First time in Mexico and looking for a place to rest your head
Lets start by saying that this is the first time we have been to Mexico, normally we travel to Jamaica but this was a last minute trip for just my husband and I. We were a bit skeptical with the previous reviews but thought we may as well try. I chose this hotel because of the location. It was close to the marina, not too close to downtown so less hustle, but a short cab ride away. The food: I am a goody person, we like to cook a lot. The food was absolutely terrible here. Breakfast I drank the green juice as it seemed the safest thing to have. All the food items were cold, the bacon as hidden with the omelette lady. It wasn't kept warm so it was too hard and cold. The fresh fruit was good, but people were touching it with their hands, it really grossed me out. Lunch: There was the lunch buffet, and the snack shack. The lunch buffet had some hamburgers, tacos, salad, and normally a fish or chicken dish. Again it was cold. We waiting for a fresh burger since it would be hot. The snack shack had popcorn, fresh cold potato chips, and chicken wings. It was okay but I didn't care for it. Dinner: We did not eat at the A-la-carte, we tried to the buffet which there is 2 of them. Again food cold, tasteless. Only good item was they're pork chops. They were delicious. The deserts were also very good. After the first night we decided that we would walk across to the Marina and eat over there. Thankfully there was a couple of good restaurants. We ate at the pancake and waffle, the Brazilian, sticky fingers and a few others. The rooms were big, dated, not too clean. They defiantly need to upgrade the rooms, just the basic finishings would really make the stay more bearable. The AC didn't work well and always had the smell of cigarette smoke coming through. We went to the Walmart and purchased a fan as we couldn't stand the stagnant air in the room. the fridge was restocked daily with beers ands of drinks. The bartender in lobby bar not sure of his name, but he always remembered our drink order, welcomed us with peanuts everyday. Thank you. The pool waiter was terrible he forgot my drink every time I was down there, not a big deal but he tend to cater to the other Mexican first before even acknowledging me and others. I was tipping well too, but just got up and got my own drinks. the staff were always friendly, smiling, and that made this hotel stay pleasant. It is true;y too bad they didn't fix the food issue, because this hotel could definitely be a wonderful place. The beach is clean, nice sand , not rocky, rough water and there is a sea urchin warning. So we didn't do the beach too much. The hot water went out in the hotel, for approx 4 hours, but did get fixed. The fire alarm went off at 1am because of people smoking in the rooms, they addressed the issue quickly. There was a awful smell in the rooms and elevator, it wasn't consistent but would recommend getting some air freshener. We used uberX which was cheaper and easier than the taxi. save approx 35 peso each time. Not much but considering we were always leaving to go eat at other places it made it a bit easier. This is definitely geared to the Mexicans, and families. Which is fine, but they tend to give the attention more to them . Checkin was easy, checkout was a nightmare. Checkout a bit earlier to avoid waiting for over an hour. Would I return again? NO Would I recommend ? Depends on to who
Great service, friendly staff, decent food
We had a great stay because the staff were really friendly and had quite funny. Gemma, one of the hostess, was really sweet and just a great person to talk too. The nightly entertainment performers (Mariano, Alberto, Louise Miguel, Francia, Alison and Beatrice) are all incredibly talented and performed with a lot of love. The hotel however can use some help when it comes to the food since it is quite repetitive. It tastes good but after a week of the seeing the same thing it just gets boring. The drinks too are only decent. The room we stayed in had no major issues so our experience was very nice. The bathroom was very beautiful and I loved the amount of space there was. The bathtub was also very nice. Air conditioning was no problem for us so we were happy. Over all the hotel has a beautiful landscape and design plan and makes you feel as though you are transported into a peaceful rainforest. If food can be improved I would definitely go back however it was lacking in that regard.
Melia is the best
They're very friendly and has excellent services, the guy in the front door I think his name is miegal or so is very nice, we treated as royals and all services was excellent especially the show every night
Food 4 out of 10 stars. Other than the specialty resturaunt the food was cold with the same selections daily. The $ 400 credits are useless. The Melia Rewards program gave me $ o credit for our 7 night stay. Pretty site with nice beach and pool. Close to downtown. I do NOT recommend. Spend your extra time to research the area resorts.
Sad and Tired
Melia Puerto Vallarta feels like it used to be nice and maybe one of their premier properties. However, in it's current state, it was sad and tired. Many areas are in disrepair and felt ignored by maintenance. Our room was very, very average and, like others mentioned, the bathroom had mold. The view from the room was wonderful, though there were many old cigarette butts left on the balcony. I would say the main problem, which would mask all of the other aesthetic issues with the hotel, is the food. It's awful. We knew after the first evening and then the first breakfast that we would be dining out. The breakfast is ok. Just ok. We enjoyed the fresh quesadillas with whatever filling they had cooking in the ceramic pots on the griddle. The coffee stinks. A huge problem is with the times that the restaurants operate. Breakfast is served at a normal time (7am, I think.). Since we came in from the East Coast of the US, we woke up super early for the two full days we were there and were ready for breakfast around 7:30am. The problem is that they don't start serving lunch until 1pm! I think that the P.V. day gets started a bit later because of the sun having to clear the mountains, so I think that a lot of people maybe eat later? All I know is that the only option in between breakfast and 1pm is a snack bar by the pool. I found the food to be awful. I had a hot dog one day and just made sure that I got one that had just been taken out of the oven. Other than that, nope. There were kids coughing all over the food, people dropping the serving tongs and putting them back, etc. The location is fantastic for being able to walk to great little shops and dining options at the marina. We loved La Terraza Di Roma and the Coffee Cup (get the fresh banana bread.) Don't try to buy an excursion from anyone other than the main companies (Vallarta Adventures, namely) because they are ALL trying to sell you condos! It was insane. We would think we were getting a good price and then they would say we could only have that price if we did a condo/timeshare presentation. It was bizarre. Back to the hotel, I agree with another reviewer that there are lots of kids. I thought they would be in school but??? I usually don't have a problem with this, because most of the places we have stayed as a couple have an adult pool or a "quieter" option. There is only one pool and it is wall to wall kids. We also witnessed a mother holding a naked baby in the pool. I recently had surgery and was cleared to swim with my stiches, but I was grossed out by the thought of a baby having a poop explosion in the pool near me. We told a waiter (after the bartender seemingly ignored the situation) and he said he would tell someone to address the situation. We just ended up getting out of the pool. Again, I have two kids, love kids, etc. I just want another option when I am traveling without my kids=) The bottom line is that the hotel is in a fantastic location, the beach is quiet, and it looks like it used to be nice. We left being disappointed that we paid for "all-inclusive" and really only used it for coffee and a quesadilla in the morning and drinks at the beach and the pool. Other than that, we spent money outside of the resort, which is not our intention when staying at an all inclusive.
