10/10 Exceptional

Hard to fault!
It's hard to fault The Calile! Rooms were comfortable, clean and soundproof. Blackout blinds were amazing. Not overly luxurious but had all the necessary amenities. Obviously the grounds are gorgeous, and the restaurants onsite are incredible. I'd like to note that Cathryn at the front desk was extremely helpful and was happy to go above and beyond for us. Will definitely return for a long weekend in the future.

2/10 Poor

You pay for a premium stay but it appears the reality is paying for the room itself. Check in staff are unfriendly, make you sign disclaimers for parties and yet their own venue has functions playing music to 10pm below your room. The guest service staff make repeated errors in orders and expect to wait an hour for anything requested.

8/10 Very good

First & final visit
As a venue The Calile is superb. You can’t beat it for location, and the pool is incredible. I could sit by that pool sipping drinks everyday if the week. My primary complaint was the generally rude disposition of the very young staff. I was ready to rebook elsewhere before I’d completed check-in. Every interaction I was made to feel like a complete idiot & that my presence was an inconvenience in their otherwise structured & organised day. For the price I expected a much higher level of customer service.

Really pleased with customer service however the room was dirty with used coffee cups and uncleaned benches. Poolside beds and tables were also very dirty and we were first of the day
