Apartamentos Brisas Playa Park
Reviewed 25 May 2014

This place is also known as "Las Brisas Playa Park Apartments". Reception is open 09.00 to 15.00 seven days a week and as we arrived at lunchtime we had no problems checking in straight away. The receptionist is fluent in English, really friendly and has a great sense of humour. We hired a safety deposit box at a bargain of only €2 a day (plus a €6 Euro key deposit which you get back). The swimming pool is enormous, deep and a clean and the whole grounds are full of palm trees, gardens and flowers. Very pretty for a self catering complex. The blocks are only two stories high so you're either upstairs or down. We chose to go up. The rooms are fully stocked with the usual crockery and there is a TV and microwave. No air conditioning but there is a ceiling fan if you need cooling down. The apartments are nicely furnished, very clean and you get fresh towels, linen and toilet rolls half way through your weeks stay. We had a seperate bedroom, nice bathroom and the kitchenette had fridge, sink and 2 ring cooker (not that we cooked anything LOL). Heading back out, you will find that the street signs direct you the long way round and it seems quite a distance just to get to the marina center or beach. However, please make a note of my shortcut.... Across from the complex is another hotel. If you cut through their pool area opposite the pool bar you will find a small blue sign saying "playa" or beach to us. This hotel has its own access to the beach!!!!! It literally takes 5 minutes to get from our reception to the beach. There is also a wooden walkway that follows the beach all the way around to a little spanish cafe where across the road is a burger king which is situated on the marina. Here is where the life is with all its restaurants, bars and shops. After finding this brilliant short cut we never used the street way again. So please don't forget it people. The beach is really lovely and the turquoise sea, powder white sand make it seem like you're on a tropical island. The marina is even more stunning and there are a huge array of restaurants to choose from. Definately try and eat at "El Pato" restaurant on the marina front. Amazing food and brilliant service plus the food prices were great too. One night we shared 3 starters, had a delicious homemade pizza each, 2 liqueur coffees and 4 glasses of wine. Total was €45.!!!! Bargan!!! Also if you want a great cocktail whilst here on holiday then head to "Don Carlos" bar. Typically Spanish, lovely lay out and only €2 a glass of rioja. His cocktails are the best. We tried a few around the resort and personally his where delicious. And again at €6 was a decent price too. For breakfast you have to go to "Chaplains" bar. Here you can have a "Mega" breakfast for €5. This will definitely set you up for the day!!!! Plus this place will become your regular especially in the evening as they have a quiz every night (starting at 9.30 pm) followed by karaoke. Its the only place that stays open until 3.30 am too, so if you fancy the odd late one like us then you've got somewhere to go. There is also a small square where you can enjoy a glass of wine or beer at Toms bar (free WiFi). Here there is a live band every night playing to all the holiday makers in the bars and restaurants. There a a few shops and supermarkets around here which are reasonably priced if you need gifts or beers for your fridge LOL. If you want to get out and about then you can get the bus into Cuitadella (the islands second largest city) which is only 20 mins away costing €1.95. This is a vibrant town with lots to do, especially in the evening and thankfully buses run hourly back to Cala'n Bosch. One day we even took the bus from Cuitadella to Mahon the islands capital. This only took 50 minutes and cost €5.20. If you don't mind making your own way then you'll save yourself lots of money as excursions from resort cost €15 to €20 per person!!!! Cala'n Bosch seems to be the liveliest of all the resorts up this end of the island but when I say lively please don't be thinking it might be anything like Benidorm or Magaluf as its not!!! Here, walking around you will notice that there are prams everywhere and lots of young toddlers. This is definately a family resort and everything closes up early, even the shops don't open after 9pm!!! So in summary if you're after a quiet relaxing break with a little going on then definately come here. All in all this was a lovely week away in the sun. Great location, great accommodation and chilled vibe to the place. I won't be back here again anytime soon but I did have an enjoyable holiday.

As one of the cheapest options for accommodation in Cala'n Bosch we came with our expectations firmly adjusted to the price we'd paid and on the first impression the apartments and surrounding garden/pool area was basic but beautiful and charming in it's simplicity.

Four "walls" of apartments surround a green area containing the pool, a small play area and trees providing some shade. The complex is perfectly positioned for a short walk to either beaches and the marina with around 20 restaurants and a number of shops.
The supermarket, found on one facet of the apartment buildings had all that we needed and a reasonable rate, which made a nice change from being extorted by stores with a convenient location to holiday apartments.
The staff on reception, maids, attendants in the market and infact all of the people we have met have been wonderfully helpful, welcoming and have always spoken good english.

However, there have been a number of small issues which collectively have taken some of the shine off our stay:

First and foremost was the smell of damp from drawers and cupboards, to the crockery and overwhelmingly in the mattresses. However, this may well have been down to the fact that we arrived on the 10th May, early in the season and could have been the first to stay for a few months.
The overall feel of the apartment, while in keeping with a traditional spanish theme and generally clean, had become a little tired. Door's, locks and shutters seem to have been replaced numerous times meaning they fit badly and have gaping holes from which any wild life can make its way in.
Sold as a self catering apartment, I think it barely makes the grade. the cooking equipment seem random at best, there's a lemon juicer but not a kitchen knife you could use to cut a lemon! lol
Essentially there are a few pots and two hobs. There is a microwave but ours had to be balanced across the sink in order to plug it in. A toaster is available to rent, a bit of a liberty I think for a self catering apartment that doesn't even have a grill.
My wife and I came away with our two year old girl and felt Cala'n Bosch and Brisas were well suited to a young family but the sound insulation throughout the apartment was non existent, meaning every little sound made but the group above us echoed through to our living area and bedrooms.
There was no air-conditioning in our accommodation, only a ceiling fan in the master bedroom but because it was cool it wasn't required. I suspect that even in the hotter parts of the year, because of the way the buildings are constructed and with the trees providing shade, the living areas will remain cool.
The bathroom is hit and miss, the toilet, bidet, basin etc. were all clean and modern but the bath was pretty rough. Rusty in places, it had been painted in some sort of wall paint which had naturally peeled away, so much so that the little one bathed in the kitchen sink! The over bath shower was cold and ridiculously cramped.

Overall Brisas Playa Park can be a base for a great holiday but will fall far short of a luxurious retreat.

If you are looking for a no frills base in a great location this could be it. Two beaches are a short walk away as is the bus that takes you in to Ciutadella which is well worth a visit. The pool is impressive so we were a bit disappointed that it was out of use during our stay however we were given use of a neighbouring pool. The supermarket on site is useful as these are apartments you can cook basic meals - you have two electric hobs to do that and pots and pans. Loved having morning tea on the terrace. To summarise these apartments are a great no frills choice in a peaceful setting.

these apartments are in major need of refurbishment they are very outdated, the apartments boast of a bar and restaurant however upon speaking to the receptionist it actually closed 3 years ago the maintenance is sadly lacking as there was a light out on the stairwell that was reported 2 weeks prior to us getting there and wasn't fixed by the time we left a week later, 2 guys were chopping trees and often left the leaves on the floor all around the pool area pieces of branches were scattered on the floor.... i would also suggest not going out of season as the shops were closing and most of the resuarants in the area were closed also.that said the receptionist was very friendly and it was very quiet, the beaches are 2 mins away and absolutely breathtaking

We stayed here in October 2013 you get what you pay for as the room is basic and could do with a refurb. Great location close to two beaches, shops, bars, restaurants and bus routes. Great pool in the apartments and a on site supermarket. Weather was beautiful so we spent most if the time on the beach. Everything is so cheap we recommend visiting some of the areas outside cala n Bosch like ciutadella and the lighthouse. We come again but maybe stay someone else that had some entertainment. Reception lady was very friendly but only opened from 9 till 3.

You get what you pay for its value for money . Near to the bars the room was clean but could be updated still at £10 a night great value. The weather in late September was great mid20s . Cala,n Bosch is great for a week but not for 2weeks as it's small. The supermarket on site is great for the likes of bread and wine. So all in all if your looking for somewhere cheap and clean near to the beach then this is for you.

Booked a 5 day mid week break and apartment is cheap and cheerful but great location close to bars and beach, the weather for late Octobers in the mid to late 20's and it's a nice place to holiday. We would recommend this area especially for people on low budgets as it is reasonably priced and the area is very clean.
