“A very nice week”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

we booked a week via the internet and found we were travelling with 1st choice. This was a positive as it always pays to have a holiday rep on hand in event of problems. Fortunately there were none.
We arrived at the hotel at mid day and found our rooms ready for occupation which was a nice surprise as some hotels insist on you waiting till 3 or 4 pm before they let you in.

The room was fairly large with twin beds and adequate wardrobe space. There was also a fridge/mini bar available for use at extra cost.

The hotel looked at as though it had been recently refurbished and was in pretty good order all round

We felt that the hire of the safe was a touch expensive at 30 euros for a week

The pool area was nice and clean and there were enough sunbeds to go round, although the prime spots were taken by 7.30 am and this was early June in low season. I'm not sure what it would be like in peak season when the hotel got really busy.

The location of the hotel was not ideal if you wanted to get around, and for any body with walking difficulties it would be a pretty definite no as the areas surround the hotel were all terraced with steps up and down. It was serviced by a regular bus service to Cuitadella but if you wanted to go any where else it would be bus to Cuitadella and then on from there.
There was one bus which went direct to one of the other resorts at 10 am but this was always packed and difficult to get on.

There was also nowhere to walk to from the holtel other that the few shops in the local town. The reps said it was possible to walk to Cuitadella but it was an inland walk along the roads and would take an hour plus.

The food in the restaurant was ok. There was nothing wrong with it, but it was the usual free for all at the buffet counter and the queues got quite long at times. Also the waiting staff seemed to be hovering waiting for you to put your fork down so they could grab your plate before it got cold.

These are pretty minor things and all in all the catering was pretty good.

We varied things a bit by eating out a couple of times and can recommend Bianco's in the local town. The food was good and well priced.

There was a tiny beach at the bottom of the cliff that the hotel stood on. The water was crystal clear, great for snorkelling and as a bonus warmer than the swimming pool.

Overall we had a really nice relaxing week, but we both felt that a month later in the season and things would have been a bit different as the sunbed and restaurant situation would have been worse.

The staff were nice and helpful especially at reception.

Would we go again ? probably not mainly due to the hotel location

I stayed here for 1 week with my boyfriend for our first holiday away together and we have little complaints about this lovely hotel. The hotel is located in a picturesque place, the surroundings to the hotel were beautiful and very clean.
We stayed all inclusive and we found the food very good, different every day and food kept hot and plates were warm which was nice. Our room was clean and spacious with a good sized wardrobe and everything we could of needed and TV had access to UK channels which was good.
The pool was cold but fine once you had jumped in and started swimming. There was activities going on throughout the day for children and adults run by the entertainment staff in the hotel, the children were presented with certificates at the kids disco which we thought was nice and the adult games looked a good laugh whist having a couple of drinks by the pool.
The entertainment at the hotel was fun, enjoyable and different to what we had seen before. One night we thought was very good was a casino night run by the entertainment staff, it got everyone involved including children with prizes from the hotel for the winner. This type of night was different to sitting and watching a show and was a very good laugh. Other nights involved a tribute act, parrot show and a acrobatic show which were good to watch, also before each show there was a kids disco and bingo.
There is a town just a five minute walk away or you can get a bus which runs regularly from outside the hotel which is very cheep. The town is very accommodating and has lots of nice bars and restaurants if you fancy a change from the hotel.
During our stay at the hotel we went on two day trips one was to the water park 'Aqua Rocks' there was only a few slides but good for families with young children, we personally enjoyed the wave machine and was good for a day out. Our second excursion was a boat trip which was advertised in the hotel, starting at 10am until 5pm we saw different areas of the island and found it very entertaining.The staff at the reception were very helpful, they gave us information about these trips and how to get to and from the water park and boat trip.
We would defiantly revisit this hotel and highly recommend it!

We came home yesterday after a perfect 10 holiday. This is the second time my husband and I have stayed here.
We couldn't have asked for anymore, lovely staff, different food every evening with lots to chose from.
The location of the hotel is perfect, not too close or too far from shops/restaurants if needed and a beautiful cove next to the hotel.

Thank you for a lovely time
We shall be back again soon!

Just returned from two weeks at this lovely hotel. We had been previously (approx 10 years ago) when it was only half board. Now it is all inclusive which we think has killed off some of the small shops and cafes in the surrounding area. However, we enjoyed our stay and (as per last visit) the staff were very friendly and helpful. Some of them even remembered us which was nice! As it was our second visit, we received a half bottle of cava with compliments. Also as it was my husband's birthday during our stay, we were given a bottle of house wine for our dinner one evening. Because it is now all inclusive, we will not likely return which is a shame because it is a beautiful hotel.

Room Tip: If you want a good all-inclusive holiday, this hotel is perfect

Stayed al inclusive for one week end of May and found it to be a good choice. The food was really good quality, although slightly limited in choice on the salad bar. The house wine was available by the glass or a half litre carafe which we thought was a good option and was of reasonable quality, there was also the option to purchase better quality wines at prices that were not excessive. Staff throughout the hotel are very friendly, efficient and helpful. We had booked a superior room which placed us on the 4th floor with a suburb sea view and was well worth the extra expense. The bathroom was a great surprise with the shower area running the full length of one wall with a menorcan seascape mural covering the full wall.As is mentioned in a number of reviews the only real disappointment with the hotel is the evening entertainment which was dire, although the other guests seemed extremely happy with the nightly bingo. The site on which the hotel is located is superb with it overlooking a very pretty cove, although a few minutes walk away is the busy complex of Los Delfines which is the only mass tourist development Menorca has (fine if you think burger bars and an aqua park are what makes a holiday). However this is easily avoided by taking the local bus, which stops right outside the hotel, in to Ciuadella from here you can take a connecting bus from the terminus to numerous resorts on the island including Mahon, or you can spend the day wandering the maze of narrow streets and take in the wide variety of sites within Ciutadella itself.
If you want to consider an organised trip then the 'Jeepsafarimenorca' is well worth the expense, the staff are multi lingual, knowledgable and good fun. It is a day trip that can be enjoyed by all ages and they do take you down routes that are not obvious on maps and for which you do need a jeep (not just a 4x4).

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The entertainment staff make a huge effort to make everyones holiday enjoyable. I have returned to this hotel at least once every year and it doesn't lose its appeal. The small beach located at the back of the hotel is a great place to relax. Extremely good food as always with loads of choice giving everyone something to choose from. Salt water pools didn't bother me whatsoever but thought id mention it just incase. The kids club is great for children and the various games for kids do not interfere with the adults holidays. This is a fantastic choice for people who want to get away and relax for a week or two and for families.

Room Tip: some rooms on the lower floors will not have good views due to trees and/or facing the wrong way (in...

Stayed 04.06.14 for seven days. Excellent value. Food was good and varied - would defy anyone not to find something to eat. Loads of fresh salads and fruit; masses of choice at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Never once found it a problem finding a table. Room and shower was great. Flat screen TV gave access to UK channels. Never found difficulty in finding a free sunbed. Loved the pool (not cold at all??). Staff were totally focussed on their customers. And, when I fell down and cracked my head on the floor resulting in overnight stay in hospital Manger and staff could not have been more brilliant. Thank you.
