I write having spent only one night here this week.
The room we had (5009) was very nice, looked like it had been revamped in a contemporary style with separate rain shower, extremely comfy super king bed, kitchenette & lots of nice lighting & mirrors.
Decent patio area with nice sun beds.
Quite close to the centre of Caleta too.
The negatives- although the decor was quite stylish in the dining room the food wasn't, bland at best, at both dinner & breakfast the food was tasteless & lukewarm.
The pool area wasn't very attractive.
There are far better hotels in the area so give this one a miss!

We stayed for one week in this resort at the beginning of October 2013 and had a fantastic time. The accommodation was clean and spacious and well equipped. The staff were all very friendly and the public facilities well maintained. The highlight of the holiday was without doubt the food, it was well presented, plentiful and with options to suit every need and this resort is rated a four star but deserves a five star for the food alone. We would definitely recommend this resort for anyone wanting a relaxing break in the sun.

A lot of the rooms need improvement, though some of these were being worked on while we were there.. Wich is good, cause next time we might get a better room. .)

Otherwise it is a wonderful place. Perfectly close to the beach.
Also very close to town.
And my personell favorit is, the closeness to the beachwalk, that I used to run on. About three km turn and return. :)

Love the place, and wanna come back. <3

Room Tip: Familys should try to get their rooms on the bottoms floor, of course. I missed it when I booked. W...

Having just returned from Caleta de Fuste and the Barceló Castillo Beach Resort I can confirm the experience was once again superb. Preparation is ongoing for next years holiday at the same accommodation and resort.

We booked all inclusive hotel for my 50th birthday with friends and family. The hotel was in a nice location in its own bay with a beach . The downfall was you had to pay for the sun beds and parasols. We had to pay 25 euros for the week for a safe , but you do get 7 euros back when you return the key.You had to pay for pool towels . We also had to pay for the mini golf it was half price. Usually in a 4 star you get these as a part of the package. We would say that it is a nice 3 star not a 4 star . We all had the same small apartments and we were located near to each other they were clean and nicely decorated.We had a kitchen / dining area/ lounge area and a bedroom which was of an adequate size. They were adequately furnished and equipped even though we did not use the apartment for cooking as our food was provided. The staff were really friendly and helpful at reception and in the restaurant . There were tables of six in the dining room but at breakfast lunch time and evening the restaurant managers and staff always sorted the tables and chairs out so the 10 of us could sit together. The food was nicely presented . It was quite repetitive and we did not have the choice like we have had in other hotels but we always managed to find some thing to eat. There are 5 pools . We chose to go to what is called the quiet pool . We always managed to get 10 sun beds around this pool . The downside was only certain bars were for the all inclusive . The bar by this pool was not . So it was a trek to another pools bar for us to get our all inclusive drinks including soft drinks and ice creams. The pools were really cold they could do with being heated especially the baby pools. The arena where we went for the entertainment was very small and the entertainment was quite poor and the sets on stage was appalling , there was no effort made at all.

We booked a week at this hotel all inclusive through thomas cook, prior to leaving for our holiday we emailed the hotel requesting a room in the 5000 block as these were the newly refurbished rooms.

On arrival we had to pay and extra supplement for the room we had requested but can honestly say it was well worth it as the room was exceptional. We had our own hot tub on a private terrace overlooking the beach which was great to relax in of an evening. We travelled with our 6 month old and the room had everything we needed microwave, kettle etc.

The hotel is going through a bit of a refurbishment phase and it does need it. The pool areas in particular are a bit tired looking and very cold this time of year. We utilised the top pool by the kids club as it seemed the most sheltered from the wind and had a bar/snack area.

As the hotel caters for all board basis it was a bit confusing which bars/ snack areas were included in the all inclusive and which weren't and as the hotel is so large it is a bit of a trek to get to the all inclusive ones.

The one thing that really lets this place down is the food it's just plain awful the buffet resturant served the same food day in day out little variety and the food was always cold. Some of the staff in the resturant could be a little rude if you dare sat in the wrong area!

All in all this place is a 3 star hotel, the location is pretty good close to the resort centre but food really does let it down maybe self catering would have been a better option. Also everything seemed at an additional charge ie safe in room 25 euros for a week, wifi 3 euros a day, towels 10 euros and a charge for clean ones. Would have thought these charges would have been included as part of the all inclusive.

The resort centre is okay aimed at tourists full of English bars showing football etc but lacked anywhere nice for a quite cocktail by the beach.

Have been many times to the barcelo. The staff are always helpful and friendly. The room is comfortable and kept clean to a high standard. Situated in a great location, five minute walk to bars and restaurants. Next to the beach. Quiet and relaxed with good facilities. Constantly being updated and improved. We always go self catering, plenty of restaurants, bars to eat in. Can get food from 9.15am to 2am in the morning.Have eaten in the cafe owned by barcelo and food is always good. Good choice of pools, quiet one if you want it. All pools have snack bars which provide everything you may need. Always feel safe no matter what time of day, have always seen security patrolling areas at night.

Room Tip: The rooms with a balcony upstairs are great if you want privacy and your own sunbathing terrace.
