My husband and I spent an absolutely wonderful week at Cala Caterina.
The location was absolutely beautiful. Lush gardens, a large pool and direct access to a secluded beach. It was the most perfect place to relax and unwind.
The food and and choice of drink was superb - everything was incredibly fresh and if there was anything on the menu that we didn't want or like, the staff was more than happy to change it for us.
Yes, at times the service was slow, but the staff was always friendly, courteous and happy to chat.
Many of the guests had children and the staff was always charming and attentive to the little ones needs also.
A absolute perfect holiday - we will be returning!
