Melia Caribe or Ocean Sand?

I can't give a review or anything, but from what I saw - if Ocean Sand is getting such great reviews from these gals - I'd go with that instead of Melia...

A HUGE thread with past and present Melia brides and their weddings.

Melia has mature, beautiful and huge grounds which are great for walking or if you want taking the trolley (not for the impatient or people who don't like to walk). Our guests were between 12 and 72. Our older guests were treated wonderfully by the staff, always offered a ride if they were walking from the restaurants back to their rooms. The regular rooms are in definite need of a refresh to be given a 4.5 rating like they have listed in Canadian tour books. Royal Service is definitely the way to go if you stay here. Gabi restaurant is awesome for food.
Wherever you choose it will be beautiful. Like Darcy stated above there is a huge thread with more Melia info on Debbies. Also look at pics on Trip Advisor showing traveller photos of each of the resorts to get a sense of what the rooms and grounds look like. Do a list of what your have to have for the resort and that will help you decide. Both resorts are nice in my opinion.

I just got married at the Melia Caribe Tropical. Goldengirl stole the words right out of my mouth. THe Melia is absolutely beautiful. I had my ceremony at the Gazebo = gorgeous!!! but I had my reception at the Jellyfish REstaurant. 10mins from the Melia. Why I chose to do that well my guest and I were staying at the resort 4 days before our big day and thought they will be seeing everyone else's wedding. Thought I surprise them and take them offsite. Pricing was pretty much close to the Melia's prices. The difference is I had the entire restaurant exclusively for my wedding reception. OH I wish I was there right now. The food at the Jellyfish is amazing!!!! Mayte the wedding coordinator is the sweetest, down to earth and unbelievable customer service.
