If you go here, upgrade to Royal Service. This is a large resort and in Royal Service not only do you get better service, a private dining area that is super yummy, room service etc. but rides to whereever you need to go vs. taking the train all of the time. That being said, our three year old wanted to... More

First I would like to say that the hotel is immaculate BUT I do believe that if you booked a junior deluxe suite then you may want to upgrade to the romance suite. We didn't get there until late Thursday and we were tired so after finding our room because it is confusing until you get to know the property... More

My wife, 10 year old daughter, and I went for a week. I agree with some of the other reviews about the shabbyness of the regular rooms. For the most part, everything worked in the room and the beds were quite comfortable. The t.v. was old and fuzzed out a lot, the towels were old, but the air conditioning worked... More

I recently visited the Melia for a wedding. The resort is absolutely beautiful. We did get royal service which is the way to go when you visit there. You are very well taken care of with royal service and you have your own pool and restaurant. I would like to thank Samuel and Abel for being outstanding. We traveled with... More

Our family just returned from our first trip to Punta Cana in a more relaxed and refreshed state. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this wonderful place. We participated in just enough of the Melia's many activities to keep us engaged, but still allow for some R&R. My kids were too old for the Flintstone's scene so they didn't partake... More
