Tucked between 2 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 2 beaches on the hotel’s doorstep.
The 3 stylish restaurants include 2 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.
Very well located. The sea views are really amazing, as well as the gardens inside the hotel (very unique). The room had very good size. The food was good, and the service too. Ideal for relaxing holidays, and a lot of things to see in the island (volcanos, caves, unique landscape)

Disappointing return to Melia Salinas
After a pleasant holiday here in June we decided to return this month and we were disappointed by the return visit. we queued at reception for 20 minutes to check in. reception were completely unaware we were return visitors so clearly there is no acknowledgement of loyalty. our room wasn't ready and we waiting two and half hours. when we returned to reception for keys there was still long queues and if we had rejoined a queue it would have taken another hour.
when our room was finally available we were left to find our own way to the room. to our disappointment our room looked nothing like the brochure or the room we had during our first visit. watch out the brochures don't show these rooms!!! after such a long wait were too fed up and exhausted to complain immediately but we made our minds up to enjoy our holiday but not to return next year.
the room was old fashioned worn and tired. one of the bedside lamps was broken. no tea/coffee making facilities that we had during our last stay. the balcony had dirty marked furniture with synthetic grass covered in birds feathers and was never cleaned - so we opted not to venture out on to the balcony not that there was a view it was completed obstructed by trees full of noisy birds most of the time.
I complained to reception later in the evening about the waiting time, the poor standard room (3 star at best) and the broken lamp. the following day we found a letter of apology with a bottle of cava (which we could drink chilled from the bar as part of our all inclusive) in our room. no effort to change our room. 4 days later the lamp still hadn't been mended so I had to speak to reception again.
the upside of this hotel is the staff are lovely, the food is good albeit limited choice, the inclusive drink choices is very good and the evening entertainment is of very good standard compared with other hotels we have been too. wifi is much improved too. I could FaceTime family during this visit which I couldn't in jun due to poor connection,
we also noticed on our return visit the hotel was much busier, the pool area wasn't maintained to a standard you might expect from 5 star and the very very loud music by the pool everyday at 11 for an hour sometime two hours to accommodate a dozen people. choose your sun beds carefully many of the sunbeds are shaded by parasols and trees and one day the beds we had were in the shade ALL day.
I suspect that the hotel efforts is focussed on the guests who upgrade to the level who probably do get a 5 star experience but what the hotel should remember is we have all paid for a 5 star experience and that is exactly what we are all entitled to receive. we shouldn't be expected to pay more when we arrive. we didn't get a 5 star experience which is what we paid for and expected and therefore we shall not be returning.More

The Level was perfect
My husband and I have just arrived home after one week at this hotel in Costa Teguise. We chose an all inclusive break and decided we liked the look of the level so upgraded to a grand suite when we booked.
We were not disappointed it was perfect. We had a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom with jacuzzi bath...the biggest I have ever seen, and a toilet/ shower room. It was immaculate. Our beds were turned down every evening with a delicious chocolate left on our pillow.
Entertainment was fantastic, the best we have seen in a long time.
The only down side to the hotel is the dress code at dinner time, they don't seem to have any, apart from gents not wearing shorts, but anything goes really...especially denims. Personally my husband and I like to dress for dinner, but found most of the clientele at this hotel don't seem to have a dress code at all and anything goes. Which is a pity really at such a nice hotel. I don't think you would be disappointed if you booked to stay at the level! but unfortunately I don't know what any of the other rooms are like.More
Lovely holiday !!
AMAZING holiday ! Just returned from this hotel just over a week ago now and miss it so much ! From reading the reviews we were a bit worried as they are very mixed however don't let this fool you, maybe we were just lucky but everything seemed to go very smoothly. Our room was on the top floor (4) with a beautiful sea view and the room was spotless.
The pool area is lovely! However it seems like people must wake up at mad hours to put there towels down to reserve a sunbed. Me and my boyfriend were not going to wake up early just for that. Luckily there were still a few sunbeds left when we went down to breakfast (9:15) any later then that you'll probably not get one ! I defiantly recommend the aqua activities as they were so fun ! Also look out for the mini golf and bowling bit which is very hidden !
There are so many things to do in costa tequise such as the volcanoes, caves, markets and rancho park was amazing ! Most defiantly avoid aqua park it was AWFUL !! Cost about Â£25 to get in and we only stayed about an hour. The Sunday market is a must !
As me and my boyfriend only chose bed and breakfast we were so happy to see so many different restaurants a 10 minute walk from the hotel !! You have to go to oscars restaurant it's a 5 minute taxi drive â¬3, we ended up going there three time as the food and service was so amazing !!
Overall had such an amazing stay would recommend to anyone :) More
Our room was on 4th floor overlooking the main pool and the sea, so great view. We did ask about upgrades to a level suite but there were non available for the full duration of our stay.
Therefore cannot comment on the service/level pool etc but found the basic sea view room adequate if not rather spartan.The room was clean with a flatpack style white unit housing the fridge and kettle. Plus side was free of charge fridge, kettle and safe which was a pleasant surprise. Were magazines in room but all spanish ones! Lack of English speaking channels on tv, think we only had Sky news.The bed was really uncomfortable & hard so asked at reception for a mattress topper. We got back to the room later that day to find a duvet dumped on the bed! We had to put this under the bottom sheet ourselves which I was a bit surprised about. Helped a bit but not much, my husband has a back problem so he said he'd rather sleep on the sun loungers which were more comfy!
The main pool area is very nice, the beds with sun shades get snapped up quickly. Had a chuckle over the 3 so called "luxury" double bed sun lounging things they had, where the mattresses were up on white badly painted wooden pallets, thought they could've invested in some sort of valence to cover them. Was lovely and peaceful by the pool until the keep fit brigade came along blasting out music for a few people to excercise in the pool, most of the keep fit staff seemed more interested in showing off. We groaned when our peace was shattered by them. The evening entertainment was dire, one young male singer we heard was along the lines of a bad kareoke singer. Took ages to get served in the main bar as well, you could stand by the bar and get completely ignored as the bar staff seemed more interested in sorting the waitresses orders even though you had been waiting longer. Restaurant was great for breakfast, really enjoyed that. didn't eat there in the evening as prefered to go out (Chimenea about 5 mins walk away by Robinsons bar was really good, especially the Chateaubriand) Beautiful gardens in the centre of hotel, spoilt a bit by the silly plastic fish stuck in the water. Overal though had a lovely break, clean hotel and extra enjoyable due to no children being at the hotel. Generally would say the hotel was a 4 star but could do with some tweaking, may be higher if on the level. Costa Teguise was a bit too quiet for us so dont think we would return.More
