“Fantastic Staff lovely holiday”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Lovely place to stay if you are wanting a relaxing holiday, the resort is very small and quiet. The hotel is spotlessly clean throughout and all the staff work really hard they are a credit to the hotel. We had a ground floor room in a nice position for the pool and bar, the rooms were a little dated and the bed extremely hard although we slept OK. Air con is in place but was not up and running whilst we were there. Plenty of hot water and nice bathroom even though the shower curtain stuck to you. For the little niggles the atmosphere of the hotel and staff more than made up for this and we would stay here again. I would say I am a bit of a fussy eater, but the food here was very good always hot and replenished not a massive choice but always but more than enough to choose from. The prices at the hotel are very good. 3.80 euro for carafe of wine, 3.00 large beer, about 4 euro for a generous measure of brandy, gin etc. Snacks are very reasonable hot and plentiful. The pool was nice and warm with plenty of sunbeds also a small children's pool. The sandy beach is just opposite the hotel they have sunbeds and brollys 15 euro for 2. I wouldn't come to this resort with older children or teenagers I don't think there would be enough to do, but if you want a nice chilled out holiday come here.

Room Tip: Pool view ground floor

Have just returned from a fabulous relaxing break at this superb hotel. The staff in particular made this a wonderful break, nothing was to much trouble for them, and they all worked so hard as a team. The food was excellent, with plenty of choice for breakfast and dinner. Beautiful sandy beach across the road, and very good weather. I would imagine the bedrooms would become very hot in the height of the season, because there was no air conditioning, but fans could be hired from reception. Would we return? Most definately yes.

What a great place to stay, if you want a quiet and relaxing break. On arrival we were given a very warm welcome, our room (huge) was ready, it was spotlessly clean - a theme that continued throughout the 10 days of our stay. All the staff, cleaners, waiters, bar and reception were very polite and friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. We are not a couple who normally return because there are too many other places to visit, however the Xaloc Player is a place I would look forward to staying at a second time.

Room Tip: Rooms 801 upwards a very large and airy.

We have just spent a week at this hotel - the first time but hopefully not the last. The hotel was scrupulously clean and all the staff, without exception, were friendly and helpful. We had requested a high, quiet room and were given just that. The food was excellent with several choices of main course each evening including a fish dish. Breakfast was also good with plenty of choice. The snack bar served excellent food at very reasonable prices. Alcohol was also very reasonably priced - half a carafe of wine for 3.80 euros! The hotel is just across the road from the lovely sandy beach which is manned by lifeguards and therefore safe for children. Punta Prima itself is a lovely, very small resort with a few restaurants (all good and reasonably priced - El Faro was our favourite) and two supermarkets. If you want a quiet, relaxing holiday, Punta Prima is the place and Xaloc Playa is the hotel.

Room Tip: if you want quiet, request a high room away from the main building.

Just got back from our third visit to this hotel.It's a great hotel in a good position to the beach.The hotel is very clean & our room was cleaned thoroughly every day.The food was good & always hot.Our room was on the ground floor & opened out onto the pool area.The snacks at lunchtime were huge & very good prices.The staff were all very friendly & nothing was too much trouble.
This is a quiet hotel & and it was great not being pestered by entertainment staff during the day to join in some game or other.The three evenings of entertainment were good
Punta prima is a small quiet resort with a lovely beach.We will definitely go again.

Room Tip: rooms 01-12 are on the ground floor overlooking the pool

We arrived at the hotel xaloc playa on the friday morning from stansted, our room was not quite ready so we were told to see feran for coffee and pastries which was welcome having been up all night. Our room was on ground floor overlooking the pool, very nice and quiet if a little small but then again you only need it to sleep in, the staff in this hotel are excellent and everything is cleaned on a daily basis, the pool is very warm and there are plenty of sunbeds, unfortunatly it seems some people cant read as it clearly states "no reserving of sunbeds" but from about 0630hrs onwards out come the towels i found this quite amusing if not a little childish! The food is very good and there is always something for everybody, i figured out that each night you could have a choice of around 10 different meals, be warned though, people start queueing before the doors open & some of our european counterparts seem to find it acceptable to push and shove to get what they want first. ( you know which country i mean) The beach is just across the road and its lovely as is the crystal clear sea, but again it gets very busy ehere again you may encounter much rudeness from the same europeans that like to push in at mealtimes, there are 7 restaurants in the small town of which the best is can santi, all in all a great place and if we the sort of travellers that return to the same place then i would not hesitate, by the way bring a travel kettle and european plug adaptor and your hiliday will be complete, hope you find this helpfull.

Very nice Hotel, close to the beach in this quiet Menorcan Resort. Rooms were spacious if a little basic, kept very clean and we had a garden aspect and close to the main facilities. The staff were very helpful, particularly the waiters and bar staff. The food was adequate if a bit repetitive and we would have preferred a better quality of main course , but I suppose you get what you pay for. The beach was clean and very safe for small children. quite a walk out to get any depth to swim properly..
Only real down side was that the bed was hard and had little give in it.

A quiet resort so if you want rest and relaxation then this is the place to be.
