Really good hotel. Wonderful, big room with very comfortable bed. Beautiful see view and wonderful localisation. Very good service and everything what you need in the hotel. Clean with very nice food. Proms are in good place, so if you don't wanna join evening even you don't hear them. Strongly recommend!

We stayed here with our one year old and had a great time. Rooms spacious and well appointed, travel for lovely and side sea view a nice touch. Breakfast great and the staff were all great throughout the hotel. My only one niggle was cleaning of the rooms. Although they were cleaned daily the standard wasn't as high as other... More

Lovely hotel with fantastic facilities and great view from the sea-view balconies (well worth paying a little extra for). Indoor pool and gymnasium were a little dated, but useful for doing a workout / swim. Outdoor pool and bar area were amazing - great views over the ocean and fantastic serving staff. We stayed on the 5th floor and the... More

We had a stunning room and found the hotel to be really nice. Sadly we can't say the same about the one evening meal we ate there, at Massimos, their "smart" restaurant. However the hotel is well placed for a short walk to various other restaurants, so it wasn't a major problem. Hotel and staff were great, as were the... More

The Melia Mare is advertised as 5 star, however, with a couple of exceptions it certainly is not. We were wise to select a superior sea view room, which if not for the spacious balcony with twin sun beds and parasol, would have been average. The paintwork in the room in some areas was requiring repainting, there were weeds on... More

This was our 5th visit. At reception our instructions re eating/entertaining were scribbled onto our room card. No help with luggage. There appeared to be less staff about and less service around the pool and at breakfast. Our room(823)was kept well cleaned, however , it was sad to see such careless maintenance in the bathroom.
