When you're ready to escape the stress of daily life, there's nothing a solid game of golf won't solve at Gran Melia Gol
When you're ready to escape the stress of daily life, there's nothing a solid game of golf won't solve at Gran Melia Golf Resort Puerto Rico. The beachside resort's guests tee off at Trump International Golf Club, where two 18-hole, championship courses, designed by PGA-winner Tom Kite, are quite the challenge. Stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean and El Yunque Rainforest make this a golfer's paradise.

My husband summed it all up very well. Please read it carefully.
My wife and I arrived at the Gran Melia resort on the 9th of February,2011. We were eagerly looking forward to enjoying the beautiful environment.We presented our Cheap Caribbean papers and were told that we would only be allowed to use the two restaurants,Namia and Tempo for dinner. If we wanted to go to LE Pasion we would have to pay for the meal. We were also told that we could have breakfast at Le Soleil and lunch at the poolside restaurant. There was nothing else mentioned though we specifically asked if there was anything else. They emphasised that our drinks and food were prepayed in these areas.
We had a drink in the verandah outside the restaurants and they said that we would have to pay because we did not have it in the restaurant. We ordered Scotch on the rocks and they said we would have to pay for it as this was not included in the drinks we were allowed to have. We ordered breakfast in the room and expected to be charged a room service fee. They charged us for the whole meal as they claimed we were not allowed to have meals in the room under our plan. All this was told to us as we were getting ready to leave the resort and were settling our bill. I pointed out to the front desk that this was highly unethical as they had not clearly told us of these restrictions and limitations when we arrived. I also said that though the amount in question was small, it was the principle. I informed them that I would not come back ever.I also informed that if they treat guests like us in this shoddy fashion they would would be doing a great disservice to the people who own and run this place. I told them they need to reconsider their guest relations program. What could have been a truly wonderful vacation was completely ruined by the petty behavior demonstrated by the front desk. We were definitely planning to come back next year but after this I do not think we will return. The name of the manager I spoke to was Evalina.

When we first arrived, I was stunned at the beauty of the resort. Unfortunately the extremely slow and long check-in process made me crazy...someone needs to fix the way they check-in & out their guests. Oh and I don't understand how ANY hotel can charge so much to park your car. It's a racket!
The rooms are really nice, very comfy beds, but they don't use a fitted sheet on the mattress (nor a mattress pad) so all night your legs are getting caught up in the sheets, and you feel the mattress itself...very annoying. The room was clean. though the refrigerator in the room had an odor that was pretty nasty. And you can't fit much in there, it's shallow. I think it's meant to be a mini bar, but our room and the other people we travelled with had nothing in them.
The pools were beautiful, and large, though I was looking forward to the infinity pool featured on the website. But I was told it was for the "red level" members only. Really? And on the weekends they give deals to the locals and it sort of feels like you're at a public pool. The beach front is narrow and very rocky. Again I was told the "bigger beach" was further down and for the "red level" guests...
Now for the restaurants...can you say overpriced and awful? And that goes for room service too. Which ends at 11 pm! The best food was at the buffet breakfast. But ask for the deal, because we were told $23.95 pp at the front desk, and, when we got there we heard some people getting 2 for 1! So after a few bad meals, we ventured to the local places and ate like kings! The Pincho Factory and Il Verde BBQ are top notch!!! But these places are nothing to look at....
The location of the resort isn't that close to Old San Juan, so if you want to visit there, be prepared for a 45 min -1 hour ride each way. Though it's close to the rainforest and Luquillo, which has all the kiosks of fried food by the beach...yummy!
The resort is really beautiful, and I can see the attraction, but between the bad & overpriced food, and the location, I personally wouldn't go back. Oh and the staff isn't very friendly, though Iluminata who works at the Martini Bar is the best!!!! She makes great drinks and goes out of her way to talk to you.
And a shout out to CheapCaribbean.com. You guys rock!
The Resort was nice when we first arived. The second night we stayed in our room I felt something on me,I woke up and it was a HUGE roche it was nasty. I went to the office and they were very rude when i told thenm about the problem. They charge everything to your room so make sure you read eveything they charge i found alot of mistakes and when confronted again very rude and acted like they did not know what i was talking about. If you rent a car make sure you park it your self if you dont they will charge 25 a night just to park it for you they will charge your room. If you pay cash make Sure you get something saying you have pain in cash. If not they will still charge your room even though you have Paid, They do Not keep track of what they park or any transactions so if they charge your room and you have paid cash make sure you tell them and show them that you have paid them cash. On site food was not that grate its better if you go out to eat so you will be able to taste the culture food. Onsite food you we eating out side and the birds right away try to eat your food or even do droppings all they would do is shooo them away but really didnt block the interies so the birds will not fly in where we were eating angain very Nasty to have things fall in your food, but no matter they will still charger you. Do NOT get room service that is expensive its twice as much of what the actual food cost. Culture food AWESOME!! my son And I could not wait to come back home, due to what happend but

The Gran Melia Resort in Puerto Rico was very nice, especially if you go with your signifcant other. It was very quiet and peaceful. On the day we arrived, it started off a little rough. We requested a refrigerator because we needed to keep certain medication cold and the front desk told us they would send one to our room. Well when we got to our room they had brought us a cooler. They apparently did not have refrigerators, which they should have told us that from the get go. A cooler and refrigerator (two different things). The cooler they brought us was not working, so we called the front desk and they sent out another one. Since it was a "cooler" we had to wait more than an hour for it to actually cool. It worked for a while and then stopped working. We had to keep calling them to bring us a "working" cooler and eventually 2 days before leaving we had a complete working cooler. Also, the room was very nice and spacious, but it seems the floor was not clean when we arrived. There's no carpet and it seemed that the floor was never mopped. Our socks and feet were soo dirty. That was quite annoying. The first 4 hours in our room made us believe we had made a bad choice in hotel, but eventually everything got better. I would definately recommend this hotel to friends, but just let them know our experience to prepare them. I would NOT recommend room service though. They charged us $5 for a small bottle of water. Room service prices were outrageous and the food we ordered (pizza) was not good at all such a waste of money. The best thing to do is rent a car at the hotel from Avis (which runs about $99 per day) and stop at a store to buy water, snacks, etc. You definately will be spending alot of money at the hotel if you do not rent a car. Other than that, our trip was great! If we do travel again to Puerto Rico again we would probably like to stay closer to San Juan, since we were about 25 miles away from all the action. Make sure you take lots of OFF bug spray for the wonderful mosquitos and if you do not know any spanish make sure you take a spanish class before because alot of the hotel staff ONLY spoke spanish.

The meal plans vary in price - for a breakfast only plan it costs $25 per person, per day. Breakfast and dinner plans cost $106.75 per person, per day, and a breakfast, lunch and dinner plan costs $112.50 per person, per day. In a garden view room the Red level rooms are an additional $50 per night, and the ocean view rooms are an additional $150 per night, however this is based on availability and subject to change. Taxes and fees as listed include sales tax, airport taxes, etc.
It's an additional 100.00 a night!
Trust me...we saved by not doing it. Sign up for a "Flair Card" on the Sol Melia website. It saves you 20% on drinks, food, and dragonfly tours (10%)
They don't offer a meal plan but they do offer "royal service" which gives free breakfast for two each morning (saves 16 a piece) and free booze at night from 6-9pm in RS lounge.
The RS package cost us 217 addl total for 5 nights.
There is no meal plan but you will get discounts. The red room royalty is 100-200 more each night depending on your view.

Gran Melia Golf Resort--Is Butler Service Free in the Red Level Suites?7 answers
When they say Butler Service is included in a Red Level Oceanview Jr Suite, does that mean I will not have to pay for meals throughout my stay? Otherwise, what does it mean to have Butler Service included?
2 years, 33 months ago
Purchasing the Red Level upgrade does not mean that your meals will be included in your stay as the Gran Melia is not an all inclusive property. The Butler Service included in the upgrade to Red Level affords you the luxury of having a resort staff memeber available to help get you settled when you arrive, assist you with making dinner reservations, spa reservations, etc.
The only meal that is included for the Red Level Suite is the breakfast buffet; but they charge $17.00 per person for it, but it is well worth it.
I did not have the red level service, but what this may mean is you dont have to tip this butler, the food is overpriced and is no where, free, sometimes they give you a cocktail package at this level, my sister was at this level, and it was in a room, not the bar, and it was only beer and wine, house stuff, it was very cheesy, the place is beautiful but the food, other than the poolside bar all sucks, i mean, i could have done a better job myself, we paid 48dollars for a surf and turf meal, and it came with only one side, the salad was an extra 8 dollars, and the steak was surloin, and the 4 shrimp we got were not even considered medium sized and you could tell they were previously frozen!!!, tell me how can a place surrounded by ocean have the nerve to sell seafood at sixty dollars a platter and not even be fresh.
When they say butler service they been to take you to and from your hotel from. The only food that included in red-level is breakfast which is made to order and really good. you also get drinks from 6-9 daily and a private pool with no kids, the red level room have flat screen tvs and the other do not.
You still have to pay, but you will have a dedicated person.
The red level is the better plan. Your breakfast is free and you have a brunch in the evening from 6-9 which includes finger food and drinks. (soda, wine, and beer). It's not free it is included in your bill. But if you can not get off the resort that a cheap way to eat.
No, you will still have to pay for meals they are expensive too. The butler service really doesn't mean anything except when you check in they take your bags to your room for you.
Yes and the butlers were the best part of this resort!
Are the green fees included?if not how much are they6 answers
2 years, 31 months ago
Although the golfing is great here, the greens fees are not included in your room rate.
When I went there - it was all inclusive and all fees were included.
No not included.
They are not included. And, they're not open on Mondays. My husband priced it and I think it was about $90 a round per person.
No golf course on property, but Trump International has 2 right outside the gates.
No. Looked like a nice course. Donal Trump course where the play the Puetro Rico Open.
Is this a all inclusive (drinks and meals) resort?9 answers
1 year, 21 months ago
No, there is an optional Meal Plan available.
No, it used to be but is not all-inclusive anymore.
No it is not. Very pricey when it comes to meals and drinks.
I think the option is given but don't believe the food is worth the high price to pay for it.
Not all inclusive... nor were we offered
No resort in Puerto Rico offers all inclusive I did lots of research before going there, positive thing about it was we got to try local restaurants and great pinchos by the bioluminescent bay!
NO! Drinks and food are pricey here and average in quality.
No. The food is very expensive and poor quality.
What is the meal plan?6 answers
1 year, 19 months ago
Please note, that this resort is not an all inclusive resort and does not have a meal plan.
no meal plan. super expensive for not great food!
Meal plan included two meals a day plus certain drinks.
$22 AND UP PER MEAL, DRINKS $10 EACH, DON'T STAY THERE
No meal plans. Breakfast is buffet and costs $28 +/-. Lunch didnt even ask but from the pool I paid $50 for nachos, 6 wings 2 beers and a coke. Dinner is way up there too, the average plate was $32 p/p not including drinks. My recommendation to you is, get a rental ($70 for 4 days, gas $3.20/gallon Dollar Rent a Car). and drive to the actual town and eat there. Average prices for breakfast was $6 p/p (eggs, bacon, toasts, cafe con leche), lunch $10-$12 pork and steak, dinner $14-$22 lobster, steak and more seafood that you can imagine. Beers are $3 to $5 domestic, In the hotel are $6 plus tax and tip 10oz can.....................
Hope i Helped.
There is no meal plan, and all Restorants on the premises will charge you $50+ per dinner per person and food not good. A lot of good places in near by city for $20-30 per person per dinner
there is a charge for parking if we are guess? and we had a rented car11 answers
we are planing to go to Gran Melia Puerto Rico
1 year, 19 months ago
The majority of the resorts in Puerto Rico charge approximately $25-$35 per day for parking.
yes, we had a compact rental car there and was charge $16+ a day
Yes it is $16 a day...I recommend b/c if you decided to leave the resort the cab will be charging you about $50 one way.
yes 15 -20 dollars a day. unless you rent a car from the hotel...which is a challenge.
If you do not rent from the on site Avis dealer, you will be charged about $17 a day parking. Also be sure and park in the Avis lot and tell the attendents at the hotel that you are an Avis rental otherwise you will be charged. Our stay was not pleasant. I hope yours is.
It appeared that there was no extra charge for parking.
It is $25/day, but we know a couple who rented a car and had to argue with the front desk to get parking included. But be warned they did not book a package, so they had more flexibility.
NO CHARGE FOR PARKING, I DON'T THINK SO
yes, parking is $16 per day. But it's worth it. The resort is isolated and you will want a car to explore the island.
Yes. The fee is like $15-20 a day. Call the hotel directly. We rented a car and it was cheaper than the transfer and paying for excursions.
What if you want to travel alone? Single occupancy?3 answers
1 year, 17 months ago
It seems to be a couples/ family resort. IF you are alone...because you want to be....it will be just fine. But if you want to meet people or another single... this is not the place for you
Of course you are able to book this package as a single traveler! The prices reflected on the website are based on double occupancy at the resort. To determine the price of the trip with only one passenger, simply proceed through the booking, selecting 1 for the number of travelers and the booking will price accordingly.
NO, APPETIZERS ARE FROM $50 and up, drinks $10 each
NO IT MUST BE A DOUBLE OCCUPANCY
Is there an additional resort fee that is not included in the internet pricing?7 answers
1 year, 16 months ago
The Gran Melia Puerto Rico does not offer an all inclusive package for their reservations, however taxes and nightly fees are included in the package pricing. Any additions of meals, beverages, services or charges will be paid directly to the hotel at check out.
yes. you will be required to place a deposit on your room for any possible damage done during your stay ours was 500.
No more fees, unless you want a meal plan but you can pay for that ahead of time. It was the best thing we did.
$500 ASKED UP FRONT PRIOR TO GIVING YOU A KEY TO THE ROOM
Yes, parking, $15/day.
No. The only additional fee I paid was for parking. If you bring a car, parking is $16 per day. The resort is very isolated, so I do recommend getting a rental car.
There is a lot of fee`s that you are not informed. Make sure that you have $100 a day to be hold on your CC.
If we arrive before check-in, will the front desk hold onto luggage for guests until they're able to check in?6 answers
1 year, 16 months ago
The Gran Melia Puerto Rico will provide additional assistance to the best of their ability for guests who arrive before the scheduled check in time.
Yes, the bell hop will hold onto luggage for guests. We had to check out 3 hours prior to our shuttle back to the airport
Yes, they even checked us in and were able to use the hotel amenities.
NO, CUSTOMER SERVICE IS HORRIBLE, DON'T STAY THERE, IT TOOK A WHILE FOR SOMEONE TO COME AND GRAB OUR BAGS AND TAKE THEM TO A ROOM IN A GOLF CART, I HAD TO GET THEIR ATTENTION AND CALL AND PROBABLY ASK THREE DIFFERENT PEOPLE TO TAKE US TO THE ROOM WITH OUR LUGGAGE
Be prepared to wait awhile if you arrive before check-in time of 3pm...most of the rooms will not be ready...use this time to check out the resort and hang out poolside. the front desk will tag your luggage but it is just set out at the curb to the main entrance...I really did not see were it was very secure.
Yes. They allowed us to even use a hospitality suite to change so we could swim and enjoy the resort. They called our cell phones to let us know when our rooms were ready. We had red level, so I am not sure if that is a service exclusive to that package.
Can u go to other hotels to eat in their resturants ?6 answers
1 year, 16 months ago
Some resort restaurants are open to the public, however they may require reservations in advance. We recommend contacting the resort where the restaurant is located for additional information.
If you have a car to leave the property.
Not sure there were no hotels in the area.
Only if you have a rental car or are willing to hire a taxi. The restaurants at Gran Melia are horrible.
NO, ONCE YOU ARE IN THAT RESORT, YOU ARE TRAPPED LIKE IN JAIL, YOU WOULD NEED TO RENT A VEHICLE IF YOU WANT TO GO OUT OF THE RESORT AND FIND AFFORDABLE MEALS OUTSIDE OF RESORT. MEALS ARE MORE THAN $50, DRINKS $10 EACH
There are only 2 other resorts in the area. Not sure if you can get on their properties.
This resort is pretty isolated, so I recommend renting a car so that you can explore the island. You can leave the resort and eat anywhere you like.
Do kids under 12 stay free or do they pay a per person room charge?3 answers
1 year, 14 months ago
The age in which the junior rate begins is 17 years old. As long as there are two (2) adults already occupying a room, any child up to the age of 16 years old would not incur a charge for the room accommodations. However, please note that taxes may apply within the package for all ages.
Not sure, it should say when you book. Look under hotel amenities.
NO YOU PAY FOR THEM AS ADULTS, THEY CHARGE LIKE $250 PER KID FOR SECURITY DEPOSIT TO MAKE SURE IF ANYTHING BREAKS IN THE ROOMS THEY WILL RECOVER IT FROM THE $250
Do I have direct access to the beach with chairs and umbrellas and cabana boys?7 answers
1 year, 13 months ago
This resort is located on the beach. For the most accurate information on the exact setup of the beach or the presence of cabana boys, you would be best to check with the resort directly.
Yes.... personally, I suggest camping in a cabana instead.
Direct access, yes. No cabano boys!
Yes to direct access to the beach and chairs. The chairs are not always in good repair - the fabric was often dirty, torn and/or worn. There are no umbrellas - if you want shade it is available under the palm trees on the grassy area behind the beach. There are no cabana boys unless you rent a "Bali Bed" by the pool for $30/day. But beware there is very loud music at the pool beginning mid-day.
NO, THERE IS HARDLY ANY CHAIRS AND THERE IS NO UMBRELLAS, YOU CAN RENT A CABANA FOR A DAY BUT IT HAS VIEW TO THE POOL ONLY, NOT SURE HOW MUCH THEY CHARGE, AND THEY BRING YOU FOOD AND DRINK TO CABANA, VERY EXPENSIVE, FOOD RANGES FROM $55 TO $60 FOR APPETIZERS AND DRINKS ARE $10 EACH. DO NOT STAY THERE
Beach yes, cabana boys / waitresses no.
I read that the beach next to this hotel is rocky, is there a sandy beach also close by?9 answers
1 year, 12 months ago
Due to the location of the resort, there are not sandy beaches close by. Most of the sandy beaches are located closer to San Juan.
Not that we saw or could walk to.
The Wyndam - and it is close by - about 10 - 15 min drive When we went on the snorkel trip the couple we met said they couldn't even find one shell- lol We had them all at the Gran Melia! Also the Luquillo Beach was the clearest water - but I'm not sure what hotels are near it - That beach was about 20 minutes from Gran Melia and had a fun strip of bars/shops also -
It is very rocky - there is quite a bit of broken up coral in the water and on the beach. We heard from the owner of an ecotourism company that the beaches in Luqillo (about 15-20 minutes away) are very nice, but these are public, government-owned beaches and are not part of any hotel property.
NO, THERE IS NOTHING CLOSE BY, DO NOT RESERVE TO STAY IN THIS RESORT
No there's not another beach close by.
The beach has sand, albeit it's not very long. If you're facing the sun and chilling out it doesn't matter much. My kids had a blast on the beach and they did a lot of snokeling round the reefs 10ft out.
Loquillo beach is much bigger and sandier.. If you want to take a day at the beach, Take the ferry to Culebra at 9am our of Fajardo and check out Flamenco beach. Logistically, staying at the Grand Melia is really good for that.
the beach was very nice- and sandy- the only downside is i snorkeld and there is just millions of sand dollars on the bottom- no fish-
How far is this hotel from the airport?11 answers
11 months ago
20 minutes from the San Juan Metro area and 35 minutes from San Juan Puerto Rico Airport (SJU).
35-45 minutes via taxi
The hotel was about 45 minutes to an hour from the airport.
About a 30 min drive
About 30 minutes
45 MILES FROM AIRPORT, TAXI FEE TO GET THERE IS $72
20 Minutes or so. Traffic is crazy & the drivers there are nuts.
~30 minutes driving. Get a rental car so you can explore the island, the resort is pretty isolated.
It's about 30-40 minutes if you rent a car and take rt 3 all the way. You can cut some time down by taking rt66 but the rental car company charges you a $15 fee to use their ezpass on top of the toll. rt3 has a lot of lights and it looks a lot like some places along US1 in Florida
The airport is about 35-40 mins away depending on traffic.
Can you check in if your only 185 answers
9 months ago
At this resort you can check in at the age of 18. For more information and pricing please call us at 1-800-915-2322.
I'm not sure, but if you have a credit card you probably can. Call cheap carriebean help line. They should know.
I'm guessing yes, as long as your credit card is good. Call the resort directly to be sure.
I don't know but being 18 you will not want to stay at this place go to san juan where you will have more fun. The pictures are not what you think
I only need to know where do I press the bottom to make the booking for 3 nights in Puerto Rico. You provided no links or option to register. Does it still cost $399 if flying from Los Angeles?

Is there any plans for cheaper drinks? Meal plan possibly?8 answers
Me and my buddy are going to take a trip down and want an all inclusive hotel but we would like to go to puerto rico and just pay for our stuff, is it worth it? We do drink a lot so $10 a drink does not sound appealing at all
8 months ago
We are sorry, but our Puerto Rico resorts do not offer meal or drink plans.
NO DRINK PACAGE AND DRINKS ARE EXPENSIVE!!! DONT STAY HERE, STAY AT THE WYNDUM GRAND MAR
You can pay extra for a plan that includes breakfast and limited beer and wine, but it doesn't really save you any money. I don't think they offer an all inclusive plan. Drinks at the bar are aroun $8, and they are smaller than you expect. 6 oz pina colada, 3 oz martini...
Choose all inclusive, if you are a big drinker the resort will bankrupt you unless you get a room with a fridge and bring in your own?
To my knowledge...their are not any all-inclusive resorts in PR. Your best bet is to buy your drinks from a store and keep in your hotel room...it is better because most hotels sell watered down drinks anyhow
Drinks were surprisingly cheap at this resort. I'm used to paying $10-$14 a drink (I'm from NY), but the drinks at Gran Melia were usually $3-$7.
Buy yourself some good cheap local rum and stock the minifridge
you need to go to the actual town, if you stay at the hotel the will bleed you... go to old san juan and you will be paying about $4 per beer. If you drink rum or cocktails you are looking at $5 to $8 drinks. DONT STAY AT THE HOTEL. Also, quietly ask a bartender in town to do PLAN B, you dont pay for drinks just the tip, but it has to be a great tip. Also, make sure there is no supervisors in the place you are going behind them.

is there a casino on the resort or near by.6 answers
6 months ago
This resort does not have a casino on-site. You can find casinos in Old San Juan, which is approximately a 30 minute car ride.
Yes there is one in the wyndam which is about 15-20 min away. It is very small but has many slots, live music, and a few tables. Que Pasa? Is a visitors magazine that gives you a full discription of all the casinos on the island (as well as a million and one ideas and maps). Very helpful reading.
The casino at the hotel has closed. I don't know where the closest would be - but it would require a car or taxi to get you there. Definately none in walking distance.
No, there is no casino in or near by.

If you want to go to San Juan how is the best way to get bck there because i was told that cabs do not go there and there isnt a shuttle to San Juan and back to the hotel?
4 months ago
CheapCaribbean.com only has information regarding the roundtrip airport transfer service. We suggest contacting the resort directly regarding your inquiry as they would be best to assist you. The email address found directly from the resort's website is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The best option is to rent a car. We went and stayed in Rio Grande. We rented a car by the airport and was able to move from and to whenever we wanted. Traffic is not bad as some people mention it as long as you are on the main roads.
Cabs are available for $160 round trip for 4 people.
If you are planning to go to historic Old San Juan, there are cabs that the resort can provide with almost no waiting time. It's about 45 mins away, and costs about $80 + tip each way. Renting a car may be a better option, although parking is very difficult.
I don't know about the rest of San Juan, but I got cab transportation both to and from the airport, so I do think cabs go there. The drivers often provide a card and phone number as well so they can pick you back up when it is convenient.
There are tours but if you really want to go back and forth to San Juan, stay somewhere closer. It will cost you a small fortune to do the commute. So not worth it!
