Hotel Meliá Salinas  

Tucked between two sandy beaches, this grand hotel comes with a designer pool and a first-class dining scene.

This deluxe hotel stands proud in the middle of tropical gardens designed by Lanzarote’s famous son, César Manrique. He designed the lagoon pool, too. You’ll find it right by one of the two beaches on the hotel’s doorstep.

The three stylish restaurants include two that are dedicated to fine dining. There’s plenty to do, too, from spa treatments to sports like tennis and windsurfing. After dinner, head to the bar for cocktails and live shows.

Highly recommended

Stayed here a week. Room was lovely with great sea view. Food good and varied. Staff all very helpful. Paid extra for the level with private pool and lounge. Only gripe being told we had one meal in posh restaurant which had to be night we arrived. We didn't check in til 6!More

Very comfortable Stay.

It was a nice Stay. The weather was not the best when we where there so we spent alot of time in the room. Comfortable bed is a Big plus! The only negative is probably that The Hotel is a bit old so the 5 star rating is a bit generous.More


Superb Service

I have reviewed this hotel previously and this time I should like to concentrate on the quality of the staff.They were superb and a real credit to their organisation and to the Spanish character. i must mention Alejo and Sebastian who were in charge of the dining room.Fabiola and Virginie in customer relations and Manuel in Reception. But having said this all of the staff contributed to our enjoyment of the holiday. Food at the buffet was extremely varied and almost universally good. The speciality restaurant,at a cost of 20 euros,for those on half board was a delight--canapes,sparkling wine,starter,main course,dessert together with limitless wine for this measly sum. As you will have surmised we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Salinas. Sandra Guervas,managing director,is to be congratulated on running such a well managed hotelMore

Would definitely return

We stayed here twice recently; I booked classic rooms each time but the first seems to have been a refurbished room on a par with their superior room category, though it was at the far end of the hotel (which was a long way from reception!). It was well nicely furnished in a trendy style, but it there wasn't much floorspace. The second room was furnished in the classic style which was perfectly adequate, and was a lot bigger. We had a kettles (though no coffee option or milk cartons). Both rooms had excellent views to the sea from large balconies with high walls either side for privacy and shelter, with trendy and comfortable patio furniture. The outside light was more for effect than to see by so it wasn't great for sitting out after dark. The bathrooms had twin basins and the toilet was totally separate which was great for practicality and privacy, though the space to get in and out of the shower-over-bath was a little cramped and the shower screen wasn't a great fit in one room. As always with the Melia chain, there was conditioner and body lotion amongst the toiletries so you barely need to take any pesky liquids away with you. The beds were extremely comfortable and we had a really good night's sleep - there is an additional door between you and your entrance-way which keeps any corridor noise to a minimum. Breakfasts were delicious and there was a nice outdoor space to use to get away from the hustle and bustle. Coffee was brought in a pot to the table but there was also the option to get your own from a machine, and also teapots of hot water and a variety of flavoured and herbal teas. The food selection was vast and included smoothies and pre-served yoghurt/granola/compote mixes in attractive glasses as well as the ability to help yourself from the larger pots. Pancakes were pre-cooked so a little stodgy, but there were chefs cooking fresh eggs etc. There were what seemed to be vegetable leftovers from dinner which was a little odd for breakfast but were delicious and made me wish we were staying half board. As the weather was a bit cool and as we were half board we didn't spend much time in the hotel but visited the island during the day and ate in Pueblo Marinero in the evening which was about a 15 minute walk along the seafront and had some quality bars and restaurants and a great atmosphere with markets and live music at the band stand. When we came back to the hotel it did seem very subdued atmosphere-wise, with the frog chorus in the lovely internal waterfalls being the main sign of life, but it made for a very peaceful stay. The internal area did seem a bit dark and dingy and I didn't see any bar areas that would offer views out or a sunlight-filled escape from windy weather during the day which I feel is necessary in the Canaries, so this, and the cold pool (and I am very hardy when it comes to cold pools!) were perhaps the hotel's main failings for me. Check-in and check-out were efficient and the staff told us all we needed to know and showed us all the way to our room, and we even got our last day's breakfast even though we were checking out before the restaurant opened. Although we didn't get our scheduled wake-up call, two trolleys were brought to our room before 5am with hot coffee, and a decent continental selection, which was a fantastic end to our holiday. If I come back to Lanzarote I'll definitely stay here again.More

This hotel needs a new management

The hotel is old and also reflect that when visiting. It would need a 'look over' both as a property and management wise. It has no spirit and 'can do' feeling and many places need to be fixed. The wind is very disturbing when you walk to your room - really unpleasant. I did not understand to which group this hotel should be marketed.... certainly not elderly people and not young ones or families. I'm sorry but you need to do someting in order to keep the customers. Positive was the 'Level' and the food in the evening.More
