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.

Not a five star by any means!!
We had a week in this hotel in July 2015. The hotel is big and location is good. However, the food is very repetitive every day at the buffet. The resturant is understaffed. At lunch one person would be juggling between cooking the fresh meat and doing pasta. As a result, this results in long waiting time and ques. The toilets in the hotel where ever you go really smell. Iam talking about the ladies don't know about the men's. There is only one toilet in the lobby with two cubicles and most of the time has a distinctive smell. The Maria resturant menu where you can eat for one night has a fixed menu with really horrible and dull choices. All other resturants you have to pay for as well as the spa. No bar is open all day in the lobby. Only snack bar so if you are spending time in the lobby, you have to go out to the snack bar for drinks. The entertainment is the poorest I have seen in all my stays and we go on holiday twice a year. Evenings are dull and boring in the lobby. More

Just returned from this hotel after staying for a week and wishing now we stayed a bit longer, loved everything about the place totally relaxing.!! Pool was the best never busy, aqua aerobics at 12 noon every day or aqua bikes for those keeping fit. Pool was salt water and a little cool but this was soothing after sunbathing in the very hot sun, hotel is right on the beach and very very windy but is nice as it cools you down. Reception area lovely and bright leading to centre of hotel which as waterfalls and trees and at night time you can hear frogs croaking little different to say the least. We went half board, breakfast buffet which had so much choice which was fantastic, evening buffet which was the best one island with starters and one big island with so much choice, one corner cooking fresh fish of different choices, another corner cooking meats chicken, veal, chops,kebabs,sausages, then other foods on the island, they had different themes on each night , tapas, Mexican, Italian ect very very good.!! You don't need to carry cash as you sign a receipt when you order drinks then pay for these at the end of your stay, bill only came to Â£135 which wasn't bad as we had drinks with our meal then in the oasis bar afterwards whilst watching the entertainment every night. We had a standard bedroom which was wonderful very quiet with a view looking over the level pool which is a separate pool which you pay extra 30 euros each per day if you want to go to this pool if you have a junior suite or grand suite this pool is included. Rooms are cleaned every day and towels changed everyday along with bedding if needed very clean hotel 10 out of 10 along with free sunbed towels which you can also change daily. Will definitely be back usually go self catering but this hotel as converted me to this type of holiday so so relaxing thankyou Melia Salinas for a great holiday.!!!More

Fantastic stay at a lovely hotel
Just returned from a lovely 4 night stay at the beautiful Melia Salinas hotel. We had a wonderful sea & pool view room on the third floor (314). The room was fairly small but adequate for two people and the bed and pillows were very comfy. It was very clean and had a mini bar and a kettle. There was a safe in the room which was free and it was a good size. Great view of the pool, beaches and mountains and the balcony was very sheltered from the wind. Great pool area and the sun loungers were really comfortable and there were always some available albeit not right by the pool side as these were always reserved with towels. Why people feel the need to do this when there was always some available is annoying particularly when they don't bother using them until lunchtime. The pool was lovely and warm and it was very relaxing in the hot tubs enjoying the sea view. We ate breakfast at the hotel which was always hot and well stocked with a good choice of food. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the hotel gave us a bottle of cava and some chocolates which was a really nice gesture. We ate at the Esencia restaurant one evening, the service was fantastic and the two waitresses were very polite and courteous and made our anniversary meal very special. Having been to Lanzarote 8 times previously usually staying in Playa Blanca we were unsure about Costa Teguise but fancied a change and are so glad we decided to stay at this hotel as the location was perfect. It was only minutes away from the beach and a 5 minute walk to the main squares restaurant and cocktail bars. Really great atmosphere in the evenings and a great choice of restaurants at a reasonable price. All the staff at the hotel were very friendly and efficient and a credit to the hotel.More

Best food ever
Amenities in this hotel could be better by our standards. What made our stay outstanding was its cuisine. We have been traveling to many places globally but fish menu, variety and freshness are hard to beat. Whoever comes to Melia you must try tuna or swordfish. The best one is always made by Luigi who cooks that tongue liking and serves plates with a smile. More
Sun and Sports
The hotel was great, we were mostly suntanning or taking part in the sportive activities (yoga, pilates, soft gym, spinning, aqua bike, ...). The pool is definitively above average and has numerous trees and other sight blockers which make you feel comfy and make you forget that there are other people lying close to you. In addition the near beach bar provides some relaxing ambiance sound. There are 4 sports lessons (each ~35min) each day and the activities team is charming and professional. The restaurant "Spices" provides a theme buffet (repeats every week) which contains quite some variety, although the Asian day is a bit disappointing as not many dishes are not really Asian. The room provides everything you need and you get one free bottle of water a day and some sparkling wine as a welcome present.More
