We must have walked around most of the area in 3 days so nothing is too far away.

(“You broke it they have to fix it 👀”) RESPECT!!!
Great service and great hotel. This hotel is amazing, first time we have booked this hotel and its been amazing. We have loved every minute of our stay. The maids work very hard, clean room, and fresh towels daily. Plenty to eat at breakfast. Can't wait to book again.
Me and my wife stayed here for one week in may this was our second visit and it was just as good as the first visit, we arrived at the hotel at 11am even though we was early for check in they had a room available, great location sea view and pool view, large spacious room very clean and tidy(maid service daily), free WiFi free safe free iron and free kettle.
Plenty of loungers around the pool no need to reserve beds
Food great even for my wife who is so fussy great selection and not repetitive.
Staff very attentive especially barman Michael (Alberto) was sadly missed but hopefully
will see him next time

(If you're checking reviews because you found this hotel through Secret Escapes: don't waste your money. As we're telling SE directly, The Eurostars Las Salinas does NOT belong in their portfolio).
We booked a two week break at a 4 star spa hotel called the Geranios. We expected a 4-star experience. Somewhere between us booking the stay in January and arriving there in May, the Geranios became Eurostars Las Salinas which didn't really change our expectations; they still claimed to be a 4-star spa hotel. What we found there was a massive disappointment.
If we had expected a 3-star-ish rack'em-and-stack'em budget hotel, fine. Then they definitely delivered, and most of the guests actually seemed ok with the standard.
The suite was actually lovely and the housekeeping staff patient and gracious. The fruit and the bread at the buffet were generally fresh. Expectations met. And that was the extent to which our expectations were met.
Yes, there was a seaview, as expected. There was also however a view of a busy public parking lot and of a municipal busstop. What we certainly didn't know to expect, was the roar of jet engines from around 7.30 in the morning to around 10 in the evening, as the hotel lies perfectly aligned with the very final approach to the nearby Fuerteventura airport.
Since acquiring the Geranios, it seems that Eurostars has cut a lot of basic aminities you would normally expect from a 4-star hotel. Like a yoga mat or two in the gym, decent pillows, a kettle and tea/instant coffee in the room, a minibar, a toilet brush, the welcome drink highlighted in the booking confirmation, or plants and flowers around the place, to soften up the perception. In reality all of the above were missing. Well, plants and flowers weren't as much missing as they were plastic.
In a 4-star hotel, you would generally expect the food to be warm and freshly prepared on-site. In reality, the food in the buffet was at best lukewarm from the minute the dining hall doors opened, and had the texture and taste of something prepared in a central, industrial kitchen elsewhere on the island. On the first day, when we commented on the temperature of the food we'd collected from the buffet, a staff member alerted us to the presence of a microwave oven next to the buffet. Feel free to reheat. You were able to get two choices of meat prepared at the buffet, mind you. That reportoire however was limited to fish and lamb or pork chop throughout most of our stay, both heavily fried and more than generously splashed with garlic. The overall quality of the catering reminded us of roadside cafeterias on the German autobahn.
In a 4-star hotel, you would expect the fruit juice and coffee to be freshly made from actual fruit and coffee beans respectively. In reality, the various choices of juice were obviously mixed from powdered concentrate and the coffee tasted like cheapest possible instant coffee. We quickly started buying our coffee from the neighbouring beach café - and actually noticed the hotel's administrative staff getting THEIR coffee there as well. Go figure.
Dessert-wise, you would expect a 4-star hotel to at least buy their cakes from a decent bakery, if not have an on-site pastry chef make them. In reality, the various cakes tasted more or less the same - overly sweet, synthetic, day-old and like something out of the pastry aisle at Lidl. The same could be said for the various forms of pastry available; stale, store-bought quality.
In a 4-star hotel you would expect the house wine on the taps(!) to be more than obviously bottom rung quality. In reality, the wine was just shy of disgusting. We live in wine country and know, as any hotelier/chef/sommelier with a minimum of professional pride would know, that you can get very decent wine at low prices - if you only care to put in a minimum of effort.
Finally, you had the highly publicised option of ordering a picnic if going on excursions or on a drive of your own. We didn't really know what to expect from the picnic basket, but as we were told to order it a day in advance, we certainly expected something requiring a bit of preparation. In reality the picnic consisted of one (per person) day-old, obviously store-bought triangle ham and cheese sandwich, a small bottle of water, a small brick of juice-like lemonade, an apple and a clementine. For a 4-star hotel, frankly we found that embarrassing.
The overall impression was that of Eurostars being more focused on cutting corners, choosing the cheapest possible solutions, than on providing guests with a 4-star experience. So... The Eurostars Las Salinas is many things - a 4-star spa hotel it is not. If that is what you are looking for, you should move on and find somewhere else to stay. We certainly wished we had.
On arrival we were warmly greeted by the lovely Marta, and Jose, on reception. We were given a map of the hotel and also the WiFi code. WiFi is free and easily accessed from anywhere in the hotel. It was a good speed and never lost the connection once connected.
Our accessible room was beautiful, apart from the shower area which looked great until I came to use it. It just wasn’t practical for a disabled person with poor balance and limited mobility like myself. There is a shower chair but no grab rail for added safety. Plus the position of the shower screen makes it a small enclosure. This is a shame because it’s a big bathroom but badly designed. A disabled person needs to feel safe when showering I didn’t.
The safe is free which is a bonus. Lots of hotels in Europe now charge.
The hotel is fully accessible and wheelchair friendly with a disabled toilet on pool level and one on the ground floor which I’m guessing doubles up as a courtesy room as there’s a shower in there with plenty of space. The only thing lacking is a grab rail for a disabled person.
The dinning room was lovely and airy. There is a small section to dine al fresco. The staff were all very attentive and were keen to offer assistance. Special thanks to Adama and Agnieszka (I’ve probably spelt that wrong, she was from Czech Republic)
Personally I found the food very tasty, and never struggled to find anything different to eat each day.
There are two bars one is situated on the ground floor doesn’t which doesn’t open until 5:30pm, the pool bar was open 10am -5:30pm.
