This hotel is uber modern & cool, it doesnt feel like a 5* hotel to me and more like a top range 4*, it just lacked the qualities and finishes that you get in a lot of 5* hotels and the hotel itself really lacked character until you went outside.
The outside of this hotel is beautiful with a big pool area and a couple of 'mini' beaches, there is a direct access into the sea which is great and the views stretch over the expanse of the ocean which is breathtaking. The grounds are definitely the saviour of this hotel and I think it would be very difficult to enjoy it in the same way if the weather was not good.
The rooms are quite small and we were in a deluxe so the standard rooms must be even smaller. They are pokey and 'all bed' and not much space to navigate round. Bathroom is fine but with a small shower. However, the balcony is quite big and with a sea view made for a really stunning view to wake up to everyday and perfect for those pre-dinner naps!
I would stay here again, but you could only really stay here for 3 or 4 nights, no longer as the hotel isnt that big and it just isnt the kind of place you could make home for a long holiday.
It's well located being a 10 min drive from the port and there are also a few nice restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.
Service here is also not quite 5*, however after staying in a few Melia resorts I always find that the service is slightly sub-standard for the level of resort.
I would stay here again, but a few nights is enough.
