Thumbs up Sol Melia MAS program

Just a few words about this very popular hotel chain (in Spain mainly). With some business in Spain, I (hardly) gained 2 free nights in a Tryp hotel (midrange). I booked at the Tryp Menfis in the overpricey Madrid (nicely renovated, on the Gran Via in the City center). Breakfast for 2 was free (and great), no taxes, no nothing! Very nice award memories.

The Sol Melia web site seems to show that the program is free to join, and that its members get free breakfast on any paid rate. Sounds great.
Does anyone know if this is true? Also, do you have to book via the website, or can you book on Expedia, etc?
Thanks for any feedback!

mas Gold

According to information on the website:

Quote:
mas Gold Program

During the first quarter of each year, we revise all mas card holder accounts. Those customers who have booked at least 20 stays and accumulated more than 35,000 mas points receive the Sol Meliá masgold card for their loyalty.
With last year's stays and points I should be upgraded to Gold. Does anyone know when exactly in the first quarter these updates happen? Thx.

Thanks

Smile CELEBRATING 15 YEARS OF mas REWARDS WITH NEW ADVANTAGES

Seems the mas programme has been upgraded with a new level (Platinum):

Quote:
This year the mas Rewards programme is celebrating its 15th anniversary. And the best way to celebrate is by offering all of our members new benefits, a new category – mas platinum -, and exciting promotions. Enjoy an exclusive world of advantages, full of benefits which will help you enjoy our hotels even more. Because you always deserve more.

Discover the new mas benefits as of the 1st April
All details can be found here.

Looks quite interesting to me: 20 nights or 20,000 points for gold (was 20 stays and 35,000 points), 50 nights and 50,000 points for platinum.

BTW: they are also running a referral programme. If anyone is interested, drop me a private message.

Pieter

They are not that generous. I think Hilton and specialy Goldpoints from Radisson are more generous.
Currently holding gold, but I got over 100+ nights this year and 150000+ points, so I guess I'm getting platinum.

If somebody wants to get a referral invite, just ask.

Good program but naturally the majority of their hotels are in Spain so naturally other hotel programs could be perceived as "better" due to their hotels being in far more locations around the world.

I just got platinum, but many hotel managers don't even know it exists and don't know the advantages that come with it (free minibar, free wifi, free upgrade, free breakfast, etc)
I have to explain and show my letter that came with the card every time.

So is it true that mas members get free breakfast for just being a member? That sounds too good to be true.....

Planning a trip to Alicante for the last day of the festival of St. John, so don't know if I'll eat it anyway!!

I think the free breakfast depends on your status level. Just got my blue card (entry/lowest level) yesterday. The cover letter mentions a 50% discount on breakfast. Still think its a good deal if true. Maybe someone more experienced could confirm?
