Melia Tortuga Beach is now our No.1 “quick break” destination. The ideal place to get away from it all for a week or two. This is our fourth time in a year and each time we have seen improvements. Again you can't fault the staff who offer a high level of customer care are always on hand to provide assistance... More

A late review but very positive nevertheless ( period spent at Melia Toruga Beach Santa Maria: 12 -22 February 2014) If you book well in advance(almost one year in beforehand) on their website and buy only the flight tickets a part...you can make a very good deal. The hotel can arrange the taxi for you, to pick you up from... More

10 days sunshine. The hotel offers a lot for the money, if you look for an easy holyday this is a perfect hotel. The pools are placed so that you do not have to walk too far and the bars are near you everywhere, the rooms / bungalows are perfect and there is airco in the bedroom, and in the... More

We went this month for our 25th wedding anniversary. We emailed ahead hoping for a quiet room with a sea or pool view. We got a quiet room...... There was no drink on arrival and this wasn't due to being in a big cue of people as we were first there after private transfer. Our room card didn't work so... More

Recently returned from a 2 week stay at Melia Tortuga and considering it is a 5 star 'MELIA' hotel we were a bit disappointed with the service on occasions. First impressions - no drink/cocktail on arrival which I feel helps to create a warm welcome. Reception staff during check-in were absolutely diabolical, I'm being kind, and did not get any... More

Just returned from a fantastic holiday at The Melia Tortuga Hotel, outside Santa Maria. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite, with 2 bathrooms, decent living area and even a kitchen (not that we needed it). Superb quality rooms and loads of space. The hotel has 4 restaurants, 1 buffet and 3 a la carte. What's great is that, unlike... More

A great place to go for a week off. Room? You mean apartment, we stayed in Room 402! It was a two bedroom suite. With two bathrooms, air conditioned and very large. Clean well maintained and great to stay in. Not lots to do outside of sunning yourselves. Quad bikes worth a go, 4 hours you can see the island.... More
