“Fawlty Towers Springs to mind!”
Reviewed March 15, 2006

We booked this holiday on Last Minute in the January. We only wanted a cheap week away which is what we got. We expected the place to be basic, but we didnt expect it to be damp and no cleaners.

When we arrived our names were not on the list for a room, so we had to wait an hour whilst they rang the head office of last minute/med hotels in Tenerife.
We were not the only ones who had to wait, some people had to wait 2 even 3 hours to get their room.

Once we got the room, which was the Monte Castillo side of the complex and at the front near reception, it didnt seem too bad. We even had a new iron and microwave and kettle. All you need really. But as the week went on it got worse.

The bed sheets were only changed once (2 days after arrival), we didnt get clean towels all week. The ones we did have didnt smell to fresh either. The bedroom smelt damp and the pillows and sheets were damp too. There was constant condensation on the windows. The bathroom was clean apart from the ants around the toilet.

There are 3 pools only one of which was in use. The workmen started around 8am every morning on the pool at the rear of our apartment which wasnt too bad but would have been nice without it.

The Staff were mostly on another planet. In fact they didnt seem interested in the place at all.

The Zanzibar Bar was the best part!

In fact we wont be going back to Caleta De Fuste, as we found the town to be run down since 2 years ago and it is far to British, too many Pubs, English Breakfasts and Roast Dinners!!!! Have a word its meant to be Spain, Paella, Sangria and Sun.

In fact if it hadnt been for the fabulous weather it would have been quite a disappointing holiday.

Found the apartments to be ok ( apart from the ants). reception provided us with a spray which got rid of them for a couple of hours but then a new batch arrived. Eventually just learnt to put up with them. Accomodation is basic. 2 out of the 3 pools are ok but the one at the beach club is shabby and run down. Also there is alot of building work going on around the beach club. Staff were friendly but timeshare people can get on your nerves. My advice is get out of your apartment early (before 10am) and you will avoid them. It is meant to be a 3 star resort but I would be reluctant to give it 2. Maid service twice a week but we soon discovered that they just swept everything under the bed. The aircraft noise was awful, especially on the change over days when it started at 7am and through the day till 10/11pm ( no double glazing). We paid £197 each so i suppose you get what you paid for. Feel sorry for the people who do own timeshares there as I would want my money back. Overall the place has gone down hill and has past its point of return. Will not be returning EVER!!!

We stayed in the Club Montecastillo apartments for a week and in that time we never saw a cleaner clean sheets or towels we complained that no cleaner had been and the day they arrived they stole a mobile phone camera and gold bracelet. The staff are very rude and are not interseted in the slightest we paid £160 for 1 week for 3 people do not get caught out with the travel companies even the money we paid was a rip of
