Horrible Choice!

Based on the reviews and pics we chose the Gran Melia for our family vacation. What a mistake. Upon arriving, we were very happy with the entrance to the hotel - beautiful and very posh looking. The hotel is set up like an apartment complex. You have to walk a great distance or ride in a driven golf cart to get ANYWHERE. When I say apartment complex I mean more Than just the buildings. People were literally parked out on their patios with radios, smoking and loudly talking all over the place. Not very relaxing. Our room was RUN DOWN. The couch, floor and walls were stained. I did not want to sit down ANYWHERE. I tried to overlook it and we decided to look at the beautiful pool we saw in the pictures. It looked completely different. First of all, it was shoulder to shoulder with people- kids, couples making out. Empty plastic cups floated in the few spots where there was no people. The walls of the pool were broken and cracked. Everything looked like a bad version of the pictures we saw. We hoped the beach would make up for everything else. Nope. It was small. I mean only 20-30 feet long and full of jagged rocks and garbage. We complained to management and they said they would upgrade our room but there was only one room left. It was not much better than the first one. We ended up staying at the Ritz Carlton for the week and were beyond happy with the hotel. The Gran Melia was the biggest disappointment ever. Please heed my warning on this. I wish I would've known beforehand.

"Beware, Paradise"

The balcony door had a sign "Beware, Paradise" and it is indeed a paradise. The resort is pretty huge with lots of open air space, beautiful architecture, and a long strip of beach. My favorite is the length of the beach and the fact you can have private beach space and never feel crowded together. Rooms are very spacious and personnel is very friendly. Cleaning staff is very annoying and loud, knocking on doors starting 9am, but everything else was great. Will definitely visit again.

Good Vacay

We wanted to experience the island but everything was booked....no car rentals, no nothing. Everything should be planned in advance. Nice relaxing time which was why we were there.

I would definitely go back!

This hotel was amazing! We had a great time and would definitely recommend it to others. The only complaint I had was that the restaurants in the hotel were very expensive, but they do offer happy hours with discounts at certain times of day. It was very scenic, and secluded on its own peninsula, which was right on the coast line. The staff was very friendly as well, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

No worth the money

The room was beautiful but the staff needs improvement. Maid kept leaving dirty glasses in the room, not refilling soaps or emptying the ice bucket, etc...didn't change sheets daily as we were told they would. The food was over priced for the portion and taste. I will not be going back there.

Trip to PR

The amenities were Ok, nothing special. I usually stay at the Wydham but wanted to check out another place since we were going to a weeding near that area and the stay was disappointing. The sofa was stained, floor needed sweeping, the balcony was dirty and the bathroom could use scrubbing. They did not have a whirlpool or hot Jacuzzi in the pool area, only in the spa indoors. The beach area was not very good either, the chairs need upgrading. Overall I would not go back.

Beautiful Hotel

We had a very relaxing stay at this beautiful resort. Couldn't use the beach or pool due to rain, so that was a bit of a disappointment. Staff was helpful in directing us to local places of interest. My one recommendation would be to give out better directions to the resort from the airport. The website was lacking in this regards and we got terribly lost trying to initially find it.

Honeymoon Destination

The hotel itself is beautiful. Our room was very spacious and clean. However, I was not very impressed with the customer service and all of the hidden charges. For example, we called several local places for dinner reservations, zip lining, and kayaking. You were charged $2.00 per phone call. Also, no free WIFI, and if you rent a car, you will be charged $15.00 per day for parking at the resort. I have traveled a lot and have never seen this amount of additional charges before. Besides that, the place was very nice with beautiful views, pool, and landscaping.

Pricey place

Be prepared to spend some money there. Breakfast alone is $22 a person. It's far from any attractions and you need to rent a car for a day if you want to leave the resort that's another $90. $500 deposit when you get there for a room security.
