We where there in april 2015 and had a great time. The children loved the mini club. The manager Elias was always talking to us and making sure that we where ok. Our favourite restaurant was Ôgrille by the beach and they have a head waiter Daniel that was very good.

The simplest way to put it is- don't take any notice of the bad reviews!! Room; more than we expected, it's not your ordinary room. A room at the Melia Tortuga is a 2bedroom suite with living space, a kitchen and 1 or 2 baths depending on what you pay for. Spot on! Food; with a choice of 4 different...

This hotel is fantastic! The service, rooms, food, the atmosphere at the beach bar! Sunset at the beach is just amazing! People in their numbers flock to the waters edge and even in the warm waters to savour the atmosphere! Enjoyed so much I will be coming back but next time as a holidaymaker 😀🌞
