We have just returned from a 10 day holiday at the Cay Beach Villas and we were extremely disappointed because we went AI and we expected that everything to be included,but this was not the case. You had to pay for the TV remote control air conditioning and water unless you only wanted a glass full.
We have been to lots of AI hotels over the years and we have never experienced this before.
To be fair the the alcoholic drinks and soft drinks were fine but most of the meals were poor. Not a lot of variety. There was a fish dish every night which I found mostly to be luke warm and dried up. Some of the meat dishes were a bit better but never very hot. The salad bar was poor mainly consisted of some lettuce tomatoes cucumber onions and beet root with pasta swimming in oil. I have more variety at home when I make a salad and I certainly expect better when Iam away on holiday.
The dining room needed a good clean I accidentally spilled some food on the floor one evening and we sat at the same table the next morning and I noticed the food was still on the floor.
The dining room is no better than a self service cafeteria the tables are set out with a knife and fork plus a serviette no side plates or condiments. In fact there was at least 50 tables and only 4 salt pots and one pepper pot to go round so every time we needed the salt it was like playing a game called "hunt the salt pot"
We didn't take any beach towels so because in the past we have always had them included for a refundable deposit I was hoping this would be the same here and to our surprise it was, but wait for it the catch was they were only changed once in the 10 days we were there. We have never had this ever before we have always been able to change them daily.
The villas are ok but nothing plush if you are self catering they are fine. The beds are rock hard if you don't have a bad back before you go you will when you finish your holiday. The floors are very slippery when wet so be careful after coming out of the shower.
The villa were not cleaned for 2 of the 10 days we were there and sheets and towels only changed once not enough for us.
Having said all that the resort itself was very good. Lots of lovely shops and restaurants which we sampled because the food was so bad. So consequently this holiday turned out to be expensive so be warned.
We met a lot of lovely people who shared our opinions on how poor the AI was. Although we would consider returning to Caletta itself we would not be returning to Cay Beach Villas in a hurry
