We have zero regrets choosing Melia Caribe Tropical for our wedding. We had 24 guests, and although there was a mix up getting everyone close to each other for convenience getting together, everyone's feedback has been extremely positive. The staff is wonderful....shout out to Wilson and The Level Pool! There is food for every palate. Great quality, especially considering how... More

The trip and experience was great. I would definitely come back. Also, I'd like to point out that my best service came from José Rondon and Gregorio Decena at the Avenue Bar. That whole bar staff had great energy and were so much fun to order from. A definite must for any one staying there.

stayed jan 18-25 at melia caribe tropical.... we didn't upgrade to the level like many reviews said we should and it was an amazing vacation. The staff Johnny O and Maria at the check in were great, they went out of their way to make everything perfect. We stayed in building 1, right beside the beach. These rooms are family... More

We have been travelling to Melia Caribe Tropical over the past 8 years. I have travelled with family and friends.

Stayed at Melia Caribe for 8 days, 7 nights. While here, we had the pleasure of utilizing the LEVEL ADULTS ONLY area. By far, the best area to be in. Service was phenomenal by all waiters and staff, specifically Hector Javier Paredes, also known as "The NiÑo." His attention to all patrons was superb, and remembered not only us, but... More

Was here back in 2006. The place is a Huge resort but nice. The beach is Awesome and the food was Good. I enjoy going to the Dominican Republic, but the food doesn't always sit well with me. But Punta Cana's beaches are Very nice. enjoy
