Melia caribe

When we checked in . we waited extra 2 hours for our keycards to work. Then 2 nights later keycards stopped working again. Room service was just as bad, all they did is replace towels nothing else. Trash was full for all 7 night stay. Also this resort is all inclusive but they charge 50$ pp for hibachi restaurant and steak restaurant. So technically this resort isnt all inclusive. Dont go to this resort save some money and go to better one.

Spend More Money and Stay Elsewhere

I have mixed emotions about my stay at Meliá.... the first issue being that the resort put my boyfriend and I at Meliá Punta Cana (adults only) instead of Caribe, which you would think is a pro but actually the Caribe side is superior. Although you can use both sides, our side was desolate at night, The buffet on our side was inedible at all hours, and there were no activities. The resort itself is so big and spread out you need to take a golf cart EVERYWHERE. There are a lot of restaurants but most are closed half the time. The Dominican restaurant (the main restaurant we wanted to go to) was closed for the week??? How do you have a resort in DR without traditional food available. This was extremely disappointing. Out of 10 or more restaurants how is there only 2-3 available during our entire stay. I feel like I was cheated out of what was advertised. I shouldn't forget to mention we didn't have water for multiple hours one day when my boyfriend and I were waiting to shower and use the bathroom, we could not. The beach itself was beautiful but a 20 min walk from our room. Stay somewhere else.

What's to Love

Chillaxing on the sugar-white sandy beach, cocktail in hand, watching the azure waves roll in.

The food - travelers reports that everything, especially the steak and lobster tails, is crazy good.

Two ginormous, free-form pools, each with swim-up bars for your day drinking pleasure.

The grounds keeping staff who offer coconuts and cut them open, fresh for you to drink.

Children as young as 8 months old get to enjoy the brand new Kids Club featuring the all new, Splash Island water park.

 

What We'd Change

It might be gorgeous, but this place is huge! That's why we love the complimentary shuttles that take guests around the resort.

 

Why You Should Go

It's just 20 minutes from the airport - you'll be basking in the warm Dominican sun pronto.

There's wave after wave of water sports: sunfish sailing, water bikes, kayaking, canoeing and more.

Kids Club open for children from 8 months old.

It's a worldwide taste trek with 10 nosh spots that include French, Japanese, Thai, American classics and more.

Guests ages 18+ can enjoy even more dining options at the next door sister property, Melia Punta Cana Beach.
