Just returned from 9 nights at the Calista with friends.
As has been noted the hotel is very attractive with all amenities on site. The bars were good with all premium brands availabe.
The staff were almost all very helpful and attentive.
As there were nine adults in our party we took the decision to eat in the a la carte restaurants each night. While I am sure the buffet was vey fine we felt it was more relaxed in the speciality restaurants. The Sakura Asian restaurant was our favourite food and staff excellent. The only one to which I would attribute negative comment to would be Timo the Italian restaurant. Maybe we were just unlucky that night but the service was poor and the food at best average.The barbeque was fun.
My only serious gripe would be the room although as has been commented many times you don't go on holiday to spend hours in your room.
The bedroom area was not nearly as spacious as noted on the web site. Ours was compact with no bed end sette which is noted as standard. A biger letdown was the bathroom. We anticipated that a hotel which markets itself as luxury would have separate walk in shower cubicles. Ours in fact had a shower hose attached to the bath taps. To add insult to injury the shower head was the smallest and least powerful in any hotel I have stayed in. The flow was so insiped that we were required to stand so close to the end where the shower was located that our knees were up against the taps!
Our friends who also booked standard rooms did have the benefit of a much larger bedroom area together with walk in shower.
I would advise that you clarify matters with reception at time of allocation if this is important to you.
We were situated in room 2422.
