Hotel Description

Melia Caribe Tropical: There's Plenty of Food and Fun for the Family

Ready to kick back and catch some rays? Whether you're alone, with someone special or taking the kids for the time of their lives, the Dominican Republic's beachfront Melia Caribe Tropical has an all inclusive package that dazzles the senses with a whopping 13 restaurants and 10 bars. So spoil yourself with a resort so nice, they give everything to you twice: theatres, pools and spas!

Two gigantic, free-form pools, each with a swim-up bar so you can grab a cerveza in style, dominate this resort with a total of 10 swimming options, including two pools just for kids. After you've toweled off, 13 restaurants offer a worldwide taste tour: from French bouillabaisse at Ma Maison and Japanese unagi rolls at Hokkaido, to Thai coconut soup at La Pagoda and cheeseburgers at the American Grill. Spend the evening taking in a live music or dance extravaganza at the theatres, or head to the Avenue Bar for the weekly Ibiza party.

The food and fun doesn't end for the little ones; Melia Caribe has a top-notch, kids' club that gives kids a resort experience all their own, from mini check-ins to mini buffets and dances. While the kids live it up, it's time for you to give those all inclusive water activities a workout: kayak, canoe, windsurf or take a water bike out. When you've had your fill of fun, relax in the hot, cedar-wood sauna or let the tension melt away during an outdoor massage while listening to the waves.
