This was our second visit to the Melia resort in Punta Cana, and if this is even possible it exceeded our first visit last year! For starters, the staff remembered us and greeted warmly. Our attending concierge Humberto was so attentive, welcoming and professional that we felt like we were visiting a family member rather than a large resort. I visited several times the Riviera Restaurant, especially after we met Francisco Diaz (the King of the Riviera Restaurant). He is an outstanding person and the best waiter. He made special my wedding anniversary!! Thanks Francisco! My family and I were very impressed with attention even to move from one place to another with in the resort was easy specially after we met Luis. He treaded us like a VIP. Transportation was excellent. Our Ning by were also special! We were every night at the main lobby for the shows and party. We met Maria, a sweet person; she always was pending that we did not runout of stings 🍻🥂 Another heartwarming gesture was the chocolate strawberries, the champagne, and the run. We will be back! Thank you, The Level!!!

The shaker bar was some of the best drinks at the resort. Wonderful friendly service and the drinks are amazing. I tested the bartender to make me some of my favorite drinks and he made them to perfection. The drink in the picture was a funky one but my night cap for the day! 5 out 5 for sure!

This is my fourth time here and I can confidently say that I will NEVER return to this place. The service has gotten HORRIBLE and I refuse to blame the pandemic. First they gave me and my boyfriend a room with two beds… when I called for a different room they stated that they didn’t have any rooms available with one bed. They literally instructed us to push the two beds together and make it work. About 20 minutes after we checked in we hear a loud thud… one of the beds was literally broken. We called the front and miraculously a room two doors down was open and had a king size bed for us. The food has gotten lackluster and no matter how much we tip we can’t get proper customer service. This morning we woke up and decided to upgrade to the adults only section. The checkout process was a nightmare. First they tried to get me to sign a paper stating that i was checking out, they weren’t at fault for anything and that we weren’t going to be refunded our money. I told him that we weren’t checking out, we were upgrading to the adults only section. He seemed confused and then went in the back, when he returned he quoted me one price over the phone and when we went to the lobby to pay the gentleman at the front quoted us a drastically different price and said that the staff we spoke to earlier wasn’t authorized to quote us a price. When I asked for a manager he was miraculously able to match the price that I was told earlier. Now we have made it over to the adults only side and they have no knowledge of us upgrading. Thanks Meliá. After 8 years of me staying here as well as referring people here this is it for me. You won’t get my business ever again.
