This is a quite expensive, small, Red Level Melia hotel.
For Covid-19 the standard were high which probably blocked the hotel staff to be friendly.
There is a Red Level section, but it does not let you feel being pampered and certainly not for the extra price you need to pay for Red level. The seperated Red Level swimming pool is ice-cold even in a hot summer.
It is situated nearly 40 km from Cadiz and there is no transporation to the city of Cadiz foreseen, unless you hire a car.
After some time in Madrid, Malaga and Seville it was time to wind down a little and just chill out. The Gran Melia Sancti Petri was the perfect place to do just that.
Driving from Seville to Novo Sancti Petri was a quick drive (expecially in a BMW 3 series) and the check in process was simple (this could have been due to us staying in the Red Level).
After check in, we were shown to our room which was the Red Level Room Pool Access. This is an Adults Only section, with a pool that is just for Red Level guests aged 18 and over. The room was nice but simple, but walking out the sliding door, we were greeted with a Balinese day bed, 2 sun lounges (in our area) and then the swimming pool just a few more steps away.
If you are thinking of staying here, I would suggest taking up the Red Level option. The seperate breakfast area just for Red Level guests, the 2 hours of tapas in the afternoon, all day drinks and private areas are a nice touch.
The hotel is set along the foreshore so walking down to the beach is not too far. Each morning we did a long stroll along the beach with many other people (which was definately a highlight of the stay).
The hotel has many restaurants and we only tried a couple of them. The buffet restaurant had a massive variety of precooked food and food that was cooked on request. The quality we felt wasnt that great.
Overall a great hotel but you will need a car if you want to visit other places in the area (there is nothing around this hotel) or Cadiz
Located on beachfront, this is a very high class hotel. Good reception, ample rooms, 4 restaurants to choose from, underground parking, efficient service, and many golf courses around. Also, a nice beach club. The beach is beautiful and great to walk on. All elements combine to make a great hotel experience.
