I went the first week of February and the weather was always around 28c. Only one night with rain. The hotel is nicely constructed in a Spanish style with lots of areas to hang around in case of rain. We stayed at room 4511 which was located in a very quiet area not very far from the restaurant area. A...

This was our second time staying at the Melia Caribe in Punta Cana. This vacation consisted of three families and we all stayed in the same building near the pool. The location was convenient, especially if you have kids. Checking in is always timely, as they make sure you are informed about their services and what you will be receiving...

This was our first trip to the Dominican Republic and certainly won't be the last. This was also our first trip together without the kids. Upon arrival at Melia Caribe Tropical we experienced some rain and trouble at check in. This put a damper on our first impression. However the next day was a complete turnaround! The entire MELIA staff...

This review is based off of a current 5-star hotel employee and I am Dominican as well. We were there for a family members wedding, it started with us trying to check in. We were in the front of the line and had to wait 30 minutes to check-in (fine I'm lenient) after I got up to the counter at...

So, upon check-in, I was a bit concerned. Check in time took way too long and the desk staff were not very quick in their movements. After finally checking in, we were starving, so we went to the Angora restaurant, near the beach for a late lunch. (4:00) All that was available was burnt hamburgers, hotdogs, fries and chicken fingers....

Fantastic time. My husband and two kids age 13 and 9 arrived on the 19th to rain and a 2 hour check in. I was very nervous that this expensive vacation was off to a bad start. However, we had 4 days of excellent weather. I rented a kayak 3 out of the 4 days with never a wait for...

Excellent time. Folks at customer service very friendly and helpful. Will definitely consider returning. Did the snorkeling excursion and kids loved it. Food was great and plentiful. Mexican restaurant was especially good. Beaches were clean as was the pool. Swim up bar was a plus.

The Melia Caribe Tropical was an absolutely gorgeous all inclusive! We stayed in The Level part of the resort and the service was top notched. Our original room had a leaking ceiling and the VIP staff immediately upgraded us to a beautiful family suite. Juan was very attentive to our needs and was a pleasure to work with. The grounds...

My boyfriend and I and my parents travelled from Regina Saskatchewan Canada and arrived at the Melia expecting a 5 star experience. First off check in was a night mare.
