JARDIN PLAYA: MENORCA´S LOVELY APARTMENTS
Hello, my last summer holidays where in Menorca.
Menorca is a lovely island, ideal for families and everyone who likes to have quiet holidays.
We stayed in a beautiful apartment few steps from the Arenal d´en Castell beach, "Jardin Playa" you can find them at www.menorcaplus.com
We book the apartment from the owner, everyone were very friendly. Apartment was very clean and it had all we need to make us feel like home.
Shame those apartments don´t have a pool, it would make them PERFECT!
The beach is clean and beautiful as much of the beaches in Menorca.
We had a great time and definetly will be back again.
Just a few steps from the beach!!

Hotel Casa Del lago: Hotel Casa Del lago
Hotel Casas Del Lago (Video),This is just our impression of a two week stay.
The staff and management are very welcoming and friendly,nothing was too much problem and always polite,anything you wanted or wanted to know about the area they were very helpful,including ringing Avis on my behalf to find out where my Hire Car had got to.
The rooms were cleaned regular and towels changed every other day if requested.
The cleaners were very polite always knocking before entering and with limited sign language we got to understand each other, by the way their English is far better than my Spanish so no complaints.
The Moans now (not many): You have to hire the Toaster and Kettle (€36 for two weeks)which I think is a bit much they should invest in some Kettles and Toasters and have them in the room as standard.
Safe is available for hire too ( €40 for two weeks + €10 deposit which is refundable on return of the key)
The favorite moan everywhere,they have a policy not to put towels on loungers to reserve,you guessed it no one takes any notice.Either back up the policy or don't have one.it wasn't a huge problem but inconsiderate to other people.
Tip: You get a plastic card to use for switching on the lights and Air Con which also has the door key on.
The air con is activated by the sensor on the door,so remove the key off the fob and keep it separate,leave the plastic key card in the slot ,when you come back the room with be cool.
Overall: Very Impressed,thanks for making our stay a good one.
The views are most prob the best ones in Cala'Bosc Marina,it has most probably one the biggest pool in the area and is well maintained and cleaned regular.
Outstanding is the the staff who man the reception area: Raphael & Emma always there to help and always polite (Thank you both).
I really could not fault this place at all a few moans yes but still a very pleasant stay.

Valentin Star, Cala N Bosch: Exquisite Hotel
This Hotel's entrance is in a side road but it does tend to dominate Cala N Bosch's Marina. It is a low rise hotel of just two stories which circles a huge pool. The hotel's staff are all friendly, polite and helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean. The bathrooms are spacious and decorated quite superbly. In fact I would say the whole of the hotel's decor is quite superb in my personal opinion.
The food at this hotel caters for everyone and if they don't, let them know and they will try their best to cater for you. My husband is a vegetarian and ate very well.

Los Lentiscos: It's big pool little pool
Los Lentiscos is a huge sprawl of decent-sized apartments in Cala en Forcat. The apartments are centred around two pools; one huge, one small. Never ever in a million years would I want to stay around the larger pool - it's grim grim grim. Tacky entertainment, tacky music and unbearably busy.
We were lucky though. We had a ground-floor apartment right infront of the smaller pool, and very nice it was too. More couples seemed to be based here, away from the raucous families by the larger pool.
Every apartment has a balcony or terrace, a kitchen with a dining and a decent sized bedroom. The complex is very well run, and rooms are maintained to a high standard.
Our smaller pool was right next to our terrace, which was fantastic for a morning swim.

Barcelo Hamilton: What A Bargain!
We got quite a bargain here. We booked the hotel through Travel Republic and got it for just 70 Euro per night on a half board basis (that's for two of us, not each). This was well below the hotel's own quoted price (less than half in fact) and we booked it with the thought that we'd never eat at the hotel, but that at that price we'd not be wasting much. As it turned out we ate at the hotel most nights because the food was marvellous.
Spain is often a pretty poor destination for vegetarians, meat and fish forming part of almost every meal. At this hotel though there were always at least two veggie main courses, sometimes as many as four, and one day that included the most wonderful vegetable Paella. Plus there were enough salads, vegetable accompaniments, deserts and cheeses to fill the most ravenous of eaters.
Oh, and the rooms were decent and the (harbour) view to die for!
Err, the food!
The rooms are comfortable and clean, the view from the sea view rooms is lovely, and the staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. The location is pretty good too, and suited our needs well. If there is one draw back about this hotel it is a drawback that afflicts the whole town of Es Castel: there's no beach. There's not even a beach quite close (one travel brochure we looked in lately said it was 500m to the beach. Err, it's about 10km!).
That didn't bother us, we're not the type to spend all day at the beach, nor round the pool. We like to get out and about and explore, and for that Es Castel was ideal. It's just a half hour walk/5 minute drive from Mahon, the capital; just across the bay from the La Mola fort; close enough to the airport and yet far enough away (15 minutes drive); has the gastronomic & nightlife hub of Callafonts just a 10 minute walk away; is close enough to the main road network to make getting anywhere easy.
I'd stay here again without question (and I just checked, we can get a week for two in early October at 50 euro per night!)

binimar: super fun
we stopped in the Binimar hotel in June 2004.
I had read a few hotel reports on this place and I can say I was not looking forward to going, but when we got there I can't believe I even thought about cancelling this holiday!!
The Binimar is a complex of 2 story apartments, we stayed half board but self catering was also available. Think if i was to go back I would go self catering. The food on offer was nice but not much variety, and by the end of 14 days you were ready for a change. My 3 yr old had no trouble with the food.
There was 2 swimming pools nice and clean, a childrens play area, kids club and eveing entertainment.
On departure, go could leave your suitcase in a special departure are which also included nice showers, toilets, hairdryers.
I would definatley go back here.

Xaloc Playa: Excellent Beach Side Hotel
I stayed here the last week in August, while the hotel and resort seemed busy (by Menorcan standards) you never felt crowded.
The rooms were nothing fancy but had maid service everyday, fresh towels and linen as required or requested. There were also tvs installed last year showing 4 english channels bbc2/3 cnn/skynews), some german channels and spanish if you felt like keeping in touch with the rest of the world.
Next year they plan to install air conditioning which will make summer holidays much more pleasant, then it gets 5 stars.
You can't please everyone. As far as I know they only have half board guests. Breakfast 8-10 and dinner 7-9. For that you get choices of 3 yogurts, 6 cereals, dry fruit, fresh fruit, fruit juices, tea, coffee,cooked meat, cheese, jams, 6 types of bread, eggs, bacon, sausages, beans.
Dinner was just as well provided for, soup, rolls, fresh salad of all sorts, asparagus, musssels, the main courses were a pasta dish, chicken, fish, beef, pork, and about 6 choices for dessert. If you couldn't find something you like there must be something wrong with you!
Yes I know it is not restaurant standard, cook to order but how can you expect it to be? There was always a good choice, it was fresh even if you came in late they were bringing out fresh food.
I stayed for 7 days and had a different show for 5.
There is internet access at the hotel 4Euros an hour.
One afternoon a scuba diving school came to the pool to give people a free sample lesson - scary but fun. Now I can't wait to go back to have a real dive.
Entertainment 5 nights a week.

Casa Alberti: A place to be at ease
We found it by chance, on a last minute internet search... It seemed too good to be true, but is one of the nicest small hotels I've been.
The location is in the centre of Maó, close to the City Hall square. It is definitely not the typical location for a beach and sun holiday, but as we had a rental car, and we were more interested on exploring the island than lying on the sand, it was not a problem .
Do you want to spend a few days in an old mansion from 1740, recently restored and decorated with an exquisite taste and all modern facilities?
You’ll have a nice room with your own bathroom (all refurbished a couple of years ago). If you are a group you can rent “the apartment” on the last floor. The place has a pleasant tearrace/solarium on the top, and a few of common lounges were to relax, parlour gaming, music listening or TV watching.
The breakfasts were fabulous, served in the big table of the kitchen, with views to the patio. All fresh local products: typical Maó cheese, “carn i xua” and “butifarra” (local seasoned sausages), “ensaimadas” (local pastries), coffee or tea, fresh fruits…yummy!
Finally yet importantly, the manager, Dani, and all other member of the staff, so attentive and helpful, all of them will make your stay unforgettable. The place was “friendly-to-any-kind-of-nice-people” (when we were there the other clients were a gay couple and 2 families with kids).

Arepar Appartments/Isla Pariaso Complex: Menorcan Magic - Arsenal De Castell
These two appartment complexs are side by side only separated by an open gate. We stayed at the Arepar which is the furthest appartments on the west of the resort. The views were breathtaking over two wonderful blue coves and the beautiful beach stretching below to the East. The appartments are comfortable and the shower was very powerful. The pool was a good size and always space to swim and plenty of room for the ample sunbeds around the pool. Shade via parasols or in the casual poolside bar. The staff where wonderful - Hola Carol and Michelle at the bar. The views from the air-conditioned resturant are wonderful. The bar is expensive a very small sprite is £1.40! However the biggest plus with staying in these appartments is not only are the prices for the accomodation reasonable but you get complete run of the neighbouring Isla Pariaso Appartments which are far grander. The Buffet there is a must £12 per adult, £4 per child and eat all you can - lots of lovely fruit and veg there which is lacking around the rest of the resort. There are two more pools here and lots and lots of space around the gardens for the superior sunbeds and parasols there. Also we could use the Sa Mirada Complex which was 2mins around the corner but we didn't need to go. Overall this was a lovely relaxing holiday, with lovely views, friendly staff, good entertainment, lovely food and the complexs are clean throughout. Lots of families with small children all seemed very happy. I wouldn't take teenagers as there isn't much for them there and lots of young kids.
The hotel - Club Agua there looks terrible across the bay but is distant enough not to affect us. They seemed to have very little else to do over there. We much more and more relaxing. Can walk around to both sides via the beach very easily.
The entertainment was good. The entertainment reps - Kit n Kat, Chez and Emma - were always on duty whether they were on their day off or not. They always had a smile and the kids really loved them. If you meet Kat in the Isla please call here a pilchard or in her lovely German/Canadian accent a 'slimy fish' - its so funny - honest!. Also a must see are Nicky Elle the fun Yorkshire singer and the incredably energetic and talented Roberts and Ashcroft (JoJo and Vicky I think!). They are well worth a night in the bar. The in Arsenal is brilliant for children - big and spacious. Pure sand and lovely shallow water. It is a quiet resort so dont go expecting loud late nights. Its very cosmopolitan used by Brits, Germans, Italians and lots of Spanish alike - this keeps the standards very high. We paid £950 for 2 adults and 2 children for one week in June. Next door in the Isla you'd pay double for the same thing (oh thier appts are nicer tho!

Hotel Princesa Playa: Our room in Menorca
Our room at the Princesa Playa was a lovely place to come back to in the evenings.
Spacious rooms with a fridge where we could store our cold drinks. Everything was absolutely clean, and the room maids did a splendid job.

Hotel Principesa Playa: The best of it all
We loved the hours we spent by the pool-side, lying in the sun with a cold drink,
listening to the happy, distant voices of playing children. What could possible be better?

Hotel Princesa Playa: A wonderful hotel
Our hotel was the perfect base for our week in Menorca. It was big and spacious with a wonderful pool and outdoor area. Lots of activities for children, tennis and most facilities on site. Great food - we stayed on half board, varied and well-prepared.
