Travel operator: on the beach
Hotel tip: We have stayed here many times.2 bedroom appartment is fab looking onto the beach..very clean..well stocked appartments..very quiet position..right on the beach.beach bar very reasonable.lots of good eating places many are family run
These apartments are literally a two minute walk onto the beach, and a five minute walk into town. We were in apartment 2, and can honestly say we heard no traffic, or noise from the beach.
The rooms were cleaned four out of the seven days we were there. Our only problem is that we never had the bed linen changed once, which was probably my fault as I always made the bed up every morning, so the cleaners may have thought they were already changed.
I would most certainly go back here, we enjoyed it very much, beautiful Island totally unspoilt.

Hotel tip: Apartments 3 to 8 are very quiet
However be aware we interupted a burgular who climbed onto the balacony at 5.00am trying to gain access to our bedroom! From this night onwards we did not feel safe and would have welcomed a security guard being on site.

The Caleta Playa apartments are within 100 meters of the beach and are kept to a high standard of cleanliness. Renee and her team in Reception and the maid service are both very pleasant helpful and efficient. Peter and Lorraine are also pleasant and very helpful.
Whilst it is acknowledged locally that there is a problem with burglaries and that Caleta Playa have had more than their fare share, ourselves included, it is essential to keep the doors locked fully when you are out (do not leave on safety chain) and all valuables in the safe. Common sense prevails!

We arrived at our apartment early afternoon and initial impressions were good. We immediately dropped our bags and headed for the pool bar to relax and get into holiday mode. We were really disappointed by the welcome we got from the staff, who quite frankly gave the impression that they couldn't be bothered with us. Not quite the start we had expected!!!
The apartments are OK, but basic. They are on a split level, so it like moving into a little house. The apartment was clean, but basic especially in the lounge. The furniture was OK but I wouldn't fancy trying to sleep on the sofa as the padding was not the best.
The bedroom was reasonable and we couldn't fault the beds which were very comfortable. It was great to have two toilets, one upstairs and one downstairs, but we did later discover there were problems with the downstairs toilet.... it didn't work and also with the water supply for the shower as it only operates at full pressure for certain allocated times and the water temperature varies.
The location was good, but without any security and we discovered on our second day that there were very serious problems with regular break-ins occurring. Most of these were through the bathroom window and when people were sleeping.
If anyone is seriously considering staying at these apartments please consider the break-ins and your own safety.
The safety deposit boxes which you are charged for are a waste of time as they are only secured onto the shelf within the wardrobe and the thieves know how to rip them off very easily as they are fixed to chip board. On top of all of this the thieves will also take your clothes and leave you with nothing other than what you are wearing as other guest found out.
We were due to stay for two weeks but left after our third night due to the constant break-ins and concerns for our safety, as was the case with several other holiday makers.
Another point worth mentioning is that throughout the three days we stayed at these apartments we were unable to use the pool as there was loud maintenance works going on around pool bar due to blocked pipes.

Peter and Lynn at the pool bar were very good. Lynn's kareoke was very good but the jury is still out on Peter?
My one big big complaint is the security on the complex. there is none, in the 9 days we were there 12 challets were broken into and money passports and jewellery stolen. At the time we were there several of the men formed a vigilante group and took it in turns to patrol at night so as the women folk could sleep at night with out fear.
but because of this reason threee familys left the site and myself and the wife returned home three four days early. So for this reason I would say give this place a wide berth.

Apartment basic but very clean. Patio door didn't lock but there were bars on the outside. Our first night we got visited twice 2.00am and 6.00am by unwanted guests. Management seemed to think this was very strange,but after talking to other guests it seemed to be the norm.
We rented 3 apartments between us. The stories we were hearing were shocking to say the least, 1 woman with a Morrocan gentlemen stood over her in her bedroom.
A couple of nights into the holiday guests themselves formed a vigalante group including male members of our party, taking watch just so they were sure that their children and wives were safe to sleep.
This was meant to be a holiday it more like a nightmare on elm street. After 4 days we decided to check out. I wouldn`t go back if it was FREE!
All this complex needed was 24 hour reception and security.
