Prior to checking in, we purchased $20 offer for breakfast and a city tour for two. It doesn't look like the offer is still running and I'm glad...I don't have to tell you not to get it, but you should probably be careful about any offers that they are running. Once we arrived I immediately realized that the breakfast/tour "deal" was going to be a ripoff. The tour is a trolly tour that costs $2 per person and breakfast is a continental breakfast of eggs and toast at Mocha (the hotel cafe by the pool). Mocha's regular menu is fairly reasonably priced so ordering the most expensive items on the menu would only make you just break even... Once we looked at the menu we immediately went to get a refund. The manager was not on duty so we had to go back and I've been assured that my card will not be charged for the package -- fingers crossed!
We walked all around the area in search of a breakfast options and came to the conclusion that Mocha was the best choice. We returned to Hotel Melia and ordered breakfast and coffee. Our server very graciously offered us a 10% discount for the inconvenience.
Our standard patio king room was fine. The ac worked well and everything was fairly clean (some damage in the bathroom that need repairs). It was a quite noisy at night as they moved around the wrought iron patio furniture at 2:00am.
