Like Leogee I had a week booked at the Melia Gavilanes in May but had to get it transferred. I paid a visit to Cala Galdane on 12th May and have attached photos of the hotel and it looked like more than 2 weeks worth of worth still to do. However, the Melia website appears to be taking booking for... More

You really can't beat this area of Menorca. It's lush,green natural and the hotel is right on a beautiful horseshoe beach. The evenings spent on the beautiful terrace are just wonderful. It has the best location in the whole of the island. The staff are polite and helpful and the hotel is clean and well maintained. A lovely place to... More

We stayed at the Hotel Sol Gavilanes for 7 days in September 2014. The hotel is situated on the magnificent beach, Calla Galdana, one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. The hotel is very spacious, clean and nicely decorated. We stayed in a large Junior Suit with very comfortable beds, clean bathroom and towel change on a daily... More

Sol Gavilanes is a large hotel with friendly staff, it's in a great location and has amazing sea views. However, the rooms and restaurant are looking a bit tired and dated compared to other parts of the hotel but they were clean and comfortable. We went half board which worked very well, food was good always plenty of choice. The... More

I was after a hotel with a gorgeous beach front and I found it! We tried other beaches close by (e.g. Macarella) but Cala Galdana was more superior - cleaner, clearer water and not at all busy as the only people that goes there are those staying at hotels close by and there were not many hotels around. Food was... More

August saw our 7th visit to the hotel and probably our last. Arriving after a baby infested flight (please Thomson, offer a child-free flight option) we tried to check in. On advice from the hotel we had emailed prior to the holiday to request a higher floor to get the benefit of the view (absolutely the ONLY reason why you... More
