Melia Puerto Vallarta
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Melia is an excellent hotel! The resort is quite large and well kept up. The staff are professional and friendly and the rooms are up to date and absolutely lovely. The Melia has a great beach and one of the biggest pool in all of Puerto Vallarta. There is so much activity going on at this hotel, mainly because of its amazing kids program, but there's also plenty to do for adults and teens alike! This hotel offers everything from a baby club, to a Flintstones themed park (complete with live characters), to water sports and a firing range! Families, singles, couples, students, and any active person would have an awesome time at this hotel! The Melia even offers a special room category called the ME Experience. It's a more luxurious, high class category, for adults only, and the rooms are amazing.
Melia Puerto Vallarta is located in the exclusive Marina Vallarta close to various shops and restaurants. A fantastic resort for couples and families, with a wide variety of fun-filled clubs and activities for kids of all ages included so you parents, can relax all day long. Melia Puerto Vallarta also offers the upscale ME adults only section with upgraded rooms.
Location: Beachfront resort located in the Marina district, 15 minutes from downtown, 5 minutes from the airport.
The babysitting Service was excellent. Our daughter is only ten months and I was a little nervous about leaving her but they were excellent and took great care of her.The waiters were excellent too. Food was okay. The a la carte restaurants were excellent.I highly recommend this place if you have a family of small children.
I had better expectations. No Ice Machines on the floors, it is only available from restaurants. Dirty lounge chairs at the pool, loud music, very dirty bowls displaying food items at the buffet. They looked like they had all been drug by trucks, they were chipped, cracked, food presentation was aweful, poor choices, not very friendly wait staff. just a very disappointing place to spend my last day of vacation after a week at the beautiful Hard Rock Vallarta.
We booked Melia for a family reunion. If you want an authentic Mexican experience, including food choices, this is the place for you. If you have children, this is the place for you. If you want to watch busloads of HUNDREDS (300 the first time) of people (for us it was teenagers) unload into the resort, this place is for you. The resort also seems to be THE place for local conferences, inundating the facility with hundreds of people. We got a couple different answers when we asked what was going on. I watched as another English couple asked the same question about why there was hundreds of teenagers in the lobby. The employee lied to them. I had made a friend who was Mexican and an employee of Melia and he had told me the truth, so I told them the truth. He told me that Melia offers their facilities at discounted prices for the in country population. What we were never told was the Melia is the resort that caters to primarily Spanish speaking folks. It would go easier for you if you can speak Spanish. The waiters try to accommodate the very few English speaking guests that were there when we were there, but there were a few that literally rolled their eyes at us. Twice I had employees at the front desk have a conversation and then walk away without acknowledging me. They were standing across the desk from me. We did have many very very friendly staff encounters and enjoyed their patience and helpfulness as we tried to speak Spanish. They made our stay enjoyable. It's too bad that the front desk people put a shadow on that. Edgar was one of the nicest waiters! The facilities were being repaired when we were there. It is run down, so it needs extensive repair. The elevator broke down numerous times! There were two elevators, but only one was being used when we were there. We had a family member that had mobility issues, so it was very inconvenient. They were quite slow in fixing it. We reported it 3 times by 3 different family members on one breakdown and each time the front desk would say they didn't know and it would be fixed right away. It was 2 hours before it was running again. If you see the elevator at 4 th floor and not moving, start walking the stairs. Our room was cleaned well for the first few days. We had tipped the cleaner. But after 4 days, we weren't given any bathroom products, the mini bar ( bottled water, pop and beer) wasn't stocked, no cleaning in living area etc. We had little white spiders crawling all over the counters. Basically, we felt very mislead as to what type of resort we had booked into. To us, it was poor value for the money. We won't be back
This facility is good for the family if you have little kids, but it may not be good enough if you have pre-teens and teens. Not much to do once you have spend a couple of days. It may be a good idea if you are planning on spending your day at the many attractions available outside the facility. The pool is crowded and the drinks are watered down. The food choices are limited to a couple of places and the food is average to low average. Every night the hotel offers entertainment for the whole family, but only a couple of shows are worth your time. The facility needs a face lift. In particular the pool, you may see the workers cleaning the dirty filters with water hoses and you may not want to go in the water after that.
It seems like this was a great hotel in the 90s, but thats not good in 2017. The entire hotel is ok, it has a good pool, beach, and activities for kids. It could use some work because it seems you're in good hotel back in the 90s.
