The Starfish Hotel lines up six restaurants and a shed-load of activities. Plus, it’s right next to a long, white beach.
The Starfish Cayo Santa Maria is wrapped in neatly-preened gardens. A long white beach is less than a minute’s walk away – a wooden boardwalk leads you straight to the sand.
Within a 10-minute stroll, there’s a centre called Pueblo La Estrella, which is modelled on a colonial village. Here, you’ve got restaurants and craft shops, as well as regular live music performances in the plaza.

All inclusive resort on an impoverished island...tip well. You'll be treated like King or Queen. Don't be naive to think you won't be with out it. When I mention "tip well", I referring to often. Not a lot but not always. The staff greatly appreciates it & it shows. The facility: New, Modern, Western resort style. The food: Doesn't match the facility or the level of attention from the staff. The food has leaps & bounds to improve. Again, It's Cuba so one must keep things in perspective. More
This hotel is superb, we upgraded to the better suites and it was closer to the beach. The beach by the way is one of the best I've ever swam in, warm, sand bottom, calm. The restaurants and entertainment were great. Felt safe there. The only one thing is there's not much to do outside the resort. But If you're looking for time to shut it down and just be away this is the place to be. More

Great Melia resort, vacation and experience. Thank you :)
This was a great experience at this MELIA resort.Everyone is SO friendly&welcoming. Food at the beach bar is wonderful!Every person made our vacation feel like home away from home.Thank U to Everyone.More
I just returned from a 1 week stay with my Granddaughters. We were booked in at the Melia Las Dunas and Sunwing called to switch us to the Cayo Santa Maria. They also provided a few perks to us for making the switch, along with full access to both sites. In short we were in Cuba! So Yay! The hotel itself was a bit run down and did not have the bling of the Las Dumas but the staff was awesome. Very eager to help and make our stay pleasant. The food wasn't the best, however it kept us fed and we were not there for the food. In short if you are looking for class and high end. Do not choose this resort. If you are looking for friendly, kind and generous, go ahead and stay here. Overall no complaints and I would go back. On the plus side there are 300 rooms compared to 900 at Las Dunas so we always had beach chairs and chairs by the pool. The entertainment was fun and fast paced the Restaraunt were terrific. Good experience!More
Excellent hotel and beach
This seaside all inclusive hotel is perfect for vacation.The rooms are large enough and clean.The alacarte restaurants are acceptable but The food in general restaurants should be better in a 5 star hotel. The sea and The beach is very nice.The pinacolada is available at The seaside bar.The cuban music and entertainment at night was excellent.The drinks are free.I do recommend This hotel for vacation especially During winter in europe and north America.More
