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.

Brilliant hotel - go all inclusive !!

We had a wonderful week in the Costa Calero. This hotel is very high standard. Its extremely clean, has wonderful facilities and activities and the all-inclusive package is excellent. The food choices are great for breakfasat, lunch and dinner and on this package your drinks, snacks and ice-creams during the day and at mealtimes are included. The rooms are very nice and are cleaned every day. All the staff we dealt with were extremely helpful for our whole stay. We attended a wedding in the hotel which was absolutely brilliant. Its a great venue and we all had a ball for the whole day. The Puerto Calero marina is 5 minutes walk and there are some lovely bars and restaurants here for a change if you feel like it. I cant recommend this hotel highly enough. We will definitely be back.More

Lovely Holiday

My husband and I visited the holiday between 30th August and 6th September 2014 on an all inclusive basis and I wanted to write an honest review. Firstly I'll start with the good points: The hotel's setting is quiet, but we liked this and found it very relaxing to be away from all the hustle and bustle of bigger resorts. The nearby Marina is delightful and has a few lovely restaurants and bars + some designer shops and a supermarket. Secondly the hotel's swimming pools are amazing! There are 3 big pools to choose from + a small child's pool. All are in beautifully kept gardens and there were always plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas available whatever the time of day. We particularly liked that the sunbeds aren't in set rows and there are a few quiet areas to choose from. Our room was pleasant and spacious with lots of wardrobe space and a free fridge which was topped up with a large bottle of water daily. It was spotlessly clean and serviced to a high standard. We had a ground floor room that just overlooked a small garden area but we were happy enough with it. I had emailed ahead to request a sea-view as it was our wedding anniversary but I was told all the sea-view rooms were taken. The hotel did very kindly leave a bottle of cava in our bedroom for our anniversary though which was a nice touch. The all inclusive drinks were excellent, we were particularly impressed by the choice of good quality wines available at dinner and the branded spirits behind the bar. We received a free day pass to the hotel spa on check-in, which I would highly recommend using! We had a lovely relaxing 2 hours together chilling out in the spa, and during the week I also visited the spa for x2 massages which were very good value for money. Now, for the slightly negative comments: The food was good - and I always found something to eat at every meal, but for me there was no wow factor. I was a bit disappointed at the lack of freshly cooked meats such as steaks, or seafood. The theme nights (Italian and Chinese) were nice. The air conditioning in our room was poor. You couldn't choose a temperature setting, only 3 speeds. When on speed 3 the air con was noisy (I had to wear earplugs) and it still barely cooled the room enough. This was the biggest negative really. Also, beware that the hotel is a bit of a wedding factory. There were 4 wedding whilst we were there, which didn't really bother us but they do tend to take over the hotel a bit. There were fireworks at 10pm for each of the weddings which we enjoyed but I did wonder if people with sleeping children would have been so keen..? In summary though, we did have a lovely relaxing holiday and I would give the hotel overall a score of 4 out of 5.More

Almost...... but not quite!

Recently returned from a 2 week, AI stay at Costa Calero. Very friendly welcome on arrival and I was directed to a room on the 4th floor with marina and sea view. The room was large with a nice balcony and bottled water supplied daily. The maid service was excellent. The air conditioning was poor and very noisy. The hotel grounds are beautiful with a good choice of pools and no problem getting a sunbed. Food was better some days than others. Loved the salads and plenty of fresh fruit on offer. The main dining room could be a bit better organised though. There was always congestion around the show cooking area. There is no a la carte restaurant. Drinks on AI were very good with the exception of the cocktails (which were of the pre mixed variety). Only one bar, the Piano bar, inside the hotel. This opened at 6pm, so you had to go outside to the pool bar if you wanted anything during the day. The bar at the entertainment area opened at 9pm, so the Piano bar could get very busy in the early evenings. The staff in both bars really struggled to cope and at times there could be quite a wait for drinks. Some of the entertainment was excellent, and some (as in most hotels) not worth watching. The first few days of my holiday were during the last few days of the English school holidays, and it was amusing to see everything change on 1st September. Out went the huge pool inflatables, and in came Saga! Even the evening dress code in the restaurant changed on Sep 1st, and men had to wear long trousers from that date. The marina is very pretty, but be warned that the walk back up to the hotel is extremely steep. In conclusion, I had a lovely holiday but would only return if I got a good deal.More

Great hotel! Would definitely recommend!

I stayed at Costa Calero with my boyfriend (both aged 21) for two weeks (all inclusive) in August. It was the first time we had visited Lanzarote. The reason we chose this hotel was because of the great reviews that we had read. On arrival (about 9pm) we weren’t disappointed with the first view of the hotel, we went to check in where we were told we could go for dinner quickly before checking in as dinner closed at 10pm which was handy as we were very hungry! When checking in the staff at reception were very helpful. We had been given a room on the fifth floor with an excellent sea view, which we had requested via email prior to our visit which we were very pleased about! Great start to the holiday! When checking in we sorted out our safe as we knew we definitely wanted one. This cost 2 euro’s a day with a 5 euro deposit which we got back at the end of the holiday (this pays for the safe key which you can use in case you forget your pin). Within the welcome pack we were also given our free WIFI code to use up in our room, and a free pass each to use the Spa for 2 hours. Room – Our room (549) was lovely! Fantastic view, plenty of space for clothes in the wardrobe, comfy bed and a nice sized bathroom. We had a fridge which was stocked up with fresh bottles of water everyday by the cleaner. Fresh towels on request. The cleaner kept our room spotless. So thank you for that! Pools – There are 3 main pools and one kiddies pool. All of the pools were very clean and well maintained. They were pretty cold but this was quite refreshing after sitting out in the hot weather! There is no issue at all getting a sun bed as there are plenty to go round. We would go down at 9 after reserving our sun beds earlier and there were more sun beds unreserved than reserved, which is very unusual! Even after coming back from a day trip during the day we didn’t have a trouble finding sun beds. Spa – The spa was lovely! Definitely recommend using the free visit! We went after we had a day out at the market as we thought it would be a relaxing end to the day, and we weren’t wrong! It was a very relaxing atmosphere. You have to wear swimming hats which can be quite amusing but a sensible idea. Food – There was a wide variety of food for every meal, always something for everyone to enjoy. In the evenings there were occasionally theme nights. Whilst we were there we had a Chinese and Mexican night. Two evenings while we were there they had two chocolate fountains for dessert! A white chocolate and milk chocolate one with a variety of sweets and fruit to dip into them. This was my best dessert of the holiday!! Bars – There are two pool bars which people use throughout the day. You are able to get a wide selection of drinks including alcoholic and non alcoholic slush puppies which we enjoyed lots of! They also have small pots of ice-cream, cake and cheese and ham toasties which were cooked to order. Entertainment Team – The entertainment team were great! They always had so much energy and kept the children and adults thoroughly entertained throughout the day and evening! During the day there are a variety of activities and games to join in with including – water aerobics, zumba, shooting, water polo, inflatable games in the pool and many many more! The entertainment team would come round and tell you which activity was then about to happen in case you wanted to join in. They didn't pressurise you into joining in at all which often happens at hotels. Evenings – The evening entertainment in the hotel was usually great! We enjoyed watching the Mini Disco at 9.15pm before the show started at 10pm. Some shows were put on by the entertainment team and others were acts from outside of the hotel. We watched – The Lion King which was superb! A definite watch if this is on when you stay. The Abba show and the Flamenco dancers were also really good. The only let down for us was the Michael Jackson show. We thought this would be a great show, but it was mixed in with Motown Songs which took over the evening. ‘Michael Jackson’ came out for literally about 4 songs and we never saw him again. If you prefer a quieter evening then the Piano Bar is the place to go. They often have different musicians playing each night which makes a lovely relaxing atmosphere. Staff – The staff at the hotel were always very friendly and helpful! They all work very hard especially in the restaurant where they are always clearing plates and getting drinks for families as soon as they are seated. You won’t get asked if you want a second drink but always feel free to ask for one. In the bars the waiters are constantly clearing glasses and taking drinks orders to save you going up to the bar. However some waiters would take about 10 drinks orders which mean you had to probably wait longer for your drink than if you went to the bar. But usually service was reasonably quick and when we finished our drinks we were always asked if we would like another one. Location – The hotel is situated in the quiet port of Puerto Calero. The Marina is a 5 minute walk from the hotel. As previous reviews have stated the walk is downhill, so coming back up the hill takes a little longer. There are a variety of restaurants and bars down at the marina that looked very nice even though we didn't try them there were many others who did as they were always full! Alongside the bars are a few designer shops, a trinket shop and the local supermarket. Puerto Del Carmen – This is about a 10 minute drive from the hotel. Puerto Del Carmen is full of restaurants, bars and lots of shops! We always got a taxi to and from which cost around 7-10 euros each way. Or you could get the free bus which the hotel organise. On one occasion we went on a boat trip from the Marina which cost 6 euros per person each way or 10 euros for a return ticket. I would recommend this as you get some lovely views out at sea, and if you are lucky you might get a glimpse of dolphins! Excursions – We booked three trips through our Thomson Rep Michelle who was very helpful with these bookings and full of useful information to help us make the most out of our trips! We went to Rancho Texas Animal Park, Teguise Market and the full day Volcano trip. If you are a fan of markets then the Teguise Market trip is a must! There are about 350 stalls selling a variety of bags, purses, sunglasses, scarves, jewellery, hair accessories and lots of trinkets. We really enjoyed our time there and were glad we had booked it through our Rep as getting a taxi there and back would have worked out quite expensive! The Volcano trip was also a great trip, although it felt like we were on the coach for most of the day! We had a number of different stops along the way up to the volcano including – a wine tasting place, an Aloe Vera centre which is very popular in Lanzarote, and other tourist points such as the green lagoon and the kings swimming pool. You also stop off at a buffet restaurant for lunch which was included in the price. When we got to the Volcano we stayed on the coach and had a tour around the craters which was very high up and on some very narrow roads! We then got off and had a fire and steam demonstration. After that it was time to go to the toilet and get back on the coach to go to the hotel! We felt that the actual volcano part could have lasted a lot longer as we were literally there for 15 minutes and that was the main reason why we had booked the trip. However I would recommend going on the trip as volcanoes are a very important part of Lanzarote! Also if you get the tour guide we had then the trip will be hilarious! Not sure of his name but he was constantly giving us funny information about the island which was great! The Rancho Texas Animal Park was my boyfriend’s choice and I found it surprisingly good! I would say that this Park is more for the entertainment factor rather than being a Zoo like what we are used to at home. This said though the bird, sea lion and the very amusing parrot show were all very good and well choreographed. I would also recommend the food there as they were large servings and very tasty! Other than that the Zoo was very clean and tidy even if the animals did look a bit worn out in the heat! Overall a great holiday, which I would definitely recommend!More

Travel Consultant's Opinion

I work for Thomas Cook and won this hotel on a road show event a weeks all inclusive, I only had to pay for the flights and transfers! This hotel is perfect if you just want to chill out with all your food and drink included, people have moaned that it is repititive but its going to be if you are eating at the same place for the week. Breakfast you had so much choice such as cereals, fruit, scrambled eggs, omelettes, bacon, pancakes covered in chocolate sauce, toast, continental such as ham and cheese. Lunch time you could have burgers, pizza, vegetables, potatoes, salad, rice, pasta dishes etc and dinner range of meats including fish, pizza, pasta, salad, chips, bread and loads of different cakes for desert with icecream and white/milk chocolate buttons. Some evenings they would do a themed night for example one evening they had a chinese night which had noodles, spring rolls, rice, duck etc. There is always something for everyone if not you can go down the marina for a meal a few restaurants to pick from down there reasonably priced too. The room was very spacious and the balcony was huge compared to other hotels I have visited! The room has TV also hairdryer in the bathroom and minibar stocked with bottle of water daily. The room is cleaned daily one day we came back to towels in the shape of an elephant which was cute. The hotel is in Puerto Calero which is a marina with a few shops, bars and restaurants very upmarket. You can also get a free shuttle bus to Puerto del carmen which runs throughout the day. Here you will find many shops, bars and restaurants it is alot more livelier than Puerto Calero so if you want to venture out here is the place to go. The only problems we incurred were what we called the 3 WS Wifi, weddings and wonky tables. The wifi signal isnt great but your on holiday get off your phones lol! One night we were woken by a very noisy bunch of Irish people who were having a wedding at the hotel I understand they were having fun but 4am in the morning when there were families with children I thought this was disrespectful singing at the top of their voices. Other than that a fantastic hotel with lovely spa facilities I had the chocolotherapy massage which is hot chocolate poured over your body (not recommended if you have sunburn lol) then they put you in a wrap and let the chocolate soak in. After that you have a shower to rinse the chocolate off then you are massaged with chocolate mousse, it was a very relaxing treatment. My mum had foot refloxogy which was perfect for her as she had achy feet afterwards she felt very relaxed. Would definetly return in a dash, missing lanzarote so much not even been back a week!!More
