“Great hotel, recommended to couples & families”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Lovely hotel, we would return if we were coming back to Menorca.

Food;
The buffet had a good selection of food and we even found food for our 7 month old son. Breakfast had cereals, fruit, toast, eggs, bacon, sausages and pastries. Drinks of juice, water, teas, coffee and hot chocolate are included. The lunch buffet is smaller but still includes soup, salad, freshly cooked meat, fish and pasta. Drinks are payable separately. You can swap your evening meal for lunch if you're half board and want to go to a restaurant elsewhere which is what we did a couple of times. The evening buffet is similar to lunch but offers more hot food and desserts. Again all drinks are payable separately.

Hotel;
Lovely hotel, very clean, has wifi (but very poor signal in our room). We borrowed a kettle for a €10 deposit and you can get cups from the bar and coffee, tea and sugar sachets from breakfast. The safe is €2 a day plus a €5 deposit. You get towels for the sun loungers from the lifeguard and he'll swap them everyday (supposed to be 9-10am but he'll change them at other times if you need them). The supermarket on site is ok but it's better to go to the one at the back of the hotel as it's cheaper and has a better selection. The beach is only a couple of minutes walk and there's a coastal walk to the marina. The bus stop is just across the road from the hotel entrance and you can get to Ciutadella for €1.95 an adult, the market is on Fridays and Saturdays although we weren't impressed with the market.

The hotel entertainment seemed good but our 7month old baby went to bed earlier than it started so we just listened from our balcony. The hotel bar is nice to have a drink and the food at the pool bar is reasonable for the price. If you drink at the pool you're better buying cans of beer as it's €3.25 per pint from the pool bar (and you don't get a full pint in the plastic cups).

Overall we had a fantastic holiday and would recommend the hotel to all.

Room Tip: We had room 280 which had a nice view of the pool and the balcony got the sun in the afternoon.

Stayed here at the beginning of the season from 2nd until the 9th May. The rooms had only just been refurbished when we arrived, we even had a wiff of the fresh paint and a guy was just setting up our new tv. In terms of finish the room was faultless. Only one little niggle though, the aircon stopped working and was only blowing warm air. When I reported it to reception I was told that it could only be set for heat or air conditioning which they controlled based on the weather. However as it got hot during our stay (24degrees) it was never turned back to aircon so we were hot sleeping on some nights. The restaurant food was good but does have room for improvement. However don't let these minor points put you off though we would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

On a further note, as a couple in our 40s we did find that a week is just the right amount of time as there are limited things to do. We hired a car for three days and I think we saw all the main sites. Mahon and Cuitadella are worth visiting as well as the fishing village of Fornells with some great cheap sea food restaurants a three course meal was 11 euros.

Without a car your options are limited we were told that if you go by bus to Mahon you have to change at Cuitadella and the bus can get crowded for the hour long journey and Mahon seems to close down at 2 as everywhere closes for the afternoon.

Can recommend the Hotel Princesca Playa wholeheartedly, clean, modern, great food and great staff. I'm a hopeless insomniac and they even changed the mattress on our double bed to try and help me get some rest and gave me endless extra pillows !!!!
lovely buffet meals massive amounts of breakfast and eggs cooked to order + churrros, pancakes and doughnuts !!!!
We felt nothing was too much trouble. Evening entertainment was just getting going as we stayed early in the season, and although our room was near the bar and over the pool the double glazes doors onto the balcony were completely soundproof if you felt you'd heard enough. All in all a great hotel and a great deal.

This was our first visit to this hotel and although we don't normally do hotels it won't be our last. All the rooms and communal corridors were refurbished in the winter of 2013 and everything is sparkling and clean. The rooms are very comfortable with the bonus of a fridge to keep your water cool. Lovely big bathroom with nice fittings. The beds were new and hard for some but not for us depends what you like. We returned yesterday 16th May so therefore we were visiting outside school holidays, there were very few children there and I understand that those that were had the disappointment of no kids club until next week. The pool area is spotless and attractive to the eye with lovely swimming areas and a nice jacuzzi, sunbeds a plenty and a very attentive lifeguard who will offer you a clean pool towel every day. The food was very good something for everyone. The usual show cooking and a strangely for Spain lots of fresh vegetables. The desserts looked very good although I didn't try them.I read a review before I arrived which was very helpful, if you go out of the lower gate behind the apartments and the tennis courts go to the right a few hundred yards and behind the few shops and bars is a beautiful beach. We hired bikes from the hotel, the area is perfect for cycling. All in all a lovely holiday and I feel certain we will re-visit this place.

Had a week half board at this surprisingly good hotel, the rooms are very nice and the massive pool area is great, along with very friendly staff I would definitely recommend this place.
5 mins from a lovely cove and 10 mins from the marina the location is nice and quiet.
Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms get the sun all day

Just came back from a week long stay at this lovely hotel .
The staff were very polite and went out of their way to help with any requests. The hotel bedroom was modern and very nice with a lovely bathroom and comfortable beds and a large balcony. The gardens and pool area are well maintained . The pool is massive with lots of sun beds. Towels are provided for use at the pool / beach so no need to take them on holiday with you. The beach at Son Xoriguer is just a 5 minute stroll away , and the Marina about a 20 minute walk away. There is a bus stop right outside the hotel and there are buses to Ciutadella every 30 mins. You can also hire bikes at the hotel to get you around.
Menorca has some wonderful beaches and we visited a few. Cala en Turqueta was one of our favourites but there is quite a walk to the beach from the car park so might not be ideal for some people.
All in all we had a fantastic holiday and would definitely stay at this hotel again if we were staying in Menorca again .

Stayed here June 2013 with my husband and 1 year old. Lovely clean friendly hotel . Weather was great. Rooms were nice, hotel was lovely, pools were amazing. Choice for everyone. Reserve sun loungers earlyish . Food in the hotel was very nice. Location was brilliant. Beach 5 mins away, marina 10 mins which had lots of nice bars. We rented the family bike which the baby loved sitting in the front! These can be rented in hotel. It was a lovely way to see Minorca.overall would visit again, lovely family holiday, and a lot quieter than Majorca
