5* Melia Tamarindos Hotel Gran Canaria
Gran Canaria Resorts

5* Melia Tamarindos Hotel Gran Canaria (Gran Canaria Resorts)-

"A lovely place where to stay."


Location:
the hotel is located in San Agustin (20 mins south of the airport - or a 30 euros taxi ride). It's in a peaceful and quiet area just opposite to San Agustin Beach.

San Agustin Beach is not as large nor as beautiful as its neighboring Playa del Ingles or Maspalomas, but it is quite nice.

You can actually walk to these two beaches along the promenade. It's about an hour walk to Maspalomas' impressive sand dunes and 40 mins to Playa del Ingles. But it's an easy walk, don't worry!

Facilities:
Some decades ago (in the 70's and 80's) this was a very elegant 5* hotel. But now it does look a bit tired and slightly outdated. Especially, if you compare it to more modern hotels. It lacks many added luxuries you would expect from a 5*.

Unfortunately the pool area closes at 6pm…which can annoying in summer.

There's also spa and a Jacuzzi. But you do have to pay extra for these. You can also get a massage and the prices are pretty much like in the UK.

The bar has live lounge music every night, and it finishes at 11 p.m. If you're looking for entertainment though (bars and clubs) you are better off going to Maspalomas area. San Agustin is very quiet, which is great if you just want to relax.

Food:
The breakfast is really really good. You'll probably wake up excited every morning knowing you'll be having it soon.

Note: All-Inclusive

If you do book All-Inclusive, remember that food and drinks end at 12 noon. So if your flight is at 21:00 you'll have to pay for everything you eat and drink until then.

If you're not all-inclusive, dinner and drinks are expensive at Melia Tamarindos Hotel Gran Canaria. So it's better eating out, as restaurants are just 5 mins away. There's a good Greek restaurant inside the nearby shopping centre called The Greek Taverna.


Rooms:
Rooms are very clean and tidy. However, it is true they do need redecorating. The deco and furniture is a bit dated.
