Seth Playa Azul - Cala n Porter

Has anyone been to this hotel recently and would you recommend it. I have read the reviews on Trip Advisor but there are none for this year yet so just wondering if its still okay.

We like the beach, somewhere to walk to and of course decent food and was thinking of doing the all inclusive at this hotel.

Any comments would be appreciated!

Hello, we re a young couple from Liverpool and have just returned from a week all inclusive from the Seth Playa Hotel and where VERY impressed with almost everything.

The food was clean hot and always yummy, my bf is quite a fussy eater and was enjoying the fish most days. the service was of a 4 or 5 star quality and the drinks where nice but not the best.

The area was gorgeous, small clean and safe. quite a few nice looking restaurants and bars but all were empty when we were there which made me sad lol.

I would definately return to this hotel as it was the best holiday ever :) And if you do go....make sure you go on the day trip with Raphael, he is brilliant.

hope this helps. Lisa & Lee x

Welcome to the forum Lisa -Sounds like we have another convert to the island.

The reason that you found everywhere so empty was that the tourist season only started a few weeks ago and everything on the island takes a while to perk up. Early May is always quiet, but come July it will be quite a lot busier

Out of interest, what was dissapointing for you about the All Incl option drinks - the selection available or the quality?

Thanks for your report Lisa, glad you enjoyed the area.

First half of May is generally very quiet in ALL menorcan resorts particularly as Easter was late in 2011 and most of the trade starts late May/early June

The hotel was indeed refurbed last year, I haven´t stayed there but was taken on a tour by the hotels young and enthusiastic manager. The hotel is classed as a 3* if I am not mistaken. Rooms were clean, pool area was nice, although would have benefitted from more sun loungers IMO. The food was good and drinks were included with lunch and dinner, but I would always go with HB as there are quite a few "good eats" in CP, which you would miss out on if you went AI.

CP beach is a lovely spot, calm waters and very clean. Don´t forget to visit the Caves nightclub open as a bar during the day (cova dén xoroi), sunset is beautiful from the dance floor!

Hope this helps,

In my own opinion I think there should be a cocktail menu with lots of choice.....when I was there, there was only two choices. there was the option to make other drinks but they were not on the menu. But this is only my personal opinion. I would definatley return tho in spite of this as we had a wonderful time and were treated fantastically.

P.s we miss the receptionist Rosa :) she is brilliant x
