Melia Cayo Coco
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Location: Directly on the beach, 1 hr from Moron, 15 min from the Cayo Coco airport.
From the minute we arrived until the moment we left, we were totally looked after and made to feel very welcome. The hotel is very open and airy, excellent amenities, restaurants and loads of daily activities with the friendly staff on the go all the time, from the gardener to the waitress or waiter, no one can do enough to help you - they are always smiling and laughing, very happy people. The beach is amazing and the water is crystal clear and was warm even in December. The pool area is lovely, wig a choice of sun beds, sunhuts or double four poster double sun beds. The food in the buffet is good and there is something for everyone - recommend the fresh meat and fish counter where they cook whatever you choose. Wide choice. The international restaurant was superb, have to say though that the staff there were slightly haught and not at all as friendly as the rest if the resort. Food was exceptional though so we put up with it. DO NOT WASTE A BOOKING ON THE ITALIAN!! worst food ever - and the smell of the restaurant is disgusting, we walked in and walked straight out again. The Cuban restaurant was great and very particular about what food it served, obviously Cuban so lots of meat. Lovely location and friendly staff. Again this needs to be booked for dinner or tea but you can call in at lunch for something g off the BBQ. We stayed on a water villa over looking the lagoon but I wouldn't recommend them as we spent so little time in the room and couldn't go out on the balcony due to mosquitoes which loved the lagoon area!! Take a mosquito plug in, too. Spray and body spray as the little biters are everywhere and you never see them ! Take English money with you and change for dollars in the hotel as there are no cash points or banks to withdraw money. You can withdraw at agencies but it's a hassle and costs a lot. Do not take dollars with you. At the airport be prepared to wait a little while to actually get out of the tiny airport, your cases are chescked, yet again at the doors. Not too friendly in this airport so just get in and out as quick as you can. Would highly recommend you upgrade flight seats as the flight is a killer also paying for upgrade to lounge access on return is recommended as it speeds up check in time on way back as ques are lengthy and also you get on the plane first. We would go back but would like to see Havanna but it's about eight hours away on a coach!! overall I am now convinced heaven exists! Loved Cuba cayo cocoForgot to mention that this is an adults only resort which was also a massive plus - was worth paying extra for and having no kids around!
I hate to complain , but really I hope your vacation will be better.There was no water for 3 days, apperently it was all over the island.Dirty plates, running out of plates in the buffetsBring your own towels they were constantly running out.Toilet paper, wasn't replaced, it was coming later the next after noon. (ran out)No soap, in ladies washroom , told to go in to family washroom. Non there either.Then told to go in to the men's by an employeeTV wasn't even connected , wires were cut.Broken glass in the 24 hour snack bar, asked staff to sweep up , they didn't mind it??And all over resort on sidewalks.The pool over by the 20 block was gross, it had a film in the corner, the water didn't look clear.Green alge on side of walls. Not cleaned enough? The other pool is much cleaner!!.Waited in line for the a la cart for 3 hours!Then there was a letter saying no a la cartsSunday, Monday Tuesday .I was totally surprised by these things, I have been to different melia and never had any problems. Good luck ! Maybe all problems will be fixed by the time you get there.
We visited this lovely hotel in 2014 and had a great holiday, everyone and everything was fantastic so we decided to return for a second visit last year, and we were not disappointed, there had been one or two changes since our last visit , the grounds around the pool area had been improved, and a new outside bar just a little set back from the lobby area, really nice in the evenings with a cocktail enjoying all the entertainment that was provided after the sun went down. We have kept up with all the exciting news and all the fantastic improvements that have been done over the past year, and so now we can't wait to come back again.Looking forward to returning to the Melia Cayo Coco this coming June
We knew we wanted to go to an adult only resort for our holiday, so we did a lot of research into the adult only resorts in Cuba. We used previous visitor reviews from Trip Advisor and Monarc to assist in our selection. This was our 5th trip to Cuba and our 4th to a Melia resort. We are happy to say we were not disappointed. Media Cayo Coco is a beautiful resort with friendly staff and a great location. Although the resort is not new, it is in good shape and well maintained overall. The public paths need some work. This does not detract from the quality of the services and the facility in general. The food in the restaurants, both the buffet and a la cartes was very good, with an excellent selection in each. Since we were staying in a lagoon view room, we had the opportunity to have breakfast at "Las Caletas", which was always a great way to start the day. We felt that the food and service at this location was excellent. Nightly entertainment was excellent and thoroughly enjoyed both in the lobby bar and the theatre. My husband enjoyed his predawn coffee at the lobby bar and patio before enjoying the sunrise on the beach. We had read some negative reviews regarding the beach and its care, but we do not share those opinions. Not sure if these issues have been addressed in the meantime as a result of previous comments but we enjoyed our time there. Some comments had been made about seaweed. People have to appreciate this is a natural setting and this occurs. However, my husband noted that there were regular efforts to clean up the beach before it was crowded. There was always plenty of room and shade areas to relax under and the water was great. The facility was busy but was not overcrowded which contributed to our great week. The staff at the resort from housekeeping, reception, lobby bar and restaurants were friendly and you can see they made the effort to attend to your needs. Our thanks to you. We would be happy to return to the Melia Cayo Coco in the future.
Our first time at an all-inclusive. First: the room: everything worked . AC, safe, windows, bed was good, water was hot, tv was good.overall , two thumbs up.The food: we had heard that Cuban food was not that great.Total BS. Food was great. Custom omelettes at breakfast, no line-ups , world-class coffee...Either at Dinner or lunch, lots of choices, I loved it. The a la carte restaurants were even better.Lobby bar was first class. The severs could give our Canadians a lesson on how it's done.Beach was just fine.Pool , no complaintsEntertainment at night in lobby bar or Theater, was fabulous.Bottom line...We hope to return.
