“Nice apartment on all inclusive resort”
Reviewed 4 March 2013 for a stay in January 2013

This apartment is in the Tortuga resort on Sal.
The apartment is comfortable, and very well furnished.
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing week in the sun.

“fantastic!!!”

We have recently returned from a two week stay at Melia and we privately rented a two bedroomed apartment for our stay. The hotel reception were very warm and welcoming and check in was swift and efficient. Hotel porters will if required escort you and your luggage to your room ( may wait a little if busy).
The apartments were fantastic and our was very well equipped, we did make friends with families who travelled with Thomsons and they also had well equipped rooms.
The pools are of a good size and the main pool has a swim up bar, there are always loungers available and the hotel provide pool towels as part of the package. We did occasionally encounter no towels but some guests tended to keep hold of them instead of returning them at the end of the day. Beaches are a bit rocky in places but you have stunning views across the coast and ocean.
The main restaurant does get quite busy at peak points in the day but it's what you can expect, staff do try their best to get to you as quick as possible. We did have to go and get drinks from the hotel bar on a few occasions but it was no major drama. There are different theme nights every day with a fair selection of food. If you enjoy fish, you will be very pleased!! In addition to the normal menu, they also have a pasta station which gets extremely busy. I would have recommended the kitchen have two stations to cater for this as you did have to queue a long time for this. Because of this, we did go into town quite often to try different restaurants and cuisines. I feel that at the evening meal is the only aspect I was disappointed with. There are a selection of different eateries within the complex, offering great snack and lunches throughout the day. Breakfast was excellent but again an additional omelette/pancake station would be useful in the main restaurant, but food was plentiful and delicious.
The bar service was good a little slow at times but friendly. Plastic glasses are used in all outlets apart from the restaurant and main hotel bars, which is completely understandable.
Cleaning services were very through and left everything to a very high standard.
Evening entertainment is primarily more orientated to adults but had some fantastic acts ranging from local musicians to traditional dance groups.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay and returned completely relaxed and refreshed and we will definitely return again.

“Everything we hoped for and so much more”
Reviewed 16 January 2013 for a stay in November 2012

The apartment offers so much more comfort than just having a hotel room - it's spacious and very tastefully furnished with everything you could possible need on holiday. It's in a perfect location within the complex, it was so pleasant to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and do some people watching instead of overlooking an empty space or somebody else's wall.
You also feel completely part of the hotel complex even if you do not partake in the all inclusive choices.

Liked best: The location within the complex. You feel as though you are in a detached apartment so no noisy neighbours and no shared balcony
Liked least: Onsite shop and closest supermarket not very well stocked and could be quite expensive
