We travelled to Jandia with Thomson.... it was the usual cramped flight now with no television or videos to pass the time. One of the four toilets was out of order and either I'm getting bigger or the seat are more cramped then ever! The private taxi transfer we booked with them was well worth the extra and we were...

The Calypso is perhaps one of the best places to stay in the south of Fuerteventura. It is right on the beach, south facing, a short walk from the shops and bars of Morro Jable and within walking distance of the resort of Playa Jandia. Our room, 325, had a wonderful view out to sea and was very quiet. I...

Dear Guest. Thank you very much for your very possitive comments regarding our hotel. It was partly funny to read your comments regarding the view in the Spa. It's not a nudist Spa, of course, but it possible that in certain cabins as saunas, somebody could be naturally naked. I am happy to say that, currently, you could not get...

We had been to this hotel a few years back, it was very good then. We are regular visitors to the resort of Jandia & noted the hotel was being refurbished, we thought we would like to go when completed. We could find no big UK travel agents who dealt with the hotel but found Corona Holidays. They were very...

Having stayed at and thoroughly enjoyed the Riu Palace in Jandia in 2005 we wanted to return there in September 2009, but there were no sea-view rooms available. We read the reviews of the Riu Calypso and even though some of the photos were a bit worrying decided that the beach-side location was worth the risk of the hotel not...

The Riu Calypso seems have some kind of agreement with the German Senior Citizen's Association which our Swiss travel agent neglected to tell us about.
