Rated 5 out of 5 by Philip55 A very relaxing, upscale experience
If you like resort-style hotels but don't like crowds of people, cramped rooms, hectic eating facilities and too many goings-on this is the one for you!
This is a very spacious property with a very open feel about it throughout. All the rooms are spacious and so are all the public areas and facilties. And that is the most important feature of the hotel which makes it stand out.
The highlight is the main pool area with surrounding sundecks and gardens - simply wonderful. No shortage of good quality sunbeds here and you can have plenty of personal space as, unlike many similar hotels, the beds aren't lined up in rows right close to each other. They have recently begun supplying mattresses for the sunbeds - a fantastic addition which increases their level of comfort even more.
The hotel staff are very professional, polite and attentive without being at all intrusive, which is what I like.
The location of the hotel is also very good - in a newly developed area of the coastline far away from the more lively areas of Playa des Las Americas and Los Cristianos. 15 minutes walk away is the quaint fishing village of La Caleta where there are some traditional restaurants. Walk the other way along the Promenade and you can reach the end of Los Cristianos in about 1.5 hours (3 hours roundtrip) - that enables you to see the "other side" of Tenerife and is a perfect activity if you get a cloudy day!
I have only have two criticisms of this hotel. First is the cost of the buffet dinner in the evening (36 Euros per head without drinks) which pretty much forces you to go out as there is wide choice of much cheaper within easy walking distance. Second is not having free Internet throughout the hotel - you can't enjoy your daily internet routine on your handheld devices in your room or around the pool unless you pay for it, which is a great shame in my view; you are forced to go up into the special free internet area called The Link, which is a lot of effort if you only need to send a quick E Mail to Aunty Flo back home! Hopefully both these issues can be addressed by the hotel very soon.
Travel Tip : If you are quite an independent traveller there is a regular local bus service near the hotel which takes you to the Costa Adeje Bus Station from where you can get local buses to a long list of places, including direct to the South and North Airports. It costs 1.45 Euros to the Bus Station and 3.55 Euros from there to the South Airport. There is a Café at the Bus Station where you can buy a "BONO CARD" for 15 Euros which automatically gets you around 30% off all bus fares compared with paying each time with Cash ! Again, the buses are a good option if you get a cloudy day.
Mind you, the level of upscale space and comfort provided by this hotel is so impressive that unless there are clouds you won't want to leave it !
Rated 5 out of 5 by nick101 Lovely hotel and staff
Just spent a lovely week in the Sheraton la Caleta October really is the ideal month to go weatherwise. The hotel is beautiful, staff freindly and helpful, the food (we sampled all resturants) and facilities are very good. My compliments to the manager and staff of this 5* paridise. Note its also in a wonderful/safe up market resort area that has been developed over the last 10 years. If you want more exicitement Playa Las Americas is only 1.45 Euros for a single from the nearby bus stop or 16 Euro in a taxi. Enjoy we did!
Rated 5 out of 5 by CJinUK Superb Hotel Experience
This is an absolutely great hotel to stay in. The place is spotless the breakfast buffet is fantastic and the staff are great. The poolside areas are very well kept and there is an ample supply of towels and sun loungers. As an SPG platinum member I was given a large suite which was almost an apartment in it's own right, Everything about our week away at this hotel was faultless and the manager and his staff deserve all the praise coming their way. The pictures on the net do not do this hotel justice, it is very much better in real life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LBM0411 I canot fault this hotel
This is by far my new favourite Starwood property. The staff are professional and courteous, the facilities and location superb and the buffet breakfast delicious! We were upgraded to a Premium Terrace view with a huge terrace with sunbeds and a panoramic view of the ocean, which is worth paying a premium for even if you are not lucky enough to get an upgrade. There are some lovely restaurants in Caleta, which is a 15 minute walk and some good bars along the coast in the other direction towards Los Christianos, also within easy walking distance. This is our fourth time at this hotel within the last two years and I fully expect to be back for a long weekend again before the year is out.

Just returned from a week's holiday in this lovely hotel.
The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The food was of a very good standard with a good variety available in the evening buffet.
We had free wifi in our room.
Would highly recommend this hotel.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Phil123 Overall a good resort hotel
Stayed at the Sheraton Adeje for 7 nights over Easter and in all it is a good resort hotel. Good restaurants, easy distance from airport, plenty of loungers around the 2 pools and the Club Lounge facilities are excellent. Would definitely return for another visit.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tigermanJohn Super Hotel - lovely location
Chose Sheraton at La Caleta as looking for sunshine and quality break-Sheraton did the business! Excellent hotel first class staff comfortable room - met all requirements. My only observation would be that my wife and I did not wish to have a fixed price three course meal every night and so would have been good to have had the option of a lighter meal at a lesser price as an option such as that provded at the Italian pool restaurant - unfortunately this closed at 5.30 p.m. Appreciate that of course the hotel caters for high level of business clients with requirements that differ from those of us choosing the hotel for a holiday!! However fully recommend - an excellent quality hotel.
