Christmas at Tamarindos

We found the location ideal for us it was away from Playa Ingles the garden and pool area fine. The staff were friendly and helpful, however we were surprised that Melia had discontinued the supply of a kettle and coffee making facilities when I queried this I was told that they would bring hot water at a cost if ordered. Finding this unacceptable I went to reception indicating I was far from happy with their reasoning, other Melia Hotels provide this facility. A kettle did arrive without cups I had to take these from the dining room. In addition the cost of water at €2.50 when this is available in the adjacent supermarket at €0.26 we did not use one bottle for our entire stay. Apart from the above it was a pleasant stay the location is quite the walks good and the bus service is good we were not hassled in any way. We are members of Melia's reward card system and use Melia, Tryp or Sol as you know what to expect I hope that the small management savings like the kettle or the excessive profit margin on water will not spoil what is well run chain of hotels. We are happy that we chose the Tamarindos.

Not a bad hotel, nothing special, but wouldnt go back!

The service was a little poor not many waiters on in the evening so you have to go and get your own drink, I went all inclusive but when I asked for an Appletiser I was told that this had to be paid seperate!!! so I ordered a whisky & coke and this was which doesnt make sense as the W&C costs more that the soft drink that I wanted!! The rooms are nothing like shown on the website they are match box size and very dated. food was very good and clean rooms. evening entertainment was really naff, to say its a 5 * hotel it needs updateing and a bit of new bllod in to it.

The best thing about my stay was...

the evening dinners.

Hotel Melia Tamarindos

Unfortunately I thought the Tamarindos was not as good as last year. The rooms are badly needing renovated. The food was very average - no scrambled eggs, no fresh orange juice, bread hard for toasting to name just a few. Also noticed the gardens were not being kept as before - lots of weeds! Entertainment was good on only one night. However we did enjoy the pool area and lunch.

myself and my husband

just back since yesterday the 14th of november 2009, the hotel was lovey, we opted for half board which was plenty because we would not have been able to eat at lunch time as the buffet brekfast was enormous. The area is a bit quiet but you can walk take a bus or a quick taxi ride to playa de ingles. Some irish guy living out there told us about a shopping center in vesenderaio called Atlantacio where we got some great bargins in winter clothes, some of the shoe shops near the center are very cheap as well you should take a bus to it as a taxi will cost too much. There is some entertainment in the hotel which was good but finishes at 11pm but ther is a dico ther till 2am if you are up to it. All over i would recommend thuis hotel for cleaniness and food and the staff were very helpfull
