“great location - excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

I stayed there for a week - nice and peaceful. The rooms were well maintained, clean and comfortable. The beds and the pillows good. We payed extra for the sea view and it was worth every penny, great view of the sea and the mountains. We watched the sunset from our balconies and that was beautiful. The food was excellent. The staff vas friendly. I would definitely stay there on my next visit to Tenerife

Room Tip: room with the sea view are quieter and you can watch the amasing sunset from your balconies you pay...

Just returned from a week stay at Jardin Caleta and would highly recommend this hotel.

We arrived early but were given a room to store our luggage until our room was ready. Other reviews have stated the room are dated, but this can be expected from hotels in this price range all over Europe. The rooms were more than adequate, well maintained, clean and comfortable, the beds were about the best I've experienced in a hotel of this standard. We had room 452 on the rear corner, top floor, which had great views of both sea and mountains.

Location is excellent, being a reasonable distance from any major resort but close enough for a pleasant walk to both beautiful beaches and an abundance of restaurants, bars and shops in neighboring resorts. Caleta itself is well worth a wander around its lovely rugged shoreline.

We stayed B&B and the breakfasts were spectacular! I've never seen so much variety and quantity of food on offer for breakfast! We also stayed for the Wednesday evening barbeque buffet, and experienced similar standards in choice and quantity. All food was of excellent quality and value, the barbeque being only 12,90 for all you could eat.

Though we only visited the pool area once during our stay, it was nice and never seemed too busy. Similarly, the hot tub was frequently available and very enjoyable, overlooking the sea and set above the rest of the hotel for a nice feeling of privacy and great view.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. When our booking agent failed to provide us with the hotel booking documents it didn't hold up our check in, and the receptionist even contacted an excursion organiser to sort things when our transport didn't pick us up.

We can't fault this hotel at all, excellent all round. Would definitely book again if we return to Tenerife.

The worst holiday resort hotel I've ever stayed in - very poor - reminded me of a 1950s council run tenement block or Mexican prison. Spent one week in October with my partner and two kids. The room lacked any air conditioning and the temperatures were therefore stifling - I hate to think what it must be like in the Summer. The beds were unsprung and extremely hard and made up with sheets and blankets (rarther than duvets) - the sheets had numerous holes in them. The bathroom towels were definitely the oldest and most worn have ever experienced and the room was only cleaned and made over every other day. The noise reverberating around the courtyard was horrendous right up to 1am in the morning.
On a positive front the rooms were relatively big and the buffet food was OKish and most of the staff seemed friendly.

We stayed here last week and it was great! We had HB, and we loved the food (many to chose). We payed extra 10€ per day for a superior room - see view. We fall asleep every day listening the ocean and waves hitting the beach. We payed extra 25€ for one week of WIFI. La Caleta is very calm part of south Tenerife, little traffic and no annoying people selling electronic devices!! The room was clean, only the windows were a little bit dirty.

Room Tip: Pay extra for superior room, but book it before you come to get better sea view.

Booked a week's B&B. For the price you pay it is a fab place and has a lovely pool area with pool bar along with a large inside bar area with pool tables (if you are into that) and TV screens showing sports events. The inside bar area wasn't used that much.
Breakfast catered for all nationalities but be warned it can take you up to 20 minutes to get a cup of coffee from the coffee machines. They have 3 machines but they work so slowly that you end up queuing for ages.
We paid a bit extra for a seaview room with air con, the room had a large kitchin/lounge area, seperate bedroom and balcony. If you want to use the safe you have to pay 18 euros for this (bit much I think) and you can hire beach towels for 2 euros each, if you want them washed during the week then you pay another 2 euros.
Location is a little bit further out than I would have liked, but still only a 15 minute walk to El Duque beach and we did walk from La Caleta to Playa de las Americas one day which took about 3 hours (with refeshment stops along the way!!). Word of warning, El Duque beach charge 19 euros for 2 beds and umbrella which I thought was a bit steep. There is a black sand beach in front of hotel and we would probably have used this if it had some ammenities, such as beds and refreshments. The harbour (turn right out of the hotel) has some lovely restaurants & we ate at a different one 3 nights but you could eat a different restaurant every night of weeks stay if you wanted to stay local.
Only negatives about the hotel was the shower was extremely slow to drain, which meant we had to ensure we didn't stay in it too long (for fear of overflowing), and the toilet had a problem with refilling with water after flushing. We reported both faults and the toilet was fixed but the shower was a problem all week (probably just bad design). The bed was also the creakiest bed I have ever stayed in and could have done with some oil or replacing totally but was still quite comfortable,

I had a 3 night B&B stay prior to transferring to another hotel where my family were staying, so didn't really use all the facilities! On arrival I paid for an upgrade to a superior room for a sea view and air conditioning as there isn't any in the standard rooms (60euros for the 3 nights) Lovely big apartment all to myself with fab sea view! Went to sleep each night listening to the waves crashing on the beach! La Caleta is lovely and peaceful, just what you need to relax and chill. The hotel was very clean, the reception staff were very helpful, the breakfasts I had were very good as was the one evening meal (which I paid for separately 15 euros with a drink).There is a bus stop directly outside that takes you to all the usual places as previously mentioned, the hotel have the timetable displayed .Alternatively, it is a very pleasant 15 minute walk to Adeje. Supermarket directly next door for all your basic needs etc. Would like to stay here for longer and make the most of what looked like a lovely pool area. Thanks very much.

Room Tip: pay for a superior room with air con and a sea view, well worth it!

I made in choosing this hotel in La Caleta. The accommodation was very spacious especially as I was travelling alone. A separate sitting room and double bedroom with the bathroom between. A well appointed kitchenette and spacious balcony. The interior typically Spanish, perhaps a little dated but more than satisfactory.
The rooms are cleaned virtually every day and the whole aparthotel is likewise kept very clean and tidy.
There is a fairly generous pool area and nice enough pools with plenty of sun loungers. There are also rooftop sunbathing areas.
I was staying B&B and I must say the breakfasts were particularly good and very generous in the choice and amounts available. I had 2 or 3 course breakfasts every morning which would set you up for the whole day.
La Caleta itself is a smallish quiet village with a few good restaurants and a few bad ones (so check out the TA reviews). There is a supermarket attached to the hotel for most needs.
Entertainment was provided every night but orientated to families with young children.
While there most of the guests seemed to be French, German or Dutch, very few English.
There are good transport links to Los Christianos which can be seen from the hotel along the coast. The bus stops are just outside.
If you are looking for a lively, buzzy, boozy holiday with lots of people and shopping then this is probably not the hotel and resort for you. But the more lively areas are just down the coast and readily accessible so you can get the best of both worlds in La Caleta.

Room Tip: I had room 244 overlooking the pool, which I was very pleased with, however I am told and am not sur...
