We have been going to the Melia resort for over 13 years and always enjoy the gorgeous grounds, beautiful lobbies and attentive staff. Things are a bit different with covid and the hotel being slow, but the service shined at the buffet 2/19/21! We celebrated a birthday w/ friends and family and had the best servers! Gary was fantastic! He was filling champagne glasses, funny and made our evening so special. Veriato,Christian,yeremi and artiza were equally delightful and attentive. Gladys a supervisor and guest services,Katherine are always the sweetest and most helpful ladies! Ernesto was our go to guy for reservations and literally anything we needed he had it for us. Great vacation and exceptional staff!

Hotel's Favourite
It was not our first trip to this hotel, but it was the first time during Corona times. In spite of this difficult situation, it was again a great experience there! Everyday the workers of the hotel make you smile-no matter whether it’s raining or the sun is shining. The food is delicious and the nature is stunning. Everywhere palms, a nice beach and a beautiful sea. Especially the entertainers La Chiquita, Juanito, Sexy Body, Cappuccino and Marionell are doing a great job. Latin Dance lessons, Zumba, Aqua Gym, Aqua Spinning, Cocktail courses...they offer so many activities for their guests. If you have questions, they always have an open ear for you. We thank them for such an excellent time in the DR-with them we felt like being at home. Keep it up like this. We would always come back.

I am a business man, and I travel all over the world, and I have never experienced such a scam as this. I chose the D.R. For a relaxing vacation with my wife and 5 children. I chose this resort for it's reputation as a luxury hotel, and commensurate safety and security. First, prices for the excursions through the hotel were marked up insanely high. But that seems to be normal in all-inclusives these days, and we assumed they were chosen for the highest safety standards. We also noticed throughout the week that the housekeeping staff was taking pictures of the guest rooms after they cleaned them, but thought maybe that was for quality control, and thought nothing of it. On the fifth day, we took a boat tour. When we returned, my adult children's luggage had been ransacked and their valuables stolen, including cash that their grandparents had given them for the trip, and their X Box game console. There had been no forced entry into their room. We immediately went to the front desk and reported the incident. The manager in charge took our report, but then proceeded to tell us that "security " had taken pictures of drugs inside of my daughter's luggage, and if a police report was filed, those pictures would have to be included in the report. They said they would look into the incident, but offered us no compensation, and would not even refund the remaining two nights we had paid for. This was a well-planned theft, and considering the Manager in Charge's response, the entire hotel staff was involved. Having traveled to Mexico multiple times, I knew that getting the police involved would be a mistake. Somehow, my daughter would end up being the focus of their investigation, and I would likely be extorted for more money by the police. The last two days were horrible and we couldn't wait to get on the plane. Neither I or my family will EVER return to the Dominican Republic, and we strongly advise anyone who does to stay as far from this hotel as possible.

Dear Wanderlust1502, First and foremost, we would like to thank you for choosing us as your destination for your family vacations. We sincerely regret any inconvenience encountered and the fact that we were unable to meet your expectations. Likewise, let us emphasize that the safety of our guests is a priority for us and that the search and investigation process is part of the protocols we must execute in order to provide the guest with the appropriate assistance in a situation of such magnitude. In the same order, let us point out that we have strict security and access control procedures in place within our facilities, ranging from constant supervision of common areas, supervision of staff, checkpoints and screening for internal staff and suppliers, as well as the inclusion of a 24-hour CCTV surveillance system. We also provide free safe deposit box service in our rooms so that our guests can safeguard their valuables. We regret that our response to your case was not to your entire satisfaction. After a thorough investigation, we were unable to find any evidence linking one of our employees to the loss. We reiterate our apologies for the various inconveniences experienced, we hope to have the privilege of serving you again and together with our great team to regain your trust in Meliá. Kind regards, Guest Service Center Management

The overall stay was great. We met a few staff member that made our family vacation and stay at Melia Caribe Beach an enjoyable and fun stay. We met Elianny Reyes and Martina Guerero, 2 hostess at the Merkado restaurant, always very welcoming, even with the mask on, we could tell they were always smiling, and very outgoing. Also, we had some amazing waitstaff, like Adrian Jimenes, always ready to get our drink orders, always checking to make sure we were happy and satisfied with our food and drinks. The only issue we found at this place, was the Doctor on site. She was kind of rude. Being a Doctor, it made me feel like I was bothering her. We needed doctor's referrals for COVID PCR test for 3 members of my family returning to Brazil, and she made those referrals with an attitude of I was holding her for doing something else, even though was nobody at The Circle Clinic (Resort Clinic), and I was paying $125 USD for each test.
