“Great staff and entertainment. Lovely swimming pools.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

The rooms were really nice and perfect space to move around in. The staff were really nice and helpful. They had activities for children and adults through the days and in the evenings. They had shows on in the evening. They had an arcade upstairs and a gym. The swimming pool was really big.There were buses just outside the hotel to go to Mahon and different places in Menorca.The hotel was perfect for families and children there is lots of things for them to do. Overall I loved the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for bottom floor if with little kid or pram. Not bottom floor if you want a good view.

Been back nearly a month from this hell hole, all the reviews i've read come back to the same problem = food = crap = cold = uncooked, beds come from the namesake Bedrock, as hard as they come, wasps, well what can i say is that we had a rant at the manager and the next day lo and behold the wasp exterminator turned up, he was gone as quick as he came but the wasp nation deteriorated for a couple of days and then returned with reinforcements. 11 days stuck in the middle of nowhere is'nt my cuppa tea especially when the bus only came at 09-00, 13-00, 1700 and 19-00 after that time you were sranded. The best thing about this holiday was the plane trip home.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 1st floor, they're bigger and take you own travel kettle.

The hotel isnt as bad as the reviews make out, the staff were all nice, and the food was okay for the price we paid. It was sometimes a little cold, but the spanish dont eat food like us english. Overall i havent got anything to moan about as we had a lovely 10 nights there.

Room Tip: We had a 2nd floor room, people who were on the 1st floor we're moaning about ants but we had no...

after a recent stay at this hotel i would like to say that complex and entertainment was good but the food let it down it was either overcooked or very underdone but always cold the joke in speaking to other holidaymakers was about the food buses from the complex ran every 4 hours to the capital and the complex was in quite a remote place

My partner and I took our 1year old, and were extremely nervous after reading about wasp infestations and food causing illness ect, but this simply was not the case. We've just returned after a week at this hotel, and it was absolutely fantastic.
Granted, there were wasps, but it wasn't as bad as some people have made out. I'll admit, I'm terrified of them, but You leave them alone, and they leave you alone. If allergic, i wouldn't take the risk, because you never know, but none of us got stung, and to our knowledge, none of the other guests did while we were there. They did enter the bar area, but were never in the restaurant. The floor in the bar would be slippery when wet, however there were signs saying not to enter wet and bear feet to prevent slipping hazards, and all people on our trip appeared to take note of this so it wasn't a hazard. They had burger, sausage and chips on offer daily in the bar, along side of pastries biscuits cakes and drinks, but had much more variety in the restaurant. It was all well cooked, and absolutely delicious. People were complaining while we were there about choice, but there was plenty. Lets be realistic, when going to a different country some of what's gonna be on offer is going to be local delicacies, but that's the same wherever you go, and some people aren't prepared to try it. My partner did, and loved it. I'm more of a fussy eater, but I never had to eat the same thing twice in a few days. They had steaks, fish, chicken, rice, various salads and veg, pizza, burgers, sausages, soups, breads, pasta, pork, lamb, various potatoes and then their own styles of food too. And that's just a few things from the top of my head. Our little one loved it too, and loved the fruits on offer. There were also plenty of mouthwatering desserts. The resort is pushchair friendly, having ramps to the reception, the restaurant, and the bar. It was a step up into our room, but that wasn't a concern with the pushchair.
There are two beach areas five minute walk from the resort, one has steps and a ramp, the other steps and a more rural walkway down. Both quiet nice. We saw some wildlife down the more rural walkway, it was lovely. There's quiet a lot to see if you go looking for it, or even ask at reception what walks you can do. They sent us on one with beautiful scenery, and we found another. Both amazing.
There's a bus service to the capital, Mahon. if you visit this resort its a must to go here. We went twice, and loved it. One of the days we went on the glass bottom boat trip. The bus stops at another location too, we didn't stop here, but that's also an option if you do visit this resort.
There seemed a lot do with children here, maybe not older teens, but that's just from what I saw. The entertainment team organised a variety of activities for everybody to take part in. We didn't with little one being so young, but we saw a fair few people appearing to have fun taking part.
Some people have written that the pool was never cleaned, our room was opposite the pool, and with the little one we were up rather early each morning, and every morning without fail there was one or two workers cleaning the pool and pool areas. The water was rather cold, but I presume that to be due to the time of year, but once in you soon warmed up. There was plenty of loungers available.
The room was lovely, and well cleaned on a daily basis if you wanted it to be, besides a Sunday and a Tuesday. The mattress was quiet a firm mattress, and my partner loved it. I have a bad back anyway, so couldn't hack it and slept on the sofa by the end of the week. Having said that, it didn't ruin the holiday, as the sofa is one you can pull together to make a double bed anyway so the room could sleep more people.
The local shop was a spar store. if you need it, you'll buy it, as there isn't another shop unless you go into another town. We brought a few things here, not too bad in price, and quiet a variety. We took all our nappies wipes and milk powder with us, to save having trouble not knowing what the shop sold. They do sell nappies and wipes, but if you take a young baby I definitely recommend taking your own milk powder if bottle feeding. See how the weight goes on your suitcase, and if possible nappies and wipes. But they do sell some, and they sell few baby jars too.
There are two play areas for children, out little one loved them!
We used a cot from the hotel, the mattress is slightly small for the cot, but there wasn't an actual issue.
All the staff we met were extremely polite and helpful.
I would recommend this hotel, just bear in mind there are a few wasps, if taking a baby take your own milk powder if required, and explore the area to get the best out of your holiday.

Lovely place, I can't understand what the bad reviews are about, they had 3 meals a day downstairs with the option of chips, Burgers and Hot dogs at lunch. The rooms were basic, but clean all the same. It had a TV, and was air conditioned with a balcony and It was cleaned daily. The pool was very big, with an outside eating area, sunbeds and lovely music that'll have you all dancing a long at the end of it! My only complaint about the pool area was through no fault of their own and it would be the wasps. Short walk to a little town and small beach, but very relaxing. The bar was well staffed too. The entertainment crew was great, but I have heard that unfortunately some of them are leaving. It was fairly lonely around there but there were buses going to Mahon, cheap and regular. The place overall was a very big place and catered well for different languages. There was Internet available at reception, Mini golf, mini club (For kids), A children's playground, Tennis courts, football courts and a multi-purpose court. I personally didn't see a bouncy castle or trampoline, and didn't go into the fitness suite.We had a go on the Yellow Catamarans in the port mahon, and the fish's were a magnificent sight! At Grupotel, like most all inclusive's, we had to wear a band and I advise you to keep moving it up and down your arm whilst sun bathing, or you are most likely to get a sun tan line :L Taxi's were €15! Lovely beach in son bou with sunbeds available to hire (2 sunbeds and umbrella for €17), Banana boats and slide pedalos which were AMAZING! Although if you are going on a Banana boat, close your mouth and hold you nose when turning a corner!!! Overall a great place, and I recommend it!

i returned from this holiday on the 3rd of october but am only getting around to writing this review now as the day after we came home i started suffering from gastroentiritis and am still recovering.
it rained for 5 days of our trip and it was dangerous to leave the apartment due to the slippery steps. our room was not what we expected.the travel cot was all ripped and just dumped outside on the terrace with the wasps so we didnt use it.we slept on the couch every night because the beds were so uncomfortable you might aswell have been sleeping on the tiled floor. we had an issue with our air con but i must admit the reception staff were very good and sorted it out immediately.
there was absolutely nothing for our 19month old to do on this holiday which was really annoying as thompsons recommended this place for us and it was booked back in april (not cheap).there was a creche if thats what u call it... it was dirty and outdated. the entertainment in the day was useless and hardly anyone joined in. the staff were not that enthusiastic but then again it is the end of the season so i am sure that is why ( that was there excuse for everything).. the baby pool was full of mould at the bottom and there is no non slip surface to one side of the pool and my daughter slipped on it and bust her upper lip... i was not happy and we did not return to the pool...

the food was never labelled correctly and was always cold.yes there was loads of choice but none of it particularly appitising. i noticed most people were eating from the childrens buffet in the evenings as there wasn't one at lunch time due to it being the end of the season. the fish and chicken was never cooked through.the rice was raw in the paella.. the best thing was the bread in my opinion.

we didnt stay any night for the evening entertainment as it was too late for our daughter but she really liked the mini disco and one of the women gemma was absolutely brilliant with the younger children during the mini disco.

the coves are non existant...not even worth the walk down the hill.. there is nothing outside of the resort but mahon was nice..there were some really good quirky shops if you enjoy spending your holiday shopping.

so anyway overall we had a horrible holiday and i would not recommend for anyone but especially young families and it was full of old people anyway...
