We have just returned from our first visit to this island and this hotel and can summarize the whole thing with two words – NOT 5*!!! Not even close… If you have never been to a 5* hotel you might find it ok (?) but don’t think for a second that this is what a 5* should be. Even the...

We spent here 2 weeks around Christmas and New Year last year. Generally it was good, quiet and green area around. The problem there was blowing wind 10 days of 14. We still went to the pool every day, but that wasn't very cosy. After coming home I was checking on forcasts regularly comparing San Agustin to Puerto Rico and...

Have just returned from a short break at this hotel, and we were not disappointed. I have read some of the other recent comments, and feel they are unfair. Yes the rooms could do with an up date, however everything is spotlessly clean, something all the Melia hotels I have stayed at have in common. The pool area is designed...

Just returned from a weeks break and had to write to explain how disappointed we were with our time spent at the Tamarindos. Firstly the tired and dated decor and threadbare carpets need replacing.

We have stayed in the Melia many times in the period 1990-2004, the last time was 2004. We were surprised that little has changed.
