Best Location for the beach without the crowds
Posted Dec 30, 2016
We chose Melia Gorriones for the keep fit activities and were not disappointed. Raul, Jose, Alberto & Ingemar made Yoga, Pilates, Stretching, Powerbiking, Cardiobox and circuit classes very enjoyable. The fitness classes are much needed to counter over eating from range of dishes available at breakfast and dinner. Could have done with early evening stretching classes as well.
We even learnt to Zumba for the first time - great choreography
Heated 25m pool is great for laps and the Poolbiking, in addition to the 2 saltwater pools which are not heated. The weather was disappointing with rain, high winds and overcast days but there was enough to do with keep fit classes, heated lap pool and wading in the endless lagoons- bliss.
Staff are great, treat you like adults by leaving you to do your own thing. The Christmas meal was unbelievable, waitering so very efficient and drinks on the house.
Entertainment available in the evenings but rooms facing the reception area are not soundproofed from the evenings entertainment. Mosquitoes in rooms not sea facing was unexpected, had to keep air conditioning running on top of mosquito repellant plug-ins. No worries if you did not come with mosquito repellant, 2 excellent grocery shops available in the hotel - one on the 4th floor was open early morning to late evening even on Christmas day.
EXCELLENT holiday. Very happy to return again.
