Shout out to Tamika Smith!!!!! She was absolutely wonderful. She brightened our mornings while my mother, aunt, and I were there celebrating my aunt’s birthday. We enjoyed how she made us and others around us feel like royalty!!!! Can’t wait to visit Meliá and have her as our hostess again!!!!!

MAIN POOL/BAR UNDER CONSTRUCTION UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE NO ONE WILL TELL YOU, DURING BOOKING, ON THEIR SITE OR AT CHECK IN 15+ years experienced all-inclusive travelers We were handed our check-in info with a letter saying there was pool construction on 8/26/19. We read this out loud and say "Well its been almost 3 weeks so we are good to go." Check-in agent SAID NOTHING ABOUT THE POOL STILL BEING CLOSED THAT DAY We then go to the pool bar and find that the bar up top is functioning, but there is a big green tarp wall around the pool bar/adult area. There was one bartender for about 15 people. The second bartender had to be summoned from sitting down about 50 feet away. We had two drinks. Made another loop because MAYBE there was something we missed or areas of the other pools that weren't filled with kids. No. Made out way back to the same bar. Middle of the third drink, workers came back to work and JACK-HAMMERING THE POOL. There was no way we were going to sit at bar, with less than attentive staff and jack hammers. We can do that for free at home. So we began to look for another all-inclusive. Paid for it (now we have paid for two all inclusive vacations). Went to the front desk and say we are leaving and want our money back. They refused to give us any money back, saying the trip was pre-paid for. ALL VACATIONS ARE PRE-PAID FOR. Asked to talk to a manager---of course one was not there. Packed up, checked out and cabbed it to the Riu. We were in the Melia maybe 2 hours. Read less

Where do I even start smh. Let's start with the $200 deposit per room that we knew nothing about prior to checking in. My friends and I take an annual trip together and book through a travel agent and had never had to make a deposit upon arrival. We get to our room and it looks like a page out a magazine from 1961.

Where do I even start smh. Let's start with the $200 deposit per room that we knew nothing about prior to checking in. My friends and I take an annual trip together and book through a travel agent and had never had to make a deposit upon arrival. We get to our room and it looks like a page out a magazine from 1961. Nothing is updated but the TV that stays staticey and fuzzy. The rooms are very outdated, small, no mini bar just water, nasty carpet, worn out carpets, dusty, stain toilets and worn out mattresses. The front desk did move the both of the rooms reserved to a pool view room instead of seeing muddy dirt and construction machines. The food was mediocre at all the restaurants. The adult pool was closed so had to get in pool with disrespectful kids driving in without any regard to other guest. Not to mention this is not an all-inclusive resort. Certain items on the menu's you have to pay for not to mention room service requires a $10 delivery fee. And, when you try to order via phone no one answers along with the front desk not answering. With any number you dial all the phone does is beep. After 45 minutes I was able to get a bellhop on the phone to order room service. The shuttle that was provided gave a time of 2:50 being the last pickup time from a local bar/club. Myself and friends waited at the pickup location from 1:50-3:20 and no one showed after numerous calls with reports of the driver being 15 minutes away then 5 minutes away an as of 3:25 a shuttle never showed. We took a taxi for a minute and a half drive and had to pay $15. The agent at the front desk said she didn't know anything about the shuttle since it didn't technically work for the hotel and that we would have to take it up with them, when we specifically asked the driver what time the shuttle stopped running. I've been to many all-inclusive resorts and this was by far the worst. While sitting at the bar enjoying a drink, my friends and I noticed roaches crawling on the bar countertop and floor. We brought this to the attention of the bar tender numerous times and he ignored us and then made a joke about them being out early. He never tried to access the problem but just let them crawl over the counter and "clean" cups that he was pouring drinks into. Front desk staff was very rude when asking for simple assistance such as is there a way we can warm up our food. There are very small refrigerators in the room without a microwave. The balconies aren't even big enough for two people to sit out and enjoy the weather. Hardly any entertainment. We enjoyed karaoke and the DJ on Sunday night but that was it. My friends and I are sooooooo disappointed that we wasted our money on this so-called all-inclusive resort/hotel. Motel 6 is better than this place. Please take your business elsewhere and you will thank me. I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked to use being off the property as much as possible and only coming to sleep. Please don't waste your money and research other options that will be worth your hard earned money and contribute to a great fun-filled vacation. Read less

This was mine and my husbands second trip to the Melia. We decided to bring our two adult kids and their significant others with us to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We knew that September was going to be a tough time to go due to hurricane season and off peak season. We had a few rain showers but it did not damper our trip. There was some construction going on but did not bother us because we understand things have to be kept up and updated. We had a wonderful time! The staff was all so very nice to us! I want to give a special shout out to Dicienzo, Leon, Philip, Kent and Alvin for making our trip sooooo much fun and drinks were plentiful! Ya'll have become family to us! Thanks to all the staff in The Market, the buffet was our favorite lunch spot. The staff of the Tapas lounge were also very good people! Housekeeping did a wonderful job keeping us stocked with plenty of water, towels and clean sheets! Thank you Melia for a very memorable family trip, we can not wait to come back and see ya'll.
