Just returned today (22nd Sept 2013) after a nice week at the Caleta.
It was our first visit to Gibraltar and we decided to give the Caleta a go.
In general it is a lovely old British influenced hotel, run by very friendly staff.The location is superb in Catalan Bay and we were lucky enough to get a sea view room (the sea is literally straight down from the room balcony).
Unfortunately there were a few minuses.
The prices in the hotel are very high so I would recommend descending the steps down to the bars in the bay where the prices are around half.
Breakfast on the first two mornings were like something out of Fawlty Towers. After being ignored for about 5 minutes, we were shown to a table and none of the staff seemed to know what they were doing. I asked for some milk and the waiter returned with it but had forgotten who ordered it and walked round with the jug held in the air calling, "Who wants milk?"
All this changed on day 3 when Anna took charge and transformed the choas to calm and everything ran like clockwork.
The only other slight criticism is the pool. Whilst the pool area is lovely, the pool is very dark and uninviting, perhaps putting in lighter coloured tiles would help.
All in all though, the Caleta Hotel is a very nice, friendly place and I would not hesitate in returning there.
