My Husband and I spent a week at the Melia for our Honeymoon. We read all of the reviews for months before we decided on the Melia. We decided to ignore the negative reviews, because let's face it--some people are never happy. We made the right decision; the Melia was a great for price!
The Room- We upgraded our room to an M Experience Beach Front room, and it was worth it. You will be doing a lot of walking since the resort is spread out, but we found that we needed to walk around after over eating at the buffets. The bed was a little hard, but we had the foam pad added right away, and it worked just fine.
The Food- We are both picky eaters, but found that there was always something that we liked on the buffet and from room service. The omelet bar was awesome every morning! Order a chicken and cheese quesadilla from room service, they were wonderful!
The Bars- The drinks were great, they served top shelf liquor. We are young (I’m 29 and the husbands 31), and found that the bar closing at 1am in the lobby was never an issue.
The Beach- The beach was immaculate, the grounds of the hotel were constantly being groomed.
The Activities- We took part in most of the activities at the hotel. Water volleyball was fun, Casino Night & the Mexican Fiesta were great too!! As far as snorkeling, scuba diving, those activities should be purchased in town and not at the hotel, you can save money that way.
The Staff- The staff was wonderful. We tipped often, they deserve it. They work all day and night long to make you comfortable.
The Hotel- The Melia was really nice and it was very well taken care of. It was a bit modern and the lounge was a really comfy place to relax after a day of shopping in town. The pool is really nice, and the hot tub really relaxing.
Location- We loved that we were situated between Cabo San Lucas & San Jose and visited both cities. Cabo was a fun place to drink, shop, or take a charter out to fish. San Jose was the perfect sleepy little town to shop without hassle. We used the city busses several times, and it cost anywhere from $1 to $4 a person, depending on the time of day and where you got on. We also learned that with taxis; pay in pesos because it will save you a few dollars.
Things you have to see or do—Definitely go out on a boat. We took a private fishing charter out of Cabo San Lucas, and got to see the Arch, Sea Lions, and even whales! Eat at Gordo Lele’s Taco Stand in Cabo San Lucas, it’s a tiny little place with AMAZING tacos!! Visit San Jose, it’s not Cabo, but it’s a beautiful quiet town to walk around we ended up having just as much fun! Drink a waborita at Cabo Wabo, they were dangerously good! Do take the time to walk the beach at Sunset, it’s so pretty!! Take tons of sunscreen with you, we went through at least two full bottles!
We will definitely visit the Melia again in the future. We made lots of friends at the Melia! We great start to our married life together. It was a perfect spot for two active Honeymooners!
