This is the third Gran Melia that I've had the pleasure of staying within while traveling to different places. We chose this resort feeling confident that we would not be let down, since the other properties under this chain that we have stayed have been gorgeous and have all met our expectations. With that said, here are some, "High's," and, "Low's." :
*Large resort, on the beach, with clean, well taken care of grounds.
*Friendly, hospitable staff.
*Clean, spacious rooms.
*Beautiful (Clean) pool.
*Intimate dining/beautiful restaurants
*Not many activities on the resort itself
*Food is bland, not very ethnic
*Resort is rather big so it takes a long time to ride out of the resort (about 10 minutes, by car, just to leave the property)
*This property looks EXACTLY like the Gran Melia in Dominican Republic. Same layout, same pool, same lobby, same rooms. (I listed this as a low because I personally like new experiences when I travel to different places.)
Side Note: Our original plan was to stay at El conquistador, the Waldorf property in Pr, because we heard that it was the best. We chose the Gran Melia because it was more affordable and we planned to visit the Waldorf property one day during our stay in PR. We did and, much to our surprise, decided that our resort was more to our liking then the Warldorf property.
