My husband and I stayed at the Melia Caribe Tropical from Sunday April 13th until Thursday April 17th. It was our first time in the Dominican Republic, and we booked the hotel at the suggestion of my aunt who had been there before. It was definitely an awesome choice - the room was beautiful, the service was great and of... More

Me and my gf stayed in the adults only and we are 22 and 20 years old. Not much night life that I saw. There's usually a little bit of dancing at the main bar which was fun. Nice beach but not the nicest I've seen. Over all had a great stay

Let's start from the beginning. We booked through tripadvisor for three families. At the time one of the families booked a level room (Level is the higher end of the resort, it used to be Royal Service). We were told to do it so I tried contacting tripadvisor and they said contact the hotel direct. After multiple phone calls I... More

This was our seventh stay at Caribe Tropical. Our last was February 2012 so much has changed since then, most dramatic the new Adults Only Level which took over almost half of the entire resort. The most noticable difference in this stay was the feeling of emptiness, of guests that is. Even though we were advised by a favorite butler... More

All of the staff at Melia is willing to help you. The more Spanish you speak, (or try to speak) the friendlier they are (which is fine because talking to them in English is weird anyways). However, the bartenders at the Lobby Bar are amazing, especially during the night. I made friends with all of them. I just came back... More

A little hesitant to write the review, because we wanted to keep thew secret to ourselves. Very briefly, there was no downside. Service, food beach, were all great. We stated in the Level section, which was superb. Great staff, especially Juan in the dining room. Rooms were great, grounds were beautiful. Entertainment was a little weak, but who cares? Late...

We just returned from a 6 night stay at Melia Caribe. Upon arrival we negotiated an upgrade to the Family Level. Thank god we did. The food and service in the "regular" part was dreadful. Conversely, the food, and particularly the service in the Level only restaurant, "Gabi" was excellent. We particularly enjoyed the waiters Samuel & Ramon. They were... More

This was my first visit to the Domenican Republic, and as i first got to the resort i was a little scared for the size of the place. But after 6 days there i must say that it was a great place to stay. The room was very nice, the service was good, all people very friendly and helpful, the... More

I have travelled to a number of AI resorts in the Caribbeans i.e. Now, Dreams, Club Med, Iberostar, Moon Palace, etc and this has to be the absolute worst! 1) the wifi is almost non-existent in this place. It was nearly impossible to sync with my friends who were there as well. Not to mention checking emails. 2) food is... More
