Hi Everyone!

 

I was wondering if any of you are getting married or have gotten married at the Melia Las Dunas?  If you're planning to get married there what has your experience been like so far?  If you have gotten married their I would really love to hear your experience and maybe see some wedding pictures.

 

I know I've been really set on having my wedding at the Melia Cayo Santa Maria; however, I thought about a rain plan and there isn't one that appeals very much to me.  The lobby at the Melia Las Dunas looks perfect for a rain plan.  Also the Melia Cayo Santa Maria is a smaller resort and the Las Dunas is much bigger.  My mom and dad are divorced and still not on the best terms also we think about 36 people out of the 78 people we're planning to invite might come so investigating a larger venue doesn't seem like a bad idea. 

 

Thanks

 

 - Dia

Hey Dia!

 

I looked into the Melia Las Dunas and it looked amazing! I have only heard positive reviews from this resort! It looks absolutely gorgeous for weddings and they have a really good private (free) dinner option if you have 16 people or more! I have been to the Playa Pesquero in Holguin which is set up identically to this resort and honestly the size of the resort was never an issue... through the centre of the resort are all the main things and nothing was really THAT far away. We loved the set up of the PLaya Pesquero and like I said this resort is pretty much identical so I think it would be a really good option!


I would have chosen this resort if it weren't so far away from Havana that's pretty much the only reason I didn't choose it. It was at the top of my list. Also from my understanding the price point for this resort is usually really good! Although I have no idea the price point compared to Melia Cayo Santa Maria.

Thanks for your input hun!  I love Cayo Santa Maria for my wedding because it's so remote and quiet.  We really want to be able to spend time with our families.  I looked up the price and it's pretty much the same and the same star rating too.  I've heard only positive reviews for Melia hotels and I've been to one and loved it, so I would really like to do my wedding at a Melia hotel.  I like some of the rain plan options at the Las Dunas.  No bride wants it to rain on her wedding day, but with an outdoor wedding it's always a possibility =(

I agree completely with you!! I am seriously hoping for no rain too! Ours is a covered terrace and they said it would be good even if its lightly raining; however, if its pouring we'll probably have to do it somewhere else. But I definitely agree with you its best to think of and know all your options because unfortunately we just cannot control weather and mother nature will do what it wants!
