Catalogued between excellent Hotels with the charm of its own. The architect Fernando Higueras and the famous Lanzarotenian artist, Cesar Manrique, created the plans for this spectacular building. 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.

My wife and I have just returned from a week long half board stay during the last week of February 2015 at the Melia Salinas hotel in Costa Teguise. We had read some mixed reviews about the hotel, so didn’t really know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised. Yes, it does need a bit of a cosmetic make-over in certain areas but all things considered it’s not sufficient to spoil your stay. Our only other observation was that you need to be a bit of a gymnast to manoeuvre yourself in and out the bath around quite a large pivoting shower screen. Fair to say, the bathroom could have been a bit better. Outside there’s a lovely (unheated) pool, fantastic views across the beach along with stacks of sun loungers scattered around the very tidy grounds. The place was very clean and tidy, all the staff were very accommodating, polite and happy to provide. We used the restaurant for both breakfast and evening meals and the quality of food for a self-service buffet affair was very good. We didn’t use the bar area, so can’t comment, but it was very popular with some guests. As an adult only hotel and with us being 52 years old we were surprised to find ourselves very much at the younger end of the age range of guests. It didn’t provide us with any issues, as we socialised away from the hotel, but the with vast majority of guests being of older years, this may also be a consideration for some people. Yes, we felt it was money well spent and can recommend the hotel, but here’s the important bit - we hadn’t been to Lanzarote before. We did some considerable research and chose Costa Teguise as it marketed itself as a more quieter alternative to Playa del Carmen etc. Despite it being a purpose built resort, there’s pretty much everything you’d need, from plenty of bars and restaurants through to boutique shops and lovely sandy beaches all within walking distance of the Melia Salinas. But be warned! Costa Teguise also markets itself as the Wind Surfing capital of Lanzarote! – what do you need to wind surf?, plenty of wind!, and it’s relentless. We had completely missed this aspect. Okay it was late February, but we hadn’t expected patio doors to our balcony to rattle all night, or a howling noise through the vent in the bathroom. Given the time of year we put it down to just bad luck, but in speaking with locals they told us it’s constantly windy all year round. So if your holiday activities require a plentiful supply of onshore wind, you’re in for a treat. But if you’re like us and want to sit out in the sun and not spend your days trying to get out the wind as we did, I’d suggest looking further south down the island. Lovely hotel, fantastic staff, nice resort but the ever present wind spoilt it.

My friend and I just returned from Lanzarote we were not actually staying at this hotel but we went there most evenings for the entertainment as it was absolutely fantastic and we asked if we could look round a room as we may stay there next time we come to Lanzarote and they were very obliging.

My partner and I spent 2 wonderful weeks at the Melia Salinas Hotel, a lovely 5-star hotel in Costa Teguise. Although we have travelled widely and stayed in many wonderful hotels, we were looking forward to enjoy the Melia Salinas experience on our first visit to Lanzarote as our winter break. We had heard before about the Melia hotels but had not had an opportunity to enjoy their hospitality. At our arrival after a long journey from London, we were greeted warmly by a friendly face at the front office. After a quick processing of our booking we were delighted to hear that the hotel was offering us an upgrade to one of their premium roomx. Our smiles said it all. It was the best start to our holidays. The interior of the hotel resembled an art gallery with paintings and art objects everywhere. Sumptuous gardens, hanging plants, palm trees and water falls inside the centre of the building with the sky as rooftop. The overall effect made it impossible not to admire the design and structure in front of you. Our room was on the 4th floor, overlooking one of the pools and the sea. The room was spacious, tastefully decorated and had many of the amenities that we have come to expect from a good quality hotel, such as bathrobes, slippers, fridge, coffee facilities and beach towels. The room was kept clean and tidy with towels and bed sheets changed frequently by our two dedicated hotel maids that we met daily during our stay. The room offered an intimate open-air balcony furnished with 2 chairs and a table. The views from there were amazing. We spent many hours in the evenings relaxing outside with a glass of cava while watching the windsurfers ride the waves in the distance. We loved the feeling of infinity when gazing out to the ocean. Breakfast was a delightful experience. The restaurant offered a good selection of different types of bread, fruits, cereals, cakes, hot and cold food and many cheeses together with meats and churros. Given that range of options, we made our duty to taste a little bit of everything during our stay. My partner enjoyed particularly the selection of cupcakes, fresh omelettes and cheeses and I looked forward to my selection of hams, vegetables and Spanish tortilla all wash down with a glass of cava. The freshly cut fruits and the variety of smoothies on display also attracted our attention. Everything looked colourful, tasty and nicely presented. The waiters were polite, friendly and attentive and the atmosphere in the room felt very relaxed. With regards to the entertainment, we found the evening acts that we watched of high quality, full of energy and enthusiasm. We were particularly impressed with Trio Nova and singers Rodrigo and Noel. They were great performers who knew how to encourage people to dance. As for the animation team, the hotel has a wonderful group of individuals, all of them amazing in their own way. Ramon, their manager has a wonderful and friendly personality, full of energy and Latin fizz. His smile, good looks and dance moves made him a favourite presenter with the female audience. His mastery of the salsa and merengue dancing showed us a little of his Cuban temperament. Next we have the lovely Jessica, a lady of many talents including 3 languages who made my Spanish lessons very enjoyable. Her approach was informative, educational and very pleasant. My partner and I enjoyed very much her demonstrations of the Canary Islands’ food and drinks. We learned how to make paella, pina colada and sangria. I came back home with a bottle of Rum miel just for “medicinal” purposes. Jessica kindly provided us also with some useful information of what to see and visit in Lanzarote during our stay. Her tips led us to book several excursions and visit some wonderful places in Lanzarote. Muchas gracias para ella. Next is the talented Roberto, with his relaxed and layback personality. A funny young man, who spoke several languages and felt like the mascot of the team. My partner appreciated the information he provided him about other Melia holiday opportunities elsewhere. Last but not least, we have the lovely Cecilia. The star of the evening shows when she was on duty. Her Latin spirit, beauty and smile melted many young men’s hearts. We found it delightful to watch her and Ramon danced together as part of a taste of exotic Cuban rhythms being played by the bands. Cecilia’s morning spinning and pilates sessions help me keep my fitness in check. The whole animation team performed brilliantly and made our evenings enjoyable enhancing the quality of our experience at the Melia hotel. We did not miss a single evening session and danced the nights away until the bands went home. The “icing” of our holiday experience came in just a day before our departure when the Reception manager kindly offered us an opportunity to spend a day at the Level. The experience was absolutely fantastic. The only minus in the whole of our Melia experience was the water in the pool. We love to swim but we did not have the courage to get wet in such cold water. It was freeeezzzing cold and with the wind-chill made it even colder. During our whole stay we saw on three people swim for a few minutes. Correction three polar bears!!!. All in all, our experience at the Melia was a wonderful and unforgettable one and we happen to be travelling back to Lanzarote again, the Melia Salinas will be our definite choice. We found this part of Lanzarote a heaven of peace and quiet, especially at night.

We chose the Melia Salinas because we had stayed in a Melia hotel before. We weren't disappointed. We booked a junior suite so that came with extra benefits such as a separate adults-only pool and access to a lounge area offering free drinks, nibbles and also breakfast if you wanted it. The food was amazing, - I don't think there is anywhere in Lanzarote that is any better, and the staff were extremely kind and helpful. The beds are out of this world so we slept like logs. Although the weather wasn't very good, the air conditioning in the room was brilliant and we could use it to warm up as well as cool down! There is also musical entertainment every night of a high standard - although perhaps you can get a bit overdosed on Tony Bennett / Frank Sinatra / Henry Mancini / Tom Jones. The hotel also has a good gym and offers activities like yoga and T'ai Chi every day. We had to leave the hotel at 5 am, and they even offered us coffee before we left. All-in-all it was a good experience.
Many people come on holiday to Lanzarote in winter due to it’s renown as a perennially sunny hotspot, with blue skies and winter temperatures averaging around 18° Celsius. It’s the summer peak that the island is famed for though when temperatures soar to around 28° Celsius. If you’re too hot, splash into the pool or get some watersports in on the beach!
