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.

  • Large selection of a la carte restaurants

Honeymooners vacation

Great time on our honeymoon, loved the hotel and excursions. On our first day we went horse back riding and to the blue hole lagoon and the second excursion we swam with sting rays and sharks. The resort was. Dry cleaned and we recieved great service. The beach area was clean and the water was clear and beautiful.

Do not waste your money

Stayed hear for one night after staying at the Hard Rock for 3 nights. You definitely can see the difference in the attention to detail, the overall lack of care and friendliness by all of the staff, quality of food as well as size of rooms and decor were piss poor in comparison. Will definitely not stay here again.

August Getaway

This was a very nice resort. The staff was friendly, attentive, and never hesitated to assist us. We did two excursions while we were there which proved to be a lot of fun. Make sure you take in some of the sites. Now for some of things we disliked. We had reserved a 1 bedroom suite and ended up in a studio because someone had reserved a whole area of the resort. I would have rathered had the 1 one bedroom, however, because of the problem, we had a large discount in our all-inclusive fee. Secondly, bring Imodium. This resort had a few outside buffets which we frequented for breakfast and lunch. Flies and birds everywhere, hence, we were both very uncomfortable the last 2 days of our stay. Use the buffet inside the main building. And thirdly, don't drink the water. We even used bottled water to brush our teeth which is provided in every room along with beer, soda, & snacks. Other then the outside buffets, which wouldn't have been bad if they were screened in, it was Beautiful.

Worst All-Inclusive Vacation

Stayed at Melia Caribe Tropical for a wedding and had one of the worst all-inclusive experiences. The hotel grounds is way too big and the golf carts, diesel train that is used to transport the guest is not only of environmental concern but inefficient. Even when you call for a shuttle ride, which never came, literally had to run and stop the cars to get a ride. Imagine walking in heals to a wedding and the driver still didn't stop. Additionally, Staff was never eager to help and customer service was sub-par. We called reception several times and was always given to run-around. In terms of food, you are served the same things everyday and they keep the heat lamps way too hot so food is left try and pretty much taste like gas station/convenience food options. I would suggest only going to the prepare for you stations such as burgers/omelettes and even in those situations, staff was not very friendly or helpful.
