We went from September 9th-16th to get married. We brought with us 29 people, big party! I was so nervous because of all the bad...

Totally fantastic place to stay, I have no idea why some people post negative reports about MLD but having said that when you see the type of people who kick off at breakfast just because their fried egg yolk was broken then perhaps I can see why. We very rarely tipped but we still received great service, (a warm smile...

We were a bit apprehensive about this hotel after reading some of the negative reviews on here, but after our experience they were either on about a completely different hotel or were part of the 'if they don't serve steak and chips they're crap' brigade. The staff were lovely, especially the gardeners and the waiters, and the hotel was in...

We travelled as a couple to the Melia Las Dunas for 2 weeks and had high expectations. There were both positives and negatives to the holiday, which I will list below. NEGATIVES: >Throughout most of our 2 week stay, the snack bar by the adult pool were missing ingredients i.e. tuna, mushroom, so they could not serve some of the...
