The room service orders were always late and cold. After her food poison, we had to pay $30.00 for the hotel health unit. I spent $200.00... More

The beautiful pictures of this resort do not even do it justice. Melia was the perfect way to relax after a 10 day safari filled with "african massage roads."

the services are good, just make sure you inform people about the tax fee early enough not when they are exiting. and let us know about the rate for each room on the sites like booking.com and the other sites.
