The food was average and we waited almost an hour at check in. Other then that the people and staff were great and there is plenty to do while you are here! The resort is huge and requires quite a hut of walking or waiting on shuttle transportation. Was a beautiful get away!

Massive resort with beautiful grounds. Several trains and golf carts that provide rides between the lobby, restaurants, pool, and beach. Many times we walked to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and work off the great food and drinks.The two large buffets one by the beach and the other by the lobby were good. Just remember to pace your selections during your...

We stayed February 28-March 5, 2017. The resort is super close to Punta Cana airport (25 minutes and only 1 other stop before ours) which was great because we were travelling with a 23 month old. The check in process was easy and they gave us a free upgrade to a Family Suite literally a minute from our rooms to...

We visited Melia Caribe Tropical during my son's March break. Myself, my husband, and our two sons - ages five and eight months - spent a week at the resort. I read several TripAdvisor reviews before we left and some of the more negative reviews had me concerned about the food quality, level of service, speed of check-in, and size...

I went over for a friend's wedding and the rooms were very clean along with the facilities and washrooms around the resort. The only thing I have to say is the resort itself was too big for my liking and every time I wanted to go and eat, go on the beach or even head over to the lobby I...

My family and I have traveled to a few all inclusive resorts, thus I think I have a good frame of reference. I admit, I hardly ever write reviews but always rely on them. I'm still very confused on how this place is ranked so high by other travelers. Thus, this is mainly to depict true experience from last week...
