My wife and I stayed in this hotel in the early 2007. Although it doesn’t have the standards of a 5* hotel, the place is nice overall, well landscaped between the road and the sea. It has interesting buildings, a beautiful garden, good pools and a very well kept beach.
The rooms are basic, clean and pleasant if you don’t expect too much. The room furniture shows it has served quite a few seasons.
The staff is average for this kind of tourism, mostly friendly, sometimes helpful; a minus to the reception staff.
Unfortunately I have to agree with all the other members who gave a minus to the food in this hotel. Although there is a certain variety and the food is even well presented, there is something wrong either with the ingredients the kitchen uses either with us, the guests who get ill after eating there. I had to eat dry biscuits for 3 days and to take medication after the first dinner at Meliah.
Final observation regarding drinks: if you don’t have an all inclusive package, the drinks (water + few beers per day) will cost you a lot (if you bother to do the math in the end).
