Esmeralda Maris’ panoramic views make it immediately obvious why people love to come here: Those clear lagoons and golden sands are to die for. The hotel has a relaxed village-style setup, comprising spacious bungalows, complete with kitchenettes and private balconies and dotted around tranquil gardens.
Breakfast and dinner are served buffet-style in the restaurant, offering an array of homemade international and regional dishes. Laze on the sun terrace beside the recently renovated pool, relax in the spa, or take windsurfing, kite surfing or diving classes on Costa Calma beach.
As lovely as Esmeralda Maris is, you’ll want to take some time to explore the whole of this gorgeous island – the second largest in the Canaries and a UNESCO biosphere reserve. Its volcanic landscape and lush nature reserves alone make it worthy of a day trip or two.

How to Get There
Stayed here for one week with our 1 and 5 year old. We booked a junior suite h/b and were not disappointed. Apartment was very spacious and had all we needed as well as being extremely clean. Breakfast and dinner buffet offered a variety of food with the option to select daily dishes cooked to order. Staff were amazing with the kids who were tbh a total pain at eating times, particularly the lady in the shop who was beyond lovely. Amazing beach just down the hill (100 meters). If you want to explore though would definitely recommend a car as we had a couple of days out and car made it much easier. Only negative was the pool, it is on the small side and no shallow area for kids, but other than that would recommend.
We arrived to the hotel 3 hours earlier than the check-in time. The lady at the reception called the cleaning department to prioritize our room, so we could get it within an hour. Till then we got a place to leave our luggages, so we could go to the beach and start our holiday.
Our room had a beautiful see view with a big balcony. Inside we had also more than enough space for the two of us. I was satisfied with the cleanliness of the room and the whole hotel.
Both the breakfast and the dinner are nice and delicious with a wide sortiment of different dishes.
All in all I would recommend this hotel for everyone.
