“Nice, clean and quiet place to stay in!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

It was a really good choice to book my trip at Apartamentos Calma. Nice, clean and quiet place to stay in and a very nice staff. Close to the beach and with no need to walk far away to get some stuff. For sure I'll come back here.

Room Tip: You'll get a nicer view of the beach and suroundings from higher floors.

Just back from a week In Playa and stayed at the Calma. Spacious, very clean and a nice location not far from the beach. Well equipped for self catering with fridge ,hob, toaster, microwave and plenty of pots and pans etc. Apartment had air con, though didn't need it in Feb. Tv with BBC news (remote control is 5 euro deposit at reception)
Friendly staff too, would not hesitate to return. Only slight possible problem is the reception is only open limited hours. I think 10am till 1pm, then 4pm till 6pm. I had good flight times so wasn't a problem, but you will need to make arrangements with the reception if you will be arriving outside these times ( email apartmentoscalma@gmail.com)

Room Tip: High floor has sea view

We spent a week here in late February to catch some early sun. Location is good, being in a reasonably quiet part of town with plenty of restaurants and small bars nearby. It is situated close to the Playa Del Ingles promenade which runs above the beach for several miles in both directions from this area and is a very pleasant way of spending a day viewing the local scene, as well as providing a easy way to the town centre and the suberb beaches.

There is a bus stop outside the apartments, as well as a bus terminus within 200 yards and these provide immediate access to the very efficient bus system covering the island at reasonable prices - much cheaper that the UK. Local taxis are plentiful, clean and cheap - the cost into the centre of town costing around 3 euros.

The apartment was very clean and tidy, surprisingly large and well equipped with microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee-maker, fridge and a sufficient selection of crockery and cutley. All the apartments have a balcony with a table and chairs. One small niggle was the quality of the beds themselves - slightly uncomfortable for our old bones!

Wi Fi is available in the apartment for a charge BUT FREE in the reception area and around the swimming pool, which is large and supplied with sunbeds. However, and another small niggle, there are no mattresses for the sunbeds and thus sunbathing is uncomfortable whilst lying on a plastic surface covered only by a towel!

The apartment staff are really friendly and helpful, in particular I should mention Anna who provided advice and help and had time for everyone - thank you.

All in all, a very pleasant and relaxing location, providing excellent value for money, the weather was also good - between 21 and 27 degrees.

Stayed at Calma apartments 6th January till 20th January 2014. Very friendly staff who replied promptly to emails I sent. Requests I made were met fully. The whole complex is spotlessly clean. Never known a place with so much constant hot water before. Excellent.Apartments have everything you need. All have sunny balcony, which is what you take a holiday for in winter. Adequatly equipped with fridge, kettle/coffe maker. Ample plates cutlery, and cooking utensils.Nice pool area, and free WI-FI. Quiet complex, yet central to everything. Bus station nearby with good transport links to other parts of Gran Canaria. Would have no hesitation staying there again.

Room Tip: We prefer high floor, and this is what we requested and got. All rooms have sunny balcony facing sou...

Apartamentos Calma, great Location , spent 12 days over new years eve till January 11th.
Staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive . Very quite complex which is good if you want to get a quite sleep. The mini apartment was fully furnished with basics but overall satisfactory .
Wi-fi in common area and available in rooms with a small charge , The idea when you go on holiday is to get away from the web too so we did not mind.
Room service available although not everyday. I would recommend Calma apartments, our purpose was to discover the island therefore we did not mind if within the complex there were not bars or many people wondering around the pool and patio.
Ideal for couples.

Stayed here two years ago and was worried by alot of the reviews, however upon arrival was pleasantly suprised well maintained good location in a quiet part of busy town. Good spacious apartments only downside was maid she was very very rude and scolded myself and boyfriend when she saw a towel on the floor shouting at us to pick it up then giving out in spainish! Felt like two young children!! All in all great value for money and would advise anyone who wishes for a cheep and cheerful holiday to book these apartments without hesitation :)
