We stayed in Melville for a night and had a great time. We went to a few bars and restaurants, we walked around and felt completely safe, even at night. My personal highlight is Pablo Eggs-go-Bar for breakfast or brunch.

Response from Joyce Wilfred D | Reviewed this property |
My husband and I stayed in Melville in a B & B Lucky Bean and we were most satisfied. Even though it is not a hotel, we would highly recommend this B & B. Transportation was easy with tuk tuk to visit around.
