We stayed for 7 nights all inclusive booked with Thomson
The Hotel !! We have stayed in a few Melia Hotels and this one needs to catch up.
It's a purpose built timeshare not really a hotel.
We had a 2 bedroom apartment and it was lovely and spacious.
We tried 3 out of the four options .
The main one Spices is a buffet we would say the food was of a reasonable standard.
Aqua next to Spices we did not enjoy at all. We found the menu very limited only a choice of two set menus. Not for us.
OGrill down by the beach!
Beautiful setting menu slightly better ! Choice of three set menus. We found this okay.
Waterside! Seafood which my wife doesn't like so we gave it a miss. We did try it for lunch. Again it was okay.
Sal is a very remote island with very little to do. But if relaxing and quiet is what your after the it's the place for you.
All the staff at Melia Tortuga Beach are great they make the hotel.
In our opinion we had a nice experience but won't be going back in the near future!!
