Great Resort Stay for Couples

We had a great time at Gran Melia. The facilty is beautiful. The staff was great and very helpful. THe red level service was definitely worth the upgrade. However, don't excpect beach swimming. It sits on a coral reef.

Not Very Exciting

This is a place for Golfers only. No other attractions or events for entertainment. You must rent a vehicle, otherwise you will pay an arm and leg for food on the grounds.

Great resort

Fantastic location, great pool, superior rooms,.. Worth booking red level service incl. many benefits e.g. the little pavilions at the pool at no extra costs. Food is very expensive, so rent a car to be able to go for fast food :-)

Weekend in Paradise

We met up in San Juan with son & daughter-in-law to celebrate her birthday. The meal in the restaurant was awesome. When they brought out the desserts the waiters came out clapping, singing, and banging on instruments. She loved it. The breakfast buffet has a huge selection. The beach isn't the greatest for laying out but the pool is enormous & it was so refreshing laying on the built-in lounge chairs in the water. It was fun walking the grounds & looking at all the beautiful plants and watching the iguanas. I only wish that we hadn't walked the beach at night because I got bitten up by sand flies on our last night.

Honeymoon

My husband and I went here the day after our wedding thinking it was just a nice hotel. The serene atmosphere and amazing staff made our trip better than we could have ever hoped for. The food at the restaurants were amazing, everything was clean and comfortable, and there was so much to do. It was about a 30 minute drive which went quickly and got us away from the busy city so that we could relax and enjoy the beauty of Puerto Rico.

Not a great experience

The facility seemed kept, but there the pool needs maintenance (painting...) as well as the rooms. We moved to 3 different rooms, two of the were not well kept.. The was a strong moldy smell on the 2nd one and the 3rd. one had a toilet that didn't work. LOCATION: The food is extremely expensive $$$ and there is NOTHING around, except an impoverished city, where not many would not want to eat. Driving all the way to san Juan is about 40-45 mins. depending on traffic. The restaurants at the hotel are nice, but expensive, about $23/pp for a breakfast buffet.

Couple getaway

I was very pleased with the hotel. It was a lovely experience. The staff was very polite. The resort was fabulous. Everything about the resort was good. Just be ready to spend money for food. If you can rent a car, please do so because the food is much cheaper off the resort. Yes, I would go back. EXCELLENT RESORT!!!

Gorgeous Aesthetics - Poor Overall Value

Overall, my fiance and I enjoyed our stay at the Gran Melia. The grounds are gorgeous, the pools are well-maintained, and the entire resort offers an abundance of breathtaking views. Aesthetics aside, we were displeased with a few things. The Gran Melia requires a "security deposit" of $100/night for any damages that could happen in the room during your stay. That's A LOT. While the Red Level upgrade is worth it for the "complimentary" breakfast buffet, they are not shy about reminding you to give at least a 15% tip for being served coffee and water. (breakfast would be $22 without red level, so they suggest tips of 15%, 18% and 20% for what the cost of your meal WOULD HAVE been.) They charge about $17/day for parking. They really want you to spend all your money at the resort, so they don't allow coolers on the property, or food/beverages from outside resources. Put leftovers or booze in a backpack. Basically, they try to stiff you out of $$$ in all ways possible. If you want a Bali Bed at the "red level" pool, reserve it a day ahead of time. They will kick you off of it if it is reserved for someone else, even if they never show up. The beach is pretty, but very rocky and full of seaweed. To save money, we ate at the Taco Bus located just outside the resort. $12 for 2 people, can't complain.

There is a bakery and a Taco Bus located just at the entrance of the resort. Right when you turn onto PR-187 (I think). Eat here for lunch/dinner, if you want to save money.

Relaxing at its best

This hotel locations is away from any tourist spots about 30mins from the airport. Once you get there it feels and looks like paradise. The staff is friendly and the rooms are spacious. The pool is by far the largest pool I ever seen. The beach is really not for swimming it is very rocky at the bottom(beware). I recommend a rental car because eating at the hotel can get expensive...$22.00 a day/person. Overall if your looking to relax this is the place. The grounds are large
