This beachfront hotel has been awarded Spain’s highest award for quality.
This huge hotel is just a stone’s throw from a sandy beach. And it’s also a 10-minute walk to Caleta de Fuste’s pint-sized harbour – there are a handful of bars and restaurants right on the water.
The hotel holds the Q award for quality. Thanks to the outdoor lagoon pools and al fresco grill restaurant, it’s easy to see why. There’s another buffet restaurant, as well as nightly live shows.

We stayed here in July 2014 with friends, a beautiful hotel right on the beach and a central location to all the bars and shops, great food, great staff, very clean and comfortable. Great for children, or friends looking for a great hotel to stay.More

Not for everyone
We stayed at the end of Jan for one week on an AI basis with our 5 month old son. Was an average stay but feel that is doesn't warrant the Thomson premier hotel title. Pros: Family orientated, plenty of entertainment, wide variety of food and drink. Cons: room was not kept at a decent standard, mould on walls, wallpaper falling off, looking generally tired and a bit grubby. Food was warm, entertainment was mimed of an evening (why?!), swimming pools were supposed to be heated but were freezing! We used to sit by the children's pool but it was surrounded by adults. When our baby began to cry cue tutting from numerous people. Why sit at a children's pool then? Babies cry I'm afraid! Obviously the hotel works for people as many people who were there the same time as us we on their 10th+ visit. Personally I don't see the appeal. More

We have visited this hotel a few times and are always satisfied with our stay. The service is excellent, staff friendly and hotel very clean and welcoming. There is a good family atmosphere here and a good mix of all ages. The food is also very good, though the resort of Caleta has a great deal to offer on that front. The entertainment is well above average, with a different act every night from acts brought in to the resident entertainment team productions. There is a great kiddie club for the little ones, an intermediary for the not quite as littles and daily events for all ages, water polo, football, volleyball. They do work hard to keep you entertained! All inclusive drinks are varied, including cocktails. The poolside bar is huge and has an extensive menu of quality food. The hotel has had a refurb over the last couple of years and is much the better for it, with very comfy sun loungers, carefully designed shaded areas and well kept grounds. It is situated right on the beach with easy access to sand and shops. Can't fault it, though as I said, it is more pricey than other options in the area. Also BarcelÃ³ group has now taken over the entire left side of the horseshoe bay, with extensive buildingwork having transformed it into a very relaxing, high class resort (the bar on the end of the pier is gorgeous, with great service and the best views in the resort!)More

Stayed here begining of February, the weather was the only thing that was bad. The hotel is in a fantastic location, food is good quality and the hole hotel is clean and tidy. There is a lot of updating going on and the hot tubs on the ground rooms look fantastic. There is no disruption from the improvements and the staff are all polite and friendly. Make sure to check out pieros bar for a good night out of the hotel.More

Good Value - Not bad at all!
Stopped here for a week of sun and relaxation at the end of January The hotel is large and on arrival I was slightly put off by what felt like masses of people arriving at the same time. However, although the hotel was busy it didn't feel overcrowded during our stay. As we were travelling with a family group I'd emailed the hotel in advance to ask to adjoining rooms with a sea view if possible and that is exactly what we got. Rooms are large, with a good size balcony and reasonably comfortable. However, our rooms were showing signs of wear and tear and although reasonably clean there was peeling wallpaper and behind doors and under the beds were very dusty. The bathroom layout is very odd indeed. A huge area, open to the bedroom, is given to a single bathroom basin and then a tiny closed area given over to a bath with shower over, and a toilet. Very badly designed. This area is also very dark. The shower was OK, although daily cleaning of the bathroom area was a little hit and miss. The rooms here are very noisy. We had noise from early in the morning on the corridor outside the room, room maids shouting to each other, banging cleaning trollies etc, building noise in the afternoon (drilling and banging about 5pm - so bad I rang reception to complain) and late night noise from the bar across the road. It is not a restful experience stopping in this hotel. I ended up buying ear plugs and wearing then when I wanted to sleep. The quality of the food in the buffet restaurant is very good and probably the best european all inclusive I have experienced. Always lots to choose from, always hot and a good selection of meat and fish. However, we did decide to eat out on a couple of evenings just to break the monotony of eating in the same place every night. There is no doubt that the restaurant area feels very 'canteen' like. The forensic style over-bright lighting does not help. It is certainly not an intimate dining experience. Service in the restaurant is, on the whole, pretty good. Some staff could do with more focus on the customer and less on setting tables, but we were generally happy. House wine is very good. The all inclusive 'hot' (I use the term loosely) food offer in the pool bar, however, is terrible. There is far too much food produced at once and then left under hot lamps to go cold. Not once was any food that was meant to be hot barely approaching warm. We complained to the chef about cold chips and she simply topped up the dish with hot ones fresh from the fryer so the cold ones were still underneath! Not great at all. The idea of having somewhere to have a snack etc outside of the main restaurant is excellent and we really enjoyed the outdoor seating area. The service in here is also very good indeed but the hot food really lets it down. The entertainment is poor but I realise, having read other reviews, that my opinion is in the minority here. Watching perfomers miming to excerpts from the Broadway cast recording of Cats and Les Mis is not my idea of fun and at, best felt, somewhat self indulgent. The over-loud daytime activities around the pool were also somewhat annoying. The hotel is well situated with easy walks up the promenade to the marina area and behind the hotel to shops and restaurants. Caleta itself is completely and utterly charmless and felt somewhat downmarket.The usual rag-taggle of bars and tat shops. Certainly not somewhere I'd want to spend any time mooching about. I felt I got excellent value for money at this hotel and I would be tempted to return if the hotel wasn't in Caleta.More
