Very nice place as a base to explore and relax

Currently here on our first day, the resort looks very nice and the welcome was fun, big rooms! The restaurants and service are just amazing to say the least. So far so good, if anything changes I'll update the post. For now I would recommend staying here. Day 3: it's still just amazing! Went for an island tour as well, I highly recommend it.

Great resort

Just spent 7 nights at this resort and had a really good, relaxing time. The staff were very friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough for us. The rooms were very clean and spacious. Will definitely be going back

Relaxing holiday at Melia Dunas Beach Resort

We have just returned from the Melia Dunas Resort. We stayed for 10 nights and had a wonderful experience. Upgrading to the Level is well worth the money in terms of dining and drink options. This a beautiful hotel and the the staff were friendly the and service we experienced was truly 5 star. The staff went out of their way to make sure our visit was memorable. The room facilities were comprehensive , spotlessly clean, very effective aircon and we had a great view of the sea. Level lunch menu was available by the Level Pool. A great selection of snacks with orders taken by the staff and then the food delivered to us by the pool. A lovely touch which everyone enjoyed. When we visited the resort, it was fairly quiet and you could see the hotel and island were still affected by Covid. Some of the restaurants, like Sahel, were not available during our visit and we thought the evening entertainment could have been more extensive. But these are minor points and we definitely want to return. Indeed we chatted with some fellow guests from different countries who were already on their fifth visit to this hotel ! We can see why. Thank you so much.
