Great quality, amazing value
Stayed here for a week all inclusive. The hotel was extremely well kept with friendly staff. The whole complex was immaculately kept. The food was fresh at every meal. With a wine list for evening meals to select from the vast array of wines. The evening entertainment was different every night as such always something new every evening. Have already booked our next holiday here (which we have never done before).More

Fantastic Staff make this hotel a must for those who are looking for a quieter family holiday on Lanzarote
My wife and I spent a fortnight here in April 2014 with our six month old daughter, and what a great place to take her for her first holiday! The hotel is a large modern one with great facilities which manages not to make you feel lost or just another customer. The rooms are spotless, well appointed, and for those who still want to know what's going on at home, the TV really does get the standard 5 British channels and more. So, what's good and what can be improved upon? Firstly the good: 1. The rooms. Spotless, with great maid service and excellent cot beds should you need them. Staying on the main hotel section on floors five and four give you the best views. Loads of lifts around so there's no hassle moving about. Whilst it says five floors, the hotel's on a slope, so it's more like two to three floors depending where you are. Rooms have safes, but you have to pay 2 Euros a day for it. You can also get a kettle provided for your room with a refundable 30 Euro deposit. 2. Hotel staff; by far, their best asset. Everyone we met were just so friendly and helpful. From reception, to maid service, to the bar or restaurant they are brilliant! 3. Facilities. Four good pools, two very large, one medium and a small shallow children's pool. The largest pool is a salt water one and has a artificial beach area next to it, the medium one is next to the garden area which is most popular with families. Pool towels have to be got from reception with a 10 Euro deposit per towel. They could do with getting some new towels as these are a little thin but OK. Seawater spa with gym (you get one free visit there per stay, well worth it), shops, excellent piano bar with sun terrace, entertainment 'hall' with bar for evening shows (these start at ten pm, after a children's disco at about nine), two pool bars ( one next to the 'lunch' restaurant), courtesy shuttle bus to Puerto Di Carmen which is about 3km away. Day time entertainments run every day bar Mondays, have a good selection from aqua aerobics for Mums, to volleyball and pistol shooting for Dads, to archery, water polo, and 'crazy games' in the pool for the kids. Apart from that, normal facilities of 24 hour reception etc but also free WiFi around the entrance to the restaurant area. 4. Food and drinks. All food served buffet style, breakfast and dinner in the main restaurant, lunch in the restaurant by the pool. Dinner times can be a bit hectic, dinner especially from 7 to 8.30 pm, but if you can wait until 9 then it's a much more pleasant experience. Drinks selection for all inclusive is excellent, no wristbands to wear, they just need to swipe your room card whenever you eat or drink. 5. Location. If you want lots of nearby bars, clubs, all day English breakfast places and Chavs to talk to, then go to Puerto Di Carmen as this is set pretty much on its own surrounded by some (quiet) holiday apartments and just a three minute walk down the hill to a lovely little marina (which does markets every Tuesday and Fridays). It is on a bus route (despite what your holiday rep will say), the stop is about three minutes walk away, which can take you to Playa Blanca(number 161) for 2.60 Euros from where you can get the 35 minute ferry over to Fuerteventura (well worth it, Corralejo is lovely!). We found the location perfect, nice and quiet with a wonderful hotel to relax in but a spot with easy access to other parts of the island. Now to the bits they could improve upon... 6. Pool temperatures. These can be a bit 'fresh' shall we say at between 19 and 22 degrees Celsius. Not too bad for energetic children but for adults and especially very small children it would have been nice if they could have heated the ones they can up to 24 to 26 degrees. Seem to be a popular bug bear of all we talked to. 7. Hotel decor. Generally lovely and well designed, it just looks like the hotel was planned and built when Spain was spending huge amounts of money about eight years ago and then, by the time, they were finishing it it looks as if the recession had hit and they had to make a few urgent cuts to their finances. For example, there's a lot of 'wooden panel- looking areas' which have been finished off with a rather poor laminate which is peeling off in a lot of places and the small tiles in the pools and spa areas were put on with some very bad grout and many are missing - indeed, it seems a favourite game for the children to go and find all the loose or missing ones. It's not going to detract from your stay, you just wonder how long it will be before the hotel starts falling apart! 8. The food. Breakfast is superb and lunch is very good but after a few dinners you get a little disappointed by the amazing huge selection of dishes to choose from, but you wonder where all the flavour in the food has gone; this is most obvious in the desserts which look amazing but all taste the same. It's a little point, but when everything else in the hotel is just so good you wish they spent a little more time replacing quantity with quality. If the food had been up to the rest, then I would have given this hotel five stars out of five. Overall: we had a wonderful time at a lovely hotel which is full of the most amazing and friendly staff. Lovely rooms, great pools and personal atmosphere. If only the taste of the food matched the staff then this hotel would be a five star must! One note of caution: if you go with First Choice, expect poor service from the holiday rep. We've used First Choice many times before and this was by far the worst. The meet and greet briefing was utterly woeful, just fifteen minutes of Gareth trying to sell the excursions, no useful information whatsoever. He even told us (once we'd waited to ask the most basic of questions...) that there was no bus route next to the hotel, which there was. He never seemed to be around, when he was just smiled and thought that appearing friendly and happy was enough to cover up for his lack of knowledge. Our return flight details weren't put out until less than 48 hours from the time of departure, there was no helpful reminder note put under the door at the end of your stay, he wasn't there on the arrival or departure bus ( the latter of which took 50 minutes, not the advertised 20, because we had to go through every hotel on the way to the airport it seems, which then delivered us at the back of a Queue for a check in desk serving three flights!). Not impressed at all, if I was the hotel staff I'd be putting in some strong words about that travel company!!More

A great hotel for families
5 of us came, my wife and I with 11, 9 and 9 year olds. Nice hotel, great food - loved the fruit at breakfast. Swimming pools all good - one 40 metres with lanes, the others for kids and big kids! Rooms very good, we got the family adjoining rooms with a garden, 10 paces from the grassy area. Entertainment a bit mixed, some great, some awful! Porto Colero is a lovely little port only 5 minutes walk. We don't ever do this, but we might come back, but book direct with the hotel as the transfer from the airport is so close.More

Enjoyed our stay and would return
We stayed here for a week and really enjoyed it. We asked reception for a room that would be near our friend and they kindly did this for us. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We were all inclusive and were impressed that we had branded spirits at the bar and a wine list for dinner. There was a great choice of food but a bit repetitive for us, so we did go and eat at the marina a few evenings. We enjoyed the entertainment and cocktails in the terrace bar.More
When in Lanzerote we usually stay in Playa Blanca but after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor decided to have a change and try Costa Calero. The hotel is set in a very quite resort. As I have some mobility problems I did not get down to the Marina but hubby went and was very impressed. The hotel and grounds are fantastic with no problems getting a sun bed around one of the pools. The pools were a little cold but we managed a dip most days. The All Inclusive was the best we have had with most brands covered e.g Bacardi, Bells and Jack Daniels in addition to a good selection of bottles of wine at Dinner. The food was good with plenty of choice whatever time you decided to eat. The same staff worked in the restaurants and bars and worked very hard. They were always cheerful, helpful and obliging and made our holiday most enjoyable The entertainment was good and well organised. We did not use the Spa as we were waiting for a cloudy day but we had wall to wall sunshine every day. Will do next time. There was a good choice of English speaking channels on the TV's including BBC and ITV. The hotel was totally relaxing and both the staff and fellow holidaymakers were very friendly and we will definitely be returning The reason I have said nearly perfect and not perfect was the beds were hard and the furniture in the rooms are ready for some updating. I agree with Kay D's suggestion of a bench outside the hotel would be good as you are asked to be outside 20 minutes before your transport is due to arrive.More
