach which are free to use for hotel guests which is great!There are a few shops in the complex selling cigars, rum and gifts, the prices in here are exactly the same as if you go to one of the towns in mainland Cuba.There is a car hire place next to the hotel where you can borrow bicycles free for an hour, we did this and cycled to the small market (less than 10minute cycle) where you can look at more gifts or take out money (take your passport with you to take out money).You can buy wifi cards at reception which give you an hour at a time but is not always great (think this is a wider wifi issue rather than the hotels actual wifi)The thing to remember is that this island is for tourists only, you will not find any local shops or restaurants etc to go to, so to see other areas of mainland Cuba you will need to book excursions, which I highly recommend doing, it is such a beautiful country and there is lots to see. Thomas cook do excursions to Havana but these were expensive and we were told that the flights were unreliable, so we booked a private taxi and tour guide to take us instead which was well worth the long journey!The staff are the friendliest people I've ever met!! Nothing is too much trouble and they are genuinely interested in talking to you and making sure your stay is enjoyable.I cannot fault this hotel in any way, it's the most amazing place I've ever been with the most wonderful people and I can't wait for the opportunity to go back and see all the lovely people we met once again.
This was our second visit to Melia CC and it was as great as the first ! August 31 to Sept. 6, 2017. There is not much we can add to all the wonderful comments posted here in reviews. The MCC resort is relaxing, charming, socialable, picturesque, immaculate, quaint and lucious. As you can probably tell we love everything about this resort ! LOL. The staff at the MCC are first rate. Indira, Alden and Jorge Mantillia at the buffet are so welcoming and pleasant. Daylette (lobby staff) always lovely. Ylayaly at the beach restaurant always gracious. Maite, entertaiment staff, always delightful. JD ( Jorge David ) entertainment staff, our forever friend, was his usual engaging, outgoing, good-humored, infectious smile self. The MCC should be proud of all their staff as they do an outstanding job accomplishing the MCC as the # 1 traveller ranked resort in Cayo Coco. We can't wait to return ! Regards to all. Sean, (connery, lol ) and Janet
We absolutely loved our time at Melia Cayo Coco. We upgraded to a lagoon room and it was the best decision we made. All the staff are fantastic and make sure you have the best holiday. Everywhere is spotlessly clean. The food was all delicious, we didn't have a bad meal in the entire time we were there. The beach bar was the best for food at lunch, we loved the authentic bbq style food. Was a perfect 2 week getaway with something there for everyone. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go back!
