All in all a great hotel with very friendly staff. We especially liked the buffet in the evenings, and the breakfast was also delicious. The only thing that was a bit anoying at times was the noise at night from the lido up front; it seems the kids like enjoying after hours out there followiing their night club sprees. But... More

Unusually we found our experience of this hotel did not match many of those on TA. The Melia calls itself a resort hotel but to us was more like a city centre business hotel which did not compare to most other 5 star resort hotels we have stayed at. The style is very modern and fairly minimalistic, functional but lacking... More

It is a 4+ stars resort hotel. Great location overlooking the ocean. Nice clean rooms. Beautiful outdoor and indoor pools. Excellent breakfast. Friendly staff. Walking distance to plenty of good restaurants. Plenty of day tours operators along the street. This a place to lay back and enjoy your free time.

Stayed at this hotel for 4 days and found it to be very clean, pleasant, but most of all its in a great location.
