I was attending a wedding here. First of all, the resort is HUGE - but not in a good way. Anything you want - pool, beach, restaurants are half a mile to a mile away. They offer golf carts and trains, but good luck getting any of them to pick you up when you call. Usually you have to chase... More

Unbelievable SERVICE from room reservations assigning 5 rooms in one building for family( 17 of us ). And room service insuring to assign room for a disable veteran, who at times has limited walking capability. We were treated as VIP from the moment we arrived---Jonathon at check in was great. Followed by VIP treatment throughout our stay by Ernesto and... More

We just returned today from a girls' trip to the Melia in Punta Cana. This resort is a well-maintained resort with all of the amenities you would need, but the amenities are not well-planned. We did not stay in the "Level" section so we cannot comment on that. 1) Food was amazing. The buffet is average to above-average. The restaurants... More

Melia Caribe was one of the best vacation my girlfriend and I ever had! The resort is humongous and has everything you need. In the Lobby Caribe, we received GREAT service from Ada Mercedes and Junior Cespedes. They made our stay much more relaxing and comfortable and was there whenever we needed them to be. Highly recommend this resort to... More

We stayed at Malia DR for 6 days, if you are planning to stay there don't waste time and upgrade to The Level it was great. The people there are friendly really try to make sure you enjoy every day.

- check- in the VIP lounge of the level lasted almost 90 minutes. Ridiculous! - we stayed in 3412 and regrettably ran into big AC defects. Their technician said "within 2/3 hours you will be fine". Yet it was and remained a temperature of 26/27 Celsius. Ceiling fan didnt work either. - a lady who promised to help and resolve... More
