“Fantastic Honeymoon!”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

My wife and I used this resort as our honeymoon in early June. We were both very impressed with the services and attitudes of the staff. Plenty of things to do with a beautiful facilities. The beaches had soft sand and the oceans were clear. Perfect weather from sunrise to sunset. The food was wonderful. The buffet had an assortment of 6ish small desserts we could share. We never had the same dessert twice during our 7 day stay. The in-resort restaurants had great food with friendly service. The resort had scheduled events throughout the day. The most active was the night life, starting around 9 pm. The staff would put on shows each night that were very entertaining. There is something for everyone, comedy, music, acting, dancing, etc. I would highly recommend this as a honeymoon get-away.

We just arrived home from 5 days at this beautiful resort. From the moment our butler, Johnfi Rivera greeted us and took us to our room, our royal service began. Johnfi was polite, eager to please and very knowledgeable about the resort, restaurants and spa. Johnfi made our dinner reservations, our pool cabana reservations and made himself available on the beach to check on us and get us drinks! Johnfi recommended Palazzo Restaurant for dinner and it was amazing.The staff at the Palazzo restaurant were very polite, the food delicious and the service excellent. The Yhi Spa on the property of the resort is very peaceful and beautiful. The hydrotherapy which is included in the royal service is very memorable!
I would strongly recommend royal service to everyone deciding to stay at this resort & perhaps you will be lucky enough to get Johnfi Rivera as your butler!

Room Tip: Highly recommend the Royal Service Option. Any room within the resort is lovely and spacious.

Erin and I were here in early June for a 5 day get away with friends. Our friends had done the research and selected the resort. We had not stayed at a Melia property prior to this. It was our 3rd trip to the DR...all have been great, but this was by far, the best. We booked the Royal Service package and it was well worth it. Our butler Luis Martinez did a phenomenal job of taking care of us. From running baths, to making reservations, to just checking in with us regularly,..his service was outstanding.

The resort is immaculate, the rooms are more than sufficient and included whirlpool tubs, which Erin really likes. The AC worked well, water pressure was ok, pillows were OK. The in room coffee maker was a little tricky to figure out, but once we did, it was OK.

The beach was very nice, but the beach service we received from the staff was terrific....very accommodating! The hotel bars were excellent and again, the staff was outstanding. The restaurantsrovides sufficient selections for each meal. Gabi Beach and Palazzo were our favorites.

There is plenty to do with lots of free activities from which to choose. We chose to relax and spend most of our time beach side or pool side in the Bali beds...very comfortable and relaxing!

On the downside, there were some minor issues with getting the showers to work in the spa and one of the restaurants is closed for renovations, but neither of these is going to "make or break" a stay here.

The beaches and pools had ample supply of towels. Night time provided fun for those that like to dance or simply play games in an amazing tropical atmosphere.

The best part of the resort is the staff. They all seemed well. Trained and know how to provide outstanding customer service...well done Melia!

From the moment we stepped onto the resort property until the time we departed, my family and I were treated like royalty. The staff was amazing, especially Franklin our concierge who helped us with everything from dinner reservations to booking excursions.
June was a perfect time to go: Not too crowded and we were able to get lounges by the pool and beach with ease.
The food choices were plentiful and delicious. The only disappointment was that the Mexican restaurant and the casino were both closed for renovations, something that could have been disclosed prior to booking.
The cleanliness of the resort was impeccable. For a resort situated right on the beach, great care was taken to ensure sand was not tracked past the beach area itself.

This is the most beautiful resort that I have stayed in. We travel 3 times a year in the Caribbean. This place is fantastic. The people is amazing. The food is extremely good. My husband is vegan and he is always stuff. If you are a seafood lover this is the place. The buffet is so good you will not even bother with a-la-cart. It is great too. Must do the zip line and ATV. Bring lots of one dollar bill if you go on the ATV. Lots of kids on the trails. If someone is having a bad day, you will never see it in their work or expression. Spa was amazing. I had a full body massage on the beach. Very relaxing. I'm going again in July.

Room Tip: Don't worry if you don't get to go to all the a la cart. Buffet is amazing

The Room was Beautiful, the pools were the best I've ever seen anywhere in the world. The Ocean and beach was picturesque, I wish there was not all the floating seaweed but it hardly detracts from the over all beauty of the beach. The loungers and beds and canopied respites both poolside and on the beach were world class perfect, plenty for everyone and so comfortable and aesthetic - you could not help thinking ; "We truly are in Paradise"

Luis was our concierge and he was outstanding. He met and exceeded our expectations. He made reservations for us for every night we were there, and attended to our every need and exceeded our expectations consistently!

Keyla, was a hostess at several of the restaurants we dined at and she was absolutely amazing with her service and friendliness. She completely exceeded every expectation we had. She was so friendly and personable and helpful. She was proactive and often anticipated our needs even before we did. We felt like we had a new friend - simply amazing!

We had other great service from many people like Carlos and Angela. I must say though, that it was Keyla and Luis that combined to make our experience such an extraoordinary one..
