Could do so much better
Hotel had lots of potential but sadly not realised. At check-in they wanted the paper "voucher" which we did not have as it was booked while "in transit" but eventually they linked our e-mail confirmation to their system so that they could print it out - all a bit of a faff in 21st century. The room was pleasant with a limited sea view from the balcony. On the first day there was a bottle of water supplied for tea/coffee making but this was not replenished on the second day. A water mark left by a glass on the desk surface wasn't cleaned away, yet I was able to remove it with a tissue and some water! The food at the evening buffet was plentiful and choice was good but everything that should have been hot was lukewarm at best which detracted from the experience and the staff in the restaurant good benefit from some "charm schooling". Breakfast could have been very good but again eggs, omelettes, pancakes were cooked in batches and left to go cold - no wonder there is a microwave in the buffet area - it may have originally been for reheating baby food but sadly it was the only way to make the food palatable. A fire alarm went off one afternoon while we were there and when we reported to reception and asked if it was a drill the receptionist just smiled saying "I know the alarm is ringing!" We stayed in the low season and most other guests seemed to be on golfing breaks, but the hotel itself could do so much better as the facilities are there but service needs improving.

The Hotel is in a very good position close to the beach in Isla Canela. We had a superior room on the 4th floor with a good view of the sea. The room size was ok but not spacious as was the balcony, however it was very clean. Room facilities for a 4 star hotel were poor - no dressing gowns, no hotel information folder, soap shampoo etc in wall dispensers and little else. The breakfast buffet was very good with plenty of choice, we didn't have dinner at the hotel as we prefer to eat at local restaurants as it is usually better and less expensive than hotel buffets. There is an Italian restuarant in the hotel but no other choice. Bar drinks were reasonably priced but service was very slow at times. The pool and outside areas are nice and well maintained. Overall we enjoyed our stay but felt that one week was long enough.

Re-visited
Our seventh visit to The Melia Atlantico - it didn't disappoint but not sure what 'The Level' is trying to provide other than a them and us situation. A great place for a holiday if you aren't expecting lots of shops and entertainment. Fabulous beach which is never crowded. Some good bars and restaurants around the marina and short bus ride to Ayamont. Worth a visit.
