I went there with my boyfriend for a week and after a lot of reading I didnt really know what to expect, well... it was great! Its a huge hotel kind of far from the city - which is great if you want a secluded time at the beach with your bf or gf. The place is beautiful, the architecture...

Rooms need updated. Dim lighting, bathtub was cracked and chipped. Very minimal food options and almost none for kids. Meals were overpriced. Hotel does not allow coolers and only offers a refrigerator that is about 4 inches deep. Holds nothing and is not stocked as a mini bar either

The Gran Melia wasn't our first choice for a vacation (we were booked on a cruise out of San Juan that was cancelled by the cruise line 16 days before sailing) but it ended up being a good backup plan. If I could, I'd really like to give it a rating of 3.5 - it was nicer than just average,...

For the expense I expected service and rooms to be exceptional. Our original room the sofa was filthy. I had to complain for 3 days about my air conditioner not functioning properly before they finally moved us rooms. I told the front desk manager that although it didn't effect me, that the sofa in the original room was disgusting her...

We were giving Melia a second chance after a bad experience in Nassau and we probable won't go back. The staff is warm and friendly, food was great but the rooms were once again in need of repair and renovation.

beautiful property, poor management with unfriendly staff. Very costly to taxi off the property. Very expensive market on premises but to taxi off to go to store it will cost you $30.00 each way. The property has a wonderful layout with beautiful landscaping. Must love lizards they are all around the pool and also like to join in on swims....

Where to start? Well, this resort will be OK if you have very low expectations. Good luck getting anything from staff or front desk. I had booked a room with 2 beds and was given a room with one bed and a sleeper sofa upon check in. I thought "well, we'll just make the best of it". After a long...

I really wanted to like this place and am saddened that it did not meet my expectations. The hotel grounds are stunning yet the pool area is in disrepair. Pool needs to be repainted/glazed; there are sections around the fountains and other decorative feautures that are crumbling. There is a hot tub area in the center of the pool that...

We just returned from a stay at the Gran Melia Golf Resort from April 19-23rd. Let me begin with saying that we were with a large group (over 500 people) as an incentive trip.

PLEASE HELP LOTS OF QUESTIONS!!!!!

I was able to purchase this hotel as a Groupon deal for my best friend's 40th birthday. We aren't traveling until June 18th and this will be both of our first times in PR. The photos took my breath away and the cost was reasonable enough for me to surprise her with the gift after having some pretty rough times lately. I am really hoping this much needed getaway gives us a chance to escape the blues.

I know about the deposit per night, but usually deposits are returned unless you use them. However it seems like people are stating that they are getting charged for ludicrous items. (Towels cost what?) Or complaining about the treatment and true condition of the property. Then some are saying its a dream come true.

We don't expect million dollar service, just a good, peaceful beautiful time. Without me feeling the need to hide a credit card statement from my husband. We are extremely excited to be taking a trip together (having our own families and work makes that hard). Some person even said they were charged an upgrade fee of $3k?!! That is what scared me enough for someone who has been here to hopefully set my mind at ease.

What is included in Red Level? Is it a better option than paying a la carte? We are blessed to have breakfast included in the Groupon (thanks!) but it seems the Red Level doesn't do much more than that?

We've been hoping to come to Puerto Rico for years. Any advice would be truly appreciated. This place is very very pretty. I truly hope its the paradise it appears to be in the photos! The pool alone is amazing!!

Also more about the beach? Do swim shoes help with the rocks or don't bother. How about excursions (budget friendly).

Thanks to everyone who replies in advance. I will be responding after our return.

Happy Travels!
