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.

This is a great mid-budget hotel in Lanzarote. Food stands out - it's delicious. We took out half board package and it was well worthy. The pool is clean & tidy. Gym is excellent. Specifically I would like to say thank you to the female bartender at the Beach Bar. Friendly yet courteous, knowledgable and commanding great customer service. Overall very happy. We upgraded to LEVEL for three days. The pool at the LEVEL is amazing. The range of snacks & drinks is a bit of a disappointment. I reckon they could create a much more sophisticated snack & drinks menu. It's a bit basic which goes against the LEVEL principles. Thank you for an amazing stay ;-)More

Choose "THE LEVEL" status

The Melia Salinas is not a real 5* except if you choose "THE LEVEL" status who will alow you to have access to a private area of the hotel accessible only with a black card (pool, bar ....), this is what they call "adults only", because once out of this area as Scrarlett said "why so many children ?????" from 0 to 15. Breakfast and dinner are in the common area, on restaurants, international food, same everyday so ..... Like everywhere in Spain, public beaches so ..... and very noisy.More

Quirky dress code

Lovely hotel. Good service. If at breakfast, get an omelette from Maria, they are fantastic. May need some refurbishment to keep 5*. Mixed bag of live acts Strange and inconsistent dress etiquette in that men are supposed to wear long trousers in the evening (that could have been made more clear on Thomsons' booking). So smart tailored shorts are not permitted at dinner, while a male guest wearing an F-word T shirt wasn't challenged :-)More

Melia Salinas

A really good 5 Star hotel that you can upgrade to the “Level” very spacious and excellent staff. Without doubt worth a visit the rooms are OK but not exceptional but overall good enough. The bar/entertainment area could be bigger and I wonder how well it copes in the summer periods. The staff in the restaurant could do with service training, the wine should always be tasted before serving, not sure our waiter understood that but received “on the job training” from us! We would certainly return, not too sure about the Safes being outside the rooms and are located in a room near reception but maybe that’s our streetwise English suspicion coming into play. Don’t hesitate book it!More

No way a 5* hotel

Arriving at melia from travelling from 3.30am on our 1st anniversary we were told our room would not be ready for 2 hours.we got our all inclusive bands and went to pool bar so when your all inclusive you expect all inclusive we ordered drinks which after drinking them to be told they would be added to our bill as you have to pay for bottle drinks! Which we wernt told.went bk to get our room which room was fine clean what u need . after sorting ourselves out we thought we would get a price to upgarde to level being our first anniversary to be told it wud be £60 per night I dont think so after paying £2500 for 1 week! After reading others reviews other people getting upgraded for free for special occasions etc 1st anniversaries bit unfair! Food- me and my husband are far from fussy we will try a lot but to be fair they only cater for spanish and find yourself having same to eat everynite. Entertainment absolutely terrible! Not worth sitting we went for a walk every night to get out of hotel.pool is absolutely disgusting scum bottles tab dumps floating never see them cleaning it.never see staff collecting cups etc around pool left there.lots of cat poo lying around. Shame as its a lovely set out.staff if your English your at the bottom off the list not interested at all spanish and Germans cant do enough for . especially maria on pool bad wouldn't entertain us never served us once and wouldn't no reason either we could be only ones at bar and she would look and snub us until someone else came to serve to say we didnt enjoy this hotel one bit and spoilt our 1st anniversary loved lanzarote but not this hotel shame looked forward worked hard and payed alot for this holiday. Only good thing we met lovely people who we will keep in contact with. More
