La Calma
Ranked #3 of 17 Hotels in Ribadesella
Reviewed 22 March 2013

We stayed for one night as part of a brief tour of Asturias. The room and facilities were perfect, modern and spotlessly clean. Morelia, our host, was attentive and personable and provided us with lots of good recommendations and information for our ongoing trip. We have no hesitation in recommending La Calma and hope to stay there again in the future.

We found this place in toprural.com while spending a few days this August in Asturias. La Calma is a beautiful "casa rural" in which you can immediately feel at home. Although more expensive than other lodgings we were considering, we decided to book it as it is a completely different experience, it looks like a 5 star hotel, everything decorated with great taste. You need only look at their web page to see what I mean.

Morelia, the owner of the place, is an excellent host and certainly helps making you feel at home. She provided great tips both for eating and visiting in the area. We didn't have time to book a massage at La Calma (they provide this service), as we only stayed one night, but we surely will when we go next to Ribadesella.

The bed was extremely comfortable, something extremely important for a good night of sleep and that you don't always find in this type of places. The only thing we missed was a bathtub for a relaxing bath aft a long day walking around! (our room only had a shower)

Excellent place, highly recommended!

Javier

Thank you very much for you comments on La Calma. Although it was only a night as you mention it was a pleasure to meet you both. And how lucky that we had one left ...You are such adventurers visiting this area in August with no previous bookings !!

All the best wishes for both of you. Hope to see you again.

Lots of love,

Morelia

The owner was very polite and helpful, the hotel was small, quiet and beautifull but there is certainly room for improvement. For example if you have such a nice plase close to the nature (as this hotel is) you should be enriching the breakfast with fresh products (e.g. fresh juise to start with!). In general the breakfast needs to be imroved.The room was a little bit cold and I did not like that the coffee and the tea were under charge.

Besides that, the hotel is decent.

My husband and I began our trip to Spain at the quaint town of Ribadesella and stayed three nights at La Calma for some rest and relaxation in the country. La Calma was a wonderful place to unwind after all of our traveling and the town provided great insight for Asturian life on the coast. The rooms were very clean and the fixtures were updated. Morelia has a warmth about her which really makes you feel at home. Breakfast was plentiful and a tasty way to start the day of exploring all the small towns in the area and the coastline's picturesque beaches. Both she and Teresa gave us great restaurant recommendations and day trip ideas. Morelia suggested having lunch at the Mirador's San Roque restaurant in the town of Lastres. It provides a stunning view of the Bay of Biscay while dining on the freshest seafood and wine. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in Ribadesella thanks to the tranquil atmosphere of La Calma and its surroundings.

We stayed one night at La Calma and it was a fantastic experience - only wished we could have stayed longer. The massage and the gourmet dinner at a local restaurant (all part of the package) was wonderful! The rooms are beautifully furnished and the coffee machine in the room was a real bonus. This is a place to go to get away from it all and unwind. Highly recommended!!

The first thing you will notice about La Calma is the warm welcome. The owner, Morelia, goes out of her way to make sure you get the most from this lovely Spanish region with maps, guide books and a great knowledge of local restaurants. She definitely offers a personal service.
it's a shame, therefore, that the rest of La Calma doesn't quite live up to the reviews posted here. The aim is to feel completely relaxed in the rooms but we found there weren't enough creature comforts to make it truly cosy. When we visited in March it was quite cold and, despite the heating supposedly coming on, we were chilly, even at night. There were also no robes so we were left "relaxing" watching DVDs in our jeans and jumpers. The lighting is also poor - the rooms need a couple of decent lamps as the overhead light makes watching DVDs difficult because you are peering into a bright light. And there was only one tiny towel each in the bathroom which is not ideal if you have long hair to wash. These sound like superficial things but if you're planning on spending a lot of time relaxing in the rooms, they do make a difference...and would be so simple to fix.
Otherwise, the region is lovely. Don't miss the tiny town of Villaviciosa and the beaches along the coastline. We also liked Colunga for a quick tapas stop.
