The Gran Melia Golf Resort Puerto Rico in Rio Grande is an award-winning property that allows its visitors to relax in tropical luxury. The hotel has won a Five Star Diamond Award, a Golden Apple Award, and a Gold Key Award, among other recognitions, and it's established a strong reputation over 50 years.

 

The villas and suites match perfectly with the island surroundings, and they're decorated with mahogany furnishings, Spanish accents and bold colors. The pool is welcoming and expansive, allowing people to play or lounge in the sun while enjoying great views of the ocean and lush vegetation.

Rooms

Each garden view suite, decorated with modern mahogany furniture, features a king size or two double-size beds, a living area with sofa bed, private terrace or balcony, full marble bathroom with vanity mirror and bath amenities, air conditioning, cable television with pay-per-view channels, high-speed Internet access (fees apply), hair dryer, iron and ironing board, coffeemaker, and safety deposit box. Red Level suites offer additional amenities such as daily full breakfast, private lounge for check-in, personal butler, exclusive junior suites, and priority dining.

Property features

The hotel offers a lagoon-style swimming pool, children's pool, and an adults-only swimming pool on the property. Guests also enjoy a vast selection of non-motorized water sports, including ocean kayaking, windsurfing, and sailing. The 12,000-square-foot spa, Sol Melias, provides massages, facials, and polishes, and guests also enjoy the fully equipped health club and three tennis courts.

Minutes away are two 18-hole championship golf courses, designed by PGA tour professional Tom Kite. Gran Melia guest privileges include special green fees prices, preferred tee times, private lessons, and guest club storage.

Restaurant selections range from local Caribbean cuisine to Italian, Asian, and a steakhouse. The resort also offers five bars.

Highlights

Situated on a peninsula, this sprawling property is located just 30 minutes from the airport and greater San Juan. Two 18-hole championship courses are located adjacent to the hotel, and guests can take advantage of discounted greens fees, tee times and club storage. The RedGlove Concierge Services can help people arrange day trips and adventures, such as snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, shopping, Old San Juan tours and horseback riding.

 

After active days, visitors can dine in three elegant restaurants that feature Asian, Mediterranean and Puerto Rican cuisines or enjoy quick bites at the two casual establishments on the property. For drinks, the Avenue Bar and Martini Bar provide a great place to sip creative cocktails.

Gran Melia Puerto Rico

The Gran Melia was more than I ever dreamed or hope. The resort is stunningly beautiful and the service can't be beat. The entire staff treats you like royalty and go out of their way to serve and delight. The friendliest, cleanest most fun place to vacation. The suite was exquisite. I highly recommend it and plan to visit again.

Perfect Relaxing Getaway

It was everything I was looking for in a relaxing getaway. They had everything you needed to get away from the hotel also i.e. car rental, taxi, excursions with transportation. I got to see the best parts of the island with the tours that they set up for me. Gave me great directions to everything I wanted to see when I rented a car. The pool was incredible.

Gran Melia Puerto Rico

First impressions are the most important. Upon arriving, I waited on line for approximately one hour before reaching the desk, due to shortage of staff. Upon reaching the desk, at 5:30 p.m., I was informed that my junior suite was not ready, and would not be ready for approximately one more hour. Additionally, I was charged for incidentals a deposit of $100 before I was even informed they were going to do this. Parking was not free, as I had to pay $16 daily for the entire stay. Furthermore, the fact that I paid for parking, did not guarantee me a spot, as I had to drive several times around their small lot before squeezing into a spot. Aside from the above, I was able to rest and enjoyed each and every sunny day, which I was fortunate to have. The pool was amazing, as was the pool side bar. The surrounding grounds had breath-taking views of the ocean. I loved all the palm trees. My king-size bed was very comfortable and my room was refreshed daily. From the few meals I did have at the hotel, I enjoyed them very much.

Relaxation trip!

The resort was beautiful and clean. It has 3 swimming pools, two of which you would need to have red level access and/or spa access. The food and buffet were a bit pricey. There were no servers readily available at the pool area although there was a swim up bar. As far the beach, it was full of rocks and uncomfortable to walk on. The ocean water itself was very warm and clean. I've traveled many places and never have seen the ocean floor covered with grass at the point of entry. Good place to snorkel. Gran Melia had plenty of lounge chairs and a few hammocks to relax in. The resort is extremely large and the bellmans roll around giving ppl rides to the pool area and other locations.

I would suggest purchasing a travel voucher when you book your flight. I enjoyed the travel from the airport to the hotel. The hotel is approx 30 mins from the resort.

Lover's and families

This is a beautiful property. I would say it is a great place to bring a lover or the family. I saw plenty of children too teens and there were activities for them to be entertained. The food prices may want you to go elsewhere for say a 5.00 dollar hamburger, instead of a 8.50 hot dog on premise. However the resort does not have a shuttle service to accommodate guests who do not prefer to drive in strange areas. Rental cars are available on the property. If you want to see the town and go retailing or sight seeing, I would say best for you to stay in San Juan if you plan to so a lot of that. If staying at a clean classy hotel this is a great forerunner if you just want to kick it and relax. The beach is a bit rocky and the ocean floor is not cleared out in front of the Hotel so it is not that great for just hanging out in the ocean without stubbing your toe or stepping on sea weed like reefs. but the Pool is nice and the spa is great.

Strip clubs are fun and accommodating, bars are open for ever.The cab ride to town is 75.00 one way, or renting a car and risking whatever at 90.00 a day. the shuttle from the airport is 30.00 one way.I would like to see a shuttle that leaves every 2 hours or something like that for a 30 dollar round trip.

Beautiful but in trouble?

This is such a beautiful place. The gardens, waterfalls, columns, and plants are just spectacular. The beach is very natural and there are a lot of rocks and coral that make swimming challenging - bring water shoes. The hotel was not busy, rooms are being discounted; this place was much better when it was all inclusive. As an example, there are these Bali Beds around the pool. You have to rent them for $50 a day. None were ever rented. This doesn't seem like a management that knows their market. The staff was very nice but it seems like they have had a lot of turnover. I just wonder if it will be able to survive financially in the market it is trying to serve.

Great place, BUT...

The hotel charges a parking fee which is $32 and they also hold a $100 deposit per night to your card, [...] Other than that, it's a spectacular place to be!
