So when you read these reviews you always get people moaning about various aspects and praising various aspects. It's an all inclusive resort therefore its trying to be all things to all men (and women). There will always be things you like and don't like in this scenario! We had a great holiday - the beaches are lovely, the island...

What a truly awful hotel. Avoid at all costs! Thomson should not market this as a 5 Star Platinum Resort. I would say it barely makes a 3! The management and the majority of the staff at the Melia Tortuga have a terrible attitude problem. Staff seem to be unable to smile even if they cannot fully understand the language...

Stayed at the Melia Tortuga in September 2016 for a week. Had a lovely holiday. Very relaxing. The food, for an all inclusive was pretty good. People have to realise that Cape Verde have to import most of their food, this hotel is not a London 5 star, but tries very hard to meet everyone's requirements. The hotel was very...

Fantastic time away with the family everyone was very friendly. The downside was we found a cockroach next morning we arrived as we were ground floor. The food was ok being all inclusive but pretty similar everyday and wouldn't recommend the Italian as there was not much choice on the menu and the waitresses were too busy with everyone else...

Before we went we read many bad reports but can only assume that they stopped at a different resort. The food was really good especially for all inclusive.
