Spring break 2017 with three families children ranging from 10-3. The hotel is nice and the beach is spectacular but the rooms really need some TLC and the customer service is nonexistent. Our room was always clean but the sliding door lock was broken, TV reception was poor, the chair in the room was falling apart, mold in the shower...

The thing that disappointed us the most was the service and the food. Both were awful! The beef was always under cooked and the made to order omlette's were still raw in the middle every morning we ordered them. The cheeses and lunch meets were never cold down in the restaurant by the beach. There were several occasions when we...

First off, the check-in was our first sign of trouble. We waited about 30 minutes with only one couple ahead of us at the counter. Even they were annoyed at how long the check-in process was taking. Once it was finally our turn, they told us the room we had was not ready and asked if we would take a...

The main reason we keep coming back to this part of the Caribbean is the people. Everyone is so friendly and service oriented. Food has always been good, but is better prepared this visit.

We have been at the Melia Tropical many years in a row and the reason we keep going back is because we feel at home, but in Paradise.

Bad service, they do nothing extra for special occasions such as honey moon, food was ok at some places and other places was just awful, if you did not tip from poor service they will treat you bad there.
