We too went to the Melia Atlantico on the 5th May and stayed till the 16th yet we were only offered £40 each , this seems very unfair when others have got £50 for only 1 week, I will have to get in touch with Thomsons.
The hotel itself is lovely and the situation really nice, the Housekeeping staff great and the waiters and waitresses also, but the Restaurant is really going to have to sort itself out, the food was truly awful, same , same, same, and what is with the brussel spouts and baby carrots for breakfast !!!
I just had a glass of wine for evening meal, it ranged from third of a glass to just covering the bottom, which was more often than not.
We too could only book half board, so it cost us an awful lot more for lunches than we would have wanted, just to get nice food.
The hotel did do snacks at lunch but they took so long to cook I dont know how they would manage with lots of people eating as it was there were only about 4 couples when we tried them and waited 45 mins.
It is the square I feel sorry for, hardly anyone went into it, so it was very much a ghost town , not helped by All inclusive.
The last issue was lack of information, other than expensive trips. There was a little train that runs each day but no information was given, it did a tour into and around Ayemonte, there were 3 couples on it when we went, what a waste, as people were asking about them and id they were running.
This is a lovely part of the world and would like to come back but only after the issues have been sorted at the Melia Atlantico.
This is not a Platinum holiday, yet.
