This part of Menorca is simply stunning, we have just returned from an all inclusive stay at the Adela Playa Apartments, a family of four with (10yr & 18yr old)and as we had not been to Menorca before and this was going to be a last holiday before my 18yr old would be doing his own thing in Ibiza! next year, we thought it would be a good thing to push the boat out and go all inclusive. The apartments are in a beautiful location close the beaches, apartments were YES basic but did what we wanted it to do, hot water was plentiful and beds comfortable, there was a constant supply of clean towels pretty much on a daily basis, pools were great and everywhere was very clean. As we had looked at reviews from other's with a few negative remarks, we were a little apprehensive at first, but we are so glad we did, peoples expectations vary greatly! but this area of Menorca is quiet so if you are looking for a lively setting then this will not be for you.
As mentioned by other reviews, English families are very few and far between, which was lovely, I didn't want to sit and listen to English arguing about who was getting the next round of drinks in, the entertainment is centred around the Italian traveller but still played English music around poolside on occasions. The town of Fornells just a few miles out is a must to visit with lovely harbour and cafe's to enjoy the mandatory jug of Sangria and buses run every 1/2hr or so form the resort. The food at the resort! well, we cannot fault it, we enjoyed all the meals that we ate and food was of plenty, as we did not use it all the time we found being all inclusive a bit restricting with the set meal times, we did eat out. Staff are very friendly and helpful too. The Joker bar next to the apartments served good food and prices were not too expensive. We will hire a car next time as this is a must if you want to see more of the island, buses are frequent but can be expensive in my opinion, it cost us E18.20 to got to Ciutadella for four one way E36.40 return! car hire per day is not much more. We intend to return to this beautiful island very soon and to this resort (maybe look at the Carema Villas on the hillside) as we want to see more of what Menorca has to offer, this Island is unspoilt and retains it's Spanish identity with very friendly people and stunning countryside.
Can't wait o go back..
