Stayed at hotel for 6 days. BOTH myself and fiance ill after 5 days. So ill that the hotel doctor sent us to the hospital because we were dehydrated, nauseous, feverish, with diarrhea and he feared food poisoning. Hospital feared same and made us stay overnight for rehydration and gastroenteritis by giving fluids and heavy antibiotics. Next day left but not before hospital collected over $3,000 for the two of us for the stay and expenses. Hotel never acknowledged that we had been harmed by our stay. In addition to a copy of the diagnosis, copies of the bill, and copy of my credit card statement, they made us obtain two extra sets of documents ffrom the hospital. Seems they had hoped that we would give up. After six months, they "offer" us a 20% discount on an UPGRADE on our next visit! What an insult.
I will never go back to this place. The names of the people who were involved were Elizabeth Perez, Dr. Frank Reyes, and Gledwin Mills. They simply dont care that someone was harmed by staying at the Melia Caribe (as an aside, my fiance and I were apart for three days prior to our trip which meant we could not have jointly eaten something before the trip which would have made us sick on the trip - we got sick ON THE RESORT). I have traveled extensively for over 10 years and not experienced what I did at this resort. I hope all take this into account before going to this place (I have received responses to my review from other people who have gotten sick there and received the same apathy).
