We stayed at this hotel in December and were pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. We have been to Costa Calma several times for a relaxing break and have always stayed at another hotel at the other end of the beach. Costa Calma is a quiet resort with few restaurants so most people are either self-catering or all-inclusive and the food was fine. Buffet meals with a choice of dining outside or inside the restaurant, smoking was allowed outside. At breakfast you filled your own coffee pot which was great for me and also hot milk was readily available for coffee, my only complaint was lack of pure orange juice, but there were superb oranges instead! With dinner your choice of wine was red, white or Rose and the waiters just brought you a bottle, the white is not recommended! The Rose is quite pleasant. There was a good choice of salad & meats without being 'over the top' so most people will find something to suit them.
The hotel can take a bit of getting used to as the floors number down the way - i.e you come in at reception then go down to most of the rooms!) There are also two sets of lifts so depending on your room number you may have to use a particular lift, but this is no great problem for most people.
Staff are friendly and helpful and although not all speak English they can usually get someone who can. In the main the guests are German though there were French, Italian and Polish there too. The majority of guests are more mature which means the hotel is relatively quiet at night and also the entertainment staff do not bully you into joining pool aerobics etc!
We had a side room which got the sun late afternoon. Room was very clean with a large, comfy bed and the bathroom was also a good size. This is one of the few hotels who actually adhere to their 'environmental policy and really don't change your towels unless you put them in the bath which is good. They also charge to change beach towels and half the money goes to the 'save the loggerhead turtle' campaign so I have no issue with that.
The hotel is above the beach slightly rather than directly on it so you have to walk down but the beach is fantastic for walking and you can go for miles.
All in all a pleasant hotel with good staff, lots of sitting areas, large clean rooms and one I would definitely go back to.
