- 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.
This hotel was in a great location and all the staff was very friendly. Being firm Colorado I was expecting to vacation at an Americanized hotel in Mexico,unfortunately that was not the case. The food was very authentic and we only found a few items at breakfast,lunch and dinner that we liked. My kids basically ate the same meals everyday because of the selection. The pool seemed dirty to me, there a lots of trees near by so there was always leaves in the pool. There were many broken tiles around the pool and it was outdated. The night shows we're always great and we really enjoyed them. The hard part was the lack of English, every night the announcer would mainly speak Spanish with occasional English. That was the biggest downfall of all was we felt we could not speak to anyone because most of the guest spoke Spanish and same thing with the staff. I would not recommend this hotel to any of my friends. We found ourselves leaving most of the time. The room was sufficient and clean. We will not be going back.
The AC in the rooms dont work properly. We got changed 3 times and it was the same , last one was a little better and they provided us with a fan. I opted to just endure it but couldn't sleep too well. The service and installations are wonderful , the hotel should check on the rooms with poor AC and undergo renovations. We heard other guests complaining of the same problem.
Overall stay was just OK. The resort could use lots of improvements in the pool area, swim up bar, and Air conditioning. Beach chairs were filled with bird poop near the pool and on the beach. Vendors walk around on the beach trying to sell stuff which makes it impossible to relax. AC in the rooms were not working well at all.
Melia is a nice hotel. The grounds are very nice, with lots of gardens and large fish/turtle ponds. It's a bit outdated, but if you look past that it was a great time. The beach is beautiful and talk to freddy on the beach for all the free activities. Drinks and food are very good. The service and the shows are the best things about this resort. I would definitely come back!!!!
We stayed for 1 week - it was excellent. Booked a premium ocean front, arrived early at Noon and our room was ready in 15 minutes. Service was great, any dinner reservation we requested, we received. (Italian was our favorite, we ate there 3 times.) We tipped (singles) for drinks (I think we were the only one tipping), and the the bartender working the beach would bring us fresh drinks every time he came by - AWESOME. The staff worked really hard. Each morning we would see them cleaning the pool, or working on the grounds. The sand was "swept" daily, allowing for a fresh step into the sand each morning. After reading other reviews, I would like to say that we really enjoyed the food. We thought it was quite good, huge variety, and always well prepared and clean in the food area. Also, we really enjoyed the activities. We smoked the non-Americans in the "riffle range" (it's a bb gun) and the batting cage. (Apparently, we were the only ones who had done those activities before. The staff working couldn't believe our skill.) We also really enjoyed the climbing wall. Shout out to Freddy working the "beach activities" area. He was there everyday, handing out boogie boards and kayaks, and giving great info on what to do!If you go, book the Premium, its worth it. The VIP check in area bypasses all the lines, has great service (Another Shout Out to Genesis who made it so easy for first-timers), drinks available and a computer VIP guests can use to check-in for airlines (or whatever they need). Plus these rooms have the early check-in and late check-out permitted, stocked mini-bars, hammocks hanging on the balcony, and a great ocean front view!! (Also - there was no timeshare presentation requested.)
