The communal kitchen is great with labeled storage areas on the shelf and in the fridge for each room. The coffee each morning is nice.... More

My husband & I spent one night at Melo Melo & were very happy with our host Melanie, as she was very helpful & friendly. Our bungalow was very clean, but as far as comfortable - not so much! No soap, hand towels, extra roll of toilet paper... The outside area had a hammock & little table & chairs, but... More

Dear guest, We are really sorry to hear that your stay in Playa Santa Teresa and our hotel wasn't a pleasant one, as much as we are surprised about it since you didn't mention any bug problems in our terrace. We never hear about that before but as we are located in a tropical country we are surrounded by an... More

My husband & I stayed for 3 amazing weeks at Hotel Meli Melo and felt right at home from the start. Melanie & Frederick were great/helpful hosts and we loved our welcoming canines, Mirza & Chico. Our accommodations were clean(muchas gracias, Angela!), comfortable, and private - set within a lush, tropical landscape. The outdoor communal kitchen was a great place... More

I stayed here for 2 days in September 2014. My room was probably the most cheerful room I've ever had, with bright colored furniture and stripes on the walls. It was small, with 2 shelving units for clothes or other storage and a small chair. I used one of the shelves as a desk for my laptop computer and that... More

Welcoming, clean, cute, cozy... I don't think I could have had a better experience. The owners (Melanie and Frederico) personify the tranquility this place sends out. Relax... everything going to be great. They were welcoming and ready to help in whatever was needed. Location is perfect. Walking distance of beautiful beach (good waves) and also of local shops, restaurants, supermarket...... More

We had a fantastic two day stay at hotel meli melo. The hotel is very clean, stylish, and located 100m from the beach. It is run by a charming French couple who were a pleasure to meet. Excellent surfing lessons are available. Restaurants and shops on the doorstep. We will definitely go back.
