“Hotel Melia Bahamas”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

My wife and I stayed here from October 18- 22, 2014. We were supposed to stay until the 25th. The hotel itself has construction going on. It is noisy and starts about 7AM and goes through out most of the day. They are also doing interior construction on a floor (not sure which one and also at a bar area restaurant named EstaVida. Stay someplace else!! Spend your money elsewhere!! we ended up going home early due to noise. We were on 8th floor, room in center (west side). the view was nice. They gave us this room only after we complained about initial room (room 737) which had a side view of some water, the roof of another building with active construction on it, with tons of debris. The hotel clerk on check in had an attitude. She did not like the rate we were paying on our initial 7 day visit. (we booked in March). She asked me to show her a copy of my email to prove it. I said it should be on your screen. Luckily I had the top page of my rez with me but not the second sheet which had the price. She finally just said ok!!! All of the other people who worked at this resort were very, very friendly. We had the all inclusive package and it was worth it. Bar drinks $9.00, ( good drinks, not watered down),Hamburger with chips $19.00, Hot dog $14.00. The main restaurant right now is Aqos. It is pretty big. Waiters, etc provided excellent service and accomodated entree subs for my wife with no problem. Food was good to very good. No complaints. You can also do buffet dinner. Lunch near the outside pool and bar looking at water is very nice, they have a cooking station there and food was good and did not take too long. Bartenders are a little slow but nice. Like I said -real alcohol so you don't need to be guzzling these drinks anyway. They had plenty of top level Scotch, Vodka, etc. that was a little higher priced. Everything you purchase here has an automatic 15% gratuity added into it. Thats one reason for all inclusive. Hotel about 15 minutes from airport. Taxi drivers very friendly and knowledgeable. About $ 20.00 for 2 people plus tip. You can jump on # 10 bus to go down town to shop. Its a 10 minute ride. $1.25 pp. each way. You can also take water taxi from down town area to Atlantis. $8.00 R/T. These boats are OLD!! and they pack people on them. The operators were good though and the tour guides (mate) on the boats are funny. Yes they expect a tip. You of course don't have to give anything. There is an area there called the Fish Fry. It has old shacks and kiosks that sell local food. It is a big hang out for locals. we went there after we ate dinner at hotel. Glad we did. Not sure i would trust food served there. About 10 min from hotel via taxi. I would get a taxi for this one (we did)and keep your driver with you (we did) when you walk around (at night). Its not too seedy but it has potential. Anyway , not sure when construction is ending-someone said November for one area but there is enough jack hammering that it made us want to go home. YMMV. the beach is nice , plenty of lounges, etc. water sports also. When construction is ALL done You may want to consider. I won't go back though.

Room Tip: upper floors close to center.

Though the beach was beautiful, and the staff were all wonderful, I found the hotel in need of work. Renovations to parts of the hotel are under way, but it needs a complete overhaul. The wood on my bed was literally stripping off on the side, the bathroom faucets were worn, and the general appearance of the hotel was old. I'm not a fussy person, just didn't think this hotel was worth the money. Remember they charge you an additional $40/day on arrival, for facility fees. We also had to pay another $25/day for a cot. The room was cleaned well, the staff more than helpful, though the arrival desk was less than friendly. The restaurant (Aqua) was great for 1 or 2 meals, but limited menu. The food in the bar/lounge was very expensive ($17.50 for 4 chicken strips, no fries), beer $7-$9, wine more. The food at the outside restaurant was often cold, and also expensive. We paid $75 for lunch for 3, for essentially grilled cheese & chips (only 1 alcoholic beverage). The bar area around the pool was loud, which I know is to be expected. Thus we spent all our time at the beach. I don't know why they have to play their music so loud at 10:00 in the morning, however. The gift shop in the lobby is very expensive. $4.50 US for a bottle of juice. Head down to the ice cream shop in the hallway towards the casino, and it's $1.00 cheaper for the same thing. They also have sandwiches, and snacks, a little more reasonably priced. We hired a cab and drove to a large grocery store 10 minutes down the road. Though more expensive than home, much more reasonable. We paid $10/day for a bar fridge for our room, and had breakfasts and lunches from grocery store purchases. You can grab their local bus for $1.25 right outside the hotel - great way to see the local flair, and a lot cheaper than a cab. Heads right downtown Nassau. There's a KFC and other fast food stops around, but require a bus ride or cab ride to get there. The Poop Deck restaurant was nice, but again expensive. Good for one night out. Overall I don't think I'd go back.

Just recently visited Melia Hotel with my partner and we really enjoy our holiday in this place. Hotel is very nice not to big and clean. Location is quite far away from the downtown but you can catch the bus and 10 min you will be in town. However everything in the hotel is quite expensive e.g. small cup of beer $7 and small coke $3.5 where in the shops outside hotel you can find them for $2 and $1. Rooms are clean but our pillows smelled really bad i don't know why but it was a bit odd. Overall still very nice hotel with nice staff and rooms are not so expensive.

The hotel is in the process of refurbishment , lots of building work in the hotel and next to the beach, you can only escape it by leaving the hotel. No mention of this work being done when we booked or when we arrived or booking out. The beach is not clean although it is swept daily. The carpets in the bedrooms are dirty and the bathroom faucets are falling off the basin and bath fittings. However the staff were all very polite and helpful . Beware of the charging as the room rate does not include the resort charge of $40 per room per day, no mention of this on there adverts or at check in. I would not stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Check out other Hotels in Nassau and beware of extra charges.
