We really enjoyed our stay at the Melia. Starting at the beginning, it must have been end of season blues Eileen did not give us a very exciting welcome to Spain. From the terminal building to the transfer coach at Faro we had to negotiate two roads and a car park on our own, we were just pointed in the general direction of our coach.Our room looked over the estuary, a view which we liked. yes i appreciate the fishing boats were noisy but if you closed the window then it was fine. The hotel was quite at night, being end of season the only entertainment was on odd nights, the opera singer was superb. The staff at the hotel were very friendly which i like and every were was kept very clean. I found a broad mix of people in the hotel young, old, German, French, Dutch, all of which made for a pleasant experience. I find it difficult to criticize the food, there was certainly plenty of it also varied. The thomson rep Nik was very helpful and always there when you wanted him, always enthusiastic. Be aware that Spanish is the main language spoken, we were double charged at two of the local restaurants. Sandy beach direct from the hotel made for a very pleasant stay, will be coming again before to long. George
