My Review of Resorts in Cayo Santa Maria in Cuba

Cayo Santa Maria in Cuba

The Cayos of Villa Clara is formed by three main cayos:  Cayo Las Brujas,  Cayo Ensenachos and Cayo Santa Maria. They are linked to the main island by a 48 mile highway across the ocean are particularly stunning. The ocean combines every kind of blue you could imagine and forms the backdrop to these lush green cayos. It is a natural haven covering some 77,844 hectares, home to various species of birds as well as giant turtles, even a refuge for Robinson’s Crusoe’s.   For centuries, the only people to visit the Cayos were pirates, smugglers and other people of ill repute who tried to hide there, but now is totally accessible for all of us via this fantastic causeway. Flights are available from Toronto and London starting Jan 19 to April 2017 with Air Transat . This area is a perfect destination for scuba diving and snorkeling among other water sports.


Melia Buenavista

Located on the western side of Cayo Santa Maria it is an exclusive adult-only resort with only 105 rooms. It is a quiet and relaxing atmosphere with three small beautiful beaches with different access from the hotel.  It is perfect for a honeymoon and couples who want to be away yet connected with the nature. The rooms are very close to the beach so no long walking distance.


Iberostar Ensenachos

This resort boasts two stunning beaches with transparent waters (long walking but totally worth it ). This is a huge luxury hacienda-style property with 3 different sections – Park Suite (families) Spa Suite (adults only ) with fabulous spa facilities and Grand Villa Section for ages 14 and up.

These hotels are  located further at the East side of Cayo Santa Maria, share same long beautiful beaches. They have an open concept design  so you can see the ocean from the lobbies.
