Listed as 4* - we couldn't fault it for the price. Quiet area, room overlooked the sea, excellent buffet restaurant, staff were very efficient and friendly (agreed to post stuff home to me, that had been left behind). Very spacious room that we stayed in, with two outside terraces. We'll stay here again!

Located right on the edge of Costa Calma this hotel is really quiet and peaceful.
As it was quite cool most days, we didn't try the very inviting pool.
The staff were really nice; the bungalow was spotless and far exceeded our expectations; wonderful choice of food; very attentive helpful manager in Nicholas.
Only downside which didn't really bother us is it is nearly 1.5 miles to the nearest bus stop and 1hour 30 mins transfer from the airport (note to self, hire car next time!!)

Date of stay: February 2016

We were looking for somewhere to have a lazy peaceful week in the sun and that is just what we got. Weather was fantastic, bungalow was roomy and clean, I agree that the rooms need a kettle, not everyone drinks coffee. In January it's very quiet which suited us. We found ALL the staff to be very friendly and helpful, especially Nikolas the Manager. We were staying half board and the large choice & quality on the buffet was as you would find in most holiday hotels. We were happy too just walk along the beach but you would need to hire a car if you wanted to see more. There are no facilities for families but the larger hotel over the road has all the facilities you would need. We would be happy to return next year.

Excellent hotel which made our holiday most enjoyable. Friendly helpful reception staff and bungalow was clean and comfortable-except the pillows which were solid! We were self catering so can't comment on the restaurant food. Only gripe would be the kitchen equipment. Great microwave but no suitable dishes or jugs to use in it. Also there was no electric kettle -essential for tea drinking Scots-or milk jug. There was one small pot and two enormous ones so we boiled water in the small one for tea and poached eggs in the frying pan! It all added to the eccentricity but did not detract from our enjoyment of the resort and the hotel.

Room tip: Some are up very steep slopes. Second floor above reception has great views

PROS
nice bungalows with very functional private terrace, nice kitchen whith fridge and microwave oven
Very quite and trabquile place
Good sleeping quality (no noise at all almost the whole day)
Small supermarket (with high prices) inside the hotel
Free wifi just in the lobby (available at the room wit extra charge)

CONS
The hotel is 400m away from the beach.
Beware that Rooms with "sea view" have only partial sight over the sea, as there is a hotel in front of Esmeralda Maris, so you can only see the horizon, not the beach
The acces to tbe beaches is not easy, so be aware of this if you are travelling with children or eldwr people
Room clean up is made just 5 days a week
Shower gel and shampoo just delivered the they you enter the room, not the rest days. So better iif you get some from home or buy it locally
Dinner timetable is from 18:00 to 21:00h, and breakfast from 8 to10am, so may be you are not eating anything in 12h!!! Be carefull with this if you travel with children
Restaurant is closed for lunch (just opened for brakfast and dinner)
Meal qualitiy is poor and badly cooked
1€ to pay with every change of pool towel
No place inside the hotel to have a drink or a coffe. You must go to other hotel for that

The overall impression is that tbe place was nice in some moment in last yeras, as premises are really good, but currently they are trying to control costs by reducing service quality.

Room tip: Bungalows with "sea sight" are not what you imagine. Better views (just see horizon) from the upper rooms
