Recent guest reviews
A really lovely hotel, slightly away from the centre of San Augustin with a lovely c40mins walk along the sea-front into Playa del Ingles. Great food (buffet breakfast is wonderful, tuna salad for lunch is quite something) - great staff and lovely grounds. Can't wait to go back.
Having stayed at many Melia hotels this is one of the best. We upgraded to the level rooms and if you can afford it I advise you to go for it. We had a Junior Suite on the top floor looking out over the gardens, the pool and the sea. The level lounge in the hotel has beer wine and soft drinks available all day with spirits available for an hour before dinner. Raoul in the level reception did an excellent job of looking after everyone.Not much outside the hotel but a bus or taxi will take you anywhere
My wife and have stayed there twice previously and enjoyed our holiday very much. The location is excellent and service in the hotel is always good. However standards have fallen considerably over the past few years. Food is not as good. Prices in the poolside bar have increased. It is obvious that this may have been a 5 star hotel 30 years ago but urgently needs a drastic over haul. There is some difference between this Melia version of 5 star and some of their other hotels. The Tamarindos does however have 5 star prices. Now to the bad part. After 2 days I noticed a bery small cockroach in the room.which I killed. Did not say anything as I assumed a once off but no. The night before we were due to leave there was another one in the room which was killed. I had planned to discuss this at reception next morning when checking out. Next morning we had another cockroach in the bathroom this time as big as your thumb. I videoed and took photo of it. I then killed it and brought it to reception. I told them this was totally unacceptable even for a 1 star. The response was the manager was not there and there was nothing they could do. So no reduction on the bill. And to show how poorly it is run on the way home I get a generic email hoping I enjoyed my stay in the hotel. Appalling...
I’m not a fan of “resorts” but I enjoyed staying here with my parents. My room was comfortable and the air conditioning was very effective. We did half board, and the food was of a good standard. Favorite part was the smaller area with sun beds facing the beach
Overall an excellent hotel stay. At Level check in we were promised Swedish news paper if possible. We could buy a news paper in the shop nearby the hotel but did not receive any at the hotel (room 704). However, this is not a serious complain.
Stayed here for a weeks winter break. The hotel was decent and the rooms were good. The real downside of this hotel was the food - we have been in the Sheraton hotel in Tenerife and even they did better food than here.
We spent 6 nights at the Melia Tamarindos and had a great stay. Staff were friendly and very helpful. We celebrated my daughter's birthday on our last day and reception were brilliant, helping us arrange a cake, a gift and balloons, which she absolutely loved. The cleaning staff did a super job and kept the place spotless. We stayed half board and felt the selection of food was very good, with plenty of fresh fruit, salads and freshly made hot dishes. The cheeses and baked goods were of a very high standard. We also ate lunch at the pool bar one day, and the food was delicious. All in all, a great place for a fun but also peaceful family holiday. My only negative was the beds we're a little hard but I understand they do provide mattress toppers, if requested. I would recommend this hotel for families, but also for couples, as the location was excellent and it had facilities to suit both younger and older guests.
We stayed just one night on our way to a timeshare. Rooms were comfortable... we arrived very late but were still able to order room service. Pool area was clean and spacious. We all had excellent spa treatments.
Melia Tamarindos was a nice resort right in the beach & nice walkway around the area. One thing that could have been a lot better was the beds were pretty hard but besides that it was a nice place. One thing that caught us off guard that I saw nothing about ahead of time was the electricity differences. Since Spain is different than the USA or Mexican & Aruba resorts, when we arrived we had to purchase adapters so we could have access to charge our devices. We had to fly thru Madrid & the travel agent said 1.05 hours of time would be plenty to make our connection back to the USA. WRONG. Had it not been for our flight being 1 hour late leaving Madrid to the USA, we would have missed our flight. People sitting right in front of us missed their flight from the previous day. We did the "half-pension" food plan & it was good. We don't drink & so we went across the street to the small supermarket to get .5 gallon bottles of water & then we refilled our water bottles & kept them in the refrigerator. For dinner we had to buy bottled water since no beverages were included & they say the drinking water is not good. I was never able to adjust to the jet lag but that is my fault not Melias but it was an issue for me. 14 hours one way in the air. Be prepared to hear a lot of German speaking people & they are nice. We are part of the Club Melia program that has some nice benefits. A lot of people took the bus to the hotel from the airport but we took a taxi that cost 35-40 euros. We would recommend the astronomy evening & sign up early.
Everything was great! I was very pleased with service, cleanliness, location, room. The staff was extremely friendly. If I go anywhere in the Canary Islands I will choose to stay in the same location!
