The newish (2006) Las Dunas Hotel used to be the most upscale of the Meliá group's three Cayo Santa María properties (until the opening of the luxurious Melia Buenavista). This visual stunner rivals deluxe all-inclusive resorts elsewhere in the Caribbean, at least in ambiance and decor. The setting, of course, excels. The pristine white sands here are stupendous, as are the turquoise waters, although there is very little shade.

The grandiose lobby of Hotel Las Dunas, with its open plan and reflecting pools with fountains, sets the tone with a dramatic welcome. The architecture is part Caribbean, part Oriental – a colorful fusion is both literal and metaphorical sense, as Meliá's trademark blues and tropical pastels add a lively element.

This five-star resort is mega-sized, with 925 air-conditioned rooms, of which 19 are suites. All offer an endearing decor, highlighted by two-tone ceramic floors and harmonic use of either blue-and-white or rose-and-white subdued color schemes. Dainty wrought-iron and rich hardwood furniture harmonize with deep-cushioned rattan lounge chairs and sofas. You don't want for amenities, as satellite TVs, telephones, minibars, coffee-makers, in-room safes, and irons and ironing boards are standard. All very elegant!

Melia Las Dunas resort is built around a vast serpentine swimming pool with spacious sundecks, and the range of amenities here is hard to beat. Hotel Las Dunas has an extensive selection of bars, including the Lobby Bar, the Snack-bar and an Aqua Bar at each of its two swimming pools, the Beach Bar and the Beer Garden Bar. No less than seven full-service restaurants ensure that guests will find something they like. There are two buffet restaurants: one International and another Cuban in addition to the more specialized: Steak house, Mediterranean, Italian, and Beach Grill. There's even a Coppelia ice cream bar.

At Hotel Melia Las Dunas, you can work out with activities from aerobics and basketball to aqua bikes and tennis. And the spa here is first-class. Furthermore there is a discotheque, an animation room, massages, Jacuzzis, an activity club, a sports area, a baby club with a play area and its own swimming pool, and a convention room.

Guide to Cayo Santa Maria
Cayo Santa Maria lies at the western end of the Archipielago de Sabana-Camaguey, 25 km west of Cayo Guillermo, in the Bahia de Buenavista ecosystem, declared by UNESCO as a “Biosphere Reserve”; in a setting rich with endemic species protected by a beach of incomparable beauty, with more than ten kilometers of fine white sand and a sea of varying shades of blue.

The key (cayo) is united to the mainland by an impressive causeway called "El Pedraplen" constructed across the Bahia Buena Vista from the port of Caibarien at a cost of 100 million pesos. This engineering marvel built between 1989 and 1999, is over 48 km long and has 46 bridges, and is worthy of its Puente Alcantara Award. The bridges allow an exchange of tidal waters, an improvement over the earlier Cayo Coco causeway. Paving was completed in 1999, just as Las Brujas Airport was being built on Cayo Las Brujas, 45km northwest of Caibarien.

Travelers from Remedios, a colonial town with its parrish church and to Santa Clara, seat of the Ernesto Che Guevara Memorial, cross crystalline and tranquil waters and keys, and can observe hawks, pelicans and the amazing pink flamingo.
