Travelled with my husband and 3 children Oct half term. Although this was at the end of season and many of the shops and attractions had closed we had an amazing holiday. The views and the beaches were amazing. Food was good and even found something for my 3 very fussy eaters. Hotel was clean and of a high standard.... More

Beautiful location - very comfortable stay - shame they had to close the terrace restaurant as they were approaching the end of season slowdown - food selection was great and several items freshly cooked for you if wanted - we went half board which worked really well - sandwiches available from the hotel shop and plenty of eateries in the...

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

We stayed at the Sol Gavilanes for 14 nights from 15 October – the hotel is in a spectacular location overlooking the horseshoe shaped bay. Our room was on the 8th floor and had spectacular views over the bay. We had expected a restricted view room and were delighted. The room was modern, two large single beds which were remarkably...

What a place to go to. What a perfect view and what amazing staff work at the hotel. I can not rate this hotel highly enough. I have read that the restaurant staff were grumpy? We don't agree and thought all staff were pleasant, amusing and very friendly. Special mentions to Manuel (loves a high five), Pablo, Daniel, Juanan, Isobel,... More

The Sol Gavilanes is situated in a perfect position overlooking the beautiful bay/beach of Cala Galdana. The hotel is very clean & modern. The food on the first week was very good with lots of choice, quality & well presented, but the second week was not so good. Our only downside was the grumpy restaurant staff and the fact that...

Great place to relax and play, go for a room with a sea view, its worth the extra, we hired a boat from the beach at the bottom of the hotel and cruised around Menorca. I will definitely be going back.

I think some people writing reviews of this hotel need to chill. The location of the hotel , with stunning views over the bay, is awesome. We emailed the hotel beforehand and they kindly upgraded us to a family room with a seaview - two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a sitting area, an area for luggage, loads of wardrobes and a... More

We had a terrific stay here for two weeks. The hotel made us welcome from arrival and everybody from the maids to bar staff did everything they could to ensure our holiday was the best they could make it. The buffet was superb offering such a great selection for breakfast and dinner - if you didn't find something you would... More
