It was my first time going to Cuba. Our travel agent told us the hotel was good. Can't complain for the price we paid. The pool was not heated and the beach was always empty. The food was ok, but there was a period where no food was available. I believe it was between 3-5pm. But the night life is... More

It was great when I went. The food was amazing. The hotel looked really nice. Loved the lobby oasis. The entertainment was great! Pizza to die for! We went for 2 weeks but i think 10 days would have been just enough. Ping pong table was so much fun. Great walk outside of the hotel. Not far from shopping. I... More

I stayed at this resort in January 2014 with family and friends. I have been to Cuba several times and have stayed at a no frills resort before. This resort is not horrible, I have seen worse motels in Canada than this place. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We had an amazing ocean view from the balcony. There was... More

I just returned from the Puntarena in Varadero. I (was) slated to stay at Playa Caleta however, it is being renovated and would seem to house only a few Cubans at the present time. SO, there is no swim up bar as it is there and is 'unstaffed'... SO, I stayed at the sister resort next door. I WISH to... More

Myself and eight others stayed at the Puntarena, the brother resort to the Playa Caleta. Went down under the impression that you can go back and forth between the two resorts. Which is true you can, but the Playa Caleta is closed due to being condemned and none of the online options for the resort were available. Not even a... More

Because it is not fair say the same opinion for all areas, I just want to specify one by one: -Reception service: Really nice. Professional and people disposal to help you, to provide a nice stay...

This was my 3rd time at Playa Caleta. It has now merged with with the Puntaarena which is the next door resort. Guests can now use amenities at either hotel which I really enjoyed since the scenery doesn't get as stale. I personally thought the buffet and bar at Playa Caleta had better service, was also glad to see that... More
