Amy G,

I suggest that you look at the hotel's reviews on TA's reviews section.

Per my post on your other thread:

It's a nice resort, yes. However, the beach is not swimmable. It's very rocky. If you want a swimmable beach, Melia is not the resort for you.

This resort is also not located in San Juan. You will need a rental car to get there, or make transportation arrangements.

May I ask what are your concerns?

In my experience, the Gran Melia prices are competitive with other PR resorts, though I would not recommend the "Red Level" upgrade. It is worth shopping for deals because there are almost always some promotions.

The sandy area which surrounds the bungalows is not a swimming beach, but there is a reasonably good beach, which many people miss, on the west side of the Hotel just past the large pool (which is the biggest on the island).

The resort was designed with a Tahitian architecture. The rooms are spread out across a large area in 20 or so bungalows with about 6 rooms each. The central pavilion has restaurants, bars, a number of lounge areas with Bali beds, and comfortable seating to hang out. The best golf course on the island is also attached.
