I have reported on the Melas Resorted twice before and feel that all I need to do is update you on the facts. Over the last year the management and owners have carried out major alterations to further improve the hotel. Massive amounts of money have been spent on improving what was a brilliant hotel. On arrival the reception has been moved to a more convenient position which makes it easier to book yourselves in. Having been shown to our room 1805 (top floor) and being early hours in the morning we were not sure where we had been placed. As the sun rose and we opened the balcony doors we found ourselves on the top floor over the main entrance with a beautiful view overlooking the mountains. The whole area is spectacular. There has been a major renovation to the rooms and all the carpets have been removed and replaced with laminate flooring. Walls completely repainted and fixtures and fittings greatly improved. The old shower units have been replaced with wet floor showers and power shower. All new carpets in all the corridors and access lighting improved.
Now to the staff. Most of those that we knew from our last two visits had unfortunately gone and where replaced by others. Needless to say, they were impeccable in their appearance and the standard of service was second to none. We soon made friends with many of them who after a couple of days looked after us well and attended to our every need. It was soon apparent that they wanted to make our stay the best ever, and we were not to be disappointed. Room service is excellent and the room maid works extremely hard to ensure your rooms are kept to a high standard. Mini bare is topped up every day and if you require more than what s supplied just ask.
The pool area has not changed, nor has the beach. There are plenty of sun beds at both locations. A word of caution! At the pool area there is a temperature reading displaying time, humidity and of course the temperature. The temperature reading is well out to where it may show 30 degrees in fact we were able to show that the real temperature at the poolside was 37 degrees, this is important if you are a new arrival.
July and August is the time when many Russians and of course the Germans take their holidays so be prepared for some ignorance from some people but generally most of the Germans are polite. Russians do not queue, so be firm and point hem in the right direction and they will get the message.
There are several places to visit and I will be completing a trip advisor report on the following shops, restaurants and places. OTTOMAN RESTAURANT, NAR JEWELLERY, LEATHERGOODS FROM LEHRER TASCHE and APLLO’S TEMPLE so take a look it will be to your advantage.
Well I will sum up by saying that the Hotel was excellent, food excellent, staff excellent, facilities excellent. Well done Thomas Cook please keep this hotel on the books as it is well worth the money we spent.
