This is our 2nd visit to Punta Cana. We decided to try Melia Caribe Tropical because they offered 2 rounds of free golf for 1 week stay. I was blown away by the beautiful grounds when we first got there. There were so many different species of birds, plants, flowers and trees. They so professionally arranged. We upgraded to the Romance Suites, with in-room jacuzzi. This really made the stay really pleasant. In additional to the free golf rounds, the resort offerred many other free beach related activities such as swimming, wind surfing, snorkeling, kajaking, Hobie Cat sailing, volley ball, zumba, latin dance, Mamajuna making, curling, or just relaxing with a beach chair and several others that I didn't know. Some paid activities such as para-sailing, scuba diving, off-shore fishing and various kinds of power boating. It also has one the most elaborate set of pools I've seen, with a swim-up bar. Anyway, one never seem to run out things to do. My only complain would probably be the average quality of food. The food at the 2 buffet restaurants were acceptable. We tried 4 of the specialty restaurants that were covered by the hotel package. The services at all the restaurants were excellent. Except for the Capri, the food quality are OK. Since there is no fractional rating, I had to give the full 5-cirlce "Excellent" rating. I will cover the golf in another review.
