“VERY BUSY-No Air Conditioning at night when you need it!”
Reviewed July 25, 2011

HOTEL was very busy -all animation is in German- Animation team RUDE! They didn't answer us when they realised we weren't German-we answered back in fluent Spanish so our fellow French and Spanish guests were also ignored! However we all
enjoyed our stay- we found the resturant to be excellent with always something available to eat and the standard of food was excellent-Breakfast was our favourite meal and in the afternoon the Snack Bar always had a long queue-partly due to their only being one lady serving the food which was delicious -Pizza slices were lovely although not always available good selection of Baquettes and rolls- Evening meals delicious- Spanish staff in resturant very helpful Pity about the German Animation team otherwise The review would have been 100% satisfied with our stay

To be Honest I can´t complain about this hotel. The rooms are very clean and you could see that it was renorvated last year. We were in an apartment with a separated bedroom; 5205 and we had seeview. The service in the reception is very good, we had some problems with our transfer and they called our transfer directly.
The staff in the bar is very friendly, you can see they work hard and have always a smile on their face! We booked Half Board, so we had dinner and breakfast. The drinks are incluided in the restaurant. After one week we decided to buy all inclusive (just for 10€ a day extra and teenies 5€) because the food is delicious.
Of course it is not fish and chips, more Spanish food but realy nice and I think that if you complain about the food you have to be an excellent cooker at home......
The entertainment was rubish. Al in German, we were the only English family but they didn´t care about that. In the weekend there were a lot of Spanish guests, so we had Saturday night live music.

I would recommend this hotel but.... It is for Germans, don´t go there because of the entertainment because they are only for the Germans guests. The touroperator is called Calimera and this is a German company thats why.

although reading the reviews that this was a german based hotel,i never had a problem with it because so was my last holiday to menorca and they seemed friendly and ok,, but this time around they were dam right rude, pushing in at the pool bar, looking at us if we were all aliens it made us all ( party of 8) feel really uncomfortable, our room should of been ready at 2pm but we didnt actually check in till 3, the food was disgusting, i think i had food poisioning at one stage as i wasnt well for 2 days, the repetivness of the same food over and over got boring and dis-heartning that we eventually ate out,what you saw plenty left the night before you saw for dinner and tea the next day and night. preferred the snack bar, this food was ,NICE,,,
bar staff seemed quite friendly at first but seemed to get arrogant as the holiday went on apart from EVA she was nice, all bar staff and restaurant staff seemd to be working long long hours and all seemed tired and phased out at times.
the kids club WELL... what can i say be ok if u wa german i suppose so was entertainment all in german how rude!!!!! i was told by the hotels rep that they all can speak english but chose not to....(ok,, wont be going there again) she also told me that calimera is our british version of thomson.
apart from all this my room was nice, garden area and pools were nice but couldnt get to the big pool (yer u guessed full of germans got there first)......receptionist were kind friendly, hotel was clean tidy etc and garden areas...
our room 4110 was located at the back of the small pool, we were in at the very end of the apartments in the middle of 3 apartments floors (2nd floor), never had a good nights sleep as you could hear the generator or whatever it was on the ground floor all night n day it got very annoying, it sounded like a toilet was constantly being flushed 24/7
the spa was very nice and made good use of it
had a ok holiday overall but wouldnt go back ...EVER

The morning we got there, we were told that our room wasnt ready and we had to stay for one night down the road in another hotel!! We can still use es talalay facilities and the temporary hotel as well. The temp hotel had no air con ( most awfull night sleep ever) and very loud possibly the worst room in hotel. This didnt please us at all, they also paid for a taxi to take luggage as well, staff was very understanding about this. Next morning we was then told we cant get into room till 2pm and it was all german speaking with no translation for entertainment, this really frustrated me and gf and kids.
I phoned my operator wanting a transfer to a multinational hotel. I was offered another hotel in calador centre but to my further anger had to pay for All inclusive (which i already paid for!!!!)
We decided to stay, as the hotel itself was very clean and nice, and we ended up with one of the best rooms on resort!! Sometimes better devil you know!!! After day and a half (out of our 7 day holiday)of being messed about, we decided not to let this spoil our holiday and in the end we met some other english families who our kids and theyre kids spent the holidays together. After all the hassle in the beginnning we actually had a good holiday very relaxing. The snack bar was actually quite nice and plenty of drink on all inclusive including spirits. The buffet food was okay not great i personally didnt like but there was always something to eat.... Entertainment was pretty dire, but we managed playing cards and drinking with another family, so it was alright in the end. The local town cala egos has some nice restaurants and bars, we spent two nights eating there.
One of the reception staff was rude (think she was german) but another little spanish girl was very kind to us, and gave us a fan for the nites (since air con turns off after 11pm)
Shame about the kids games being spoke in only german as my kids couldnt join in, i could play the sports as everyone knows how to play volleyball or football etc. Some germans are rude and push in at buffet but most are very friendly. Just beware they are very competitive at sports lol

Overall good holiday apart from mess up at beginning, and nice quite area surrounding hotel......

I wont go again though becuase of its german preference to everything.

We have used Interval International for timeashare exchanges for app.18 years and this exchange was the worst ever. The apartment was not up to timeshare standards with poor furnishing, broken central for 4 nights( the weather turned very cold at night) blankets smelling of dampness, no british tv programmes and a resort run for German tourists, we were the only British couple staying that week. The resort is at least a 30 minute walk to Cala D Or or 5.50 euros by taxi. Not to be recommended.
