Princesa playa in Cal n Bosch

We are going to stay here 27-June-2011. We are a family of 4 adults and 2 kids (9 and 13). A few questions. How long does it take to walk into cala n bosch and are there any bars and restaurants around this hotel/apartments. Also what should the weather be like at this time of year. Lastly ,is there plenty in hotel and area to keep kids and grandparents happy eg a market and shops for wandering around?

Was hoping for a few replies first before posting as we having been looking at these apts ourselves.

Weatherwise we always visit mid to late june ,and apart from the odd shower,weather is usually hot and sunny,80-85 degrees average.

Cala'n'Bosch is lovely,but can't give you any info on apts,so check on address below(sorry can't get it as a link ), location of princess is second from right,so looks like it's about 15 min walk to marina.

According to the interactive map on http://www.menorca-minorca.co.uk/bosch.htm the Princess Playa is on the outsirts of the resort rather than in the centre but I am sure that Magicbeer08 ( who used to work in the resort I believe some years ago) will answer this soon and tell you how long it takes to walk into the resort centre and/or the beach. The nearest proper town is Cuitadella really and that is a bus ride away from the resort but the marina area of Cala N'Bosch has lots of bars and restaurants

This area is about 10 min walk at most, to the marina at Cala Bosh.

There is a few bars, shops etc closer to your complex, but the marina area is the best place to be of an evening.

There is 2 beachs in resort, 1 of them is very close by, the other 10 min walk. There is a lot to do for the children in the daytime, but of a night your limited to bars with pool tables etc.

There is some shops in resort, but Ciutedella is only a 20 min bus ride away, for the markets and a lot more shops. Dont forget they close about 130pm till 5pm ish, but the bars etc in the port area remain open.

There is also a park by the bus station in town, where you can get a drink while the children can play.

Hi, my husband and I are also looking to go here in June. I just have one quick question if you dont mind me interupting your post!! I would like to know how close the nearest supermarket is to the hotel and if it is good value. We will be going with an 8 month old, so no question we'll be needing provisions!

There is a small supermarket close by, and a larger one is only 7 min walk.

Price wise all in resort will be about the same, however if doing a big shop, Ciutedella is better. As you go in by car or bus, you will see a small beach, that is the area to get of in on bus. The road to the right you want, and you can see a couple of hypermarkets on the left.

A Taxi back to Cala Bosh will be 15 euro ish.

1 tip is to buy things at the airport after check in and security. This way you do not pay for excess weight etc. You will find a boots or something at more Aiports, and in resort brands known to you might not always be in stock, and if they are, they will be more expensice then local products.

Hi

We have just booked to go to these apartments (self catering) on 1st July for two weeks. Beginning to panic a bit as unable to get much information. Past 6 years we have gone to Portugal , which we love, - but decided to have a change. This year we only have our youngest son with us ( he is 12) and i am just hoping that there is plenty to do for that age ( not interested in kids clubs!)- he has been so used to "hanging" around with his big brothers on holiday. Going to try and buy a book on Menorca this weekend

Be careful when chosing a guide book ( this applies equally to some of the books you can get in your resort) as some are a lot better than others (some have lots of lovely pictures but not much else) and a lot of the books on sale in the UK do not really tell you very much about specific places.

Have a look first at some of the online sites - for example

http://www.menorca-minorca.co.uk/index.htm

http://www.menorcaexplorer.com/en/index.php

Hi, as said some of the guide books leave a bit to be desired

try google for Cala en Bosch guides

http://www.google.co.uk/search?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=&q=cala+en+bosch+menorca+guide&aq=f&oq=

Your Son will find plenty to do in cala en Bosch and given the resort size the chance of meeting a like mind pal is also quite high as most places of interest for children are concentrated around the Marina. There are several play areas for different age groups, from flashing machines that swallow coins, to trampolines, to bucking rodeo bulls.

Ps when Searching you need to use the right/several variations resort name

The correct name I believe, is Cala d'en Bosc ( the Cove of Woods ) but also known as

Cala en Bosch, Cala en Bosc, Cala'n Bosch Cala'n Bosch ... you get the drift :-)

Thanks for all the information. Just hope it is not too "tacky" and British ( hate slot machines!!). Booked Menorca because it appeared to be less commercialised than other parts of Spain- oh well it's booked now so we will just have to make the most of it. At least the weather should be good!!
