• The Travellers Choice Awards 2013 reward company hotels in Latin America and the Caribbean, where Meliá is a market leader in resort hotels
• Meliá has recently added the Bahamas and Jamaica to its growing list of high potential destinations
Once again, this year’s prestigious "Travellers Choice Awards" from Tripadvisor, the largest travel website in the world, have rewarded the excellence of hotels owned or operated in major resort destinations by Meliá Hotels International, the leading hotel company in Spain and one of the biggest chains in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Compared to other companies more focused on the mid-scale or economy hotel segment, the Majorca-based Meliá Hotels International has positioned itself among the favorites of travelers seeking luxury hotel experiences in destinations like Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic, Playa del Carmen on the Riviera Maya (Mexico) or Cuba. The Meliá and the Paradisus brands received the highest number of votes, with 15 citations in the winning hotel lists, such as Meliá Cayo Coco (Cuba), Meliá Buenavista (Cuba) Meliá Buenos Aires (Argentina) Paradisus Palma Real- The Reserve (Dominican Republic), Paradisus Río de Oro (Cuba) and Paradisus Playa del Carmen La Esmeralda (Mexico).
Meliá and Paradisus can thus recommend to guests hotels which feature amongst the most romantic, the best for family travel, and the best all-inclusive resorts in the world (the Paradisus brand is exclusively for luxury all-inclusive hotels) and also the best Luxury Restaurant in the Caribbean and one of the top 10 wordlwide for "Passion by Martin Berasategui" at the Paradisus Palma Real resort (Domincan Republic).
For Gabriel Escarrer, Vice Chairman and CEO of Meliá Hotels International,"the Travellers Choice Awards are important because they are decided by travelers themselves; many of them experienced travelers, who get involved with Tripadvisor. Voting this year confirms the success of our desire to provide the best hotels in major holiday destinations as well as our strong performance in the upscale and luxury hotel segment."
Three months ago, Meliá hotels International reported that over half of its entire portfolio of hotels has been awarded the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence, demonstrating the high standards of quality and service that the Spanish company requires of its brands worldwide.
