“Could be better if they listened ”

Playa Arenal d'en Castell
Ranked #2 of 16 things to do in Mercadal
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile

Stayed here June/July 2017 with a group of 15 people all family members. The setup of the hotel is quite unusual and there was seats around the pool but alas the towel Wars were a daily occurrence I didn’t get involved in.

The Waterpark was good and food there quick fast food.

The main food was good I will make any meals out of a buffet but some of our group did not and went to the local steak house having got bored of it.

The Entertainment was terrible and the stage which is down a steep auditorium style arena not logistically right for kids. The bar near the Entertainment is quick service but
Plastic cups. Wasn’t impressed with the way it was set out.

The beach is a good 15 minute walk and is quite nice and local shops are good.

Heard some horror stories when we stayed but personally it was a good holiday we have a teenage 16 daughter at the time so totally different than my brother in laws Family who had young kids and a few issues.

Shame it could be a lot better with a proper manager who listens to the people paying his wages.

Arenel d en castell is quite a nice area and the people are great, for eating out there is the Paella restaurant on the beach front along the boardwalk, or there is Bella Napoli, this place is small but the food and prices are absolutely amazing. The beach is nice but sunbed hire is expensive at 8.50 euro each.

We have just returned from marina parc resort and it was great. In day two we found this beach which was only 10 mins walk. We ended up here a few times. Sandy was clean and water was clear, we hired pedlows with a slide- children loved it. Fantastic beach rated top 6 of beaches in spain.

Stayed at Diamond Resort apartments White Sands Beach Club for 1 week. The only down side is, it is a little hilly and many steps to climb. This was our 1st visit to the island of Menorca.
The views are amazing and such a beautiful place. We also walked along the Cami de Cavells to the nearest point which was Son Arua. Beautiful walk and amazing views along the way.
I would highly recommend going to Kane's bar for drinks at Happy Hour 6pm-7pm. Sebastian the barman is a friendly and welcoming man and it was a pleasure meeting him. The bar doesn't get very busy but I would defiently recommend this place to visit. They do food but we didn't eat there.
We visited the Es Mercardal Evening market which was beautiful with many cheese, meats and patisserie stalls. We had a few alcoholics drinks in the bar which was located in the main square which again I would highly recommend. Friendly staff, good wine and affordable prices. Hoping to return to Menorca very soon.

First time in Menorca the area is very clean no dogs dirt, Junkies or beggars giving you grief. No pot holes in the roads or pavements well worth a visit with a good choice of places to eat or drink & the beach is very clean. If you like to go for a walk there are some fantastic places to go & they are well sign posted. We look forward to going back
