Sol Parc Apartments
Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

We have just got back from a week all inclusive at Sol Parc, Son Parc. Yes the rooms are a bit out dated, but they are spotless. The staff and service second to none and would say that the food was the best at an all inclusive we have had in Europe. We all enjoyed this fantastic family destination and will go back next year! A massive well done to the management of this facility and Jose for all the drinks and milk for our room on the first night after arriving late.

We chose self catering, which is definitely the better option.
The Sol Parc apartment complex is very nice. 5 mins to the beach, with beautiful clear water. It has two pools, the smaller of which we preferred as there were less childten. Although that depends on whether you want to relax or if you have children :). It has a supermarket but don't use it, the ones outside are much cheaper.
The apartments were basic, but clean. Be sure to check the position of the sun for the balcony. We were given one surrounded by trees, but they gladly gave us a different room when we requested, so we can have the sun in the evening. Negatives for the apartment would be that the fan is pretty much useless, and I was maybe expecting at least mosquito nets on the bedroom window. There are two places I would like to recommend. The Mucky Duck, an English pub just outside the hotel complex, very friendly and the pub grub is really nice. The place above the pub is very nice, excellent food also. If you want to rent a car, much cheaper outside the complex also. Overall very happy. We had 25+ degrees everyday.

We went for the self catering which worked perfectly for us. There's a mini super market just down the road (much better than the hotel complex shop). The complex has its own raised timber walkway to the beach (takes a few minutes) There are a few restaurants nearby. There are two pools. One small shallow one with two levels, perfect for toddlers (OBVIOUSLY SUPERVISED) and young children who are learning or just want to splash around. The big pool is a good size with some shade from the trees to. Menorca itself is great for families with young children. There's a
water park and lots to discover and if you're there at the right time of year they have a horse and cart racing, err, thingy and a big horse celebration (they have a big thing about horses) and also a festival with a fabulousj drumming band. If you're young and want to par-tay then Menorca IS NOT the place for you. Lastly do not leave without visiting Cuitadela - the market place, the pedestrians shopping areas and fresh fish from one of the harbour restaurants - it's like a mini Puerto Banus. Have a subset dinner there - priceless.

This was probably the best vacation I was on!

Menorca is generally full of really kind, polite, generous and always smiling people.

I can't say a bad word at all, maybe there were some details I would consider important to improve such as more quality beds.

Boarding was also full of typical spanish dish which I really appreciated. The personnel was lovely and amazing and always helpful. Rooms were always clean, although they were a bit older equipped and furnished which I did not mind at all. I was totally amazed by the location - the resort is situated in the middle of pine forrest so you could smell the pleasant scent of pines everywhere.

Room Tip: I would choose room 218

After booking last minute and reading previous reviews didn't expect too much. However, we were pleasantly surprised, yes it's 2 star but the apartments are very clean and staff very friendly. It was the last week of the hotel been open before it closed for the winter, we had to walk to the hotel next door for all meals. Not a problem as it was only a couple of minutes walk, the food was fine always a choice and again staff very helpful. Entertainment was provided by a team of 4, alternate nights 2 entertainers per night, by far the girl (only one in the team) was the best. She danced and engaged with the kids non stop, helped along by another guy. The other couple just played music, one would half heartily dance. The tall one of the two spent his time, wandering off down the path or chatted the females up.

The complex is vast and yes there are a lot of trees but I imagine in the summer they provide welcome shade. The pool is huge and the lovely beach is very close.

All in all we enjoyed our week in the Sol Parc, it was great value and would be ideal for families. As a couple we would have preferred a little bit more going on in the evening, but too be fair it was end of season and we choose a quiet resort. I would certainly return if the price was right.

Booked on the Friday morning, went on the Monday! Sol Parc is an apartment complex clearly intended for families but quiet at this time of year (reputed to be closing next week for the season) - fabulous value for half board booked as a late deal - buffet style meals with reasonable choice and salad, in almost what almost resembled a giant playroom in the sister hotel opposite - if you want exquisite cuisine this is not really the place to come - however we were delighted with the relatively large swimming pool, cool water temperature, and proximity to the sand dunes of Son Parc beach which are largely unspoilt by the usual tower block architecture which has tended to ruin the Balearics. There are some curious caged birds within the complex, which somewhat added to the illusion you were in a forest. . Quite unseasonably hot temperatures for end of Sept/early Oct, made sleep a little difficult, as no aircon available - this may be a problem in high summer. Most apartments appear to be standardised with kitchenette and balcony. The fact that the complex is geared towards the German/Dutch market, rather than the English, is only a problem for xenophobes. The evening 'entertainment' was hardly a strong point to put it mildly, although staff were clearly doing their best, and again this was only an issue if your holiday tends to revolve around the expectation to be entertained. This is not a 4* or 5* complex, and doesn't pretend to be so. Staff friendly and obliging, particularly at reception.This is a lovely area of Menorca, with access to the Cami de Cavells footway which circumnavigates the entire island, and within easy bus reach of Mao, the capital and Fornells fishing port, another beautiful area.

Room Tip: Most of the complex is overlooked by pine trees, ie quite shady, or spooky, whatever your take on th...

After reading tripadvisor reviews on this hotel, we booked this holiday not expecting anything too upmarket. What we found, once we'd been around the expansive grounds a few times in the dark, as it was so poorly signposted, was a very basic but clean apartment. Breakfast is ok, if you enjoy having your bacon and under cooked eggs lobbed on your plate by a very hot and exasperated cook !!!!!, first evening meal was lovely with a good choice, but after that, the next three nights meat choice was chicken wings/thighs !!!!. That all said, for families and couples this is a lovely peaceful resort, set in lovely surroundings. The beach is a 5 min walk down a steep but safe walkway, not too good for those with breathing / mobility problems though. The bay is beautiful and the water calm and shallow, which is ideal for children. A short bus ride to Fornells is well worth a visit, very beautiful and quiet harbour, although we didn't see any sign of a beach, so don't pack your bucket and spade. All in all we had a very peaceful holiday in a beautiful location but I would advise you to go for the bed n breakfast option and then enjoy a meal at any of the off site restaurants., although the choice is limited. There a 2 well maintained pools on site, though we didn't use them. Please don't come and expect great entertainment as it was very basic and aimed towards children. We would come back but definitely not all inclusive.
