Family of four. Stayed for 11 nights over the Easter break. Have been to Caleta before but always SC with private rentals.
Hotel is only a quick taxi ride from airport. Staff on arrival were efficient and helpful. Hired a superior bungalow in 3000 block, v close to beach, and one of the pools and bars. Gardens v nice. Terrace got sun most of the day.
Standard of bungalow inside was disappointing, and certainly not superior. Bathroom needed updating, worst shower I've ever come across too. Kitchenette area and front room where kids slept was tatty in places. On the positive side, the cleaners came everyday and the beds were extremely comfy.
This was our first time of AI, and the dining experience was not a relaxing one. The staff in the one main restaurant work v hard but the place is chaotic at peak times (And a long walk from some rooms) Yes it was easter but the dining area was packed, we had to wait for a table at both breakfast and in the evening on several occasions. Spoons are also a rarity at Barcelo for some reason! Whilst the food was good, it did get a bit monotonous and we ate out the last few days. Caleta is v cheap and Fado Rock has always been a favourite of ours.
For a 4 star hotel you can still incur lots of additional charges, eg safe (which is key style, not digital) iron, ironing board, gym, wifi. Laundry service is extortionate.
The main pools were still cold at easter but there were plenty of sun beds. The entertainment was ok for the kids, a bit like a multi language version of a Haven show with a bit more enthusiasm. Marina area is v nice, but the theatre bar is the only true AI place for drinks in the evening. It's full of kids too. Not a place for couples.
I'm think we were in the minority though as most families I met were on their 2nd or 3rd visit there. It just wasn't for us.
