“Cheap n Cheerful”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

This place is fine for a cheap holiday with not too many frills. It's only 10 mins from the airport and is situated a good 10-15 minute walk out of the resort centre. The reception area is impressive and once you've checked in the receptionist gives you directions to your apartment which are spread out over a large area with quite a few steps (not much good for old or handicapped people). Our apartment was fairly well equipped with flat screenTV, microwave and a decent shower. It was quite a way from the dining room at the bottom and the bar at the top though, again not a problem for us but could be for the old or infirm. The food was great for what we paid and the staff were friendly and attentive. The all inc wasn't bad for the drinks but the entertainment was the usual parrot show, acrobat, snake show apart from one decent act on the Saturday night. The only real complaints I had were the really uncomfortable sunbeds around the pool and we seemed to have a lot of flies and ants in the apartment at first. All in all good value but don't expect the Ritz!

Room Tip: Best rooms I think are around the smaller, quieter pool.

Good value food ok not amazing but something there to stop you being hungry. We ate out every night anyway. Room lovely no insects. Cleaners cleaned at least 3 times in our week stay. Main pool was busy as the bar was the only one serving drinks so we went to the quiet pool and took our own drinks. Cheap and cheerful 3 star.

Arrived told they have overbooked & we would be moved. When I challenged this was told "Spanish law allows us to do this" I suggested being able to isn't the question why would they do this to customers, to which there was moment of non-plussed blinking then the same statement came out! It's low cost & you can tell.

My boyfriend booked our holiday & chose Club Dorada & to be honest my expectations were low. However, when we arrived, I was so pleasantly surprised. Taxi took 10 mins from the airport & was only €14. Arrived at reception to a gentleman who was extremely helpful & professional. Any issues we had over our 8 day stay, nothing was too much trouble. Our apartment was quaint, clean, tidy, just what we needed. Amazing view too. I had low expectations for the food as we booked all inclusive but considering the hotel was a 3*, the food was great. We were just out of season so only the one restaurant was open but the buffet was great. Breakfast, lunch & dinner; there was so much variety & there was always something that could be made fresh for you. Breakfast; fresh eggs & omelettes! Dinner; always a fresh meat dish served. Everything was replenished frequently. Salad was fresh, clean & tasty. Waiting staff were welcoming, friendly & efficient. We didn't stay every evening for the entertainment but again, something there for everyone. Great for kids! Bird shows, reptiles, dancers; one night a guy brought out a skunk! Did not see that coming! Pool areas well kept, room cleaners every other day, 10 minute walk to main town, shops, bars, pubs. Perfect getaway for couples, families & groups.
Main town had a few bars & pubs but no major clubs; but it depends what yours looking for.
Would definitely recommend & would return here again :)

It probably depends on where your apartment is situated as it's quite a walk to the one bar that serves drinks all day. This was a bit of an issue as it was very hot on some of the days in April and the children could have done with access to drinks around the pool area. (They only served drinks and snacks at the main poolside bar.) Yes there were tiny ants but they were not an issue and yes they were very short staffed which meant waiting a while for drinks but that's probably why we paid such a low price for all inclusive! As everyone says, you get what you pay for. We were more than happy with the food, no funny tummies and you can see them cooking and preparing infront of you! All in all my two primary aged children thought it was fantastic, As we're not big drinkers, the walk for drinks didn't bother us but it would have been nice to see the other poolside bars open, if only for soft drinks and ice creams for the children.

Room Tip: A block had a nice atmosphere around the pool and was close to the restaurant but quite a distance f...

I stayed in the caleta dorada and overall I thought it was quite good. The rooms were dated and there was no air conditioning which was was a problem as it was so hot but the freezing cold pools cooled us down. The food was nice and the staff were really friendly. The apartments were quite far away from the beach however they ran a train that took you there in a couple of minutes
