Staff were not helpful or friendly except asking my husband if he wanted cigars or something else to smoke. Kids club was...

The grounds and beach are beautiful BUT our big complaint was the food. It was absolutely disgusting. This was our 8th time in Cuba and have never come across such filth in the buffet. The dishes had a greasy film on them like the entire batch had been washed in the same water without soap. The food looked and tasted...

My opinion stays the same about these hotels, they are a great deal and very welcoming. Pool bar was still closed in September, and they AC and water was shut...

Spent a week here in September and had a wonderful relaxing week. Hot sun, no rain, warm ocean, warmer pool, white sand and amazing resort staff. Very kid friemdly. Lots to do with excursions and an easy walk into town. Rooms are clean and food is good. A great place to stay. We are definitely going back.

I booked this trip for myself & two sons (10 & 17) on the cheap, so I had low expectations going in. The room & bathroom were old & dirty & musty. It rained (for a short time) everyday that we were there. Our balcony door didn't open & didn't shut all the way so our floor was always wet....

I have stayed at Playa Caleta twice, once with a girlfriend and the 2nd time with my husband. We like Playa Caleta for its location (beginning of town) and it is still very close to the downtown area and other resorts. Both times I had ocean view rooms and each time the view was gorgeous. The grounds and the rooms...
