Our room was pleasant but lacking in electrical outlets to charge all our...

I travel a lot -- and don't say this lightly: Villa Caletas is one of the best hotels I have ever been to. The location is absolutely gorgeous, the rooms outstanding, the service top notch -- and the food is a gourmet's delight. The only negatives are that the (wonderful) food is very expensive and the hotel is located far...
