Hotel Meliá Salinas  

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.

Excellent Hotel - Friendly Staff

Stayed here for a special birthday with a friend, we received upgrade to a junior suite and access to The Level services, from the moment of arrival we were treated like royalty. The hotel has a fantastic layout and décor is lovely, although there were clearly problems with leaks in the roof in various areas of the hotel, including the restaurant. it is an older hotel and has a few things looking tired and needing a bit of TLC, rear stairs could do with a tidy up and paint, as is the area around the pool, noticed white plastic bits around the poolside continually coming away, could be dangerous. Apart from those minor issues, the hotel is lovely, very couple orientated but as a pair of friends we enjoyed it. We opted for All Inclusive during our stay which is great value for money, my only complaint is that there is not enough options for vegetarians in the buffet restaurant, they seem to put ham and tuna in a lot of dishes that could be suitable for vegetarians, I have stayed in other less quality hotels which all have had a separate section for vegetarians, perhaps this is something the hotel could look at. It would not put me off returning to this hotel though and I am already planning to do so this year. Would recommend this hotel.More

Great stay

The hotel has 5 stars, but as many others on Tripadvisor states: it's more like 4 stars. However, it is what we were looking for, and it was not too expensive considering what we got out of our stay. The lobby and pool area were really a beauty to the eye. The hotel room (we had a standard room) was nice enough, but more worn (built 1998). The balcony faced the pool and we had a great view. Everything here was always very clean, and we saw no insects inside. The staff was very friendly and attentive, but not too pushy which was nice. Everyone always greeted us. The hotel had a nice gym and many types of activities, like yoga, pilates and cycling, that were free of charge. A very nice addition to our stay. The breakfast had a lot of choices - I have never seen anything like it - but after a few days I wish they had focused more on quality than quantity. But overall it was a good experience. It seamed they had a focus on healthy choices with an entire bar with juice, smoothies and freshly cut fruit at the breakfast buffet. This was very enjoyable. We enjoyed some days by the pool, and some on the balcony when the wind was to cold. Great to have this option. The pool area was, as mentioned, beautiful, and the staff was always there cleaning the pool (chlorine and salt water). The wifi was free of charge, but only worked some places in the room using a laptop or tablet. If we wanted to use our smart phones we had to go down to the lobby to get a signal. A little disappointing, but this probably varies from room to room. There were almost no kids here, some couples in there mid 20s (as us) and 30s, and many older couples. This made the stay very calm and just the kind of vacation we needed in January. Absolutely a hotel to recommend.More

Faded charm but old fashioned good service - we loved it!

Good service, better than the average tourist place...good sized rooms, pool and breakfast area. breakfast looked good but could have tasted better and if you go late, some items do not get replenished. If you book direct with the hotel and join their Melia programme you get a 15 euro account credit to spend in bars and restaurant at the hotel. My bloke has his hair cut and found that good value and high quality...he didn't book, but you might need to as its just one hairdresser. Entertainment is low key, non-intrusive and adequate. Gym is great, well equipped with views of the sea. Lounge seating comfortable inside and out. Rooms a bit faded but all in all you can see that this hotel is a traditional, high quality build with good sized rooms, all with sea view we think and comfy beds, large bathrooms. The staff make you feel special and welcome. Adults only and a mix of nationalities...no lager louts here! Cocktails could be better because they do some all inclusive packages and that may take the standard of drinks down a bit. Parking is limited but street parking outside never a problem. The hotel is close to Costa Teguise restaurants and bars, so good for a stroll and shop. Will return when in Teguise and would try another Melia. Thank you staff at Melia Salinas!More

Excellent & professional

We moved to this hotel after a poor experience at the Grand Teguise Playa, we needed a good hotel to rescue our New Year family holiday & that's just what we got...thankfully. The hotel is very professional, the staff courteous, the food excellent....all in all a great hotel to relax & enjoy Costa Teguise. It is a half a mile walk into the centre of Costa Teguise, either along the promenade or via the road. There is also a taxi rank outside the hotel. It has a fair sized pool, events each day, such as a paella demonstration, pool gym etc. there are tennis courts (free to use), free wifi, a small mini golf & the ability to hire motorised scooters, bikes etc.. There is also a small shopping centre close to the hotel that has a couple of bars & a great Italian restaurant.More

Good hotel in pleasant Lanzarote town.

We had a really nice two week stay at this hotel and from the outset, everything was good, from the welcome at reception with iced tea brought to you, to the checking out. The staff were very welcoming and greeted you very cheerfully and any enquiries we had were quickly dealt with in a friendly manner. Our room was on the fourth floor which had a stunning sea view with a massive double balcony and the room itself was big too with a huge bathroom with separate toilet and bidet, a mini bar and a bar also that was very helpful for preparing the copious drinks we had. Very generous with clean sheets, towels and toiletries and there was a turn-down service each night; very nice to come back to after an evening out. There were three restaurants that we used but two of them were only open one day a week and they were well-worth booking as the food and service were really good. The one that was open every day was where breakfast and dinner were served, these were buffet style; both were really good but we only had dinner here one night as there was so much more choice in the town itself. The hotel is showing signs of age, it is true but these are soon forgotten as the good points far outweigh them. The garden in the centre is stunning and a really nice feature. Overall I would recommend this hotel and would visit again if going to Costa Teguise. I know there have been a few comments about it not being what we would expect from five star hotels at home and that is true but the price more than makes up for this. We have stayed in five star hotels at home and abroad and they have worked out at between two and four hundred pounds a night without breakfast; this hotel is a fraction of the cost.More
