This was the perfect place to relax after a week spent climbing Mt Kilimanjaro. We spent three days at Melia in early February and enjoyed our stay very much. Service and Food were great; we particularly enjoyed our time at Gabi Beach during the day and sunset drinks and tapas at the Jetty Bar in the evening. Paul from Gabi... More

We are both vegetarian and avoid consumption of processed sugar and wheat. Not only were our requirements met, but our expectations were exceeded.
