Melia Tropical is a high end resort well suited to families, with a fantastic kids club and Flintstones Land. The resort fairly large, making it suitable for those who like walking and adventuring around the beaches. With a variety of food options and their attentive and personable customer service, the Melia Caribe Tropical is a great resort option in Punta Cana.
I went with some girlfriends for a whole week in early January. We had taken someone's timeshare so we did not stay in the Level Suites but were able to visit all Level restaurants and pool, etc... Our room was total crap. It was right near the beach (plus) but the room itself was old and dated. Our air conditioner broke twice, spilling water all over the floor. Thank goodness nothing of value was underneath. The weather was very windy with rain almost every day, but during times of sun the experience was amazing. We spent most of our time at the pool. Gabi pool is perfect on cooler days as it's far from the beach and wind, but the Level pool was great for meeting people and drinking pina coladas. The Level pool bar staff EDUARDO and RAMON were top notch servers. They deserve a raise! So many restaurants on site and they were all delicious, although I would have to say the parmesan cheese wheel at the Italian restaurant was the best. With all the drinking and eating I must have gained at least 5-7 pounds, especially from the coco locos that taste like coquoito as I drank several of those every day. If I went again I would definitely get a Level Suite because I hear those rooms are much, much better. I would take my running shoes in an attempt to exercise and would stay away from the casino because losing money sucks.
I recently returned from a beautiful and relaxing seven night vacation at the Melia. It was my first time at this all-inclusive resort, staying on the family side close to the beach. I enjoyed delicious food, a great beach and excellent service. The resident birdlife was a beautiful attraction that added to the inviting atmosphere. Traveling with 7 relatives, my stay was stress-free thanks to the dedication and hardwork of our Melia Apple vacation concierge, Indiana. She went above and beyond, making sure my family had a great time and was smiling everyday! I will definitely be visiting this resort again.
Second time back and have nothing but good things to say. Yan Luis, Roycer, and Cappuccino did an excellent job in making sure there was always something going on and made sure to get the guests involved. As it seems like a tiring job, the staff made always sure to do it with a warm and friendly approach.
Resort is amazing. The staff is wonderful. Everything is kept very clean. The entertainers are very exciting. Yeimison, Yan Luis and Roycer are great. The shows every night are awesome for families. The games on the beach and the pool are great and amazing for keeping the entire family entertained throughout your stay.
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!
