Stayed here for 7 weeks hotel really run down - broken tiles round the pool, sun beds broken. The food was cold and the head cook very unpleasant the only good side was Tony, the one and only entertainment person did his best. He did everything: bingo and kids disco if you wanted anything else you had to go out drinks if you where all inclinsive you got plastic glasses you was treated like a second class citizen if all inclusive the rooms where clean and you get the odd cockroach but the people are friendly. Stayed 12th Jan 2011 until 2nd March.

Stayed in Caleta Gardens room 133 from 19th - 26th December 2007. On arrival the whole area of Caleta De Fuste was flooded as it had rained heavily. The hotel floor was very wet & slippery & most of the apartments electricity had tripped due to water. Anyway, was allocated room 133, slept 3 if required, everything there for self catering puposes including kettle, toaster, cutlery, plates, microwave, cooker, fridge etc etc....so really good in that sense. Apartments are cleaned 4 times a week, including fresh towels. TV in room showing some english channels but you will be charged to watch it €12 + €5 for deposit for the remote control. Safes are in room, again chargeable per week but bolted down & very secure. Main entrance door to apartment was very secure, no access from outside unless with key but the patio door in this room was very dodgy....if u pushed the fixed frame outwards you were able to slide it open whilst it was supposedly locked, so be very aware of this! Entertainment in the hotel is quite good actually, Tony is brill with the kids but felt as if the hotel couldve done a lot more for adults & xmas rather than play dated music. Hotel does have a happy hour (2for1)from 20:30-21:30 STRICT! pint of local beer €3.40, local spirits €3.40, Blue WKD €3.90, Smirnoff €4.50!...so a bit of advice, got out hotel cross over road & go into "Netto Supermarket", buy 200 "Progress" cigarettes (like Richmond KS) for €5.89...yes €5.89 & buy ur drink in their too.....have a few drinks before attempting the entertainment lol!! Jacuzzi is solar powered/heated?? & bloody freezing despite saying that water temp is between 30-35c on the sign, sauna is broken, POOL IS FREEZING & i aint kidding, it takes a LOT of getting used too! AVOID "IL PATIO RESTAURANT" (out main door of hotel, turn right & next to The Steakhouse which is superb) FOR A MEAL, SERVICE IS A SHAMBLES, FOOD IS TERRIBLE & THEIR "COULDNT CARE LESS" ATTITUDE LEAVES A LOT TO BE DESIRED! Chinese Buffet opposite Caleta Gardens is really nice & €8.80 per person eat all u can, dont eat at "Slowboat II" (out main hotel door n turn left) its rank!!. "Scotch Corner" does a fab breakfast (Sandra ur a star cook by the way) although a little expensive still worth it considering you can get full breakfast for €3.50 down in the shopping complex @ "60's Bar" 2 mins walk from "Scotch Corner". "Flower Of Scotland" bar is a good nite out, late night burger at "Last Chance", down stairs from "Flower Of Scotland" The Dome, Slap & Tickle, Sean o G's, are all no bad nites out but dont expect the clubbing nitelife as it dont happen in Caleta De Fuste. Beautiful man made beach (about 10 mins walk from hotel) but beware coz the folk hiring the sun loungers will try rip u off to tune of €6!!!!...my advice, buy a cheap beach towel n enjoy the sand, water is really nice & clean too. Summing it all up, was a good holiday none the less, but quite limited as to what u can do if u dont have kids, its a kid friendly/family resort. Make sure u hit the Market....haggle for they watches coz they will try €40+ for just one, i got 2 rolex's for €25 :-), dont let them hit u with big price, make ur offer be very firm & walk away if needed (rolex, gucci, rado, bretling, playboy) and handbags i got one for someone for €15 they will try to get €30+ for one if u aint firm in ur offer (prada, gucci, playboy etc)
