Good Impression Upon Arrival, Then Down Hill

The arrival/check in process was a bit untimely. Upon arrival you were taken the entry point. From there, depending on your choice of lodging, were transported to your lodging check-in location. After a long travel day to get there more wait time was unwelcomed. The check-in took longer as many others were checking in at the same time. You were given a welcome drink, in hopes that would ease the discomfort of having to wait yet again. Once check-in began it went smoothly, and you given direction as to how to get to the building where your suite was located. Our bags arrived shortly thereafter. The resort is extremely large and in most instances like getting to one of the "cluster" of specialty restaurants being taken and by returned by cart was essential if staying in The Level. And in regards to the exactly where the specialty restaurants were located, there was no map in the room. Most often when being dropped off from a cart the driver would attempt to give directions once you entered the building. More signage would be very helpful! Within The Level, the 4 restaurants were average, and given the added expense of staying within this area the food should have been better, with the exception of the Steak House. The service was average as well and that applied to all 4 restaurants. The best features within The Level....the extremely large pool and its walk up/swim up bar and the proximity to the Sea. As common at facilities like these, one must go out early to get towels and stake a claim on pool and/or beach side chairs else be disappointed that are all taken, usually by about 9:30 AM. Our suite was of very good size, had a nice enough balcony but it was easy to see a refresh of the marble flooring and bathroom were overdue. The daytime housekeeping service came late in the afternoon and I asked that be changed to late morning. My request was met. The evening housekeeping service was sporatic...twice arriving at nearly 10PM and on our last night not at all. Complaints were not acted upon. In regards to the Beach...when walking to the Sea and making a left turn to take a walk the scenery is average as there are smaller/less attractive lodging and some shopping areas that look run down and likely would have tourist merchandise of low quality at higher prices. We were not enticed at all to enter simply based upon the outside look of these merchant locations. When turning right, the walk was even less desirable as other business were interjected along a wide swath of the beach. Many boat and other water sport businesses launched from the shore line. The strong smell of gasoline from the boats made the walk on the beach much less pleasant. The walking vendors with fake products such as fake cigars, birds for taking of photos etc were very annoying. We only walked that way once, were disappointed, and only used the opposite direction sparingly. This was a big minus to us as we have stayed elsewhere in Punta Cana and the long walks on the beach were enjoyed very much as higher class resorts line the beach in each direction and it was void, for the most part, of water sports companies at least for most of the distance we walked each way, which was approximately 1/2 mile. Overall, our experience was not as pleasant as we hoped it would be. The very best things were the weather, despite rain a couple of days, The Level pool and its bar with friendly and hard working staff, the general cleanliness of the walkways and buildings on the outside, and the ease of getting a cart to take us to various locations and bring us back to near our building or the lobby area. A very good point...the on property, upscale Palma Real shopping plaza with its nice stores and restaurants. Went visited the plaza more than once and appreciated the presence of what felt like extra security as well.

The best Vacation we've every had!!

I'll keep it short and sweet. It was the best vacation we've ever had! The Resort was beautiful! The food was Great! and the Staff was the best! Alex was always there and he catered to all of our needs. We went out for dinner at one of the 13 Restaurants we had to choose from and it was Valentines Day. When we got back to our room, Alex had drawn the water in the whirlpool hot tub, had flower pedals floating in the water and around the tub and a bottle of wine and chocolates waiting for us. It was a fantastic surprise. At the Gabi Bar, Evelin, and Dulce were absolutely the best bartenders we could meet. they always had a smile on their face and was always ready to serve our favorite drinks. they were both Incredible! We loved them and their smiles! When you get to the resort, you will appreciate the beauty and the landscape and the attention to detail, the resort speaks for itself, however in our opinion, the resort takes a back seat to the incredible people that work there that made our vacation very special! People like Alex, and Evelin, and Dulce. We will be coming back next year but this time we are bringing our whole family. Can't wait to see them again and enjoy another week in a beautiful country, a beautiful resort, with some of the friendliest people i have every met.

The best Vacation we've every had!! The best Vacation we've every had!!

Fantastic Resort

We,stayed 2/5/17-2/9/17 The service was spot on. The rooms were showing a little wear but we're clean, comfortable and quiet in the Level adults only area. We were less than 2 min from the beach but it was a 15 min stroll to the front loby area. There was plenty of transportation within the resort. Drinks were a little weak and certainly not the name brands. The food at the restaurants was just ok.. All beautifully presented but most of it was lacking much flavor. The buffets were much the same. The beach buffet for morning breakfast at the Level was a wonderful setting open air, fantastic views of the beach and ocean. We would go back. It was a fantastic stay at a beautiful resort all in all.

View from the beach buffet.

Pure Paradise

This was one of the best vacations my husband and I have been on. I am so glad we spent the extra money to upgrade to the Level which is the all inclusive adults side only. The staff at the Melia were over the top friendly and helpful in every way. Can you say VIP... I mean true VIP treatment. From the time we arrived to the minute we left. I felt like a Queen :) We are already talking about going again this year but taking the family and staying on the family side of the level of course. Cant wait to return ;)
