First off...skip ORBITZ for international travel! They're horrible. If you run into trouble of any kind, you're completely on your own.
We stayed @ the Melia Doubletree for 10 days at the end of June and absolutely loved it! The lobby is gorgeous in marble & stained glass with fresh flowers. Our room was done all in teak wood with a tile floor, a/c, coffee maker, HBO in English, etc. The breakfast buffet is a little pricey but OFF THE HOOK with fresh fruits, pastry, oatmeal, bacon, egg dishes & empanadas. They also have regular faire that include sandwiches & burgers. The hotel is very well kept & lusciously beautiful with a nice gym, beautiful grounds & golf course. It also has a huge pool & a jacuzzi plus a great business center upstairs where you can get online & send faxes. Best of all it's all free. The staff is warm & friendly & will go the extra mile to please you. Emilio @ the tour desk was awesome helping us navigate to some off-beat spots. I cried when we left. Everyone was so sweet to us.
There's also a pizza place, the Gourmet Station restaurant & an AM/PM market that sells fresh baked goods, fruit & veges along w/incidentals you might have forgotten to bring, within close walking distance of the hotel. They're much cheaper than eating at the hotel & all VERY GOOD.
