I expected more, I met other Melias around the world, so I was a bit disappointed with the Melia Punta Cana Bavaro. The variety of food restaurants, and the service did not show the standard of the network, it seemed to me that the manager did not inspect the dependencies to see if everything was right and did not worry...

Our instructor, Patricio, is top-notch. He taught us the method of making the drink of the Dominican, Mama Juana. We each made a bottle of our own as a souvenir, which consists of rum, wine and honey. Patricio is funny, informative, entertaining. Class act!

You can not expect in a resort of this side, that everything will be flawless. Small things happens. But the hotel has a great asset, the employees. They will overcome any minor thing that may occur. They are superheroes! Rafael and Patricia in the front desk are two excellent example of what I mean. The room are nice and clean!...

I've been coming to Punta Cana since I was very young, and we get such great service at this hotel that we've come back so many times I can't even count how many times I've been here in total anymore! We stayed in the Royal Service part, which is the upgraded suites and pool. The room was very clean, well...
