Mallorca-based Meliá Hotels International – a leading hotel company in Spain and one of the largest chains in Latin America and the Caribbean – received recognition at this year’s Tripadvisor Traveller’s Choice Awards.

The Meliá and the Paradisus brands received the highest number of votes, with 15 inclusions in the winning hotel lists – including 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.

Gabriel Escarrer, vice chairman and CEO of Meliá Hotels International, says: “The Traveller’s Choice Awards are important because they are decided by travellers themselves – many of them experienced travellers, 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.”
