Recent guest reviews
I was worried about coming to this hotel after reading the reviews. But honestly I had nothing to worry about The hotel is on the beach yes it's a bit rocky but not all of it and as you walk along the coast line there are friendly wild chip munks. There is an African market on Sunday and Wednesday great for cheap holiday bargains. And the oasis wildlife park is definitely worth a visit. Free transfer bus takes about 10 minutes to get there. The hotel is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful . Yes there are a lot of Germans but I never felt we were treated any different to them. The food is good yes the breakfasts are the same but if you carnt find something you must be very picky. There isn't a lot to do around the hotel but the entertainment team try and get people up and joining in. There are loads of sun beds so no need for the early morning towel run. The entertainment in the evening is ok bit boring and sometimes only in German. If you want a lively place this is not for you.we had a relaxing week walking around and sitting on the terrace near the pool bar enjoying the view out over the sea.
the hotel is really nice with interesting solutions in the building. The drawback is that the rain is running from the roof in the main building (not much and not disturbing) and that there is no heating in the rooms for the cold month, January. The food was good, there was always something for the kids. The pool and the surrounding area was well kept and there was plenty of sunbeds. the choice of drinks included in all inclusive was impressive. Our rooms had a seaview as does most of the rooms. Our kids with their kids had spacy 2 room appartments All in all we had a very good experience staying there for 2 weeks
Booked this as a last minute deal a week before for a quick week in the sun, on arrival at the hotel we had a lovely young lady, Danielle, from Scotland check us in. All explained really well,check in efficient, room spacious and very clean, garden view,was given a small buffet due to late arrival, very pleasant, could not fault food lot's of choice, nice location for beach lot's of room and sun loungers, we were all inclusive plenty of drink choice, for a cheeky week in the sun this hotel was value for money.
probably a good 3*plus hotel which was 90%germans pushing in all time. lovely weather this time of year but when it did rain there were no bars open in the reception area so everyone was forced to the beach bar 100 meters away, stupid managers policy.the hotel was full but there were plenty of sunloungers, take your towels! very clean and the food was marked 6/7 out of 10 every time.plenty of veggie and gluten free food,soups very poor. drinks not bad, amstel beer,red wine , sangria, no rose!!.ask for a pool view best probably 3080,seaview. we found it short staffed in all areas at peak times. at the bars the staff didnt realise that sometimes there was a que!! estavan and brenda in the restaurant were good the rest were irritable , probably because short staffed. good market 400mtrs, shops 20 mins walk, bus stop 200mtrs every half hour. decent profesional entertainment once maybe twice a week, could be better, good luck!!!
Just returned from a great week here at SBH Costa Calma. Firstly in terms of location it was a 55 min transfer from the airport. I did not understand the "in the middle of nowhere" comments that I have read, there were a couple of supermarkets 2 min walk away, then if you turn left out of the hotel and head up the road for 10 minutes you come to a small selection of shops and a market type place along with an Irish pub and couple of restaurants. A good 20 minute walk brings you to a small shopping mall up by Costa Calma Palace hotel. The walk is actually better if you walk through the wooded area, lovely and peaceful. There is also a market 5 mins walk away twice a week which was good. I did think that the evening entertainment at the hotel for adults was poor, so I suppose if you are wanting to go out and eat/drink in a resort centre then this is not the location for you but if you have a family and are not needing the evenings out then you will be just fine. Back to the hotel, we found all of the staff from reception, restaurant bar and housekeeping to be extremely friendly and welcoming, and the entertainment staff worked tirelessly. We had an amazing sea view room, with views to die for. Housekeeping team did a great job, and kept it spotlessly clean all week. The restaurant was great, huge selection at breakfast, usual live cooking stations for smoothies, eggs, omelettes etc Lunch and dinner selection was also amazing, always a couple of pasta dishes, fish dishes, pizzas, salad bars, desserts, chocolate fountains, so much choice I was never bored The bars were also very good, all spirits were local, but ok, and beer, wine and sangria on tap to help yourself. The service at all bars was always friendly and efficient The mini club and mini disco was very god, and particular mention to Sasha who went the extra mile and ensured my daughter had an amazing time All in all this is a great hotel, great location for families and those not needing a resort centre as such, great facilities and excellent staff. I will definitely be returning THANK YOU ALL!
Drinks watered down, food crap, some rude staff but most friendly, me and my fiancé had to go to sister hotel to eat as the food at this hotel was terrible. Far too quiet nothing outside of the hotel apart from the African market and Tony's cafe where they do brilliant mojitos that's all there is really. Went on a few trips enjoyed them. But really think about it before booking as it was very medioka!
Have stayed at this hotel three times over the last 6 years and have always loved it hence we booked it again. Came for a lovely week of relaxation and beautiful weather and just a chill out and enjoy new year. What an absolute disaster. Wish we had never booked it. Would have bee better staying at home. We ended up in room 3063 just at the end of the corridor where everyone coming and going has to pass to arrive and leave. That in itself should not be a problem but there was a quarter inch gap between the door and door post so absolutely no sound proofing. Tiled floors, shoes ,case trolleys happy people, arguing people, we could watch them walking past just awful. Loud noise ended by 1am if you where lucky and started again at 4am with people leaving for early flights.(have video of it) We spoke to reception and asked could they do something about it (we also had a problem with the shower that washed the wall not us and the fact that our balcony looked straight into the next door room) Response maybe we can move you tomorrow. Next day sorry we cant move you no rooms! Nothing done about shower. Eventually on the day before we where due to leave they offered us another room and sorted the shower (which took 10mins) Was so so gutted that our relaxing holiday was totally ruined because it was not as hoped. Will say on the plus side the staff where all great except the boss of house who knocked on our door at 9.30 on new years morning insisted on cleaning our room then when i asked her to come back later slammed the door . Our room was not cleaned that day and the clean room sign had been thrown back inside the room. Food well if you like fish fine. My hubby was looking for meat on our last night GOAT STEW was his choice!! need i say more.
Booked this holiday all the way back in May 2017 through a travel agents and it was advertised to myself and my friend (23 and 24 respectively) as a young hub filled with energy. Long story short it isn't. It's more like a retirement holiday. We were meant to stay there for 10 days. We checked out after 1 night. First things first....majority of the customers here are either elderly or German. Very judgemental towards us as for the entire time we were in a public spot we were getting very rude looks. The food is very bland with not much variety and the breakfast is definitely nothing to be excited about. No bacon or sausage but hey...if you want cheese and ham slices you're sorted. The beach IS NOT A SAND BEACH. The beach is a rock beach. Not pebbles....rock. So yes bring those gummy shoes. The rooms are extremely dated and from previous reviews we never left any valuables lying around due to a history of theft. The room got infested with Ants after 1 day. No shampoo or conditioner offered but plenty of body wash. The town of Costa calma itself is literally just hotels. All bars (1 German bar) and the All inclusive stop/close at 11.30 so not really all inclusive to be honest. Cocktails are watered down the only genuine cocktail they serve is a mojito. There are no restaurants and the entire town is made of hotels. So seriously nothing to do locally. There are no transfers from Costa calma to another side of the island you have to get public transport as a taxi to Corralejo can be something within the vacinity of €100+. Buses to corralejo take all day so you don't have a chance to see or do anything. Wi-Fi is separate. We were asked to pay 23€ per person NOT per room. Tested signal in room and there was nothing. Dont bother. Buy one off data. In the end we had to use the emergency line with Jet2holidays and request an immediate transfer which Jet2 did within 2 hours. We were transferred to the Labranda Aloe Club in Corralejo which is a 3* hotel but a far greater and superior service compared to this 4* hotel. Seriously do not recommend to anyone under 50. Family's, hens, friend getaway hols etc. Go to Corralejo.
We spent Christmas and New year at the hotel. Everything was great but as an older couple we thought it was more suitable for families. The food and facilities were good entertainment was there for anyone that wanted it. The staff all worked hard to make sure that your holiday went well. We would like to thank Mamee and Houcine for there entertaining service on the bar. At this hotel once there you need not spend any m o 're money. Please be aware that there is nothing else outside the hotel.
Great location, nice outdoor space and helpful staff. This basically sums up all the positives. Starting with the rooms: spacious, nice bathroom, large terrace. What you see immediately is that the furniture is a bit outdated, but that would not have been a problem if the beds were comfortable. They weren't. Pillows were terrible as well and I had to use two of them to get a somewhat decent support. One pillow is around 5 centimeters thick and this is definitely not enough for a comfortable sleep. For a large hotel that is part of a big hotel chain it is ridiculous to have such crappy pillows and mattresses. At least change those, if having a full renovation is not possible for whatever reasons. My room was located fairly close to where the glass waste from the hotel was thrown and right next to an underground parking for the hotel so that wasn't very nice either. You pay extra for the Wi-Fi and what you get is worse than the free Wi-Fi you can get at most cheap hostels. Couldn't watch a 4 minute video on YouTube without it stopping to load, even at the lowest possible quality. Using Netflix is not an option. To top that you can only use one device at a time, probably because the low speed couldn't handle even one anyway. And it's not just the speed - the connection is bad and I kept loosing it whenever on the terrace or in the bathroom. The housekeeping service is good. The food is good as well, but you'll eventually get tired of eating the same thing over and over again. To sum it up: the rooms definitely could use a renovation, it would be nice to have wider range of options for the buffet and the Wi-Fi is a joke. Four star hotels should be just one step away from a five star, but that is definitely not the case. Would not recommend it. Fuerteventura is an amazing place and I'm sure there are plenty of hotels that do better.
