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 !?!?!?
