The Melia Buenavista has snagged a whole trio of white-sand beaches. You won’t have to share them either, thanks to the away-from-it-all location.
The beach is the centre of attention at the adults-only Melia Buenavista. The property’s surrounded by sandy coves, so you’ll have no problem finding your own patch to stretch out on.
The diving is top-notch – don a mask and you can snorkel right off the beach. The highly-polished interiors mean looks is another thing this place has going for it.

Great hotel! Amazing location with great service. The staff was really helpfull and always smiling. Special thanks to Lester and Andres for those amazing mojitos! The food needs some improvement specially the breakfast that did not have much fruit options. I will definitely come back! More
Second amazing vacation at Buenavista, interrupted by Irma
We were a little worried about going second time to the place that we loved so much 2 years ago. High expectations are dangerous component to successful vacation :-). It was another great experience. It was interrupted by the hurricane evacuation 3 days before our departure. Buenavista is a beautiful hotel run by hardworking people. There were few hiccups here and there and some little things did not go the way we were expecting however It is possibly the best hotel in Cuba. I hope Melia Buenavista will be recovered soon after the hurricane. My heart goes to all the employees who lost their jobs. If or when it is rebuilt we will be among the first people to visit! :-)More
We were there in May and had a lovely time. The rooms and views were so amazing! Staff was so accommodating and great room service. The bar was a fun place to meet new friends and have some fun entertainment. Not many places where you have live music and models all in one night. **Do take bug spray if you are a person that gets bitten by mosquitos or no see ums. I was eaten alive one night but my husband didn't get a single bite. Beaches were fantastic but laying by the pool with internet and a bar was also great! I hope this place wasn't too hurt by the recent hurricane! I'd love to go back.More

Absolutely beautiful place. Brilliant apartments, clean and spacious. We had our own butler who couldn't have done more to help. Maid in twice a day, and mini bar stocked daily. Good choice of restaurants. Only yards from beach and pool. Only downside was the mosquitoes, bitten everywhere, wasn't waned about how bad they would be. Would not hesitate to go back.More
30th Wedding Anniversary , Amazing!!
After a six hour car journey from sensational Havana to Cayo Santa Maria , we arrived at the Buena vista resort , remote at the far end of the island . Our room was outstanding overlooking the ocean where the sun set blissfully every evening, everything from butler service ,champagne and rose scented baths!! There are three beaches all beautiful but only one you can swim in as the water is far too shallow and more like a mangrove in the others. At first our experience with the food was such a dissapointment the breakfast and lunch time snacks were limited and stale, my husband was not a happy boy☹️This along with early morning and early evening mosquito invasion from hell, with me ending up in a clinic to get medication, things were not looking good!!!!! Taking in to account that this is an up and coming island that needs attention, there is no where to visit outside the resort , only other resorts , which are not great so you are stuck where you are! I have never in my life with all the places I've visited experienced such exceptional customer service to turn a dissapoining situation into an amazing experience!!! Delesandro the manager went over and above his duties to deliver the most delicious meals , attention to detail, assuring fresh food and produce were available, stunning in room breakfast and a departing lunch to die for, our anniverary lobster meal out in the ocean surpassed all expectation thank you so much!!! A huge thanks to all the staff especially Armando and Belkis who's compassion and attention to detail were exemplary! We will definitely return , if our friends Larry and Gill are reading this , you are two awesome people who made our trip!! Batton,down the hatches we are coming to canada😃😃 If your in two mind about visiting this hotel, don't be !! DO it, no where will you get such hospitality and generous of spirit people , the reps from the holiday place were magnificent too!! Book your trip now Huge thanks from mr mrs Kemp😘💃🏻🍾xxxxxxxMore
