TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

I really wanted to like this place and am saddened that it did not meet my expectations. The hotel grounds are stunning yet the pool area is in disrepair. Pool needs to be repainted/glazed; there are sections around the fountains and other decorative feautures that are crumbling. There is a hot tub area in the center of the pool that was a disgrace...cracked crumbling edges, no jets functioning.The location was excellent in terms of proximity to El Yunque and the Biobay yet the beach area was terrible....there is no sand beach to speak of. Why wouldn't Melia invest dollars , big dollars, to improve the beach or maintain the pool? We had 2 rooms; one was fine the other was horrible. The one room smelled horrible; we weren't sure at first what it was. We called the front desk and they sent someone to air it out and spray air freshener but when we returned to that room later the smell also returned. Upon closer inspection we realized that there were 2 chairs in the room with disgusting stains and mold spots on them. Went down to front desk and showed pictures of the chairs and was assured that the room would receive a "deep cleaning". When we returned to the room the chairs were still there, still with the same stains and spots. The room still smelled; it was asphyxiating. How is this supposed to be a five star hotel? We visit Puerto Rico once a year every year and have stayed in many different kinds of places from B&B to motels to Paradores and this was by far the worst (and most expensive).

We just returned from a stay at the Gran Melia Golf Resort from April 19-23rd. Let me begin with saying that we were with a large group (over 500 people) as an incentive trip. We have also been to all inclusives in Mexico (Iberostar Grand Paraiso, Secrets Playa Mujeres and Excellence Playa Mujeres) and excited about visiting this resort and Puerto Rico. I am giving this resort an average rating. Let me begin with the rooms. They were not anything great. It is just an oversized hotel room (doesn't really give you the resort/luxury feel I have had other places). You do not get snacks or liquor bottles in your room. You also do not get a robe or slippers to wear during your stay. There is also nothing special about the bathroom. Housekeeping is also subpar. Our wash cloths were not replenished after the first day, and you also do not get a turn down service at night. The shower was very worn down as well. I think if they renovated the rooms it would make that aspect of the resort nice. Atmosphere: The outdoor parts of the resort are beautiful! We loved walking through to the pool and on the beach. It was so peaceful. The lobby/main area is really nice too. It gives you a Hawaii feel. Food/wait staff So this resort has different color bands for what would be included in your food and drinks packages to make it "all inclusive". I will say this was one of my biggest complaints. You didn't know what was included, certain liquor wasn't included, and bars that were suppose to be all included would randomly charge for drinks even if you had a band. Every day the pool bar had ran out of something. The bartenders at the pool bar were not very friendly and seemed miserable doing their job. Since we were with a group there were planned breakfast, lunch, and dinners. We ate twice at the restaurant that is right off the pool and the food both times took FOREVER! It also took forever to get someone to wait on you. The only restaurant we ate dinner at was the hibachi restaurant. The food was your typical resort hibachi. Everyone ordered hibachi and some ordered sushi. Here is where the "all inclusive" is tricky. You get an app, dinner entree (if a menu item had a ** next to it then it was an up charge) and desert. Also, if wanted sushi as an appetizer you either had to pay for the roll or make it your meal. The restaurant was really busy and it took us 2 hours from beginning to end. We didn't get our sushi until after the hibachi dinners were served and eaten. They also ran out of the spider roll. We also didn't get our drinks until about an hour after we were sitting at the table. I did feel bad for our waiter because you could tell he was very flustered. If you have been to an all inclusive type resort before do not expect wait staff walking around the pool to take and serve drinks or food. They also do not have an entertainment staff or shows at night. The last night there was music in the lobby bar. I think the lobby bar closes at midnight. There are guys that drive around on golf carts and they ask if you want a ride. Where this resort is lacking in some areas it gains in others like the scenery. Again, it isn't the worst that there is out there, but it is not the best either. It is just average.

Could write a book on all the thinks that went wrong, but will touch on the important parts. Barf on drapes in the room. Had to be switched to a different room. First thing we see when walking into the room is a giant barf spot on the drapes. Room furnishings are VERY outdated and really worn out. Would not even sit on the couch as it looked like it had been sitting on a front porch for years. Filthy and all broken down. Covered it with a towel. Pool restaurant runs out of food around 3pm. Bars commonly run out of supplies at random times. Too lazy to restock. Staff in genereal care less about being efficient. 90% of the staff act like you are bothering them instead of them being there to work. Bartenders are the worst. Slowest on the planet. Rules constantly changed. What food is allowed on the inclusive plan, which restaurants would be open etc. one night they bartender announced the inclusive beverage plan is no longer being honored for the rest of the night. This was at the main bet at 9pm. A riot almost broke out and there were many very irate guests. food is nothing special. Pretty boring and not always available. There are times of the day where room service may be your only food choice. And you pay for it. Beach is rocky and pretty non existent. Water is full of sea grass and actually closed for any swimming. Was at this place for days and saw a total of 3 full on screaming fights between hotel staff and customers because of the poor service, rule changes, and people tired of the crappy service My trip was paid for by another party so this was tolerable and comical as I drank enough to deal with it. However, if I had paid for this I would have been Livid.

The last time I stayed at this Grand Melia was 8-9 years ago. The experience then, while not bad, was not great either. Since then, we've decided to stay at other properties for subsequent visits to Puerto Rico. We planned a last minute spring break getaway to Puerto Rico for the first week of April 2017, and we made hotel arrangements the day before beginning our vacation. The Grand Melia caught my attention because it was priced considerably cheaper than pretty much any other hotel in the area (it was priced cheaper than budget hotels in the San Juan area!) so I went ahead and booked it. The grounds leading to the resort are pleasant, with views of the golf course and countryside. This is a low rise hotel (2 stories), so upon arrival there's not much to see, but open entering, the facilities in the lobby area are in good shape and pleasant. They haven't changed much since our last visit. However, the pool area could use a bit of TLC, Some things are in bad need of repair (broken tiles, a broken shower head laying on the floor of one of the pool showers, an underwater light missing and a cable dangling freely in the water, broken loungers, etc), The room was nice, just as the last time we had stayed here. This property used to be a Paradisus All Inclusive Resort, so the Melia inherited these awesome rooms. They are huge, with marble accents, and nice bathrooms. But the soft furnishings could use an upgrade. The sofa looked faded and worn and so did the sheets. Next topic is service and attention to detail, and this is where this Melia goes from pretty nice, to below average. The last time that I had been here, the check in process took forever (more than an hour). They couldn't find our reservation. Once they finally did, it took more than 2 hours before our bags made it to the room. Well, this time, we showed up at the front desk only to learn that, once again, they couldn't find our reservation. The check in clerk looked dumbfounded, even when I showed her the email with the confirmation number. She called the manager who looked just as dumbfounded. But after a few minutes, they got things squared away and we proceeded to our rooms. Golf cart service (this is a spread out property, so golf carts are used to move people from one place to another) has improved since last time. It seemed like they are more numerous and frequent. Housekeeping was noticeably poor and in tune with our last visit as well. On that previous occasion, the housekeeping staff was spread so thin that they couldn't even get to our room until 5pm, so we declined service more than once. This time we walked into the room after spending the entire day sightseeing, happy to see that we had received housekeeping services, but disappointed that it had not been done very well. We had fresh towels but they were haphazardly thrown by the bathroom sink. The bed had been made, but had sheets untucked and half dangling to the floor on one side. The ironing board that we'd left open in the middle of the room was still open in the same exact position. The trash hadn't been taken out. Part of me wanted to see the bright side and be thankful for at least getting some sort of service, but then part of me said that this level of service was unacceptable, specially for a "luxury resort". Overall, I believe that the big problem that this property faces is a lack of staff as well as improper training. From the moment that we checked in, we were hard pressed to find employees who didn't look overworked, Professional greetings or smiles were scarce. Many seemed to be doing the bare minimum to keep the guests content. Several seemed more interested in shooting the breeze and laugh with their coworker friends than to take care of the guests. I'm guessing that the maintenance department is also understaffed or underfunded based on the minor maintenance issues scattered throughout the property which, although minor, when added, amount to a bigger underlying issue. We left the resort on the last day feeling that we enjoyed our stay, but not as much as we should've. We also left feeling that we wont be coming back, even if the prices are considerably cheaper than other properties. This Melia is a beautiful property and it has great potential to truly shine if management addresses the basic issues with the staff and upkeep that I outlined above. Unfortunately, since the same issues that we encountered 9 years ago are still present today, something tells me that there isn't much interest to change.

I have to tell you this has been one of the worst resort experiences I have ever had. This trip was an incentive from our business and billed as an inclusive luxury resort. Well it was anything but luxury and definitely not inclusive. The service at this hotel was horrible. We were supposed to be in the "red level" which I understood to be the upgraded concierge type of accommodation. When we arrived they told us we had Butler service, sounds nice right, well we never found it or saw the butler? Everything we asked for we were told was an additional charge or not available. The hotel needs updating and the food was of minimal portions. The beach is awful all rocks and your not able to even go in the ocean and the sand is more like dirt. I didn't have a choice in booking this resort but if you do don't stay here. I could go on and on about the service here but just know it's horrible and spend your money elsewhere.
