Just back from 5 days all inclusive at this hotel, cost £520 for my wife & I,we have had 3 other holidays this year, in 4* hotels,Club Del Sol,Puerto Pollensa,Bahia Primncipe Coarl Playa, Magaluf, and Fanabe Costa, Costa Adeje, and this 3* plus was way down in comparison, the 3* Miami in Es Cana,Ibiza is also much, much better.I only mention these hotels by name as reviewers often say "I've stayed in better" but don't say which.
Nice quiet, large roof terrace, 2 pools & 2 jacuzzis, help yourself to beer, soft drinks, tea & coffee.
Excellent size safe, 2.50 euros per day,
Not so good points!
Room (2020) was basic, beds not up to much, sheets barely big enough to tuck in, so end up in a tangled mess by the time you wake up, no extractor fan in bathroom, bathroom mirror & room windows, inside & out were not clean, pictures on wall had no glass or perspex in them, patio table legs were so rusty it would have collapsed if we'd put anything on it, room was on a corner so had a lousy shaped balcony, TV,old fashioned 14" portable on wall, had to be paid for,2-3 euros per day + 10 euro deposit for remote, we didn't bother as we only tend to put it on while getting ready to go out.
Restaurant appeared to be OK on first couple of visits but we soon learned that things could and should be a lot better.Some food is labelled but not all, veg selection is seperate from main course choice,at other side of room, out of 4 evening meals,fish soup twice and a 'coastal mess' i.e. veg & seafood mix once, salads not inspiring, empty food not always replaced as quick as it should be, lettuce & tomatos empty, had to go ask for more, took the lettuce bowl first and obviously had to chop some more, brought that out and then took the tomato bowl to do the same but we got fed up of waiting so did without, chef doing too many jobs at once,queues built up for food while he was cooking meat, frying chips, baking pizza & carving meat, once carving immediately after using the same knife to cut into some pork kebabs he was grilling to see if they were cooked through, he wasn't over generous with the portions of carved meat he gave you, I felt like Oliver Twist, holding my plate out for more after his first offering, butter was never in the same place twice, could be with the bread, near the toasters, with the deserts or not out at all, as on one occasion, deserts consisted of cake, mousse, jelly, ice cream & melon, same every day, soft drinks, beer, juices,wine on serve yourself basis, but if you weren't in restaurant early you had to make do with plastic cups, not good , particularly for your evening meal, who wants wine or beer in plastic ?. soft drinks were only local cheap brand, no fanta or coke,tablecloths paper, just a knife & fork and a napkin placed on it, so have a starter, go for your main and return to a cleared table, no knife & fork, go get your own. Staff weren't smartly presented, black trousers & polo shirt for all meals.
Hotel had no pleasant, comfy, quiet seating areas, bar area was very bright & sterile looking, again too many plastic cups used there.
Finally, sunbed reserving is rife, you cant beat them , so join them !
We felt this hotel is being run to a very strict budget and is being held back from being much better.
Disappointed also with Costa Caleta as a resort, main beach, man made, is poor, no good for kids sandcastles, shallow & hard to walk on, the sea bed was stony, apart from a small area at the marina end, not child or adult friendly for entering the sea, though beach & sea were better at the Sheraton Hotel end of the beach.There were many closed shops & bars in the resort, extremely quiet especially in evenings, you have to walk up to the main road if you want to catch a bus anywhere, they could easily come down into the resort centre.Corralejo is a much better, lively resort & has access to some wonderful beaches.
Just our opinion. Back to 4*
