The Punta Cana airport is located 25 km from this resort which can be a fair distance. The orientation of this resort is for couples and to a lesser degree for families. 

The place is really something, besides the fact that it has an astounding variety of 11 restaurants and some breathtaking facilities like: 7 pools, spa, cigar room, golf course, and it is located in the wonderful Bavaro beach which is one of the greatest beaches in the world.


The Melia Caribe Tropical Punta Cana resort has a slightly different layout for the rooms. The rooms are divided into 2 connected areas with king size beds or 2 double beds. The tropical and exquisite style of this suites can accommodate 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children. A well decorated and elegant bathroom made of white marble equipped with a hairdryer is part of this great combination. The place is quite big and it looks very organized, especially with the very cushy wooden chairs. The rooms use a junior suite-style complemented with safe box, ceiling fans, mini bar also a fantastic sofa-bed or couch, a furnished balcony with a wonderful view gives the finishing touch to this suites.

Pool and Beach

If there is one resort that have great pride in their pools I’m sure is this one. Many pools beautifully designed with the tropical theme in mind have a great impact in the Melia Caribe Tropical Punta Cana. The total of pools here is 7, indeed an amazing number and not just that one of them can be considered the largest in Punta Cana. Cleverly crafted fountains are also part of the breathtaking architecture of this lagoons. There is another that is set aside for water sports and particular circumstances.

Of course the kids have a smaller pool for them so they can swim, splash and play all they want. In other words if what you are looking in a resort is the magnificent look of an amazing water body this is the where you want to be.

Like in most resorts in Punta Cana the beach here is absolutely stupendous, the white sand and turquoise waters are always a winner whether you want to swim or practice any water sport.


Like a decent 5 star resort, the Melia Caribe Tropical Punta Cana got about everything, not only it has incredible pools, it provides one of the most stunning variety in menu. This resort can presume of having not one but 2 buffets to choose from as well 9 a la carte restaurants from different nationalities. Japanese, French, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, sea food, grilled, gourmet and even a steakhouse. All this places will require you to wear long pants and shoes for dinner. Also a reservation in the Melia Caribe Tropical Punta Cana will be needed for all a la carte restaurants, be advised that the reservation procedure can be a huge pain sometimes, so be prepared to give a nice tip to persuade them. 

The 2 buffets specialize in the international cuisine which can still be pretty interesting and a good alternative if you don’t want to deal with reservations.


To have fun here you don’t even have to make an effort. With 9 bars all around the complex you can be sure you won’t get thirsty. 2 bars in the pool, 2 bars in the beach, 2 in the lobby, 1 in the Casino and another one in the Capri restaurant. In any place where you can have fun a bar will be near you to ensure you really enjoy your time. This bars will offer a pretty decent list of drinks like champagne.
