Recent guest reviews

The hotel location is excellent with close family activities including the Hanger 37 air soft experience, Sioux Park and San Augustine Shop Mall. Food was excellent and Staff extremely helpful and friendly.

Hotel is a bit old but our suite was bug, bed very good, even for the kids. Great bathroom. Direct on the beach, fantastic pool, great and friendly personnel. We at the Level type of booking which give you some extras such as particular lounges and breakfast place, great breakfast. The kidsclub was also great, it is 2hours in the morning with activities and 2 in the afternoonn. Also some fun events in the evenings I would say that the food in the evening could be better. Also live musics and one thing to not miss is the observatory visit at the hotel Overall great place

It's a bit run down and feels like it hasn't had money spent on it. Staff are generally very good. Some are good at Not seeing you! It's a shame because we like the location, the pool, the green space, the space telescope. The rooms are being updated but we haven't had one yet. Clients are like us usually quiet Activities are good but there is less to do than when we went first. Shop around corner for paper. Farmers Market in the shopping centre up the road is not advertised at all and i only stumble on it. Beach is quiet and sandy. The only place on the island where we never had cloudy days when everyone else on the plane says it rained!

We arrived around 10 in the evening and check in was painless, shown to room and sent a cold plate of food as restaurant had closed. We had an inland view room - this description does not fully cover the view which was infact over a car park and very close to a busy road, the noise of which kept me awake most of the night. We requested to be moved the next day which was arranged but had to pay a surcharge of 30 euros per day for a sea view room. Not much choise as all other rooms were still overlooking the road. The rooms were of a similar standard but we had bathrobe and slippers provided in sea view room and not in inland view room. Mini bar was restocked daily and room was cleaned daily. We had a broken safe which was reported and never resolved. We were all inclusive and there is miscommunication as to what is covered and what is not. We were told that we could eat at the a la carte restaurant during 11.00 and 17.30 but were told by staff at the restaurant that we would be charged for anything other than burger of toasted ham and cheese sandwich. One member of staff told us to help ourselves to ice creams in freezers at the bar another one very rudely told us we had to pay. The food is reasonably good quality but is very very repetitive and consequently becomes very boring after a few days. Reception staff were cheerful and helpful as were the bar staff but sadly cant say the same about some of the other staff who could be quite rude. This is not a 5 star hotel in any way shape or form I would go so far as to say that it is not even a good 4 star hotel. The only thing about it that is 5 star is the cost. It really is overpriced and not worth the money

Beautiful hotel and garden by a very nice beach. Seaview double rooms are beautiful, clean and spacious with an elegant bathroom. Hotel staff are very kind and helpful, with excellent customer care at the reception desk. Excellent fresh and flavoured food at the hotel’s evening gastronomic restaurant Tara By Night. Very nice shows in the evening and excellent daily sports activities, a real big thank you to the animation team Josito, Jamire, , Raquel, Paula and Viktor who brought some move and fun to the quiet hotel life, proposing activities for every age and condition, and who made the difference in making me rate the hotel as excellent and not just good.

This was our 2nd time at the Melia, and we had another great stay, we did have a better room this time, a family room rather than a double with an extra bed. The pool bar restaurant menu has changed, so we only ate there once as we wanted something lighter, but it was lovely. The pool area is just lovely and it's a refreshing change that you still don't have a fight for sun beds at this hotel. There is no need to rush down at 7am as there are plenty to go around and sun beds still available even past 10am. Friendly and helpful reception staff and we look forward to our next stay next year.

This hotel has a 2 tier system for lounges. those booked in The Level get a very nice lounge which is only accessible with a special key card. Those of us (the majority only have a lounge bar which has loud music in the evening and therefore nowhere comfortable to relax. The buffet is very poor. The food is not hot and the choices are minimal. We ate evening meals late and always found the desserts were not replenished and we only got the left overs of cakes, puddings and pies. This hotel cannot be classed 5 star even though they charge quite a lot for bad service, food and comfort. The sun loungers are uncomfortable because they are shorter than usual. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone used to 5 star hotels.

Needs a lot of improvements to the rooms, bar prices are way to expensive, although we had a nice holiday holiday we expected a lot more from the hotel, food was disappointing, swimming pool area was nice the pool was lovely and very clean, gym needs more equipment but was adequate.

Diverted to Gran Canaria for one night due to landing problems in Madeira, we were fortunate to be put up in this hotel. Several stories high. Rooms first class. But the highlight was the food. For vegetarians the choice was excellent too.

I would give this hotel 4.5 rating we thoroughly enjoyed it. If it was out of 100% then this would be 98% for us. When you arrive you may feel oh dear but when you enter the hotel you will understand its deceiving. The 2% loss is simple the rooms need an update they are tired but accepts be. The other is breakfast outside, people have a right to smoke but there should be a designated area to the right and maybe round the corner?? Most of the people were non smokers. All the staff we found to be great and helpful and attentive sun beds are the usual but we never had a problem. The room staff and reception were great and all bar staff in all areas good as well. The location suited us perfectly and it was an international group of people from Europe. Would I go again most definitely, we used the bus but maybe a car is a good idea. This is not the first Melia we have stayed in but so far they have all been great The Thompson's UK
