We love this resort, and so for the 4th time went for a week in Nov/10. It is still beautiful place and overall great food and staff, but we did have a few major concerns this time. First, they have started charging for the Japanese Restaurant. This is supposed to be an all-inclusive, so we were not happy about having...

What did I do before going on this trip? I read the reviews on Trip Advisor as I tell my clients not to do! But since I did I thought I would write a review. The Melia was beautiful. Our room was awesome. It was very large and spacious. Loved the double shower and the jacuzzi tub in the room....

Recently stayed at the Melia and have to say that the Resort overall is very nice. The grounds are beautiful with lush vegetation that is well manicured and the Beach is equally as nice. Keep in mind that this resort is Huge and if you are not comfortable walking you may want to request a room closer to the Lobby....

First, make sure you upgrade. This allows access to a private pool, restaurant, and private area on the beach. MANY tiki's and cabanas. Never had to fight for a place to sit or rest. The cabanas were wonderful for afternoon naps near the pool. The food was EXCELLENT in the Gabby Club, which was the upgrade. There's a private snack...
