Family Reunion and Vacation

I will list the pros and cons of this resort honestly. First a big thank you to Coral Jimenez who turned our vacation into something I forgettable! Pros: Rooms are big and beds are super comfortable Large bath towels and beach towels Always find a lounger at the beach and pool areas Food is excellent in the a la cart restaurants Service is always with a smile Nightly entertainment is great Hotel lobby gift store has great prices compared to sellers on the beach. Cons: Do not stay in room 0605 - door is off the hinges and you have to slam it to close it by the time they offered to switch our room we were leaving the next day.... Hotel states they have 13 restaurants - 2 are paid restaurants not included in the all inclusive- other restaurants are located in the Level area which is an upgraded area. There are only 3 a la carts open per night and it's first come first served no reservations and your entire party has to be there to be seated. They try to sell you an upgraded bottle of wine everynight. Hotel doesn't actual have 9 pools it's one big pool and each section is considered a pool. Resort is huge - if your room is closer to the pool or beach area you have to take a train to get to the main lobby and restaurants. No waiters by pool or beach area you have to go to the bar yourself to get a drink. This one really bothered me - absolutely no beach bar or beach restaurant - the only thing that is close and you have to wear a coverup is the pool/beach area buffet which is quite a walk from the loungers. This resort is one of the last resorts on the Bavaro Beach strip because it's on the tale end there is a lot of seaweed on shore and in the water. Can't say anything about the Kids Zone never had to use it - kids were having fun at the pool and beach. It's a more quite resort which is great for kids and families - no loud noise or commotion - no one comes around asking you to do activities. Your pretty much left alone to enjoy your vacation - they have activities posted on a board but who checks that. If your traveling with Air Transat be prepared to not see or hear from your rep your whole stay. Also Air Transat offers certain things included and the hotel has no idea about these inclusions- so be prepared for that. Bring small dollar bills as it's very hard to get change for tips We had a few issues and thanks to Coral Jimenez she tried her best to make things right for us, because of the great service she gave our group of 20 I would be willing to go back and give the Melia Caribe Tropical a second chance. Thanks for a great family vacation Melia Caribe Tropical and Coral Jimenez.

It rained continuously for 4 days last week during our trip but our children had the best time. The staff went above and beyond to make sure everyone was entertained. Roycer was the best. He spent hours each day playing sports in the pool with the kids, creating games around pool deck. I don't know how we would have survived our rainy week without Roycer's help. He's a jewel. This has been our 9th stay at Melia and we continue to go back because of the amazing staff. Some my children have known since they were babies and they are now 7&9. Hats off to Eddy Samba, Evelyn Cuentas, Dulce, Jerkin, Ramone, Augustine, Hector, Wander, Roosevelt we love you all and thank you for taking such great care of us every time we come.

A hotel that makes us “Keep coming back “

This is our 5th time coming to the Melia Caribe tropical Punta Cana, and we have always had a great experience with this hotel chain (especially Punta Cana). The staff and team are pleasant to work with and serve with high professionalism. We enjoyed the many restaurants on the hotel ground, enjoying different dining experience, Italian,French, international to of course the Dominican. We had an opportunity to also experience the higher level Restaurant “GABI”. Food was great, from appetizer’s, to the lobster dinner all the way to the desert. The beach is never crowded, it has a large pool, and the activities are always engaging. We brought additional family members with us, and we can wait to come back to this hotel in the future.

Best Vacay Ever!
