My husband and I stayed at the Melia from 2/15 to 2/19. This was our first time staying at a resort in Mexico - we've spent the last three vacations in Jamaica. Since this was going to be a short trip, we wanted to cut down on the travel time so we choose Cabo. I was not disappointed!
Arrival - we arranged our transfer through TransCabo. After a short wait at the airport we were on our way. The ride took about 20 minutes and we were the first resort stop. Check-in was quick and we were escorted to our room.
Room - our room was in building 2 on the top (4th) floor - Oceanview with a king bed. The room was very spacious and clean. The ceiling was vaulted since we were on the top floor and it definitely added to the spaciousness of the room. We had a view of the grounds and ocean. As others have mentioned, the beds are quite firm. Not too bad for the first two nights, but we requested a topper for the rest of the trip. The mini-fridge was stocked daily with 4 waters, 2 Pepsi's, 1 Pepsi Light and 1 7-Up. The water pressure in the shower was strong and the tub was slow to drain. I soon realized that I had the dials turned all the way up. Once adjusted, the pressure and drain were just fine.
Food - We ate breakfast daily at the buffet. The selection was great and available items changed daily. The mimosa and bloody mary bars were a nice touch. For dinner, we only tried one of the a la carte restaurants - Kujira. We both enjoyed our meals there. We also ordered room service on two occasions. There is a service charge of $10 which they will warn you about when you place your order. Service was quick and efficient and the food was great. The snack bar by the pool served hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza and nachos every day.
Pool - The pool is large and busy, but there is room for everyone. There were a lot of kids in the pool in the mornings, and then by afternoon there were more adults. There is a swim-up bar - serivce was quick, drinks were good. They have a large drink menu and I enjoyed trying different drinks. You do have to get up early to reserve a chair around the pool, but even if you get there later there is room beyond the pool. We made it down to the beach one day, but just to take a walk. There are loungers down on the beach as well, but the beach bar was not open and it is a hike from the resort to the water.
Staff - each and every staff member we came in contact with was friendly and eager to provide service. I never saw our housekeeper, but she was great! Our room was cleaned each day mid-morning, restocked and looked exactly as it did when we first checked in.
Area - we took the public bus (bus stop is right across the street) into Cabo one day. It was a couple dollars and took about 20-25 minutes. Decided to take a cab on the way back, it was $25. Worth the money to visit the Marina and beach areas.
Overall, this resort provided us with exactly what we wanted out of this vacation - a quick, relaxing time with no hassles. I would recommend it to those looking for the same. I'm sure our travels will bring us back to the Melia one day.
