Room was clean and ok quality. Food was good but almost the same every day. Buffet plates were greasy which is disturbing. Hotel was extremely noisy with disco from 11 to 2 am and doors slamming (they stick in their frames) at all hours. Swimming pools, ocean and people were great. There is excellent snorkeling and fishing down by the... More

I was in bad need of a relaxing getaway and picked Playa Caleta as my first venture to Cuba. As others have said, you are in a different country with their own unique customs and standards, so I went with an open mind. I found the location and the facilities quite acceptable. The room decor & furnishings reminded me of... More

Booked the Caleta but was directed to Puntarena upon arrival as the Caleta was under renovation. The puntarena ocean view was great as it is right on the beach.The rooms were very clean and beds comfortable although the TV was the old box type we were not there to watch tv.Pool was large and well maintained and lots of loungers...

I’ve been to Cuba many times, but this is a first time when I believe hotel was way overrated. Knowing how bad food is in Cuba and how sad looking the premises itself due to lack of investment I was specifically looking at only 4 star and up, hoping I would have a nice Christmas. Here are the facts we... More

One gal complained that you had to go to the beach to do the watersports.HELLO. She went in July and complained that the resort was empty and that all the drinks were rum based HELLO.If you... More

Stayed here a few years ago and enjoyed my week. The staff was friendly, the resort was clean and the pool and beach were beautiful. The food was a bit bland but still quite good, never went hungry.there was never a wait for drinks or anything else. The double decker bus around town and the catamaran trip were amazing as... More

This is an old review, but I thought it would help anyone looking at Cuba! I stayed at the Playa Caleta resort in December, 2011 for a week all-inclusive at an incredibly good price. I had never been to Cuba before and I was not disappointed! I would consider this a 3 star resort, but with 5 star service. The... More
