Group of 16 getaway

It was 16 of us, we all had a great time. the pool can use a little TLC. We got to ride the bus to El Malecon. (Mexican boardwalk) It was a lot cheaper than taxis. great experience. Looking forward for next time.

Pleasantly Surprised

I was a little concerned because I had read some unfavorable reviews, especially about the staff but I had an awesome experience. Everyone was bilingual, professional and very friendly. I was pleasantly surprised that there was no carpeting...anywhere. Food was available anytime of the day and up to 5 am, then again at 7am. Waiters were available on hand. A couple of storms hit and you could see personnel drying up the floors and cleaning up leaves and debris from the pool and ponds right after it was over. 2 shows per night were very entertaining, and the activities team kept people busy. We loved it and will definitely return.

Had a great vacation.

The hotel structure and rooms are a bit outdated, could use a little revamping. On the weekend the pool can be a bit too crowed. On the positive side, the food and drinks were above average for an all-inclusive buffet. Food was actually very delicious! The waiters were very attentive and nice. All the staff was very friendly. The hotel is very close to the airport and downtown area.

False Advertisement

The hotel was horrible!! The pictures are from when the hotel was first built 20 years ago. The beach was dirty and had lots of drift wood and plastic items. I would not let my kids play on the beach. The rooms were also dirty, stains on the sheets and just overall yuck! And the staff....RUDE!! In Puerto Vallarta, at the air port there are other resorts who try to get you to take a tour of their resorts with discounts on attractions for listening to their speal. So we decided to take a tour of another resort and the concierge told my husband not to take the kids because the other resort kidnaps children. All lies!! We toured another resort and LOVED it to the point that we worked out a deal with the other resort and stayed the rest of our visit with them. The resort honored our ALL INCLUSIVE package that we already paid for and paid for the taxi ride to the Melia to pick up our luggage and check out and the taxi fare back to their hotel. Good Riddance Melia and I will not recommend you to anyone....ever!

We found a local that took us "Off the beaten path" to the flea markets in downtown Puerto Vallarta where we bought all of our souvenirs much cheaper than if we bought them at a the resort or a shop near the resort. Totally worth the trip.

had a great time

Wife and I came to Melia for our 30th anniv, had a great time. A few cons: Seemed to spend a lot of time waiting every time I needed to talk to front desk. Even though the website says no spring breakers, 14 busses came full of students from some med college the last 2 days we were there. It was pretty rowdy and you couldn't get anywhere near the bar after they arrived, but all things considered, they were fairly well behaved. The staff was friendly and food was pretty good. Overall, I would not hesitate to come again.

Plan your shopping around the criuse ship schedules. It will be less crowded and merchants will deal with you better on the days the ships are not in port.

Not a single good night sleep

The Good: The hotel is very close to the Marina (shopping, restaurants, etc). Poolside waiter (Benjamin) is excellent. Please tip him. The Okay: Breakfast buffet (I always ordered fried eggs and skipped the precooked buffet selection) The Bad: If you are used to cold weather and you like your room cold, this hotel is not for you. I switched rooms 2x due to AC problem. The rooms stayed at approx 79 degrees Fahrenheit which I find uncomfortable specially if the humidity is very high. The rooms were well kept but has strong mildew smell. Perhaps due to lack if air circulation.

Family Paradise

My daughter and grandson had an awesome time at the Melia. The ten-year old participated in almost everything but the kid's club (he was too "cool" for that). The pool is awesome (ocean full of jellyfish unfortunately). My big complaint is that after ten o'clock there is almost nothing for an adult to do. Only one bar (hotel lobby) is open after 6 p.m. and as far as I know it only had a musical combo two of the nights we were there. They need to have a bar out near the beach where adults and kids can have fun late at night. The resort and staff were excellent.

Great experience

The hotel is located 10 minutes far from the airport in the marina area. It is a beach front hotel, you just walk to the beach that is next to the pool area. What really makes this hotel a great experience is the service. Even if it is not the newest hotel in the area and it could have some details better taken care of, people everywhere are extremely dedicated to make you feel good. At the pool area we had not finished our drinks when multiple waiters were checking if we wanted another one. At the restaurants we had the same great service, at the bars they even let you know 15 minutes in advance they are closing so you can order another drink to go. The room was very clean, with excellent ocean views from the 8th floor. We had a problem with the lock at 2am, it won't let us get in the room, but we notified the front desk and in less than 10 minutes they sent someone who opened the door for us and fixed the lock. The king size bed was very good, flat screen TV with cable channels in English and Spanish. Food was not terrific, but it was good. You can make reservations at any of the three restaurants (part of your all inclusive package) or you can eat at the buffet. We has one free massage included that we could take at the pool, at the beach, or at the spa. There was a free city tour included that we enjoyed a lot. Bottom line, we are very satisfied with this hotel and we would recommend it to a friend.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

We purchased airport transportation in advance and paid $70 for it. When we arrived Vallarta we were received by a travel agent who put us in a city cab and paid the driver the flat rate of 65 Mexican pesos which is about $5. There was no special service or added value on this, next time we can do it by ourselves and save money.

Melia Review

The hotel was beautiful with a great ocean view. However upon check-in (and throughout our stay), we were constantly being bugged by the vacation concierge to sit in for a timeshare presentation. Even after multiple "no's", the lady constantly pressured and asked us to sit in for the several hour presentation. At one point, she even said we had to sit in. Also, the vacation concierge were not very helpful in letting you know activities or attractions in Puerto Vallarta once you said no to the timeshares. Other than the constant pressure of time-share, this hotel was good.
