“very quiet but pleasant place”
Reviewed 14 February 2011

The appartments were ok for the money, spacious and reasonably clean. The pool area and gardens very nice. Problem with late arrival is that you have to walk to main hotel to get your key and there is nothing to advise you of this. Fortunately another guest was about and he told us. Resort very quiet, mostly closed in Sept. Two restaurants only in the square. Neither very good, terrible really. Holiday good though

The units are a little tired (peeling paint etc.) but are roomy and clean. Hot water readily available but the showerhead in our unit needed cleaning as a lot of the holes were blocked. Good sized balcony with table/chairs and a large clothes airer with pegs provided. We didn’t use the kitchen facilities, except for the fridge, but there appeared to be everything you would need to self-cater. Our apartment had a sea view but most would simply look over more units/pathways. Linen/towel change every three days when we were there. Small bar in pool area which closed the day before we left (22nd September). Full use of facilities at S’Algar Hotel and Hotel San Lluis where we also booked our taxi on day of departure – we were picked up at Vista Faro. Both hotels have free wifi and small selection of books in English, but none at Vista Faro. Also no laundry facilities as advertised, but we did find a laundry 5 minutes away with English owner. Apart from hotels mentioned above, restaurants are El Pirata and La Reina Isabel both of which are fine. The bar mentioned in other reviews was not open during our stay and we did not try the Asia Restaurant.

Vista Faro is perfectly located within the resort of S'Algar.

The apartment was roomy and functional. There is everything that you could possibly need for a self catering holiday which made this place great value for money. We booked through AlphaRooms.com and it cost just over £300 for 10 nights.

The small pool and area is nice and clean. The bar has friendly staff and drinks and snacks at reasonable prices.

The pool bar is the actual reception, and we arrival and departure coincided with the reception being closed. This was no bother though because the keys can be collected from the S'Algar hotel just 5 minutes walk away.

All in all we had a good time and we would recommend the Vista Faro if you're looking for a budget getaway in a quiet Menorcan resort.

Just returned from the Vista faro and these are a few things I would have liked to have known myself before going. The apartments are ok they are clean, the kitchen has everything you will need, while we were there it was very hot and there is no air conditioning (which I did know) but in one brouchure I looked at it did mention a ceiling fan but there are no fans which made the apartment very hot especially at night to sleep. The complex is amongst other apartments that are occupied by the locals and this can make it quite a noisy place at times. There are hundreds of mosquitos in S'Algar you will definitely need insect repellent!!. There are only a handful of places to eat, and at the Reina you will get eaten alive by the mosquitos if you don't keep a watch out. The Asia restaurant is very nice and would recommend eating there. Just one bar to go to 'The Dinky Bar' which is a nice little place and the drinks are cheap enough about 1.70 euros for a decent glass of wine. S'Algar is a very small resort no beach but overall I enjoyed it very much.

First,the bad points.having arrived at the apartments at 9.30 in the evening,there was nobody to greet us or tell us where our apartment was situated.The pool bar was closed.Fortunatly someone took pity on us and pointed out a notice pinned to a wall,telling guests to ring a number on arrival. Having done this and not getting through,we were told by our good samarition that there was a hotel five minutes walk away,that was owned by the same people.Eventually,having walked to the hotel,we were informed the number of our apartment and that it had been left open for us.Not a good start,especially when we had an 18 month child in our group. On the brighter side,the rooms were clean and well equipped.All have large balconies.The pool is well maintained but the pool bar does not open til 11am and was closed at 7pm.Apparently,it stays open alittle later in the season,which was no help to us.Overall,we enjoyed our stay,and now we know the booking in procedure,would return

We were bumped to the Los Naranjos hotel on the day we arrived due to being "overbooked"........this did [--] me off a bit because I had hand picked Vista Faro and paid extra for the sea view.
Once in Los Naranjos I got straight onto the phone to the Cosmos rep and she sorted it so that we would be moved back to Vista Faro the next day.
The room was clean and spacious and the view was superb.
This was my first "sun, sea and sand" holiday and it was great.
This isn't the place for youngsters to go on the [--].
Definately more for the family or olders couples.
Brillant.

Very spacious apartment especially for 2 people,newly decorated and everything spotlessly clean, very helpful and friendly pool bar staff, pool area very good with plenty of sunbeds for the amount of apartments (34). Situated right on seafront, but no sandy beach, Carla Alcalfar 20 minute walk across the cliffs, Punta Prima 50mins, but a beautiful walk. Mahon (mao) well worth a visit, harbour trip (10 Euros) very good. Bus goes regularly 1.60 euros each way. Taxi from Airport approx 25 euros. Car hire for 2 days recommended to see all the bays. We travelled independantly and found the whole break very good value. Nightly entertainment at nearby St Luis Hotel. Only one supermarket in resort.
