WE have gone to this hotel in a party of five: me, my wife, two children and my sister in law. I have read several reviews here and was concerned. Ricardo Freire, a brazilian expert, said it was better to upgrade the services, so I decided foi the Royal Service. The rooms were large and the bahtroom was very good,...

We arrived very late one night at the Melia Caribe tropical. We had booked a family deluxe junior suite, situated close to the beach and the bam-bam club for children.

We stayed at the Melia Caribe Tropical from January 8 – January 11, 2011. Anniversary get-away. We were worried about staying, due to the bad reviews. We could not have picked a better paradise hotel to stay in. The beach was the same. The hotel room was beautiful, CLEAN (tip the house cleaner $2.00 US every day). Our fridge did...

Stayed here over the Christmas and New Year celebrations. First impressions - welcomng; spacious; stunning gardens; beautiful beach with end to end sunshine. Most of the staff were very friendly, happy and helpful, and the music and entertainment made for an enjoyable stay. Very impressed with the theme restaurants each having its own distinct feel.

My family and I stayed at Melia for the week leading up to New Years and departed on the 1st. We'd been avoiding the Caribbean for some years following a less than perfect experience in Jamaica.

We traveled to Melia Caribe last winter with our two small children. Our week was absolutely perfect. The room (std) was clean, and conviently located between the beach/pools and restaurants.
