Just back after spending two weeks at Los Lentiscos in a one bedroom, poolside apartment (number 41). As previous reviewers have already mentioned, the Lentiscos is ideally situated within the resort and is basic accommodation. We also knew other families who had been there several times previously so we didn't think twice about booking for this year.
Our first impressions confirmed that the hotel could do with freshing up as there was an "old caravan" smell about the apartment, but that was not a big deal. However, when we returned to the apartment after our first evening out, we were welcomed by four cockroaches, the biggest of which must have been almost three inches long. We reported this to reception and the maintenance man was duly sent to deal with the bugs. However, we encountered the same issue almost every night and were told by other guests that we were just unlucky as they had no such problem. Eventually, after a further complaint to reception, the bathroom (where the majority of the beasts were found) was sprayed which seemed to do the trick. There was also a rat in the pool during our first week which was caught by hotel staff and summarily executed in full view of everybody. Not ideal.
It's a shame as the sleepless nights worrying about the 'roaches spoiled what was an otherwise relaxing holiday.
With regards to the other facilities at the hotel, the gym/jacuzzi/steamroom are in need of a makeover and the evening entertainment on offer was sparse, but in fairness, the hotel was quiet for the first week of our stay.
The resort itself was pretty much the same as last year, although a lot of the restaurants now have staff outside trying to usher customers in, which is a bit of a pain at times. The prices seem to have stayed the same as last year but the exchange rate meant that our cash didn't go as far. As for recommendations, Frankies is great for food and entertainment (thanks especially to Diego and Jade), The Forum serves lovely food (excellent service) and Rodamon was surprisingly cheap for the food on offer.
Don't think that we could return to Los Lentiscos after this experience but we shall definitely come back to this part of the beautiful island of Menorca.
