5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A very well run and professional spanish hotel with high comfort and perfect location. Wonderful ocean view from the rooms fronting the ocean and with a wonderful garden. Good location for shopping at Vecindario Atlantico shopping center and walking distance to several restaurants in San Augustin or Playa del Ingles.

First the bad: the rooms are a tad outdated and the English translation of messages to the guests in the elevators could be done a bit better but … that is pretty much it. Then the good: from the smile of bellboy Israël (who is a true calling card for the hotel) over the seating around the pool and beach... More

We enjoyed our week at the Melia Tamarindos (MT) Hotel in San Agustin, an East coast suburb of the big Playa Del Ingles resort on Gran Canaria. Only 15 mins from the airport, the hotel is well situated, right on the beach but is a bit of a faded glory. Other than the great position, service and food this is... More

We had a lovely restful Christmas break with excellent service and activities if we wanted them. Location is perfect and views amazing. Close to beach and extensive pool area and grounds. Highly recommended.

You like hard beds? I don't. What is wrong with Melia Hotels... all the beds are super hard. I don't mean they are not good, but jee, not the soft pillowy cozy feeling I wish. Anyway, you get used to it and they must have something good as they are new... The hotel is that old good hotel with profesional... More

First let me say that my family and I have been going to the Canary Islands for years for our New Years holidays and have always stayed in Melia hotels. Naturally, we thought this one would be similar. Sadly, it was the worst. We're to start. The hotel is about 40 years old and you can tell. The lounge area... More

We have just returned from an absolutely marvellous Christmas week at The Melia Tamarindos (23- 30 Dec). We were 7 people of all ages -grandchildren through to grandparents and all were totally content with what we received from the hotel. We had standard rooms which are not large, but very adequate with comfortably cushion-furnished balconies, bathrooms with tub and shower,... More

The standard rooms are not that big but comfortable, we liked the balcony with seaview. Nice pool area (heated pool in winter) and beautiful garden. Dinner and breakfast at the restaurant was varied and of good quality. Very friendly and professional staff !

Wonderful location ; right onto beach and costal walk for miles. Great pool and gardens. Room size small for 5 star and back rooms face noisy road. Breakfast : good. Pool menu limited. Staff could learn to smile.
