This is the second visit to Melia Caribe Tropical in the Dominican Republic, and was very impressed with the resort , especially the "Adult Only" section. Beverages and foods was very good. Service was very good. We stay in the Level One section.

The staff of this resort exceeded ALL expectations! Each and every employee had a smile upon their face and a heartwarming "Hola" to each person they passed. The resort was spotlessly clean, manicured, and organized. We stayed at the "Level", and it was WELL WORTH the upgrade. Free, easy to access rides to the rest of the resort via golf... More

Visited 8/8-8/13 and it was wonderful. Stayed on the Adults Only Level and it was wonderful. Accomodations were great; food was great and service was great. Was surprised at how good the food was. Our servers were very attentive. Would definately visit this resort again. Reynoldo was a beach waiter. He was very attentive and service was best ever!

We travelled to the Melia Caribe property in June of this year. We did not get the upgrade to "Adults Level". The check in procedure took at least an hour, as they spend huge amounts of time trying to convince everyone to pay more and upgrade to the Adults Level. The regular rooms are nice but the air conditioning is... More

Spent a vacation here in February, it was nice and clean, nice friendly staff. The only complaint would be is that the nightly shows were not the best. The restaurants were good, we mostly ate at the Gali due to Hector and the bartenders. It is a large resort, which I recommend staying on the property. If you venture off... More

My husband and I stayed at the Melia Caribe Tropical for our anniversary this year (July 29-August 3 2014) and it was absolutely amazing. From the moment we got to the hotel we were impressed by the scenery and the staff. We were created with pina coladas and hospitality. The food at the tropical lobby and other buffets was fabulous.... More

This is our third trip to the Melia Caribe Tropical and we love it! Every time we have gotten the upgrade to the Level and it's definitely worth it! One thing that we are impressed by is the lack of bugs...We never saw flies around the food-ever...didn't have mosquito problems either. The entire facility is very clean and extremely well... More

Beautiful hotel with excellent staff. Specially on the Adults Level Pool where the guys (Yocy, Dionisio, Rafael, Ramón and Cristian) where absolutely fun. Their service was impecable and they treated you as if you were part of their family. If you got time for spa time, I recommend getting the "sueco" massage from Roxanna. Her hands are incredible. You won't... More
