As a couple we stayed here for a week in early February. This is a hotel in transition as clearly the rooms have been updated but other parts of the hotel are due a refit from March onwards. Our room on the second floor of four had a sea view and had been redecorated with new furniture, bed, lining, big flat screen tv, new shower, basin etc. All apart from the floor tiles which were the original old ones with tired grouting? Seemed a shame to fit lovely new stuff but leave tired old tiles to look at. (You would have no sea view from the 1st floor below due to the palm trees so ask for the higher floors) Hugh central atrium with vegetation, flowing water and Hugh palm trees going up centrally the four floors. Pool area looked nice but no one using it as explained later. Restaurant food was very good, both breakfast and evening meal. Evening meal varied with chef on hand to serve from cuts of beef and lamb or you could choice cuts of fresh fish for him to cook there and then, plenty of variety but no themes in evening so same food selection every night. The Onyx bar was were there was a different evening singer which we watched a couple of evening and they were pretty good. You can easily walk out of the back of the hotel which is right on the sea front and have a pleasant stroll along the seafront reaching a large selection of shops, restaurants and bars easily within 10 minutes where drinks can be very cheap if you look. Overall the hotel is fine and I’m sure areas of it will be crisper and smarter after the refit, maybe reflected in the price? The main issue for us on this holiday and this is clearly not the hotels fault one bit but the weather in early February was awful. Cloud, rain and howling wind most of our week hence we never got the chance to lay by the pool and wore long trousers and thankfully took an umbrella. Locals told us it was scorching this time last year!! We might as well stayed in the UK and saved our money. Would we return, not on the weather experience but not the hotels fault as I said.
Would thoroughly recommend this hotel. Staff are amazing nothing was too much trouble, especially Ana in the Level lounge, rooms were lovely, food was fantastic.Great location, we will come back to this hotel again
Hmmm - this hotel is a bit of a mixture. We were looking for a luxury hotel in a quiet spot for a relaxing break. Did we get that? Yes - in some respects. The location is lovely, and we had a refurbished sea view room which was small but nicely done, with a good balcony and fabulous view of the unspoilt beach. As others have said, some of the public areas are tired, but I know the hotel is due to close for re- furb soon. We were half-board, and. I would say the quality of the food was good, with a huge choice. The down- side is that the dining room is massive - and has an ambience more like a cafeteria. Also , I think at a 5 star hotel it would be nice if someone showed you to a table rather than leaving you to it. Queuing for fresh-cooked food also became rather boring. This brings me to what we felt was the worst point. We were not told that this is also a very big conference hotel. When a huge conference arrived for the week, this made the dining-room even more noisy, busy and unpleasant. We asked TUI if we could switch hotels but they told us it would be £60 per night to change to an equivalent hotel, plus an admin fee. We also asked at the hotel if we could upgrade to ‘The Level’ which is a more exclusive part of the hotel where you at least get breakfast (not dinner), in a smaller waiter-service restaurant. We were told this would cost us 40 euros per person per day even if we stayed in the same room. We decided just to put up with the situation, and avoided the dining room by eating out on a couple of nights. The bar area and evening entertainment was pretty good. All in all though - we were disappointed in this hotel, and preferred the Volcan in Playa Blanca, where we had stayed the previous year.
the stay was very restful and peaceful. enjoyed the use of the gym was able to use all equipment as very few residents appeared to use the facilities.the staff were enthusiastic and very attentive and polite. would stay again.
As always The Melia Salinas was a wonderful experience, huge comfy beds and excellent facilities. My only major complaint is the constant door slamming....day and night folks were just letting the doors slam shut and disturbing all the guests, especially late at night and early in the morning. Just selfish. And also access to some parts of the hotel is still barred to non Level guests.
Refurbished room overlooking the sea couldn’t wish for better. Staff all very friendly, food lovely. Entertainment could be improved but it was start of the holiday season. Pool area always kept clean, pool a little cool but refreshing.
WARNING; this hotel has very poor accessibility, I walk with a stick and found getting around difficult. On arrival, we were assigned a double bedded room, #001, on the ‘ground’ floor, although we had requested, (via the pre-arrival check-in) a twin bedded room overlooking ‘The Level’ pool – told no alternatives available as hotel full; maybe tomorrow. On arrival asked to pay for our stay as hotel has a limit of what can be charged – paid for the entire stay but not offered a ‘pay in Euro’s option’, hence very poor exchange rate used. Although room was on ‘ground floor’; there were 11 steps down to the foyer level; also access to the new Sanctuary lounge is problematic. The Sanctuary lounge and terrace are great but don’t bother with breakfast there, the choice is limited and service slow, far better to use the main restaurant. It is a shame that the lunch time complimentary bar and snacks by ‘The Level’ pool have been discontinued. We had a Junior Suite; the refurbished room has lost most of its character, the 'corporate' theme (same as the Melia Cala Galdana we stayed in) has replaced the ‘César Manrique’ look from before. The hotel is still in a refurbishment program, the room updates appear be complete but we were told the hotel is closing for two months in April for work on the public areas but no details were available. It appears the hotel is losing some of its ‘César Manrique’ character which will be a shame. We will not return until, the work is complete and the accessibility issues are addressed.
Just got back from our third visit to the Melia Salinas at Costa Teguise. We were pleasantly surprised at the enhancements and room makeovers that have taken place in the last year. The new Level pool area and lounge are now just brilliant, the staff as ever, incredibly professional, courteous and helpful. One of the many delights that the hotel has to offer is the buffet - the variety and quality is outstanding, the waiter service friendly and efficient, top marks to the chefs and the restaurant team. Overall this has to be one of our favourite hotels - its always a relaxing, restful stay, highly recommended.
Lovely friendly hotel, visit there every year, lots of refurbishment going on making it even better, special Thumbs up to Ramon And Cecelia who head up the entertainment and leisure there And really do a fantastic and very professional job
just returned from a lovely break at this hotel. We did book THE LEVEL, area and was so happy we did. The pool area is beautiful with plenty of sun beds 'very peaceful although this could be a little more people come summer. all the staff are incredible and are very friendly and helpful. breakfast here in the morning is such a lovely way to start your day, and so nice to get table service so no dashing about . It has nice seating area you can access all day ,with cava and water available all day, also from 5pm to 6pm each evening you have drinks and tapas for free.You may look at the price and think again DONT go to the level it is so worth it. I know the hotel is closing in April for arefit which they do need the main pool is very tired and dated so hope they can improve this as , i know they have like us planning laws they have to adhere to.The food in the main restaurant is very avarage and really they need to invest in food covers to keep food hot , i personally found the food only average looking much better than the taste. This said there are some really good places to eat a short stroll away so no problem. the new upgraded rooms on the level are super so always ask for those. all in all i would return to this hotel and can recommend.
