We just got back from Melia Puerto Vallarta ... We had a wonderful time. I wasted my time being nervous about the trip after reading some of the crappy reviews (here). The Lobby and Pool area are gorgeous... just ask yourself how your backyard looks compared to these pictures. I spent many days at the pool, and it was NEVER dirty. I don't know who these people are who are complaining - do they expect 5 stars by American standards? Maybe they have never vacationed in Mexico before. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was very good - one funny thing. One previous reviewer (Family Friendly Average Resort) Loved the Mexican food, but not the Italian. We had the EXACT opposite experience. I think it is just individual tastes. Do not be afraid to go here. It is a great place to vacation. We went without kids and were a little worried it would be too kiddy friendly, would we be surrounded by screaming kids the whole time? But no it was fine. Plenty of adults there too, and lots of room to spread out. I would definitely go back. There is always a bar and/or a place to eat open somewhere. The beds are firm, but I love that, so it was great for me. 5 minute taxi drive from airport is a plus too.
