Sorry, this one will be long, but hopefully helpful. Before booking Melia I read reviews, some were not so good and of course it bothered me. But I thought how bad can it be? There will be beach, sun and food, what else can I ask for? Well we did have a good time after all, but there were things... More

Me and my family stayed here for the second year in a row, this time for two full weeks! I think it is important to look at the good and bads of staying somewhere, especially when you are looking to stay for a descent length of time. The Bads: 1. The Room design - to begin, our door had a... More

A VERY nice resort for the value, we stayed at Dreams Punta Cana last year and Melia far exceeded Dreams. The staff were very friendly and attentive to our needs, making sure our refrigerator and snacks were re-stocked daily. We stayed in the LEVEL area for adults only, and could have a golf cart take us anywhere on the resort... More

Ask for Llani Mercedes to give you a great swedish massage. Prices are great, always ask if there are any specials before booking. The atmosphere of the spa os great. They have natural nature sounds playing and the aromatherapy is wonderful. Will review the resort after the end of my stay.

We stayed at this resort last week (June 21-27) with family and friends. First impression: We had to wait near 2 hours for our luggage. We had several other issues but the main complaint from everyone in our 24 people party: AC won't go below 23-24 C (73.4-75.2 F). After changing rooms 4 times the service manager advised us they...

No one really cares about you. The food variety is horrible its the same thing every day. There was no entertainment in the pool area. My air conditioner was broken and the room was super hot. It was a waste of my 1 week vacation.

If you were a Scout, you'd naturally be prepared for the unexpected.....but for those who were not, here are a few things you should know about traveling and staying at this resort. 1) Be prepared to pay. When you land at the airport and start through customs, a $10 cash only fee, per person, is required to enter the country.... More

Other than all inclusive drinks everything at the resort was off. The food was tasteless, the workers were unhelpful, the rooms were filthy, no upgrades were available. Moving around the resort was a hassle and you would have to wait 20 mins for a golf cart or train to stop for you. The pool was decent and the landscape was... More

Stayed here over memorial day weekend for a babymoon. We were looking for an upscale all inclusive resort to just relax, lounge by the pool and eat good food and this resort was exactly what we were looking for. We were kindly upgraded to a beautiful family-size room, which offered spacious rooms. Bathroom was amazing! Great outdoor patio too. The... More

This is a beautiful hotel and I could not imagine having a better experience in Punta Cana. Although the resort is huge, you feel like you are only there with a few other guests. Plenty of space at the pools and beach, always had access to the water activities and there was very little/if any wait time for the restaurants.... More
