Favorite place to eat on property and what do you recommend there?
As part of our all-inclusive package you can take advantage of dozens of restaurants including buffet style or ala carte dining. From Asian to Italian, steakhouse to local Dominican fare, there are endless options for places to try each day of your trip. Some of our favorite places to eat were Domenica, Casa Nostra, Mina and The Winery. At any time on property you can grab a drink at one of the many bars and I recommend letting the bartender make you something of their choice – anytime they made something for us it was delicious and so refreshing!
The Winery was my favorite since you are surrounded by wine bottles, in a very dimly lit, small restaurant that is by reservation only. The staff will provide all the food and pairings and you simply have to purchase your bottle of wine. They will bring out delicious apps and dishes that complement the wine perfectly, and also teach you about wine along the wine. I loved how intimate the setting was and great for a romantic dinner.
TIP: A great feature about staying at this all-inclusive resort is that at any time you can order room service to your room and every item on the menu is included in your all-inclusive fee - so if you want to order a quick breakfast, bottle of wine, or late night snack it's just a call or mobile order away.
Speaking of mobile ordering, another great feature at the Club Melia properties is the Melia mobile app. Upon arriving you can download the app and everything you need is a click away; room service ordering, a schedule of activities, ability to make reservations and more. I absolutely loved using the app during my stay to order room service from the comfort of my bed.
Who is this resort/destination best suited for? (Family friendly, for couples, friends/group trip etc.)
This resort is great for the entire family! With the Kids & Co. kids’ area, as well as the large waterparks on site, the kids will have a great time and have more than enough activities to keep them busy! For couples this can be a very relaxing and romantic trip as well since you can enjoy couples massages and treatments at the YHI spa, enjoy candlelit dinners at various restaurants, visit the casino for some night time fun or relax in your room with room-serve or request a special bath turn down service where the staff will set up your bath with champagne, aromatherapy oils and candles.
