The location is great but the service is really poor. Always have the feeling you are enjoying them with your questions. At breakfast not even real coffee... Have the feeling they are very complaisant of the great location of the hotel at the costs of being nice and friendly. We have been to many hotels on the island and always... More

As stated by others the place is rather new and has many good points. These include an excellent location in the village, efficient front desk staff, free covered parking, decent breakfast and very large modern room. So far so good. However some other aspects are definitely not on par with the supposed 4 stars level: first the shower has been... More

My girlfriend and I went there mid October 2014 to stay for 8 days but decided to leave after three days because Valle Gran Rey is very small and we didn’t feel the Hotel Playa Calera was great value for money. It is not expensive per se (we paid about €120 per night for the room) but we felt some... More

We stayed three nights on a walking holiday and travelled independently. Our room was large and well equipped with a kitchenette and lots of storage cupboards. The car park is underneath the hotel and secure. Breakfast was poor with machine coffee that was undrinkable. We ended up taking our own instant coffee to breakfast and adding hot water. Given the...

This is a fairly new, smart hotel, with large, well-equipped, stylish rooms. The rooftop pool is just wonderful - being able to swim overlooking the sea in between the hotel's palm trees is a treat. The situation is quite good, being near to shops and restaurants, but remaining fairly quiet. The breakfast could have been better - for example, the... More

Spotless, spacious rooms and a great sunset views from the rooftop pool. Excellent and extensive breakfast buffet. Staff friendly and helpful. Noisy kids in the pool occasionally interrupted an otherwise very peaceful stay.

We came for a relaxing 6 night stay. The room was large and clean, and we had a good sea view, and staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast buffet was always delicious and restaurant staff were friendly. The rooftop pool is absolutely beautiful - clean, well maintained, great view. Only downside was that there were a lot of very loud... More
