Cesar Manrique designed the pool area, the interior gardens and walls in the restaurant and the lobby. This flair full of flowers, plants and fountains leaves the impression of the Garden of Eden. For this reason, it is also called the Botanical Cathedral of the island. And most recently Hotel Museum due to all the works of art from different artists of the islands apart from Cesar Manrique, such as Pepe Damaso, Molez, Paco Curbelo, etc. As soon as you arrive at the Gran Melia Salinas, an icon of the Cultural Heritage of Lanzarote, you know you are in a very special place.

From the photographs this hotel looks good. The pool was large and interesting with a walk-in section - very user friendly if you are less than 100% mobile. The paths over the footbridges were finished in the local lava rock, uneven and not good in bare feet. Several fresh water showers around the pool and toilets close by. Towels provided for pool use. There is a well stocked bar beside the pool, lunchtime light meals can be ordered on the terrace. The only beer on tap is horrid CruzCampo lager. If you want a decent lager walk along the promenade into Costa Teguise, lots of restaurants and bars and all well maintained. The beach at the rear of the hotel has several small coves to choose from, one with umbrellas and loungers for hire - not cheap, one lounger and umbrella is 12 euros. Overall the hotel was very good, good food selection, good breakfasts. Help yourself to coffee from the machines at breakfast - the coffee is much better than the stuff brought to table in jugs. The hotel is 30 years old and attempts have been made to make it more accessible for disabled or those that have difficulty climbing steps, some issues remain however:- 1. The path to the main front entrance is 1.2m wide but some idiot has placed large flower planters along its length thereby making it only half a metre wide (not good using a pushchair) we saw most people using the road to walk along instead 2. The entrance road is worn out, dusty and must be resurfaced. Such a poor first impression at the main entrance. 3. No handrails to the main entrance steps. (Legal requirement in UK, but hey ho this is Spain) There is a narrow ramp around the corner. If you are able bodied or don't have young children you won't notice these things. But overall the hotel is very good - if they really want to be 4 star they have to start spending some money.

Very nice Cesar Manrique designed (why would I not like it?) hotel. Plentiful and varied buffet dinner with some items cooked to order in front of you. Varied Breakfast buffet including porridge but full English not quite the same as at home but omelettes cooked to order AND diet / no sugar items available so it suits me down to the ground!!

We have recently returned from the Melia Salinas and would like to thank the Management and ALL THE STAFF for making our holiday so memorable. We were greeted on arriving by Manuel on reception and congratulated and then shown to our top floor bedroom where we found a bottle of Champagne, chocolates, red rose and a card from the management - what a lovely welcome! The bedroom was overlooking the sea and sandy coves. Everything met our expectations and more -from the Management and all the staff, the gardens and all the beautiful flowers, the pool area, the tropical indoor garden, the food - so much choice - and the entertainment - every night there was something different especially our last night when it was the 'Three Tenors Tribute Act' and not forgetting Ramon, Cecelia and the rest of the entertainment team. Fabulous holiday we will return. p.s. we agree entirely with all the comments made by 'Debra, Swinton' Keep up the good work.

My partner and I have just spent a week at Melia Salinas (15th - 22nd June) and had such a wonderful stay.Once checked in we were helped with our luggage up to our room on the second floor by a friendly and smiling porter and then left to settle in.On the table in our room were two lovely messages from the hotel wishing me a happy 30th birthday and 2 year anniversary of being together with my partner along with a bottle of cava in an ice bucket! A lovely gesture which we enjoyed very much. We found the hotel to be really clean and the staff obviously work hard to maintain the grounds and interior. We paid extra on one of the days to use the level and enjoyed sunbathing by the pool which turned out to be the only time we actually managed to get a sun lounger due to towels being left out on sun loungers around the main pool.We think that this needs to be addressed as it is unfair that people miss out due to the selfishness of other guests. The entertainment in the evening was good but we felt that it caters more towards the more mature couples so we headed out most evenings along the beach to the numerous bars. The food was lovely and the desserts were a particular favourite!! We will definitely be back for another visit and we're already wishing we were back there :-)
