The property is beautiful but the customer service was the worse. The staff was rude and even though we paid for services like room service in our package, the staff was rude and tried to not provide.

The beach and pool here are truly as beautiful as they look in pictures, but once you start getting further into the resort, that fades away a bit. The resort grounds and flora are stunning, but the rooms are dated, dirty and in need of maintenance. I would expect a resort that claims to be 5 stars to have: beach...

Back for our 5th time and loved it again. Alex Rijo is the best butler and Santo Perez is the best guy in the beach. We have never been let down by Melia Caribe Tropical. Thank you for another great vacation!

My husband and I spent a week at this resort from February 2-11, 2017. We are Club Melia members and the trip to this resort was a "perk" for adding to our membership when we were in Puerto Vallarta last year. Our check in was great, but again, we are members so were checked in at the members desk. I...

He was so helpful and helped me locate another room and was always there to help us whenever we needed assistance. T Restaurants were great and we loved our waiters, Joe Joe and Enrique...

Stayed at Melia for a week with two other families and kids. Service was very good overall. Food was good at the main buffet, didn't like the one at the beach much (it was a hit or miss). Al a carte restaurants didn't require reservations; we enjoyed the American Grill, Dominican and French restaurants. One family in our group did...

First let me start off by saying that if you cant enjoy yourself in a beautiful location then it is your own fault. We went to the DR for a wedding and overall our stay was wondering. The best part of the resort is the pool and beach. Now for the bad things. My least favorite part about my trip...

This was our first time here for my wife and myself and looking forward to our next time. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The grounds were gorgeous and well maintained. I unfortunately had the misfortune to stay overnight in the hospital. The manager Dilson Almonte and his partner Coral Jimenez noticed us in the hospital as there were...
