Very good service and friendly / helpful staff. Clean and comfortable room. Very close to the airport and ~30 minutes drive from main attractions in and near downtown. Limited options for vegan / vegetarian food Recommend for families. Walk up beach is relatively small but it wasnt crowded.

This is the 8th time we have stayed here, and we have met others who have been coming here for over 20 years. We love the location and the staff. Honestly we don't even know what the rating is because we know this is where we want to stay. The staff is exceptional!

Great Family Vacation
Mar 16 2016
The hotel and staff were wonderful, the grounds were kept very nice everything was very clean. Only problem with the room was a/c did not work well at all but we managed. Also the hamburgers at snack bar were not good at all. Luis and Leonardo were great servers in restaurants and serving drinks by the pool, Alejandro was the best swim up bartender, super nice and made fantastic drinks. Our kids, ages 10, 12 and 14 never got bored. The pool, beach, volleyball and basketball court kept them happy all day long. The location was perfect, close to airport and boardwalk/downtown shopping. Our Apple Rep Eduardo was especially wonderful helping us plan our day excursion.

Overall staff attentiveness was fair with the exception of the waiters around the pool. They were very on top of things and very friendly. Rooms were much older than what they appeared in the hotel website but they were clean. Grounds were nice and pool was large. Food was good but lacked many options. Wish they had more bar options. The pool bar was the only thing open during the day and Lobby bar open at night. Not much for evening outdoor seating. But again all were nice. Would have like more options all times of the day. All together it was still a nice vacation. You can't beat Puerto Vallarta in the winter.

I highly recommend this resort to anyone who's looking for some relaxation. Their service is exceptional! Food was pretty good, no complaints. It would be better if they weren't serving the same thing every day, fish was excellent. If you're looking for a little nightlife you'll need to go out into the city. Overall it was just what I was looking for, a few day getaway of relaxation. Very family oriented resort.

The room was musty and we found a dead cockroach in the closet. You were not always able to make reservations unless you made them the night before. The food was mediocre at best. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We did not receive the "deluxe ocean view" room that we paid for, we had to go back to the lobby and request a different room. Our room reeked like mold. There was one small buffet for dinner that featured the same exact food every night. The same with breakfast. No variety at all. Our return shuttle to the airport never showed up. We had to pay for a cab with a promise of being reimbursed. After finally finding the Apple representative we were told to look for, who was NOT named Antonio, my husband was Handed 50 pesos and told he did not have US currency, and refused to pay the $6 we were forced today the cab driver. We were never offered our coupons that were mentioned on the printout I handed to the person checking us in. The service in the pool area STUNK, you received maybe 50% of the drinks ordered. The women working the morning buffet were crabby...unless you were a Spanish speaking person that is, then they were smiling and friendly. I would be mbarrassed to recommend this resort to anyone. The photos n their website must be a decade old, they are not representative of what the place is really like.

Weather was perfect, Food was excellent, Service all the way around was the best. The only thing the hotel needs to work on is the front desk staff seemed a bit arrogant but not enough to raise a complaint over. A perfect trip. Also Apple was very efficient in every way, friendly and comforting.

Melia resort thumbs up!

From check-in to check-out, the resort staff was friendly, helpful, and courteous. It was easy to exchange currency at the resort and the gift shop there. They were also not stingy with bottled water. The Marina District was safe to walk around, and even safe to walk to church in the nearby residential area.

All inclusive that still feels like Mexico
CateAngharad, Edmonton, Canada

This is not a sparkly, sleek or chic resort - do not come here and then complain that it’s “run down” because it doesn’t measure up to expectations set by visits to Now Amber or Secrets, etc. It is by no means run down, though it is, as some say, “showing a bit of age”. This is a family resort and many Mexican families enjoy staying here as well. Do not come here and complain that there are “too many Mexicans”. This is THEIR country and YOU are their guest. We found them to be generally friendlier and more approachable than the American My friends and I all loved this place. Our every request was answered promptly, and followed up by a call from the front desk to make sure we were happy each time. Waiters who smiled genuinely and remembered your favourite drink before you even had a chance to order. This is a stunningly lush, beautifully landscaped small resort with old-world terracotta pathways, Spanish music at the enormous pool, an upper and lower beach, great ocean and city and mountain views. The food was actually very good - all three of us with very different tastes all agreed that the buffets and a la cartes exceeded our moderate expectations. $130 pesos gets you a cab to the Malecón. There is virtually no towel game here and even around noon you can almost always find some pool or beach chairs. A much more relaxed morning routine than every other resort we’ve been to where you need to set your alarm early just to claim a chair. Rooms and resort were very clean. Good cappuccino at the buffet. We made special requests for our room fridge which were accommodated each day. Remember to tip generously. Drawbacks to be aware of: the resort is small and lively (but not wild and not a ‘party place’). You will hear music from the 9:30pm show and then the lobby bar music until midnight. We were pooped each night so this didn’t bother us and we had no trouble sleeping; beds are a bit hard so if it bothers you ask housekeeping to pad it with some extra blankets; wifi was awful - spotty at best. If you can get an affordable data plan, do so. This would actually be my biggest suggestion to the resort in terms of upgrading- they need better wifi. We really enjoyed our time at Melia and would definitely stay again. This was a girls’ trip but we all agreed we would feel confident bringing our kids in the future.

Fun but not wild

We knew the hotel was older and a little out of town, but the price was right and the reviews okay so we tried it, and we were so glad we did. The room was plain but clean and marble and well kept by friendly staff. Restaurants were few, but overall the food was good and the Italian restaurant was excellent. The Grill and Mexican restaurants were also satisfying. We got excellent service everywhere: Alberto at the Front Desk, Miguel and Margot at the Italian restaurant; Gabriel at the grill, all the fine people who brought my juice and coffee without asking at the breakfast buffet, the energetic crew that kept my margarita glass full by the pool, and the great ladies at the concierge desk who patiently helped us regularly. It's a family place, with people escaping the cold of Calgary or the smog of Mexico City--a great mix of people, including lots of fun-loving Mexican families with their beautiful children. The mood was relaxed and friendly all around and dancing until midnight, but then a quiet night and a slow start in the morning with breakfast at 9 beating the rush. A short taxi or bus ride from town or a short walk to the Marina shops. But mostly we just hung out by the vast , warm pool enjoying the sun and the people. We had a great time that far exceeded our expectations.

Okay stay at the Melia

The Melia is a small clean resort.. The rooms were good. There were clean and beds were very comfortable.. Very quiet at night! The first restort I stayed at that I didn't get woke up by other guests in the middle of the night or first thing in the morning.. The food was okay, Not great the buffet is very very small at this resort and not much to choose threw, but the food did have good taste. If you enjoy buffets or a food lover this is something to consider.. I have travelled to lots of resorts and this is the smallest buffet I have ever seen.. More of a cafeteria style buffet.. The drinks were good.. Only one bar open during the day and it's by the pool. The lobby bar opens at 5 pm.. This is one thing I didn't like at this resort.. You couldn't sit in the lobby during the day and have drink... The pool area was nice lots of chairs to be found and one thing I really liked they didn't play music so loud you couldn't talk.. The staff was very friendly and it was all men..

Very CORRUPT and run down

I went to The Melia on my birthday (April 13th 2018) with my mom (55) my son (4) and my friend (28) and the experience was corrupt and horrible to say the very least. From the beginning when we checked in and were shown where our room was, the one elevator was all torn up with wires exposed to the public, and the only other working elevator had no safety on it when it closed. When my mom got out of the elevator with our baggage, the elevator shut on her and continued to shut, crushing her and actually hurting her physically very badly. We complained to the front desk and the woman did not believe me until I actually walked her down to the unsafe elevator and showed her myself, expressing my concern if that was a child’s fingers, how they would have been dismembered by the unsafe elevator they had operating in their establishment. Once I showed the female manager the problem was in fact true, they apologized and sent us a fruit platter. The next night we noticed a leak coming from the ceiling fan into our bathroom, it was brown water leaking onto you every time you used the toilet. We informed the staff of the leak, and when they opened up the electrical panel to shut off electricity to the room to fix the leak, the electrical panel was full of black mold. We changed rooms and tried to make the best of our holiday. The third day was alright, we had a nice breakfast at the buffet, although some of the food was cold. The fourth day was a disaster to put it nicely. Our group had met some other Canadians in the pool at the swim up bar and were having some drinks a few feet from the bar socializing. We heard a whistle and looked up to what wasn’t a life guard, because there isn’t one on duty, but a security guard telling us we could not have our drinks we got from the swim up bar in the pool. By this point my mother, friend, myself and the group of Canadians we made friends with were confused and questioned why we could not have our drinks in the pool. The guard did not speak much English, so we continued to ask him why drinks from the swim up bar, 3 feet away, were prohibited. The guard, at this point, got frustrated and walked away. We watched him go down to the beach and we were quite relieved we had no one nagging at us on our holiday. A few minutes later, the guard returned and held up a rolled marijuana cigarette and insinuated in broken English he was going to plant it on us and call the “policia”. We went to the front desk and reported the problem, which management told us they could call us a cab and we could leave. There were two paid days left on our vacation. Needless to say we packed up, called air transat, changed our flight, and checked out two days early. I have stayed all over Mexico, at dreams in Cancun, at the Azul Fives, in Playa Del Carmen, and have even done a cruise around all of Mexico and Catalina Islands. Never in my life have I experienced such a horrible vacation as I have since we stepped foot into the Melia - Puerto Vallarta. Save your money, as this place is beyond corrupt. From one experienced traveller to the other, its not worth the Mexican jail time you will receive by booking your vacation at The Melia. Also, room service is an extra charge. This place is not only run down, but very corrupt. The only good part about this resort was the bartender Alejandro, he was friendly dispite all of the other problems this hotel has.
