We stayed in the Laguna room which has direct access to private lagoon (pool) which was great because the resort pool shuts at 6pm! Because I'm not a fan of swimming when the sun and heat is at its height, not having access to pool during cooler part of the day would've been a real holiday let down so I'm really pleased that we got the Laguna room.
Inside, the room was spacious and well appointed. It is very comfortable for 2 but could accommodate 3 adults if needed. The only thing I found lacking was an iPod player or some sort of music system. This would've taken the room up a notch in my mind.
The resort itself is quite well equipped and the staff are wonderfully helpful and attentive. Couldn't fault the service and facilities were very clean.
Food & drinks were reasonably priced - largely similar to Australian prices. That said, breakfast is usually included and offers wide range of food and happy hour at beach bar from 4 - 7pm each night where drinks are 2 for 1 provide good value.
If you walk along the beach, the resort is only a couple of minutes' walk to The Bay, which is a restaurant complex offering some great dining options. Along the same track you can get to the Bali Collection which is a shopping mall. It's a bit of a tourist trap but it does offer a wider range of restaurants for all budgets and has a couple of convenience stores to pick up supplies. There's also a department store (Sogo) and lots of souvenir shops. It's a nice change from the resorts.
Overall we enjoyed staying at Melia and will be back there again next year.
