They made all arrangements for shuttle service. Golf cart...

From the moment we walked in we felt so welcome. The pool area was inviting and serene. We were in the ocean front Frog suite which had a private walk out to the patio and beach. Mel and Ray and their staff made our stay unforgettable. We loved the communal gourmet kitchen where we could visit with other guests and...

I stayed at Casa Melray in early December and absolutely loved it! Mel and Ray were the perfect hosts and very helpful with recommendations for sightseeing, restaurants, etc. My room was spacious, spotless and I had a private sitting area outside where I sipped my morning coffee and listened to the ocean. The beach was very clean, quiet and safe...

This was my third visit to Casa Melray but my first time staying in the Penthouse. The experience was beyond my expectations! The view is phenomenal, the amenities top notch, the bed extremely comfortable, the location outstanding and the service is always delivered with a smile. This has become my home away from home. See you next year.

Wow, holiday destination for sure! Mel & Ray offer a warm and luxurious accommodation right on the beach! We watched the spectacular sunset every evening from their private beach chairs! We stayed with a large group of people and thus got to see most rooms up close, not one complaint from even one person! What is not to love? Clean,...

We have just returned from the most wonderful stay at Casa Melray. From the wonderful greeting from the hosts to large, meticulously clean, air-conditioned rooms. The pool and area were also beautiful, clean and continually attended by the gardener. The outdoor kitchen/bbq area was a total bonus as well as the outside washrooms and shower from the beach entrance.The beaches...

To say our time at Casa Melray was worth every penny would be the biggest understatement of the year. From the moment my first email inquiry landed in Mel’s inbox, we were greeted and taken care of with immense care. Melanie was helpful, sweet, kind and genuinely cared about ensuring we were being looked over. We arrived in Liberia, after...

We traveled to Playa Portrero with our 18 and 24 yr old sons to Casa Melray for our final spring break. There are hundreds of scenarios that would have been just fine with us, after all we were all together & on a long awaited vacation.
