Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have visited the island many times and never had the opportunity to visit Las Salinas. We finally managed it and our tour guide, Martin, gave us a brilliant tour - his english was great and his enthusiasm for it all really made it special. Really glad we got a chance to do this and finally understand how it all works.

A fascinating explanation of how salt is extracted from sea water using traditional techniques. This is how artisinal food producers should do tours! Our guide, Martin, was knowledgeable and passionate about the process, its history and the traditions it maintains.

Lunchtime meal for two. We were lucky and had the last available table. It’s certainly advisable to book. Fish catch of the day was excellent.

Las Salinas is a salt lake located near Yaiza Town, in Lanzarote Island. It is a salt lake, which you can do a guided visit to know the history and the methods of purification and extract salt from sea water. It was really very interesting. In the guided visit, you can see on the place and see wonderful views of salt lakes and the historical buildings used during centuries to extract salt. Also at the end of the visit, we could do a tasting experience with salts with different flavours and local white wine. Really, a fantastic place. Near the main building, where nowadays there is the shop, you can see a wonderful statue to remember the salt workers and inside this building, you can see mountains of salt.
On the other hand, when I arrived there, they did not know that I had booked a guided visit in internet, so I had to wait one hour to begin it (I went to Yaiza to breakfast in a very good bar called 7 Hojas). The wait was worth it (and the breakfast too)!

COSTA TEGUISE

I read the reports of this “resort” before I traveled and feel that having been there now a few things need pointing out. The idea that this is a cute little Spanish seaside town could not be further from the truth. I could find little charming about it. It is a low calibre destination with low calibre shops, bars, restaurants and supermarkets. The eateries are mostly pizza, pasta fast food outlets and there are lots of Mexican options. There is however nothing Spanish . The bars/restaurants are brightly lit, plastic chairs and tables and showcase huge menus outside with at least 50 dishes which indicates nothing is freshly made. There are a lot of 3 euro English full breakfasts on offer with pictures to tempt you. Is it really necessary to fly in refrigerated steak from Uruguay? It was beyond disappointing. I did not find the local staff to be charming and welcoming as in most Spanish resorts – they are busy, loud and not too friendly. After one visit I had got its measure, after 3 I was ready to fly out. There is not much better to be said about Arrecife either. I did not enjoy one meal here in 7 days.

I chose this 5 star hotel because it is part of the Melia group, it offers a “level” service – I have experienced this at other Melias and found it to be good. I was asked to check in on line 24 hrs before in order to have priority check in and an upgrade. I was rewarded with the Penthouse. Sadly when I arrived they had decided to change this to a 2 bedroom villa isolated on the beach – it was not a good call for a single lady traveller so I declined. I then waited 55 minutes in Reception whilst they prepared the upgraded penthouse. I did not much like it – again 2 bedrooms for a single person, a vast terrace which I discovered had no afternoon sun and the most bare minimalist décor I have ever seen. It looked as if the furniture had just arrived and the room had not been “dressed”. I was not told there was a choice so I unpacked. The next day I re-packed and moved to the Suite I originally booked so this was not a good start. To be honest no-one seemed to mind too much about all of this. Housekeeping was good and they never missed anything. This Ocean suite was very nice although I am not sure that filling it with 2 enormous Jacuzzi baths (the one on my terrace was not working) is a very good use of space?
I found the hotel to be somewhat lacking in charm. It is built around an impressive atrium open to the skies which is very scenically and beautifully manicured but the very high gusting wind blows madly down all the corridors blowing your door shut and blowing you down the corridor. I wish I had been warned . Also wish the web site had not said that the pools were heated - they are not. Getting into water at nothing much above 21 degrees with this level of strong breeze was a big challenge and not much of a pleasure. Had I known I would not have booked this hotel. There is a bar at this pool but you will have to fetch your own drinks. You will also have to fetch and carry the towels for the loungers and go the local Supermarket to buy plastic clips to hold these towels and mattresses to the bed on account of the high wind. They do not supply them because they have a “plastic free” ethos!
The food here was my main issue – it is non stop buffet fare. To be fair the selection is very good but morning noon and night it becomes tiresome. The atmosphere in the the dining room is more cruise ship than 5 star and does not change from breakfast, lunch to dinner. Also quite hard to find a scarce waiter to order wine from. There is an Italian restaurant open some evenings in the Level breakfast room – again same atmosphere at night as at breakfast and during the day and Italian, not Spanish food.
I used the Spa which was fine – very strange that you cannot sign this t your room – you have come with cash or cards. There was also a very nice bar called Las Salinas Beach Bar serving Good cocktails with cool music. However despite its proximity to the hotel and its own access gate it is not part of the hotel and again you can’t sign to your room. I heard them say this over and over! A lot of missed custom I felt.

The staff everywhere are very pleasant and helpful. Nice shops to browse in the lobby.

This restaurant is in a remote spot overlooking the salt pans between El Golfo and Playa Blanca. Most people discover it by accident or by recommendation. After my first visit I knew that I would return again and again. The restaurant itself is situated overlooking a large area of salt pans that are beautiful and make an ideal backdrop. The building is divided into two dining areas: one being more formal and indoors but with large windows that open when the weather is hot. The second area is more of an outdoor terrace but with protection from the elements. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly but the service is five star. I have now eaten at this restaurant five times; I can only recommend lunches, I think that after dark it might be too remote for most people. The food has always been first class, cooked exactly how I want it and with a broad choice. Whenever we have visitors in the future Las Salinas will be on my list of places to impress the guests.

It is interesting to see if you pass by, for example on the way to el golfo. I would not recomend to go only for that, especially because there are nor tours or further information here, only a selling point.
