Me and a group of friends stayed at Melia Caribe Tropical two weeks ago... I just have to say that it was an amazing experience. The property itself is just gorgeous and the treatment and service received from the employees, was just outstanding. Perla Rowland, Gladys Batista from SMVC, ensured that our experience was an unforgettable one. The entertainment team,... More

What a wounderful time our wedding party had. The staff was great all around. One person stands out though, my boy raphael at the pool bar on caribe side. This resort hold an insane amount of people and Raphael always remembers my name and family. Thanks again guys what a great trip!

Just spent a week at this fabulous resort. We were impressed by the facilities and how friendly the Dominicans are. We went for the Royal Service upgrade and we don't regret spending the extra bucks for the private beach (and bar) along with access to the Gaby restaurant and bar. We ended up eating at the Gaby restaurant often as... More

We just got back from a weeks stay at the Melia and it was fantastic! If we ever go back to the Domincan Republic ( which is very likely!) we would not hesitate to stay at the Melia! Everyone there was so friendly and accomodating that every day was a pleasure! We especially have to mention Jesus Pena, who especially... More

Comfortable room. Lovely pool. The staff were helpful and the food in the Italian place was good and plentiful. The best thing for us were the grdens and outdoor areas. Worth a visit. Take insect repelant after dark - lots of it!!!

I stayed at Melia from April 19-25. I traveled with another couple and it was both of our first time at Melia and the DR. Before I left, I had read some reviews on here and was a little skeptical. But I decided to go there with an open mind and had a great time. FYI: house wine is bad... More

We had our 5 year old daughter with us and she absolutely loved the kids club. Everyday they did different activities: painting tshirts, swimming, beach activities, paper mache masks, eco... More

Enjoyed our weeklong stay here. It's big in area, so it takes a little bit to find your way around. Once you do, it's easy. It was so relaxing to go to the beach or pool. People do save chairs early, but we were able to find ones when we needed. The weather was wonderful, warm with enough of a... More
