Just back from a week at The Celeste ( Jan 17th to 24th ) . We have stayed here before a couple of years ago. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment as our daughter and boyfriend were originally traveling with us, sadly they couldn't make it in the end so we had plenty of room ! The location is very central to everything, bars/shops/restaurants/the beach/bus stops he ''Square'' etc.
The cooking facilities are basic just a 2 ring electric hob, a toaster, kettle, microwave and fridge, with a tiny icebox. Cutlery and pots pans were all a bit of a mismatch but enough for 4 guests. Not sure how one would manage to cook a meal for 4 but we just did a bit of breakfast and ate out all the time, but you can get a cooked English breakfast in most bars for a couple of euros, so you don't really need to bother.
We had a nice balcony but it got little sun from early up to about 1130 and that was literally it
There was a shared pool with sun loungers around but far to cold for me to venture in, a couple of brave kids did take the plunge so not impossible.
The weather wasn't brilliant whilst there, quite windy ( that's usual for here ) but it was extra windy and a lot of grey clouds n the occasional but of a drizzle, but it wasn't particularly cold so better than England I guess.
Our hot water, shower wise was pretty poor, we managed. But if 4 of us had been there we would have defiantly had to report it to see if an improvement could have been made as it was literally a quick in and out so if either of us had long hair there would be no way of getting it washed , conditioned and yourself showered before it turned cold. We just boiled the kettle for pot washing and to have a morning wash and my husband to shave in, it wasn't no great hardship but like I say if there had been 4 of us it wouldn't have been satisfactory. We were in room 103.
We had plenty of towels and the cleaners kept everywhere both inside and out very clean and tidy.
We were left with a complimentary bottle of water and a small bottle of washing up liquid which suppose was a nice touch as on our previous visit this was not the case.
The room had a nice new flat screen TV but just about the only channel watchable was Sky news. But who goes away to watch TV? The Beds weren't the comfiest but I've slept in worse and never failed to get a good nights sleep. For what I think was 210 euros a 2 bedroomed apartment in the location it is a great value. We also booked resort hoppa transport before leaving the UK think it was £6.50 pp for the return journey from the airport to resort and vice versa. It drops off just across the road, 3 minutes from the apartment. If you wanted Wi-Fi it was chargeable in the complex but with so many bars/restaurant's all having it free it was easy to keep in touch with home free of charge through social media sites.
The best 2 places we ate at was an Indian called Fazz's down on the front near the beach near the beach near I think what was the downstairs entrance to The Barceló hotel and La Vaca Loca just down past the square on the main road. ( I have wrote reviews on both have a look).
Oh and if anyone has a 'Pandora' bracelets or likes Pandora jewellery there is a fab shop on the road leading down to the beach called Fund Grube It sells top quality bags. jewellery, swimwear and make up etc. Well they also had a 10% sale on all Pandora items I bought a basic little charm for less than £13 and another more ornate turtle one for £16 which in the UK are £20 and £25 respectively. They are real NOT fake. All the packaging and tags confirm this.
So enjoy the Celeste, its perfect for a cheap base with all basic amenities and would recommend it and stay again.
