Hotel Cayo Santa María

Resort in Cayerías del Norte

Open since 2013, this massive 846-room hotel (formerly the Eurostars) has already changed its name once. What hasn't changed is the Fuego y Hielo restaurant, one of the sleekest resort eateries hereabouts; the romantically inclined may appreciate the private dining in the middle of the three-level pool.

Earth-toned rooms are big and bright but can't shake off the straight-out-of-the-catalog feel. Overall, it's hard to see how this place offers the archipelago anything different.
