We used an RCI timeshare transfer from our Gold Crown resort in Cape Town to this hotel. We were blown away by the hotel and the facilities provided in the room. The room was the largest room we have ever had in a hotel with the added convenience of a fully stocked kitchen, large living area and balcony with Jacuzzi overlooking the sea. The hotel also offered a beautiful large swimming pool, with pool bar and private areas for adults only (overlooking the beach) although this was only accessible to Level One guests. The only criticism we had of the hotel was the prices of their cocktails - in comparison to all the other restaurants we went to and the hotel we stayed at on our last night - Melia was very pricey.

Love this hotel. Stayed here 5 times and always made to feel welcome. Great location. Poolside bar is fantastic for lunch, great choice and good service. Spa and gym also on site. Main dining hall has a good selection of food. Breakfast in particular is fantastic.

Amazing hotel definitely deserving of its 5 star status. Staff were very polite and helpful and explained everything fully upon arrival. The cleaning staff were exceptional and went above and beyond what we were expecting.

We stayed for here for 1 week, wish it was longer. The hotel is superb, 3 pools, daily activities for children and adults, if that is your thing. The gardens surrounding the hotel are very well tended, and lovely to sit in, one observation is that a few more seats would have been nice. The direct access to the beach was really good, so in the evenings you could walk along by the sea. Our room had a sea view on the 3rd floor which was a bonus, the sleep quality was very good indeed, it was good to sit on the balcony after a day in the sun. Our room was serviced on a daily basis to a high standard. Breakfast was buffet style with a very big selection that would suit all pallets, many variety of juices, cereals, cold meats, great selection of fresh fruit, pastries and fresh breads. All the staff from reception, housekeeping, restaurant and poolside staff were helpful and friendly. There is also an observatory in the grounds, on Mondays & Thursdays evenings they have an astronomer who explains location of stars and planets, which you can see through the telescope, very interesting indeed, if you like this type of thing, then ask at reception, it's Free. The hotels location is good, with a bus stop just a short walk from the hotel, on the main road, buses run on a regular timetable which are clearly displayed at the stop, we used it a couple of times, it was great value. It was our anniversary and a bottle of champagne was waiting in our room when we arrived, a nice touch, Thank You Melia Tamarindos. Would certainly recommend this hotel for a relaxing holiday.

Just returned home from a fantastic 2 week stay at the Melia Tamarindos. The hotel itself is beautiful and the gardens and surrounding pool area do not disappoint either!There is plenty of space and sun loungers around the pool and direct access to the beach. All of the staff were very friendly and very accomodating they could not do enough for us during our stay!The hotel has daily activities for both adults and children. I do not have any children but participated in the various aqua aerobics and fitness classes. I have to give a special mention to the Reps João, Lucia and Mr Jocito whose fitness classes kept me entertained every day. I can't wait to return for my next holiday and would highly recommend it.

We stayed in the level lounge..our room was nice and spacious. We also had some cooking facilities which was important to me as we are vegan and like to prepare our own meals. Room had a private hot tub, dining area and tv. There was good quality entertainment every night. This included some singer followed by a act such as dancers, acrobats etc The highlight for us was the good range of daily activities, this included Pilates, Latin dancing, aqua, Zumba etc. I was not expecting any of these, as such this was an extra bonus and our holiday became more of a wellness break. Staff on the whole were very helpful and friendly, our particular thanks to Javier in the level lounge for his attentive service. Joao from the fitness team was amazing -very friendly, helpful and fun -loved the classes especially Pilates, Latin Dance and Sangria making. Zumba session with Mr T, is a must .. Location was very good, bus stop just outside so you could venture out easily. the resort itself is with direct access to a beach. Very likely to go again - The reason I have not given a 5 star, is that I feel the resort needs to do more towards its needs to cater for people with specific dietary requirements be it vegan, vegetarian etc and make us feel more welcome. Normally on this point, all Melia are fantastic.

The food is poor, the deserts are terrible, the employees have too much hours of work and sure not happy and friendly. One day missing toilette papper, 2 day´s they dont replaced the water bottles in mini bar, one week never switch sheets. Few employees at the bars... For a 3 stars hotel... is alright... Melia Tamarinos... Never Again

Very nice location in San Agustin beach in Gran Canaria, direct access to beach and beautiful pools and sport facilities (squash and tennis). Very good meals abd restaurants including local dishes as fish and papas arrugas. Very service people around and easy and cheap taxi connection with shops, Playa del Ingles beach and Maspalomas dunes.

Just come back from Melia Tamarindos and once again with this hotel chain we were not disappointed. We had a sea view suit on 'the level' and we couldn't fault it. Very clean, lots of space, great bed and balcony. It had every fasility we could have wanted. The hotel and grounds were well kept and lots of room for everyone. The resteraunt served a good variety of food with local dishes, Italian and Chinese food. The staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. The Melia Hotels we have stayed at in the past have been more of a commercial kind but this was a very relaxing 'holiday' hotel. This did not detract from our enjoyment and we had a very relaxing time. Being in the entertainment business, we were also impressed with the standard of entertainment offered. One or two of the acts were a little old fashioned but a good standard in general. The surrounding area was also impressive. With clean parks and walks. If you want a relaxing holiday or have a family fun time. We can recommend this hotel. We also had a late checkout which was very welcome.

This is a very good hotel, staff is very friendly, it has few 3 pools & 3 restaurants and next to the beach. It is off the road and has very good public transport links to north and south. I find Public Information office near the hotel is very handy and you can get lots of good advice from there.
