Who has been to Melia Caribe Tropical?

Hi !

I think my family has almost narrowed it down & everyone likes Melia Caribe Tropical.

I have a few questions about the hotel from people who have been or are planning to go. The website didn't have much info.

1)We are planning on going the last week of July. Since its the summer will alot of the restaurants be closed?

2) Do you need reservations?

3) How is the kids programs ? We will be traveling with 3 little kids (2,3 & 5)

4) How is the casino? Big enough to keep us busy at night?

5)What do they do for nightly entertainment?

6)How long do the bars stay open?

We are traveling with a large group & want to make sure there is enough for everyone to do!!

Thanks!!!!!!!

We stayed at the Melia last Sept, and had a fantastic time.

In resonce to your questions.

1,They may have some of the resturants clossed, as its not peak season for them and the hotel may not be full, they tend to action repairs during this time, when we were there 2 of the resturants were shut, however since there are so many restutants this was no problem, and the food in all resturants was some of the best we have had on this type of hotel.

2, Its better to book, you call from youir room from 9am and can book for the night and the following day, sometimes we forgot and just turned up and they were still happy to provide a table, you may have to wait, but there are so many bars to relax in its never really a problem, you do have the evening buffet at the "Market Place" which is a very good buffet, we did only use it for our first night and then for lunch, on the last day. We used the a'la cartes every night which was great.

3, Not sure with regards to kids, as our party was adults only (or big kids should i say!)

4, Casino is quite big, the sports bar is in the casino, there are quite a few tables and quite a few slots and a pool table.

5, Every night is a show, and when we were there friday night they had the "Fire and Desire" night in one of the bars, which is good with fire shows and dancers on roller skates.And not forgetting the Disco, and many many bars which all have "table service" which was very good.

6 I cant remember what time the bars close, maybe 2pm, then when we stayed the Domincain Resturant seved drinks all through the night and had a hot buffet aswell.

I saw this blurb at the bottom of Air Transat's website.

"Please take note:The buffet on the beach, the bar in Tropical section and the italian a la carte restaurant are closed until further notice. Le Capri and Hokkaiko restaurants will be operating every day. The other a la carte restaurants will be closed in rotation."

No problem!

The Resturant we liked the best was the French, and the Japanese, however they are all to a good standard and its nice to have the option of using them every night.
