“villa violetta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2011

We had a fantastic stay at Villa Violetta. The Villa is in the perfect location with the supermarcat!! just a minute's walk away, Calan Bruc 3 minutes walk this has the most stunning view's not really ideal for small children as it's just a load of platforms that the very brave tend to drive from!! But for older teenagers and the young at heart adults a lovley place to catch a few rays and watch the brave, if you go for a morning or afternoon take some supply's as I don't think there is a shop or bar on that part. Calan Blanes is 10minutes walk past the supermarcat (next to the pirates cove banner!) lovely beach with sand two bars and restuarant very safe for the children good for catching fish. The villa has a lovely feel was very clean we all felt very at home and we for sure will be returning next year. hope you have fun too xx

We travelled as a family of 6 adults and one infant of 22 months.We stayed in the Villa Ampola and found it fulfilled our needs and made for a great holiday. The villa was clean and bright with a lovely pool and large garden in a great location. A negative though, the pots & pans could have been more plentiful considering the villa is marketed as self catering?Otherwise there was enough crockery and cutlery.The other concern was lack of shade on the patio. The patio is not covered and during most of the day is in direct sunlight. There was a large parasol supplied, but one for six people?This could be a concern to families with small children, older people or those who don't want to sit in full sun all day.The local beach is 10 minutes walk away and is sandy and safe for children although there are large rocks on the seabed about 15 yards from the shore which make it very difficult to go into the sea and back out again should you feel like a swim.Be aware that the cost of loungers & parasols on the beach is quite expensive at 17 euros per day for 2 loungers and a parasol. Within a few minutes walk are the bathing platforms in a lovely small cove which are very much worth a visit.A trip to Mahon to visit the market seems to be the thing to do, which we did, however the parking is difficult and very crowded. If you want a trip out go to Cuidadella instead as apart from only being about 15 minutes drive from the villa is a much nicer town with just as good a market and quiter than Mahon. If you don't have a car there are buses that take you there. We went into the resort of Cala n Blanes which has a main strip of bars and restaurants catering very much for British tourists.We would like to take the opportunity to thank Lina the villa manager for her prompt attention and helpfulness when our grandson needed hospital attention and for her caring attitude afterwards.All in all a great family holiday enjoyed by our party in a lovely villa in a great location. Would we recommend the villa to others? Yes is the answer.

We stayed at villa Jasmin with" Holiday villas menorca" and found it quite tired and well used and very unclean.It was so bad we spent a day cleaning the villa.The location was not bad with only a short stroll to a very nice cove.The area in general is a bit "Butlins "style with the exception of the fantastic harbour town of Ciutadella(worth traveling to menorca just for this town).The main problem with the area is that it has lost its Menorcan feel by mass tourism....its also very expensive with a vodka and coke in most bars at 5 euros....yes 5 euros.The food in the area is OK and thats being generous...the best food is to be found in Ciutadella with its traditional cooking...not to be missed but again 100 euros for a decent meal.The cab drivers seem to make their own prices up as the same journey costs differ by up to 5 euros.The best beaches are at San suara which are heaving from 10 in the morning until sunset. In a nut shell....there are better places other than Calan blanes/Forcat which are of better quality and seem to have villas with higher standards.Please note:I had one review on these villas rejected as the content...although 100% genuine with photos to back it.....was not accepted due to Tripadvisers policies...I do understand but its not fair that we cant tell the whole story as others should be warned....we work hard all year roundand save to have a nice holiday and should not have to stay where poor hygene is detected!!!!!If you are hiring a car when visiting Menorca get the final price before you book...we ended up paying 700 euros for one week when the bolt-ons were added...We are off to Corsica and Sardinia next....lets see what that brings !?!?!?

We are frequent visitors to Menorca and have stayed in the Villas a few times , the villas are in an excellent location and have breath taking views. from the time you arrive you feel at home and the management team are on call 24/7, the Villas have everything you need to enjoy a relaxed holiday, the rooms are very clean, the beds are comfortable and if you are a large family there is plenty of room and you do not feel like you are on top of each other,we enjoyed the pool and used the BBQ on a number of occasions. The prices for the villas are very reasonable too.The town with bars and resturants is a pleasent walk away, children are made very welcome everywhere you go and there is quite a lot of choice and the prices are very reasonable. The evening entertainment at the Plaza Domingo a short walk away is brilliant , the Plaza is made up of different themed bars including an American sports bar, a spanish Tapas bar,irish bar and a chill out zone where you can chill with a cocktail or two,there are childrens shows early evening and tribute bands, quizes and Karaoke late into the night. The Plaza offers a variety of food we enjoyed the Tapas followed by cocktails in the Zambeze bar on a few occasions.
Children are catered for and there is even a toy room full of trikes and dolls and prams for the youngsters to play with,the staff are very welcoming, we loved Carlos and the childrens entertainer Chloe was great.
I would recommend the villas to anyone, we would never stay anywhere else now.

Our third time at Villa Jasmine was as good as the first and second time. 10 mins walk from the town centre, 3 mins walk from the fantastic diving platforms and 30 secs walk from the local shop, which stocks everything you need day to day. The villa is in a great location with fantastic views out to sea, light and airy, comfortable rooms with a great patio and pool area, all you need from a villa. The owners, Caroline and Carlos are fantastic and friendly hosts, with nothing too much bother and who also own Plaza Domingo in the resort, which is, bar none, the best bar complex in the resort. Child friendly, you can let them loose and not worry and great food and atmosphere. My next holiday will be at the same villa and I would recommend them to all

Have been to this location three times always taking the same Villa. Cannot rate them too highly, from the personal attention received from the owners down to the location and of course the villas themselves. Beautiful setting with small supermart only two minutes away where you can purchase your everyday needs and many restaurants within 10 minutes offfering good local food at reasonable prices. Then of course there is Plaza Domingo 15 minutes away where you spend an evening taking in experiences from around the world knowing the kids are o.k. in the childrens play area. If you want a truly memorable relaxing experience contact Villas Menorca you will not be disappointed.

Just returned from a weeks stay at these villas. Booked through owners direct and got a good price. The villas are in a residential area but less than a 10 minute walk to Los delphines and less to the sandy beach at cala n blanes. Wasnt mad keen on cala n forcat, bit like Skeggy for my taste but we hired 2 cars between us so went off exploring the rest of this surprisingly green island. The Villa itself is a minute from a rocky headland and is well equipped. Overall it was perfect for our needs, plenty of space considering only a 3 bed and extremely clean and well maintained.
