Our family stayed in this Aparthotel Complex between 8th-22nd July this year. This was our first 'abroad' holiday. The complex is built into the side of a rock so as a result there are lots of steps everywhere -which is fine if you have no mobility problems. The apartment was very clean but basic, and my eldest son had to sleep on the day bed in the lounge as there was not enough room in the bedrooms to accommodate all 7 of us. The beds were rock hard and as a result I had to lift the cushion mattress off the other day bed and take it up to my room each night just to be able to sleep. Cleaning staff came in very day to freshen up bathrooms and bedrooms -that could not be faulted in any way. However the facilities provided to cook for a family of seven 'self-catering' were not adequate. A three ring stove top, no kettle, microwave, no oven and no work surface to speak of didn't make the job easy. As our children are between 11-17 years old, we were hoping for some activities in the area to avail of -there were none! There is a lovely gazebo on the coast side of the complex which provided a lovely space to sit and read at night, there is an air-hockey, table-tennis and pool table. The swimming pool at the complex is lovely and helped to stave off boredom but other evening entertainment was practically non-existent. -it was a long 2 weeks! We hired a car for 4 days which was very reasonable cost-wise approximately £35 per day. We were able to see about the island a bit. The 2 main towns on the island Cuitadella and Mahon were explored twice each and a bit of shopping was done but I have 3 boys and a husband who did not want to shop so there wasn't much for them to do except sit in a cafe or bar and play cards! Also the 'siesta' time between 2-5pm curtailed activities somewhat -so just to inform other travellers so they can plan accordingly. Bus travel takes ages and the journey from Fornells to Mahon which was only 18k took 1hr and 15 mins!
All in all my overall opinion of Menorca would be that it is too quiet for our family and the Tramontanas complex too remote unless you hire a car. The weather was lovely and if you are an older couple taking a quiet 5day break full board this is the place for you.
