Evenings come alive with an adults only night club and nightly entertainment. Ensuring fun for all ages, the Melia Braco Village offers couples and families an unforgettable vacation in the heart of the Caribbean.
We had a great time at the resort. The food was good, the rooms have modern decor and facilities. We however were disappointed that pre-arrival requests were not honored which ruined part of our stay. They definitely need some system to manage requests and have them fulfilled regardless of whether the same staff members are on-site. Also, service declined and improved based on who was on duty; there is need to have the same service standard maintained throughout!Also, we arrived when it was raining and got wet because the entrance to the lobby is uncovered..bring your umbrella!
Staying at Melia feels like going home I have stayed there five times in less than a year which speaks to comfort and the homily feeling you receive. The staff are respectful and thoughtful. Good food. Good service
Another fantastic visit to my favourite property. The service was great as always.They took care of all my needs from start to finish. Beautiful village that makes you forget that you are away from home.
What can I say except that Melia Braco Village (MBV) is one of the best resorts we have ever stayed at. It is the people that make up the Family at MBV that make all the difference !!Let’s start with Simon. Simon was our Concierge, and was a pleasure to have met. We had some really good early marning conversations over our one week stay. Simon was polite, kind, and respectful to my Wife and I. Every day I asked Simon to say – it is not going to rain … only once did Simon say it was not to rain and low and behold he was on target !! Simon ... You are an asset to MBV and You are truly a “gentle man”. THANKS !!!Javian aka Jav aka Mickel was our most favourite bartender at the Level Swim up pool bar. Javian is a great drink mixologist, and not once did our drinks go empty. Not to mention, Javion, had a great sense of humour, and always got the party started with the few that were at the pool. A big shout out to Roxroy – a smile that can light up a room, Kevoy, Mark, Onar, Garnet, and Akeem – all great bartenders.Every marning, we had breakfast at the Level – Golden Sands - outdoor terrace. We ordered off the menu - all traditional Jamaican dishes - Ackee & Salt fish or Escovitch with bammy & grilled plantain - absolutely incredible food. Tafari was our favourite chef for our marning breakfasts – overlooking the beach and the most beautiful almond tree we have ever seen !! A special thanks to Caron aka Dave aka the Riddle King for entertaining my nephew and our Family with riddles every marning to get the mind working.Our favourite girl’s at MBV Level was Dana, LaToya, and Seanna. Dana was very polite and sweet. LaToya was my niece’s favourite, and really made a connection with her. Seanna was always smiling, and attentive. Not to mention Nerene who was very quick witted, and great at making sure everyone was happy. We ate at Rasta Pasta for 2 of our dinners. Don’t listen to the previous bad reviews on TripAdvisor !! Rasta Pasta is an excellent Italian Restaurant. My wife is Italian, and if anybody knows about fresh pasta – it is my boss !! The Seafood lasagna is off the shelf, and the Seafood Linguine was equally incredible. Also, the Mac & Cheese – only found on the kid’s menu – is the best we have ever had. Christine looked after us, and really made us feel at home !!We ate at 876 Prime for 3 of our dinners. Judah was our server for 2 of the 3 meals. Judah was very polite, and attentive. The Filet Mignon (Tenderloin) was cooked to perfection all 3 times, and the steak tar tar was the best I have ever had !! The lobster bisque was outstanding as was the Pumpkin soup. 876 Prime is by far one of the best high-class restaurants we have ever been to – the food taste, quality, and presentation were awesome, and the service was impeccable !!Nikkei, the Teppanyaki restaurant, was also really good. Sheldon looked after our table, and he was awesome!! Shelden made us laugh and sing the whole time. In fact, I think Sheldon should be a singer instead of a chef !! … Oh Jesus !! … Sheldon – I can’t thank you enough for making a connection with my 11-year-old nephew. My Mama and my Sister’s kid’s were at the resort for 2 days that we were there, and told us to ask for Sheldon. My nephew is still talking about how good a time he had with Sheldon.Let’s not forget – Conwayne. Conwayne is a Lifeguard and we had some really good talks off and on during the day. He is very good at what he does, and a real pleasant young man. We had some good laughs, and he was always making sure us and the rest of the guests were safe on the beach and in the pool. One day, Conwayne, even told some young guys in the pool to stop their “horse play” in the pool – messing around with a blow up Duck. They were not listening to Conwayne, so I swam over said “what the duck”, and took the duck away to prevent any accidents. This is the kind of lifeguard I would want to have working at my resort – on top of things - making sure no one gets hurt !! Way to go Conwayne !! A special mention goes out to Lance, a grounds keeper, who I had a very nice conversation with. Lance was always working hard, and always had a smile. The grounds at MBV are beautiful and without people like Lance they would not look as nice as they do – Thanks, Lance, your hard work – it did not go unnoticed !! Almost every day, after spending most of it on the beach, we bellied up to the pool bar. All we ever ordered was breaded Shrimp, and Lobster salad as an afternoon snack. The Shrimp and Lobster was outstanding, and don’t forget to say “lobster lobster salad” – translation “heavy on the lobster” when ordering !!By now you probably have figured out that my Wife and I are “foodies”. Thank-you, for the excellent quality of food at MBV – big shout out to all the chefs on property. We really enjoyed the curried mutton and jerk chicken on Jamaica night. Not to mention the oxtail which we enjoyed on 2 separate occasions at the buffet – on our last night we found oxtail at the buffet – what a treat !!Our room was a Level Beachfront room, and it was modern, comfortable, and 45 steps to the ocean. What a beautiful way to wake up every marning to sweet Jamaica. Latoya Brown was our housekeeper, and she did a WONDERFUL job at keeping our room clean – much appreciated !!And last but not least it was a pleasure to have met Gloria. She was very kind, pleasant, and sincerely cared to know how our stay was going on two separate occasions. And thanks to Venice for her warm smile at the Level lounge. We also enjoyed some friendly conversation with Sanita and Sinead. Appleton 12 year old with wata, and Hennessy and coca cola for my wife – what a combo – any premium alcohol is at your fingertips – every night before dinner we had a pre-drink at the Level lounge – very nice spot !! There is probably something or someone I forgot to mention, but I only have so much space on trip advisor for my comments. Bottom line - From the moment we entered the front gates of Melia Braco Village, we were treated with courteous service, amazing food, and lots of smiles that made us feel like Family. We will definitely return to MBV !!Peace, Love, Respect … D&S
I can't believe it's taken me this long to review when our trip was so fantastic. We just wanted a couple's getaway after the SO had a long stretch of working 7 day/wk, and we heard great things about Jamaica. Let me say, we never left the property so I still don't know anything about Jamaica. But, everyone here was AWESOME. We stayed on the level side (worth it) and met awesome people from day one - special shout out to Tabitha and the crew at the Level side. I'm so SORRY I don't remember everyone's names this long after returning so shame on me. Check in was a breeze, I didn't hear anyone ever say "no" (although, they should have at times), and front beginning to end it was a great vacation.Food is excellent and we enjoyed the buffet breakfast and jerk chicken on the other side of the property. Tips are correct - bring water shoes for the beach or you will regret it. The mini bar isn't refreshed daily, but honestly if that's your complaint, get off your butt and go downstairs for a snack/drink. OR, stay lazy and use the cell phone they give you to call for room service. There is NO NEED for the mini bar since there is FOOD EVERYWHERE. Truly, vacationing here is an exercise is sloth and gluttony and all the wonderful sins of excess all-inclusive are designed to be. After this stay, it's hard to imagine being pleased with staying anywhere else on the island (or Caribbean). We enjoyed the level as most of the other guests were couples or adults with a single small child. The pool/beach side was quiet and we never dealt with any out of control guests. If you're considering the upgrade for yourself, do it.
