The hotel was much smaller than we expected but in the best of ways. It was not crowded, the rooms were like your own private igloos and each one had a lovely bathroom with a jacuzzi. There was an outside lounge are private to each room with deck chairs which was blissful. Service was good, we had some issues when checking in as they had only reserved one room instead of the two rooms we had booked but this was sorted quite quickly. Food in the restaurant was of a great quality.

Tired with all those hotels where you enter and you have a bathroom on the left or right, a cupboard opposite and then the bedroom area leading if you are lucky to a balcony?
Well this hotel is made up of individual ground floor suites, each with a private courtyard (with a shower in a recess) from which you access the accommodation. An great architectural experience greets you: a domed bathroom with a jacuzzi overlooking the courtyard, curved ceilings to the bedroom and wardrobe area, and a living room with large curved windows overlooking the gardens and pools! The finishes are not the greatest: they still have painted textured wallpaper which is geared more to the German market instead of the painted smooth plaster finishes which we are now used to. One is prepared to overlook these very minor issues as the spaces are generous and interesting and probably bigger than the average small London flat!

We wanted a break with consistent sunshine, where we would find peace and quiet together with good service and nice surroundings. This hotel delivered - the 'pod' like separate apartments gave privacy and plent of space if you didn't want to go far, while there were indoor and outdoor swimming pools, terraces and spa facilities on site. The beaches were from 10 to 20 minutes walk, depending on whether you felt like making for the very quiet areas slightly further along the coast, but whichever beach you used there were little cafes for a drink and snack. Most of the holiday makers we saw were German and the hotel food reflected that in the menu choices, but the meals were good - we had half board - with outstanding breakfast options. And the housekeeping and cleaning was very thorough - when on the first day she saw we were English a kettle appeared beside the coffee maker! The grounds and gardens were perfectly maintains too, with plenty of birds. Apart from the slightly hard beds and lumpy fibre pillows it was very comfortable indeed, and all the waiters were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: We liked the 201-217 row, as it led further from the dining and bar areas

We were allowed to check in early. The superior junior suite was everything we could hope for, clean, recently decorated, with all the details listed on the room details. The wifi was free in the public areas but a unit which allowed it to be obtained anywhere was only 1.5 euro per day. The sitting room and patio had an excellent view across the gardens to the sea. It is a short walk to the beach.
The circular heated indoor pool although small had a water jet that provided a current to swim against.
There was a good selection of things for breakfast. There was no waiting for the chef to cook eggs to order at breakfast and the chef delivered them to the table. The other waiting staff were also excellent..
We did not eat in the main restaurant but ate in the terraza del gato where the food was very good and the service second to none.

We had a very relaxing week at this hotel and it was great all I expected. Loads of room, personal space, beautiful garden and pools, friendly staff good food. My only disappointment was the resort of Costa Calma, no heart or soul, too many all inclusive hotels, not much choice for evening meals we went b& b should have gone half board.

Costa Calma has no town center, but there are a few small shopping center and also a few really good restaurants near by the hotel.
