A great place to relax
This was our second trip to Melia. We were looking for a relaxing week on the beach and we weren’t disappointed! This time we stayed in a Garden View room, which was simple, but nice. Most importantly, it was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The resort itself isn’t huge, but it is well-maintained. Everyone is always fixing or cleaning something. The staff are extremely friendly. Though we didn’t meet the cleaning staff, our room was very well taken care of. And the servers were great, especially Alberto who was always friendly and on it with anything we could want. The a la carte dining was quite good, especially the Mexican restaurant and Cafe Paraiso. The snack bar served up good wings and the crudités really hit the spot on hot days. The buffets could be hit or miss outside of breakfast (love that omelet grill, French toast and fresh fruit). The grill options at the buffet were good, some of the rest wasn’t our favorite, but we didn’t go hungry. Mexican night with those tacos al pastor were a definite hit! I enjoyed many a mojito. Love the swim up bar! Last time we came there was a ton of seaweed and the water was brackish. This time was a massive improvement! Very little seaweed and the water was clear almost the whole trip. We also saw iguanas for the first time this trip and enjoyed looking for them on our walks. It’s fun to see them and I’m glad they have a home here. The only minor issues we had was that WiFi was very unreliable in our room, it probably only worked a third of the time. We also heard a lot of noise from the neighboring room, but that’s not the resort’s fault. Overall, I’d recommend the Melia for anyone looking for a relaxing beach vacation.
The Melia far exceeded our hopes and expectations in every aspect! It was relaxing, enjoyable and the service was fantastic! The staff were very friendly. We loved the adult experience! We'll be back!!!!
Some Good/some not-so-good.
We stayed from May 13th-23, 2019. The lobby area is very pretty with a lot of marble. The entire place is clean and staff works hard to keep it up. We originally had a reserved a Garden view room, but decided to upgrade to an ocean-front walk-out. Ultimately, we were glad because I have walking problems and room 121 was a good choice. The proximity to the beach/water is great. It's beautifully lined with palm trees and plenty chairs. One thing we did NOT like was that there are no dressers in the room and it's a little too dark. (We even had one burned out/not working light bulb) In all fairness, we never got around to ask it to be replaced. We had a major sink leak one day flooding the bathroom and hallway. We couldn't use the sink until it was repaired. However, they repaired it in a fair amount of time, The rooms are not elaborate, but are comfortable and clean, The king sized bed WAS very comfortable. Plan on bringing your own toiletries. The ones they provide are very basic, nothing great. Outside our rooms, there are nice hammocks, some full sun and some shaded. They were very nice and we enjoyed them.The beach is pretty white sand, and in the water, there are a few rocky/coral areas. We used water shoes and that made it perfect. The water is mostly clear and lot too wavy, mostly calm. It IS beautiful and kept very clean. The employees were all very nice and hard working people who deserve to be tipped for each service. You don't have to tip a lot, but please show your appreciation and remember that their wages are very low. As for the food, (we've eaten at many places around the world and not really hard to please). I personally prefer to have more variety than this resort offers. There is the main buffet restaurant, an outside grill, (has good shrimp tacos and ceviche!!) an Italian area within the main buffet area and an ala carte that has very few options. The fresh fruits and vegetables are good, (always were very fresh), there were juice/drink choices and meats. I really didn't care for any of the meats, as I found them to be a little tough. We personally didn't like the deserts or breads. Let's just say that I suppose some people like the food ok, I really didn't. If you're expecting some nice tropical cocktails/drinks.....expect them to be made of the overly sweet fake syrup stuff. The only one I did enjoy was the mint mohito. Really good and refreshing. I liked the champagne and didn't care for the wine. It seemed that they had activities that people would enjoy, but we had rented a car, so drove around doing different things. So, basically, for what you pay, it's a pretty good, small resort. Friendly, clean, beautiful view, affordable and just okay food. Would we go again? Yes.
2 night visit at the Melia Cozumel
We needed a room for a couple days in Cozumel, as our flight got canceled and we had to push out a couple days. We wanted to stay at our favorite hotel, the Fiesta Americana, but those two days there would cost us more than double staying at the Melia, so here we are. We had intended to visit this resort this trip, perhaps buying a day pass. I have stayed at a Melia before and like the resort just fine (Punta Cana). We arrived at a little after 1, and check in is 3 PM. So we walk the property, get some lunch, and just get the lay of the land a bit. First thing I notice is all the marble everywhere, large sheets of marble in the lobby, marble flooring in the room, the bathrooms have marble walls as well, this is a nice resort, so far as materials used in construction finishes. Second thing we notice is that the staff is not quite as friendly as at the FA. I know I’m a homer for the FA, so I’ll try to be very fair, but the FA gives a comparison point. And to be fair, they had a line of people checking in and were likely trying to get ‘er done. There is a delay in getting our room, and I see them change the key cards in our room envelope and a different number is put on our envelope. We go to the room an ocean view, first floor suite. Two bathrooms, a kitchenette, full sized apartment sized stainless steel fridge, all the dishes and silverware, living room and a giant master bedroom with a large closet. People could seriously live here! We were to learn later that we had booked a garden view room, but these were all booked up, so they upgraded us. They did ask if we were willing to pay $20.00 per day for a water view upgrade, which we declined. We got one anyways. We prefer not to be first floor, as our deck is not as secure for clothes drying as any other floor. But we are happy here. The room here really is nice. The AC chills us and we have to turn it back. Water pressure is great. Bathrobes (terry cloth) are provided. There are plenty of towels; water, soda and beer in the fridge. I love the doors throughout, fifteen raised panels in each. The resort as a whole is well kept, cleaned and maintained. They have a staff busy about everything here. Wifi is free in the lobbies, but it is $10.00 a day for in room. They give you an access code that is good for 24 hours. You can buy as many as you want at a time. Melia, being a Spanish resort, caters to Spanish speaking folks, as well as English speaking folks. It also means more smokers than I am used to. Smoking is allowed about anywhere outside, with plenty of ash trays and sand trays for butts. Vaping is apparently acceptable in some of the eating areas, at least. The beach seems to go on and on, they have a large section of beach, but the water is murky and rough due to the winds today, from the north. This is a nice beach resort, if beach is what you want. Snorkeling is not so good here. Sandy beach and wave action doesn’t make for good snorkeling. (Obviously, snorkeling is important for us). They use a towel card for towels here, with a $25.00 charge for a lost card or towel. We notice that the crowd has a large contingent of Spanish speaking folks and English speaking. Not that they don’t have other folks, just an observation. We also notice a goodly number of toddlers and babies and the cry of a baby is seldom far away. The front desk mentions that they have one section for couples, a bit quieter, and a section for families, which I think is considerate. We have no noise issues in our room, except that our room is across from the mechanical room for the elevator, and they have an opaque window in the bathroom on that side that allows noise into the unit. Simple fix is to close the bathroom door. More on the grounds, they are nice, simply put. There is grass everywhere and palm trees, with a good contingent of Iguanas, which just make our day. These are 3 footers, and have been here a while. They are fairly tame and you can get some good pictures. At dinner, we saw some raccoons come on out searching for food as well. Now for my impressions on the food. The food is good. Not real good, and certainly not great, but it is good. Shooting from my memory, which can be suspect at times, I’d put it close to the Iberostar, just a touch less. We’ve tried out the buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and found plenty we liked. They have the grill station, various juices, and a salad bar with a half dozen dressing options. Bread and cold cuts are available, as well as various hot prepared items. Hot is variable term here, some of the buffet items are somewhat less than hot, down right room temperature. We tried the snack bar out. Decent service, tasty fries, and the chicken wings were good. The burger is a meatloaf burger. I prefer 100% beef, no bread added. Otherwise it comes well decked out, fills a large bun, slice of lettuce, tomato and onion. We tried out the International restaurant tonight. We only can manage one reservation at the three A La Carte places, strictly due to time. I’m guessing there are no limits on how many times you can reserve a place, but you have to do so before 3PM in the buffet. The menu has about 4 items for each course (only 2 soups). I get the grilled octopus and it is well cooked, not rubbery and has a nice grilled flavor. The soup was tasty enough. The main course was well seasoned and just slightly overcooked, very tasty. We got crepes for dessert and none of that was left on the plate. Earlier in the day, I had opportunity to watch the head chef instructing a new grill cook on the fine points of cooking. They were speaking Spanish, but I kinda got the gist of what was being said. He indicated that it was very important that each piece received a liberal dose of this … I’m going to say it was oil with seasoning on it. That flavored up the chicken real nice. It seems that their intention is that it is not enough to simply cook the food, but to also assure it is well flavored. I appreciated that. The food here is fairly well flavored, in what few samplings I have received. Overall, this is a nice beach resort with good food and very good rooms. Family section and couples sections make for some nice segregation. It lacks good snorkeling, however, which is important to us.
Much Fun at Melia
My sister and I took our 20-year old kids for a mini vacation at this resort and had a great time! We especially appreciated the activity staff (Sheila, Mary and Noe) . . . they made our trip extra fun with their activities, energy and enthusiasm! We also appreciated the wait staff, front desk and cleaning staffs. . . all worked hard to make our trip enjoyable. As others have noted, it was a little disappointing that golf is not included in this "All Inclusive Golf Resort," but that wasn't the main reason for our trip. Also some reviewers have indicated displeasure with the food. While we may not have liked everything that was available, we didn't have any problem finding something we liked at every meal time as there are lots of options. The main thing I would recommend is cranking up the air conditioning a little more in the lobby area. If that's the only place where you offer free Wifi, it needs to be comfortable and it was NOT during our stay. It was extremely hot. One more thing for prospective guests, if you're looking for luxury, this may not be the place for you as it's somewhat dated . . . older furniture in rooms, tiny TV's, etc. With that said, it offers everything you need and is clean, so if you don't mind a place that's a little older, I highly recommend it. And, be sure to take advantage of all the activities!
