Our Opinion

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 spectacular Melia Caribe Tropical offers spacious, classy and beautifully decorated rooms in a lush garden setting. Pamper yourself in one of the complete European spas and enjoy gourmet cuisine, spectacular beaches and a wide array of outdoor activities. Kids can enjoy the Flintstones theme activities nearby while parents relax in peace and tranquility. Guest accommodations now include the Royal Service Suites, offering luxury service with a personalized touch. So whether you go golfing, honeymooning or vacationing with the family, allow the Melia's trusted name to spoil you with excellent services and facilities that will make you never want to leave!

Location: On Bavaro Beach, 25 min from the Punta Cana airport, 90 min from La Romana airport.

Amazing Visit!

The resort is really big! Our room was near the beach which is farthest from the lobby and restaurants, however the walk was easy and gave us a chance to get rid of some of the calories from all of the delicious food we ate. There are also trains and golf carts that you can use if you don't want to or can't walk. The beaches are gorgeous, however it was extremely windy while we were there so it limited the time at the beach. However there are several pools at the resort as well and lots of people used them. There are plenty of beach chairs so you don't have to stake them out early.Our room was a standard room but was really nice. Lots of marble and glass. The bed was comfortable and it had a sitting area as well. TV is mostly in spanish but had some english channels as well. The balcony is furnished with a small table and 2 plastic chairs.The food is wonderful. We had dinner at the Dominican restaurant our first night. Gene, our Circle concierge, made sure that they knew it was my husband's birthday trip so they came over with a birthday cake and everyone sang and played the drums. It was so unexpected and fun. The food, especially the soup, was fantastic. We ate at a few of the other restaurants - they have at least 6 a la cartel - they were good as well. The Marketplace is the main buffet restaurant and they always had a wide variety of foods including vegetarian and gluten free options. I recommend at least trying the dominican food, although they have pizza and pasta for the less adventurous eaters.The people are super nice and will go out of their way to try to help you and make sure you have good service.I would recommend it to everyone and can't wait to go back with my family!

Came back this year, STILL AMAZING!

This time our room was in a different building, it was a nice room but it wasn't as "new" as the one we got the last time but it was still pretty nice. Everything was clean which is great cause me and my toddler have dust allergies. Food was AMAZING! They dont serve the "cheap" stuff in their buffet, they actually serve pretty good quality food and lots and lots of seafood. Staff was pretty friendly (most of them). Will definitely keep recommending this place. Please put a microwave in the rooms or at least in each building. It was hard to warm up my sons milk.

Family Holiday vacation

Book at The Level or you will be disappointed. We spent two nights on the regular side of the hotel--the rooms were old and need updating. We upgraded to The Level and it was a world of difference. The hotel staff at the regular hotel were unhelpful and slow, at The Level it was very different.

Wyjątkowe wakacje
