Just back from 2 weeks self catering at the 2 star Cala Blanca Apartments. The accommodation was basic but very comfortable. My boyfriend and I booked thinking it was just a one bedroom but were suprised to find when we arrived that there were two bedrooms and two bathrooms - not sure if all the apartments are like this, but it would easily have suited four adults. The only thing that let it down was that the pool was rather small, but that doesn't really matter when you are so close to the beach. There also isn't a manned reception as they are self contained flats, therefore you have to call the number on the notice board out front to check in but it was pretty simple. The cooking facilities are pretty basic just a two ring hot plate so take a small kettle if you like a cuppa. The area is very quite although the apartments back onto a couple of bars they tend to close around 12am. Only 50 metres from Cala Blanca beach, which is a small sheltered cove and really safe for children. The beach is beautiful, crystal clear waters surrounded by pine trees. There are around 3 or 4 restaurants within easy reach, each one serving local and international dishes at very reasonable prices and the quality is very good too! The bus stop is just outside the apartments and it costs roughly 1.30 euros to travel the 10 min journey to Ciutadella, which is well worth a visit. The bus drops you off in the main square which is surrounded by plenty of bars and restaurants and only a short walk from the pretty harbour. I would recommend eating in the old town not far from the cathedral. We tried a fixed price menu which was extremely good value 16 euros for 3 courses. We also hired a car for the first week which I would recommend, there is so much to see and do in Menorca, and the roads are very easy to negotiate and very well signposted. We visited the Bronze Age caves in Cala Morell, Mahon, Son Bou where there is 4km long beach, Cala de Santa Galdana and the island's highest point Monte Toro, where you get a fantastic view of just about the whole island.
