Traveler Review – Gran Melia Puerto Rico

Amphibia travelers Jennifer and Mike just returned from a relaxing spring getaway at the Gran Melia Puerto Rico. After a week of perfect Caribbean weather spent relaxing on the beach, golfing and exploring the island they’re ready to pass along a review of the resort… and a great golf tip!

The Gran Melia was lovely. The service was great, and the room, pools and beach access were perfect. I liked having several restaurants to choose from at the resort, and I thought the prices for food and drink weren’t outrageous. I mean, $10 for a cocktail at the pool is pricey, but you’re at a swim-up bar for goodness sake – you’re paying for the coolness of that.
I was very glad we had the car, because it gave us a chance to drive to the southern coast, explore the rainforest, and wind through the mountain roads in the inland. We always felt safe, and with just a general map we were able to get around just fine. And the weather was a perfect 85 degrees all week.
If you have any golfing clients in the future, I’d point them to the Berwind Country Club – about 20 minutes from the Gran Melia. While the Trump course would have ran us about $600 for greens fees, cart and rental clubs for two … This club had $25 greens fees with $40 rental clubs. The clubs were pretty old and mis-matched, but the course was beautiful (one of the longest courses on the island I understand) and we had a lot of fun. And they don’t need tee-times! You just walk on whenever. It was great.
