Stayed here with my two young children, they had such a fabulous time we never needed to leave the hotel, the apartment was great with plenty of space and food was lovely. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed August 2015, having previously stayed at the HV Menorca. This site is a lot bigger than Menorca. The positives are similar.

The food was similar, very acceptable, never a... More
