This experience was wonderful. The hotel offered a lot of different restaurant choices. The French restaurant was fabulous! The restaurant at the Level was spectacular! What I loved the best was the dancing on the beach (the lessons by the activity staff) and the dancing in the lobby at night and the Chill out party! Sooo fun! I want to... More

I must say it is a beautiful, very large resort. When I 1st arrived I was instantly greeted by a young lady who welcomed me and showed to the check in desk. The staff super friendly and attentive right from the start. I was traveling with an ex-patient who is now a very good friend ( Senior Editor @ NBC/CBS... More

The Melia was the best resort based on my brief view of the other resorts in the area on the day we went on our excursion. The grounds were beautiful and the villas were spacious and comforting. Excellent

My family wanted to go somewhere tropical for vacation and I researched like crazy to find something that would be perfect for everyone (ages 22 - 67) that wouldn't break the bank. I'm glad we chose Melia, it was a great experience. The price was awesome for an all-inclusive week for a family of five. Upgrading to the Level is... More

Me and 5 of my family members just got back from a 7 night stay. Service in this resort was horrible, it was way below our expectations. First, we were given the wrong room. Since we were all together, we requested our rooms to be as near as possible and they told us it was not possible since they were... More

Resort very good, very well-kept and super friendly and helpful employees. With very good restaurants with a superb breakfast and gourmet thematic dinners. The beach is fantastic and the Dominican people is the most sympathetic and hospitable I have recently become acquainted with. However this resort did not deserve my five stars because it needs to improve in some aspects.... More
