The hotel was nice, wasn't a fan of the food as there were flies everywhere & no fly guards on the food.
It was impossible to get a lounger in the morning people waiting at 5am and holding 6 at a time no monitoring of it at all. So you could throw towel over 6+ loungers then go for breakfast or even back to your room and come back whenever you want.
I found this particularly annoying as, well I just like fairness!
Sounds silly but I do, and the staff there did not seem to care about how blatant some of the guests were about this.
The staff didn't do anything to stop some of the guests often dangerous behaviour around the pool.
Maybe it's just the nurse in me but I there were a lot of accidents waiting to happen and the staff turned a blind eye.
This sounds like a moan but I'm just being honest being around the pool was annoying.
On a whole it was break away which I needed, the locations around the hotel were beautiful and we had a lovely boat trip which was my favourite part of the holiday.
I don't think I would stay in this hotel again but I would go back to the area.

Got this place as part of a cheap deal and weren't too sure what I was going to get... Fantastic. In short... Excellent free local parking, great all inclusive food (including San Miguel beer and coca-cola branded drinks), great pools, fridge in room, helpful staff, and the place was clean. Take a towel. Oh, and Lidl is opening just up the road in a couple of weeks.

I've just come back from a weeks stay at Tamaimo Tropical with my boyfriend, and for the price we paid and it being only 3*, we didn't expect much, we just wanted a nice relaxing week away. We first arrived and despite there being many hotels around, we thought ours looked the nicest! Reception staff were all very helpful and spoke decent English so we were able to communicate with them easily. Our room was bigger than we thought it was going to be, with a kitchen which we didn't use as we were all inclusive, seating area, bedroom, bathroom and balcony. No, our room was not perfect, but we didnt expect it to be. Our fridge wasn't the coldest, and it leaked sometimes over night, but we didn't use it so it wasn't a big deal for us. The balcony doors didn't lock very easily and we struggled to find out how to lock, but the area is very safe so we didn't worry for long.
The pools are FREEZING but it was very refreshing because it get very hot at midday! However, be careful where you splash water because when we were there, a man dived into the pool and got a man a little wet, and he through a chair at him!
The drinks are very strong, we often asked for vodka and coke/lemonade and they filled the glass about half full of vodka before putting mixer in!
The food was good, there was always something to eat and we can both be fussy eaters. However, one day there was goat and rabbit, and so we helped ourselves to the kids buffet of chicken nuggets.
But overall, we discussed that we woul go back, it was great value for money and it was a great holiday for the two of us.

Got a late booking so wasn't too concerned about hotel but getting this was a bonus. self catering room was a good size for only 2 of us but had room for kids easily
Was busy round pool as said in other reviews but we had no problems getting sunbeds,anyway, the problem is with the idiots who think they can have them all day...
Good ,cheap supermarkets close by so don't bother weighing your case down with shampoo etc
Very hilly area so be prepared for aching legs after a couple of days...or get a cab from right outside hotel..excellent week !

We booked this as a "last minute" holiday and was a little wary after reading the reviews on here.

We arrived after 2am due to delayed flights and we were surprised that the night porter advised us that they has put food into our room for us. GREAT! It was a platter of cheese, ham and various salads but it was enough to keep hunger at bay till the morning.

Our room backed onto the main street, beside where the bus dropped us and it was quite noisy all the time between the bin men and also hotel staff in the mornings. The room itself was ok, it was clean and we only had 1 visitor (1 bug) but he made his exit via the toilet. All in all we were happy with the room. Also the rooms have paper thin walls and on our last night we heard a domestic with the people next door!

The food at the hotel wasn't that good. Breakfast was fantastic and it stayed the same every day which suited us. We ate at the buffet restaurant 1 night and when we went another night the options didn't appeal and also didn't smell too appealing. We also ate at the Italian restaurant (which you need to book) and that was ok. The Pool Grill was ok for a snack also.

The sunbeds nearest the pool were always taken early doors and there was towels on the same beds the whole week we were there. We were given a letter when we arrived and it stated clearly on it that towels shouldn't be put out before 7am but one couple had theirs on all the time. This wasn't a huge issue as there were plenty beds and we just moved them to suit where we wanted. We found the pools to be quite deep, there were shallower sections but I spent most of the time on my toes.

Hotel location was a out of it. When we booked excursions through our rep we always had to meet at ridiculously early times. Turns out that most of the things we wanted to do incurred at least an hour on a bus....... not ideal. Also there isn't much shops in Santiago, our friends enjoyed a day in Las Americas and were shocked at how little there was near us.

All in all this hotel wasn't too bad and I certainly wouldn't put anyone off. The food was the biggest let down but it wasn't big deal considering what we had paid.

Room Tip: There is a middle block of apartments at the hotel, definitely quieter than the rooms on the perimet...
