I go to Vallarta several times per year and hadn't stayed at the Melia in over 20 years. I usually stay in Nuevo Vallarta and from now on, I'm sticking to that area. Sorry to say that the Melia is just not worth the money compared to the Nuevo Vallarta hotels (excluding the gawd awful Marival). Let's begin. My first visit to this hotel was way back in the day when it was new, called the Royal Maeva.and then changed to the Melia. It was better then in just about everything. What I still like is the staff and the cleanliness. This time around, the food was just OK but they need more specialty restaurants and waiting in line to sign up early in the morning has to go. Yes, the food is edible, but it's not gourmet and it's just edible with nothing outstanding, sometimes it becomes scarce until it's restocked which may take some time especially at breakfast, . Even the specialty restaurant was just OK with nothing outstanding. Our room was clean but needed a refresh. It was hotter than holy hell while there and the air conditioning did not keep up but they did provide a fan. Still, not adequate for comfort. The pool was clean, it's huge, but it was crowded and kids everywhere. That did not make for much relaxation. As with most hotels on the hotel strip, the beaches are small and different hotels attempt to block off their properties (against Mexican law) with rocks so you can't walk that far. I did mention that there were a lot of kids there, right? It didn't make any difference that they do have a kids club, they're everywhere in the main pool and swim-up bar. I'm not referring to teens, I'm talking everything from kids in strollers, tots, and pre-teens. They only have one bar open at a time, or it overlaps with the other for one hour. The lobby bar isn't large enough nor staffed with enough bartenders to keep you from waiting for a substantial time. However, the bartenders were great and very accommodating. Evening entertainment isn't much. Need to take the elevator? Might as well not unless you like to wait and then ride on a rickety hazard. Check-in and check-out was hassle free. All in all, the Melia is a three star resort. Pay a few more bucks more (if any) and stay in Nuevo Vallarta where the hotels are newer and the beaches better. I've personally found the food and drinks to be much better in that area (with the exclusion of the dreadful Marival). The Hard Rock, the Riu Palace, the Occidental, and quite a few others are so much nicer for the money and amenities plus you won't be surrounded by unruly kids. Sure, you're about 20 minutes from downtown Vallarta but it's worth it. We still had a good time and no major complaints excluding the massive amount of kids, If you've never been to an all-inclusive or Puerto Vallarta, you'll most likely enjoy your stay. Should you have stayed at a newer and or deluxe all-inclusive, that may not be the case.

HORRIFIC Customer Service

I paid good money for a vacation at this resort via a private school auction in the US. The only stipulations on the certificate I purchased was that it can't be used during holidays or on specific blackout dates that were outlined. The hotel has denied every single date I have given them for when we can take vacation. First they made excuses that someone had bought out the entire hotel and there were no rooms on the dates I selected. Then it changed to there are no rooms available until after April 1 (my certificate expires Feb 15). I have been contacting the hotel for almost a year to get this worked out and it still isn't. Huge waste of time and a lot of frustration. I wish I could get my money back but can't because it was a donation to the school and we can not get the vacation we were promised because of the awful staff and customer service at Melia. Corporate has not even responded to my emails. Most of the time when I call I just get hung up on when I start speaking English. I guess most of the staff doesn't know English so they just hang up on you. Nice. I'm going to write to the Consumer Affairs about this shady establishment.

Amazing view, sunsets and nightly shows
Tanya_Bad, Fremont, California

Good things: 1. the sunsets are absolutely breathtaking, and the ocean view is amazing. Make sure to get the ocean view room and enjoy the sound of morning waves and the lights of PV downtown at night that are visible from the balcony. 2. The property is green, lush and tropical, with iguanas, turtles and Hawaiian-looking plants. 3. The nightly shows are fantastic. Some are seriously awesome. The dance team are incredible talented and equally good at latin, tap dancing, acrobatics, break dance, and modern dance. Their shows are very versatile and include all of the above plus some acting and good humor. They keep your attention and are better than any other hotel shows I have seen. I also met them in person, and they are amazingly sweet, friendly and humble. They were for sure the highlight of my time there and I hope the hotel administration appreciates their hard work! During the day, they also participate in kids activities, and my 5-y o daughter loved them. The bad: 1. Maybe it was the season (September, when US kids go back to school), but most of the visitors were local, and the staff held most of the activities in Spanish. They did repeat the key points in English, but the commenting and cheering on during the games - all that was in Spanish. I had no idea what was going on most of the time. Another example: my daughter loved participating in kids mini discos, but the games were 95% in Spanish except for when the host was talking to her directly. It's just not fun when you cannot understand what the others are saying/doing and why is everyone laughing. This was the case for most of the day, for all activities. We felt like outsiders the entire stay. I guess this hotel is more locals oriented because I don't remember it being the case in other hotels in Mexico. 2. The hotel is indeed outdated but not terribly so. It's just this feeling that you are not in a shiny spotless accommodation but see some stains on the ceiling, it smells musty, conditioner blowing too hard in some rooms, etc. Not a deal breaker because the price reflects that, but it can be important to some people .

Great View - Decent Food - Tons of Kids

We traveled to the resort the week of September 16th and found the hotel in immaculate condition. The grounds were clean and the rooms were in solid condition. We had to request a fan to be brought into our room because the air conditioner couldn't keep up. The food was decent. Didn't like the fact we had to wait in line at 10am every morning to eat at the a la carte restaurants, which means if you do an excursion, you are guaranteed to eat the buffet. There was a good amount of the resort closed probably due to it being down season. Only 2 bars!! Pool bar opened at 11am!! So, no drinks until 11am, unless you request a mimosa at the buffet for breakfast. Pool bar closes at 6pm. Lobby bar opens at 5pm. The lobby bar is great, but since it is outdoors it was hot and really humid. There was literally no where to go and have a cold beverage in air conditioning. Kids - It was the middle of September and I guarantee you the kids outnumbered adults 3 to 1. There is one big pool with the pool bar and there is a kiddie pool that sits closer to the beach. My wife and I found ourselves more in the kiddie pool because there were no kids in it!! Completely no control of kids in the "adult" pool. Kids splashing and slashing water right into people's drinks at the pool bar. Multiple kids sitting on the bar stools ordering drinks and splashing each other.... And no one ever said anything. I enjoyed the view, the food was ok, but won't be back due to how the kids over-run the resort.
