    While I have traveled a lot, I have never made it to an all inclusive resort. Typically, I am an active traveler and a typical vacation would consist of driving all over the Dominican. Since it was our first time there, we decided to give one of the resorts a try and I happily report, we picked a good one. The property is absolutely beautiful. Our room was close to the beach, and this definitely works for us as this is where we spend our time. As far as the room was concerned, very nice, very clean and the bed was comfortable. We took a $40 lesson from Joel (who is AWESOME) and from there, we could take a sail boat out whenever it was available. When it wasn't available, a kayak or paddleboard always was - so we were never bored. There were several cabanas on the beach and since I don't care for sitting in the sun, I much appreciated having access to these. Around the time we were leaving, there were some new ones appearing on the beach. The service throughout the hotel was nothing short of exceptional. I am almost reluctant to mention names, as pretty much everyone I came in contact with was ready to assist in any way possible. This was very appreciated as it makes a tremendous difference when vacationing. The only real issue I encountered was I came with large bills, thinking I could make change for smaller bills. While I have no idea what the hotel pay structure is, the minimum wage in the Dominican Republic comes to approximately $123.90 per month - or $4.00 USD per day. I am not sure how anyone can live on this. I wanted to leave a tip for about everyone I encountered - the service was that good. When I come back, I will make sure I have plenty of small bills - as these employees really do go the extra mile for the guests.

    Beside some of the food, the beach disappointed me. They don't remove the sea weed. They allow boats so close to the shore that the water was murky. I couldn't enjoy the one thing I was looking forward to. The pool is nice. Many areas around the hotel were slippery.

    I was in the resort couple of months ago and now you can experience a better services from the personal, everything is nice and sweet. The beach was very very clean. Thanks to Oliver Bothfeld for your service and Evelin from the bar at Quimera, Juan Jimenez from the pool at Quimera and Genaro. See you soon.

    STAY HERE!

    When reading reviews for resorts anywhere in the world, always remember that not everyones trip is the same so I will try to review things that would pertain to everyone, not just our trip. PROS: Melia Punta Cana is an amazing resort. We cannot stress this enough. The views, the decorations, and the ammenties really make you feel like youre at a five star resort and frankly, boujee. You can see it for yourself in the pics online. They really look like the pics, and all the furniture, etc really is clean and nice. The employees are exceptional. Now lets be real, of course you will run into one or two that may not give you the biggest smile and best attention, but you cant forget that theyre all human beings with their own lives and anyone and everyone can have their days. 99% of the employees at Melia Punta Cana go above and beyond to give you the best stay ever. Theyre so happy and funny, they really make you feel great and treat you like family. Shoutout to/ Muchisimas Gracias a: Juan Vasquez Adriana (Senora que da bebidas de bienvenida y trabaja en el bar a la par de recepcion) Esthela Rincon Ana (limpiadora de cuartos #1611/1612, a la par de la playa y piscina) por su carino y trabajo duro. next for the pros would be the dining. some food lacked some flavor, but I would say 90% of everything was great and was approved by my hispanic grandma (the worlds pickiest eaters) the restarants were beautiful and luckily, the resort accounts with many different places to go eat so you can switch it up a bit. Entertainment is great, really cool stuff like foam parties, silent discos, circus, dancing, etc. You just have to pay attention to the screen monitors everywhere. CONS: Its really big! this can be something very good because you have some space to breath and feel like youre staying in a small town, rather than a cramped hotel, but something that they can fix is the transportation around the resort. They need more because 90% of the rooms are not beach front which means that you will most likely have to take a train (like the kid trains that go through a mall lol) or wait for someone to come around in a golf cart to get to the beach, or anywhere really. Unless youre able to buy Premium beachside rooms. Sometimes the wait times were long which sucked, but they did have cool "train stations" you can wait at. more people to drive around carts would certainly fix this. Its not horrible tho, just a small bother. Food is a little bit repetitive. Its good, just repetitive. they did try to switch it up a bit so you have to recoginze that, so really its not that bad. Flies on a lot of uncovered food. Not everything is like that dont worry, but somethings like bread, always had swarms of flies and that sucked. The hotel could fix this easily by covering the bread. Theyre kinda confusing about the whole "The Level/ Melia Punta Cana Beach/ Melia Caribe Beach" ITS ALL THE SAME THING. The level is just the VIP area, and Caribe beach is the family section of the resort (avoid this one if youre not travelling with kids because its nosier and more people.) Its all the same and counts with the same amenities and look. OVERALL: book this place if its available. its really nice. boujee aesthetic, helpful and wonderful people, and just a great experience. We loved it!! Thank you to everyone at Melia Punta Cana. We cannot wait to go back.
