    My husband and I chose this resort as our honeymoon destination. Within the first hour of being there we noticed they only had sketchy Dominican alcohol. Nothing normal such as Corona or bud light. You were either going to drink El Presidente on draft or a mixed drink with bottom shelf liquor. The food options were terrible. I have a gluten and lactose allergy. I couldn’t find ANHTHING that stated if food items contained these ingredients and when I asked if they had an idea about the allergy they looked at me confused and said “no idea” and walked away. My husband ended up puking two separate nights. (No we he wasn’t drunk, as we’re not huge drinkers). He stopped drinking any alcohol the last two days and had no sick episodes. We blame his sickness on the sketchy drinks. There is one bar out between the pool and the beach so if you’re hanging out on the beach, be prepared for a trek just to get one drink. No only that but they put all drinks in plastic white cups, which in turn, the alcohol ate through the cups causing it to leak. When you stay here you have access to both resorts on the property. One being an adults only and the other being one for everyone. The worker said use golf carts to move you from your room, to the front desk, to the beach, etc but throw a FIT when they have to drive you to one resort and not the other. So what’s the point of having access to both when you can’t even get a ride to it??? It’s a 45 minute walk! To top it off, the travel advisor in charge of our trip at the resort lost our information for the ride back to the airport in the morning. We had to call an emergency number to get it scheduled. This place was terrible and we couldn’t wait to leave.

    I had my destination wedding at Melia and it could not have been an easier process. Roselis our wedding planner had all the detailed planned out and made it very easy and stress free. We had a perfect day and the venue right on the beach was beautiful and not crowded by strangers. Everything turned out better than expected. Our "butler" Franklin way always available in a time of need and made sure we felt at home. We really enjoyed the dinners as well. The Italian restaurant was our favorite. Overall it was a beautiful resort and I would definitely return.

    My husband and I got married in Punta Cana in May and we had a group of over 50 guests who stayed at this resort with us. The resort is beautiful, the staff was great, and the food was okay/good. My only gripe would be having to eat similar things all week for breakfast and lunch, but there were plenty of dinner options. It was my third time visiting Punta Cana, my second time staying at Melia, we can't wait to return for an anniversary.

    I just finished my survey about the Melia Caribe Beach so not inclined to write any additional information. It will be one of the worst vacations you have based on presentation, service, cleanliness, activities and overall experience. Just a terrible experience.

    Staff was amazing. They had plenty of activities for you to do including making mamajuana, zumba, and water aerobics. The resort was beautiful and big. Loved the transportation from the hotel to the restaurants and lobby. Only downfall, breakfast and lunch were the same everyday a buffet, with only a few change in selections. My main complaint was everyone trying to sell you stuff on the beach. I visited turks and caicos and the cayman islands in the past 6 months and I did not encounter this problem. They would not leave you alone about buying jewelry or braiding your hair. Disappointing I couldn’t fully relax on the beach
