Not the 5* you would expect in other parts of the world

The staff was friendly but not very helpful. The rooms were not 5-star-ish. The internet is basically non existent; you have to purchase a card for 5 euros to get 1 hour of internet, that you have to use in the lobby and that is so slow that you barely have time to download your emails. Its all-inclusive but if you dare NOT tip every single time a drink is brought to you, you get the worst stares. I got food poisoning the fist day I was there, and they charged me for seeing the hotel doctor (free medic care in cuba is only for cubans). The doctor almost gave me a double dose of a medication; but I was the one who caught the error and thankfully I did not take it. Besides all this, the place is very nice, the beach is nice and its a great spot for kite-surfing.

Our first visit to Melia certainly will not be our last!!

Melia Cayo Coco is absolute paradise!! It is a very short distance from the airport, however during our stay we didn't see or hear a plane! The hotel isn't new however, the excellent staff, service, cleanliness and ambiance is incomparable to any newer resorts we have been to. The grounds, pool and beach are very clean and well manicured. Our room was bright and cheerful. Our day house keeper kept our room spotless with fresh towels every day. The night house keeper always welcomed us back to our room with beautifully arranged turn down service accompanied by fresh flowers and elegant and delightful creations with our towels. The beach and inviting waters of the ocean are amazing! The food was an endless collection of fresh fruits, cheeses, fish, breads, meats...the list goes on and on. One could always find something new to try every meal. By far the staff was superior!! They go above and beyond. Everyone is so kind and friendly. By the middle of our weeks stay they all knew us and took time to visit with us. The service was exemplary!! My husband and I have decided that there really is no need to try other resorts in that area as the Melia has everything you could possibly want! As all good things must come to an end, as did our stay at the Melia we have decided to adopt the saying of our Cuban friends..." we are not saying goodbye, we are saying see you later!" We will definitely be going back for another vacation at the Melia Cayo Coco and highly recommend it to anyone.

Never Disappointed

We've just returned from spending a week in Melia Cayo Coco Cuba.This being my fourth visit I saw that Melia Cayo Coco (MCC) has made tremendous upgrades to constantly and continually keep its reputation as the #1 resort in Cayo Coco.We arrived July 12, 2017 at 1am due to a three hour flight delay (sunwing) - knowing that we were heading to a familiar place the delay didn't bother us.ACCOMMODATIONSUpon Check in we were kindly upgraded to a superior lagoon suite.In the past we had booked the classic rooms. Contrary to the classic room, this lagoon rooms are fitted with walk in showers with rainfall shower heads. And unlike other reviewers who have stated that the lagoon rooms are mosquito invested, I would disagree. The balcony was much larger and fitted with two chairs, two brand new modern chaise loungers and two side tables. #3212 is a great room. STAFFThe staff at MCC are extremely accommodating and will make every attempt to ensure you are having a grand time. The staff are friendly, polite and courteous to all of its guests. Arly a head waiter in the dinning room has and will always go out of his way to assist you.Same with two specific animation /entertainment crew members Riche and Janiceyla. They do a fantastic job. THE BEACHWOW. The beach has undergone major expansion. The beach at MCC had been drudged a year ago to create a beach three times it's original width. Beautiful.One day there was a small rainfall lasting no more than 20 minutes otherwise, EVERY day at the beach was fantastic.FOODYou will never have to wait in line at the buffet and all al a carte restaurants which must be booked upon arrival and now can also be booked online through only available in the lobby for a fee currently however, we being in a lagoon room apparently had access to one free hour which we never used-we were on holiday.Gone are the days were one would have to pay a 25cuc departure tax-the tax is now being included in your package.If I were to make one suggestion, It would be to have MCC play more modern music like they did during the foam party at the pool. And maybe provide modern, less constrictive uniforms for their staff.Upon walking through the newly built Pullman resort next door to MCC it is a family resort it looked very barren -no lush vegetation surrounding you like you would find at MCC. We will be returning to MCC in the very near future. We are never disappointed .Good work Melia Cayo Coco.You did it again, you provided us with a FANTASTIC holiday .Thank you J. Startup
