La Caleta, Spain
Hotel La Caleta Bay occupies an outstanding position right on the beach in the little town of La Herradura. Newly-built, the hotel has clean, fresh modern style that is sure to appeal.
The hotel's terraces face straight to the beach. These include the lounge, the restaurants and many of the double rooms and junior suites. Guest's need never forget that they are right on the water's edge.
There is a lounge in the same modern style and a choice of no fewer than three restaurants. The guest rooms are elegantly simple and the majority have sea views and a balcony or terrace. Choose from the compact double rooms, family rooms for four adults, or the large junior suites with their own comfortable sitting areas and terraces.
La Herradura is a small resort town wrapping itself round a bay of crystal-clear water on the Spanish Costa Tropical. Less well-known than the Costa del Sol, it brings all the benefits of beaches, nature and climate, without the crowds.
