Almost a year to the day we arrived back at Cala Caterina full of expectation and memories of our previous visit. The hotel is still, unsurprisingly in the same lovely location and the beach is still there!
But something has changed.......the atmosphere. We did not feel somehow as welcome as before. The staff (with the exception of Diego) seemed a bit disinterested, aloof and and somewhat lacking in motivation and finesse. Our classic room was still in need of some modernisation/updating and the food certainly did not meet the standards one would expect from the mandatory half board tariff.
Evening entertainment was below par as where the gratis stuzzichini offered with pre dinner drinks. We also noticed that some 'regular' customers were unhappy with the lack of availability of sunbeds due to non residents using the so called 'private beach'. We were also very surprised to see so many very very young and very loud children, around the pool this year.
The parking situation has not improved and it can still be very difficult to park in the 'public car park' used by hotel guests.
All in all, this was a disappointing stay. We really do hope things will improve as we had such a great experience a year ago.
The diseased cats seem to have 'disappeared' from around the dining tables!
We hope to return one day. More
