Just got back for 10 FANTASTIC days in Playa and Casa Melissa. Usually we do 5 days all- inclusive and 5 in a smaller hotel. This trip we did all 10 here. Great hotel, very clean and always smelled fresh in our ocean view room #254. Yes the beds were hard, but doable. The room was spacious. Our refrigerator worked wonderfully, it has a little freezer compartment that held a 2 1/2 gal zip loc bag full of ice. Our room had a safe, although friends in the lower lever did not. There is a coffee maker in the room, note you will only get 1 packet of coffee, they will charge you .70 for any others upon request, no more are left. We are picky coffee drinkers anyway, so we had brought our own coffee with a french press, which worked perfect warming the water thru the mr. coffee. Our A/c worked so good the 1st night was like a meat locker. The reviews about the TP is true they leave no extra, so I would get additional rolls from the cart or desk. The pool while we were there did lose sun at around 3:15, so if you want more sun, just move to the beach. The beach bar just north called WahWah was great, had great music and a fabulous Pig roast on Sundays. The bar just north of WahWah was cheaper and you could still hear the band.
Every one at the hotel was very friendly, Victor was the best!!
This hotel is right across the street from the local park, where cultural events /shows were always happening.
I highly recommend this hotel, for$$ it is well worth it. Nothing fancy, but new and clean, with a friendly staff.
Suggestions to the hotel: add the additional roll of TP so a quest doesn't run out, make sure to always leave clean wash clothes, 1 for EACH guest in the room, and the addition of a trash can in the room would be nice, the quart size can in the bathroom is WAY too small.
