I love this beach......got to be one of the best and safest beaches in the world......the hotel is placed right in the centre overlooking the beach. We stayed on the 5th floor to ensure we woke up to this stunning view every day and to be able to sit on the balcony in the evening. The hotel is very popular... More

Cala Galdana is one of the most beautiful locations I have been in Spain. The beach is pristine and the water beautiful. And Hotel Sol Gavilanes is the main building landmark of the area. Attentive front desk personnel, comfortable and clean rooms, incredible views. The hotel is accessed from its top floor, being the rooms underneath, on the cliff. The... More

Visited this hotel in July. The location was fantastic, on the beach and a short, pleasant walk to Cala Galdana centre, along the promenade. where there was a few shops and bars. The hotel was clean, staff very friendly and the food was good. My only complaint is, that it was obvious from photographs in the tour operators brochure and... More

We like walking while on holidays and this was the perfect hotel for exploring some of the spectacular coves nearby. We have been traveling to menorca for about 25 years now but this... More

Great location for our first family holiday. Hotel is really quiet, beach beautiful with the nicest sea i have ever swam in. There isn't much to do but with a small baby that wasn't a problem and we just spent the days around the beach and hotel complex. Food was really nice in both of the restaurants and half board...

Stayed at end of September / beginning of October and weather was fantastic - very hot everyday. One of the reasons for going was the shallow cove for swimming but due to high winds one night a lot of jellyfish were blown in to the cove and not really safe for swimming for 3 / 4 days. Sun beds very... More

We stayed here for the last 10 days the hotel was open in October. The hotel is still as wonderful as ever. It was extremely quiet this time of the year as the resort closes for the winter months, which is a shame because the weather was fantastic! The staff continue to work extremely hard and a special thank you... More

We were a couple away with our 5 Year old Grandaughter. The Hotel is very good, clean and staff very friendly. We would go there again. The drinks are quite exspensive, it's less exspensive to drink out elsewhere. The entertainment was good.The childrens club was excellent, our child had a good time.The beach is great, straight on it and ramps... More

We had a very good holiday at Sol Gavilanes. Great food, very clean hotel, very good staff. My only reservation was with the quality and variety of the cocktails; they should know how to make a decent negroni or cosmo! Could also do with a couple of extra dark beers on the bar menu. Lovely location and great beach nearby.... More
