We visited Hotel Sheraton in February 2012. To be honest, the weather was mixed, definitely bring a fleece and jeans, you'll need them when it clouds over and in the evenings.
Hotel Arrival: We were greeted by a professional receptionist who welcomed us to the hotel and got the bellboy to give us a welcome drink of champagne. We really felt we were on holiday. Everything was thoroughly explained to us.
Hotel Room: We were in rooms 442 and 443. Ideally situated 2 floors above reception and not far from the lift. We had a beautiful view of the pool and sea. Make sure you ask for a room on floors 4 or 5. The lower rooms are not afforded such a good view. The rooms are huge. You come into a lobby/hallway with loads of built in wardrobes, drawers, mini fridge. There really is an enormous amount of storage. The bathroom is first to lead off the hallway and consists of 3 rooms. The main wash area with his and hers basins and hairdryer. A large selecton of hotel toiletries are replenised every day. You don't need to bring anything. A second room leads to a bath and separate shower with large rose shower head. The third room is a toilet (with a wall phone - this made us laugh!). Beautifully decorated and of a really high standard. The main room had a massive king size bed and was SO COMFORTABLE - the best bed we have ever had on a holiday. There is a coffee table, TV showing linited channels in English, Sofa, desk and mirrors. You have to pay 3 Euro for tea and coffee. We had been pre warned about this and took our own travel kettle, coffee, bought a carton of milk from the local Spar and kept it in the mini fridge. The balcony was large, had padded wicker chairs, table and footstool. We had beautiful views, however it only caught the morning sun. Once lunchtime came there was no more sun and it was very chilly to sit out. Try asking for a room on the LEFT hand side of the hotel, or one that has sun for most of the day.
Meals: Breakfast, an enormous choice, you would be hard pushed to find a hotel which provides anything better. Cereals, fruit, cheeses, cold meats, fruits, yoghurts, french patisserie, cooked English breakfast items, omelettes made to order by the very professional Sidi. Lunch: The Veranda, the restaurant which is adjacent to the pool is extremely expensive. Soup 8 Euro, Salad 12 Euro, Burger 14 Euro. Go to the rear of the hotel, walk along the beach and along the jetty to the Beach Club. ( 5 minute walk) The most beautiful setting for a restaurant, crashing waves and golden sand. Reasonable food at a reasonable price. Dinner: We were half board so took our evening meal in the main hotel restaurant. Again, a wonderful selection. We all love seafood and were amazed to see lobster and fresh langoustines on display. I can understand some people who said it was repetitive, however there is so much variety, it is up to you to taste something different each night. We were entertained by Antonio who got to know us and really looked after us-as did all the staff. You could get chicken, fish and steak freshly cooked in front of you.
Bar: We spent most evening in the piano lobby bar. William and Maite were just the most brilliant bar tenders. Again, we got to know them over the week and they not only mixed our favourite cocktails but showed off their skills giving us coloured shots and other concoctions. They were absolutely brilliant, professional, friendly but not over the top. The evening entertainmen is low key but still enjoyable. There was a singer on most nights and a pianist. There is a free internet area just off the lobby which kept our teenager boys happy for a while.
Caleta de Fuste: This, I'm afraid, is where I was not happy. I found Caleta to be brash and was very disappointed with the resort. Virtually every bar had a television with sport on, menus tended to be burgers and catered for the ENglish palette. We did eat out twice, once to El Capitain, a delightful tapas bar opposite the Barcello Hotel and another restaurant at the end of the quay which was a traditional Spanish restaurant. They were however hard to find. If you go out of the hotel and turn left, you will find the Atlantico Centre, a small shopping mall with a useful Spa, boutiques, bowling, cinema and a number of bars.
Summing up: A beautiful hotel, you would be hard pushed to find better. The staff are outstanding, the hotel is sparkling clean and I would have no hesitation in recommending it. We really loved it.
Choose a room on floors 4 or 5 to get best views. We had rooms 442 and 443. Try rooms 444 and 445...
