Melia Tamarindos
Ranked #5 of 19 Hotels in San Agustin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

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

Stayed: October 2017

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.

In reality a good 4* hotel. Lovely gardens and pools with access direct to the beach. The observatory session with Frank was really great. Generally the food was very good with reasonable vegetarian choices. The wait staff were very good - except for 1 at the pool bar. The male breakfast chef was consistently miserable but cooked a good omlett. Reception staff were helpful. We were half board which was quite sufficient for us - the all inclusive option was offered but not really explained. TV channel choice was poor for English speaking guests and no kettle facility in the room.

But, it was a great quiet location. Good for families but also quiet relaxing areas in the extensive grounds. Go for a sea view room

Firstly this is a lovely location running straight onto the seafront. The hotel building overlooks the sea and there are gardens and pools on the way down. The sea front is lovely with slightly dark sands and a nice walk onto Malpalomas (avoid the Playa de Ingelas).

Check in was ok (although they did try to charge us for an already paid for holiday). Rooms were good with bizarrely separate bathroom and toilet. Nice balcony to sit on and good daily cleaning and bed making service. However smallish and dated.

Breakfast was wonderful. Fresh papaya, herrings of note but frankly there’s just about everything you would ever want.

We did try the upmarket Tara by Night but thought it overpriced and not up to standard. There are lots of nearby restaurants with Nintos the stand out and more at the nearby shopping centre.

Parking is easy mostly on site but also nearby. Overall we had a nice holiday.
