ComfortPosted Sep 4, 2014
The Food is not that good. The AC in the room don't work that good. The bars are outside concept so they are very hot. You are always sweating.

Fabulous for our family of 10!!Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: Really, everything. The all-inclusive was so much fun for our big family with no worries about where to eat, how much will it cost, etc.
Cons: More ceiling fans in the restaurants, and maybe enclose the large lobby area so it could be air conditioned.
Location: We opted to just stay at the hotel for 4 days - plenty to do, and the kids were all very happy.
Being September, it was about as hot as it can get in Cabo, but the Melia did a superior job of making our 4 day family vacation as good as it gets. Food was superior, very large buffet-style restaurant right on the ocean front with plenty of selections for all ages in our family. Night time had one restaurant open for reservations, and both the Japanese and Mediterranean were excellent (Japanese not quite as good, tho). Our 3 rooms were all ocean-front and very-well air conditioned, so we could retreat to them when the hot sun just got too hot!! The pool was also very warm, but kept the 4 kids happy all day long, and our 6 adults were happy all day with the swim-up bar and unlimited drinks. The Melia has a very nice, safe beach right in front that was fun for all of us every morning before the pool time started. The sun was just a bit too hot to be on the beach for more than about an hour, no shade at all. Only complaint we might have - more ceiling fans in the restaurants, and they might even close up the lobby area and air condition it, which was wide open to the heat. This was our second time visiting the Melia with our family, and we will definitely go again - just perfect for us. We may go in April/May, tho instead of Labor Day!!

Very friendless staff but not to good foodPosted Aug 31, 2014
Nice view, wonderfull atention all staff are very friendly and very atent w/ the guess only the animation team i think they need to have more motivation... food was not great... Not variety... The buffet restaurant was to hot....They need to improve on the climatitation in that area.. In general I would like to come back to cabos but definitely not to melia cabo real hotel... Just to give a recomendation to melia need to give better food and animation also.

Excellent placePosted Aug 28, 2014
This is an excellent hotel exceeded our expectations. Staff exceeded expectations very accommodating and rooms along with facility very clean. Food comparable to all inclusive resorts that we have stayed. We travel frequently out of country and this was a very nice resort highly recommend it we usually go to different areas and different resorts but we will be returning to this one which is unusual for us. We went in one of the hottest month which did make pool a little warmer than I like but some would love that. Specialty restaurants were excellent food. Drinks better than most resorts. Huge pool. Lots of pluses at this place

Terrible ConsiergePosted Aug 27, 2014
I just returned from a 3 night stay at this resort and the I was very disappointed with our stay. We booked this stay for a bachelorette party. Days before our stay, I asked concierge to set up a special welcome in the bride's room. I was received a confirmation email that this would be done but it was not. Between four of the rooms (there were 13 of us), one room did not have A.C. and the doorknob broke off of the door to another room. I also received a price quote via email from concierge for an ATV excursion. When I went to the activity desk with the email and pricing, they told me that the concierge gave me the wrong price and would not honor the price that was given to me in the email. Concierge also told us we would not need reservations for one of the resort hotels but when we arrived, we were turned away for not having a reservation. Concierge then told us we would not need a reservation to eat at a restaurant outside of the resort because this was not a busy season. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were turned away for not having a reservation. The third time we went to concierge to make a reservation at a resort restaurant, they made us break into a group of 6 and 7. They told us our tables would be next to each other. When we got to the restaurant, the tables were on opposite sides of the room and we had to wait for other tables to leave before they would seat us together.

More Bang for your buck!Posted Aug 13, 2014
Great secluded place, hate guarded, but a 15 min drive to downtown if you want to be in party mode. Staff was always accommodating. Love Jose at the pool bar who makes any drink you need customized. Eduardo who brings fans because he saw you uncomfortably hot, and Anulfo at Palapa who is your personal butler whenever you need anything there! Props to them. Best value for your dinero!

Melia Cabo Real don't owe me NOTHING!!!!!Posted Aug 12, 2014
Everything was Excellent from check in to check out!!!. Diana at the front was great she filled me in on everything I needed to know about the hotel. She even helped me changes rooms, nothing was wrong with my first room I just wanted to be higher up. Diana took care of it with no problem. Raul the bellman was wonder as well he greeted me with a drink and escorted me to my room we talked the whole time. I travel to Mexico alone but the hotel staff made me feel right at home. Dinner at both A la carte restaurants were amazing and the staff as well. The was great for breakfast and some night for dinner. There is something for everyone. I enjoyed the snack bar. After hours when the restaurants and Buffet closed the lobby bar took cheeseburger and quesadilla order til 1am. The hotels ground were beautiful and well-kept. I will definitely be returning. They had a live band the first night in the Theatre room. Most of the guest hung out there dancing at night, drinking and shooting pool. Brazilian night on Thursday was my favorite and Seafood night on Saturday too. I caught the bus safely to the mega and then to the marina for $2 each way with staff direction. Alberto was excellent at the pool bar And Monica the server at lobby bar they kept the drinks following. I'm on IG @iam_dward and I #meliacaboreal on most of my pictures.
