This was a first time experience for me at an all inclusive vacation resort. The resort is beautiful-paradise actually. This was a couples vacation so very glad we chose the Level Adults Only section. The resort is large so golf cart service/train service is useful for getting around. The dining selections were great. Although we tried 2 of the main... More

Returned from a four day/three night trip to Melia Caribe yesterday. I was a little leery based on some of the reviews I read on here. I can say, categorically, that the common complains you'll see here did not represent my experience at all. For starters, we chose to upgrade to The Level upon check-in. We were able to negotiate...

My daughter and I returned from a week long trip Jan 23-Jan 30. The weather was great, warm, 80's and the water was perfect. The beach and the pools are gorgeous and the staff is friendly and attentive. Bring your own blow up float. Wilson Perez, our beach server was amazing. Find him so you can be spoiled. The food...

I went there with my family and extended family (14 total) and everyone had a great time! The pool/swim up bar was awesome and we hung out there more often than not, the rooms were clean and the food was great! The resort had a lot to offer. Bars around every corner, a ton of restaurants and buffets, gift shops,... More

In short...the Melia is well worth the money! The food is absolutely outstanding, with a number of unique restaurants serving a wide variety of food. If you're staying on the Level-side there are an additional 5 restaurants to choose from. I highly recommend you hit up Gabi, Thai, and Mexican. All three were amazing meals. The staff are truly outstanding... More

This vacation was the first vacation my boyfriend and I took together and we were not disappointed. He booked it so I felt a little in the dark about what was included and what wasn't at first, however, the front desk was very helpful in letting us know. One thing I still don't know the answer to is if there... More

I loved Melia Caribe Tropical. I went on a girl vacation with a friend, and safety is always a concern. We were so impressed with the attention from everyone who worked there. They made us feel at home, safe and welcomed to their island. Lovely Dominican people ! We made many friends there. The resort is spotless....not a speck of... More

We recently stayed here in the Level adults only area and were quite unimpressed with the hotel. The good stuff: the beach, grounds and hotel room were beautiful and they have a casino (albeit where tables games don't start until 7pm) The bad stuff: the pool is not heated and was not warm enough to spend more than a few...
