Our Opinion

Like most of the resort in Cayo Santa Maria, this resort has a stunning beach, with powder white sand! They don't get much better than the beach of Cayo Santa Maria. This resort also has pretty good dining options, which can be a real challenge in Cuba. You'll find a good mix of travelers here, from young families to couples of all ages and singles, however, Cayo Santa Maria is a bit of a quieter destination, so single travelers might prefer a larger destination such as Varadero. The grounds here are well kept, as well, there are pools for all types from quiet and relaxing to lively and active. A great option for a all travelers!
