“holiday in the sun”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

just returned from the melas hotel and i must say it was fantastic. got there at 2 in the morning and was greeted at the door by the staff and shown to our room. the rooms are a great size and have everything you could want, no need to take towels for the room or beach as all there including white robes. shower is to die for wish i could have bought it home. lovely outdoor pool which looked very inviting but was very cold and a lovely heated indoor pool with steam room and saunas. the food was amazing lots of different places to eat and lots of choice. hotel is right on the beach with a nice walk up the prom to the shops at side. we were able to keep our room until 3 in the afternoon at no extra charge on our last day and you can eat and drink until you are picked up unlike some hotels. Just one downside and that was it was very much predominantly germans staying there, but thats not the hotels fault and really didnt matter to us and it may be a case that once the season starts properly in a few weeks there may be more english people staying there but this certainly wouldnt put me off going there again.

We stayed at the Melas hotel from 27th January to 10th February 2013 and although we had stayed here many times before this was our first visit since the hotel was refurbished a year ago and once again we were not disappointed. On arrival the staff were friendly and helpful and we were given superb rooms with twin beds, 2 sofas and a bathroom with a bath with built in jaccuzzi and a seperate walk in shower which had a large rain shower head. The mini bar was stocked with soft drinks and beer and replenished everyday. As usual the rooms were spotlessly clean and the maid did a very good cleaning job every day. Food in the restaurant was superb as usual and I defy anyone not to find something they fancied to eat from salads and main courses and desserts to die for. The hotel has an International restaurant on the 9th floor which can be booked at guest relations at no charge during your stay. TheWestern theme night we chose was terrific with excellent food well cooked and presented and very attentive staff. Not to be missed. Our adult son stayed with us and was in the room next door with the same standard of room as ourselves. My wife and him had a course of massage treatments in the Spa during our stay and were very impressed with the professional treatment they received and at a cheaper price than in UK. The indoor pool was heated very warm and was most enjoyable. The hotel provides bathrobes in every guest room together with pool towels which is a very useful addition. In the evening there are shows or sometimes live music which is enjoyed by the German guests who love to get up and dance. Sitting in the lounge area after dinner the waiter service is non stop and it is nice not to have to go to the bar to get a drink. All in all a most enjoyable stay and highly recommended.

Room Tip: We were in rooms 1220 and 1221 which are large probably classed as family rooms with a very good sid...

We visited Melas twice already. July 2011 and June 2012.Rooms been always kept very clean.Food was fantastic many choices for everyone.Especially breakfasts ( freshly made pancakes,omelettes,French toast) an dinners with freshly grilled fish or lamb.Hotel got many facilities as gym, spa, indoor pool,water slides, beach bar etc.I would recommend both A la carte restaurants.We really loved Turkish one.
Great staff very friendly all the time.Hotel beach kept clean all the time and is just superb.Lovely sand and warm sea ( no rocks) We r very fussy but in Melas we couldn't moan a bit as it was perfect.Definitely will come back again.

I stayed in melas from 12-29th it was amazing to stay but my only complaint was I had a room pool facing and I had younge kids giggling and scream and jumping in pools I would reconmend if your booking a room stay away from pool unless your use to loud noise. Everything else amazing specially the entertainment and staff, food amazing would defently come back 9/10

Fantastic hotel with excellent and friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble for any of them. The room was lovely and spacious and spotlessly clean and bedsheets/towels were decorated superbly everyday with flowers etc. The food is absolutely amazing!!!, something for everyone... Could eat all day to your hearts content!
Theres also something for everyone in the evenings, whether you like to party or chill or have children to entertain, you will not be disappointed.
Overall, a fab holiday and would definitely recommend to anybody!

Overall this hotel meets all your needs, its location is fantastic and we had a lovely time. The hotel is kept immaculately clean and the food choices are endless. Our room was of a good standard and the shower was excellent. The only downsides were, some of the staff had a poor command of English, in particular two of the reception staff, they were quite rude and in need of retraining. For a hotel of a five star rating I expected better. The majority of hotel guests were German, so it was difficult to hold conversations and socialise. Without exception all the staff were fluent in German. I would reccommend this hotel, but bear in mind some of my comments!!

Room Tip: Full sea view rooms not offered to UK guests in brochure!! only side sea view rooms offered.
