The views from the beach was breath taking. It had to be one of my favorite beaches I've ever been to. There's a local bus that's only 5 pesos roundtrip that takes you to the beach.

We got moved to this hotel after 6 days from the dump we was in before . It was ok but still a average hotel and not a 5 star plus as advertised. won't be returning to Cuba again .

Lovely beach and views of the sea are amazing. Would recommend going first thing in the morning to chill out as it can get very busy. the bus only cost 5peso’s each return which was very good. Only negative is the charge on sun loungers

Best bit of the holiday for me was this beach. 10 cuc for a bed including 3x drinks vouchers. Lots of starfish. Some other fish (not that much tbf). Advise you to get a hobie-cat to the reef to see lots and lots of fish!

If you do not have a decent beach at your resort take the time to visit here. We booked an excursion via Sunwing here for $24. This gets you transportation, a chair on the beach, lunch, and two drinks. I think you can do this...More

We recently cycled from the Iberostar Daiquiri to PP & took us 30mins.You could easily walk it or if the Melia has bikes,cycle there like we did. It is a nice beach but nothing to rave about though.
