4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

La Caleta is situated 8 minutes walk from the beach. In May Tamariu is a sleepy little resort but still has half a dozen decent restaurants (most overlooking the beach) to cater for the small numbers of tourists around. The rooms at La Caleta are fastidiously cleaned and prepared for guests each day. Most rooms have their own outside private area. The guys who run the place always have a smile on their faces and are keen and willing to help. The hotel's construction makes good use of tiling and thus keeps the room nice and cool. Unlike more modern hotels, this building does not absorb too much heat from the sun - earlier this week we stayed in a hotel in Barcelona that needed the air con on all the time for this reason. We didn't need even the fan at La Caleta. Good value for money. Only caveat: could do with a fridge in the room. This hotel deserves to success because of the dedication of the two guys managing it. Good luck !

Room Tip: The end rooms away from reception have larger balcony areas.
