Grounds are lovely, accommodations are very nice, the people could not be nicer...however there are a few things that a vacationer needs to be weary of 1. In the reserve, there are no elevators. The building is 3 floors, if you cannot manage stairs or are elderly then you must get a ground floor room and there is surcharge ($$) ( never previously advised) 2. in the Reserve, make sure you remember that you cannot fall out of bed onto a beach, they do advise this, but take it to heart...the beach is a golf carts ride away, 3. it's difficult to get a restaurant reservation. You cannot make reservations in advance of your stay, if you have dietary needs they probably will NOT be met, though the staff tries to be helpful when they can. Make all your nights reservations on the day you arrive and make certain you get the slip of paper with the confirmation or the reservation will not be honored. 4. Unfortunately with all the "All inclusive" hotels, the good thing is unlimited food and drink, the down side is the food is barely edible, but the upside is you won't gain weight on vacation. :) 5. Kids zone is good for small children, if kids are 8+ there's not a lot of activities included in the hotel, you'll have to get outside ($) excursions, and lastly, 6. There's a hard sell in the Club Melia time share...if you're not interested, hold strong, say no and carry on....we had a nice time, it beats snow, just just have to a savvy vacationer....enjoy
