Guest's review of Caleta de Fuste, Caleta Dorada


“Cheap and cheerful!”

Written on: 28/05/2014

We've just got back from Caleta Dorada and had a really lovely time, but we aren't the kind of people who let the small things bother us.

From the outside the complex looks really nice, I think they must spend most of their money maintaining the outside of the properties, but the inside of our 'bungalow' wasn't so lovely. There were broken lightbulbs in the bathroom, the telephone wasn't working so we couldn't ring reception, the window in my daughters bedroom was broken and our beds were very uncomfy. We also felt that for a 'self-catering' property, facilities were very limited. I think that if we'd gone to reception we could have paid a deposit for a toaster and kettle, but weren't told. All we had was a fridge, two hobs and pots and pans (as well as plates and cutlery.)

None of this really bothered us - We didn't pay much for the holiday, the weather was gorgeous, and we were only 15 minutes walk from the beach.

My daughter loved the pool but could only manage about an hour or so a day before she got too cold. The constant wind can make things cooler, especially when the sun goes behind clouds.
The pools were lovely, and it was nice that there was a small kids one (the main one is pretty deep everywhere.) The area around the pool could get a bit grubby, I felt it should have been cleaned more often during the day. There was a constant small of pee on one side of the childrens pool, which made it difficult to sit there, and because of spilt children's slushy drinks I often found my feet sticking to the floor!

I can't really comment on food as we weren't all inclusive and didn't try the restaurant, but the food at the pool bar was quite basic - hot dogs and sandwiches only. There is however, lots of restaurants nearby.

The mini disco every evening was fab for my daughter, and there seemed to be lots of entertainment, during the day and in the evenings.

Lastly, if you don't like cats, you won't like this property. A lot of strays seem to live in the area as they're looked after by a charity that leaves food out for them nearby. They're harmless, but do like to sleep on the warm patios.

Overall, a good holiday, in a lovely on the outside, OK on the inside property, but I don't think we'll be going back.
