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.

happy holidays

I had very nice stay! The food I chose (fruits/vegetables, fish/meat) delicious! Nice hotel staff and fun activities like Latin dance and aqua bike.. as I was not on party holidays I enjoyed the evening program and relaxing time, over all, very classy. Also glad the were no children during my stay. I mean I love kids, but I really enjoyed relaxation.More

Salinas - Great hotel on the beach

A lovely peaceful hotel ( albeit the building itself is a little tired) on the beach. Friendly smiling staff who are always ready to help in any way they can, make staying there a really pleasurable chillaxing experience. Have been there 5 times and will go back again.More

Nice hotel overall

Hotel is about 20 minutes from the airport. We went there half board and booked a sea view room. the weather was lovely (hot) with a constant breeze. Pros - When we arrived at the hotel, we were welcomed with glasses of cava, and up-graded to a grand suite, a very lovely surprise and nice start to the holiday! The room was fabulous, with 2 rooms, a mini kitchen, a dressing room, 2 bathrooms (one jacuzzi on the balcony and one inside, plus a shower), very clean and the bed was huge and very comfy with nice pillows. Toiletries provided are good and include Shampoo, shower gel, conditioner and body milk. They also provide robes, slipers and beach towels. I've seen reviews saying the A/C was loud, but in our room it was fine. Maybe not cool enough as I did not manage to set it lower than 19 degrees. There is a safe in the dressing room and a mini bar in the kitchen but nothing is free. The view on the pool and sea was lovely, although if you like going to bed early ask not to be near the lounge bar as the music goes on until 23h30. The food at the buffet is very good, there is a lot of choice including fresh fish and meat they cook in front of you. I've been to loads of 5 star resorts and in my opinion the food is very acceptable. For breakfast there is everything you'd need. Haven't tried the other restaurants. The staff is very nice in the restaurant and reception, premises clean and tidy and there are a lot of activities going on during the day (yoga, pilates, aqua bike etc..) and live music. They also have tennis, mini golf, ping pong tables and watersports. There is a wellbeing centre offering massages, prices start at 37 euros for 25 minutes. The beach is nice with fine golden sand and the water is clear and clean. The pool is very clean and filled with sea water. The hotel has a policy about not leaving towels on seats to reserve them which I thought was very good. A member of staff puts stickers on towels to remind customers who left their towels that they can't do this but unfortunately, people do not respect this 'rule' and put their towels before breakfast so by 9am you won't be able to sit by the pool (althought there are generally seats left a bit further). A short walk from the hotel takes you to shops and restaurants. There are plenty. There are mini supermarkets and a pharmacy as well. Cons - We took the half board option and the biggest issue for us was that drinks were not included at diner which we found very disappointing and unusual. if you want water, wine or beer you have to pay for it. It was so hot you'd expect they'd provide water for free during the day like in most resorts, but no. It turns out the difference to pay to be all inclusive would have been more expensive than spending the extra for drinks so it worked out ok for us but if you plan to eat 3 times a day, drink coffees, soft and alcoholic drinks, and plenty of water you might want to consider the AI option. The beach is very windy and you have to pay for deckchairs (8 euros) which I was not happy about and is unseen in a five star. Overall we are very satisfied with our choice and would definitely recommend this hotel, but perhaps all inclusive would have given us peace of mind.More

Superb hotel

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastically relaxing stay here to celebrate her birthday. Yes, the decor is a little dated but with the glass half-full we were able to appreciate the amazing architecture. We upgraded to a junior suite and took advantage of the VIP area which gave us access to the private pool and other amenities - all of which were excellent. The staff were friendly and welcoming throughout the hotel and the buffet food is a million miles beyond standard buffet fare - fresh meat, fish and fruit in huge varieties and in great quantity. The chefs at the cooking stations took care to cook your food the way you asked for it and we were delighted with what was on offer. Outside of the hotel is a bit cheap and naff. Normally we like to go and experience the local "night-life" but unless you're into the Red Lion pub and egg & chips you're much better off hanging around the hotel or going farther afield to experience what Lanzarote has to offer. The all-inclusive is excellent value for money if you're looking to pig out and enjoy the good range of alcohol. The clientele are definitely of the older set (we're in our 30s and were clearly outnumbered!) but that made our stay only more peaceful which was exactly what we needed on this occasion. The night-time entertainment was a little bit cabaret but was fun and inoffensive. My stay here has made me keen to check out other Melia hotels for sure.More
