We just got back from Club Montecastillo and totally enjoyed it! We'd read many reviews beforehand and some were worrying to say the least, but we encountered none of the problems others seem to have had and had a great time! The complex was clean and smart, the staff on reception were very helpful and the facilities were better than expected. We didn't expect five-star, especially for the bargain price we got the apartment (only £106 the week) but it was a pleasant surprise to fine the complex and the apartment itself was of a much higher standard than some nearby complexes we'd stayed in previously in Caleta.
The pool was big and clean, the apartment itself was very clean and well-equiped. Maid service good - three times a week. We had none of the problems with ants or cockroaches that some reviews had mentioned - lucky or the norm?? The Malibu bar on-site was fantastic! The owners went out of their way to make everyone feel welcome - with a two hour happy "hour" each evening and a huge FREE paella on the Sunday. They got to know their customers and did all they could to make them happy - especially those with children.
The complex is a short walk from the montecastillo centre with supermarkets and bars, and only a slightly longer walk to the main town centre with a large choice of restaurants and bars - and the beach of course! There is a mini "train" which takes you to the town centre every half hour or so, or the taxis are very cheap for the short journey down the hill - especially welcome coming back up the hill after an evening out!
Overall i'd totally recommend Club Montecastillo to anyone, and we'lll certainly be going back. As I say, it's not five star, but you get excellent value for the price you pay and the friendliness of the staff certaily makes it a good choice all round.
