Rooms at Meliá Cayo Santa María

Meliá Cayo Santa María’s rooms and suites are distributed across two-storey bungalows with stunning views of the resort’s beautiful gardens as well as the pristine ocean stretching out into the distance. Rooms are elegantly but simply decorated in bright, bold colours, evoking the spirit of Cuban Creole culture while offering the highest levels of comfort and luxury.

Food and facilities

Meliá Cayo Santa María features no less than seven restaurants to choose from, spanning a variety of cuisines: El Amirante, boasting beautiful views of the resort’s lush gardens, is a speciality grill restaurant with a casual atmosphere, while El Portulano features modern takes on traditional regional dishes. Casa Da Vinci, meanwhile, is the place to go for classic Italian food, while Sakura offers exquisite Japanese food. There are also a range of bars where you can enjoy classic Cuban cocktails or delicious local coffee.

Activities at Meliá Cayo Santa María

While Meliá Cayo Santa María is certainly conducive for relaxing in the pool or ocean or recharging with an innovative treatment from the YHI-Spa, sporty types will love it here too: tennis and beach volleyball on dry land, and windsurfing, diving and fishing on water, are among the activities on offer. In the evening, why not head down to the resort’s club house, where all kinds of entertainment, singing, dancing, and professional themed shows, are staged.
