Exceptional 10.0
Melia, Zanzibar is great
We had a great stay in Melia. We had a complimentary upgrade to the Level which I highly recommend and our stay will always be memorable. The environment, the rooms, cleanliness and the service was awesome. Everyone who worked there paid attention to detail which is a very important thing to us and they even went out of their way to assist us and make us comfortable. Javier the manager was great and Said who was mostly our waiter was great. We will definitely be back.

Large property with many all inclusive restaurants, nice pools. The level area is much better then the main area, so upgrade to premium is worth the money.
