Celebrated a destination 25th Wedding Anniversary with 18 family and friends. Melia Caribe Tropical responded to all our needs. We have the accommodations we requested; reservations for dinners at the various a la carte restaurants; and our actual 25th celebration event was exactly as I dreamed. The Event Planners did a great job to address all our concerns and offer... More

We loved this resort for our honeymoon. The grounds were immaculate, the service was 5 star, and the price was unbeatable. Quality of everything was great. We stayed in The Level and it was well worth the upgrade. We upgraded when we arrived without an issue. The private beach, restaurants, and service was A+....Hector always made sure we were taken...

The pool was very nice and the drinks were okay. I would recommend that you to save your money on the upgrades. I would compare the service to Hotel 8 (pretty much non-existent). I took well over $700 for tips and tipped EVERYBODY but it was hard to get service especially a ride in the golf cart to a restaurant.... More

I stayed at this resort for 5 days, 4 nights in December. I'll start with the pros: PROS: -Seeing this resort compared to the many others in Punta Cana, it is the most beautiful and scenic. Other resorts do not nearly have the wildlife, flowers, and beautiful scenery. Peacocks roam free on the property. It was a bit difficult to... More

Let's start with the good... The grounds on this resort are BEAUTIFUL. There's waterways woven about the grounds, with so much wildlife -- flamingos, storks, ducks, a TON of peacocks that wander about, a bunch of other native birds I don't know the name of -- so cool!! And the palms and vegetation are not just well taken care of,... More

My parents booked this trip for our entire family of 8 in four separate rooms as a family remembrance. The rooms were nice and clean. The grounds were very well manicured and many peacocks walk freely on the site. The food was mediocre, it was difficult to get a good quality meal at the many restaurants that were offered. Frankly,... More

We were there for a family wedding. It took 1.5 hrs for check in. They changed rooms three times on us during that time. Unsure of the reasoning. We were told the wedding group were in a block area. Not true. Had multiple issues with the room, from the Old Box style TV - only had 3 English channels, the... More

We went for our 1st wedding anniversary and bday and it was well worth it to celebrate it there. The hotel was huge and we stayed at The Level since we have no kids and wanted a bit extra luxury. This was the best choice and so worth the extra price! There is a difference in almost everything once you... More

First off if you are a couple, no kids, definitely stay at The Levels. There is a huge difference in treatment and amenities. Secondly our butler, Alfredo, was a waste of a tip.
