One of the best family hotels in Punta Cana. Melia Caribe is a large resort, with a beautiful beach. The resort has very attentive and personable staff that will cater to your needs. They are also notable for their kids club. Those who are impartial to walking would enjoy staying in this resort, as its relatively large size also means distances between one area of the hotel to the other.
The resort is very nice. Be sure to bring lots of one dollar bills for tips. Although this is an all inclusive resort, most employees are quick to grab your luggage, provide very personalized service at dinner, etc. until they receive a tip. I would recommend staying at the resort. We booked a dune buggy excursion that turned out to be a little annoying. We were told the excursion was four hours. The first hour was spent being driven around in a big truck with bench seats to collect other tourists from the surrounding resorts. We were driven about 35 km away and were directed to our tour guide. He did a roll call and said we would be given a private tour. Turns out our private tour was driving in a dune buggy convoy down dusty trails to a beach, coffee/cigar shop, and a spring. We were set upon by locals at every location who demanded money for various things. For example, a very pushy local at the beach approached my wife with a parakeet. He put the parakeet on her head and encouraged me to take a picture. He then demanded ten dollars. That sort of thing got old. I wish people would just ask instead of everything being a shakedown.
The best part of the hotel, by far is the entertainment. Everything else, not very good at all. Rooms are fine- bathrooms are old. Not much variety in food, stick to pasta. The place is so big that you need to take a little train to places. They said yrain comes every 15 min- not true. It cones every 45min or so. Not good for families traveling with kids. Water sports are included...they are never available! They have 3 kayaks for about 3000 guests!
We enjoyed our trip immensely and had no complaints.Attended a beautiful wedding and had an excellent week.We will definitely be returning here in the future.Staff was amazingly friendly and helpful.Whole resort was immaculate,clean and beautiful!!!
Looking forward to an amazing experience!!!Hey Everyone,We have have decided to take a chance and give the Melia family a chance. We are going on our honeymoon arriving May 28th, so its an extremely important trip for us. Although we will be on vaca my fiance is a popular you tube blogger who will be blogging on arrival. So far we have emailed Melia and explained the importance of our trip and the response was quick. Although somewhat paranoid because the email stated that a single bed would be upon availability!!!! What!!! Honeymoon and double beds dont make sense. Melia if you have visibility please ensure our honeymoon is amazing. We'll keep everyone posted.
Melia Caribe Tropical in Punta Cana. Fantastic vacation. We upscaled and stayed at "The Level", a nicer location with respect to all the restaurants and night life and just a golf cart ride to the beach. Everything was just perfect. Our room overlooked the nature side rather than the beach, which we loved. You can go to the beach in the day time so the night was beautiful with our view. The staff was the best! Absolutely. I would revisit for sure. This is a beautiful place where you have the choice of calm or if you prefer, lot's of fun and activities. A+ in my book.
