“new year 2012”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

My wife and I stayed ther over new year. Hotel has lovely roof top pool
and is in a great location
There's an extra charge for room safe €18 p week is greedy as hotel is not cheap
and wifi only works in lobby no phone coverage in bedroom. Breakfast is only fair. To say the bar is quiet ...I asked for a glass of wine at 10.40 pm new year eve and was told it was closed.
I would go back to la Calera, but I think I'd try other hotels.

Excellent staff and beautiful modern-style hotel, with a HUGE room including kitchenette. Superb buffet breakfast. Very helpful reception staff. Only a short distance to the beach at Playa Ingles. Lots of great shops close by.

The playa calera is nestled at the end of the spectacular Valle gran rey in the quiet resort of the same name..and that's what you get:quiet
The hotel is a modern and very spacious affair with huge rooms and a fantastic roof pool and very efficient and friendly staff that is mainly patronised by well heeled Germans (good sign in my book)
The location is excellent with the sea and beach on one side and the mountains on the other.
If you are looking for lively night life and 'animation team' style entertainment then forget la gomera but if you're after peace and quiet in a beautiful setting then la calera is a gem
Pros: setting, hotel facilities, ambiance
Cons: limited bars and restaurants

We stayed for 3 nights over New Year at the end of a walking holiday. This area of Val Gran Rey was just lovely. A sheltered beach on one side, a rocky / wavy nudist beach on the other and a mini resort with restaurants shops in between. It's about a mile stroll along the front to the ferry to San Sebastian, Playa Santiago or Los Christianos (in Tenerife). The hotel is a little out of place in the surroundings. Slightly too big/ tall / corporate. However the pool on the roof is a great place to swim watching the colours change on the mountains and sea as the sun sets. The rooms were a nice surprise - very spacious, good quality furniture, huge comfy beds and a kitchen. We lucked out with a terrace where you could see and hear the sea. The front of the hotel could do with softening up with greenery and maybe a water feature. We booked half board but changed our mind when we got there. We were allowed to change the booking to bed and breakfast which was good. No complaints with the breakfast. The hotel put on dancing, fizz and party bags for midnight on New Year's Eve which was appreciated. There is free wifi but it only works in the reception.
