“Country road take me home...”
Reviewed 13 July 2008

Me and my boyfriend came to Melati for our annual vacations and we stayed there for 7 nights (6/7/08 - 13/7/08). Both of us come from Greece and we both have very great travelling experience, as my boyfriend is a prominent doctor and we travel at least 10 times a year staying always at 5 stars hotels. So, this is our experience from our staying at Melati. 1. Melati is on the making; it is not finished yet so there is a lot of things to be done still. 2. The private beach is very small, the waters are very shallow and the sea has plenty of seaweed and small rocks. 3. The main swimming pool is very small for a 5* hotel, very shallow (max depth 1.20) and not very well kept. 4. There are only 2 restaurants serving a very limited selection of food and "the Deus ex machina" there is the hotel chef Aurellio who goes to any length to save the day. 5. Housekeeping maintenance is hardly acceptable. 6. The private "pool" in our garden pool villa room was never attented and the water was never checked out. We both totally avoided the use of it. 7. Although it was not the raining season we had heavy showers and thunderstorms 3 days out of 7, so be prepared. 8. There must be found a way to control the mosquitto problem because nothing else we tried could stop the little monsters from sucking your blood and the problem is really a Big One. 9. The location is in my opinion as bad as it can be since it's far from the heart of island's life. A taxi is necessary to take you there and get you back.
On the bright side the staff is excellent, very polite, always smilling, eager to serve and as a matter of fact the did everything to prepare a very nice birthday party for my friend. It's the only thing that makes "the clock ticking".
So, to sum things up: we came here with great expectations for the best vacations of our life as advised by our travel agent whom we held greatly responsible for the dissapointment we have experienced and we ended up wishing to get back home as soon as possible or else " Country road take me home to the place I belong....."
This place has the potential to be a great resort as they wish it to be but a lot of work needs to be done yet.
