Hotel Costa Calero

This hotel comes with great pools and Puerto Calero Marina is just 2 minutes’ walk away.

This stylish hotel practically rubs shoulders with Puerto Calero Marina – a couple of minutes’ walk takes you to its cafés and restaurants. Alternatively, a courtesy bus will get you to Puerto del Carmen in 10 minutes.

Special mention goes to the 3 outdoor pools, among them an infinity number and a huge pool for serious swimming. There’s a manmade beach, too. Plus you’ve got 2 buffet restaurants and a piano bar with a great view.

Honest review

We have reviewed this hotel as average for the following reasons; 1) Food was very repetitive, of general good quality and choice but not seasoned or cooked to our standards, we ate out 4 times due to this. 2) Drinks were of good quality, however the bar staff kept getting our gin and tonics wrong, we somehow ended up with gin and soda water? as we had to keep taking our drinks back, this was a waste for the hotel 3) We found smoking in the outside area of the restaurant unacceptable, we tried to dine outside twice, but had to move back inside due to people lighting up between courses, this therefore became an exclusion zone for us. Apart from the above negatives, the hotel is very clean, the rooms modern and comfortable, the staff mostly friendly, pool areas are excellent, sunbeds are plentiful, entertainment generally very good, courtesy bus service to PDC good. We will not return as we felt smokers were allowed to smoke in too many areas.More

Another great holiday at the Costa Calero

This will be my 4th stay at the Costa Calero so I suppose that says a lot about how I enjoy this hotel. This is a well appointed hotel with ground floor rooms and sea view rooms and side sea view rooms. Saying that I had a ground floor room and could catch a glimpse of the sea and Fuerteventura from my patio. We were on the ground floor but as you walked to the room there was a slight incline which brought you slightly higher but still a ground floor room. The smoking is a bit of a problem in the outside areas especially when you walk up the steps into the hotel. There is a covered area where they permit smoking but it is like a fog that hits you. I really do think this should be looked at and maybe this area made non smoking. We used to call it 'fag alley' and hold your breath whilst you walked through. The room was very comfortable as always. I find the beds a bit hard for my personal taste although they may have had new beds but I always ask for a mattress topper to be on the safe side. Fridge in the room of which two large bottles of water are supplied each day. We were on the All Inclusive and enjoyed a full range of premium drinks, including major brands like Southern Comfort, Jack Daniels, Gordons Gin etc., Tia Maria, Grand Marnier, Cointreau plus many more. Only one not included is Baileys but they offer a quite good alternative (not the same but not bad). The drinks measures are lethal. They just pour and you are easily getting a triple measure each time so just bear that in mind. Food is plentiful and I think there is a great choice. Towards the end of a two week holiday it does get what you think is repetitive. I think it is probably that you are just tired of eating three meals a day. There are also snacks available like toasted sandwiches, cake, peanuts and little tubs of ice cream are available throughout the day. The entertainment team are excellent and never seem to tire. Starting from 10.00am going on to midnight and most likely beyond. Guests forget that they just don't play table tennis, shuffleboard, bingo, entertain the kids but they also have to rehearse for the shows and then perform the shows. The shows are great fun and the dance routines wonderful. Bear in mind that you are not in the West End or on Broadway but in a hotel with a team that work exceptionally hard. They also encourage shy guests to get up and dance and stay on the dance floor making sure everyone is felt welcome. Lots of (mostly) ladies were dancing on their own and having a really good time. A big thank you to Smiley, the Entertainment Dog (not a real one) who made his appearance every night to entertain the children. Sunbeds are plentiful, however, the reason guests reserve sunbeds is that they have their favourite places to sunbathe whether by the main pool or in the lovely secluded alcoves that are dotted around the grounds. A lovely walk can be had (about 3 miles I was told) if you go down the hill to the Marina and at the barrier do a left and this will take you to Puerto del Carmen and then you can either get the courtesy bus back or a water taxi. The Marina is a bit of a walk back but as you come up the hill turn left where the pavement (where the back of the Costa Calero is) and enter through the Spa - just make sure you have your room key with you to get through the gate into the hotel itself. Cuts out most of the hill. Lots of lovely restaurants, cafes and bars down there plus all the millionaires yachts to drool over. There is free Wi-Fi but it is very hit and miss. In main reception it always works but in the room you can go for a couple of days with no connection. The TV's in the room now have ITV, BBC etc., so for all the Strictly Fans and X-Factor we were delighted. Getting ready for dinner and going out whilst watching Strictly !! My only complaint are the bad mannered guests who put their towels out after dinner, usually when the show had finished. People have complained on here about the towels going out before 8.00am or 5.00am - however, they should have walked around about 11.30 at night and see the 9 beds already reserved by the pool and other people 'creeping around' putting out their towels. So what's the answer to this bad habit which upsets everyone. The sensible thing would be for the hotel to sort this out. I emailed the hotel whilst I was there and received a reply. They don't want to get involved. All they have to do is put up a sign saying no towels should be left before say 7.00am and get security once a week to remove the towels, deposits would be lost (this would pay for the extra staff involved) and also move the sunbed to a different position which would then stop any guest aggression the next morning when they discover what they think is somebody else on their sunbed. This would soon sort out the problem. In case you were wondering I am ashamed to say that it was British people who were doing this. Young and old alike !!! I was with SAGA on this occasion and Valerie the rep does a fantastic job. Some reviewers have objected to Valerie making sure her clients are catered for first. But she is doing her job and looking after the older clientele. There are a lot of reps that could learn a lot from her. Everyone I have recommended this hotel to has made repeat visits. BUT, this is a lovely hotel with excellent staff who I have seen there for years and I wouldn't hesitate going back there - but won't put my towel out before the morning !!! :) :):)More

WOW What a hotel

Second visit to Lanzarote this year and another absolutely brilliant hotel. Can only think of one negative thing to say. Why is smoking allowed in the part of the restaurant which is part inside and part outside. Went in once and all I could taste was cigarette smoke. Surely there should be no smoking anywhere where there is food. This apart everything about this hotel is spot on and really five star.More

Had a great time

Cannot complain with the hotel at all. Service from all the staff was excellent from check in to check out. We were all inclusive and found the food at all meals to be of good quality and plentiful. Drinks were branded with a good choice. Bottles of wine with the evening meals were nice and drinkable. Our room was as far from the main part of the hotel you could get. Very quite and peaceful at most times of the day. Only noise coming from the activities that take place during the day.The cleaning staff kept the room spotless. The grounds and pools are also kept clean and tidy. Cannot comment on the Spa as never used it in the end. We did visit the marina for a coffee most morning and for a walk around. Also went to La Portena in the marina area on two night. More for a change of scenery which I can highly recommend. I had the best steak I have ever eaten there. Would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an all inclusive holiday.More

Very disappointing.

On arrival we were quite impressed with the hotel, lovely gardens and pools,everything very clean, our room was adequate and in a quite area. However it soon became apparent that this gloss didn't extend any further. The food was most uninspiring, very repetitive, at best only lukewarm, joints of meat were hacked to pieces and a lump thrown on your plate, food was never replenished quickly and mostly we would end up with just half a meal as the rest was missing. ( particularly bad at lunchtime ) Non - smokers beware, smoking is allowed in all outside areas ( apart from pool buffet) including outside seating of main restaurant this is encouraged by large ashtrays on every table, people smoked even if young children were sitting nearby and even when a lady was feeding her baby!! The hotel has a Piano Bar which has fantastic views from its terrace it would have been great to have had a coffee or quite pre-lunch drink but it didn't open until 6pm, only other option a few very noisy, smokey tables at the pool bar. We found most staff hard working and pleasant ( waiters & cleaners) any above them seemed to have a very bad attitude and didn't want to listen when any of the above was pointed out. Amongst all the glowing reviews it is noticeable that there are more people who are not so happy. Hopefully these will be taken notice of and addressed by the management.More
