No travel off the resort grounds is necessary. If you want a getaway where a full range of entertainment is provided on site(casino, high end shops,beaches, water theme park, fine dining etc), this is the place. However, to get the true Bahamian experience, you will need to go into Nassau proper and visit restaurants and shops where the locals go, visit the sites with historical significance--or if you are fortunate enough to be there during the Christmas/New Year period--go to the Junkanoo Parade. Authentic, and fabulous traditional food can be found at the Fish Fry or at Potters Cay and is worth the short trip from PI.

Every day we tried a new pool because they each have their own atmosphere. The slides and rapid river are awesome! There is so much to see, we discovered new lagoons and sights every day. Virgils restaurant was amazing! The spa was beautiful too. The resort is extremely large so there is a lot of walking.

The hotel was clean and family friendly. Staffs were very polite and helped me out with ideas about places to see. Food was very good and they had healthy options for people like me. Fresh fruits and desserts were served every meals. The beach was also clean and It was safe even in the evening. The only room of improvement will be with housekeeping as I felt that some of them were rushing. I only had one bad incident when the person who cleaned my room did kinda rushed and done half of a good job. Other than that, I really had a good time staying at Melia and the DJ was planning nice music. This hotel is good for young adults without kids who just want to have a good time during personal holiday and Also good for family with children. I will definitely stay at Melia again for my next trip to Bahamas.
