“Apt. Nr. 6 at El Caleton - perfect location right on the beach”
Reviewed March 3, 2011

Our family had an absolute fantastic holiday in Apt. Nr. 6 at El Caleton - the best apartment in El Cotillo! It really is a most wonderfull location and we think the nicest one at El Caleton, only a few steps from the gold sands of the beach and with a view to the sea even from the terrace. Perfect for our kids and for us to see some sunshine before the Winter time. We cannot wait to go back. You can book the apartment with David or Ann at -- who are really helpfull and friendly.

For a total relaxation and fantastic beach this is the perfect location we travelled with two children of 6 and 12 and they had a fantastic time in the sun and loved the beach, there are several nice restaurants in the area some of which you can walk to but I would recommend you hire a car and get out and about. We will def be going back... Thank you Linda for a fab apartment.... You can email Linda to book this apartment on -- very helpful lady and great rates xx

We have stayed at El Caleton most years (sometimes twice a year) for about 10 years. What a perfect escape, set immediately on a private beach in fantastic surroundings. As soon as we leave - we re-book!
The walk to the village is just enough to help the food down eaten in the great eateries - La Vaca Azul (Blue Cow) and La Rustica (owned and operated by the hardest working couple on the island - I sometimes want to help wash up).

On the down-side, it did rain for almost half an hour on one occasion in the last 10 years but then we do choose winter for our holidays.

We have stayed here half a dozen times and enjoyed every single one. The apartments are basic, spacious and clean and have all you need to enjoy a holiday.

There is a great choice of restaurants in the local village, but the best is just at the end of the road a 5 minute walk called Azzurro,fantastic Steak to the best Paella i have tasted.

Walk out of the gates of the apartments and you are directly on the beach, sometimes you are the only people on the beach "fantastic".
The beach is great for Kite flying so don't forget to pack one of them.
If you enjoy a bit of fishing pack a telescopic rod or buy one locally, catch some shrimps in the rock pools with a net and sit on the rocks its like shelling peas my children love to join in.
If you want a holiday where you can let your children investigate the sea and shores without fear then this is the holiday for you.
Book now before everyone hears about it.
You can book direct with a lady called Linda who owns two apartments her email is

Loved the location - right by a beach, the charming garden with its feral occupants, the cleanliness and good organisation of owners, and the owners themselves. Most suitable for those who like a little peace and quiet away from the hustle & bustle of the local fishing village.

Stayed in number 8 first floor apartment balcony over looking sea view, We could not believe that tranquil idyllic places like this exists, with a beautiful lagoon, which makes it safe bathing for families. The apartment was in excellent condition, well equipped, very clean, and had facilities with a personnel touch, DVD player flat screen TV and a iPod’s and I phone Sony music player with charger, which we didn't expect, Local Restaurants were great and we never thought that such a small village could offer so many quality restaurants, with Fish being freshly available daily by local fisherman the Restaurants in the old harbour and new with spectacular views of sunset. We will be back as El Caleton was one of our best holidays. Sarah J

Well yet another review of El Caleton ! This time a different apartment. This one is also on the ground floor giving access to a lovely patio area and the gardens. The cats that frequent the area (fed and looked after by The Twinkle Trust) never enter the apartments and sit on the outer edges of the patios and/or french doors. They are all lovely well tendered well behaved cats which do not interfere with you unless you encourage them. Feed them at their feeding station and there will be no complaints.
The apartment is a two bedroomed apartment with twin and a double. All facilities are present and all cooking requirments were present. The owners have also decorated the walls with some excellent paintings done by Eric on canvas and one large one on the actual wall itself in the lounge area.
The accommodation is now nearly all run by Maryand Alan and it is all to their credit. There has been a new coat of paint and everthing is all very clean , tidy and well presented. We love the place and met the owners of No.1 this time. We have returned today from the holiday there and have booked today to go back in September.... It must be good hey....... If we won a bit of cash we would buy one of the apartments at the drop of a hat.
Do not be put off by the Electric being produced by a generator if anything it adds to the experience .
