Positioned out on a rocky promontory overlooking the magnificent beaches in the southeast of Fuerteventura, the H10 Playa Esmeralda deserves praise for its location alone. Everything about the place is calm and peaceful, and the amount of organised activities and entertainment strikes just the right balance. This establishment is therefore perfectly suited to families and couples who wish to recharge their batteries in a relaxing setting.

    Location 6.75 /10

    Costa Calma is a small seaside resort village in the southeast of Fuerteventura. Just like the rest of the island, it always seems to be springtime in this area, which enjoys warm, fine weather all year round. The town is 40 mi south of the airport and 43 mi from the capital, Puerto del Rosario. Transfers from the airport to the hotel take around 50 minutes. The establishment shares its location with numerous other hotels, not far from the motorway and just next to the ocean.

    Accommodation 7.50 /10

    The hotel has 314 double rooms, 17 junior suites, and 2 suites. Relatively spacious, they are all decorated more or less in the same very standard fashion with brick coloured tiling on the floors, yellow walls, yellow and blue curtains, and a bedspread in the same colours. Paintings of flowers add a bit of life to the setting. One good thing about the rooms is that almost all of them enjoy views over the beautiful sea. The amenities are perfectly adequate, consisting of a wide-screen satellite television, direct international phone line, individual air-conditioning, a safe and a minibar that can both be used for a fee, and a balcony furnished with deckchairs and armchairs. The bathroom has a bathtub partitioned off from the toilet and bidet, plus a hair-dryer and hospitality products. A pair of bathrobes is also provided.

    Overview 7.50 /10

    The H10 Playa Esmeralda opened in 2010. Located in a large yellow and light ochre building 4 storeys tall, it looks both clean and new. The lobby is very nicely decorated in an oriental style, with friezes made of white, blue, and yellow tiles. Light flows in through a skylight in the ceiling, which is lined with light-coloured wooden planks. In the middle of the space there is a large fountain also decorated with square tiles. A huge picture window offers unobstructed views of the turquoise ocean. Outside, there is a large asymmetrical swimming pool for adults next to a little round pool reserved for children. Not far away, you will find a second pool for adults, this one heated and indoors. A whirlpool bath is also part of the facilities and parasols, deckchairs, and towels are all freely available. The seats are spaced well apart so you can relax in a certain amount of privacy. Young children can either play at the mini-club, Daisy, or out in the open air playground, while older ones can try out the tennis court or play mini-golf on the course provided. You can round off the day by winding down in the relaxation area or enjoying a sauna session. Detoxing need not be a gruelling experience, after all.

    Food and drink 7.50 /10

    The main restaurant, Jandia, is named after another of Fuertevenura's seaside resorts, this one even further to the south of Costa Calma. It serves buffets featuring dishes prepared by show-cooking chefs. The decor is pretty, once more including tile friezes reminiscent of the Arabic style. The tables are also just the right distance apart, neither too close or too far away from one another. Best of all, the restaurant has a large terrace overlooking the Atlantic. The selection of meat and fish dishes, vegetables, starters, and desserts is perfectly adequate, and there is a self-service policy when it comes to drinks. Another catering option is provided by the snack bar, La Choza, which serves pizzas, hot dogs, and various sandwiches, which are free for guests staying on the all-inclusive formula but must be paid for la carte by half-board guests. The bar, Maxorata, can be found near the swimming pool. In the evening, you can choose between listening to live music at the lobby bar, which has a pretty terrace, and watching shows at the bar/nightclub, Pajara.

    Beach 7.25 /10

    It is hard to resist the appeal of Playa Esmeralda beach, which is actually lapped by waters more turquoise than the emerald suggested in the name. The sliver of white sand, the clear, warm water, and the peacefulness of the setting tick all the right boxes. It really is a very safe place, the current is not too strong, and the sand is good quality. It is all conducive to spending wonderful afternoons warmed under the gentle sun that shines over Fuerteventura.

    To know

    It is worth bearing in mind that the beach below the hotel is open to the public and is frequented by tourists who like to stroll along wearing only their birthday suits. Indeed, nudists don't actually have a specific area of the beach set aside specifically for them.

      This 4-star hotel is a bit of a mixed bag overall, and doesn't really seem to have the means to live up to its promise. The hotel building is certainly impressive, and suggests that the establishment wishes to do things on a grand scale, and in some areas, it is successful. Overall, it is a pleasant hotel in an ideal location overlooking the beautiful sea.
