We were staying at Villa Caletas from 30th August till 3rd Sept as we attended the wedding in Zephyr Palace.
Villa Caletas is a very beautiful hotel with breathtaking view, but that is all.
We arrived earlier then the check in hours and the receptionist told us to wait till 2pm even our room was ready. I mean it would be such a nice service to get it earlier, as many other hotels do it normally after they have the rooms ready.
We had a beautiful room - Villa Nr. 36 and also 35. They are spacious and have a wonderful view on the ocean and you can enjoy sunset every evening by your own - I also loved the bathroom with the stunning view. I highly recommend to book it as it pays off.
I was surprised that breakfast was not included in the hotel rates, as the previous reviews said it is expensive - 10 USD and up. I do not mind to pay for it extra, but it was disappointing. The quality was average and the portion very small. It is a pity to have a wonderful view during the breakfast with average food.. Even worst is to pay 12 USD for a bottle of water...
We had a dinner outside on the terasse, when our trousers got dirty from their chairs. The hotel cleaned them for free, but the shorts of my boyfriend lost its color. After we complained, hotel manager just said he will give us 30 USD and we should be happy to get at least something!
The bar was closed pretty earlier, so even we had there many friends to join the wedding, we could not enjoy some drinks - so this was a bit pity.
