To give you an idea, Sol Melia has 360 rooms: 358 Double Standard, 2 Junior Suite, and Las Dunas had 925 rooms....... so you can see the difference. Neither is small but one is huge compared to the other.
The food was fantastic, we tend to avoid the buffet's at these places, but when forcecd to eat there one night, were pleasantly surprised! it was great! huge choice, fresh food etc.. the buffet dining room is enclosed so no problem with mossies. If you want head onto tripadvisor and you can read my review. We even saw a wedding going on at the beach! it was sooooo nice! My son is getting married at Las Dunas in January '10.
Best of luck and you'll not be disappointed! btw, I could have given it a 5* which it probably is for Cuba.....it's a great place, very quiet if that's what you're looking for.....read away! Complaints!!!!! ? - Review of Melia Cayo Santa Maria, Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba - TripAdvisor

I am getting married at the Las Dunas - the Melia Cayo Santa Maria sounds nice too - but it wasn't an option for us as we have at least one child coming with us. I think the MLD has more options for wedding locations, but to be honest I'm not really sure about the wedding options for MCSM, maybe you could talk to a TA with experience planning weddings at both? Good luck deciding!!

My first trip to Cuba was to the Melia Cayo Santa Maria resort and it is absolutely GORGEOUS. The only down side is the trip from the airport to the resort ... it's bloody LONG. And the resort is very, very isolated in its location ... though it is a gorgeous location!
Hubby and I were married at the Melia Cayo Guillermo and we loved it. It's in the same region as the Melia Cayo Santa Maria (they are pretty close) but it's a bit closer to the airport and to other activities and things and it was overall the perfect resort - and we were there for two weeks!!
The food was AMAZING at the Cayo Guillermo as well ... and the staff ... amazing! I have yet to put up a review of the resort (I know, I know) ... but if you want more info regarding either resort (Cayo Santa Maria as a visitor, and Cayo Guillermo as a bride) just send me a message!
