Wow, holiday destination for sure! Mel & Ray offer a warm and luxurious accommodation right on the beach! We watched the spectacular sunset every evening from their private beach chairs! We stayed with a large group of people and thus got to see most rooms up close, not one complaint from even one person! What is not to love? Clean,...

We have just returned from the most wonderful stay at Casa Melray. From the wonderful greeting from the hosts to large, meticulously clean, air-conditioned rooms. The pool and area were also beautiful, clean and continually attended by the gardener. The outdoor kitchen/bbq area was a total bonus as well as the outside washrooms and shower from the beach entrance.The beaches...

To say our time at Casa Melray was worth every penny would be the biggest understatement of the year. From the moment my first email inquiry landed in Mel’s inbox, we were greeted and taken care of with immense care. Melanie was helpful, sweet, kind and genuinely cared about ensuring we were being looked over. We arrived in Liberia, after...

Traveled with a group of 10. Discovered this gem through a local friend. We had 4 rooms and they're all beautiful! Much better than the photos we saw! Fabulous people. Mel and Ray are great as are Leah and Nelson who all work hard to make their home your home away.

My parents came upon this boutique resort and wanted to have the entire family celebrate their 50th there - awesome decision! From start to finish, the Casa Melray "experience" was 1st class!

When we weren't lounging around next to the pool, Mel was also there to help us quickly arrange rides, tours and even pedicures. She baked goodies almost every day for us to enjoy.
