This is really a super Hotel, but the Managers let it down in a big way. The serving Staff are of an average age, well, lets say , over 40, and they were brilliant! The housekeeping staff, the same. Abraham the 'Bar Manager', could learn a thing or two from his older colleagues, and so could the Head Chef. The...

Just returned from 10 days here. Took 30 minutes to book in. There was no manager to assist - just lots of young women with limited knowledge of English. Lighting in rooms terrible - rubber sheet over mattress. Bath robes fit only very thin people. Every day around pool - water aerobics for about 5 people with unbelievably loud music...

We arrived here after changing hotels due to bad experience in Playa da Ingles 4 days into our 2 week holiday over New Year. Certainly an improvement, nice clean hotel, pleasant staff. Found the food a little monotonous at times, Fish overcooked, Meat not cooked enough. Breakfasts, plentiful and varied however, the water for tea was not boiling and had...

We just checked out. Old rooms.  Very very small rooms.  Travelling with a child for almost 2 weeks we would never expect,  that his bed was placed just next to our bed.  Furniture is old and plus very dangerouse.  Bedside tables are made of stone. Our child once rolled out from the bed,  hit his head on the stone corner....

After reading some of the reviews, I have to totally disagree, my second stay here for Christmas, all staff were friendly and pleasant, from cleaning staff to management, spotless, beds comfortable, plenty of variety of food, pool area excellent and entertainment enjoyable, if people don't like this hotel maybe they should stay at home. Looking forward to coming back for...

Stayed at the Melia Tamarindos from 30/12 - 3/1. Got married here in 2002. Nice hotel, lots of good memories for me but starting to show its age. Rooms still in good condition, but quite all style decoration. Communal areas are clean and nice and pool was heated. Pool area nice and plenty of beds. Lovely gardens. Casino now closed....

We stayed for the second time at the Melia Tamarindos. It's a lovely hotel with great and spacious grounds and helpful staff. Evening entertainment was not as good as two years ago or thus as well attended - perhaps a false economy by the hotel as it meant the bar area was empty. Breakfast was stupendous - huge variety and...

Expensive mistake! The Classic rooms are definately not 5* as advertised. This hotel was not cheap and I expected a lot more for my money as it is advertised as a 5*. The classic room was far from the luxury I expect from a 5* hotel. I think these rooms should be advertised as 3* very dissapointing. Could not recommend.
