R2 Rio Calma Hotel is set in a flower-filled garden, mimicking its oasis-like surroundings on the Costa Calma, Fuerteventura. This is the second-largest resort on the island and your nearest beach, complete with shallow, warm water, is steps away from the hotel. There are three outdoor pools to choose from, including a relaxing lagoon and a heated infinity pool where you can look out over the sea. Here, you can lounge on the sun terrace with a refreshing drink. The buffet restaurant is open for three meals a day, with a different cuisine every evening such as Italian, Spanish and Asian. Alternatively, you could book a table at the a la carte restaurant. There are several bars to choose between, including two pool bars, so you never have to walk far from your favoured sunbathing spot. The lobby bar is open all day for soft drinks, hot drinks, beer and cocktails. In the evenings there's a pub, and a little later you can enjoy the disco bar, which is open until late. During the day you can keep active at the gym. You could also take part in one of the organised fitness classes, or play outdoor sports such as volleyball and football. For a little pampering, you might like to visit the indoor spa area, with a Turkish bath, a steam room and a sauna, or treat yourself to a facial and a manicure. The hotel puts on nightly entertainment including live shows and music all year round, and there are two kids' clubs to keep children entertained during the day and in the evenings.

Playa de Sotavento is 500m from the hotel, and is 9km of sweeping, sandy beach that stretches out to sea when the tide is out. It's a favourite with visitors for swimming, walking and sunbathing. The sand barriers further offshore create a shallow lagoon, making it a popular place for water-based sports. The sandy Costa Calma coastline, backed by hotels, palms and flowers, is 1km away, with its calm, shallow waters attracting plenty of families. At low tide you can walk between several other connected sandy coves. The best view of the beach and its lagoons in the sand is from the large viewpoint overlooking the cove. In the resort itself, you'll find restaurants, pubs and bars, as well as two shopping centres. The most popular is the Sotavento shopping centre, which has plenty of clothes outlets, a supermarket and souvenir shops, while the other stores are in a covered market.

The hotel's buffet restaurant opens for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu includes familiar food such as hot dogs, hamburgers and pizza for children. You can choose to dine al fresco. The a la carte restaurant serves Canarian and international cuisine, and is open four evenings a week.

There's a shallower kids' pool, and adults' activities include aerobics classes and darts. There are also tennis courts where you can play a match.

The hotel's colonial-style rooms, with dark wood and tile interiors, each have a minibar, a satellite TV and a balcony or terrace.

Wow. This is a palace! Beach location, excellent food and service.

Dec 2021 | trevorhawes
We'd seen photos, but were not prepared for the WOW factor. It looks like a palace, beautifully decorated, styled. The bedroom we chose was over looking the sea. It was spacious and clean with an optional safe in the room. It's right on the beach with a small sandy area nearby and a short walk along the beach to other hotels. The staff are so nice and pleasant and helpful. The food choices were outstanding with a varied menu each day. We ate far too much! There are lots of facilities onsite. We tried the optional extra spa. The only things we didn't like was a) The outdoor pools were colder than the sea (which was cold enough!) b) The 'spa' didn't have any 'proper' saunas. We were told we needed to wear clothes for the sauna, and we could see the wooden seating in the sauna was damaged by people sitting in wet costumes directly onto the boards. In a sauna, you are meant to sit on a towel and be nude. In the steam room too. There was no where to hang towels before entering the steam room. There were no places to hang towels when using the showers. Communication was not clear how to book/use the spa. c) There was no water in the hotel rooms (as is usual at 4-star). We feel the website/any other pages listing this hotel should make it clear what is/what is not included. It is worth paying for all inclusive as drinks are only included at breakfast, and you must pay additionally for drinks in the evening - and also buy water for the day.

Really the best :-)

I loved, loved, looooved the hotel - it looks like paradise! The pools, the ocean view, the palm trees, the plants and the flowers, the sunshine and beautiful blue sky (most of the time). You really have to try it :-)

Great hotel, poor service

The hotel is older but well maintained and in warm, nice colours. Clean. Decent sized rooms. Choice of (tasteless) food (well, that’s a problem with buffet everywhere though). The location is not great. A rental car is a must. We booked for a week. We did not manage to get a free chair at the pool, bc crazy unmannered tourists got up at 6am (yes, we saw them!) with torches (!!) to find their way to the pool and reserve chairs. So that when you got up at 8 the pool was empty but not one single person !! So you’d end up camping in the grass. And “keep your covid distance” .. like sardines !! Since hotel is far away from a beach, you couldn’t escape. (I find it incredible that hotel management accepts this !) For breakfast you had to wait forever to get served coffee. And once a server brought us a second cup , she got yelled at from her supervisor, how she dared bringing a second !!!!!! Unacceptable. The service staff works like slaves there. And really try their best. But it’s clearly mismanagement. So many things could be changed to make it better, for both. Clients & staff. We decided to leave hotel and go to better place. And it’s the best decision. I’ve travelled a lot, but I’ve never experienced this, never.
