We enjoyed out stay but having been there before just didnt think it was good as the first time. Mainly we thought the buffet food & restaurant were not nearly as good and although there was a good choice it certainly didnt have as much as before and I didnt rate the quality of the meat/fish etc.. Breakfast was better. They were in the middle of doing some repairs the building had suffered some storm damage but we had upgraded to The Level so had a lovely clean & comfortable room with access to the private pool area for couples only. Staff were very helpful but when we cancelled having the evening meal for the last few nights so we could eat out no one asked us why.

Returned a year after first visit. Hotel is getting a little tired but the service is second to none. Buildings can be fixed and there was a little renovation being done but no noise to speak of. The service is down to the staff however and nothing was too much trouble and any issues were dealt with instantly. Can't rate this place highly enough even though it might struggle to be 5 star, it is a very good 4stsr.

If 3.5 were available this hotel would score that as "GOOD". By modern day standards this is not a 5 star hotel in all that it offers.The grounds are very picturesque the nocturnal chorus a surprise , the area is spotless.The welcome at check in would be better shortened when after a four hour plane journey into extreme heat all we really wanted to do was relax.The external building is showing it's age with work taking place during our visit , the Level swimming pool area is user friendly and the bar area moreso.Sitting around the Level pool it's easy to become cut off from the rest of the hotel,which is probably the desire of many, it would however be beneficial , I believe , if the Level area staff were to mingle once a day just to say "hello".The evening "entertainment" was safe and uninspiring so much so that one evening we ventured along to the Spanish version of "The Cube", the Level lounge, only to find an incomplete deck of cards,an incomplete chess set and 2 backgammon sets.Perhaps this area could reconsider it's offerings maybe even stretching to coffee in the evening.The bedroom was nice,had a great outlook and kept immaculate.The turn down service got earlier every day though (5.30 pm ?) which was a tad early.The food was better on some nights than others , the breakfasts plentiful. Our biggest let down was that we had chosen this Melia hotel to celebrate a notable anniversary , had relayed this fact, confirmed this fact and had been told that they would acknowledge the event.Nothing happened.I pre-booked a bali bed to mark the event. Nothing was recorded. We have stayed at other hotels in this chain but I just did not get the same corporate feel from this one.The final interaction was a big question mark.On the penultimate night I asked to check our invoice as I had some Euro notes I was going to pay part of the bill with.I was given a print out , paid over what I thought was 600 euros and given a receipt. It was not until twenty minutes later when I went to put the receipt in the room safe that I noticed the money had been credited to a different room.I returned to the desk pointed out the error, only to be told that I had in fact only given 500 euros.I questioned this but with no cctv evident , although I had given the money which was counted and credited as 600 euros (albeit to the wrong room) 500 was now being shown to me.
