Stayed for a week and we all loved it. We stayed in a level room so got checked in in the separate reception which was nice. The receptionist then showed us to our room and explained everything such as the air conditioning which was helpful. The room wasn't huge for the three of us but I knew that already, the... More

Wow - we had the most amazing holiday. Cala Galdana is a stunning bay & the probably the best beach on the island. The hotel is suitably positioned with every room having a sea view. It's recently been converted to a Melia property & the design is very stylish. If you can, book The Level as you have access to... More

Brilliant hotel. The hotel has a perfect location in the Cala Galdana bay. From driving up to the hotel entrance you are welcomed by the Melia staff. This continues as you enter the lobby with the reception staff. The hotel has a welcoming environment with the styling, smell and sounds. The room had a perfect view of the bay, designed... More

My friends and I booked a quick getaway from London to Menorca and happened to fall across the Melia hotel in the beautiful Cala Galdana. The hotel itself is quite modern and tastefully decorated with a fabulous lobby which overlooks the cove. Built into a cliff, you enter the hotel between the 8th and 9th floors. The hotel has several... More

This is all about the location and the staff, fantastic! We arrived early and requested a quiet room which we were given on the 5th floor and the side view room was lovely. A nice size bedroom, lovely bathroom, small balcony which we hardly used and a small fridge which was appreciated. The check in was very efficient and everything... More

We stayed in room 1028 which had a direct view to the sea. The rooms are modern and the finish is just as we liked it. The only downside was that the air conditioning seemed to be set that you couldn't get it to work very well and the weather was so hot that we found it difficult to sleep.... More

We last stayed here 20 years ago, and like many others were very concerned about the reviews earlier in the year - we needn't have been. The only hiccup we had was having to wait for a room, but this was our fault as we wanted a high up room for the view, and the wait was well worth it.... More

I submitted a review several years ago, but there has been considerable change since then. Rooms. We stayed on the ninth floor at the side of the hotel. The room has been refurbished and updated....

The views from the upper floors of the sea facing side of this hotel are stunning. The food in "The Level" restaurant was excellent and the waiting staff there were delightful. Sadly, though, the praise ends at this point. We were persuaded to book this hotel for a quick break holiday by the promise of a "grand premium" room as... More

We have had our beach holiday at this hotel nearly every year since 1985. Our children grew up coming here. My kids are now adults but they still want to holiday with us when we mention Cala Galdana (they bring our grandchildren as well now). There have been subtle changes over the years which we were always comfortable with them... More
