Positive Reviews

Wonderful gastronomic experience is guaranteed

A lot of guests could not help but praise the food offered at the hotel. The items had good smells, which was a sign of them being fresh. The dishes were creatively presented. Moreover, the restaurants all had their unique atmospheres, which allowed the guests to enjoy a different vibe each time they dine.

High standard of cleanliness

The guests could not find fault in the hotel's cleanliness wherever they go. They were very glad seeing the hardworking staff clean the public areas and rooms each day. Fresh and good-smelling towels are given daily. Furthermore, even the keen observers were impressed.

A piece of paradise in Santa Maria

Meliá Dunas Beach Resort's guests had what they wanted—an unforgettable vacation. The sight of the sea is refreshing. Add to that the presence of the amazing pool surrounded by stylish loungers and lush bushes. Some travelers even extended their stay for weeks because of the tranquil surroundings.

Negative Reviews

Water pressure is unstable at times

The water pressure was sometimes strong, but sometimes it was very weak. Guests had to take baths longer than they usually do because of it. Moreover, there were also times when the water became a bit brown or orange. However, if the technician cannot sort things out quickly, guests can ask for a room transfer.

Not enough staff members at front desk

During peak seasons, guests had to line up at the front desk because there were only at least two persons processing the check-in. However, the guests saw that these employees work hard and fast. The smiles did not wear off their faces too.

Troubles with the shuttle service

Some guests were a bit bothered by the shuttle mainly because there was no air conditioner. However, the seats are cosy.
