We have jus returned from the most relaxing week at Melia Tortuga. The hotel is beautiful, the gardens immaculate...not a leaf out of place! The weather was hot and sunny as expected, the drinks and food of a good quality with plenty to choose from ensuring you had something different at every meal.The beach was quiet, plenty of sunbeds with a lovely beach bar to keep the thrist at bay. All the staff were friendly, not quite as efficient as those in London however if I had to work in that heat I dont think I would be running around either, what's the rush, you're on holiday and not going anywhere in a hurry! We couldnt fault them.
My husband and I needed a break from the stresses of everyday life and that is certaining what we got. We were lucky to receive an upgrage (thank you very much to the General Manager) to a three bedroomed villa with private pool. Our days consisted of a slow walk to breakfast , sleep by the pool, slow walk to lunch, sleep by the pool, cocktails at the beach with the sunset DJ( my fav bit of the holiday) and a slow walk to one of the restaurants for dinner and then perhaps the evening entertainment. Perfect and just what we needed.
We walked to Santa Maria one day along the beach, lovely walk but be warned it took about 1.5 hrs but was worth it. Take some cash for a drink in Santa Maria and some strong sunscreen. We didnt book any trips as we wanted a rest.
Having travelled a fair amount- Caribbean, Europe, America, Austrialia, Maldives, India , Thailand etc we both agreed it was one of the most relaxing and most well kept hotels we have stayed in. If you want a rest and a break from reality on a budget that doesnt break the bank then this is a good place to go. Whenever we feel life is getting on top of us we will certainly be heading back
