caleta
« on: September 17, 2012, 21:00:37 pm »
my wife and i have just returned from caleta after a two week holiday this was our first time in caleta i noted on the forum that there is some concern about all inclusive hotels well from our experience i can understand why people like this we were regularly ripped off in the british bars by the cost of drinks 5euros 50 cents for a pint of local and a coke is far more than we have paid this year and we have been to another canary isle and a resort on majorca talking to other holiday makers i can tell you they also thought it was to expensive plus the whole resort looks a bit run down the main shopping area was kept clean but away from that the place was covered in litter and cigarette ends this resort is a resort on the slide all the time we were there we never saw a street cleaner any where the short street that runs up the side of caleta gardens is prime example recycle bins where the rubbish is piled up the bins and the foot path covered in broken glass and was for the whole of our stay

Hi tt,
Sorry you didn't have a very good experience in Caleta.....
Don't know where you were drinking..???? BUT 5.50 euros for a pint of local and a coke?? No wonder you weren't happy...... :(  that round would have been 3 euros (pint of local always 1.50, to everyone, day and night) in our bar, Legends... ;D
Kez  :-*

There are street cleaners about in Caleta, but they only work Mon-Fri, and I think only mornings. :(

There used to be a lot more, but I think there have been cutbacks.

Could you please send your complaints to the local councillor in charge of tourism, Debbie Edgington - email concejalia@caletadefuste.es

I'm sure she will look into your complaint about cleanliness :D.

I can't imagine what bars are ripping tourists off with the price of drinks :o

I think you should name and shame any bar that charges those prices. We never pay anything like that and the only restauarnt that charged us silly money for drinks had our custom once only, and never again.

I fully agree with what Tubby says about the street between Cal Gdns and El Patio? The road down the back was'nt much better at times. As regards drink prices why dont you locals have a nice wander round sampling the different places and publish a price guide with normal  and happy hour prices i/a.

ps.You dont have to do them all in 1 session :) :)

Whilst we were staying we had 3 different lots of visitors and all said what a lovely place Caleta is .1 couple are revisiting for 2 weeks in Nov,and the others cant wait for next Feb or March to come round again. I've also got friends visiting early Oct who are possibly a bit fussy/choosey and it will be interesting to see what their opinion of the resort will be. Only 16 weeks and I'll be back,bring it on :) :)
