TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
I stayed here for a few nights on a business trip. Usually I stay at the Hilton in downtown Nassau but my client was closer to the Melia. Although the hotel was overall fine, this hotel is more... Read more destined for the leisure traveler. That in itself is not an issue, but my review if based on business travel perspective. The overall hotel is somewhat outdated and in need of some TLC, but work is ongoing so that may change. The rooms were fine and clean. For iPad/tablet users, an important note. There is no WiFi in the rooms ; only a "hard wired" connection. So if you don't travel with a laptop, your internet access will have to be in the reception area or some other public areas of the hotel. The WiFi in public areas and room hard wired connections are free which is great. I did not have any speed issues. I was on a low floor ; view was not great, so if you can get a high floor i'd recommend that. If you like to have having a fridge in your room, be aware that there are none, but that you can get one for 10$/day. A bit steep but can be useful for some people. I cant comment on the beach or the overall facilities since I did not use them at all. As many have mentioned, there is a 40$/day resort fee. Complete waste for me. That being said, I guess you just have to factor in the 40$ fee into the overall room cost when comparing with other properties. For me, I did not see any advantages of the resort fee since I was only there to sleep. So my overall conclusion on the Melia is that its fine, but business travelers should shop around and stay here when the price is right. Read less
We are just home from our week vacation at Meila Nassau. Resort under construction & only 1 restaurant open, it did get a little old after the week. Saying that the Italian restaurant had great... Read more service & pretty good food which we ate 6 out of 7 nights. Lunch was another story, we called it the "Fly" buffet, it was an outside buffet /restaurant near the pool, the food was cooked in a tent near by & I have never in my life seen so many flies on food & flying around. It was disgusting, I am not sure how it was allowed, maybe no health board to monitor ? We resorted to grilled cheese sandwiches delivered to us on the beach. Most days they held private luncheons in the only restaurant. I am sure when the renovations are done this situation will be corrected, but not sure when that will be, completion date looks to be in the distant future. The resort is old & worn, they are busy updating it, but lots of work still to be done. Our room was an oceanview that had been updated, view was nice, bed was comfortable & room cleaning was prompt & efficient.(furniture was showing wear). No refrigerator in room! The beach is very nice,( we have been to many) & really liked the clear water & loved the long daily walks. Lots of new beach chairs arrived & that was great as it was never a problem getting a chair. Only 1 pool was open & some of our group tried it but felt is was dirty. Only had entertainment 1 out of 7 nights, a talented gentleman who played a keyboard & sang. Casino almost a ghost town & we found the machines to be extremely tight. Our biggest beef during our stay was having to sign a bill for every drink we drank & for all food eaten, we even had to sign a bill for 2 half pickles they forgot to put on our bill! We had an all inclusive package, read it carefully, as several things are not in the "plan".The food & drink is expensive at this resort so I would recommend only going all inclusive. A suggestion for the resort, move your outside beach shower out of the sand & onto the cement patio so that we can wash the sand off & it will stay off,( that had to be the dumbest thing I have seen). Would we go back, not sure! Read less
My husband and I and two other couples stayed at the Melia for 7 nights All Inclusive. We had a fabulous time. Check in and check out was easy no extra charges in the end. Yes, the property is... Read more under construction but was a minimal bother. All though limited because of reservations, food was great. Probably one of the best for food that we have been to. Bartenders Patrick, Robert, "Disasta" (GINO), Philip, Frederick kept us entertained and were a huge part of the great experience. Beach was very nice. A little sea weed here and there. Saw Sting Rays one afternoon swimming on the beach. New chairs arrived while we were there. That was a big plus as the old chairs were falling apart. Plenty of chairs and Palapas at the beach. Hotel staff was very friendly as were the guests that stayed that week. No problem with towels. My biggest con was the lack of night time entertainment. Out of the 7 nights we only saw a little band set up where Starbucks was once. Other than that, that was it. I would like to go back when all of the reservations are finished to see the changes.

We recently conducted a week of seminars at The Melia Nassau Beach Resort. The hotel staff, particularly Inez Munnings, was very accommodating and pleasant. They made the experience a great one. Inez... Read more stood out among her peers, however, with her warm smile and humble demeanor. She should be commended for her efforts. Read less
