Don't Believe The Negative Reviews
We returned yesterday from Melia Nassau Beach. We stayed from June 15-19, 2019. - Firstly, the beach is clean, well-kept and there are lots of beach chairs. Same for the pools. Get the beach view rooms; well worth it. - We tried most of the restaurants, and the food was excellent in each one. Download the app to reserve your dinner for that day, or just go to the reservations desk in the morning. - Service was friendly and efficient. After reading some reviews about people acting kind of unfriendly, I was relieved to find out that these sour reviews were wrong. The waiters and waitresses all spoke politely, dressed classy and were willing to answer the same questions from us that they probably endure every day. - The fridge in the room was always stocked. - Late in the evening (on 2 occasions) I called Housekeeping to bring more water to our room and they were prompt. - Bartenders, inside and outside, were all friendly and in an amazing mood every day. From the snooty attitudes we witnessed of some of the vacationers, I really don't know how the staff keep smiling for these entitled babies. The service industry is not an easy one. - Concierge was most pleasant and really wanted to know how we felt we were treated and if things could be better. Then, our boarding passes home were printed out for us. - We also received excellent advice as to the best way to navigate into town and where to go. I suggest taking the free, on-going shuttle next door to the fantastic Baha-Mar Casino and Resort. They've got a gorgeous casino and some cool nightclubs. Our All-Inclusive wristbands do not get recognized there, so expect to shell out a premium dollar for drinks. Close to $20/drink adds up fast, lol. Can't imagine what the room rates are like. Great to visit, however.... I'd put the dollar-for-dollar value of the Melia Nassau Beach up against any of the all-inclusive resorts in Nassau, for the important things that matter in a vacation. - Between the two of us we have 6 kids. We agreed that we'd love to come back and bring them with us, this time. This resort is perfect for young kids, teenagers or just adults.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL
We travel to a lot of places and this by far was the worst resort we have ever stayed in. The people running this resort are incredibly rude...as well as majority of the people in the Bahamas are rude! We wont be returning to this country! They had roaches crawling around in 2 of the restaurants we ate in, cats in the buffet eating area, and the food is not good at all! If you don't make reservations at 8 am you are stuck eating the buffet! They never replaced towels in our room and when calling for them, took hours to get. The place is dingy and dirty! Id def advise anyone to pay a little extra to stay at the Baha-Mar, or better yet, go to a different country where they appreciate tourist!
International Beach Therapy...Relax & Enjoy!
My husband and I stayed at the Melia Nassau Beach Resort June 10-15, 2019. We were celebrating our 3 year wedding anniversary. The entry to the resort is beautiful. However every resort we’ve been to in the Caribbean has an open concept for the lobby area. We were shocked that it had an actual hotel lobby. After doing some research, I read that it used to be a Sheraton hotel before renovation. We were greeted promptly at the front desk. They gave us wrist bands that looked like it took $0.50 USD to make. We were told by the front desk if we were to lose our wrist bands, it’ll cost $200 USD each to replace them. I chuckled because I have stayed at a Melia resort before in the Dominican Republic and the wrist bands at that one were not so cheap looking and definitely not worth $200 USD to replace. Our room was on the 5th floor in the west wing , room 587. The hallways are long and weird. Our room had an obstructed ocean view and a very small balcony. The king sized bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was a nice size. However, when we showered, the shower head would make a whistling noise no matter the water temperature. The closet to hang clothes in is very small and it comes with a college dorm sized mini ironing board. 😆 We suggest bringing your own towels because Tuesday-Thursday of our stay, housekeeping was extra stingy with the towels. We went from having 2 body towels, 2 hand towels, 2 wash cloths on Monday to 2 body towels, 2 hand towels, 1 wash cloth, and no wash cloths or hand towels the rest of the week. When my husband asked the housekeeper for towels she acted like she was the towel police. One day I had to ask the housekeeper for towels and she stated she forgot them. Just sad! The property is beautiful and the restaurants each have their own unique ambience. You can dine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the buffet known as the Market Place. You have the option to sit inside or outside. Lunch is offered at The O’Grille which is a beach side restaurant. The food was delicious here. The only thing I didn’t like was the pigeons landing on tables and eating off the plates that were waiting to be bussed. That was just unsanitary to me and I prayed that the cutlery and plates were washed in scalding hot water, and thoroughly sanitized before reusing. In the lobby area there was Estavida Tapas lounge. We didn’t not eat there so, no comment. The 3 restaurants mentioned above do not require reservations. There are 4 restaurants that require reservations, of the 4 only 1 is not included in the all inclusive deal. FYI if you use the Melia app to make dinner reservations, forget about it, the app will either lose your reservation or say there are no vacancies. It’s best to go to the lobby to the reservation desk at 8am when they open to book your reservation for that evening. The choices are Aqua, Cilantro (Mexican), Nikkei, and Black Angus. We did eat at Aqua (Italian), Black Angus (the Steakhouse which costs extra to dine), and Nikkei (Asian Fusion). All of these speciality restaurants had delicious food. My husband and I are both in agreement that Black Angus (the Steakhouse) was the best. The waitstaff was very prompt and very attending to guests. Lamont and his crew were awesome. I had for an appetizer the creamy conch chowder, and my main course was the grilled Tuna steak paired with thyme and lemon sauce, and a side of lobster macaroni and cheese. My husband had a steak paired with a truffle butter sauce, and side of lobster macaroni and cheese. We skipped dessert because we were truly full. For the two of us to dine it was only $135.00 USD for the both of us. The beach at the resort is nice, but the beach chairs are not neatly arranged like they are on the resorts website. It’s more of a disarray of chairs. The umbrellas and huts are limited so get there early to claim an umbrella or hut to stay shaded out of the hot sun. The water is clear, inviting, and refreshing. There are free non motorized activities on the beach. The motorized activities do cost extra. There are even people walking up and down the beach selling cigars, coconut drinks, caricature drawings, scarfs, sarongs, conch shells, and beach bags. There is one adult only pool with a swim up bar, 2 hot tubs, and a family/kid pool. The entertainment at the resort was okay. We attended the family jeopardy game which was fun. The ideal couple game was cancelled because the men wanted to watch the NBA finals game between the Raptors and Golden State Warriors. On Friday night, the theme was Bahamian night and they had a Junkanoo party in the lobby which was fun. Other than that, it was a snooze fest. If you are looking to book an excursion, make sure you book with Majestic Tours. They took great care of us. We booked our roundtrip airport transport, our City and Country Tour, and our Seahorse Sunset Catamaran Dinner Cruise through them. We are very happy we did. Lastly on Saturday, June 15, 2019 while we were waiting for our ride to the airport with our luggage I spotted on the floor what looked like a roach scurrying on the lobby floor. I made sure to move our luggage so it wouldn’t hitch a ride back to our home.
Recommend this hotel for Management responsiveness
After a shaky start to our vacation we are pleased to share that our vacation ended very very well! A special shout out to activities lead Kristy who took the time to ask guests at the pool how their time was and based on my feedback arranged our restaurant reservations. She also passed our concerns to Director of Guest Services, Melvern, who very graciously heard our feedback and did everything she could to make the remainder of our stay very pleasant indeed. We had a wonderful last few days, staff were attentive to our needs and helped greatly with my food allergies, even somehow finding me gluten-free bread. The pool area which merges onto the beach is beautiful and super convenient and there’s lots of loungers. The meals we had in Aqua (Italian) and Nikkei (Japanese) were really good. I recommend this hotel as the management want to hear feedback and want their guests to have a good time. Also I trust that they will take our specific feedback and make improvements for all other guests! Thanks to Melvern Williamson and Chevaz Chambers for genuinely caring and ensuring that we had a great time
Completely enjoyed a long overdue vacation!
From the time we arrived to this resort, it was fantastic! The staff was very friendly, the entire resort was clean (very important to me), the food was wonderful, the drinks were great! We've already decided we will be going back and after telling friends and family about this place, others are planning to visit as well. When you look at the pictures online and "hope" the beach is really going to be that great and get there and IT IS - that's amazing! The water was so clear, you could stand and see your feet from waist deep. We opted for the Level at Melia and thoroughly enjoyed it! The rooms were clean, with plenty enough space and we even had a roll away for our son. The food was delicious! We loved being able to sit out by the beach, order food, drinks and the staff would bring it to us. We never felt like we were bothering anyone, the friendliness of the staff was great! Our time at the beach was enjoyable, we even took advantage of the free sunscreen available at the Level hut LOL. If you try the Asian restaurant, I highly recommend the Beef Short Rib - so good! The grilled shrimp on the outdoor menu for the beach area was absolutely delicious - we literally ate it everyday, along with the ceviche, the chicken wrap, great burgers, gyro, etc... I was probably a little surprised that for an all inclusive resort there was 1 restaurant not included, but a -15% discount was offered (the steakhouse) and that the menus for the other sit down restaurants had some exclusions, unless you wanted to pay extra. Other-than-that, we thoroughly enjoyed it.
