Melia - Our Opinion

Unlike many operators we not only visit all the hotels we offer regularly, but we also stay in them. Please find a few hints, tips and opinions from our staff plus some genuine feedback from our clients below:


There is no doubt that Melia is a very high-quality hotel. It is finished to an extremely high standard and the décor is modern and tasteful. However, personally I felt it just lacked a little soul and sometimes detracted from the beautiful surroundings.
Whilst there are regular mini buses to Melia’s dedicated area of beach, the lack of immediate access can be a factor to consider.
