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.

Good Service, great food and a beautiful hotel

Just come back from a week at this lovely hotel. We booked all inclusive in a Premium Sea View Room but I would have been just as happy to look out over the pool. The hotel is arranged around three circular courtyards which are planted up with tropical plants and have pools and bridges on the ground floor. This is a pleasant bit of green on Lanzarote which is otherwise quite arid. The lagoon pool was designed by Manrique and the King of Spain apparently has a smaller version. Very good accessibility throughout the hotel and pool - saw many people with mobility problems getting around quite happily. I have stayed in another Melia hotel in Cancun - now called the Paradisus and there are similarities in design. This hotel is smaller and on a more intimate scale. The food on the all inclusive is great value and very good quality. There are 3-4 cooking stations each evening doing show cooking - fresh meat and fish always on offer cooked while you wait, some evenings crepe suzettes or themed evening where Mexican, Italian or Oriental food was also on offer. Judging by local prices if you plan on drinking more than 3 alcoholic drinks per day plus and an evening meal you would be better off with the all inclusive and have all your poolside snacks and drinks into the bargain. Another reviewer commented that the coffee was bad. You need to find the coffee machine which is located in the restaurant next to the exit to the pool. It is self serve in the morning and produces the best cappuccinos, lattes etc. The rest of the day the coffees from the O Grill (free on the all inclusive) are the best - try them with Canarian Honey Rum as a chaser. We had a recently refurbished room and very comfortable beds. Best Wifi connection we have ever had in a hotel. The only part of the old décor remaining was the dark brown louvre doors which are a bit 70s but do the job. I don't agree that the hotel is just for older guests but in May you might get a bias that way and the hotel doesn't accept guests under 15 which for me was one of the attractions. The evening entertainment varied in quality but we had some amazing opera singers, a skilled solo saxophonist and the Fabulous Miss Cara and her dancers brought the house down on the Friday night. It seemed that nothing was too much trouble for the staff - the reception people were always friendly and well informed. We had good service in the Onix Lounge from Oscar and Ramon, Ricardo and their activities team kept us well amused. I would definitely recommend a stay to a friend.More

Nice stay but not a 5star

Hotel is very nice as first impression . Room we booked we didn't get and had to pay extra 400€ to upgrade to the level as standard rooms very very dated and leak water for some reason and sometimes in the dinning hall. I would stay here again tho as beside them issues the hotel and pool area were good . Food was good staff friendly and happy to help but watch out for mini bar bill More

Andreas M,

what a great hotel experience

I stayed here because I was visiting for a wedding and did not want to stay in a villa or apartment and frds were also staying here, I have never stayed or heard of the melia hotel chain before this visit. Some frds suggested the decor needed updating to my mind, the service and friendliness of the staff and their helpful demeanor were more than anything I would expect, they were polite but not in a workmanlike manner they actually made you feel like this is how they were and they were pleased to serve you. Anything asked of them even small little things nothing was to much trouble, I will be returning, and I would recommend this hotel anytime a truly great experience. I generally love the Spanish people for their friendly nature and they only enhanced their reputation in this experience for myself.More
