Booked on Melia website. All seemed glorious. Emailed concierge to enquire about Airport Transfer options. No reply at all, its busy season so we forgive them and used another provider. My main gripe is the room description on the website and the reality when you arrive. Website room description . "SUPREME ROOM SEA VIEW Right on the seafront, overlooking the... More

Came back to see Rocio, Abel and their team, this time with my 2 children who are turning 21 and 18 - there was plenty for them to do and they really appreciated the fact that they were spoilt for the whole of the 6 day break. We stayed in a Junior Suite as we did not want separate rooms... More

I'm on my last day & I can honestly say it is the best hotel in the world. The staff are amazing. It's difficult to remember all their names.

Excellent customer service and hospitality. Glad we opted for the red glove service as we were able to have light snacks and drinks (alcohol too) throughout the day. Very good location for a healthy walk to restaurants for dinner. Good pool side service and excellent breakfast. Nice spa too!

Stayed with my Wife for 3 nights for a midweek break. Booked the regular seaview half board package as we didn't feel the extra perks of red level were needed. 1st impressions of the hotel fantastic, bars, restaurants and lobby in fine condition along with the great gardens and pools. Staff mostly very welcoming and polite but hardly enough of... More

Great hotel near the boardwalk. Disappointed that the outdoor pool was not heated but I found the indoor pool. Regular entertainment and overall great resort feel. Breakfast was amazing and the grounds made me feel like I was in an exotic luxury escape. Better suited for older couples. Location is good but I felt the Banus area had more going... More

Sea view VIP level room. Bathroom a little dated but otherwise fine. Service is good, but very slow. Room has an adequate size. The king bed was really two twins put together which is somewhat uncomfortable. The majority of guests were either families or elder people.
