    Overview 8.95 /10

    Built in  1987  the Gran Melia Salinas was significantly renovated in 1999 when the garden villas were unveiled. It consists of a white terraced building  of 4 , terraced levels. The luxury block includes  289 rooms. The lobby is huge and houses a tropical garden where a river and small waterfalls flow, embellished with pools where fish swim about. A stone walkaway snakes through the palm trees, from where you can hear bird songs and the croaking of fogs in the evening: a real little paradise!  The complete feeling of being outdoors. Gran Melia Salinas offers a large, beautiful   salt water pool of 19375 ft² for relaxation, designed by the famous local artist Cesar Manrique.  Open from 8 am to 6 pm the pool's temperature is   21 to 24 °C, and is nicely fitted out and decorated by volcanic rocks, a wooden footbridge and an island with palm tree. Access is down a slight slope, like on the beach. You can read your holiday books in tranquility, while lying on your green, iron beach chair covered by a matress, in the shade of a pergola sunshade. Some showers and toilets are located near by. Towels are supplied as soon as you arrive at the beach.

    The Gran Melia Salinas offers   no less than  5 restaurants, which will satisfy all of your desires!  The Atlantida buffet restaurant serves breakfast from 8 am to 10:30 am and dinner from 7 pm to 10:30 pm. The clients can have international cuisine with Oriental or Mediterranean themes, with  show cooking.  Four a la carte restaurants offer a nice variety for your meals. Fine gourmets  can try refined dishes  at the gourmet restaurant of La Graciosa.   La Casa Canaria, a traditional Canarian house, offers three other a la carte restaurants: Tarantella, for Italian dining, Bodequita, if you want to have tapas washed down with good wine for lunch from 1 pm to 4 pm and in the evening from 7 pm to 10:30 pm in a traditional Canarian ambience, and Especias, if you want to try Spanish specialities in the evening. The herbs come directly from the chef's vegetable garden! If you want to drink to your holidays, you can sip many cocktails at the pool bar from 10 am to 6 pm and then at the Guatiza bar from 5 pm to 1 o'clock in the morning in a musical ambience.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    Through a door that opens with your room's magnetic key, you will have access to a small fine sandy beach with clear waters. Protected by  a seawall, this small, uncrowded beach is supervised and equipped with beach chairs, sunshades and showers. We recommend that you wear sandals because there are lots of rocks in the water.

      Mansion Nazaret is a small, three-star, family-run hotel. The atmosphere is very welcoming, the reception is personalised and quality services are provided. This establishment isn't technically a hotel therefore no entertainment is organised in the evening. However, if you are looking for a charming and peaceful place to stay, this is the place for you.

      The Hotel H10 Lanzarote Gardens is a welcoming establishment located in Costa Teguise that will primarily attract families. Everything has been thought out with children and teenagers in mind. The 242-apartment complex is well laid out and full of charm, evident in its very friendly welcome and warm and relaxing atmosphere.

      The Club Siroco is a pleasant 2 star establishment offering the services you would expect of a hotel in this category. The small complex comprises 175 guest rooms which are actually more like apartments. The whole complex is focused around the small swimming pool, which can get rather noisy during high season. Other than this slight drawback, you'll probably find you get good value for your money here, as the hotel also offers many facilities not generally found in hotels of this category.

      Part of the well-known Spanish hotel group, Barcelo, the all-apartment La Galea is a three star resort of manageable size in Costa Teguise, which is not to be confused with Teguise, a small inland village. There is a second Barcelo resort in the area, the Barcelo Lanzarote, which is a lot larger than its little sister, the La Galea. This resort is ideal for holidaymakers looking for the facilities and all-inclusive formula of a large hotel but with the impersonal nature of a huge resort. The resort is not located right on the beach, but it is a short walk away from the coast line.

      The Nazareth apartments in Costa Teguise are in the 2 star category, but in reality, this is a 2 key establishment: this is a rating system that enables you to tell the difference between apartment hotels and hotels. Located at the heart of the village and only 250 m from the beach, the hotel enjoys an ideal location. With its typical Lanzarote architecture, this very charming establishment has a genuine authenticity that stands out on an island crammed with resorts and big hotel chains.

In fact, its facilities are more along the lines of what you would expect of a 4 star establishment, and once you figure this out you're sure to be delighted. The Sands Beach Resort is the ideal destination for families with children, who need lots of space and entertainment. All of the facilities here are high quality and the hotel offers good value for money.

The welcome at the reception desk, the bellboys and the entertainment team are all very friendly. Unlike the other establishments of the island, the clientele is quite varied: youths and families mingle, creating a friendly and warm atmosphere.

      Playa Verde looks like a small non-descript resort like many on the island, however once inside, one realises that the resort is actually fairly large and distinguishes itself from the other hotels due to its large pool, which is the main focus of the hotel. The staff also looks fairly content with working at this resort, which can be felt in the service. There is a comfortable and warm atmosphere here, which is unusual for a resort of this size. Situated in Costa Teguise, the resort is ideal for families with children who love spending time at the pool.

      The Occidental Allegro Oasis resort, not to be confused with its sister hotel, the Occidental Gran Playa also in Costa Teguise, is one of several large non-descript complexes found in the Costa Teguise area. One of the smallest tourist hotspots on the island, Costa Teguise is not to be confused with Teguise which is found further inland. This resort is ideal for families wanting to stay somewhere with all the regular facilities on offer such as a mini club, evening entertainment and the like. Due to its size, the hotel looks more like a shopping mall, so not ideal for holidaymakers looking for a small intimate ambience. Although the resort is newer than its sister hotel, the Occidental Gran Playa just 5 minutes away, it could do with a renovation to bring it into the 21st Century as the décor does tend to be on the drab side.

      Barcelo Lanzarote resort is the second resort of the same chain on the island. Both are in Costa Teguise. The resort is one of the largest on the island and resembles somewhat of a 'holiday estate' due to its large (despite being low-rise) concrete structure. However, it does have some great facilities for families, meaning that families with babies do not need to lug cots, baths, changing tables and the like. The resort also has the best kids' club on the island. Beach fans, worry not as although the resort isn't on the seafront, the beach is a short walk away. Barcelo Lanzarote is ideal for families who want to have elaborate facilities for young children and who don't want to spend too much. However, as there isn't much to see in the surroundings, we strongly advise guests to hire a car for a couple of days to explore the rest of the island, which is without a doubt worth it due to its endless lava landscapes and beautiful beaches. This resort is also a good choice for sports fans as there are a number of activities on offer as well as various games courts for guest use.

      The all-suite Hotetur Lanzarote Bay resort is a medium sized resort of under 200 rooms. Alhtough it isn't the most stylish hotel on the island, the structure and décor have been kept simple and fairly basic, which gave the resort a clean cut look with a relaxed atmosphere that is suited to all types of guests from families to couples and groups of friends. Situated in Costa Teguise, not to be confused with Teguise, which is a small local inland village, is one of the smaller tourist spots on the island. It isn't too far from the airport, however the beaches are better towards the west and north of the island. The resort appears slightly clinical, but there are a few funky details that prevent it from falling into the ?boring' category. The good thing about this resort is that it is of manageable size, which makes a refreshing change from the huge large concrete structures found on the island; so this is a good compromise for holidaymakers looking for a cross between a small hotel but with an all-inclusive meals plan and evening activities.
