Arrived quite late as 1hour delay in Manchester, lovely meal was left out for us and was really enjoyable. Were upgraded by Juan on reception to a pool view which also gave a sea view. The beds were comfortable and made up every day. Lovely smelling products in the bathroom, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. Also hand wash and hand cream. The hotel wasn’t full and as had timed meal times, it was always comfortable and never packed. There are 4 pools and plenty of sun beds. The gardens are lovely. The beach is massive and very flat, was aware there was a lagoon but was completely shocked when it filled nearly the whole beach. The spa is reasonably priced and had a tension massage and facial, both very good. Would recommend especially if you want a complete relaxing holiday. The bar & snack bar staff were really helpful and made you feel special. Carmen in the restaurant went out her way to ensure the food was cooked to everyone’s individual taste.
First visited in 2015 and came back on a package May 2022 for third visit. I have had a brilliant holiday. The food is really good and the complex is spotless. I have been going to another chain next to airport for past five holidays due to travel time from airport but I won’t be going again. My room has an excellent sea view and pool view although it’s a standard room. I actually can’t praise the hotel enough, if you want a fantastic beach and beautiful surroundings this is the place to go. Staff are all courteous and unobtrusive and I actually couldn’t find fault with anything. I am only sorry that I hesitated coming back before because of the journey time from airport but I won’t hesitate again. Everything about Melia is class.
Falls short at every turn
Absolutely disappointing experience after expecting so much. Our party consisted of 5 adults friends, all inclusive booking. All inclusive option does not include water. The little store to purchase water from is closed at least once a week, and there's a "tough luck" attitude as you're trying to figure out where to get water from. No meal service includes beverage service. I've never stayed anywhere where this was considered normal - you have to help yourself to both the food and drinks. Meal service was staggered to avoid large crowds - we chose the last slot for all days except one. Seems like they run out of some options by the end (food was the same every night, so you could tell what was missing and/or cold). Out of the 4 nights we were there, we had no idea there was night entertainment on day 1. Day 2 had cancelled musicians, with no notice so we just sat there expecting something to happen the whole time. Day 3 was a full clown show geared towards children, nothing for adults. Day 4, had an acceptable acrobatics show, something like this should've been done daily. There is no poolside activities or entertainment. In fact, there isn't even music at the poolside. All inclusive, but you have to pay for a mojito? I can't even say more to that. Resort offers no excursions and no direction towards any activities. The most fun we had was when we left the resort. If you're a Melia club member you get exclusive access to certain areas. Don't ask me how to become a member, I only know that I am not allowed to go there because I am not. Honestly, expect to be nickeled and dimed to death and still be left feeling like you're missing out.
Excellent week at Melia Fuerteventura
Stayed at The Melia in March this year, and what a great experience it was. After Covid lockdown etc. we were anxious about going abroad again but all went well with some restrictions still in place re’ masks being required in restaurants etc. but this was not an issue. The hotel is in a superb location with miles of sandy beaches right on the doorstep. We were all inclusive, and the range of food and drinks on offer was excellent, and available when needed. All staff we encountered were very pleasant and seemed genuinely pleased that you are there and the whole property is extremely well maintained and spotlessly clean. There is entertainment available in the evenings,and you can also find a quiet spot in the main adult only bar if you prefer. We opted for a panoramic sea view room which was on the 8th floor and was perfect for us. We liked it so much that we have already booked a return trip in June. Five stars….
switch off break
Ideal time to go, nearly the end of Covid restrictions so fairly quiet, mask wearing was compulsory in the hotel and it was good to see everyone abide by the rule. Staff had time for you and everything was exactly the same as it was 10 years previously! We were on an inclusive package which was excellent.
