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.
We have a very bad experience on pourto Vallarta melia. We going before to Cancun and Cabo melia it’s perfect hotel and that’s why we choose melia again on pourto Vallarta but it’s completely different and it’s not Comparable to Cabo and Cancun melia
Hotel air conditioning was sub par, and the rooms had a terrible smell. Food selection was ok, but both my child and husband got extremely sick. The poolside service was great, but the drinks had a strange taste. I wouldn't visit again
Freddy, down at the beach, was very helpful in planning our excursion and helping us find whatever we needed to make our vacation fun! The food was fantastic and the staff was friendly and great at remembering names.
From the very beginning it looked like a mistake the building looked like it has been abandoned for 2 years, broken pieces of floor, horrible painting job, water leaks broken elevators...During the check in you are forced to present an id which will be fully scanned in order to be registered (this is a crime in Mexico). My room was not better than the first impression, broken A.C., malfunctioning safety box even the shower was horrible.In resume I'd never recommend this hotel to anybody, you can get a better deal for sure.
ResortOur group arrived in the wee hours of the morning after our flight delay. The Sunwing reps made sure there was food/drinks for us. The check in was seamless. The staff at the front desk would get a 10 rating from me for their very friendly, helpful and professional demeanor. They made sure we were satisfied with our room and made changes/accommodations whenever they could. Our first kids and co room was a little cramped, musty and stuffy; the bunk beds have thin mattresses. We moved to a better room with a better air circulation and a better view. We asked for and got a fan which helped with the stuffiness. We could have paid more and upgraded but since I didn’t feel I would be in the room that much, it worked. Great shower pressure and very clean. As other reviewers have mentioned the resort is dated, but it was always clean, beach and pool are great – if you are looking for a north American type resort with no leaves in the pool, American food, no bugs, this is not for you. All staff don’t speak English, but they will find someone who can. I speak rudimentary Spanish so it worked. It’s a very family friendly resort, kids are not frowned upon. The pool area can get crowded, but there is enough of space/chairs in my opinion, save one early if you like a particular spot (yes, the sign says “no saving chairs”). The bar staff are great and we loved the snack area. Took advantage of some of the zumba classes, archery, bingo, ping pong and tried the kayaks (all free). For kayaks (and other free activities, the front desk doesn’t always have that info) see Freddy at the beach, he is amazing - very friendly and helpful. Had great suggestions for excursions, etc. Loved the evening entertainment. The staff work very hard and have first class acts/shows. I enjoyed them all. We weren’t hounded by time share sellers or vendors on the beach – maybe we got lucky. FoodI loved the food, lots of Mexican fare which I love but may not be for everyone. The buffet, in my opinion, has enough of a variety to satisfy everybody. Missed mangoes… they made an appearance now and then. All the wait staff at all the restaurants were very good, I did not experience a single rude person… they would all go the extra mile. Please tip them, they deserve it. They knew I liked my coffee with caliente milk, so would rush to do that when I came in (the coffee is very good by the way). They would constantly check that everything is going well. All you have to do is ask. There were out of bananas at the buffet, I asked and before you knew it, I had two for my mother.Tips/Suggestions Take pesos instead of US dollars. You get better deals. Bring good bug spray, you will need it; lots of sun block/sun screen, it was very hot, clothes pins (for your clothes on the balcony, we had some torrential rains with lots of wind in the nights). You get lots of bottled water to drink. The tap water is safe for brushing teeth and showering. Wi-Fi is spotty, but good in the lobby. You can use the lobby computer for your check in. On the day you are leaving, ask if you can have a late check out so you can enjoy the facilities. There is a marina within walking distance that has souvenirs, spa services which are cheaper than the resort. We took a cab to Puerto Vallarta (130/140 pesos each way). Very safe to walk the beautiful cobblestoned Malecón, the boardwalk that runs parallel to Banderas Bay on one side and shops/bars on the other, there is a good flea market where you can bargain and get good deals. I visited the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a beautiful landmark (yes, I visit old churches every city I go to, much to the chagrin of my family!). We had fresh coconut with the sweetest water from a vendor on the street, roasted corn and tacos.
