Melia Caribe Tropical: Q&A Related specifically to this hotel

Recommended Posts

Updated with 2009 info:

 

What type of wedding packages do they have?

 

Based on 2009 information I got from the coordinator they offer 3 types:

 

* Free Symbollic - if you stay in the Royal Suites Section and have less than 12 guests

* Tides - includes semi-private reception for up to 24 guests - ~$1296 US

* Tropical Fairy Tale - includes private reception for up to 24 guests ~1728 US

 

These prices are without the extra's (Horse & Carriage, Trio, beach dance floor, extra people, etc.).

 

How do you book?

 

Nonrefundable deposit is 35% of the package you choose due when you request your date, ceremony type and location sent via wire transfer or cheque to name specified in the Celebrations PDF. Also there are two forms to be completed (one in excel with wedding details and the other is the official contract between you and the resort).

 

PM me if you want the full details. I can send you the PDF with the full details for 2009 Packages.

Princess: We have 19 booked and are expecting at least 10 more (hopefully). My TA warned me, however, that some will book closer to the date or travel or even last minute! I'll send you some info if you want me to but also check out Shellb's thread...lots of info on there as well!

Shelb, I don't know how I missed your Melia Q&A thread!

Sorry, I feel dumb now for starting another one! doh.gif

 

Great info though all around! Nice to have the updated packages posted... I think I saw these posted on the melia cocktail hour thread as well.

I know that the Melia is pretty big resort and that some of the rooms are close to the beach pools, and then some of the rooms are set back close to the lobby and restaurants. I know there is at least one buffet restaurant in the section close to the beach. Are any of the a la cartes on the beach, or are they all towards the back of the resort? Also, I read a couple of reviews on trip advisor that said a downside of having rooms in the area close to the beach is that after dinner there are no restaurants or bars open in this area, so you have to go all the way to the back section of the resort if you want anything to eat or drink? Is this truehuh.gif

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
