"Highly recommended. Calm, relaxing - near beach."
We stayed in a Senior suite which is exactly as described on the web site. The hotel is truly lovely with fabulous staff.
The beach is only a 3 minute walk plus many restaurants and bars all within 5- 15 minutes. However you have the best restaurant in Costa Calma on your doorstep... The Terraza Del Gato, do not miss it!
This was our first visit to the Esmeralda Maris but have stayed in the Esmeralda Hotel opposite for the past 14 years. It was a great experience for us doing self-catering, although on this occasion breakfast was included which was superb with plenty of food on offer, including cooked breakfast. The apartment was roomy with a good third bed in the lounge for the third person in our party. We did have our evening meal in the Restaurant of the Maris which was reasonable but felt we could do our own cooking for the rest of our stay which worked out so reasonably priced with good cooking facilities in our apartment. We could then enjoy our evening meal at our leisure on the superb balcony with wonderful sea views. We would recommend the Esmeralda Maris to everybody and we will certainly be back there next year - probably for two visits . You cannot get better surroundings and scenery than the Costa Calma. Thank you for your help in booking this for us.

The room first allocated to us did not have any view and the outside space was adjacent to a dusty track to the beach but when we pointed out that we had booked on the basis that it was a room with a pool view one was found and the staff were very helpful.
A nice quiet hotel with no kids running about.
My only gripe was the dress code for the un-fancy dinner buffet. I was sent back to put on long trousers despite other men also wearing shorts & some women wearing very short shorts.
Direct access to sandy beach bay. You walk down a few stairs and you are on the beach and close to the water. Being close to the hotel and the beach enabled us to enjoy the All Inclusive offer (cocktails, lunch, snacks). You can rent out 2 sun chairs + sunshade for 13.50€ a day or ask for discounts for more days. We paid 32€ for 3 days.
The food and drinks were really nice, international and of good quality. Each day is different and surprising – ranging from Paella, Chocolate Fondue, Sushi to German “Brotzeit” with “Sauerkraut” and Würstchen”. We were also surprised that Cocktails such as Gin Tonic, Mojito and Tequila Sunrise were included in the offer.
There pool activities, beach volleyball, shows, dancing to yoga. You can play basketball, football, paddle/tennis , billiards, chess and mini golf. Equipment can be borrowed at the reception. A Spa Day (whirlpool, sauna, steam, pool) can be bought for 12€ per day as well as massages and hair cuts.
SPAR is situated left to Tindaya, Pharmacy is 30min by walk, a doctor is at the hotel in the morning and afternoon from Mon-Fri. PADI and ATM is at the R2 Hotel to the right of Tindaya. Windsurfing and Kitesurfing to the left of the hotel 30min by foot.
This quiet purpose-built resort marks the start of the Playa de Sotavento, a golden sandy beach that stretches for many miles, becoming picture-postcard perfect at neighbouring Risco del Paso. The beach may be less dramatic at this point but is has good facilities with sunshades, shops and a choice of beach bars close by. Windsurfing is very popular here with a school right in front of the hotels.
