Great experience

The resort was amazing I had a lot a fun, felt safe ! But next time I’ll do adult only even though I had access to everything there ! People were amazing so many restaurants. Just didn’t really like that everything was so far , couldn’t walk ! Lol but my boyfriend loved every single part of our anniversary trip ! And if you want a nightlife resort this is not it ! It’s for relaxing more and family oriented.

Clean friendly food was decent grounds are immaculate and beautiful the room was clean kept everyday only one issue no service while on the beach but understandable the pool bar was close enough. Our first day we met everybody Loves Raymond he made our trip easy. We also did some deep sea fishing WAIT for the discounts they will lower the price. There are peddlers on the beach YOU say NO they go away they DON"T harass you at all. Were planning on going back with my son and his family they have a huge water park on premise for the kids VERY kid friendly resort they have an adult side also and adult pool if the kid thing is not your cup of tea. LOVE traveling with Cheap Caribbean eveything is so easy no unexpected bumps in the road. I also have add with all the going security is all over this place we felt very safe with our stay here

Great property - poor staff

Check in went well however they forgot to tell you not to drink the water from the room. They were more concerned about telling you where you could not go because you were not at a Level status. The rooms are very spacious and clean and the grounds are beautiful. The pool area for being refurbished looked a little weathered in some spots but was very nice. 10% of the staff was friendly and helpful the other 90% hardly even smiled. At breakfast if you were there without your significant other the waiters constantly are asking are you married are you here with anyone else. The waiters were more concerned congregating in one area talking than assisting customers that were sitting down eating. We were in a group and one of the rooms have a very bad cold or the front desk was very helpful in getting the room changed. We read reviews prior to going about the shuttles being packed I guess when we were there they were at half capacity so we always had a shuttle available to us. Liquor at all the bars was a very poor quality. We do not drink much but when we got our drinks we had to ask for them to put double the liquor in it that tasted of water down. If you wanted the Tito‘s vodka you would have to pay extra or be at level status. Plenty of other places to go in the Caribbean we have decided we would not return to this resort.

Melia was very disappointing.Food at the buffet was not good. It wasn’t terrible but much lower quality than at other 4 star resort. . The food , quality and variety of dishes at the various restaurants, were VERY DISAPPOINTIN. The buffets served most of the time the same dishes over and over again. I can't see my family returning to this resort.

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.

Hold on to something because you'll likely swoon when you see this legendary, white-sandy beach. For more cooling off, you can hit one of ten pools, two of which are free-form with swim-up bars and boast 12-person, cool-water spas. (That's a party.) Your little ones even have two pools of their own. Was that applause we just heard?
