We had a great time here and it was partly because of the level of service received. Miss Georgiana Triplett was outstanding. I just ran into her while looking for someone else and i explained to her that i am having a surprise dinner for my MIL Bday and immediately she offered her GREAT SERVICE. She basically said leave it... More

I had a great time and the resort was beautiful. The only issue I had was the language barriers. There were very few people who work on the resort who should speak English. The beach and the pool area was awesome.

In one word, the Melia Caribe was bliss. My wife and I got married in August and it was amazing. We stayed as adult Level guests so although we paid a bit more we did indeed get more as well (go Level the rooms are insane). We really enjoyed the easy access and view of the awesome jetted tub from... More

My experience during my vacation was one of total Bliss. I was pampered and catered to from the moment of arrival till my departure. I say the Staff are the ones who make this experience worthwhile. They were all always courteous, always smiling and went beyond being thoughtful and helpful. The Level Family side is very comfortable, amenities are great.... More

We sent for our honeymoon in 2007 and were treated very well. We had various discounts, a superior room and also a honeymoon ceremony with a cake, sweets, finger foods and live entertainment. Very well organised. The food was very good and plentiful. There was a choice of the huge buffet or various themed restaurants (mexican, japanese, etc). The pool... More

Traveled with a friend for a quick summer break, and she and I loved this beachy, sunny, hospitable all-inclusive. If you are adults, stay in the Level - it has direct beach access, its own restaurants, use of non-motorized watersport (kayak, paddleboards - sign up the morning before), the service is excellent. We did take lots of small bills to... More

We just returned from 6 days at this phenomenal resort. We stayed at The Level Adults Only in a fabulous room close to the pool and the beach (2523). From check in to check out the service was over the top. The staff is outgoing, friendly, happy, helpful and they always have something good to say. The choice of restaurants... More

Please take the time to read the entire review to save yourself time, money and aggravation. When we booked Melia back in March, the reviews were mostly positive, reading through them again, I noticed that most of the positive reviews are for the Level side of the hotel which has much better service and food. As for the rest of... More

We stayed at the Melia Caribe Adults only section August 9-16 2015. When we arrived we were given a cold towel and a welcome drink. The check in took about 15 minutes. Our butler gave us a quick tour showed us our rooms and made sure everything worked in the room (never saw him after that). Our rooms were 2524,2525... More
