The Gran Melia Resort is located in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico on the northeastern corner. It is centrally located – 30 minutes from the airport, 40 minutes to Old San Juan, 10 minutes to Luquillo’s famous beaches and El Yunque Rainforest, and 25 minutes from the snorkeling and small islands and cays off the east coast. It is the perfect jumping off place to explore some of Puerto Rico’s best attractions.
Well, the Gran Melia is right in Caribbean Trading Company’s backyard, and their popularity for meetings, incentives, and destination weddings comes as no surprise to us. The resort has lots of amenities to offer and is located right next to Trump Golf International, home of the annual PGA Puerto Rico Open. We have worked with many corporate groups there so we have gotten the chance to see and explore the property a bit. From the lobby to the suites to the beautiful natural surroundings, the Gran Melia Resort is truly impressive. All of the room available are junior and deluxe suites, and their special VIP Villas are beyond description – truly a perfect private oasis. Perfect for those looking to unwind and relax.
The Gran Melia Puerto Rico is a leader in luxury, with a lagoon-style swimming pool, water sports, full-service spa and health club, lighted tennis courts, and two 18-hole championship golf courses surrounded by a lush, tropical habitat. The outdoor space offers beautiful views and is the perfect venue for weddings and corporate meetings.
Renowned for its outstanding cuisine, Gran Meliá Puerto Rico features six themed restaurants. Of particular note is Pasion by Myrta, one of Puerto Rico’s leading famous chefs and the founder of the well-known Pasion por el Fogon in Fajardo. Her authentic and creative menu is an excellent introduction to Puerto Rican cuisine.
