I want to start by saying this is my first trip to DR so i have nothing to compare it to. The resort is huge, there are two parts to the resort, the main part which has rooms and most of the restaurants. then there is another part called The Level. The main part has no pools or beaches all...

If I could give half stars their real rating would be a 2.5. Check in was slow. Actually it was slower than slow so that made the experience at this hotel start off on the wrong foot. The whole check in process was completely disorganized and hectic. For the life of me I could not figure out why. The hostesses...

Once we again we had another excellent holiday. This resort is a paradise and the staff is more than great. We would like to mention some of the staff that were reponsible for making our holiday extraordinary:Osiris Cid,Louis, Isaury,Coral, Juon,Ariel Cid and Nehemias.

We recently returned from a 10 day wonderful family holiday (3 children 10,7,5) at the Melia Caribe tropical. The resort is huge and beautifully kept. Never had issues getting around by either train or golf cart. We can't say enough about the genuine professionalism of Carlos Kingsley (guest services manager), who ensured our stay was as special as possible. Nothing...

My husband and kids (12&14) stayed 4 nights at this resort and were satisfied with our stay. We booked through the Melia itself and I think that is why we had an easy check in experience- only 20 minutes, nothing like the hours others had mentioned. We also received a room near the beach/pool area as we requested. This made...

We just returned from our stay at the Melia and had an excellent experience. The beach was fantastic and clean. The pool was HUGE and my Grandson loved it. He also got to try SNUBA in the pool for free. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Food was good and plentiful. Not gourmet but very adequate. Casino small...

Cons: Not only did my husband and I feel like the "honeymooners" with our beds (twins) completely separate in our " junior suite"!!!!, but our main showerhead was broken and the mirror above our heads was shattered in many pieces. The food was inedible. First time I've ever lost weight during an all inclusive. The rooms are really outdated and...

By far the worst vacation experience I ever had. My wife and I booked this trip on Book it.com and they are also horrible to deal with. We paid for the Adults level only suites and when we checked in it took over 2 hours. I suspected something at the time because of the looks various staff were giving us....

We went in April 2017 with our 2 little boys (4 and 6 years) and had a blast! One of the best Caribbean vacation we ever did. The resort was incredible and the reason it was so good. Before going, I always look up bad reviews, so I got wary for no reason (bad habit...). So here are some comments:...
