I stayed with my partner from Thursday 19th for 4 days after cancelling staying at La Calma in Can Pastilla due to their reviews and what it looked like on Google earth etc and stayed Full board. Usually do All Inc everywhere else.
We arrived at 11.30am on the Thursday and they let us check in straight away. Lady on reception very friendly and explained everything to us. As not many people on Full Board informed to go into restaurant overlooking the beach and order anything from the menu for our lunches ( nice as felt like going out for lunch and as you could sit outside overlooking the beach ).
The room was small and a bit tired but adequate hangers and everything we needed except air con. Our balcony overlooked the pool ( same level ) as we had requested adn we could see the sea too. Did not use the pool as too small and not many sunbeds. However the beach is straight across the road so no worries. First night was very very hot and did not sleep much. It is also in a busy area so can be noisy. We asked for a fan second day and this resolved the heat mostly. Still too hot to sit in room though. shower changed and out as quick as we could.
The breakfast was ok. mostly European sort. did have scrambled egg ( not nice ) sausage toast etc but we just had toast or croisants.
Evening meals were nice. not too much choice but you had plenty except they could have put potatoes on as chips gets a bit boring. However what there was was good quality. Staff were again very friendlt and always chatting smiling etc. Lunch meals in restaurant were nice and you could add things not on menu no problem. Again staff helpfull and friendly.
We often sat outside hotel at front people watching and relaxing with a beer or two. Did go to the English bars ( the couple that there are ) but as we have been to Arenal many times for short breaks decided to try the Dutch bars for a change and had some fun in those. Resort very busy and relaxed no lager louts just people having fun without being legless even at 4 in the morning.
Overall would consider agin but might go back to All Inc hotels as spent a fortune on drinks and we are not major drinkers.
