Very tired,old looking hotel. Great staff but the food wasn’t very good. Great location just in my opinion needs a makeover and please please change the mattress coze you can get a better night sleep on the floor :( The staff was great,hope they getting a little bonus time to time.

Went back here for a 2nd time. The grounds, location and restaurant food are brilliant but service in the restaurant not good. Rooms are quite tired. No coffee making facilities in rooms. On the whole a good holiday but definitely not 5 star.

The Melia Tamarindos is in a wonderful position with a great swimming pool. There the positives end. I have been coming to this hotel for many years and now feel that to buy a holiday in 5* hotel which openly has 2 levels (why pay more for service in 5*) is a disgrace. The noise levels :footfall from corridors , noise from top and side rooms, in the bedrooms ,worst of all bathrooms backing onto each other where conversation and very personal noise can be heard are not acceptable.

Easy drive from the airport to a very confortable hotel located in the quieter part of the island, away from the brash Playa de Ingelas. The hotel has a small car park and there is free parking on the streets nearby. The rooms are comfy and have balconies and air conditioning units (which we did not use). The TV has some English channels. The hotel tries hard with the entertainment and we enjoyed some crazy golf, we spent some time in the hotel observatory enjoying the night sky and we watched and a few shows at night. There are also tennis courts and a spa but you have to pay extra for that. Toiletries are replenished every day by excellent and trustworthy cleaners so don't bother packing shampoo, shower gel and conditioner but do bring a kettle and tea bags! There are no drinks making facilities in the rooms! We looked forward to a fabulous breakfast selection every morning. That was a real highlight! We dined at Tara by Night but found that it did not compare with some of the other excellent restaurants nearby such as Nintos and the pizza restaurants in the San Agustin Shopping Centre.. There are no washing machines and dryers in the hotel to do your own laundry so another tip if you are travelling light is to use the laundrette in Playa de Ingelas which is very much cheaper. They also weigh the full load rather counting everything and individually pricing every item of clothing. Overall we had a lovely holiday which went far to quickly!

Nice room, best service, best breakfast ever and dinner, Everything is nice at Melia Tamarindos. I like to stay in SanAgustin,this hotel is nice and clean. Near to the sea. You can hear the sea, so wonderful to my ears.

Second time staying åt Melia Tamarindos. And so satisfied with everything. Service, kindness, breakfast, dinner. And quiet and easy. Every morning we start with a walk along the beach - perfect start before breakfast. We will comeback!

Myself and husband spent 10 nights here January 2018, we booked all inclusive in a double room. The room was on 3rd floor and facing the shops/road/mountain, we did not get any sun on the balcony but as a winter destination we were happy enough to go sit by the pool area. If you want a sunny balcony you would need to upgrade to sea view, however we were happy enough o sit on the balcony of an evening and watch the world go by, if sea view side not really much to look at.The room was very comfortable, clean plenty of storage space and for a change more than enough hangers. The toiletries were replaced as and when were really nice quality, towels and bedding changed as required. My only comments I suppose was the room safe all the instructions were in Spanish, after a few attempts we managed to work out how to open and close safe, and there are no tea coffee facilities in the room, but as all inclusive could get drinks as and when just had to go to bars for them. There was a small fridge in the room which was stocked each day with 2 beers and soft drinks and water again only on the AI package. The restaurant, maybe a little dated but it was large and always plenty of room, the staff were excellent and very efficient, the food was all buffet and there was plenty of choice we loved the sea food stir fry, pick your own fresh sea food/fish/veg and it was cooked in front of you it was beautiful. At lunch times we ate by the pool bar again help yourself buffet of Tuna/salads cold meats/cheese after a couple of days we realised we could also have toasted sandwich or burger. The drinks package for all inc was probably one of the best we have had all branded drinks and all served beautifully especially the G&T. The bar of an evening had some entertainment for about an hour the flamenco dancing was particularly good, some of the other entertainment was not as good but passed the time. The grounds of the hotel are well maintained, and the pool was a little on the cool side but ok once you braved it. The hotel has been a very grand hotel in its day and does need a little updating in parts but we really enjoyed our stay here and could not have been looked after any better

This is a beautiful hotel located on the coast. There are multiple places to sit and relax and a good choice of pools. We found that the pools were a little cold in October. We were all inclusive and found the food in the restaurant to be excellent, there was a wide choice which varied every night. The bar had good service and nightly entertainment was provided. All in all an excellent holiday

An excellent hotel with very friendly staff. Very clean,excellent breakfast and very comfortable beds. Easy access to a good beach and close to many restaurants and shops. Tea/ coffee making facilities in room missing in this 5star hotel and gym had only one cross-trainer machine.could do with one more.

I chose to stay at Meliá Tamarindos as I thought the location by the sea together with the gardens would provide the right environment for me to relax fully. As a solo traveller, I found the environment perfect for chilling out and reading by the pool. All the staff are simply wonderful. It’s hard to pick favourites but Joao and Josito who arrange the activities were a lot of fun, also they made introductions so I met some friends. The hotel is very clean and although the rooms were a bit tired and in need of a refit- they are perfectly good enough. I upgraded to a seaview - next time I would ensure I had a room in the eastern wing to get the last dying rays of the sun. I could have upgraded to “The Level” for an extra £85 a day - the same price for two as one. It is no doubt even swankier but not worth it if you are out all day anyway. An enormous highlight was the trip to the hotels observatory and Frank opened all of our eyes to the myriad stars above us. Phenomenal. San augustin is a small area, with a couple of small supermarkets and cafes. Not much to do but perfect for a fly and flop holiday.
